EXISTENCE DYSPHORIA Release New Song “Sculpted Into Nothing” at Sleeping Shaman
London sludge outfit EXISTENCE DYSPHORIA have unleashed their crushing new song “Sculpted Into Nothing” via The Sleeping Shaman. The song is from their upcoming debut album Minus Negative which will be released on Sludgelord Records July 1st, 2022.
The band comments:
“Sculpted Into Nothing sets out our M.O. perfectly. An aggressive droning intro gives way to clattering riffs that savage the listener into a state of delirium before lulling you into a false sense of security preceding the final barrage of riffs. This is sludge with bad intentions. We are Existence Dysphoria!'”
Singer/Songwriter Timea Göghova Releases New Single & Video “Wild Storm”
After the single “I thought” Timea presents another single “Wild Storm”.
Chronologically “Wild Storm” was actually the first single, laying the foundation for the cooperation of Timea and Caro.
Timea’s voice is very controlled, showing obvious training (I’d bet operatic or classical). She frequently alters her tone for emphasis—at times quite nasal in a way that reminds me of Klaus Meine of Scorpions, at other times full and robust in her lower register.

New Release: Electronic Rockers OurGlassZoo share building and vibrant single “Unforgettable” off eclectic LP
Their new song, “Unforgettable,” is about that time in our lives when we are in between chapters and feeling a little stuck. A lot of us like to take a road trip to clear our heads and move on from what has been haunting our past. The song is precisely about that moment: when you are driving down a long winding road through a canyon or a valley, the windows are down and the wind is caressing your skin. You are on your own and finally have time to distance yourself and reflect.
