Volbeat Share New Music Video For “Becoming”
Michael Poulsen says of “Becoming,” “it is a tribute to the mighty Entombed and our good friend L.G. Petrov, who sadly passed away. When we were about to record “Becoming,” it has that opening riff that is really inspired by Entombed, and we thought ‘why not use that same Boss HM-2 pedal on it that Entombed was known for using.’ That pedal is the signature Swedish distorted guitar sound, and is sounds disgustingly good. After we reorded the song we got the news of L.G.’s passing, and decided to dedicate the song to him since Entombed was the inspiration behind that riff. ‘Becoming’ is for you, my dear friend. Cheers!”
TALK: “RUNAWAY TO MARS”
Born Nicholas Durocher and raised in Ottawa, this multi-instrumental wizard is at ease on piano, guitar, drums, bass, banjo, harmonica and even the mandolin. He toured Canada with a country band in his teens and honed his songwriting and production skills while working with artists at Sony, Def Jam, Wax Records, Physical Presents and more. Then, just over a year ago, he unleashed the eclectic voice and character he’d envisioned for years – TALK – and started asking the questions that are now reverberating in everyone’s minds and social media posts:
VISERION Stream New Single “Reborn In Darkness” At No Clean Singing
New York City black metal band, VISERION are streaming their new single “Reborn In Darkness” at No Clean Singing. The song is set to be released on all streaming platforms August 26, 2022.

Rot Ken and 21 Lil Harold Count Rings like “Ginobili” in Their New Video
With a fiery flow and co-signs from some of the best in the game, Rot Ken is coming for the Georgia rap throne. Sharing a video for a melodic highlight from his recent Free Me mixtape, Ken mobs with Atlanta’s 21 Lil Harold in “Ginobili.” Created in collaboration with a long line of heavy-hitting producers, including JetsonMade and Neeko Baby of Spaceboy Productions, and Rio Leyva, Nico Baran, and Taz Taylor of Internet Money, “Ginobili” is a showcase for Ken’s freewheeling flexes: “I bеat on the bag, I beat up her back/A studio junkie, I’m still in the lab.” Lil Harold’s halting drawl is the perfect complement to Ken’s fast-talking styles, as the two rappers trade verses over hyperactive pianos and trampoline 808s. In the video, directed by Man Films, both rappers retreat to the outskirts of Atlanta to count their cash and spend quality time with a baddie.
Reggae artist debuts at # 5 iTunes Reggae charts just below Bob Marley
Ahead of the album, Hezron has released three singles. Title track “Man on a Mission” is a song about his personal journey as a goal oriented person but also offers encouragement to anyone in pursuit of their dreams, despite the inevitable challenges, while also honoring the heroes all around us. “Tik Tok I’m Coming” appeals to his more sensual side and the most recent single “Save The Children”, released on June 24th, is a heartfelt commentary on the alarming number of brutal acts committed against the youth, including physical and sexual abuse.

Maggie – Paralyzed
“The pull of Maggie’s debut single – yes, debut! – is instant. It’s a landmark, stirring track that submerges you from the first sweep of the cinematic string accompaniment, with Maggie’s vast, soulful vocals proving impossible to ignore.” – Wonderland
The cover art for the album was created by Mark Desalvo, whose instantly recognizable visual stylings helped to create the Fat Wreck Chords universe, a catalog held in high regard by Reinhart in his NorCal beginnings. During a trip to his parent’s house, Nick found an old photo in a high school note box and sent it Mark’s way. The objects and stylings in it time stamped to high school in the late 90s. Desalvo’s interpretation is a moment made to look like a renaissance-era painting, nostalgia made eternal.

More Kicks Unveil New Song from Upcoming Full Length for Dirtnap Records and Stardumb Records!
The band’s self-titled debut album was a concise and ragged lesson in pop songwriting dripping in melody, cynicism and energy.
‘Punch Drunk’ marks a new era for the band. Heavier, more expansive, more twists and turns. It veers from sparkling harmonies to fearsome riffing in the blink of eye, with never a second wasted. As with the first record, it was recorded live on to 2” tape. It’s bottled lightning and the sound of a band firing on all cylinders.
Out Today: Thanya Iyer’s ‘rest’
Thanya Iyer’s acclaimed 2020 full-length KIND was the result of years of touring, connecting with community, and an ethos based in self-love. But her newest release, rest, is approached from a different angle.
“rest is in many ways a reflection of myself, asking the question, “who am I when it all stops?””, explains Iyer, referencing, of course, the early pandemic and its halting effect on the world. Being stuck at home indefinitely allowed Iyer to examine her relationship to rest on a more critical level.
