Blu DeTiger Drops New Single And Visual, “Elevator”
“‘Elevator’ is an upbeat, tongue in cheek way of expressing how I feel when I’m stuck in the elevator (of life). It’s about moments when I’m down and need to be taken back up,” explains Blu DeTiger. “The song is about turning a bad situation, like being caught in an elevator with someone you don’t like or just feeling down, and going through it and getting past it. It’s encouraging. The lyric ‘I could be a big shot too’ reminds me that I can take control of my own journey and path.”

OXYTOXIN Release New Single “Disorder”
OXYTOXIN are offering up another taste of their upcoming album, Don’t Lose Your Head, with new single “Disorder”. You can stream the new track HERE.
The band comments on the new single: “Disorder is all about deep issues in society around law enforcement and the blatant illusion of control. We say that prisons help rehabilitate when in reality we’ve moved onto to a new form of slavery that sees men without means fall prey to a system of illogical chaos. The end goal is no longer to help humans unfortunately.”

Pennsylvanian death/sludge metal band BUZZHERD have unleased their new single “Menstrualcity” on all streaming platforms. The song will be released on their upcoming split with fellow sludge band PALE HORSEMAN on October 28, 2022.
The band comments “This is a song about fear of the unknown, and creating monsters from that fear. Menstrual city? Menstrual atrocity? A menstrual themed ode to our favorite police album? Some of our songs have a little deeper meaning than it would seem on the surface. Most of the time it’s dumb stuff that makes us laugh. We will leave it up to you to decide where this song lies.”

LEATHERWOLF Out For Blood With ‘Kill The Hunted’ Video And Digital Single
Showcasing the band’s innate ability to create hard driving anthemic metal, Kill The Hunted was conceived in 2008 by drummer/producer, Dean Roberts, but not revisited and completed until some ten years later after the band fractured in the wake of a short European tour. “I starting writing the lyrics in 2018, prompted by what led to the split with our old singer. So the song is very personal to me but it could apply to anybody in a similar situation,” reflects Roberts. “The lyrics are really about self-discovery – discovery about all the negative stuff that was around me. And that I had to do something about it and make a change. The second verse, “I can feel the darkness that surrounds me / killing everything that I create / wasteland’s rule by death and the forsaken / bind and tie the blood that runs within” speaks to those feelings. In the final verse, the song conveys a more positive, self-empowering tone though. I gotta give props to Rob (Math) and Keith (Adamiak) who helped finish the song in the studio and helped me telling that story to myself. It really made me realize that I needed to move on.”
R&B/SOUL NEWCOMER NOAH GUY RELEASES OFFICIAL VIDEO FOR NEW SINGLE “SMALL TALK CAROLINA”
Kihyun of Monsta X, Releases 1st Mini Album, YOUTH
Cathartic new single, “Bambi Legs,” was inspired by insecurity. When self consciousness rears its ugly head, it can lead to a lot of fear and second guessing. This is a lonely feeling yet we are oddly united in it as we all feel this way at least sometimes. The duality of the feelings in the lyrics through the instrumentation is magnified as the song sways back and forth between a heaviness to a more lightheartedness.

Waldo Witt shares “Love Like A Fire” & announces new LP
Waldo Witt spoke on the single’s origin: “‘Love Like A Fire’ is inspired by a 16th century poem written by a Spanish mystic. It follows the journey of the soul through the darkness and solitude of uncertainty, towards illumination and clarity. This poem has helped me in understanding my own struggles as being part of life’s path – thus opening the door to acceptance and growth.”
