Donzii creates their own dystopia on debut album ‘Fishbowl’

On their debut album, the band said, “Fishbowl is a response to living in a time that appears to offer endless options with the same outcome. The mix of style and genre is an honest and intentional statement regarding the role of the artist as not only a conduit, but a mirror to the overstimulation we experience, in reality and in digital realms. Donzii, as a community, has developed a narrative of music which is very anti-development and pro-human collaboration. Our mission is to give the listener space in their experience – to enjoy the strangeness of this human condition and find more abundant ways to connect with the world around us.”

The Adam takes cues from 60’s rock n roll invasion with “I Don’t Believe’ ft. Lasse Storm

Taking his cues from the golden era of rock n roll’s “British Invasion” of the mid-1960s, this single comes out with vocalist Lasse Storm, on fine form as he rips into the track giving us a fine ol’ list of what he doesn’t believe in. It’s glorious in every way as it pokes holes and fun at modern day society and all its largess and hypocrisy.

Bang Camaro reunites with new single, “Too Fast To Fall In Love”

With face-melting guitar solos and a wall of gang vocals, Bang Camaro blasted onto the Boston music scene in 2005 as a reaction to the early aughts nostalgia for post-punk / new wave music. If bands like The Strokes, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and Interpol were going to wax nostalgic about bands like Joy Division, Bang Camaro was spawned to fill the void left by groups like Def Leppard and Skid Row.

Toeheads Release New Single From “A Cruel Winner’s World” LP

Detroit’s most unhinged and alluringly repugnant trio Toeheads (“it’s just Toeheads”) strike the perfect balance between untamed performance and ruminant composition. Their raucous sets reek of agitation, delirium, and sweat from frenzied mosh pits, making them positively unavoidable.

Decibel is now streaming “Death To All Tyrants”, which is the debut album from Canada’s Nihilist Death Cult (members ex-Pestilence, Abyss, Tribe of Pazuzu, Soulstorm). In the veins of punk, hardcore, and a little bit of grind, the album is 14 minutes of relentless music and direct lyrics that will grab you by the throat and refuse to let go. It also features guest solo appearances by Randy Harris (Tribe of Pazuzu) on “Obey & Consume” and Ian Mumble (Overthrow) on “You Get What You Deserve”. The lyrics attack the news media and societal conformity, the endless repetitive process of buying and consuming, and talk about slimy people who prey on others.

OUT NOW: Andy Ross “Make Christmas Great Again”

In an era of controversy surrounding the use of ‘Christmas’ instead of ‘Holiday’ or ‘Xmas’, Andy Ross makes his stance known, and he “don’t care who it might offend.” Any follower of the entertainer knows his Christian values, with weekly prayers posted to his social media. In “Make Christmas Great Again,” he adamantly notes he will continue the celebration and symbolism of Christmas, even if the public is calling for it to not be mentioned by name in the name of inclusivity and not offending anyone. Andy Ross also mentions how the “Black Friday brawls” have taken away from the true meaning of the holiday – being surrounded by family and friends.

TOBi on his single “Hoodwinked”: “The character in the song is a child that upon witnessing issues in the home, it affects how he sees the world. He has a general distrust for systems and adults. What happens when the veil is lifted? As he gets older, he starts to see things for what they really are. He’s on a quest for truth. A very challenging quest. Process these complex emotions with big energy and set yourself free.”

Hard Rock Duo GEORGE LYNCH & JEFF PILSON Release New Holiday Single, Prep Another Collection of HEAVY HITTERS

“It’s A Wonderful Life” is simply a gorgeous power ballad that brings out the best in both Lynch and Pilson. Musically, the song has echoes of Tooth And Nail’s smash hit single “Alone Again,” with a beautiful, chiming acoustic guitar intro that gives way to epic, fist-pumping riffs. But lyrically the song couldn’t be more different – instead of regret and sorrow, “It’s A Wonderful Life” boasts a surprisingly optimistic and hopeful outlook on a life’s journey despite the bouts of doubt and indecision. Since the song borrows its title and refrain from the popular 1946 Frank Capra Christmas classic, it seems only fitting that the single is being released just as this year’s holiday season is getting into full swing.
