DARK FORTRESS premiere new song from VENEREAL DAWN

unnamed (4)Formed in the Bavarian foothills when the second wave of black metal had grotesquely clawed out of the grave and into the unforgiving light, DARK FORTRESS benefited from the rotten fruits of right place and right time.  For the past two decades, DARK FORTRESS have gone from strength to strength. Across six full-lengths, the Landshut-based sextet stretched the boundaries of black metal, while remaining pure to the tenets of a genre that pivoted (and continues to do so) solely around the axis of the dark and all that resides hideously inside of it.

DARK FORTRESS are now set to release VENEREAL DAWN on September 2 via Century Media Records.  You can hear a song from the album streaming now at NEW NOISE Magazine’s website.

Poor Remy – Bitters Album Review

1For a few years it seemed as though pop music was heading into the modern era without real instruments. Auto-tune was being used for more than pitch correction, and whenever music was recorded using real instruments, the instruments were generally conditioned with electronic aids. The new EP by Brooklyn band Poor Remy, Bitters shows that they did not get that memo. We should all be thankful.

Alela Diane – About Farewell Album Review

1In a world where old fashioned folk is becoming popular again, this album is sure to be well received by listeners. Alela Diane has a voice that hits the ears easily, and the music manages to fill out the sound without distracting you from the words that she is saying. About Farewell is a collection of songs about looking back–despite what she says in the title track “Once upon the other side, it’s best not to look back.”
There are different types of break up records. Sometimes, an artist will focus solely on knowing that better things will come in the future, or attacking their ex. This is a well rounded album, inspired by a divorce in Alela Dian’s real life, and it shows the pain on both sides. Overall, the various emotions are expressed in the way that traditional folk music is, the words. Most of the songs do not picture heavy orchestration, with guitars driving the rhythm. The songs are generally very straight forward, and there are lines that listeners are sure to resonate with in one song or another. The lyrics are paired with timeless vocal melodies that bare resemblances to folk singers of the past, but there also appears to be some jazz influence in the vocals on songs like “The Way We Fall”. The words will hit hard, and the way that she sings makes sure that you know exactly how she felt while writing these songs.

The Cairo Gang – Tiny Rebels EP album review

1The Cairo Gang’s newest EP, Tiny Rebels, is being promoted as an angry collection of songs, full of momentum and movement. That is, unfortunately, as far from the truth as can possibly be. Stuck in the past and showing no intention on moving forward, the band is the epitome of retro-worship at its worse.
