Arcadea - Army of Electrons

5 billion years after the last great extinction, where the impending collision of galaxies creates a new order of planets. Where cold, distant moons pledge alliance to new suns and expanding gas giants implode into black holes. Ancient drones, forever adrift, record toxic tales of love between dying stars. Where lifeforms in suspended animation, dream among the ice rings of Saturn and cosmic war wages among gods and planets. It is in this universe that ”Arcadea" reign supreme as the last surviving space wizards since the final extinction. The galaxy Andromeda spins headlong into the Milky Way with three intergalactic travelers in tow.

Drummer/vocalist Brann Dailor (MASTODON), Guitarist/keyboardist Core Atoms (ZRUDA, GAYLORD) and Keyboardist/guitarist Raheem Amlani (WITHERED, SCARAB) are said pioneers, the space wizards of psychedelic soundscapes where organic drums collide with synthetic keys to create an infinite transmission from an event horizon. They go by ARCADEA and their otherworldly brand of psyche-electric, synth-driven, metallic madness sounds alien yet somehow familiar.
ARCADEA's visionary, self-produced, self-titled debut was mastered by Colin Leonard (MASTODON) and features stunning cover art from renowned sci-fi fantasy artist Essy May.

”Arcadea” is 10 tune electronic commodore 64 odyssey with influences of MASTODON, recorded at Orange Peel Studios in Atlanta, GA. The self-titled debut record was released via Relapse Records this June.

Unlike their other bands, ARCADEA uses only keyboards in a unique blend of crushing, organic drums and psychedelic synthesizers. The music is at once electronic but not electronica, synthetic but not processed, heavy but not metal.

Today’s tune "Army of Electrons”, taken from the self titled debut album ”Arcadea”.

Igorrr - ieuD

"Savage Sinusoid" is the newest addition to Igorrr’s musical madness, released on Metal Blade Records. Completely sample-free, the album features vocalists Laurent Lunoir and Laure Le Prunenec, along with drummer Sylvain Bouvier, and showcases more musicians than any of Igorrr previous releases – one of those guests being CATTLE DECAPITATIONs Travis Ryan, who lends his vocals on “Cheval”, “Apopathodiaphulatophobie” and “Robert”, while we can see also Teloch, from Mayhem, performing the guitars and the bass on the track “Viande”.

While "Savage Sinusoid" draws from a plethora of genres, Serre has no intention of baffling or alienating potential listeners. As he explains:"I just want to make the music I love, without asking myself if it's gonna be too complex or too far from what people like. I want to make the music which has sense to me, with no restrictions, like a big party with metalheads, electronics nerds, classical and baroque-heads and gypsy violinists getting drunk and joining together to bring the best of every genre."

Initially influenced by the likes of MESSHUGGAH, CHOPON, CANNIBAL CORPSE, BACH, DOMENCIO SCARLATTI, TARAF DE HAIDOUKS and APHEX TWIN, traces of these artists can be found littered across Igorrr’s discography, but Serre has never been interested in remaining static or merely recycling ideas, and his work has dramatically evolved accordingly. It deeply explains how Igorrr’s music is such an explosion of creativity while keeping a cohesive universe records after records.

In recent years, Igorrr has also become a collective, rather than the work of one man alone, which has brought a new level of intensity into the group live representations.

Today's tune "ieuD" is taken from "Savage Sinusoid", enjoy this madness!

He Is Legend - Air Raid

"Air Raid", is a tune and video from Wilmington, North Carolina's rockers HE IS LEGEND, see it below. The song is taken from the band's latest album, "Few", released on April 28 via Spinefarm Records.

The band's current lineup is front man Schuylar Croom, guitarists Adam Tanbouz and Denis Desloge, bassist Matt Williams and drummer Sam Huff.

The band has enveloped from their previous musical style where they had a blend of Southern metal and Metalcore and now today they mixes a more softer style like Southern rock and alternative metal with a psychedelic rock sludge metal spice.

Like today's tune "Air Raid" where you get a wall of low rumbling sound, gentle vocals before it gets interrupted by a jangling, slack-wristed guitar riff and a vocal with more punch in it's melody. The Video was directed By Justin Reich.

Myles Kennedy - Year Of The Tiger

ALTER BRIDGEs lead singer Myles Kennedy is going solo, his latest single is the title tune from his upcoming solo album "Year Of The Tiger", set to be released March 9th, 2018 via Napalm Records. The effort was helmed by ALTER BRIDGE's longtime producer Michael "Elvis" Baskette.

"Year Of The Tiger" will feature a guest appearance by drummer Zia Uddin of THE MAYFIELD FOUR, a group Myles descries as his "first real national touring band" back in the late 1990s and early 2000s.

ALTER BRIDGE is expected to take most of 2018 off from the road while the bandmembers focus on other projects.

Writing for the follow-up to 2016's "The Last Hero" will begin next year, with tentative plans to release the effort in 2019.

Kennedy with his that unique and bluesy voice of his, he gives us a glimpse at his soul, known for his work with ALTER BRIDGE as well as SLASH FEATURING MYLES KENNEDY & THE CONSPIRATORS recently completed the highly anticipated record, which is available for pre-order in various bundle configurations at this location.

On "Year Of The Tiger", Kennedy embarks on his first venture as a solo artist by embracing musical elements and influences he hasn't explored until this point in his career. His appreciation for the blues and acoustic based music can be heard throughout the 12-song concept record inspired by the loss of his father when he was a child.

Anthemic spirit, fragile melodies and gritty acoustic guitars don`t turn "Year Of The Tiger" into a sad goodbye, but into a celebration of survival and life in all its facets.

Today's tune "Year Of The Tiger" taken from his upcoming solo debut. The video follows a reflective Kennedy as he travels through the memory of the loss of his father in 1974 — the year of the tiger.
