Taurus Damond releases new EP ‘Late Audition’

The artist known as Taurus Damond has released his latest EP record, titled, “Late Audition.” It is comprised of six original tracks for a total running time of approximately twenty minutes. A sleek, cool hip-hop album with clever lines and rhymes, solid back beats and a genial attitude, “Late Audition” serves as an excellent introduction to this up-and-coming artist.

Damond cites as main artistic influences a surprising variety of musical legends, such as Kanye West, The Beatles, Jay-Z, Electric Light Orchestra, Common, and DMX, but grew up in Texas with a wide exposure to blues and soul. He has since relocated to the music hotbed of Hollywood, CA, where he has found a place in the entertainment industry.

“I got into music at a very young age,” writes Damond, himself. “Being around other artists, I wanted to start writing music and share my message to the world.”

Damond’s music is more than mere entertainment, however. His themes are empowering and uplifting. His personal experiences and perspectives allow for an upbeat, intelligent point of view that sees life as an open door, however difficult it may at first appear.

He writes of this, “My music shares a positive, inspirational view to the world through the eyes of my life. I want people to realize through hard work and dedication your talent will take you so far in life. And no matter how many times you fall down, you have to get back up and keep fighting.”

Fighting is something Damond knows intimately. His career as a cavalry scout took him on two tours of duty in Iraq from 2006 to 2010, where he earned his Combat Action Badge, Parachutist Badge, Air-Assault Badge, and a bevy of others. He has been working towards musical victory since 2007 when he began writing songs, and released his first mixtape in 2010.

“Late Audition” by Taurus Damond is available online worldwide beginning early summer, 2013.

The artists known as Kill Bill G have released their latest full-length record album, titled, “Redux,” to widespread critical and fan acclaim. The Spanish duo have packed their latest synthpop record with instant classics that are sure to attract new fans and likewise appease the clamoring of their eager worldwide following.

Lovecraft, cosmic horror, sci-fi and horror movies, as well as series like ‘The Thing,’ ‘Alien,’ ‘Fringe,’ ‘The X-Files,’ and ‘Lexx…’ Some of their tracks have for inspiration the intrigue of what they call “femme fatale tales.” Those songs, they say, revolve around a noir world of crime and lust. Their sound dwells in this space for a bit before returning to their usual motifs of horror, outer space, and horror from outer space.

 

KBG cites as main artistic influences artists such as Gary Numan, OMD, China Crisis, and Front 242.

 

Kill Bill G started composing music in 2005 and self-published their first record, “Zero”, in 2006. The album met with great success, and was followed by the even better loved “Tunguska.” In addition to their three full length LPs, KBG has released an armada of singles and EPs which can be found online.

Paradox Please releases new record ‘State of Emergency EP’

Pittsburgh rock trio Paradox Please has released their new flagship extended-play record, “State of Emergency EP.” The album is comprised of four original tracks for a total playing time of approximately 16 minutes. A pounding, driving, powerhouse little record from these quickly rising titans of alt rock, the “State of Emergency EP” serves as an excellent introduction to the unique, East-Coast sound and style of Paradox Please.

Paradox Please cites as main artistic influences the likes of Muse, Silversun Pickups, Queens of the Stone Age, and Rage Against the Machine, attributes of which artists appear variously in Paradox’s own sound. Their “State of Emergency EP” has complex, wall-of-sound fullness that is extremely unusual for a three-piece band. Their tone is full of passion and adrenaline, and heavy on percussion (very heavy). Their song structures are gilt with harmonic, soaring guitar work and prominent, active bass lines. Fans of bands such as 30 Seconds to Mars and Muse will be well pleased with this early set, and particularly if the listener is fortunate enough to attend one of their infamous live performances.

Speaking of how they arrived at their style of alt rock, Paradox writes, “We really wanted to make something new sounding and fresh.” Their early material succeeds by utilizing intelligent lyrics on top of fast-paced, widely varied chord progressions. Their attitude towards innovation extends into the themes explored in their songs, too. “There are a lot of messages shared in our music,” they write of this, “the primary message being to find your own personal truths in the world and realize your full potential.”

Paradox Please is guitarist/vocalist James Beswick, bassist Brittany Glitsch, and drummer Chad Leonberg. They are winners in the Best Alternative Rock Band and Best Alternative Rock Music Video categories at the Pittsburgh Rock Music Awards for their single and video, “Singularity.”

Nehemiah 4:20 releases new LP ‘A Piece of Wood’

The band of bards for Christ known as Nehemiah 4:20 have released their latest LP album, “A Piece of Wood.” The album is comprised of 12 tracks of stunning bluegrass music with a southern gospel theme, faithfully acoustic and traditionally performed with neither pretense nor frills. With songs penned by Terry Hutson, James Tarrance, Don Preston, and Willodean Cox Allen, “A Piece of Wood” is not only a work of inspiration, but also one of the modern day’s most legitimate and remarkable albums of original bluegrass music, making it a must-listen record for music fans regardless of their personal spirituality. Nehemiah 4:20 are standing members of both the Arizona Bluegrass Association and the Desert Bluegrass Association in the United States.

The sound of “A Piece of Wood” is bluegrass in the truest sense of the term, utilizing guitars for their instrumentation. With classic harmonies and gorgeous, flawless performances on the part of all members, Nehemiah 4:20 have a tone that evokes celestial images and the heel-kicking greatness of American roots music at once. Fans of bluegrass gospel bands such as Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver, IIIrd Tyme Out, and The Isaacs will be enthusiastically pleased with “A Piece of Wood,” likewise.

The name of Nehemiah 4:20 comes from the Bible verse which states, “Wherever you hear the sound of the trumpet, join us there. Our God will fight for us!” The Biblical context of the verse regards the steadfast courage and faith of the Israelites during the harrowing rebuild of the walls of Jerusalem, who took heart in the sound of that musical instrument as a representation of God’s aid in their cause. The trumpet remains an important Judao-Christian symbol.

Regarding Nehemiah’s themes on their latest record, they write, “Nehemiah 4:20 believes that a part of their musical mission is to bring joy and laughter to the hearts and faces of those who listen to their music. Nehemiah 4:20 believes that laughter is an emotional response that helps prepare the soul for a journey of joy towards the Kingdom of God. Certainly God is indeed the Creator of mirth and laughter! Remember that everyone smiles in the same language. A Christian mentor once said long ago when he was just a boy that ‘if you don’t quit that smilin’, you’ll spill it all over your face!’ There’s one thing about a smile: one size fits all. It has been said that laughter is a medicine, so come ’bust a smile’ with Nehemiah 4:20 and let the joy of God travel across the highway of your heart.”

“A Piece of Wood” by Nehemiah 4:20 is available online worldwide beginning early summer 2013.

Irish rocker Saltwater Head releases new album ‘Springs’

The alternative rock artist known as Saltwater Head has released his debut LP record album, titled, “Springs.” The album is comprised of nine original tracks for an approximate total listening time of 30 minutes. Using only live takes in order to keep the genuine, raw feel of a three-piece rock band, “Springs” was recorded at Bluebird Studios in Straffan, Ireland over a span of three days. In addition to the singing, guitar work and songwriting artistry of Saltwater Head bandleader Sean Flaherty, “Springs” also includes the talents of Julien Douve on bass guitar, Craig Quentin Mc Cann on drums, and backing vocalist Laura Dowling. An alternative album with a classic rock heart and a punk-rock soul, “Springs” is pure music with nothing to obscure the excellent songwriting and straightforward performances of its instrumentalists.

The sound of “Springs” is often reminiscent of the clean-channel heyday of the early ’90s, when alternative bands not on the grunge bandwagon, such as Blind Melon and the Gin Blossoms, stood their ground against heavier acts like Soundgarden and Alice in Chains. “Springs” has a healthy dose of The Ramones too, however, and Saltwater Head singles like “Needs” come beautifully close to music by Dead Milkmen and the Undertones.

No better introduction to the work of Saltwater Head than “Springs” could be possible. Open, unabashed, and free from pretenses, it embodies the artistic principles of Flaherty and his instrumentalists. Having been asked to describe the message his record might have in store for listeners, Saltwater Head downplays any such motives.

“[These are] feel good, positive tunes presented in a direct, and sincere manner,” Flaherty writes. “Here’s a well-constructed song that will be concise and honest. Enjoy the music and have a smile.” Happy to deflect any complications that might confuse the matter, he breaks his musical goals down even further. “Basically –“ he says, “’Here’s some good songwriting, enjoy it and have a nice day / life. All the best for you.’”

“Springs” by Saltwater Head is available online worldwide beginning early summer of 2013.

Manuel De Peppe releases new single ‘You’

The Italian rocker known as Manuel De Peppe has released his latest single, “You,” to critical and fan acclaim in both Europe and the United States, as well as worldwide. The instant hit single has been released with an accompanying music video. “You” is a De Peppe original, having been written, arranged, and produced by the singer-songwriter, himself. It is his most capital and publicized music since the famous, sold-out Bee Hive reunion tour of Italy in 2011, and his recent duet with Italian songbird Clara Serina. A rocking return to the soaring guitars and vocals of the mid-1980s with a modern edge, “You” is a song no rock fan should be without.

The sound of Manuel De Peppe’s “You” is reminiscent of titans such as Jon Bon Jovi, Richard Marx, and the like, which will please De Peppe’s enormous crowd of fans at home and abroad. This is not surprising, since De Peppe himself names as main artistic influences bands like Toto, Chicago, Journey, Richard Marx, and Survivor. Though the glam-metal scene has had to share the spotlight with subgenres like grunge, punk and alternative in the past, these legendary artists have steadily grown in popularity and reputation since the ’80s, and De Peppe’s “You” is slated to take its place among them as a rock classic.

Speaking of his style of music, De Peppe writes, “I think the music business today needs some songs like there were in the 80’s. I started my career as an actor and singer in the 80’s, and that influence is in my blood. That’s why when I produce, write and arrange music, you can hear it in my works.” De Peppe isn’t all about reviving the traditional rock sound, though. He’s also an artist of the moment on the cutting edge. “I always love to combine the 80’s sound with the sounds from today!” he says.

The single and music video, “You,” by Manuel De Peppe is available online around the world beginning early summer of 2013.
