J.S. Tolar releases new alt-prog album ‘Dark Eternal Future’

The alternative prog-rock artist known as J.S. Tolar has released his latest official full-length album, “Dark Eternal Future.” The LP contains 13 original J.S. Tolar tracks for an approximate total listening time of over an hour. It has been proudly published as an independent release without the involvement of the corporate music industry on the Project M.E.L. record label. Evocative, carefully written, and charged with surgically precise studio production, “Dark Eternal Future” brings J.S. Tolar in a darkly pleasant package fans of any rock genre can get behind.

Virginia’s J.S. Tolar cites as main artistic influences Porcupine Tree, Steven Wilson, Katatonia, TesseracT, The Pineapple Thief, and Anathema. Fans of groups like Tool, Opeth, Blackfield, Dream Theater or even King Crimson are sure to find plenty to enjoy in “Dark Eternal Future.”

An almost entirely narrative record, “Dark Eternal Future” tells its story with clarity and cohesion. Concept albums often get sneers from pop fans, but J.S. Tolar’s new record manages to be approachable by casual listeners and audiophiles alike.

Asked to describe the meanings of “Dark Eternal Future,” Tolar writes, “It shares the story of The Visionary and his discovery of everlasting life and his brutal act of forcing it onto others. It shares different points of view from those affected and the crumbling world before them.”

J.S. Tolar’s current official bio describes him as “a solo artist who meanders between the rock and metal genres … featuring lashings of progressive influence.” It also mentions his penchant for drawing from “other dark multimedia projects, with the psychological horror video game, ‘Silent Hill,’ also playing a pivotal role in how he injects anxiety-inducing atmosphere into his projects.” His music has elsewhere been called a “canvas for the dark, cerebral energy that lays dormant within his mind until it is transcribed to notes and melodies.”

The man, himself, has said music is his “solace” and “guide for finding a way out of hard life events.”

I’ve always found that music has a profound ability to offer perspective and hope to an otherwise dreary situation,” Tolar says of this.

J.S. Tolar also works in a project fronted by Tess Savigear called Visions of Nell who have a release expected sometime in 2020.

Dark Eternal Future” by J.S. Tolar on the Project M.E.L. label is available online worldwide now. Get in early, alt-prog fans.

The hip-hop, new-age, RnB and pop music crew known as Vibee Musik have released their latest official album, “Catch A Vibee.” The album contains seven original Vibee Musik tracks for an approximate total listening time of 25 minutes. It has been proudly published as an independent release without the involvement of the corporate music industry on the Ark Music Entertainment record label. Sonorous, melodic, and packaged with everything that makes pop music go pop, “Catch A Vibee” proves that Vibee Musik has much more than mere potential.

Speaking of their start in music, Vibee write: “Our parents managed our older brothers’ R&B group. We mentioned to our brothers that we could sing and wanted to do music, too.

The Vibee Musik boys originally come from Atlanta, GA, but have put down deep roots in Bristol, TN.

They love Bristol,” says their label, Ark Music Ent. “They’re very passionate about giving back to

their community. They are involved with several non- profit organizations, and have even written a hit song about Bristol. As young boys growing up amongst 15 other family members in Bowen homes in Atlanta, music was always their go-to for release when times were hard.”

Having the opportunity to be amongst artists like Shawty Lo, Dem Franchize Boyz, Shop Boyz, and TI before our own fame played a major part in our lives,” write Vibee Musik. “It helped us realize that with hard work, anything is possible! This is what makes us who we are today.”
