Johnathan|Christian releases new single ‘Hurt’ feat. Thomas Gabriel

The songwriter and producer of modern goth and darkwave known as Johnathan|Christian has released their latest official single, “Hurt.”

Johnathan|Christian’s “Hurt” also features the talents of Thomas Gabriel, Clause Larsen (Leæther Strip) and multi-media artist Victor Devilbliss AKA Michael Bann (Advent Sleep).

The single has been released concurrently with the “Leæther Strip” and “Michael Bann” remixes for an approximate total listening time of 13 minutes. It has been proudly published as an independent release without the involvement of the corporate music industry. Sonorous, melancholy, and entirely heartfelt, “Hurt” showcases Johnathan|Christian as one of the most intriguing modern goth and darkwave artists of the year so far and promises that they has plenty more where that came from.

Darkwave and death rock’s Johnathan|Christian cites as main artistic influences Depeche Mode, Joy Division Siouxsie & The Banshees, The Mission, Muse, Radiohead, Christian Death, Killing Joke, Skinny Puppy, and Leæther Strip. Johnathan|Christian’s own sound takes elements from each of these and adds something fresh and unique for a result unlike anything today’s music fans have heard before. With an emphasis on passion, vocal delivery and instrumentation, “Hurt” by Johnathan|Christian has a little something for everybody.

Asked to describe the overall meaning of “Hurt,” Johnathan|Christian writes: “While Johnathan|Christian were working on their latest album, Henry Vaccaro Jr. reached out to propose a collaboration with a family member of a very special musical clan.

My father was a close friend of Johnny Cash, whom he had met through his role with the Kramer Guitar Company which grew to become the largest American Manufacturer of electric guitars in the 1980s. My dad was a huge Johnny Cash fan and brought the entire band guitars in 1976 and our families have been friends ever since. I first met his oldest grandson, Thomas [Gabriel] when we were children, and now watching him break out on his own, I was blown away by his uncanny vocal resemblance to his grandfather. His phrasing, tone, spirit, drive and humility are all these remarkable traits passed down from the Man in Black. I was already a fan of Johnathan|Christian and when I first heard Thomas covering ‘Hurt’ I thought between both parties, they would not only pay homage to Thomas’ grandfather but also to the original Trent Reznor version.”

Their current official bio relates: “For Johnathan|Christian members Johnathan Mooney and Tiger Koehn, coming up with something that would remotely do any kind of justice to both originals was a daunting task.

‘Trent Reznor’s “Hurt” was such an emotional song that told a very dark tale,’ says Mooney, ‘and then you have Johnny Cash’s version and that was like a huge kick in the stomach that just left you speechless in it’s rawness.’

For this to work, it was important for Johnathan|Christian to tell the story in a different musical light.

‘While Johnny Cash sings about all that’s left, I felt that grandson Thomas, whom while also had his own share of demons, is now on the beginning of a journey.’ Says Mooney. ‘An “Empire of dirt” is not only what we end with, but it’s also all we start with.’”

Johnathan|Christian’s previous releases such as 2013’s “Beautiful Hideous” have garnered more than 2.5 million streams.

Hurt” by Johnathan|Christian on the LABEL label is available from over 600 quality digital music stores online worldwide now. Get in early, modern goth and darkwave fans.

Septimus Augustus releases nu-metal single ‘Nail Through My Skull’

The songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist of nu-metal known as Septimus Augustus has released his latest official single, “Nail Through My Skull.” It has been proudly published as an independent release without the involvement of the corporate music industry on the American Values record label. Raw, pared-down metal laced with thrash elements, “Nail Through My Skull” showcases Septimus Augustus as one of the most intriguing nu-metal artists of the year so far and promises that he has plenty more where that came from.

Panamá’s Septimus Augustus cites as main artistic influences James Brown, AC/DC, soul and funk groups from the ’70s, salsa, reggae, and blues. The artist notes, “It’s all a melting pot.”

This melting pot is perhaps nowhere as apparent as it is in his surprising inclusion of hip hop in “Nail Through My Skull.” Septimus Augustus writes of it, “That’s a very important element to the metal music that I make. I incorporate hip hop as a main way of driving the point of the song home.”

Septimus Augustus’s own sound takes elements from each of these and adds something fresh and unique for a result unlike anything today’s music fans have heard before. With an emphasis on attitude, grinding tones and open aggression, “Nail Through My Skull” by Septimus Augustus has a little something for everybody.

Commenting on the overall meaning of “Nail Through My Skull,” Septimus Augustus says, “’Nail Through My Skull’ is a song about dealing with the frustrations and struggles of life and being resilient even in the worst of situations. As the line says, ‘I’m not dead.’ So as long as one has life, one should have hope.”

Asked to describe his start in music, Septimus Augustus notes that he has been writing original music since the age of 11. Originally inspired by seeing James Brown live, Septimus Augustus later moved from Panamá to New York City where he started his first metal group. His current official bio says of this:

After listening non-stop and getting his hands on anything AC/DC had released, he felt that he had finally found the music that could express all the angst, anger, longing, struggles, corruption, poverty, and frustration he saw and wanted to incorporate in the socio-political lyrics he was writing.”

The band he formed SEPTIMUS got rave reviews from the village voice and metal forces magazine and was considered one of the loudest bands in New York City at the time.

The American Values independent record label writes:

“Septimus Augustus music is released on American Values, his own independent record label and parent company to American Values Latin that releases SEPTIMUS’ other musical project

Sin Leche. All this is done without the direction or financial support of the corporate music industry, making it his most significant release on several levels.”

Nail Through My Skull” by Septimus Augustus on the American Values label is available from over 600 quality digital music stores online worldwide now. Get in early, nu-metal fans.
