VICINITY

 

About

Vicinity is the musical melting pot of band members Alexander K. Lykke (vocals), Kim-Marius H. Olsen (guitars), Pierre-Nicolai H. Schmidt-Melbye (bass), Ivar A. Nyland (keyboards) and Frode Lillevold (drums). The band draws inspiration from classic- or modern prog, rock, pop, classical music, heavy metal or the more extreme metal genres.

Vicinity is following up on the critically acclaimed album Awakening from 2013. The debut album made it to “best newcomer” lists by several webcines and Norwegian national radio (NRK P3).

The new creation, Recurrence, is a concept album that debates the cyclic nature of humanity, both as a whole and at more personal levels, while highlighting both the technical- and melodic aspects familiar to the progressive metal genre.

With Recurrence the band set out to make an album that would be more than just the sum of its tracks, and envisioned an album where the songs would float into each other, and at the very end of the album connecting with the beginning of the first song, making an ”infinite” musical piece, thus mirroring the lyrics.
As before the band wanted to challenge themselves technically, aiming to do better than the last time, but always keeping the songs and the album as a whole in focus. The result is an album comprising six tracks, varying in length from 5 to 22 minutes per track, in the tradition of bands like Circus Maximus, Pagan’s Mind, Threshold, Arena, Haken, and early Dream Theater.

WE COULD BUILD AN EMPIRE

 

About

In december Swedish alternative/progressive hard rock trio We Could Build An Empire are back with the follow-up to their 2011 eponymous debut. On the new album called ”In This Place” the band have worked with the reputed Jens Bogren at Fashination Street Studios (Opeth, Katatonia, Witchcraft) and legendary producer Zed Smon. Zed most famously worked with the biggest poprock band inside Sweden, Kent on their major breakthrough albums during 1997-2002.

The aim for the new album was to make every track stand out as a great song on it’s own, carefully produced and mixed to match the vibe and the lyrics of each one. This is why it took some extra time to finish the album, patiently waiting until very busy producer Jens Bogren had time to mix the final three songs.

Looking back at the debut Classic Rock Magazine’s PROG issue wrote:

“Opener “Finest Work” has a muscular metallic tinge that nods to Alice In Chains, while there’s a touch of Peter Gabriel in “Easy”. A charm all it’s own.”

Even though the debut was a non-budet self-release it did get some attention in the US as well:

“We Could build An Empire is a fine modern melodic rock release which perfectly fuses elements from alternative rock and progressive rock into a collection of completely saturated and compelling tunes. Fans of the likes of Mew, Soundgarden, Muse, and Coldplay might find it further interesting, since We Could Build An Empire presents yet another way of combining alternative rock and progressive rock.”

Seaoftranquility.org, US

Bassist/vocalist Marcus Pehrsson share his thoughts on the new album:

– I guess we have to a great extent stuck with our influences and that’s still a little bit of everything we like really, all the great music we love from Tool, Soundgarden and Radiohead to AC/DC, PJ Harvey and King Crimson. Music to me should be without boundaries. Just let it flow, any path it takes really, that’s what our music is about. We like it diverse, like an old Led Zep or Beatles-album in that sense, whatever happened to that idea?

First single ”All In This Together” was released in the spring of 2016 and since then the band also put out an temporarily EP with the first four songs that Zed had mixed. Once all the eight songs was done the band signed up with Mighty Music and the EP was withdrawn for the benefit of the full-lenght album.

WINTERGARDEN

About

Wintergarden was initially created by singer/songwriter Miriam Gardner while co-writing and file sharing on the internet with friends from all over the globe.

Miriam quickly involved her guitarist and producer husband Blake Gardner once some promising material began to emerge. The two started consolidating the material into the Wintergarden sound in their own studio which is based in Denmark.

Although the writing part of the project began in Febuary 2011, the band was officially launched in August 2011 with the release of the ‘Steampunk Deluxe’ Ep on their own label Vocal Station.

In support of the Ep, Wintergarden took out the live line up for a handful of shows within Denmark to a great response before returning back into the studio to continue working on new material. Once back in the studio the duo continued collaborating via file sharing but this time worked exclusively with a good friend from Los Angeles, Darren Davis with their sights set on a debut album. During this process a lot of material was collected and produced but was in need of futher development so the single, ‘Sacrifice’ was chosen and released in October 2011, again on Vocal Station.

The single began opening doors to US radio stations who began adding it to their playlists and a rapid internet fan base began to grow also resulting in airplay of the song, ‘No Longer Invited’ from the ‘Steampunk Deluxe’ Ep.

With a great response from the ‘Sacrifice’ single Wintergarden pushed on with the album and added an additional collaboration with Sevendust guitarist, Clint Lowery who Miriam and Blake had met after a show in Copenhagen back in June 2009. Clint loved the Ep and Single and had some great idears which after some swapping back and forth became, the songs ‘Breathe’ and ‘Can You Wait’.

As the album was taking longer than anticipated the song ‘Breathe’ was chosen to be released as a single. At this time Blake had been in contact with Kevin and Kane Churko, Juno award winners (Ozzy / Five Finger Death Punch / In This Moment) from Las Vegas studio The Hideout, in regard to getting an alternative mix. Kane although busy was quite interested in doing a mix for Wintergarden, and fit the band in straight away. This mix of the song ‘Breathe’ was then released as a single in December 2013 on Vocal Station.

The song ‘Breathe’ is currently enjoying radio rotation and has kept the fan base flame alive while the debut album, ‘The New Victorian’ has been completed and are out now.

WORRY BLAST

About

If ACDC was an old family recipe, this young band from Switzerland is what you would be eating at Grandma’s house.

Worry Blast is the name of this powerful quartet that released their first album ”Break Out From Hell”, in 2013. An album that made Lycra wearing 80’s glam bands run for their lives. Worry Blast have quickly made a name for themselves on the live scene with their furious and hard rockin’ live shows.

After supporting Jeff Scott Soto and his band in several countrie during their European tour in 2014 and opening for Scorpions, Gotthard and Johnny Hallyday in 2015, the band is ready to release its second album “Hit The Gas“.

They decided to produce it with Dennis Ward, producer for Krokus, Gotthard, Khymera, because the time arrived for the band to get this American touch on their recordings.

“Hit the gas“ is a big return to the best 80’s moments with basic riffs and furious solos. Including a featured track with Tommy Henriksen from Alice Cooper, the entire band is looking forward to releasing it worldwide, showing to everyone all they can do!

‘Hit The Gas’ will be released worldwide January 22th 2016
