A Horrible Death To A Horrible Man

 

About

A Horrible Death To A Horrible Man is a new sinister noise rock quartet that mixes noisy and heavy riffs, along with a personal text universe delivered with a mesmerizing vocals.

The band consists of four old friends, assembled by the ashes of defunct, Copenhagen underground bands, with a desire to take their respective musical ambitions and put them together in a band and in a genre that until now have been under-represented in the Danish music environment – namely heavy and uncompromising noise rock.

The motivation was a desire to write heavy and dark songs, a mood that everyone in the band could relate to. They worked hard in rehearsal, writing songs meant to draw people into their universe and get their chances challenged.

The band managed to get Tore Nissen (Oh Land) and Manoj Ramdas (The Raveonettes, Black Sun, The Good The Bad, SPEKTR) as producers, who both was immediately sucked into the bands gloomy universe.

This cooperation led the music out in some experimental corners, but without departing from the goal as the band had set itself from the outset. The atmosphere is dark and gloomy, the music is heavy ” and the lyrical universe is very personal, based on own life events. A genre the band themselves have labeled as Post-Traumatic Rock.

Mini-album “Escape Escape” is released March 23, 2015 via Target / Mighty Music and this underlines the bands ambitions to prove that Denmark can be much more than fine-polished pop.

The first single “A Sudden Violent Displeasure” was released in early December, via a music video written and directed by artist duo SIGNA, who was the artists behind the controversial shock-play VILLA Salo in 2010. This is their first music video for a song chosen by SIGNA itself

“Escape Escape” will be released on March 30th 2015 via Mighty Music.

ABDUNOR

About

ABDUNOR was formed in 1997(!) by the two masterminds Horror and Inferior, and they are now back with their innovative, dark and atmospheric metal music!

ABDUNOR released an EP entitled “Whispers in Nameless Forms” which was published in 1998. After a long hiatus ABDUNOR has begun to stir again and this time it’s serious. Horror explains:

“There were several factors in play to why we didn’t went further with the ABDUNOR project after the EP. We had a seriously shitty management, other music projects stood in the way and we didn’t had the time that we have today… That is the reason why this album has first found its way now. The album is just the beginning for the band and the material will only get darker, harder and more epic. Actually the material for the next album is already ready for recording, so there’s certainly nothing wrong with our creativity.”

The recordings of “Apocryphal” is done in ABDUNOR’s own studio with Inferior on vocals, guitar, bass and keys and Horror on drums, percussions and backing vocals. Mix and master have been placed in the capable hands of Studio Fredman (Opeth, Dimmu Borgir. Arch Enemy etc.). Sonically ABDUNOR is much more than a simple black metal band. One of the ultimate goals for ABDUNOR has always been to create something unique. They deliver music that encompasses a truly special atmosphere (in both music and lyrics) put together by fast and slow, technical and melodic parts.

“Apocryphal “ is only a taste of what can be expected in the future by the band. A “must listen to” if you are into dark sounds and death/black metal!

Absolution

About

Absolution hail from the wilds of East Anglia in southern England. Not the most obvious place you would expect to generate 21st Century contemporary Blues Rock, but it is here that the band crafted their exciting and unique new record; Blues Power, the follow up to 2014’s critically acclaimed Dusty Road. Seeing as the band only formed in 2010 to perform a 40 minute support slot, the fact that they are now, six years on, releasing their third and best record and are about to embark on a run of European tour dates in the Autumn, it’s safe to say that things have gone from strength to strength!

Absolution is a band that tries to tread a new path in the Blues Rock genre. Whilst trying to remain true to the styles and sounds that people love, they make it their goal to create music that is new, fresh, intense and exciting. They have never released an album with a cover song on, preferring instead to release all new music only, which is unusual for the Blues genre. Whilst power trio comparisons will invariably be made with acts such as Cream, for a Blues Rock act, the influences cited by the band are much more varied. They draw from people as expected like Hendrix, Free and The Beatles but also right through to artists such as Soundgarden, Oasis and even Jazz and Country musicians such as Vince Gill amongst others. This melting pot of influences and styles helps create a record that sounds both like a traditional classic Blues Rock album but at the same time brings something new, unique and dynamic to the table!

Each record, from 2012’s raw and intense debut Issues through Dusty Road up to Blues Power, the band have recorded at OneCat Studios in Brixton, London with Engineer/Producer Jon Clayton. The production and sound on the new record has been stepped up to a new level and the album has been mastered by Pete Maher (U2, The Rolling Stones, Paul Weller) helping create a sonic experience that defies the listener to skip any of the 12 original tracks!

The album was written and recorded by Joe Fawcett and Doug Lang. Joe Fawcett (Guitars, Bass & Vocals) with his stunning guitar, incendiary solos and unique contemporary vocals. Doug Lang (Drums & Percussion) is an inimitable drummer. From a jazz background, this is really what underpins the Absolution sound and gives the songs the originality and size that help them pack the punch that they do. They are joined on stage by Andy Palmer (Bass) who, with his years of playing experience, stage presence and stunning playing, completes the touring line up. The three musicians form an onstage alliance that is as exciting as it is musically satisfying! People never leave a show disappointed!

The band is known for high-energy live shows as well as quality original songwriting! They are making people sit up and take notice across the globe. UK magazine Guitar & Bass said of Dusty Road “(It) is a riff-tastic mother of a record that guarantees Rocking joy!” While Blues Rock Review said of the band “Blues Flawlessness. These guys are exceptional musicians!”

With the release of Blues Power, Absolution has created a record that carries the expectation to put them into orbit and catapult them to the next level! Make sure you catch the new record and don’t miss the chance to see the full live experience from the front row! Perhaps we should leave the last word of advice to About Blues (USA) “Jump on the bandwagon before it reaches warp speed!”

ABO

About

ABO – One of Denmarks very best rockguitarists presents his ‘Bucket List’

Through the last 10 years, Anders Bo has been one of the most used session-guitarists by the most selling rock- and pop-artists in Denmark. He has traveled the world as musical ‘hired-gun’ for artists like Marco Mendoza (ex-Whitesnake, ex-Thin Lizzy), and now the time is right for ABO to release his first solo-album.

‘Bucket List’ is a very personal album and represents all that Anders stands for musically. All songs have been written with no intention to please or follow trends, norms or fashions on the music scene. “I wanted to do it for myself, and even though I am a guitarist, I wanted to play all the instruments myself. My passion for American-inspired guitar hero-rock is the very backbone in all the tracks. It was important for me to use and show all the musical styles I love, from melodic pop to hard rock” – Anders Bo

The album has been made together with Anders Bo’s longtime partner in crime, Soren Andersen (Glen Hughes, Electric Guitars, Mike Tramp, D-A-D) in the legendary Copenhagen-based Medley Studios (Radiohead, Prince, Kelly Clarkson, Roxette) and the vocals on the album has been contributed by Rebecca Lou (Stella Blackrose), Thomas Karlsen (Karma Cowboys), Celina Ree og Jenny Sjöwal. ‘Bucket List’ has been made out from three dogmas:
– 10 songs recorded in 10 days.
– All instruments played by Anders Bo.
– All songs had to be co-written by the singer on the track.

“My name is Anders Bo – I am known by the name ABO, and this is my musical ‘Bucket List'”

AGAZE

About

Swedens new dark hardrockers AGAZE unleashes their long awaited debut ‘Bullshit Drama Social Media’!

Back in 2010, AGAZE started just like so many others, as a dream and a will to do something unique to fill up the empty hole in your life. During an intense first year three demo singles were recorded and accompanied by three music videos. These were released separately throughout the year. After a few line-up changes, things began to speed up for the band, when Zeb planned a charity event to benefit the fight for cancer, resulting in the event “Killing The Disease” where AGAZE headlined.

The gig worked as a ‘new beginning’ and the three demo singles with the song ‘Adrenaline’ made way for new conquests. The band was aired on P3 (Swedish National radio), participated on a compilation cd by Sweden’s magazine Close-Up, featured as official soundtrack on stunt videos for the extreme sport brand “Pimpstar”, not once but twice!

Agaze entered the Top Floor Studios in Gothenburg, with producer Jakob Herrmann (Machine Head, Raised Fist, Hardcore Superstar), to record the album ‘Bullshit Drama Social Media’. The album was mastered by Tony Lindgren (Opeth, Soilwork and Amon Amarth).

The band has already been seen on stage with acts like The Resistance, Bullet, Supercharger and the All-star band Death Dealer with members from Manowar, The Dictators, Lizzy Borden and Halford.

‘Bullshit Drama Social Media’ will be released worldwide by Mighty Music on the 25th of March 2016.

For fans of Avenged Sevenfold, Rob Zombie and Hardcore Superstar.

ALOOP

About

Aloop is a band unwilling to compromise when it comes to the creation of their music. In developing their explosive and pulverizing sound, Aloop creates music charged with pure energy and raw emotion. The Northern quintet joined forces in 2000 and was formed by musicians from different parts of the Danish metal environment. Thus, including elements from death-, heavy- and classical metal, Aloop combines the heaviness of e.g. early Sepultura with ass kicking southern thrash elements similar to those of Pantera and Slayer. The sound of Aloop has been labelled as a redefinition of old-school head-banging metal. Even though the quintet’s sound is highly inspired by old-school metal, Aloop has managed to create a unique sound charged with melody and mind-shaking brutality hitting the listener hard in the face.

ARMORTURA

About

Armortura are a melodic thrash metal band based in North East England and although the music is loosely based on old school thrash, there are lots of modern and melodic influences that can be heard from the tight, harmonised guitars coupled with pounding bass lines and powerful vocals.

Armortura was formed in April 2016 by ex-HOLOSADE members Phil De Sade (vocals) and Paul Trotter (guitarist), who, after a chance meeting at a Rock Night back in March 2016, decided to catapult their creative musical ideas and shared passion for hard hitting metal music into a new venture, following their dreams of spreading this unique blend of metal music as far and wide as possible.

Early 2017 saw the full band formulation of Adam Ironside on guitar Neil Vickers on drums (also ex-HOLOSADE) and Steve Smart on bass to make the talented five-piece metal machine you see today!

The writing of the ten track album came into full flow throughout 2016 and early 2017, when many an hour was spent in Paul’s home studio recording demo tracks that would be built upon before launching into the professional studio. Final recording, mixing and mastering of the self-financed album began in July 2016 with Producer James Stephenson at Stymphalian Productions in York, UK. The album took one year to complete from start to final mix.

In April 2017, Armortura submitted a four track demo to Mighty Music which was well received and Mighty Music requested to hear the full album. The label were delighted with the full album and in July 2017, Armortura signed to Denmark’s biggest metal label, Mighty Music, who will be releasing the killer self-entitled debut album worldwide in December 2017.

Annominus

About

With a raw, and yet clean vocal and a mixture of heavy dissonant riffs and big melodies, Annominus distinguishes itself in many ways from the rest.

There is no focus on playing as quickly as possible. The absolute focus is to make the individual songs as good as possible.

With inspirations ranging from Gojira and Mastodon to Depeche Mode, different angels of music is important for this band. Add to all this a great DIY attitude, and you are approaching what Annominus is all about

With their new album “The Architect” released on Mighty Music 1st of June, Annominus has made an ambitious conceptual album about how we, as humans, can become discouraged by the world we live in, as well as how we can get up from the ashes again – or let ourselves be destroyed by ourselves.
It brings a critical view of the institutionalization of us as humans and a more poetic approach to the “us against the world” concept.

The records was written under intimate conditions, with only the band involved. It was recorded in collaboration with Anders Vohs (When Water Runs Deep) – a close friend of the band. This was done to maintain the intimate atmosphere on the record.

Annominus brings a great amount of experience from the stage. They have supported major bands like Amorphis and the American giants Black Label Society as well as a headliner tour through Russia in 2015.

Annominus brings a working class thinking on stage. No place is to small or too big!
