Oceanhoarse Debuts Album’s “Bonus” Track

Courtesy: Noble Demon

Oceanhoarse kicked off the weekend by debuting a “new” single and video.

The band premiered its single, ‘Fading Neons‘ Friday along with a companion lyric video. The song was recorded during the sessions for its new album, Dead Reckoning, which was released Aug. 20 through Noble Demon.

The band talked about the previously unreleased song in a prepared statement.

“Before the new album, we’ve wanted to release this gem from the archives that we recorded as a special bonus track during the ‘Dead Reckoning’ sessions,” the statement reads.”‘Fading Neons’ was one of the first songs we wrote when we started the band – and it’s also proven to be one of the most popular ones, thanks to the Wreckfest soundtrack! We have played it on our shows frequently and it’s always been a blast – so we figured we should record the new, heavier live arrangement that we have developed over the last few years and make this new version rock even harder than the old one!”

The musical arrangement featured in the song is a high-energy composition. The blend of the vocals that are half sung-half screamed conjure thoughts of those of Annihilator front man Jeff Waters. The instrumentation meanwhile is a solid modern rock presentation. The whole makes the song an easy fit for any modern/active rock radio programmer’s play list.

No information was provided about the song’s lyrical theme was provided in the press release announcing its premiere. The lyrics featured in the video leave room for plenty of interpretation, too.

The lyric video presents the song’s lyrics on either side of a creature in a hot rod that is holding a skull. The visualization makes for its own share of interest.

While ‘Fading Neons’ was not featured in Oceanhoarse’s new album, the record produced five singles: ‘Fields of Severed Dreams,’ ‘From Hell To Oblivion,’ ‘The Damage,’ ‘Reaching Skywards,’ and ‘One With The Gun.’

‘Volume I — Reborn’ Is Hopefully Just The First Of Many Volumes Of Music From Repentance

Courtesy: Noble Demon

Independent hard rock/metal outfit Repentance is scheduled to release its latest record Friday through Noble Demon.  The band’s new EP, Volume 1 Reborn, is a powerful return for the band, which boasts Shun Glass (Soil, Broken Hope, Dirge Within) among its members.  Also in the current lineup are Adam Gilley (vocals), Eric Burns (guitar), Eric Karol (bass), and Brandon White (drums).  Considering that Glass is the only original member of the group – the lineup previously consisted of Glass alongside Robby J. Fonts (Stuck Mojo), on vocals, as well as Mike Sylvester, Kanky Lora, and Markus Johansson – the EP’s title is fitting, especially considering the lineup changed so dramatically over the course of just one year.  While the band’s lineup changed quite a bit, the lineup’s influence on the music clearly has not changed, which is a very good thing.  From the EP’s opening to its end, the power in the record’s musical and lyrical content goes a long way to make it appealing.  Each item will be examined in its own right here.  The production that went into the presentation rounds out its most important elements wand will also be examined here.  Each item noted is important in its own way to the whole of the record.  All things considered, they make this second offering from Repentance a work that could make the band one of the next big names in the metal community, given the right support.

Repentance’s forthcoming new EP, Volume 1Reborn is a powerful new entry and solid follow-up to the band’s 2020 album, God For A Day.  As with that record, this presentation is one that could very easily help make the band one of the metal community’s next big names.  That is proven in part through the five-song record’s musical arrangements. The arrangements are intense, fiery, and so many other adjectives that one might add to that mix.  They are so powerful from one to the next, exhibiting influences from so many bands.  Comparisons can be made, for instance, to works from the likes of Hatebreed, Terror, and Dry Kill Logic at points throughout the 19-minute presentation.  At other points, audiences can just as much make comparisons to works from the likes of Unearth and Lamb of God.  While all of the noted bands are metal acts, their styles are distinct from one another.  That they are so well-balanced in each of the featured songs is a testament to the work put in by the band and to those responsible for the record’s production.  This item – the production — will be addressed later.  That the songs exhibit those influences and blend them so well is important also, because it will appeal so much to such a wide range of metal purists.  Keeping that in mind, the amalgam of influences exhibited in the songs and their stylistic similarity from one to the next is sure to keep listeners engaged and entertained.  Add in the fact that the songs still boast their own unique sounds separate of one another, even with the noted stylistic similarities in mind, and audiences get in each arrangement, five unique compositions that will appeal to the most casual of metal fans. 

Clearly, the musical content featured in Volume IReborn plays a pivotal role in the EP’s presentation.  They offer audiences plenty of familiar content while still also giving listeners something unique within the record and in comparison to other metal acts out there.  The lyrical themes that accompany the EP’s musical arrangements are just as important to its presentation as that musical content.  Case in point is the EP’s title track, which is also one of the record’s singles.  The song’s lyrical theme comes across as a fiery statement of determination, of letting go of the past and moving forward after cleansing one’s self of the stains of the past.  This is inferred from the lyrics provided in the song’s lyric video, which the band debuted in September.  On another note, ‘No Innocence,’ another of the record’s singles, is a song whose lyrical theme focuses on its own relatable, accessible theme.  Gilley, who currently handles vocals for the band, “‘No Innocence’ is about being betrayed by someone you thought you can trust.  When enough is enough and you just can’t hold back anymore.”  His statement is translated well through its chorus, in which he sings, “Self-righteous ignorance/Pull the blade from my back/No innocence/I’ll ruin you to the quick/A snap of the fingers/I’ll flip the switch.”  That is a powerful statement that also matches the fire in the song’s musical arrangement.  As if all of this is not enough proof of the importance of the EP’s lyrical content, the theme featured in the record’s opener, ‘All The Misery.’  If this critic is correctly interpreting the lyrics here, this is a familiar sociopolitical commentary that is so common among hard rock and metal acts.  That inference is made as Gilley screams in the song’s lead verse, “Open up/Start a new entry/They part us like the Red Sea/Submerge/Indoctrinating/I will not die on my knees/They pit us against each other/Divide/They will conquer/Put blame on one another/We must stand together/I will not/I will not cry/I will not/I will not die/We will/We will rise/Unite and let’s fight.”  These opening lines seem relatively cut and dry.  This comes across as one of those lyrical fists in the air, standing against the powers that be and how they intentionally work to divide Americans in order to continue controlling us.  That inferred message continues in the song’s second verse in which Gilley screams, “Let’s breath the cycle/From those who are cynical/Fade away/Fade them away/Misery/All the misery.”  This is a call to eliminate the misery, to overcome those who would bring us down.  Again, this seems to point the finger at those in the nation’s halls of power.  The same kind of message is added later in the song, too.  The whole makes the statement, again, familiar, but just as welcome as ever, considering where America is today.  Any cry for unity against those who would divide people solely for control is welcome.  To that end it is yet another example of the importance of the EP’s lyrical content.  It is yet another accessible, welcome theme that builds the EP’s success that much more.  When it is considered with the equally accessible and relatable themes in the other songs examined here and with the EP’s two remaining songs – ‘Down in the Water’ and ‘This Is Hell’ – the whole of the record’s lyrical content proves just as important as ever to its presentation as the EP’s musical arrangements.

It should be obvious at this point just how important the overall content featured in Volume IReborn is to the EP’s presentation.  For all that the content does to make the EP so engaging and entertaining, it is just part of what makes the EP successful.  The record’s production brings everything together and puts the finishing touch to the whole.  The production is so important to examine because, again, how fiery the content is overall.  Each arrangement is so loud and so intense.  That means that the utmost attention had to be paid to each arrangement in its instrumentation; making sure no one part overpowers the others.  In the same breath (no pun intended), just as much attention had to be paid to balancing the instrumentations with the vocals in each song.  Those painstaking efforts paid off in that aspect, too.  The result is that even with all of the screams against the intensity of the instrumentations, audiences can mostly understand and decipher the songs’ lyrics even without lyrics sheets to reference.  Keeping all of this in mind, the EP’s production is not just an aesthetic element.  It plays a key role in the EP’s general effect.  Keeping that in mind along with the positive impact of the EP’s content overall, the whole makes Volume IReborn hopefully just the first of many new volumes of music from Repentance.  It makes the record a work that, with the right support, could make Repentance once of the next big names in metal.

Repentance’s forthcoming EP, Volume IReborn is a strong new statement from the band.  It is a powerful statement about the band’s potential future, as is evidenced in part through its featured musical arrangements.  The arrangements boast so many influences while also boasting their own unique identities separate of the works from the bands that clearly influenced Repentance and from one another within the bigger picture of the EP.  That in itself is sure to appeal to any metal and hard rock purist.  The lyrical themes that accompany the record’s musical arrangements are important to the EP’s presentation because they are just as accessible as the record’s musical content.  They present themes that are familiar but still unique in their presentation without being too metaphorical in their language.  The record’s production puts the finishing touch to its presentation.  It ensures the songs’ instrumentations and vocals are all equally balanced.  The result of the work that went into this aspect is five songs whose general effect are all so powerful.  Each item examined here is important in its own way to the whole of the EP’s presentation.  All things considered, they make the EP another powerful work from Repentance that given the right support, could make this band one of the next big names in the metal and hard rock communities.

Volum I  — Reborn is scheduled for release Friday through Noble Demon.  More information on the record is available along with all of the band’s latest news at:

Oceanhoarse Debuts New Single’s Lyric Video

Courtesy: Noble Demon

Oceanhoarse premiered the lyric video for its latest single this week.

The band premiered the lyric video for its new single, ‘Fields of Severed Dreams’ Thursday. The song is the fifth single from the band’s debut album, Dead Reckoning, which was released in August through Noble Demon. The album has also produced the singles, ‘From Hell To Oblivion,’ ‘The Damage,’ ‘Reaching Skywards,’ and ‘One With The Gun.’

The musical arrangement featured in ‘Fields of Severed Dreams’ is for the most part, an emo-punk style composition as is evidenced through the song’s guitar line, vocals, and drums. Interestingly enough, the song takes an old school metal turn in the breakdowns. Those moments take audiences back to the days of big riffs and even bigger hair.

No information was provided about the song’s lyrical theme in the press release announcing the video’s premiere. Going through the song’s lyrics, the inference can be made that the song focuses on the powers that be working to hold people down and on the efforts to overcome those obstacles. This is just this critic’s interpretation and should not be taken as the only one thereof.

The lyric video features the song’s lyrics presented in a very sharp, edgy font. The font is presented over imagery of storm clouds and more random figures, perhaps to help translate the song’s message and the intense emotions connected to the message.

In other news, Oceanhoarse has announced a new slate of live European dates scheduled to launch Tuesday in Denmark. The tour is scheduled to run through Dec. 15 in Gdanks, Poland. The band’s tour and tickets are available here.

Repentance Debuts New EP’s Second Single, ‘No Innocence’

Courtesy: Noble Demon

Repentance opened the weekend with another preview of its new record.

The band debuted its new single, ‘No Innocence‘ Friday. The song is the second single from the band’s forthcoming EP, Volume 1Reborn, which is scheduled for release Nov. 26 through Noble Demon. The band premiered the record’s lead single, ‘Reborn’ and its companion lyric video Sept. 6.

Much as with ‘Reborn,’ the musical arrangement featured in ‘No Innocence’ is an intense composition that is pure on anger, fire, and frustration. The song’s instrumentation and intensity immediately lends itself to comparison to the best works of Dry Kill Logic, Unearth, and Hatebreed, just to name a few similar sounding acts.

According to front man Adam Gilley, the song’s lyrical theme matches the fire in the work’s musical arrangement.

“‘No Innocence’ is about being betrayed by someone you thought you can trust,” he said. “When enough is enough and you just can’t hold back anymore.”

The track listing for Volume 1Reborn is noted below.

Tracklist reads as follows:

01. All The Misery

02. Reborn (feat. Corey Beaulieu of TRIVIUM)

03. Down In The Water

04. No Innocence

05. This Is Hell

Trivium’s Corey Beaulieu Joins Repentance For Its Latest Single; Band Inks Deal With Noble Demon

Courtesy: O’Donnell Media Group

Hard rock super group Repentance unveiled its latest single and the song’s companion video Monday.

The group opened the new week with the premiere of its new single, ‘Reborn’ and its companion lyric video. The song is the first single from the band’s forthcoming EP, which is slated for release later this year through Noble Demon. Its premiere comes more than a year after the band — in its new lineup of Adam Gilley (vocals), Shaun Glass (guitar), Eric Burns (guitar), Eric Karol (bass), and Brandon White (drums) — premiered the band’s then latest single, ‘God For a Day,’ which was the title track from the band’s then latest album.

As with ‘God For a Day,’ the musical arrangement featured in ‘Reborn’ is a heavy, intense metalcore style composition. Though, the guest appearance of Trivium guitarist Corey Beaulieu adds a clear thrash metal influence to the arrangement, too. The whole makes this song even more intense just in terms of its musical arrangement.

No information was provided about the song’s lyrical theme in the press release announcing the premiere of the new song and its video. Reading the lyrics in the video, which are presented over images of fire as the song plays over it all, the song’s lyrical theme comes across as a…pardon the pun…fiery statement of determination, letting go of the past and moving forward after cleansing one’s self of the stains of the past. That is just this critic’s interpretation.

Going back to the note of the band’s new EP, the band recently inked a new record deal with Noble Demon. The label is also home to the likes of Oceanhoarse, Neonfly, and Red Moon Architect.

Glass spoke highly of Noble Demon as he talked about the band’s addition to the label’s roster.

“Repentance is thrilled to be with the mighty Noble Demon Records for our new releases!,” said Glass. “I was so impressed with how such a newer label was making waves and with such a diverse roster of Metal/Rock it was the obvious place for this to be our new home with a professional staff and Patrick’s amazing history in the Metal industry, it’s a breath of fresh air.”

Noble Demon founder Patrick Walch shared Glass’ positive vibes in his own comments.

“When I discovered Repentance last year listening to their first single and then the full length album ‘God for A Day’ I instantly knew I was onto something there,” he said.”After having spoken with Shaun Glass for a while we knew that the vibe was more than right between us so, it didn’t need much negotation in order to work together on their next songs.”

Added Walch, “I’m proud to welcome another member to the Noble Demon family, this time with a pure US metal sound which I’ve always been appreciating by bands like Trivium, Lamb Of God, Devildriver etc., all bands I grew up with as well. And having Corey of Trivium play the solo on this new single is a huge honor for all of us. Check out Repentance, you won’t be disappointed!”

Oceanhoarse Premieres ‘The Damage’ Lyric Video

Courtesy: Noble Demon

Oceanhoarse debuted the lyric video for its latest single this month.

The band premiered the lyric video for its song, ‘The Damage’ July 16. The song is the third single from the band’s forthcoming debut album, Dead Reckoning, which is scheduled for release Aug. 20 through Noble Demon. Pre-orders are open.

The debut of the band’s new lyric video comes more than two months after the band debuted the lyric video for the album’s then latest single, ‘Reaching Skyward.’ That song’s premiere was preceded by the debut of the album’s lead single, ‘One With The Gun.’ The song and its video premiered Feb. 26.

The band offered an explanation on the blistering new single’s musical arrangement in a prepared statement.

“The Damage’ is a heavy metal anthem that begins with a moody guitar intro followed by haunting vocals,” the statement reads. “Then, the song takes a sudden U-turn and drags you in the middle of a metal mayhem filled with some lightning fast drumming! The Alice in Chains style wailing vocal harmonies and the song’s epic closure with harmonized guitars ultimately leads us to the punchline: ‘The damage is done.’

No information was provided about the song’s lyrical theme in the news release distributed to the media. However, in listening to the song and watching the video, listeners can infer that the song’s lyrical theme deals with someone who is dealing with a lot of personal inner demons.

Speaking of the song’s video, it places the song’s lyrics over various backgrounds, such as images of a sea monster destroying a ship and the band members performing.

In other news, Oceanhoarse has announced a new series of live dates in support of its new album. The brief series of shows features performances in July, August, October, and December. The band’s live dates are noted below.

Upcoming Oceanhoarse shows:
27.10.2021 Telakka, Helsinki (w/ Bloodred Hourglass, MyGrain, Mors Subita)
26.12.2021 Hoarsefest 2021, On the Rocks, Helsinki (w/ Shereign, Thy Row)

Neonfly Tackles The Negative Side Of Social Media In New Single’s Lyric Video

Courtesy: Noble Demon

Neonfly is kicking off the weekend with a new single and lyric video.

The band premiered the lyric video for its new single, ‘Steal The World’ Friday. The song and its video are the third from the band’s newly released album, The Future, Tonight. The premiere follows that of the album’s first two singles, ‘Beating Hearts‘ and the album’s title track.

The musical arrangement featured in ‘Steal The World’ is perhaps the most radio ready of the album’s singles. That is evidenced in the combination of the band’s familiar prog-metal approach and sound and the heavier, more mainstream sound in the screams. Those screams are featured in the song’s chorus.

The lyrical content featured alongside the song’s musical arrangement is a social commentary about the negative side of social media, according to front man Willy Norton.

The song is about the way everyone nowadays -from celebrities to your next door neighbour- can go online to express all sorts of false ideas, beliefs, lies, conspiracy theories, either on purpose to exploit people, or simply out of sheer ignorance,” he said. “The lyrics are written from the perspective of a very cynical individual who deliberately preaches online falsehoods to wreak havoc in general, exploit the vulnerable and cause serious harm in the real world.”

The Future, Tonight is available now through Noble Demon. More information on the album is available along with all of the band’s latest news at:

Oceanhoarse Debuts New Single, ‘Reaching Skywards,’ Companion Video

Courtesy: Noble Demon

Independent hard rock band Oceanhoarse debuted the video for its latest single this week.

The band debuted the lyric video or its new single, ‘Reaching Skywards’ Friday. The single and its video are the second from Oceanhoarse’s forthcoming debut album, Dead Reckoning, which is scheduled for release Aug. 20 through Noble Demon. The band premiered the album’s lead single, ‘One With The Gun‘ and its video Feb. 26.

Drummer Oskari Niemi offered the following about the single’s musical arrangement.

“‘Reaching Skywards’ is my favorite track from our upcoming album” he said. “It kicks off with some eardrum-slapping metal before the verse brings a dose of funk to your afternoon, and finally the chorus lifts you up into the skies. This has to be the most twisted combination of grooves so far in our catalog! I rarely get emotional, but Joonas’ (Kosonen, vocals) screams in the second half of the song always give me chills.”

As to the song’s lyrical theme, Niemi’s band mate, guitarist Ben Varon offered the following comments.

“It’s a never-ending source of amazement to me how some people have no issues exploiting others and watch the world burn around them while they keep getting wealthier and more powerful,” he said. “There’s nothing scarier than inhumanity and lack of compassion. I find myself leaning towards these topics time and again when writing lyrics”

The video itself places the song’s lyrics over a blue background that is seemingly meant to look like a television monitor.

In other news, Oceanhoarse has announced a new series of live dates in support of its new album. The brief series of shows features performances in July, August, October, and December. The band’s live dates are noted below.

Upcoming Oceanhoarse shows:
16.–17.07.2021 –Turku Rockpark, Turku
13.–14.08.2021 –North of Hell, Oulu
27.10.2021 Telakka, Helsinki (w/ Bloodred Hourglass, MyGrain, Mors Subita)

Neonfly Debuts ‘Beating Hearts’ Lyric Video

Courtesy: Noble Demon

Neonfly premiered the lyric video for its latest single this week.

The band premiere the lyric video for its new single, ‘Beating Hearts’ Friday. The video places the song’s lyrics over footage of Korean artist Noh Gyeong Hwan (a.k.a. NOMA) as he paints the cover art for the band’s new album, The Future Tonight, which features the new single and its predecessor, the album’s title track. The Future, Tonight is scheduled for release June 18 through Noble Demon.

The album’s track listing is noted below.

TRACKLIST

  1. This World is Burning
  2. Last of Our Kind
  3. Flesh and Blood
  4. The Future, Tonight (ft.Bjord Strid)
  5. Beating Hearts
  6. More Than a Lifetime
  7. Another Eden (ft. Kaan Tasan)
  8. Steal the World (ft. Kaan Tasan)
  9. Final Warning
  10. The Things We Left Behind (And The Things That Slipped Away)

Pre-orders and pre-saves for The Future, Tonight are open now.

The musical arrangement featured in ‘Beating Hearts’ is a steady, mid-tempo composition. Its sound and stylistic approach blends a modern rock and 80s hair metal influence. The addition of the gospel chorus element adds its own unique touch to the song.

The lyrical theme that accompanies the song’s musical arrangement presents a positive message according to guitarist Frederik Thunder.

“It’s a song about not being afraid of being yourself, and not having to justify yourself for being different” Thunder said. “It’s a song about following your heart and accepting your choices, regardless of what certain religious groups, social conventions or other people might dictate. It’s a song about passion that celebrates alternative culture in all its manifestations: music, art, lifestyle, community… and it’s a song about overcoming any personal doubts you might have, and finding harmony within yourself.”
