The Story of Tarah Who?
Tarah Who? is an independent band founded by Tarah G. Carpenter. She set off to
document her experience of the genesis of the band, how she met her band mates Coralie Hervé (drums) and Joey Southern (bass), and the ways in which she navigates life as a committed musician. Thepilot of this docu-series introduces you to Tarah’s view of the independent music industry and the
subsequent episodes will delve deeper into the use of social media, women in music around the world, as well as interviews with other artists and bands.
Her aim is to show a different perspective, on subjects such as exposing pay to play shows and the challenges of festivals, as examples of the idiosyncrasies in the industry.
You will be taken behind the scenes of every aspect of what being in a band really is. From writing the first notes of a song to the recording and final process, promoting, and performing. Follow the band on tour, on the road. This is an authentic and raw documentary about a woman fronted power trio from Los Angeles.
Tarah described the situation, "I started playing music when I was 14 and I wanted to play the drums. But I remember having to deal with a share amount of sexism, because "girls don't play drums" we were told. I had teachers who did not take me seriously, and made me feel uncomfortable. I started teaching myself, because I was tired of having to prove how strongly I felt about learning how to play the drums or the bass to get approval."
“A few years went by, and I started having the urge to write, express myself. I taught myself how to play the guitar and wrote a few songs. In 2006, I moved to Los Angeles to pursue my music dreams.
Most people listen to bands without really knowing or understanding what it is to be a musician and what the process of making music is. It’s an enormous endeavor, from writing songs, to finding the right people to make your project come to life - you are the CEO of your own business.”

COMATOSE MUSIC RECRUIT GOREVENT TO THEIR DIVISIONS OF DEATH
We are pleased to announce that our partners at Comatose Music have added the undisputed kings of Japanese brutal, slamming death metal to their ever more powerful ranks. Please join us in welcoming Gorevent to the Comatose army!
Gorevent have been exploring the realms of the extreme for fifteen years now and have released albums that stand as blood splattered monoliths in the shadowy underworld of brutal death metal. Their debut full length album, released in 2008, Abnormal Exaggeration, has been hailed by Teeth Of The Divine as one of the greatest examples of brutality even recorded, noting in their review...
"... you cannot do death metal any better then the complete slamming, guttural putridity found on Abnormal Exaggeration..."
Gorevent's career to date has taken in demos, EPs, split releases with the likes of Embryonic Depravity, Stillbirth, Crepitation and Splattered and no less than four full length albums, culminating in last year's flesh rending In The Face Of..., - which That's How Kids Die called 'one of their finest releases to date', revelling in the ' bone-crushing heaviness' and 'superior slam-craft'.
But for all that has gone before, this is where the Gorevent story really starts. With the Comatose Music machine at their backs, Gorevent's rise through the worldwide ranks of the depraved and deranged is surely assured. Be prepared for spine shattering slams, stomach churning brutality and death metal simply too heavy to resist... Gorevent are coming for you all with an early 2020 release!

PYTHIA - THE SOLACE OF ANCIENT EARTH
The world we have created for ourselves can be a cold and empty place; its endless shades of grey bleaching the colour from our dreams and its grinding monotony imprisoning our souls. We have never needed those who can break our chains and show us the way to other worlds more, torchbearers whose imaginations burn brightly in the darkness. Pythia are storytellers, dreamweavers and cage breakers and having triumphed at the recent Hammerfest XI festival with Overkill and Flotsam And Jetsam, they are ready to unveil their long awaited fourth album, The Solace Of Ancient Earth.
Since their 2009 debut, Beneath The Veiled Embrace, Pythia have opened gateways to realms of wonder, transporting listeners from their everyday prisons to places where their hearts can sing again. When the songs that form the perfect whole of The Solace Of Ancient Earth embrace you, you can lose yourself in grand adventure, be taken over by powerful emotions and open your mind’s eye on glorious vistas previously unimagined. The powerful yet beguiling voice of Sophie Dorman is your guide, narrator and guardian angel, leading you through landscapes carved out by towering riffs and thunderous drums, painted in swathes of symphonic colour and gilded in dazzling guitar melodies.
Mixed and mastered by Jacob Hansen (Volbeat, Doro, Kamelot etc), The Solace Of Ancient Earth sounds spectacular – vibrant and alive. Reaching heights beyond even their last critically acclaimed album, Shadows Of A Broken Past, The Solace Of Ancient Earth offers a breathtaking experience beyond the boundaries of all you know. Be ready when the call comes and let Pythia remind you how it feels to be alive!

ANGUERE – "Chacina" Video
Hi – Chris and Paul from Imperative PR here, with another incredible album from that bastion of great heavy metal, Pitch Black Records... Life and death; the two opposing states that are the essence of everything. Since humanity developed the power to reason, to question and wonder we have searched for the meaning in life and the secrets that lie beyond the grave. Is there a purpose to the pain and loss that so often defines our existence? Do the answers that will make sense of everything lie beyond the cold soil, the incinerating fire, the unfathomable darkness? Hailing from Athens, the cradle of philosophy, named for Athena, goddess of wisdom, Lightfold are here to explore the ultimate mysteries with their incredible second album, Deathwalkers... Lightfold combine the brave, adventurous, challenging nature of progressive metal with the heroic, captivating, irrepressible energy of power metal to create something truly special. Their sound gifts itself to the telling of stories and the exploring of ideas. It fires the imagination and leads the listener through a maze of dreams, painting breathtaking pictures and weaving magical visions. Their 2014 debut album, Time To Believe was a brilliant beginning to what will surely be a remarkable tale, with METAL ZONE commenting on the abundance of “great ideas with great variety in sound, tempo and melody”. After this strong start Lightfold looked to the future with even greater ambition and prepared to explore life, death and beyond within the boundaries of one incredible concept album – Deathwalkers. The music that Lightfold have crafted on Deathwalkers is astounding; the melodies dancing over the mountainous, thundering, rhythmic foundations, the quicksilver guitar solos spiralling into the stratosphere while new vocalist Martin Deathwalker is our narrator, leading us ever on, our constant companion on this spellbinding journey. Pitch Black Records are known throughout the music world for their appreciation of the very finest in metal and they have flung their support behind Lightfold’s incredible creative efforts. On April 5th Deathwalkers will be released and recognition for this brave new voice in progressive power metal will surely follow. This is more than just another album – this is a journey into mystery, an adventure in worlds unseen, a blending of music and thought in one spellbinding explosion of creativity. Let Lightfold take you on a quest for truth beyond the borders of eternity. Visit Lightfold on Facebook, Pre-order from the Pitch Black Records store or bandcamp on CD or digital download. Check out a streaming track with free download and the accompanying lyric video at Pitch Black Records.

Metal United World Wide: Summoning the Spirit of Metal
Metal United World Wide, the huge metal community effort, goes in the second round. The date is set: 15 June 2019! That's only 4 months to go and preparations are speeding up.
Last year, it was a very long night, starting with Australia and Papua New Guinea with Asia, Africa and Europe joining in and the Americas closing up. There were too many highlights to count but one stand out was maybe the show in the Damaskus bazar. The Syrian capital is more associated with war than with party and it was great to see a metal party going on there. Check out last year's Metal United World Wide in our archive.
Summoning the Spirit of Metal is not an easy task. Already around 40 promoters and organisers have joined forces to get the night of metal rolling. More are about to join. Media, label and PR partners support "MUWW" with announcements and spreading the word. For all those who would like to contribute, contact email@example.com either for media/label/PR partnerships or if you would like to organise a show or add an existing show to MUWW. Contact Michael also for all other requests regarding contribution and participation. It is a community undertaking so the more the merrier.
So, let's get to it. United We Stand, Divided We Fall! \m/
„Powerful, melodic und varied. Max impresses as a singer with a unique phrasing. Thumbs up!“ Linus Klausenitzer (OBSCURA)
„By now and without exaggeration we talk about one of the strongest albums of the still so early year. It will be hard for others to come up to this. (…) This is high quality with lots of emotion created art.” Metal-Heads.de
"Filigree finesse, brutely performed und produced for stadiums... you have to risk more than just one ear" John Gahlert (DEADLOCK)
“I hear outstanding vocals, heavy loaded riffs that are filled with dark atmospheric tunes, energetic and twisted musical highlights. I hear constantly nice melodic lines and they work addictive to me.” MetalToInfinity.be
„M.I.GOD. created with „Specters On Parade“ a really sophisticated und diverse record that sometimes remind with all the intermezzos and radio play sequences of metal classics like „Operation: Mindcrime“. Singer / Songwriter Max Chemnitz, lead guitarist Uli Holzermer and the new members really have accomplished something great.“ MyRevelations.de
“Specters On Parade” (…) is a brilliant piece of musical art to blow your mind for days. (…) You have no reason not to like and spread this band!” TheMetalMag.com
M.I.GOD. provide the best bridging to their album release and present their first Lyric Video for the opener track „The Solitary Ghost“.
The song is a sheer wrecking ball made of raw heavyness, unbridled groove and engaging hooks that won't let the listener off the hook! Like the main character of the album concept, you get pushed into the cold water and confronted with his disturbing state of mind:
Singer Max Chemnitz commends: “From one minute to the other a young man is thrown out of balance by mysterious vertigo and condemned to live a life full of uncertainty and fear. In this song evil starts to have its way.”
The video was created in close collaboration with the band by talented Italian videographer Stefano Mastronicola. The gloom of the lyrical background was visualized in an ingenious way and marks the beginning of a series of clips to the multi-layered album and its lyrical tour de force.
Pre-order „Specters On Parade“ in a 6-page digipak with 16-page booklet:
The multinational and visionary metal stars band TRAGUL, are pleased to share a brand new song and lyric video called "THE HUMMINGBIRD". The single was produced by the band, and mixed and mastered by their long time collaborator the grammy nominated producer Jacob Hansen (Epica, Amaranthe, Volbeat) at Hansen Studios in Denmark.
"The Hummingbird" video was conceived once again by the talented video producer Ingo Spörl from Hard Media who previously worked with the band on "Inside the Mirror" back in October 2018 and known for his work with bands such as Rhapsody of Fire, Epica, Avantasia, Edguy, Sonata Artica, Blind Guardian, Sabaton, Axel Rudi Pell, Serious Black, Accept, Sirenia, Helloween and many more.
About the single, "The Hummingbird" is a tasteful song that artfully showcases a softer side of the band, but with the characteristic soulful arrangements, the beautiful instrumentation and the sound vision of Tragul. The band once again delivers a song big on melody. The synths stand out through out the song, creating a strong atmosphere. The enchanting vocals of Zuberoa Aznarez (Diabulus in Musica) brings a mixture of softness and brightness giving a perfect symbiosis with the foundation by drummer Sander Zoer (ex Delain), bassist Oliver Holzwarth (ex Tarja, ex Blind Guardian) and guitarists Diego Bogarín and Steve Conley (Flotsam and Jetsam). A balance that exemplifies what the song is: magical and authentic. Also the well represented lyrics with profound and emotional meaning, alternating between English and Spanish, proffs that TRAGUL have many aces up their sleeve.
Speaking about the track and its accompanying music video, the founder, keyboardist and composer Adrian Benegas says, "I am very excited about this release, like a circle, everything is connected and returns to the start, THE HUMMINGBIRD has the essence of "Nostalgia" the opener from the last year (2018). Its a special song that shows another side as a band. I am very proud to present to you the music video for our brand new track THE HUMMINGBIRD, which is in my opinion THE BEST VIDEO we've ever released until today."

TRAGUL is an international symphonic metal project founded by keyboardist and composer Adrian Benegas. A band with an exceptional vision right from the outset, they are known for producing their own music and fantastic lyric videos, quickly gained a following online and around the world. It features an insanely talented cast of collaborators that includes spanish singer Zuberoa Aznarez (Diabulus In Musica), american guitarist Steve Conley (Flotsam and Jetsam), paraguayan guitarist Diego Bogarin, german bassist Oliver Holzwarth (ex Blind Guardian, ex Rhapsody of Fire, ex Tarja) and dutch drummer Sander Zoer (ex Delain).
The innovative band TRAGUL, breaks the mold taking their unique brand where no metal band has gone before. Trailblazers on the "song by song" releases, TRAGUL’s productions comes in a unique format which consists on releasing single tracks during the year accompained by visual support such as videos and lyric videos to stand out from the traditional path of albums and Eps.
This is a band that does not believe in standing still. Even with its brief musical path, TRAGUL is recognized by its potential, unique style and musical vision. Since June 2017 to the date, the band has released 9 singles so far, widely acclaimed by critics, internet presence, radio play, tv appearances, and great public acceptance around the world.
Even Vast formed in 1998 and recorded their first album "Hear Me Out" in Holland at the Beaufort Studios (other bands recorded here include The Gathering and Phlebotomized). "Hear Me Out" was released in 1999 through Black Lotus Records.
Thanks to the success of the first album other labels expressed interest in the band, in 2001 "Where the Trees Still Speak" was released on MCD and Picture MLP through Ars Metalli/Painkiller Records. In 2003 "Outsleeping" album was released through Mausoleum Records which provided good promotion for the band and increased popularity. April 2007 was the date of the third full length album (under MyKingdom Music) “Teach Me How To Bleed”.
After a pause of 9 Years, Even Vast have returned based between Manchester and Nottingham, with a new line up and a new sludge/doom sound. Not only that, there's the addition of a quirky Saxophonist, work on a new album and a return to live performances. As of January 1st we are now represented by Blackskull Services for Management/bookings.

We loudly present the new "DEMONS" album Kiss Off!
Their sixth full length and eighth album (if you count the short ones), it will be out in April via Alaska and on the amazing label God's Candy Records.
In the service of punk rock since 1995, this is the band their former label constructed the genre "punk'n'roll" for. Whatever you wanna call it it's the real deal coming straight from the horse's mouth of Sweden's most obscure legends.
"DEMONS" released an avalance of records in 2018 (one with legend Jeff Dahl) on a host of great indie labels and played prominent festivals. Read all about it in this recent interview in Mass Movement Magazine: http://massmovement.co.uk/demons/
Now "DEMONS" will be upping the ante in 2019.

NEW MUSIC VIDEO OUT 25/1!
Up & coming Metalband SAREA from Sweden are releasing a brand new music video for their song "Black at Heart", 25th of January.
Prepare for the SAREA madness!
"My real name is Alex and my stage name is Amawtta. I'm guitarist of Mars Ultor a new metal band from Ecuador created in November 2017, the band was created by me and my friend Dorian (Vocalist). We are a duet. We have chosen to work like duet because it's very hard to find musicians in this country (Especially for Heavy Metal) , so we paid for session musicians to complete this recording. Our band name, I know, we are not italians, but we are connected in many ways with this beautiful country. I'm writing this letter because we want to share our music with you. As you can notice, this song is not written in English or Spanish (Our mother language) LA VENDETTA DEL DIAVOLO was written by me, only the vocal melody runs by Dorian, this song talks about Karma (The tittle came because I watched a video of the final between AC Milan vs Liverpool 2007), I lost a big chance in my life, I'd felt rage, impotence and sadness, so I wrote this song (Like AC Milan I know that someday I will get my own revenge). Anyway, nobody escapes from justice. Why Italian? Because when I listened Italian for first time I knew that it's an elegant language, it was the only language which can help me to give the elegance and make justice to my song. In addition, this is part of our personal challenge and it's part of the concept that we want to drive in our musical career. We had released this song 3 weeks ago, many italians and non-italian friends gave us good comments about the song. Even many youtubers have asked us for using the song on their videos. We are working in a E.P. and the first album of the duet. That's all that I can say I hope you like it!!! Thank you in advance and hugs!!!"
