Morningstar, la nouvelle vidéo blasphématoire de Dark Archive est disponible aujourd'hui!
Dark Archive a sorti un nouveau clip impressionnant pour leur nouveau single,Morningstar”.
Ce titre fait parti de leur futur album. Cet album est intégralement composé et après quelques améliorations, le groupe va finalement débuter l'enregistrement des guitares. Quand l'album sortira, le groupe sera au complet. Tous expérimentés, les membres sont sincèrement déterminés, motivés et partagent le même but : viser aussi haut que possible.
Cette chanson et cette vidéo sont le résultat de six mois de travail acharnés, ce qui prouve l'engagement du groupe, qui est pour le moment indépendant.
Les orchestrations ont été créées par l'irlandais Peter Crowley, qui a déjà coopéré avec nombre de groupes de Metal. Peter leur a également affirmé qu'il était très motivé à travailler avec Dark Archive à nouveau.
Les membres de Dark Archive se donnent corps et âme dans le groupe, et chacun d'eux partage la même passion : avoir la chance de partager une tournée avec les plus grands de cet univers tout en dédiant leur vie à cette passion, ils n'ont pas d'autre objectif.
Morningstar, le single mais également le nouvel album ont été enregistrés et mixés par Joakim Lindholm dans le studio du groupe.
Le chanteur Niko Aromaa dit de la vidéo : "Elle raconte l'histoire sacrée de comment Dieu a abandonné son propre fils Lucifer, transposée dans une version plus mortelle où une famille pieuse abandonne son enfant. Et il devient l'incarnation de Satan sur Terre après avoir intégré ce douloureux passé."
"Morningtar" est disponnible sur toutes les plate-formes digitales.

We´re very proud and honoured to announce this new band to join our cast!

Hailing from a cold and freezing city in South America, AMBITION is here to reinforce that brazilian underground scene is not only about extreme metal (speed, thrash, death, black, etc)... Yes !!! The nostalgic "denim and leather" spirit of the late 70´s & early 80´s also lives somewhere deep in the land of samba and football !!!

Highly influenced by the classic old vintage sound of Krokus, AC/DC, Nazareth, The Rods, Saxon, Budgie, Picture, Riot, Chariot, Mama´s Boys, Battleaxe, etc... AMBITION is an excellent find/option for all those who are looking for new bands playing some raw, rough and "in your face" hard and heavy rock´n´roll/heavy metal with steady riffs and powerful choruses.

We're super exicted to unleash their debut release which will be a 7" single called "Burning Love" to be out in the next months !
More infos (artwork, song-online, how to pre-order...) coming soon, stay tuned !!! Beware! The ambition is ready to burn !!!

It was a Rough Grind but they Finnished strong!
The Finnish rock/metal band Rough Grind released their new EP "Trouble or Nothing" via Inverse Records on July 13th.
The first single "Gilded Cage" gave us a heads-up for what is to come, and Rough Grind definitely gets the message through again. These guys serve an interesting blend of hard rock and heavy metal with some classic rock influences, and now they've broadened their soundscape. The new EP features Petri Koistinen (Burnclear) on keyboards.
They write songs about topics close to their heart, like what is wrong with the world today ("Gilded Cage"), staying true to yourself even when people are trying to take you down ("Leap of Faith" and "Bulletproof") and how sorrow can crush you ("Hereafter").
If you love a nice blend of hard rock and metal with honest and poignant lyrics, "Trouble or Nothing" might be the hidden gem you have been searching for. And Rough Grind brings it all together in a unique way that makes it their own. Absolutely worth a listen.
Rough Grind's previous release "Four for the Road" (EP 2017, Inverse Records) was received well worldwide and got airplay in Europe, North America, South America, Asia and Australia.
