Diamante

Interview by Miriam C.

Los Angeles based singer Diamante, despite her young age, shows the power and grit of an experienced artist. It would be strange to you but Diamante, aside of a huge PR machine, has completely self-released her new debut EP called “Dirty Blonde” so we caught up the girl herself, just back from her successful Revolver’s ”Hottest Chicks In Hard Rock” tour. 
 
Hi Diamante, first of all, how are you and thank you for this special interview, we know that you are very busy promoting your new upcoming debut EP “Dirty Blonde”. How life is treating you nowadays?

Life has been rad! I just returned from tour about a week ago and I’ve been soaking in as much of Hollywood as I can before I leave. It’s been great seeing everyone and being able to rest, but I am excited to go back out on the road again. Continue reading »

Asylum Escape – Even If I’m Broken EP (2015)

Label: Crysella Records

Review by Mimi Robins

Here we’re introducing  mysterious band called Asylum Escape. Sketchy are the info avalaible about this band that has just released their debut EP “Even If I’m Broken” whose it begins with an echoing choir, which I love. It lends mystery to the rest of the album and sets a good precedent, I think. Deda Von Miseria‘s vocals seem really quiet to me, especially in the first few tracks, an interesting contrast from the instruments, which seem to take up more focus. “Even If I’m Broken” has elements of it that remind me of classic Evanescence (think “My Immortal”). The chorus is quite catchy, and stayed with me for a few days after my first listen through. I really liked the different instruments I was able to hear separately throughout the EP – it’s something I don’t usually remark right away, but here I took notice immediately. Continue reading »

End of Skyline – “EOS” EP (2015)

Independent Release

Review by Mimi Robins

I really enjoyed this EP by Italy’s modern metal band End of Skyline – I played it on repeat while packing up my room and preparing for a move, to the extent that I’ve almost got them memorized. My first impression of the songs and the vocals in particular is that they’d be the perfect to sing along to in a car.

Though I wasn’t sure what to expect, I found “Protection” to be heavier than expected – it just hit me in the face. I was grinning immediately, and replayed the first track a few times because I enjoyed it so much. It’s been stuck in my head for ages. “Reproach” is still moderately heavy, and I love the guitar lines in it. The bridge is stuck in my head and I love it. “Alone” is a little more low-key, and there’s something about it that just makes me feel very still and quiet. Continue reading »

Second Empire – “Second Empire” EP (2013)

Independent Release

Review by Tony Cannella

It’s good to see more and more symphonic metal coming from the U.S. lately. Pittsburgh’s Second Empire is one such band – and a good one at that. They have just issued their debut self-titled EP and after listening, I have to say that this band has a lot to offer.

The keyboard intro kicks off the opening tune “Everlasting” as the rumbling guitars join in. Lead vocalist Alex Lindsay Roth has a cool mid-range voice. This song really takes off in different directions with a strong orchestral part and a great solo. The next track, “Hold Me (‘Til We’re Both Dead)” gets started with a piano intro before the song steadily picks up the tempo. Still, this is a great mid-tempo song and one with an undeniably catchy melody and chorus. Continue reading »

Shiran – “Warm Winter Day” EP (2014)

Independent Release

Review by Alessandra Cognetta

Israeli band Shiran debuts with the EP “Warm Winter Day”, taking the first steps in the metal scene with a light but promising release. Shiran’s sound is a mix of classic heavy metal and pop tunes, revolving around the powerful voice of lead singer Shiran Avayou. “Warm Winter Day” is clearly still a developing stage of Shiran’s style, but it offers some promising elements.

From the inspired vocal lines of “Remain” and “Glint Of Light”, to the softer notes of the title track, which switch to a surprisingly heavier outro. The songs feel raw, partly for the best, partly showing that there is still some polishing to do, especially on the arrangement, which often comes off as blunt. Using a direct introduction doesn’t always work, as it usually gives off the sense that something is missing, Continue reading »
