Pirates are known for their parties. And of course for lots of YAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRs, but especially for their parties. So RUMAHOY have decided YARRR, it’s time for a new music video and we say YAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRR, we love it! Beware of dancing peg legs when Captain Yarrface asks for a fervent “Forest Party”, grab your partner and sway to and fro until your parrot goes overboard.
Captain Yarrface himself states: “Avast, ye pirates! When we’re not busy sailing on the seas of rum and treasure, we love to quest into the forests of our native North Carolina to drink ale and plunder wenches around a heritage campfire. So come with us far away from the ice and the snow and join in our forest party! YARR!”
RUMAHOY’s full-length and Napalm Records debut “The Triumph Of Piracy” will be released on February 9th 2018 across the seven seas!

South African singer-songwriter and guitarist, Dan Patlansky, is set to the release his new studio album Perfection Kills in the UK on Friday 2nd February 2018. The album is the follow up to 2016’s critically acclaimed “Introvertigo” which was voted #1 Blues Rock Album 2016 by Blues Rock Review.

He’s been voted Most Promising Male Blues Artist by Blues & Soul Magazine, and only recently has he been nominated as Best International Solo Artist at the Planet Rock Radio ‘Rocks’ Awards.

Templeton Pek are starting 2018 with a bang and release their second single “The Awakening”, taken from the upcoming album “Watching The World Come Undone” (out February 23rd)! Not only is it a fast-paced and melodic anthem, but also a song with an important message according to the band, who share a little insight:
“The Awakening is a song that came about pretty quick in the process, it seemed to encapsulate the feeling at the time we wrote it. We were going through the beginnings of Brexit vote and lots of other world tension was escalating politically.
It has been a wake up call for a lot of people who are just sick of politicians and being lied to or ‘influenced,’ and as a by product seems to have actually got more people taking an interest in having their say, how their countries or cities are being run and actually using their votes or voices.”
Dark synthpop duo MIRACLE share the official video for “Light Mind” off the impending, sophomore full-length album The Strife of Love in a Dream. Watch the Michael James Lewis directed video HERE. The Strife of Love in a Dream is due out worldwide February 16th on CD/LP/Digital via Relapse Records. Physical pre-orders are available via Relapse.com and digital downloads are available .
Esoteric synth-pop duo MIRACLE unites the forces of renowned horror film music composer and synthesizer artisan Steve Moore (one half of Pittsburgh post-rock legends Zombi) with multi-instrumentalist Daniel O’Sullivan, whose CV includes stints in such varied outfits as Ulver, Grumbling Fur, Æthenor, Sunn O))), Guapo, Mothlite and This Is Not This Heat. Active since 2006, their new album The Strife Of Love In A Dream explores visions of the arcane and the hypermodern, the phantasmic and the familiar, across eight gothic psychodramas inspired by everything from Kate Bush and Glenn Danzig to Robert Anton Wilson and J.G. Ballard.
The pair met on a U.S. tour in 2006 and soon began shaping a composite sound from their disparate talents, leading to releases on London-based House Anxiety and beloved UK IDM institution Planet Mu. Their latest offering flexes new dimensions of their craft, both more lyrically adventurous and melodically infectious. Moore’s complex latticework of hypnotic electronics are twisted into warped forms by O’Sullivan’s oblique arrangements and vocal histrionics, alternately conjuring moods of Arcadian gardens and black netherworlds. These are synthetic dreams within dreams, warped through the looking glass of two contemporary masters of ambitious progressive music.
“We pursue a confluence of identities in order to cultivate a self obliterating totality.” –Daniel O’Sullivan
You have been warned by the first band trailer that LETTERS FROM THE COLONY’s debut album Vignette (out on February 16th) is the thing you need to own. Today, the progressive extreme metal architects launch the second trailer for their upcoming full length release and unveil the scandalous background of some of their band members – in particular their ex-bassist and current guitarist Johan Jönsegård, who had to quit his position, after it was simply to dangerous for him, before Emil Östberg bravely took his place. Watch the clip with the first impressive live snippets of these Swedes and singer Alexander Backlund discussing the album lyrics and the main target audience while repairing bicycles and waiting for his second Lamborghini!
Vignette is now available for pre-order here: http://nblast.de/LFTCVignette
LETTERS FROM THE COLONY build upon the intersection between perfection and ordered chaos; the unbridled joy of experimentation and virtuosic instrument mastery and create their new niche compartment of technically challenging extreme metal. They deliver highly complex songs full of unbound aggression and progressive structures in the vein of MESHUGGAH, OPETH or GOJIRA and also do not shy away from playing saxophone with a guitar or sampling the call of a deer into a track!
