SHIELD OF WINGS – Release Captivating Video For First Single “Wetland”

Posted in Metal, metal music, Music, music news, news with tags , , , , , , , on January 9, 2022 by Metal Odyssey

Midwest American Symphonic Metal band SHIELD OF WINGS emerge from their hiatus, and make their thrilling entry into the new year with their debut single, “Wetland”. The song is coupled with a captivating music video. “Wetland” is the first offering from their forthcoming debut full-length album, Unfinished, set to release February 11th. Sure to appeal to fans of symphonic metal giants NIGHTWISH and EPICA, as well as film score composers like HANS ZIMMER, JAMES HORNER, and HOWARD SHORE, their new album, Unfinished, will bring into view 10 bombastic compositions of poetic exploration.

Vocalist Lara Mordian comments on the “Wetland” filming process:

’Shooting Wetland, and wading through that cold, wet, filth, was a challenging albeit invigorating time for me. Prior to filming in late autumn, I was warned of the certain discomfort to come, but I was reassured by James that “pain is temporary, film is forever”, and I embraced it.”.

Each song from Unfinished explores themes of growth through self-examination, regret, sacrificial death and rebirth. From the “Crushing Hail” of the suffering which is inherent in life, the listener is carried through this journey, until the final track expounds upon the realization that we are all, in ways, “The Scarred Clay Reshaping.” With bold, vast orchestral compositions soaring over chugging guitars, SHIELD OF WINGS makes it abundantly clear that they are Unfinished, in more ways than one.

GRAMMA VEDETTA – Release 8Bit Version Of “The Hum Of The Machine”

Posted in Hard Rock, Music, music news, news with tags , , , , on January 9, 2022 by Metal Odyssey

GRAMMA VEDETTA has released their new album The Hum Of The Machine in its entirety, as an 8Bit version. Available on their Bandcamp, this is a nice surprise for their fans as they await the release of the full album.

Stream and download the album here: https://grammavedetta.bandcamp.com/album/the-hum-of-the-machine-8bit

“We recommend listening to this gem in headphones while waiting for the full release, the one made with loud amplifiers, various noises, bang, crash, boom and aaaaaarrrrgghhgghgh, out on May 27th via Mandrone Records.”

The idea was born from Marco’s experiments with the virtual-synth “Super Audio Boy” during the release of the previous EP and it has now become his (and the band’s) tradition to publish the rearranged songs in a version that pays homage to the music of 1980s and ’90s video games.

The artwork was created by Dan as a tribute to the cartridge artwork from Nintendo, Sega and Commodore 64.

Tracklist:

  1. A Chance To Win The Orb (8Bit)
  2. Starlight Portal Show (8Bit)
  3. Robots For War (8Bit)
  4. A Broken Time Machine (8Bit)
  5. The Electric Game (8Bit)
  6. The Future Of The Past (8Bit)
  7. Transmission’s On (8Bit)
  8. The General Magnetic And The Spanish Wormhole (8Bit)
  9. I Feel The Comfort (The Hum Of The Machine) (8Bit)
