Black .44 from Helsinki, Finland hits the studio at the end of February to record their debut album. The band, founded in 2011, plays melodic Stoner Metal and released their first demo-ep in 2012, receiving some great feedback in the Finnish Metal media. Black .44 songs tell dark stories about your regular hometown murderers and those poor souls that just happen to be born crooked or just always seem to make the wrong choices in life. The band is influenced by such artists as Pantera, Black Sabbath, Down and Alice in Chains. Heavy riffs and catchy melodies spiced up with a twist of that southern groove are the trademarks of Black .44.

The album will be released in autumn 2015, by Finnish record label Inverse Records. The name and release date of the debut will be announced later.

Critical Praise:

“Germany’s Slaughterday have the gumption (and instinct) to take T. Gabriel Fischer’s get-up-and-say-Hey! vox, back it with tested-and-true Oakland CA death/doom found in the collection of every serial killer, and inject the mishmash with a Swedish melodic sensibility cultivated from the early ’90s to present.” – Worm Gear ‘Zine

LA Rocker Lets Her Inner Wild Vixen Make a Sassy Introduction

Los Angeles, CA – Standing on the verge of an explosive and lengthy music career is the blindingly beautiful, pop/rock powerhouse DIAMANTE, who is releasing her scorching single and music video, “Savage.” This latest cut is an energy-driven smash, full of attitude, killer beats, sexy vocals and in-your-face lyrics. Guaranteed to evoke non-stop head banging, “Savage” shows the singer coming into her own as a young top-notch, award-winning artist.

“Impossible” has garnered close to 240,000 views and counting, her infectious single and video recently “Goodbye” premiered on her VEVO-certified YouTube channel along with a just announced VEVO Live Performance Series. This teen just acquired Twitter verified status with a fast growing base of over 43,000 followers. With thousands of national and international doting fans fired up for another dose, the singer’s popularity continues to soar.

Showing her mature side and even a little skin, “Savage” depicts a fearless woman who knows what she wants and how to get it. In this first-class music video, directed by Adam Domenici with CODENAME Pictures, DIAMANTE teamed up with the popular up-and-coming alternative/rock/pop band False Puppet to play her lead boys. Acting as a feisty heartbreaker, DIAMANTE toys with the boys’ emotions as she works her magic in the bar, making them think that she wants them and then leaves them pining and confused. The burgeoning rock star deemed this “her coming of age song” showing that she is no longer the young teen artist of her past. Unveiling her daring look, DIAMANTE dons her lighter blonde locks and toned figure which makes her statuesque features stand out.

Creating the melody entirely, the sassy singer reached out to composers Joshua Hernandez and Kevin Savigar for prodigious instrumentals with the legendary Kenny Aronoff on drums. Produced by Kevin Savigar (Rod Stewart, Daughtry, Lita Ford), “Savage” showcases DIAMANTE’s spine chilling vocal range as she delivers intense conviction and raw honesty. The lyrics “Hell yea, I’m a wild heart, couldn’t catch me even if they tried” ring in the start of the hook and shoots the song’s energy through the roof. Rock lovers are surely in for a treat with this track.

Now a resident of the Entertainment Capitol, Diamante Bovelli is originally an East Coast girl so her no-mess, straightforward attitude comes out in her music. With an edgy style, reminiscent of Pat Benatar and Debbie Harry, DIAMANTE channels vintage rock in her music and fashion. Her uniquely seasoned voice makes this sultry songstress a standout artist in today’s sea of gimmicks and imitators.

Since her early years, DIAMANTE has always been invested in music and has been singing and performing since she was a child. As one of the most hard-working teens in the industry, DIAMANTE won the Ernie Ball Battle of the Bands granting her an opening slot at the Van Warped Tour, performed across the country on the “Age of Rebellion Southern California Tour” and the East and West Coast leg of the “No Bully Tours America.”

This rising artist released her super single and music video “Impossible,” which received radio spins on KIIS FM in Los Angeles, New York, Mexico, UK, and Australia. Earlier this year, she showed her compassionate side at the House of Blues Summer Bash in San Diego in a philanthropic effort to raise funds for Tunes for Tots of Southern California and Make-A-Wish America.

Aug. 27, 2013, Philadelphia – Baroness has unveiled a live video for March To The Sea via Vevo (, which was filmed at the Union Transfer in singer/guitar player John Baizley’s adopted hometown of Philadelphia.

The four-minute clip, which opens with the enthusiastic crowd chanting “welcome back” to the obviously emotional band, highlights Baroness’ first live performance following the well-documented accident that left the band members severely injured.

Baroness has been on the road steadily since May, having performed at several festivals including Bonnaroo, Orion Music + More, Lollapalooza and most recently FYF Fest. Entertainment Weekly described the band’s Lollapalooza performance as “a volcanic eruption of thick riffs, spry solos, and wicked vocal bellows” while Rolling Stone’s FYF Fest review highlighted Baroness’ “feats of stunning metal artistry.” The band wraps up their North American tour dates on Sept. 6 at KISW’s Pain in the Grass before heading to Europe in late September as well as trekking to Australia in February for the Soundwave Festival.

REVOLUTION HARMONY – “We Are” Lyric Video Streaming Now; Single Releases On Mandela Day, July 18th

Posted in Hard Rock, hard rock songs, Heavy Metal, heavy metal news, Metal, metal music, Music, rock music, rock music news, rock videos with tags , , , , on July 8, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

Revolution Harmony - We Are - promo cover pic - #2

Revolution Harmony, the brainchild of British music lecturer/journalist Ray Holroyd, has announced the July 18th release of its debut All-Star charity single, We Are. The song features vocals from Serj Tankian (System Of A Down) and Ihsahn (Emperor), as well as guitar solos by Devin Townsend.

Composed, arranged, programmed and produced by Ray Holroyd in Vancouver, the complex international studio project was recorded in North America, England, Norway and New Zealand, then mixed by Rohan Onraet (Slipknot, Machine Head) in London, and mastered by Ted Jensen (Green Day, Muse) in New York. The single also features Stefan Loh (We Claimed Sentience Once – signed to Revolution Harmony) on guitars, and additional vocals from the young up-and-coming UK singer Abbie Johnson.

Stone Says: Below, Listen to the song We Are and read it’s inspiring and mystical lyrics. A brilliant song from top to bottom, an epic song that gives me the chills… in a grand way. A powerful song is We Are; thanks to the powerful musicians and vocalists that have made it soar so prolifically. We Are is: ten stars out of ten stars… and 5 Metal fists out of 5 Metal fists! Metal be thy name.

Metal Odyssey is proud to support Ray Holroyd, Revolution Harmony and the charities that benefit from the sale of We Are.

Vancouver-based non-profit record label Revolution Harmony was launched in 2011 by Holroyd. After founding the non-profit Grade 9 Records in 2008 and growing the label over three successful years, Holroyd decided to expand upon what he had originally established as a means for his students to sell their music and donate the profits to charity, and Revolution Harmony was born. Revolution Harmony acts as a two-way channel, providing an outlet for artists to release their music worldwide and earn money from it, and providing an inlet for the label profits from that music to be redirected to charities that restore harmony between all people, animals and the environment.Revolution Harmony - We Are - Charity Single - flyer promo - July 2013

The lyrical theme in ‘We Are’ is based on the concept behind Revolution Harmony, which is essentially the belief that musical harmony has the power to inspire a revolution towards societal harmony. The single is dedicated to Nelson Mandela and the memory of Lucky Dube, regarded as South Africa’s Bob Marley, and will be released worldwide on Mandela Day (18 July), with all proceeds donated to Buskaid, a charity that provides free music lessons and instruments to children in the townships of South Africa.

INHALE THE FALL – Melodic Hard Rock and Melodic Metal fans get prepared. INHALE THE FALL have entered the Metal building. They’re new music video for their new song Weak is a totality of melodically heavy bliss. Both song and video = quality enriched. This Irish band should be on ALL Rock, Hard Rock and Metal aficionado’s radars… they have that much sumptuous crossover appeal!

Jenny O’ Keeffe on vocals may have some Lzzy Hale appeal to her tones; only this original gal comes across as a legitimate contender for Heavy Rock’s top 20 female vocalist list… in our Metal future. This is a very astute band and I’m ready for more! Read below for a more detailed background on INHALE THE FALL. Take a listen and look below to the Weak music video and crank ‘er up high! Metal be thy name.


While playing in various local bands Eibhlin Palfrey and Pavol Rosa decided to reach out and find a new sound. Inhale The Fall, the duo’s first major musical exploration emerges from the ashes and takes to the Cork (Ireland) music scene. The band’s video release, Weak, released June 2013, is an eclectic version of the Skunk Anansie track . Full of melodic arrangements with soaring vocals reminiscent of Halestorm and Guano Apes, this track will do Cork proud.

Utilizing a Cork based production team Epic Productions, Inhale The Fall explodes on to the Cork music scene with  a hauntingly eerie music video that touches on disturbing issues that reflect people’s social lives today.

In an age of sludgy power chords, Inhale The Fall represents a needed breath of fresh air, where melody, lyrics, and song writing are just as important as loud guitars and a solid rhythm section.

SHAKRA “Powerplay” – Releases In North America On January 29th, via AFM RECORDS; “Wonderful Life” Video Is Online!

Posted in Hard Rock, hard rock albums, hard rock bands, Heavy Metal, Music, rock music, rock music news, rock videos with tags , , , , , on January 12, 2013 by Metal Odyssey

Shakra - Powerplay - promo cover pic!

“Powerplay”: the title says it all. The 9th album of Swiss Power Rockers SHAKRA, picks up where their last chart-breaking album, Back on Track, left off.

‘Even though it is difficult to top being No. 2 in the charts, we believe that the new album has got what it takes to do just that!’,the band explains in a mix of confidence and sober analysis. ‘We are very satisfied with “Powerplay”. Now it’s up to the public and the fans”.

Even after 20 years of band history, the original band members Thom Blunier (guitar), Thomas Muster (guitar), and Roger Tanner (drums) along with the band’s two young guns, Dominik Pfister (bass) and most particularly singer John Prakesh, have grown together over the years to build a unit that has just one overriding goal: to make good, honest, hand-made Hard Rock.

While SHAKRA had to deal with a few line-up changes over the years, the five-man band now at last has the time to focus completely on what it does best: Rock’n’Roll. The result is Blunier, Muster, Tanner, Pfister, and Prakesh’s “Powerplay”, an album that is utterly irresistible.

The 13-track LP is the most varied SHAKRA album so far. The band has grown and blossomed in this formation throughout the 50 gigs they have played together. Songs such as “Dream of Mankind”, “Higher”, “Wonderful Life” and “Because Of You” display the whole variety of SHAKRA’s sound. The album was once again produced by Thom Blunier in the Powerride studios. “Powerplay” is a high-class traditional but at the same time up-to-date piece of work. What more could a fan ask for?
