Long-running Washington-based heavy rock trio MOS GENERATOR will release a new full-length this May via Listenable Records. Titled Shadowlands, the eight-track studio offering was recorded in three sessions — June 2017, November 2017, and January 2018 — at the HeavyHead Recording Company in Port Orchard, Washington and comes swathed in the cover art of Adam Burke [Pilgrim, Satan’s Satyrs, Hooded Menace, Artificial Brain et al].

“Right from the opening song, Shadowlands is a record that, to me, feels more honest than our previous releases,” relays founding guitarist/vocalist/principal songwriter Tony Reed. “On this record, I introduce many other styles that I enjoy but they are intertwined so subtly that it doesn’t interrupt the classic MOS GENERATOR sound. That is a balance I’ve been looking for over the last few albums and I think the presence of [drummer] Jon Garrett and [bassist] Sean Booth have a lot to do with achieving that balance. It’s a heavy rock record that breaths and if I had to describe it further I would say it mixes ’70s style heavy rock, progressive rock, and also has some weird ’80s and ’90s underground rock nuances.”

Shadowlands will see release via Listenable Records in Europe on May 11th followed by a US street date of May 18th with preorder info to be announced in the coming weeks.

Shadowlands – Track Listing:
1. Shadowlands
2. The Destroyer

** MOS GENERATOR only

MOS GENERATOR formed during the Winter of 2000 in Port Orchard, Washington from the ashes of a decade-long on-again-off-again collaboration between its three members, all of which are long time veterans of the road and studio. The need to strip down to the basics of hard rock was apparent from the start and continues to be the foundation for the band’s recent material.

MOS GENERATOR has released seven studio albums, a retrospective album, a live album, and a plethora of split releases. 2015 brought in a new rhythm section and touring possibilities far beyond the limitations of the original lineup. This new lineup has changed the band into a relentless touring machine, delivering critically acclaimed performances both states and abroad. “They are so good,” gushed Maximum Volume Music, “you end up wanting to round-up a couple of mates, buy a Transit, form a three-piece rock ‘n’ roll band and go on tour.”

MOS GENERATOR:
Tony Reed – guitar, vocals, keyboards
Sean Booth – bass
Jon Garrett – drums

“It’s as pure an example of heavy rock as I’ve heard.” JJ Koczan – The Obelisk

KROSIS – North Carolina Based Death Metal Unit Joins Unique Leader Records

Posted in Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, music news, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , on October 29, 2017 by Metal Odyssey

KROSIS - promo band pic - 2017 - #33MO9ILMFSO337

North Carolina based Death Metal unit KROSIS is the latest addition to the Unique Leader Records roster. The band will release their forthcoming full-length in 2018.

Issues the band in a collective statement, “We are inexplicably humbled and thankful to be part of a family that some of our favorite bands have been a part of. To have Unique Leader Records see our project as something as worthwhile, original, and significant as we do means more than we can put into words. It is an understatement to say that we are looking forward to our next step as KROSIS,with Unique Leader Records at our sails.”

KROSIS was formed in Raleigh in 2014. A group of talented musicians and friends saw an unsatisfactory pattern starting within modern Metal music. The diverse collaboration of influences that make up the framework of KROSIS is why they put out the music that they do. Too much of modern Death Metal and Deathcore is limited to a paradigm; KROSIS seeks to eliminate boundaries. With backgrounds of rock, jazz, concert bands, and music theory, they pull no proverbial punches in terms of diversity, originality, and heaviness. They bring together many parts of a musical spectrum and emerge with an eclectic sound that proves appealing to lovers of heavy, themed music.

“We are all about creating new trends, fresh ideas, and even entirely unique genres,” the band notes. “Most of all, we’re proud to present every track, knowing that we gave our listeners and fans our absolute best. For some, living the dream is being in front of thousands, with lights and cameras aimed at them. For us, it’s each simple step along the way, each note and each beat, pouring our mind and soul into every creation, so that you can be a part of the experience with us.”

Stand by for further info on KROSIS in the weeks to come.

MOTHER FEATHER – To Join Here Come The Mummies For Special NYC Show

Posted in alternative rock, Hard Rock, Music, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , on August 31, 2016 by Metal Odyssey

Here Come The Mummies - Mother Feather - promo concert flyer - 2016 - #MO99ILMF33

On September 24th, New York City’s self-described “pop cock rock” unit MOTHER FEATHER will join Here Come The Mummies for a special show at the Gramercy Theatre in Manhattan. This will be the band’s first performance since their extensive US trek on the annual Vans Warped Tour, with more dates to be announced soon. For event and ticket information, please visit THIS LOCATION.

MOTHER FEATHER recently released their self-titled full-length, which includes ten tracks that marry the scratchy yet catchy, swaggering, and dangerous sounds of The Stooges, Blondie, and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs with the playfulness, pop sensibility, and exuberance of the finest ’90s alt-rock. Mother Feather is the combination of the band’s two independently released recordings – 2011’s Mother Feather EP and 2013’s Living Breathing EP – plus two new songs, “Natural Disaster” and “The Power.”

For their efforts, the group has garnered massive buzz for their unique sound, vibrant Bowie-esque costumes and makeup, and enthralling live show. Having been featured on IFC.com, TeamCoco.com, and HuffingtonPost.com (who declared them “a great New York City band in the tradition of Great New York City Bands”), MOTHER FEATHER was also named “new band of the week” by Metal Hammer and has received much play on Daniel P. Carter’s Rock Show on BBC Radio 1.

To preview and purchase Mother Feather, visit: metalblade.com/motherfeather where the record is available in various formats and the video for “Living, Breathing” (filmed by director Marc McAndrews at NYC’s Bowery Electric) can be viewed.

MOTHER FEATHER – Lineup:
Ann Courtney – vocals
Elizabeth Carena – vocals, keyboards
Matt Basile – bass
Chris Foley – guitar
Gunnar Olsen – drums

PERIPHERY PREMIERE “THE BAD THING” VIDEO VIA BILLBOARD; NORTH AMERICAN TOUR BEGINS APRIL 25

April 17, 2015, Washington, D.C. – Periphery, who are about to embark on the second leg of their North American tour dates in support of the Juggernaut albums, premiere “The Bad Thing” video today via Billboard:

(http://www.billboard.com/articles/columns/rock/6531885/periphery-the-bad-thing-video-exclusive).

Jeff Holcomb directed the clip, which features a montage of live footage from the DC-based prog-metal outfit’s early 2015 tour. Drummer Matt Halpern explained to Billboard, “We thought that a live performance for ‘The Bad Thing’ video was a great way to show the intensity of the song and to show our direct expression of how it makes us feel on stage.”

Periphery released Juggernaut: Alpha and Juggernaut: Omega simultaneously in late January via Sumerian Records, with the pair of releases landing at #22 and #25 on Billboard’s Top 200 (#15 and #16 on the Top Albums chart as well as #2 and #3 on Billboard’s Hard Rock Chart).

The band was on recent covers of Revolver and Outburn, who said, “Juggernaut… will most likely change the face of modern progressive metal as we know it.” Metal Sucks called the releases “full-fledged masterpieces” and Rolling Stone dubbed the albums “the group’s most ambitious project yet,” saying it “features some of the band’s most accessible music.”

Periphery begins a new round of North American dates on April 25 at Welcome to Rockville in Jacksonville, Fla. The band joins up with In Flames and All That Remains for a month of dates with stops at Carolina Rebellion, Rock on the Range and Rocklahoma interwoven.
