by Anabel DFlux — Sr. Photojournalist — September 15, 2018 at the Viper Room in West Hollywood, CA. — Local Los Angeles group BatFarm kicked major butt at the Viper Room on Saturday the 15th, opening for Love And a .38’s EP release party! The collaborative music project of recording artists, Alexx Calise, and Dennis Morehouse, Batfarm is an emotional, energetic, and absolutely mind-blowingly talented musical endeavor. “Formed over 3 years ago by Calise and Morehouse, who had worked together on the song, “In My Pocket” for an independent film of the same name, Batfarm incorporates elaborate choral harmonies with dysphoric distortion, ominous soundscapes and deeply introspective lyrics reminiscent of rock ‘n’ roll stalwarts Pink Floyd, Electric Light Orchestra, Portishead, and The Cure. NVIG is a concept album deeply rooted in existentialism, and chronicles the demise of the human spirit” writes the band’s official Facebook page.

by Arta Gailuma — Photojournalist — September 19, 2018 at O2 Institute in Birmingham, U.K. — The question is, can an 80’s Rock band after a long break can still be successful? It’s not something many bands are able to do, but Swedish rock veterans Europe have proved, they definitely can. They were filling tonight O2 Academy’s main room with people of different generations, starting from loyal fans who have been following Europe since their beginnings to younger supporters, whose musical taste has been shaped by their parent’s album collection. Support this evening was coming from British blues rockers King King. Fronted by the kilt-wearing Glaswegian Alan Nimmo, the band, even though they delivered a very strong set, the band failed to impress the crowd with their bluesy ballads. It was a totally different story with the main act. As soon as Europe took the stage, the crowd livened up in excitement. Joey Tempest is a strong frontman, who tirelessly entertains the fans. Playing around with his mic stand, he was interacting with the crowd and even with us, photographers. Kicking off with two pieces from the latest 2017 album Walk The Earth, in the hour and half long set [...]

by Franco Cerchiari — Sr. Columnist — While firmly set in their Christian beliefs, Sweden’s Narnia has made a career of blending Hard Rock, Neoclassical shredding, hints of Symphonic and sweeping melodies. Recorded during Narnia’s 2017’s “Still I Believe” tour of Brazil is the band’s second live release, following 2006’s At Short Notice: Live In Germany. Fans of fellow Christian metallers Barren Cross, Theocracy, Seventh Avenue, DivineFire or Golden Resurrection (both of which feature Narnia frontman Christian Liljegren) will certainly be fans of Narnia, and truth be told, We Still Believe: Made In Brazil, by all accounts is a fine live album, with pretty notable guitar mastery, soaring melodies and a great rapport between the band and a very enthusiastic, and engaged audience. It is evident as well that while hearing this live release, the band sounds like they are truly trying to put on a great show for their fans, and their love for playing live is tangible throughout this CD’s playing time. And for that, Narnia is to be commended. Encompassing Narnia’s entire career, We Still Believe: Made In Brazil, makes no secret that this is a Christian band, and they are “messengers of Christ.” Heard before the [...]

Shredguy Records is proud to announce their 35th release on September 24th titled DEFYING DESTINY by Brazilian guitarist Phoenix Van Der Weyden. On the eight-track album, Phoenix shows her great technical skills, while also knowing how to compose a great instrumental song. Giving nod to her inspirations Vinnie Moore, Reb Beach, Vito Bratta, and Tony MacAlpine, this album will please the fans of the early Shrapnel Records releases and guitar heroes of the 80’s. Van Der Weyden has recently secured an endorsement from Kramer guitars and appeared on the second episode of the Kramers Korner show. Shredguy Records’ Michael McDowell comments: “I first saw Phoenix on YouTube, in a number of videos. And she was not just playing fast licks or cover songs, but also her own compositions, and that’s important in a day and age of what my friend and fellow guitarist David Mercado called the Guitubist. You have to be able to compose your own songs and be true to who you really are to the fans, and Phoenix checks both of those boxes. She is great to work with and also a great instructor in her country of Brazil, with many students. And she has even helped [...]

by Arta Gailuma — Photojournalist — August 10 – 11, 2018 at Oldehoofsterkerkhof Leeuwarden, the Netherlands — Two hours by train from Amsterdam the last major city before the North Sea and the European Capital of Culture in 2018, Leeuwarden was the main destination in The Netherlands for metalheads on the second weekend in August. Taking place in quite a unique setting- on a former graveyard and set against the backdrop of a historical unfinished church of Oldehove with a mega line-up, despite its young age, Into The Grave festival has earned a great reputation and is a treat for any metal fan. In the past years at the festival, fans have enjoyed Kreator, Slayer, Sepultura, Sodom, Life Of Agony, Sabaton, Amon Amarth, Arch Enemy just to mention few. Into The Grave festival’s 8th edition took place on August 10th and 11th at the town center of Leeuwarden, the Netherlands. This year’s line up was not any less impressive and featured something for every taste. Moshpit was open straight away as soon as the first festival band Toxic Shock took the stage. What normally for an opening band would be hard to achieve this early in the day for these [...]
