Nach der enormen Veröffentlichung der ersten Single Not The End Of The Road“ des gleichnamigen bevorstehenden Albums, lassen KISSIN’ DYNAMITE erneut die Reifen ordentlich brennen mit ihrer explosiven neuen Single What Goes Up!

Die Deutschen Chartstürmer (#7 der Deutschen Album Charts) liefern mit What Goes Upeinen weiteren Banger voll gefährlicher Gitarrenriffs und hymnischer Hooks, der garantiert den Mund eines jeden Heavy Metal Fans weit offen stehen lassen wird. Zur neuen Single lassen KISSIN‘ DYNAMITE mit einem hochwertig auf Mallorca produzierten Musikvideo den Sommer gebührend ausklingen!

KISSIN’ DYNAMITE zu What Goes Up”:
„What Goes Up" ist die Verkörperung unseres Leitspruchs „Bring Back Stadium Rock!“ Ein geschmackvolles Gitarrenriff leitet den Song ein, gerahmt von donnernden 2-Viertel Trommeln. Man verspürt sofort das Bedürfnis, seine Lederjacke anzuziehen, mit seinen Freunden auszugehen und einfach eine gute Zeit zu haben. Der sexy Shuffle-Rhythmus führt zu einem catchy Refrain, den man einfach Mitsingen muss. Textlich geht es um einen Protagonisten, der alles erreicht hat, aber am Ende immer noch unzufrieden ist. Das alles wollten wir in einem kinotauglichen Broadcast-Video unterbringen, das so ziemlich jedes denkbare Rock-Klischee bedient - einfach weil wir es können! Also taucht in diese längst vergessene Welt des Stadionrocks ein, denn 'What Goes Up' must come down!“

Schaue jetzt das offizielle Musikvideo zu „What Goes Up“ HIER:
 
Die 2007 gegründete Heavy-Metal-Formation KISSIN‘ DYNAMITE hat sich mehr als nur einen Namen in der Szene gemacht: Mit sechs Studioalben und diversen Chartplatzierungen (#7 in den deutschen Albumcharts mit Ecstasy 2018) etablierte die Band ihren eigenen Stil - geprägt von modernem Sound, großen Hymnen gepaart mit eingängigen Hooks und 80er-Jahre-Stadionrock-Attitüde. Jetzt ist das für seinen exzentrischen Look bekannte fünfköpfige Quartett bereit, ihr Napalm Records-Debüt Not The End Of The Road zu veröffentlichen und das Heavy Metal-Jahr 2022 mit Vollgas einzuläuten!

Produziert, aufgenommen und gemischt wurde das neue Studioalbum von Sänger Hannes Braun (Südland Music) selbst, der auch schon mit Bands wie Santiano, The Kelly Family und Beyond The Black gearbeitet hat. Das Mastering erfolgte durch den Grammy-prämierten Produzenten Jacob Hansen in den Hansen Studios, der für seine Arbeit mit Bands wie Volbeat und vielen anderen bekannt ist.

Ande Braun über das neue Album:
"Not The End Of The Road ist ein Album, das unsere Erlebnisse als Band seit Ecstasy 2018 exakt beschreibt. In erster Linie stellen wir mit Songs wie „Not The End Of The Road“, „What Goes Up“, „Yoko Ono“ und „Only The Dead“ heraus: Wir haben Bock, wir ziehen an einem Strang und wir wollen in den Rock-Olymp! Titel wie „Coming Home“, „Gone For Good“ und „Scars“ hingegen handeln von echten Gefühlen wie Einsamkeit, Heimweh und Trauer, die auch zum Leben gehören."

Hannes Braun ergänzt:
"Bei Ecstasy sind wir schon keine Kompromisse mehr eingegangen und wollten einfach nur Musik komponieren, die aus uns spricht. Not The End Of The Road knüpft genau hier nahtlos an."
Sichere Dir Dein Exemplar von Not The End Of The Road JETZT!
Mit Not The End Of The Road setzen KISSIN‘ DYNAMITE einen weiteren Meilenstein in ihrer erfolgreichen Diskografie: In gitarrengetriebener Power-Metal-Manier bereitet das Intro und der Titeltrack „Not The End Of The Road“ den Hörer auf einen mitreißenden Roadtrip mit neuen Hymnen direkt aus dem Herzen des KISSIN‘ DYNAMITE-Universums vor. Der Brecher What Goes Up entführt den Hörer in wahrhaft spektakuläre Klangwelten, die Stadien zum Beben bringen und überzeugt mit Aerosmith-ähnlichen Gitarrenattacken und einer hymnischen Hook. Aber KISSIN‘ DYNAMITE scheuen sich auch nicht davor, ihre sanftere Seite zu zeigen, wie man in ruhigen Tracks wie „Good Life“ und „Gone For Good“ hören kann – diese zeigen nicht nur sanfte Melodien, sondern auch die weichere Seite von Brauns Gesangsrepertoire. Während Tracks wie „No One Dies A Virgin“ und „Yoko Ono“ für eingängige Partyhymnen stehen, unterstreichen die Standouts „Coming Home“ und „Defeat It“ ihre Herkunft aus dem Stadionrock, ohne die Band in diese Schublade zu stecken. „Voodoo Spell" manifestiert die Vielseitigkeit der Band und ihre unterschiedlichen Einflüsse - beginnend mit starken Dark-Rock-Elementen, entwickelt sich der Song zu einem Opus, das es locker mit den größten Stadion-Giganten aufnehmen kann. Der Abschluss des Albums, „Scars", beweist einmal mehr, dass KISSIN‘ DYNAMITE in die Tiefe gehen und lyrische Verletzlichkeit zeigen können - ein beeindruckender Abschlusstrack, der danach schreit, live gespielt zu werden.

Not The End Of The Road tracklist:
  1. Not the End of the Road
  2. What Goes Up
  3. Only the Dead
  4. Good Life
  5. Yoko Ono
  6. Coming Home

Auch die mit dem Vorgänger Album begonnene wohltätige Zusammenarbeit mit dem Förderverein für krebskranke Kinder Tübingen e.V., der Wahlheimat der Rocker, wurde fortgesetzt.

Das Album und der Album Titel haben somit eine echte Bedeutung, die die Menschen auf mehreren Ebenen berührt und für jede persönliche Lebenssituation den richtigen Song bereithält.

Danish Melodic Death Metal Quintet LIVLØS Reveals New Single + Video “The Purest Black” | Watch HERE

New Album, And Then There Were None, out October 22 via Napalm Records | Pre-Order HERE

LIVLØS brings melodic death metal to new levels! Danish metal phenomenon LIVLØS have established themselves as an essential new name in the international metal scene, ready to shake up the landscape of modern death metal with their upcoming album, And Then There Were None, out October 22 via Napalm Records. Their brand of Scandinavian melodic death metal – influenced by bands like At The Gates and Carcass, and paired with American-rooted death metal in the vein of Death and The Black Dahlia Murder – has already earned the five-piece appearances at Copenhell, Eurosonic and Spot Festival.

After releasing the title track “And Then There Were None”, LIVLØS now present their second glimpse into the upcoming album with “The Purest Black”. LIVLØS go downtempo and truly evil with stomping drums, heavy guitars and punishing vocals - this song takes the listener through the diverse repertoire of the Danish powerhouse, combining Scandinavian metal influences with American-rooted metal!

Watch the official music video for "The Purest Black" HERE:
 
On their new album, And Then There Were None, LIVLØS are audibly on top of their game: scrupulously ripping through nine tight, hard-lined tracks, the band takes no shortcuts while still maintaining a dynamic songwriting style that keeps listeners on their toes throughout the album’s runtime. Album opener and title track “And Then There Were None” sets the pace with punishing vocals and raging death metal riffs, leading into dramatic choruses and guitar solos that display LIVLØS’ incredibly multi-faceted talent right off the bat. Only very rarely will the band give listeners time to breathe, like on acoustic intermission “Kistefjael” or the slowed-down, stomping “The Purest Black”, which ends the album experience of And Then There Were None in a triumphant, epic manner. Songs like “Seize The Night” are impressive depictions of singer Niklas Lykke’s broad vocal range, reaching from deep and guttural to high-pitched and ear-piercing sections.

Excellently mixed by Jacob Bredahl (ex-Hatesphere) and mastered by Brad Boatright (known for his work with Obituary, Nails and Torche among others), And Then There Were None is an exceptional display of LIVLØS’ confident, modern approach to melodic death metal, meticulously executed from start to finish – revealing more of what it has to offer with every listen. LIVLØS prove that they are here to stay with And Then There Were None!

ALIEN WEAPONRY Reveals Charging New Single "Hatupatu"
& Official Music Video - Watch
HERE!

New Album, Tangaroa, out Today via Napalm Records | Order HERE!
  
On European Tour early 2022 with Gojira & Employed To Serve

New Zealand global metal frontrunners ALIEN WEAPONRY just dropped their highly-anticipated sophomore album, Tangaroa, today via Napalm Records! Tangaroa is a massive next step for the band – encompassing all of the elements that make ALIEN WEAPONRY heavy metal’s most authentic rising stars.

Following their two hard-hitting recent singles "Tangaroa" and "Buried Underground", ALIEN WEAPONRY have revealed a third new standout single, "Hatupatu". Performed entirely in the indigenous language of te reo Māori, the story behind this track is not only legendary in the band's culture – it's about one of the de Jong brothers' ancestors! Journey alongside Hatupatu in the new music video as he escapes the dangerous clutches of the fabled witch of the forest, the evil bird-woman Kurangaituku.

Drummer Henry de Jong says:       
"The story of 'Hatupatu' is one Lewis and I grew up with our father was the first person to tell us as children. Having a family connection with it only made creating a song more intriguing for us. Traditionally, Māori legends were passed down through families by re-telling them, not by having them written down in books. It only makes sense for us to be re-telling this story as our tūpuna (ancestors) did for generations. We cannot wait to share with the rest of the world."

Watch the brand new official music video for “Hatupatu” HERE!
 
ALIEN WEAPONRY are poised to dominate with Tangaroa. The album coalesces the band’s growing maturation with an undisturbed songwriting process, resulting in their most inspired, honest and informed material yet. Tangaroa is immersed in important historical accounts and cultural heritage of the Māori people – in addition to lyrics written in te reo Māori, many tracks feature traditional instruments, called taonga puoro, providing the tracks their own warrior-like attitude. Rhythmic, dynamic album opener “Titokowaru” begins with determined rowing chants and depicts the tale of a famous war chief that challenged the colonial government in New Zealand and led a rebel army, backed by quick riffage and driving drums. Following standout “Hatupatu”, inspired by the harrowing, legendary tale of a de Jong ancestor facing off with a witch, is carried by frenzied guitars, spirited chanting and tribal-like percussion. While ALIEN WEAPONRY sourced inspiration from their culture and environmental surroundings while writing most of Tangaroa, the band also looked inward – drawing vision for other portions of the album from within. The album dives into some of their most effecting personal experiences, with English-language songs like the pensive “Unforgiving”.
Order Tangaroa NOW!
