Variety is the spice of life they say. Probably because much like a curry plenty of variety will leave you with a big smile, a red face, streaming eyes and a runny nose; but all in a good way except maybe that last one. With this in mind I hope your ears enjoy a good musical curry because Melic certainly give you plenty of sound spices. Melic, on Beatnik Geek Records, are here with their debut album An Hour to Anywhere.
Circle of Rage have released the video to their latest track Fear Does Not Exist In This Dojo. Produced by Kent based OYFE Productions the video is set in a dark and smoke filled room. The video suits the track perfectly as the dark and confined environment hosts foreboding drumming and an opening riff that sounds like it’s climbed out of hell.
Professionally shot and edited Fear Does Not Exist In This Dojo captures the live spirit of Circle of Rage and the aggression of the track. There’s even a TV that gets smashed. Watch Circle of Rage live on the 28th March at Canterbury’s Beer Cart Arms. Scroll down for links.
Lurking in deepest and darkest south east Kent there is a band. Built on dark tones and big riffs, Stone Kings have played many an energetic and packed out show. Currently planning the pressing of their latest E.P, we thought we’d whet your appetite with this little and importantly free gem from Stone Kings’ music library.
Certified by Megadeath’s David Ellefson.
Armageddon is four minutes and twenty six seconds of dark intensity. Carried by strong drums, guitars and vocals join forces to create an unrelenting and seething track. As Armageddon warns that ‘this world has got it coming /now its come around’ you’ll be forgiven for feeling more enjoyment than fear. Even as Stone Kings talk about the destruction of planet it’s over shadowed by a decidedly ear tingling break down and big riff. Armageddon is a big slice of hard rock/stoner metal which point towards great things from Stone Kings’ new E.P.
