FLAT EARTH release their new single, a live cover of Nirvana’s ‘School’.
If you’ve listened to their debut album “None For One”, you probably agree that it has its Grunge-inspired moments. So it’s no wonder that FLAT EARTH wanted to add a true classic to their repertoire.
Ville Valo & Agents is former HIM frontman Ville’s new musical project and they have recently released their self-titled debut album.
To the delight of all HIM fans, Ville Valo & Agents treated gig-goers to a chilled out rendition of HIM’s song ‘When Love And Death Embrace’ Live @ Logomo, Turku Finland on the 21.3.2019.
Last year, Vermilia, who released her debut album “Kätkyt”, earned much praise from the media and sparked debate in various forums.
Now, Vermilia has produced another slightly more surprising release: a cover version of “Täällä pohjantähden alla”, originally composed by Petri Laaksonen and written by Turkka Mali. Vermilia’s interpretation of “Täällä pohjantähden alla” has transformed the song in a profound way which could lead one to believe the original work to be a majestic Black Metal composition in its own right.
The cover song was released as a single release on March 1st in both digital and physical editions.

Forest Folk band HEXVESSEL are proud to unveil a brand new music video for the single ‘Changeling’ taken from their fourth studio album “All Tree”, which is released today.You can watch the video for ‘Changeling’ here: https://youtu.be/UsDnnk_qcTs
The song features guest vocals from Neige from Alcest (FR) and prog legend Dirk Chapman from Uriel/Arzachel/Egg/National Health on flute. The video was directed by Vesa Ranta and Aapo Lahtela for Kaira Films.
Mat McNerney from HEXVESSEL says, “The song is about change, be it growing up from childhood to adulthood or hearing the call of a vocation you feel compelled to undertake. Metamorphosis in the knowledge that, in the spirit of Kinky Friedman’s “find what you love and let it kill you,” there may never be a way back. Irreversible transformation. I think that’s kind of my interpretation of Metsänpeitto (which literally means “covered by the forest”), the Finnish folklore phenomenon, where people went missing in the forest for unexplained reasons. Once the call of the forest gets in your blood, you never truly belong to the man-made world again, and you’re never coming back. Eventually the forest draws you back home. This same myth, in various forms, also exists in Irish folklore with “changeling children” for example, who were switched by the fairies in infancy. The mythology of my upbringing, and of the country I have settled in, converging together into our “wyrd-folk” story. We are also especially honoured to have our dear brother Neige from Alcest on guest vocals and Dirk Chapman on flute for this song.”
While the North American release of “All Tree” will be on 22 February via Prophecy Productions, the album is out as of today in the rest of the world via Century Media Records.

Midnight Bullet will release their third studio album ‘Into the Fire’ on May 3rd 2019. Band combines heavy and punk music with tight riffs and catchy melodies. Album will be released via Inverse Records, mixing and mastering is made by Juuso Turkki (Ambiwave Audio Productions, The Hypothesis).
Into the Fire cover art represents the “bad” black ball which is inside in all of us. This black ball can be depression, insecurity, fear etc. and how those feelings are sometimes stronger and sometimes weaker. All the songs are telling these stories in different angles.
