Finland’s Santa Cruz announce third album & UK tour


Finland’s SANTA CRUZ Announce New Album BAD BLOOD RISING due 10th November on M-Theory Audio 

Band Announce December UK Headline Tour

Praised by Rolling Stone magazine as “One of the Top 10 bands you need to know in 2017” for their “debaucherous, flamboyant flair,” Santa Cruz is a Finnish modern hard rock band formed with the mutual aspiration of playing their rear ends off and grabbing your attention. Inspired initially by the likes of Motley Crue and Guns N’ Roses, the young group developed a strong buzz through stupefying live shows and two well-received albums on Spinefarm Records where they took their throwback hard rock sound and combined it with elements of modern rock, punk and metal, put it in their own special blender, then iced the mix with blinding energetic performances and a healthy dash of attitude.

Now partnered with new label M-Theory Audio, Santa Cruz are set to release their third studio album Bad Blood Rising on 10th November, which showcases a transition to a more modern, and slicker hard rock sound. Pre-order now on CD, limited-edition coloured vinyl and digital outlets at www.m-theoryaudio.com/store

“We are really excited to start working with M-Theory Audio, and be part of a new label and new team!” explains Santa Cruz singer Archie.

Shooting Guns album ‘Flavour Country’ streaming in full


 

unnamed (20)

Canada’s award-nominated psych 6-piece Shooting Guns stream their new album ‘Flavour Country’ today via Bandcamp and YouTube

Shooting Guns is known (and oft-nominated) for their film soundtrack work, but Flavour Country is more like a collection of anthems for your jettison from this universe into the multiverse.
While they’re known for heavy and saturated sounds befitting crazed horror-comedy flicks like Netflix hit WolfCopFlavour Country features some of the band’s fastest, heaviest and most visceral material to date. Yet, it also features some of the band’s most atmospheric sounds as well.

At times there are slight hints of Ennio Morricone‘s Spaghetti Western twang amidst the looping Meddle-era Pink Floyd heavy psych and driving drone reminiscent of Bobby Beausoleil‘s belladonna laced soundtrack to Kenneth Anger‘s Lucifer Rising. But for the most part here, Shooting Guns is out for blood, regardless of tempo.

Album opener “Ride Free” kicks off with a blistering wall of guitars blaring and rattling out of the gate like mutant progeny to fellow Canadian biker-rock heroes Steppenwolf having duly fired all of the guns, exploded into space and returned to hunt down every last one of us. It accelerates from there: “French Safe” sounds like an unhinged battalion of musicians driving full throttle like a scene from a George MillerRoad Warrior movie. Biting, lengthier tracks like “Simian Shelf” and the title track occupy the heavy end of the psychedelic spectrum, haunting the foggy moor between early, bluesy Sabbath-styled doom riffery and heavy pulse-riding kraut-rock.

SLUDGEHAMMER Unleash Video ‘Demons From The Woodwork’


Toronto’s SLUDGEHAMMER have unleashed their new video for ‘Demons From The Woodwork’, one of 11 tracks on their debut album ‘The Fallen Sun’ released during June of last year.  The video is a band playthrough demonstrating their mind bending guitar solos, devastating heavy riffs, blistering drum fury and dynamic vocal performances from lead vocalist Chris Szarota plus bassist Dan Ayers.

Plus their previous video ‘Carrion Eater’ can be viewed at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OAbgAUBrzvo

Their latest album ‘The Fallen Sun’ is the follow up their 2014 EP ‘Organ Harvester’ and was self-produced by the band plus mixed by guitarist Tyler Williams along with mastering done by world renowned producer & engineer Lasse Lammert (Gloryhammer, Alestorm, Teramaze) at LSD Studio in Germany.
