MIDNATTSOL Unveil First Details Of Upcoming Album with Liv Kristine


In December 2017, it was announced that Liv Kristine joined MIDNATTSOL as their official second singer – right next to her very talented sister Carmen Elise Espenæs

The name „Espenæs“ rightfully makes people swoon: Liv Kristine and Carmen Elise were a vital part of a magnitude of gothic / symphonic / folk metal milestones – but so far a supergroup involving both sisters sharing microphone duties was only the stuff dreams were made of. This truly is full sister power!
Now the band has unveiled the first details of their upcoming album entitled “The Aftermath”.  This includes the first teaser, release date, album artwork, track listing and available formats!
“The Aftermath” relies much more heavily on folk influences lending atmospheric density to the melancholic symphonic metal compositions. It is a sumptuous and sensual affair and a shimmering highlight in the discography of this German / Norwegian team!
Carmen states:
“Today is the day!! Many of you have asked where to get our new CD. Go to this link and be the first to order ‘The Aftermath’. Thank you for the overwhelming support!!”

KOBRA AND THE LOTUS Unveil Album Details for ‘PREVAIL II’!


KOBRA AND THE LOTUS kept their word and will soon deliver the second part of their opus magnum one year after the successful release of rock juggernaut Prevail I!
Prevail II is the proverbial yang to the yin and continues right where KOBRA AND THE LOTUS left off in 2017. Set for a release on April 27th 2018 with Napalm Records, the band has now unveiled the cover artwork and track listing for their hotly anticipated Prevail II!

Says vocalist Kobra Paige: “Humanity. One of the greatest struggles of our human existence is to retain it. This sequel album takes a deeper dive into the darkness of our psyche and explores the personal torment and struggle we inflict upon ourselves, one another, and the earth. It has become common place for people to give up on themselves and lose their belief in their abilities and self-worth. This in turn affects our daily actions/behaviour. We are a cripplingly, self-harming species BUT we are also profoundly capable beings of altruism, evolution, and positivity. This album will close the ‘Prevail’ double sequel on the lightest of all notes by acknowledging that every single person has a desire to be and deserves to be truly seen, loved, and heard. When the ignorance is cleared, we can recognize that we are all in this together.”

Groundbreaking art-rock performer, author and spoken word artist OTEP is thrilled to divulge new, behind-the-scenes information about her upcoming, currently untitled, full-length album. The album – her eighth overall and second with Napalm Records – is scheduled to hit stores later this year. OTEP and her band are currently recording at The Lair in Los Angeles, completely utilizing the same equipment used on their first album, Sevas Tra (down to her original vocal microphone, a SHURE Beta 58), in order to create a sound reminiscent of their roots. The Lair is also where OTEP recorded Smash The Control Machine, the band’s fourth release.

OTEP says this upcoming eighth album is undoubtedly the band’s most authentic and honest. “I’m co-producing this album with my guitarist Aristotle, which has allowed us to create without limitations. The musicality is stellar and has been elevated to a whole new stratosphere of sound. With Aristotle on guitar, Justin Kier on drums and Drew Barnes on bass, each musician has a powerful voice on this album.”
