Fight To The Death By Paul Maged Gives Us What It Means To Rock

24 Jun

Fight To The Death by Paul Maged starts out by revving with the anthem of rock and roll. The sound of electric guitar and drums that do not sound below advanced musicianship channel the rock vibes through and through. With lyrics such as “out of the darkness and into the fire” fueling those who listen to Paul Maged are just the start. The fundamental greatness of classic rock is often overlooked and lost in 2019, but this album will restore your faith almost instantly. Fight To The Death is the last of Maged’s albums, culminating the trilogy of work following the albums of Light Years Away and The Glass River. Although his music is so good it should be placed in a category of greatness by itself, one can put the rock vibes of this band alongside Red Hot Chili Peppers, Guns N Roses, and The Eagles.

The Soul Numbers Album By Seneko Brings A Mix Of 60s Motown Into 2019

24 Jun

Upon listening to The Soul Numbers by Seneko, you will find yourself thinking of music of 60s motown and funk. Heavy bass and drum snares alongside the vocal talents of Stan Olshefski will have listeners drawn in even more while listening to the vibe of the songs. The songs exemplify excellent storytelling at its best as well, with Callin’ Of The Cause being a standout favorite on the newest release. With lyrics like “cell phone down the sewer, new rules to learn”, he comments not only on society in a satirical manner, but also a reminder to go back to the basics and lose yourself. Seneko characterizes their music in unique ways on the album with sounds implemented in their music arrangement such as clapping, drawn out vocals, and a varied mixture of light drum beats mixed with heavy drum beats in rock music. Whether tuning up Seneko’s music for a ride along a road trip or ready to blare at a feel good party, their style and sound not only yield good feelings, but makes you think about their music after you have stopped listening.

15 Jun

Legends In Their Own Minds by The Sundogs upon first listening brings up to surface the feeling of summers of the 90s. With the light guitar, both acoustic and electric setting up the instrumental structure on songs within the album, its clear that their sound is set to a certain mood paired up in the collection of songs. Although this is just their second album, it sounds like an evolved sound that has spanned over many years. Johnny is a song that sets the scene quite well and alludes to the talented writing of The Sundogs from beginning to end. Lyrics such as “you have seriously been misled, what got you so bent, got a fire in your belly” all are thematic of strong visual storytelling. Closing your eyes and jamming out with your air guitar will allow you to channel all the feels of The Sundogs wherever you are. Touching on the sounds of jazz, blues, and power guitar solos, the duo of Stan Snow and Jed Moffitt unite for musical force to be reckoned with in the name of rock.

Thru The Vines By Jane In Space Gives You The Electro-Synth Track You’ve Been Waiting For

15 Jun

Thru The Vines By Jane In Space gives you all the electro-synth you could ever want from a band. With the mix of grunge and the electro-synths of guitars and reverbs, with a dash of a dinging triangle, this band creates their own musical atmosphere. Their sound is textured, and carries the elements of classic rock and heavy metal. When thinking of bands that have a similar sound, one will think of Mastodon, Aerosmith, and Kiss. Lyrics from their video touch on the grunge tones of heavy metal with dashes of melancholy greatness. Leading the way on bands that use the industrial sound in their music tones and moods, Jane in Space continues to pave their own way in a genre that is dominated by the greats like Nine Inch Nails and Ministry.

Riptide Channels New Wave Mood From Erich Mrak In Latest Single

8 Jun

Marking the 4th studio release of a 7 month studio campaign, Riptide is continuing the trend of an ongoing collection of songs that convey heavy emotions, stories, and the path of a great musician. Delving straight into the song to talk about the journey that a relationship goes through when you’ve done all you can do and love is fading. Erich crafts the story beautifully and compares it to a riptide, mixed with part of the narrative head space that one goes through in this hardship. While everyone’s journey with heartbreak is different, Mrak excels with connecting the emotion and heart in his latest release. Not only is it fascinating that he is releasing these songs over a calculated period of time, it makes sense. To myself as the listener, I want to get snippets of the journey that he has created for us to listen, session by session. Erich Mrak, you are challenging what musicians face as the control of music and the release of something you create is all in your hands.
