22 release new single 'Chroma Key'

22 release new single 'Chroma Key'

You Are Creating released 23rd November via Long Branch Records


Norwegian Progressive Rock Band 22 released their new single 'Chroma Key'. It's the second song taken from the double album You Are Creating, which will be released on 23rd November via Long Branch Records and Indie Recordings (Nordics).
Watch the video for 'Chroma Key' here:

Guitarist Magnus Børmark about "Chroma Key":

'Chroma Key is a song about our physical reality being in a reciprocal reflecting relationship with our inner world. Where to start if you want to make a change? It is lyrically somewhat inspired by Michael Jackson's "Man in the mirror", though our song encourages crushing the looking glass, and see what happens then. I also thought of this song as a good song to drive to, and the guitar riff was based on some tom-pattern that andreas (the drummer) made. The title of the song alludes to a rainbow, and how all the colours combined can unlock something bigger than the individual parts. Since light is basically sound at a much higher frequency, we have used specific colours for the respective instruments in "22", so as to visually match what is going on aurally.

Our colour indexing, or chroma key if you like, - has been like this:
Bass = Red = Root, Earth 
Guitar = Green = Heart, Hub
Voice = Blue = Throat, Expression
Drums = Purple = Kosmos, Beat of the universe'

You Are Creating is an assertion made by 22 that the listener is the one creating the effects of the music they are hearing. Pitch and rhythm in different arrangements (songs) are just tools provided by the artist, which the listener utilises and thus creates the experience of music. 

The band claims that it is not the artist’s stories and emotions that is “given” to the listener. The listener uses music actively to explore their own emotional, mental and spiritual realms. Therefore, music is able to create experiences on such an intimate and personal level, having millions of different people from different cultures thinking: “they are singing about my life!” or “that’s exactly how i feel” in response to hearing the exact same recording of the exact song. Consciously or not, humans use music to explore their own life, world and being.

Every song on You Are Creating is made with the above-mentioned mechanism as an all-permeating creative principle.

THE END OF THE OCEAN premiere new single 'desire' and announce new record -aire

THE END OF THE OCEAN premiere new single 'desire' and announce new record -aire

-aire to be released on January 18th, 2019


Columbus, Ohio based post-rock band, THE END OF THE OCEAN, shared their newest sprawling single, 'desire', yesterday via a premiere with Revolver Magazine. 'desire' follows the band’s highly anticipated return to releasing new music with 'bravado' earlier this month. Both tracks will be featured on their upcoming sophomore album, -aire, which will be their first album since 2012.

Check out 'desire' here:

And pre-order -aire here:

Produced by Mike Watts (The Dillinger Escape Plan, Glassjaw), -aire will be released by Rude Records / Equal Vision Records on and is now available for pre-order

Speaking on the track the band says:

'Desire is a sprawling landscape of multiple meanings. It is a motivator for action, it attaches meaning where there may not have been any before, and at it’s worst it is the impetus for intense personal torture, a deep ache of longing. With "desire", we set out to showcase all interpretations of the word but leave room for the listener's own reflection.'

This is the first new material since the band's highly praised 2011 debut, Pacific-Atlantic. With so much going on in their personal lives, Tara Mayer (keys) says that THE END OF THE OCEAN needed to “give ourselves a chance to hurt so that we could have the chance to heal” before even thinking about another release. The past few years have forced the band to come to terms with their own humanity and mortality, as well as that of their bandmates and friends. Now finally in a place to focus on new music, THE END OF THE OCEAN are back and stronger than ever.

Their new music balances rich, thoughtful melodic passages, high-energy riff-wielding and truly epic climatic outpourings. Championed for their maelstrom of nostalgia, hope, beauty, melancholy, chaos and tranquillity, THE END OF THE OCEAN are bigger, bolder and ready to return.

Formed in Brighton in 2015 by three musicians who set out to write music without boundaries, TOSKA have been making huge waves in progressive and muso circles since their inception. Together they bring an impressive range of skill, experience and knowledge to create music that’s both intellectually stimulating, but also highly accessible.

Taking influence from a huge span of music including Karnivool, SikTh, Hans Zimmer, Thomas Newmann and Gustav HolstTOSKA use vast dynamics and obscure chord voicing to convey a very emotional and cinematic tonality. It’s almost impossible to pin a genre tag on them, but words such as prog, metal, post-rock and math-rock could be used to describe their sonic elements.

The success of 2016's EP Ode To The Author launched the band onto the live circuit earning them tours in the UK & Europe with the likes of Black Peaks and Arcane Roots and slots at ArcTanGent and UK Tech Fest. The band are now ready to step their game up another notch with debut album Fire By The Silos, a concept album with many twists, turns; a stunning musical journey packed with depth and colour, with a slightly sinister undertone.

The band explain: “Fire By The Silos is a concept album. An idea grown from social observation; looking at humans, aspects of the world, and the direction we’re going in. It’s set in the near future and focuses specifically on a person affected by great political and economic change, forced to lose everything. Fire By The Silos attempts to describe the psychological and emotional torment that takes”.

The members of TOSKA have a strong presence in the music scene in their own right and have amassed huge YouTube followings. Combining their collective fanbases, guitarist Rabea Massaad (192k subscribers), drummer Ben Minal (32K subscribers), drummer Dave Hollingworth (13K subscribers), plus the many fans they’ve picked up on  the road, TOSKA are rapidly becoming the UK’s most talked about instrumental act.

Brand new alt-rockers DEAD REYNOLDS release debut video/single 'Dust'

Brand new alt-rockers DEAD REYNOLDS release debut video/single 'Dust'

Dead Reynolds Resize .jpg

Alt-rock five-piece DEAD REYNOLDS release the video for their debut single 'Dust'. This new project brings together former members of Phoenix Calling and The First, who have previously gained support from Kerrang! Magazine, Kerrang! Radio and Rock Sound.

Premiered by Johnny Doom on Kerrang! Radio, check out 'Dust' here:

Purchase 'Dust' here:

Stream 'Dust' here:

With hints of Lonely The Brave and Deaf Havana, 'Dust' is a powerful introduction that sees the members of DEAD REYNOLDS combine the strengths from their previous projects, delivering heartfelt and striking alt-rock. 

Guitarist/vocalist Dominic Greenwood says of the single:

“‘Dust’ is about one person’s struggle with the feeling that the world is against them but knowing who they can depend on when the chips are down, having doors closed in their face and going back to the place where they feel like they belong, but still don’t really fit. Ultimately everything turns to ‘Dust’, so the song is about a journey and the feeling that we all just fly. There are references to the disbelief in religion after the loss of someone. I think this will be a firm favourite live.”

The band will tour the UK next month in support of the new single, dates are as follows: 

16.11.2018 - Peterborough, The Met Lounge (w/ Tom Lumley)
17.11.2018 - King's Lynn, The Maltings  (w/ Tom Lumley)
18.11.2018 - Ipswich, The Smokehouse  (w/ Tom Lumley)

Dutch metallers FOR I AM KING drop new track 'Home' via Metal Injection

Dutch metallers FOR I AM KING drop new track 'Home' via Metal Injection

New album I due 7 December 2018 via Redfield Records

For I Am King Press.jpg

Amsterdam metal quintet FOR I AM KING have premiered their new track 'Home', taken from new album I, set for release on 7th December via Redfield Records.

Premiered via Metal Injectioncheck it out here:

'Home' focuses on vocalist Alma Alizadeh's experience of fleeing Iran as a child to the Netherlands at 11 years old. She told Metal Injection:

"People often forget that you can feel at home anywhere. This song is about our personal journeys in finding home: how to adapt to make yourself at home, and how we should take care of others that are in search of a home."

'Home' will be available to purchase and stream via all digital outlets from Friday 2nd November. 

Pre-order I here:

I is 10 tracks of ferocious modern metal where chaos and aggression are equalled with precision and finesse. The album introduces the concept of the ‘I-factor’, a 3.0 variant of the much sought-after X-factor. I is the ninth letter of the modern Latin alphabet, it has importance in the fields of mathematics and chemistry, I is the symbol for electric current and is an abbreviation for international. For FOR I AM KING, the ‘I-factor’ lies in the combination of the musical components: modern, complex, furious but catchy metal with infectious melodies and uniquely aggressive vocals.

FOR I AM KING will be touring relentlessly through 2019, dates to be announced soon.
