Bora Biçer’in akustik düzenlediği şarkılara Ulaş Tercan’ın çello ve bas tecrübesiyle ve Gerçek Dorman’ın davul ve perküsyon setiyle eşlik etmesi, yeni bir tarzın oluşmasını sağlamıştır. Enstrüman zenginliği bakımından eşine az rastlanır bir trio olan Büyük Birader, hem elektrik hem akustik setle farklı bir enerji yakalamaktadır. Grubun tarzı genel olarak rock tınlasa da içinde yer yer funk, blues ve country tarzlarından da esintiler hissedilmektedir.

Can you give a little biographical and historical info; who is involved in the band, and how did you guys meet up?
The Madcap, the first female fronted glam metal band from Turkey just released their first single and music video Rock ‘n’ Roll Revolution. The band members, who grew up listening to the Hard Rock and Glam Metal of the 80s, wrote this song to express their struggle in the current music scene. The song was written and composed by the band’s guitarist Deniz Sayman. The music video directed by Ahmet Yılmazer was shot in a big stage, using blacklights and UV dyes.
The Madcap are Izgi Gültekin on vocals, Deniz Sayman and Emre Sarıgün on guitars, Erman Erkılınç on bass guitars and Faruk Şenel on drums.
Üyelerinin her biri benim için ayrı kıymetli, TV8’de yayınlanan Rising Star müzik yarışmasının yarı finalisti, Türkiye’nin kadın vokalli ilk Glam grubu The Madcap’in ilk single’ı Rock ‘n’ Roll Revolution 22 Şubat’ta yayınlanacak.
Şarkı, 80’li yılların Hard Rock / Glam Metal müziğiyle büyüyen grup elemanlarının, tekrar bu müziğin üretildiği, konserlerin verildiği bir müzik dünyası için verdikleri savaşı, bu yolda önlerine çıkan engelleri ve bu müziğin tekrar popüler olamayacağı, bu yüzden de herkesin yaptığı tarzlara yönelmeleri gerektiğini söyleyenleri umursamadıklarını ve hayatları boyunca müziklerine sadık kalacaklarını, kısaca The Madcap’in Rock ‘n’ Roll Devrimi’ni anlatıyor.
Söz ve müziği grubun gitaristi Deniz Sayman’a ait olan şarkının klibi Ahmet Yılmazer yönetmenliğinde, büyük bir sahne, blacklight ışık ve neon boyalar kullanılarak çekildi.
“She gave me head on the bed of my dead grandmamma”.
Kiwi exile in Istanbul Ware’s third album in twelve years takes his furious, frustrated, reflections and infuses them with atmosphere, echo and splashes of welcome barminess.
The concept of mellowing as you get older mercifully flies by Ware as his postmodern seethe snarls through even the gentler tracks on all of his releases. His ire knows the importance of a tune to keep the pill wrapped in though, and Nothing, The Knife and No Honey here certainly are resplendent in them.
Can you give a little biographical and historical info; who is involved in the band, and how did you guys meet up? How the journey started?
The project was born in Croatia, formed by Damir Marijan Maras, Jurica Baljak and Sinisa Antunovic Medo. They were combining the basic of thrash metal and musical influences of different sub-styles, mostly symphonic and power metal. It became seriously when Ivana Anic Lara decided to join them.
It was very obvious from the start, the songs were created with complex arrangements, so the first lineup with Tomislav Oliver (keyboards) and Luka Putica (bass) could not keep up the pace, so when have arrived the last two members; Jurica Bazant and Juraj Birin the project had become the band. Now consisting of six very talented musicians; from academically educated musicians to musicians with many years of experience performing and recording. Members of the band are; Damir Marijan Maras (rhythm-guitar), Siniša Antunović-Medo (bass), Jurica Baljak (drums), Juraj Birin (solo guitar), Jurica Bažant (keyboards) and Ivana Anic-Lara (vocal).
What your genre means to you, or why you chose this genre basically?
Angelseed is hard to squeeze in only one genre. Most of the people sort our music to symphonic power metal genre, but if you listen album carefully you’ll see that you can put us in at least 4-5 more genres, such as thrash metal, gothic, traditional metal , we even have folk metal influences and parts of the songs with classical music elements. As all band members come from diffrent music backgrounds it is normal that we implement diffrent music styles and genres on this album and every note we play means a lot to all of us.
How did the initial musical and thematic elements evolve?
Process of creating this album was pretty long and through all that time all songs evolved much from their original sounding. We work on every part of each song very carefully and try to avoid some traditional arrangements. So every song was built at the same way as builders build the house, and at the same way our songs evolved from the foundation to the interior design.
Only a few days left until one of the biggest and most ambitious events in the world of progressive music this year — or maybe even this decade, for that matter — will take place at Rotterdam, Netherlands.

Artificial Lift is a 3 piece energetic rock band situated in Lloydminster, SK. They began playing together in 2013 as a jam band under the moniker: Biggs Hosan. They are a mix of Progressive Rock, Blues, Metal. The 5-track “Ominous EP” was released in 2014 and takes listeners into a sound-scape consisting of huge rock guitars, pulsating rhythm sections, and lyrics forged from experiences of living in the Canadian Mid-West. On July 16th the band released their full-length debut album Wasted Days.Bio: The band consists of three members. Deric Sheppard holds the rhythm down on drums and vocals, Trent Paterson sets the vibe on the bass guitar, and I keep it rockin’ on guitar and vocals. We have known each other for years, each playing in our own separate projects — none of them materialized much success, however. Sheppard was the drummer for Harridan, Paterson was the drummer for Ascesis and I played bass for Ascesis as well as guitar for Climhazzard. All of our previous bands had a common jam space in an old upstairs office in down town Lloydminster called ‘The Loft’. After some time apart from our respective bands we started jamming together, each switching between instruments, and eventually formed what is now Artificial Lift.
