Discovering New Music. Case Study: Cave In


Those in the know would agree…

Discovering new music is simply amazing. If it’s something you emotionally connect with you find yourself in a perfect rapture… in an intense state of happiness… an unusual sense of euphoria… it is like you get carried away by this overwhelming emotion!

Until 6th grade, my music knowledge was limited to what I got exposed at home. It wasn’t bad, though, as my lovely mum and brother were music nerds themselves. At 7th grade, I started to dig through boxes at the local record store and asked the owner, the wise old man, to recommend me some music… He would ask me what I liked the most and play me something he would consider to be similar… He introduced me to a lot new music that year. You see I had my own streaming service algorithm going back then 😀

Delain, Amorphis, Anneke van Giersbergen – The Palladium, Worcester, MA 9/21/19


It was an unseasonably warm autumn day as the tour package of Anneke van Giersbergen, Amorphis, and headliners Delain rolled into Worcester, Massachusetts on their 2019 Fall tour. A week prior, I had just returned from The Netherlands, where I was lucky enough to witness Ayreon’s performance of Into The Electric Castle and Other Tales, so I hadn’t quite come down from that high yet and I was looking forward to getting another opportunity to see the always amazing Anneke perform live, as well as te mighty Amorphis, and of course, Delain.

ENTERPRISE EARTH release ‘Sleep Is For The Dead’ music video

ENTERPRISE EARTH release ‘Sleep Is For The Dead’ music video


Spokane, USA metal band ENTERPRISE EARTH have released a another music video for a new track called ‘Sleep Is For The Dead’ today.

“‘Sleep Is For The Dead’ is about digging deep inside myself when the world turns it’s back on me,” says vocalist Dan Watson“It’s about peeling off the exterior shell that our society plastered on the outside and awakening the true inner version of myself rather than suppress it to fit into the cookie cutter mould that society tries to pressure us to fit into. I would rather be awake and face the pain than be asleep and suppress it.”

Last month the band announced a series of 2019 tour dates. The first stint will be a headline run with AETHERE supporting. Those dates kick off in Victoria, BC on March 12, 2019. The second leg will be alongside LORNA SHORE starting in Providence, RI on March 29, 2019.

“We are very excited to embark on our first headlining and co-headlining tours in support of our new album,” says Watson. “This marks the start of a new era for the band and we cannot wait to unleash our best work to our fans. See you soon in the USA and Canada.”

UK Dates are planned for mid 2019.

ENTERPRISE EARTH was founded in 2014 by ex-Infant Annihilator vocalist Dan Watson and ex-Takeover guitarist BJ Sampson. Taking their name from a confluence of Illuminati and other conspiracy theories, the band released their debut EP titled XXIII and a full length, Patient Ø, in 2015. Patient Ø featured Oceano vocalist Adam Warren and debuted at number five on Billboard’s Heatseekers/Top New Artist Chart. Last year the band released Embodiment, their second LP and have since shared the stage with Chelsea Grin, Whitechapel, and Winds of Plague with a highlighted appearance on the 2016 Summer Slaughter Tour.

Pre-order Luciferous now HERE.

Threshold – Legends of the Shires: A Life Retrospective

Threshold – Legends of the Shires: A Life Retrospective


AUTHOR’S NOTE:
This is a largely autobiographical story about me and a real person, with real dates, though some events have been slightly altered or interpreted from the album itself for creative license, and names omitted out of great respect for the person involved.

This is the story of my life before, with, and after the person that I met as a result of this very album, that predicted every one of those things would happen, and yet ultimately predicted that pain would end and this new journey I am about to embark upon would come from it. It is written as a message of thanks to everyone who has supported me during the worst times of my life, to bring me to the greatest moment of my life, and a message of hope that no matter how far you’ve fallen and how much you’ve lost, there is always a new tomorrow.

Soundwaves in Retrospect: 15th anniversary of Nightwish’s Once

Soundwaves in Retrospect: 15th anniversary of Nightwish’s Once


So the year was 2004 and Nightwish released what it would become Tarja Turunen’s swansong, Once. Things had gone bad since 2000 when the band started their first South American tour. The producer of the tour was an argentinian guy called Marcelo Cabulli whom  Tarja met, get along and quickly they  became a couple. Marcelo not only became Tarja’s boyfriend but also he became her manager for things related Nightwish and for her rising solo career so this new management generated a conlifct between Tarja and the rest of the guys. Nightwish was now a two part band with Tarja and Marcelo on one side and Marco, Emppu, Jukka, and Tuomas on the other side. So in the middle of this conflicted situation the recordings of the fifth Nightwish album started. The band had  been in a clear state of ascension but so far the long awaited success on North American shores was still not a reality; maybe this album and one specific song would be the one that finally opened the door to a whole new market and fanbase. This would be  the second album of the new lineup , Marco had been added to the band 2 years back and this provoked a significant change in the sound of the band by adding a male vocalist. The chance to rise even more was there and so Tuomas gave almost everything in order to achieve this goal. It is clear that he is not one of the best keyboard players in the world but what he is is an awesome composer/writer and Once contained probably his best work up to date.
