Dublin’s finest new rock/metal quintet JET FUEL CHEMISTRY have streamed their video for new single 'War', taken from their forthcoming EP Sign of the Times, released on 7th August.

Watch the video, premiered on Distorted Sound, here:

And pre-save the single here:

Elements of I Prevail, Nothing More, While She Sleeps and modern Bring Me The Horizon come together to create an EP far more than the sum of its parts. Opener ‘War’ is an absolute lungburster of a track and at no point throughout the five-track salvo do JET FUEL CHEMISTRY let up.

An impressive collection of songs from such a young band, JET FUEL CHEMISTRY first came together three years ago. The entirety of the band’s EP was recorded, mixed, and mastered in guitarist / producer Danny’s bedroom, for a grand total of £0.

A scintillating mix of anthemic alternative rock and modern metalcore mark this new group as ones to truly take attention of.

The sounds of Dublin are fully embedded in Sign of the Times. As bassist Lorcan states:
"Dublin is a city notorious for phenomenal indie music and there's a lot of positives to that, but what's overlooked by that movement is the misery endured by Dublin's young people for the last decade as more and more of their lives and identities shift to social media. We love the music coming out of our city but most of it does not capture the spirit of dread and aimlessness that's become the norm here. We want our songs to not only acknowledge these issues, but to give a two fingered salute to the enablers of our collective unhappiness and offer a source of strength to anybody feeling as lost as we do."

Such a thoughtful, considered approach is typical of JET FUEL CHEMISTRY and a true acknowledgement of their calibre, carried throughout the five songs. The EP’s eponymous track satirises our modern culture of self-worship, with the cry ‘it’s just a sign of the times’ signalling the forfeit of redemption in favour of nihilism. The track opens with a Greta Thunberg quote that perfectly encapsulates how self-involved we have become: a young woman speaking at the UN, begging them to take responsibility, and yet she becomes the target of abuse.

Who cares about public approval when you have integrity?

The spotlight on JET FUEL CHEMISTRY has grown steadily brighter following a whirlwind of live shows across Ireland, more than holding their own as support to a string of powerhouse US rock bands from Halestorm to Hundredth.

Desert groove rockers PATRÓN have released new single/video 'Jump In The Fire', featuring Barrett Martin on drums, Alain Johannes on bass and guitar, and Aurélien Barbolosi on guitar.

Premiered via Visions magazine, watch 'Jump In The Fire' here:

'Jump In The Fire' is the fourth single taken from their debut self-titled album, Patrón, out now via Klonosphere.

PATRÓN is a new project fronted by Lo (aka Patrón) frontman of the band Loading Data. The self-titled debut album was produced by Alain Johannes (Queens of the Stone Age, Eleven, Them Crooked Vultures, Chris Cornell Band) and also happens to be the last album ever recorded in his legendary studio 11AD, in Los Angeles.  

Lo had some well known friends record the album with him: Joey Castillo (Danzig, Queens of the Stone Age, The Bronx), Barrett Martin (Mad Season, Screaming Trees, Tuatara), Nick Oliveri (Kyuss, Queens of the Stone Age, Mondo Generator), Aurélien Barbolosi (Aston Villa) and Monique St Walker (Blackbird Days).

PATRÓN is a melting pot of influences, a new entity, a sort of Frankenstein creature, borrowing as much from stoner rock, 50s rock n roll, the Rat Pack as from 80s pop. It's sexy, it’s groovy, it’s loud and heavy. Heady melodies that will stick to your skin like a thirsty alcoholic tick.

PATRÓN are: 
Lo aka Patrón : Lead Vocal / Guitar / Keyboard
Joey Castillo : Drums
Nick Oliveri : Bass
Aurélien Barbolosi : Guitars
Alain Johannes : Bass, Guitar, Keyboard, Vocal
Barrett Martin : Drums
Monique St Walker : Vocals
Aurelia : Vocals

German metalcore quintet RISING INSANE have released a metal cover of Michael Sembello's Flashdance hit 'Maniac'. The track is out now on all digital platforms and follows the band's album Porcelain, which was released last year via Long Branch Records. 

Check out the video for 'Maniac' here:

Stream/purchase 'Maniac' here:

RISING INSANE deliver music in a dualistic manner: post-hardcore inspired rage is coupled with melancholic overtones, creating a sound that is irresistible to fans of melodic and aggressive modern metal.

A band with hardworking DIY roots, RISING INSANE released debut album Nation in June 2017 which quickly earned them shows with the likes of The Devil Wears Prada, For Today, Stray from the Path and more. The DIY struggle further inspired the band and fuelled their determination, which paid off with them earning a German and Austrian tour with Annisokay at the end of 2018 and a slot at Impericon Festival 2019.

Strengthened by the energy of this ride, they produced and recorded their second album, Porcelain, which was released on 1st November 2019 via Long Branch Records. Still inspired by self initiative and DIY work ethic, Porcelain is the most honest, inspiring and haunting music RISING INSANE have ever written.

FORE; punk band featuring ex-KREATOR bassist and VENOM INC, MASSACRE members release two new songs!

FORE, the punk band featuring ChristianSpeesyGiesler (ex-KREATOR)Jeramie Kling (VENOM INC, MASSACRE, THE ABSENCE), Taylor Nordberg (MASSACRE, THE ABSENCE) and Brian Stephenson (OLD JAMES, SKULL FIST), have released two new songs, “Song For A Friend” and “Pet” on the band’s Bandcamp page.


The group previously released their debut songs “What’s Right For You” and “Today We Rise (No Tomorrow)” last month to a positive and response. 


Regarding the first stages of the band’s existence and the response so far, Stephenson said: “So inevitably stoked to be on board with such fine gentlemen on a project I’d never have imagined could have come to fruition. A real punk rock group with heavy metals A-team. DIY, in your face. More than a band. A movement. Stoked is not even close to how this feels for me. Surrounded by legends, and to be a part of something so special is truly and uniquely a gift. The riffs and playing on these songs are in a league of their own. Only something the finest craftsmen in their respective fields could create and to put my voice to it is a high honor. Punks not dead.”


Kling added, “The world needs a punk, it has been far too long without. If you know a punk, then hand them this music. They will rejoice, I know because I was there.”

The debut FORE album is being mixed and mastered by Nordberg and Kling at their own Smoke & Mirrors Productions in Spring Hill, Florida.
