Charles Roman, the only singer, songwriter and author of Cosmos Dream, develops his own idea of what ambient Progressive rock should be. After a first album out in 2008, which was exploring the theme of hope in the totalitarian regime painted by Georges Orwell in his famous novel "1984" ("Hope Of Dream"), the son of Jacques Roman (Pulsar's keyboardist) introduces his second masterpiece, "How To Reach Infinity". Here's a double-album published in the year 2012 by the Musea Parallèle label, a philosophical quest about the human civilization, the place of Man and the transcendence. The thematic evolution finds its reflection in the musical evolution of the album, which moves slowly from Progressive rock inspired by Pink Floyd, Porcupine Tree and Pulsar to ambient music in a style cherished by Brian Eno, Jon Hopkins or Vangelis.
Multinational metal band DRAGONFORCE will release its new album, "Reaching Into Infinity", on May 19 via earMUSIC on CD, LP and a special-edition CD and DVD. The follow-up to 2014's "Maximum Overload" will mark the band's third full-length studio release with singer Marc Hudson, who joined the group in 2011 following the departure of original frontman ZP Theart (now in SKID ROW). For their seventh studio album, DRAGONFORCE have opened up their sound like never before, capturing the fierce, forlorn and fun with both menace and melody.
Devin Townsend's second album proves to be a very different beast from his first, taking away the atmospheric, subtle, clean tracks, for outright madness and fun. The production is very strange, both sounding very clear, yet also having a degree of muddiness to it, the compositions are incredibly varied, sounding more like individual tracks rather than a cohesive album, and their is a sense of outright fun to be found here, rather than the extremely solemn 'Ocean Machine: Biomech'. Due to this being a Devin Townsend release, one thing that can be counted on is the absolutely perfect vocals for any case, ranging from beautiful and operatic, to aggressive screaming.
Digitally remastered collection. The members of The Avengers (from New Zealand) were hand-picked by their manager Ken Cooper in early 1966 - to be the resident band at his new club in Wellington, New Zealand. After signing with HMV Records in early 1967, and their first single came from an itinerant songwriter Chris Malcom who made up a song during an evening performance in front of an HMV A&R man…
If there was ever any question about pop punk’s continued popularity, New Found Glory is proof that the youthful genre never went away. After 23 years together, the Florida band has maintained relevancy by staying loyal to their peppy Warped Tour sound and their fans, and Forever and Ever x Infinity, their tenth studio album, shows them at their most refined. Singer Jordan Pundik’s joyful, nasal vocal tone has only become more distinguished, and the band has mastered what made them so distinctive in the first place: palm-muted power chords and gang vocals (“Nothing to Say”), nerdy pop culture references (“Scarier Than Jason Voorhees at a Campfire”), and playful self-deprecation (“Double Chin for the Win”) alongside assurances that everything is going to be okay (“Shook by Your Shaved Head”). These are songs meant to elicit the same rush as a school-age crush, just like New Found Glory songs always have.
