Canada’s Lutharö unleashed their sophomore EP “Wings of Agony” this past March. More innovative and imaginative than theirdebut EP “Unleash The Beast”, Lutharö stepped out of their comfort zone for “Wings of Agony”. Their catchy riffs, blazing solos, and vocals ranging from vicious growls to cleans are sure to send a chill down your spine, making them a well-rounded powerhouse of a band that brings beauty, aggression, and skill to the genre.
New York-based Australian producer/songwriter Sir Winston shares his favourite tips & tricks in the studio and presents his new single, ‘Hollywood Hills’
Be prepared. Time in the studio is precious. There are so many variables that come in to play so I like to be as prepared as possible. I have lots of early discussions with the team, a game plan allocating time to where the most work needs to be done. I like to spend the most time on guitars but my vocal normally needs the most time. Sometimes we get stuck on an idea and I like to write in the studio too, but time runs so fast – so someone needs to have at least one eye on the clock.
I have had this album on regular play for about a month now thanks to our own Josie O’Toole at Rock People Management, and have found it really hard to get a suitable focus on the content of the record in order to write a coherent review.
This is the Brighton (UK) riff-lords third album in their 12-year history, and got released as a result of a successful crowd-funding campaign that initially fell over due to the Pledge crisis, and got revived through the band’s own web-store – and the album was released in May.
So the whole band is basically vegan! We’ve all been vegetarian for years, and have been slowly phasing towards full vegan. This wasn’t planned by the way haha we just all happened to have that outlook on our diets! Works a treat on tour cause shopping is cheap and we can all eat the same stuff.
The newest release, their fifth studio album in just over 10 years, from the Lancaster rockers Massive Wagons will be released on 17th July 2020, via Earache Records. This is another of the NWOCR powerhouse bands who have been laying waste to the UK over the past couple of years with their incendiary brand of ludicrously catchy power-pop rock, punk metal, and the latest offering is again full of crowd-pleasing shoutalong riff-driven songs.
Mixing the twang of country music with the hard-hitting stomp of rock & roll, Canada’s Cory Marks makes his debut with Who I Am. Full of autobiographical storytelling, guitar-driven anthems, drinking songs, and breakup ballads, Who I Am is rooted in the influence of his hometown in Ontario. Whenever he wasn’t drumming along to songs by Deep Purple, Ozzy Osbourne, and Rush, he was listening to his parents’ country records, developing a deep appreciation for outlaws like Waylon Jennings and Merle Haggard.
