Living Dead Girl – Alive
Living Dead Girl’s new single “Alive” from their “Exorcism” album captures the chthonic energy that the band is well known for. The music video, in addition dark and ominous, uses a lack of colourful visuals to highlight the incredible vocals. Hard-hitting but also catchy, it’s an excellent song to get pumped up to.

Album: Exorcism(June 11, 2021)
TETRARCH – Addicted
TETRARCH’s new single “Addicted” feels reminiscent of early punk. The song, as belligerent as it is, has lyrics digging deep to a message that many can relate to. Frontman and guitarist Josh Fore says:
“Addicted’ is a song about being consumed by something in life that to the outside eye may appear detrimental or dangerous. Even as our world may be spiraling away from us into chaos there’s something that draws us towards our obsessions. ‘Now I can see that the joke is on me’ is that moment of self-awareness: that we cannot escape who we are and that we are stuck in our own addictions.”
Single: “Addicted” (April 28, 2021)
Album: Unstable (April 30, 2021)
BERNTH – Caprice no. 24
It is always refreshing to hear instrumental songs, they absolutely go criminally underappreciated. BERNTH is an incredibly talented guitarist. The song makes use of several complicated progressions, always changing leaving the listener heighted and unsure of what comes next. The music video draws attention to the guitar and points away from the musician. It is mesmerizing to see the glide of fingers from each chord.
Single: “Caprice No. 24” (April 23, 2021)
Album: Elevation (May 14, 2021)
Flying Cupid – Oasis
A collaboration with Lukas Magyar along with I Built the Sky, the three groups worked well together. The layered vocals make for an interesting and multidimensional listen. The finishing guitar solo, though transient, was a captivating finale.
Single: “Oasis” (April 23, 2021)
Album: All Turns to Dust (June 11, 2021)
Motörhead / Louder Than Noise… Live in Berlin
This live album is invigorating, first with the energy from the band and secondly from the crowd. With live recordings there is always the risk of the sound being fuzzy from an abundance of noise however this recording is clear. You are able to hear the instruments and vocals perfectly and are left only with the rewards of a live performance.
Album: Louder Than Live…Live in Berlin (April 23, 2021)
IV and the Strange Band – Son of Sin
The 23 second mark of the song is stupefying. They drew listeners in immediately with a sudden drop in the song right at the beginning. Very rarely is a mashup of rock and country done so well. Never realized until now how well the fiddle and heavy drums accompany each other.
Single: “Son of Sin” (April 20, 2021)
INCITE – Deadbeat
It has been a common internet trend to romanticize quarantine and also make the most of self improvement during these times. INCITE shows us the reality for the majority in the last year.
They were not shy and also did not censor any subjects. It is clear that the band was able to channel their frustration with the pandemic into a song. This will give a feeling of kinship with their audience who, undoubtedly, are feeling the same way.
Single: “Deadbeat” (April 20, 2021)
Ophelia and Empty Streets – Vehement
This dark electro-pop tune is accompanied by a strange obscure music video. The song is simple, whereas the video feels hypnotizing with the moving images and also blurred lines. This was a collaboration found during the pandemic and they obviously work well together.
Single: “Vehement” (April 16, 2021)
