SONG OF THE DAY- SUPERFECTA- BREATHE IN ( SINGLE REVIEW

Image
London’s very own grunge rockers’ Superfecta will release their first new track in two years via their music platform www. Aurovine.com   this Friday (Sept 18). “Breathe in” was written by lead singer Rob Negrini, as part of a trilogy of recordings for Superfecta beginning here. New bassist Joe Head is introduced for the first time for this evolution in sound for them. Breathe In marks a turn in direction to a more aggressive, darker sound I have never heard before. There is no holding back with the opening riff, an edgy and potent threat of distorted guitar. Each passage builds in tempo and intensity with similarities to Alice In Chains during their Dirt” era.  Matt Vella pounds the drums throughout each chord struck like an army general, as Negrini croons over solid basslines. Negrini delivers once more with vocals full of emotion and sincerity on a track I think is about turning one’s life around. The band sound like they are enjoying themselves without leaning too far from their me

Song of the day Harriet Comfort - Time Is Now ( single review)

Image
Words by Anselm Anderson. East End Rockers Harriet Comfort introduce themselves into the rock scene with debut single "Time is Now". The six friends have been gradually growing amongst the elite with appearances on radio stations, Spotify playlists, and recently shortlisted on the Classic Rock Track of the Week. The band, named after a pile of mysterious mail delivered to their flat, wrote this track about the environment. The band's brand of energetic rock, combined with keys and frenetic guitars to create a fun-loving song with a thought-provoking message. "Time is Now" comes to life with the announcement of the memorable three-chord guitar riff that sticks in the ear a long time afterwards. Vocalist Amy Church arrives with her commanding voice, alongside the rhythm section of Rick Gold on bass, Brett Mcfarlane on Lead guitar and Anna Peiris also form part of the factor, as their fervent musicianship accentuate Church's sultry voice. The drivin

SONG OF THE DAY Storm - Sinnerville (SINGLE REVIEW)

Image
Words by Anselm Anderson There is certainly a storm brewing with the emergence of this rock songstress from Germany. Storm is a dual nationality German/ South Africa born singer/ songwriter and actress who currently resides in the USA. She began writing songs and performing in School plays and theatres as a child before recording music in Nashville with some reputable artists. " Sinnerville" is her latest single based on the serious subject of Self -Harm told through the narrative of the Lewis Carroll Character Alice in Wonderland. This hard rock/ grunge song follows her as she battles addiction. Storm tells this vivid story with evocative imagery and heavy guitars in the guise of such female lead singers like Lizzy Hale. The opening notes resonate like broken glass to inform the listener they are on a journey down a gritty rock track. The thunderous raptures of drums follow before Storm announces her arrival with an impassioned growl. The opening salvo is a credit to

SONGS OF THE DAY- BLAME THE SACRED VIOLENCE & THE EXHILED

Doncaster metallers' Blame The Sacred return with this dual single following their excellent EP "The Path" in March via Forge AMP. The Quintet has managed to keep themselves amused during lockdown with the releases of "The Exiled/Violence, due out on September 7th 2020. ( Click here to read "The Path" review)  https://anselmanderson.blogspot.com/2020/03/band-of-week-blame-sacred-path-ep.html The Exiled  carries on from where The Path  left off. This hard-hitting track comes with a clear message-  a voice for the downtrodden! It seems to be a patent for Blame The Sacred to deliver meaty riffs that would knock you over with a proverbial punch. Thunderous drums, an intense intro and sonic vocals help define the true meaning behind what the band want to convey. Vocalist Danny Porter continues to evolve as a trusted singer with adaptability to dig deeper into his arsenal to mix melodies and growls to sound like a man visiting his own demons. The Violence is

SONG OF THE DAY- ARISING SONS- LOVE IS COMING DOWN

Image
Arising Sons emerge onto the music scene with " Love is Coming Down", their first single from the as-yet-untitled debut album, due out later this summer. The Grand Rapids-based rock band hope to deliver a positive message about Jesus in their pursuit to write catchy songs for fervent new fans. This particular track looks at the story of Zacchaeus, as the lead singer and guitarist Brett Mezey explain, " You have never heard a song about Zacchaeus like this before. “Love Is Coming Down” is a song inspired by the story of Zacchaeus who climbed a tree to see Jesus as he was walking by. As Jesus walked by, he asked Zacchaeus to come down from that tree and went to his home. Just as Jesus called to him, he has also called to me. Love came down from heaven in Jesus and the world has never been the same " Love is Coming Down" begins with the atmospherics of walking onto the beach before the strums of an acoustic guitar resonate.
