Press Release: VITNE Comes Out Swinging With His Newest Single “Vanquish The Night”

Article by: Justyn Brodsky

Since the success of 2017’s acclaimed album Jupiter, Norway’s Power Metal & Melodic Hard Rock recording artist VITNE shakes the landscape with his newest single “Vanquish The Night.”

With an inspirational and anthemic quality about his songs, VITNE‘s music has captivated fans around the globe by the masses and has been featured in a vast array of international publications from Brazil and Chile to Russia, China and Japan. Now following up the award winning Jupiter album, VITNE brings forth a powerful force behind his voice in his latest anthem “Vanquish The Night” and it does not disappoint.

Drawing comparisons to industry heavyweights and artists of his caliber including X Japan, Billy Idol and Gackt, VITNE‘s melodic presence and top of the line production value comes full circle in this new single and delivers up an eyebrow raising listening experience from the very first riff.

From soaring guitar leads, a pounding rhythm section and an exceptional showcasing of vocal ranges, “Vanquish The Night” puts a modern spin on an 80s Metal-infused approach with VITNE‘s signature touch we’ve all come to know and love since his inception into the market. The song is climactic, innovative and provides elements of symphonic overtones and a fantasy-like quality in different chapters of the song. There are twists and turns, but nothing out of place. This single is everything you’ll hope it’ll be plus so much more. It’s the type of song that is catchy, heavy and has that instant-classic status.

“Vanquish The Night” unleashes on November 15th and will be available on all digital music retailers and streaming platforms. This will be one of your favorite releases before the year is out, and shows a very promising direction for VITNE‘s legacy.

Artist Review: Nokturnal Funeral – “Creatures Of The Night” LP

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

With haunting rhythms, atmospheric narratives and a cinematic eeriness that brings electronic music to darker realms, Nokturnal Funeral puts the perfect industrial spin on today’s EDM sensibility with the latest album Creatures Of The Night.

Conceptually, every track is its own creature in and of itself. It delves into the darkness of places our minds never go, and leaves us with a feeling of losing ourselves in the moment and giving into our most primal urges – whether we expect to or not. And that’s what makes this album so brilliant, it brings us to places we’d never go on our own. Both musically and visually.

Each track has composed production value, but has a surprise around every corner that grabs us by the throat and refuses to let go. It’s an anthemic album that is worthy of video game soundtracks and today’s modern thriller films. It has that atmosphere that really holds the power to enhance even the most semi-visceral visuals, and I wouldn’t be surprised if Nokturnal Funeral got picked up for some work in film scores.

Each song delivers a new realm of dark moods and emotions that takes us for more than just a mild rollercoaster. These tracks are climactic and cliffhanging, and have a relentless way of keeping us at the edge of our seats – whether we strapped in for the ride or not. Regardless, the strength is unwavering but not overpowering. Which is the perfect medium that sits between 90s industrial artists like Aphex Twin and Nine Inch Nails, and today’s more mainstream EDM circuit that has hit the industry like electric shock in the last decade.

Either way, Nokturnal Funeral fits right in with the climb of electronic music and just might be the new anchor to EDM’s darkest pleasures. And you won’t hesitate to indulge.

Press Release: Bound By None releases “The Descent” Single

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

If you love old school hardcore and early 2000s Punk with today’s elite production value, then Bound By None‘s “The Descent” will punch you in the throat.

Going back to the glory days of high-velocity power chords and gang vocals, “The Descent” is absolute proof that punk is not dead, and never was in the first place. Armed with a punchy rhythm section, glass cutting guitar progressions and melodic vocals that have a razor’s edge, Bound By None delivers up elements of old school punk (ie: Suicide Machines – “Destruction By Definition,” The Descenedants, Pennywise…) and gives the genre amazing continuity and a fresh face.

The band is extremely tight and well rehearsed. We have a drummer that cruises through each measure with precision, accuracy and relentless energy. And that’s the key word for this band – ENERGY. Lots of it. This song is definitely one for the books if you’re looking for the next best sports-arena anthem, or even perhaps a wrestling match. Either way, this song grabs you by the neck and refuses to let go.

Seriously, if you’re into true punk rock without the “indie” or “pop” flavors, then Bound By None‘s “The Descent” will be your new favorite track. And this band will be at the top of your favorites. The single is currently available on digital music retailers and streaming platforms.

Artist Review: Sixty Miles Down – “I Can’t Complain” Single

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

With heavy grooves, a punchy rhythm section and blistering guitar riffs, New Jersey’s hard rock outfit Sixty Miles Down makes some serious noise with their latest banger “I Can’t Complain”.

Reminiscent of a sound influenced by Alice In Chains with a few extra notches of volume, this song does not disappoint. From riffy to catchy and everything that is loud enough to wake up your neighborhood, “I Can’t Complain” really steps up the game for the dudes in Sixty Miles Down and really grabs you by the throat from beginning to end and never lets up.

We get a hefty set of grooves from the rhythm section, and it really helps the gain-fueled guitars soar high with the vocals at the forefront. The production value fits this song perfectly and the authenticity of the band’s writing style and straightforward sound is what makes it all the more impressive. These guys don’t need post production theatrics – just crank the volume and play f*cking loud.

With hypnotic verses that build up the aura of anticipation, we get lead down the path of anxiousness when finally reaching the climactic chorus. You know it’s coming, but will it be executed correctly? Absolutely. These guys focus on the songwriting factor and it really glistens when that chorus hits you like a house of bricks. It’s definitely one of those songs where you’ll be cranking it more than once, likely back-to-back just to let this band work you up again – because they can.

And that’s my favorite part about this song. It’ll hit you over the head simply because it can. If you crave a heavy dose of real heavy rock minus the “core” and “electro” saturation, Sixty Miles Down will be your fresh breath of air instantly.

Artist Review: Bad Marriage – “Old School Stereo” Official Music Video

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

Grab 5 of the best musicians you personally know with similar artist influences, stuff them into one explosive package, and this is the band you get.

A lot of artists have tried to “bring back” the hair band era. Most have failed at it, and some comically pushed themselves to notoriety with it (ie: The Darkness, Ugly Kid Joe, Green Jelly).

Then there’s Boston’s Bad Marriage. A band I truly believe has re-captured what other bands have tried their damndest to capture, but at the same time have put their own spin on the era. And their song “Old School Stereo”, accompanied by a cinematic music video, tackles this concept perfectly.

A band that’s only been around since 2016, these guys have it all – down to the image, style, talent, but best of all – songwriting ability. The chemistry and cog of the machine is comprised of riffy guitar tones and chugs, a pounding rhythm section, and a vocal range that fits this genre like a glove. And although Bad Marriage just by their photographs seem to be a band just lusting for the 80s, they are so much more than that. And it’s this particular song and music video that emphasizes exactly what they’ve managed to bring to the table.

Bringing all the elements from the late 70s and 80s we’ve come to know and love, “Old School Stereo” brings forth a concept that shows us that a band can still execute an old school genre in today’s mainstream sensibility. The video is straight-forward with girls, cinematography, a charismatic and energetic show experience, and a song & video that is produced in a way that showcases Bad Marriage most effectively. Everything from the dangerously catchy chorus, gang-style harmonies, and the overall aura that has made rock & roll what it is today.

And we are definitely not the first ones to take notice of the gem that this band really is. They’ve opened for a vast array of legendary acts, including Buckcherry, Eddie Money, Extreme, Dokken, the Michael Schenker Fest, John5, LA Guns, and many more.

I could seriously go on all day about how fucking awesome this band is, but I think it’d be a better idea to just take our word for it now and go watch/listen to “Old School Stereo” and let Bad Marriage speak for themselves. You’ll be glad we sent you there.

Artist Review: Untitled Art – “Philly To Long Branch Part 2” Single

Review by: Justyn Brodsky


Energetic, fast, relentless, and a blast of versatility in the EDM wave. 

I’ve never really heard anything like this. Untitled Art brings us a fast-paced and heavy presence with their powerful, grungy take on EDM with their single “Philly To Long Branch Part 2”, presenting some of the most impressive vocal executions that could be displayed with this type of in-your-face energy. 

It’s melodic, versatile, unforgettable to the ear, and absolutely original. It starts out completely eye-brow raising and continues to get more insatiably dynamic, innovative, loud, and action-movie worthy. 

The vocal ranges and overall mix is one of the best parts that brings out the mastered craft and artistic merit with this single, and it never outdoes itself in any way. The structures continue to stay loud, but melodic. Its formula is very fresh, but you can still hear many of yesterday and today’s musical influences that give this song extremely high likability factors. It’s definitely a song you’ll come back to time and time again, especially if you’re looking to blast something raw and original to your friends or music lovers looking for new food for the ear.

This is a brilliant single, and it definitely entices you to research more into what Untitled Art has available in their past catalogue, and future collectively. Chances are, you won’t be disappointed in the least.

Artist Review: Damson Blaze – “Hush” Single

Review by: Justyn Brodsky


Female vocals? Check. Catchy chorus? Check. A guitarist with enough Flying V’s to fill an entire room? Check.

With a great combination of 80’s and 90’s Female-fronted rock with some of today’s mainstream sensibilities, Virginia quartet Damson Blaze delivers a fresh in-your-face rock anthem with their newest single “Hush”

You can definitely hear some of our favorite iconic influences from this band, including Deep Purple, Rush, and a pinch of Pearl Jam. However Damson Blaze have manifested into a sound that is recognizable, lovable, and focuses more on writing some killer rock songs to entertain the crowd rather than delving into some sort of “experimental multi-genre” spinoff that falls flat most of the time. This band is ready to be loud, fun, and always makes sure there’s room for a shredding guitar solo.

“Hush” is not designed to be your next overly-versatile daring take on rock, they just keep it real. Good riffs, fun live show, a swell Martha Davis style vocal approach, and something that easily sticks in your head. It’s not aimed to change the game, it’s aimed at making it better altogether. Because when it comes to Rock nowadays, some bands and artists tend to insult the genre by over analyzing their mixes and using far too many EDM or electronically integrated plugins for their final touch. But in my opinion Damson Blaze doesn’t have time for those kind of fratty antics. This is simply a “plug in and rock out” persona. No BS needed.

I recommend “Hush” based on the formula that has always worked with Rock. And that’s to simply keep it loud, make it catchy, and never forget to leave room for a guitar solo! “Hush” is the title track of their upcoming EP of the same name. We are itching to hear more of it. And after giving this song a listen yourself, you will be as well.
