The Burden We Bear - "The Roman Candle"



















This 6 piece band are from Central Valley, CA. They have a great and interesting sound which they refer to as Jivecore. They released "The Roman Candle" late 2011..is it burning bright, or looking dim?.. Opening with "Severance 2.0" which has great guitar licks, beats and melodic riffs. A good introduction to the band. Coming in at just under 2 minutes, this track keeps it short but sweet!

"The Trip" consists of synths sounds, great guitar work, with a mix of clean and scream vocals and lots of dynamic tempo changes. Nothing not to like really! I especially like the creepy piano bit at the end... Very unexpected! The strangely titled, "Pachinko" again shows some great guitar licks, as shown throughout. I'm really digging their tones and production. Quite unique in places.

"Brought To You By Cinco" - really loving the main riff in this song!.. Very memorable! Lots of twists and turns, great structure and mastering! Possibly my favourite song on the EP. The brilliantly titled "Swagger Jagger" is by far the heaviest track on the album. Another highlight for me.

Its hard to find anything to dislike about this EP. All tracks are creative and well produced. I think this band have an awesome and overall quite unique sound! Have a listen and see for yourselves! For fans of: Stray From The Path, Attila, Dance Gavin Dance, Fall Of Troy, A Day To Remember. "The Roman Candle" is available on Itunes: http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/the-roman-candle-ep/id474333355 and Spotify.

EX-HIM Frontman Ville Valo Reveals New Band & Album

Ex-HIM Frontman Ville Valo has announced his return to music with his new band, Ville Valo & Agents, with their debut single, a cover of Rauli Badding Somerjoki's 'Orpolapsi Kiurun'(‘Orphan Child Of The Skylark’) to drop later this month on the 21st September, with an album to follow in 2019.


Ville has teamed up with Esa Pulliainen, guitarist with veteran Finnish band Agents, to record an album of songs inspired by late Finnish rock’n’roll singer Rauli Badding Somerjoki.

“This story begins three years ago,” says Pulliainen, whose band played with Badding in the 80s. “Upon finding three demo cassettes in my drawer which had been sent to me by Badding back in the day, I knew I had to contact Ville right from the get-go. I was aware he knows his Badding inside out. I'm really happy that we were able to finalize this project. Badding meant for these songs to be recorded and even if it took us 30 years to make that happen, I feel I've kept my promise."

Badding is…
