Calatrilloz - Single Reviews







 

Calatrilloz are a London based concept band whose music is composed around a tale, "The Marionette's Theatre", where a bunch of supernatural beings ( the band members) search the world for the possessed string puppets and their power within. By infusing a story, and their images/disguises (which don't come across as a gimmick but rather add to the mystery and intrigue of this interesting unique act) they have created their Operatic blend of Symphonic Metal and Progressive Rock!

The band have been around for a while now but they are back with two new singles ready to draw in a new crowd!..

The first new single is, 'Lords Of Misery' which has a dark and dramatic theatrical opening...as you might expect! It has creepy vibes which are created through the use of superb and varied vocals backed by a massive sound through the instruments, which cleverly give the impression of tension rising with a dark brooding sound. The song picks up the pace making for a very dynamic and diverse song with lots of tempo changes and effortless transitions!

 



The second new single as above, 'A Glimpse At A Fool's Destiny' has an eerie opening like a horror soundtrack and quite fittingly tells a tale of a boy named Johnny and his journey to hell! There is a great elaborate mix of instruments which are heightened by Zahyin's high vocal delivery (and effective dramatic backing vocals) along with complex instruments to accompany. Again the tempo changes help unravel the story and demonstrate the bands technical ability and musicianship, making you hang on to every mood and note change..this one will draw you in!

This theatrical act really strive in their impeccable composition and use of progressive elements and heavy metal, all of course with a delightful and dark flair of creativeness through their operatics! Each song you can immerse yourself in the story and envision it - and soon you will be able to witness it with you own eyes as let's face it these songs are begging for visual performances! The band have released a teaser for their upcoming video which you can see below!

I for one can't wait to hear more from this exciting epic act!..And luckily we don't have to wait long as they are releasing a new single each month, with a total of 8 songs! So keep checking back on their website for more:

Rock Duo SONS Release Video Single 'Marco' Raising Awareness Of Mental Health & Gun Control

Brighton punk rockers are back and hitting hard once again with their new video single 'Marco'. They have released a powerful video to accompany the song which was directed by Graham Cullis.

Check out the video for 'Marco' below:




The band states that: "The Message in this video is primarily to promote mental health illness awareness and how we need to cure the mind to help prevent tragedy that often occurs due to ignorance of others dismissing the people that need help." 

Although ‘Marco’ was inspired by shootings in the USA such as the Stoneman Douglas High School incident and the YouTube attack in this video shows that gun control is something that needs to be addressed globally. As well as some cases in the US the video also shows footage of the Nairobi mall massacre in Kenya and the aftermath of the Dunblane Primary School in Scotland. SONS are fully behind any campaign aimed at tightening gun laws and making people more responsible with their firearms so th…

TO BE RELEASED MARCH 16TH ON APF RECORDS!

Recorded with engineer Jamie Dodd (Orange Goblin) at Flesh & Bone Studio's, Hackney and tracked by Steve 'Geezer' Watkins at Woodworm studios (which has also been used by legendary Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi), ‘Sentinels’ is a colossal sounding record, it’s ten tracks punching the listener with an oppressive towering monolithic sound that batters, but never dulls the senses.


“This album is a natural progression from our previous releases,” explains guitarist Ryan Cole. “It has the Desert Storm sound, but has moved in a much harder, darker and heavier direction.”



Today we get to hear the first rumblings from ‘Sentinels’ in …
