Broken Glow Interview

Broken Glow on their sound: "It's meant to replicate some kind of astral projection or link to a higher consciousness." 




Looking for a new diverse rock band?! Broken Glow from Georgia, US fit the bill with their 'bluesy hard rock' that they have been delivering since 2008. So read on to find out about this exciting and deep band...




So first things first, how did you come up with your band name and what is the story behind it?


The name "Broken Glow" was stumbled upon as we pored through lyric sheets of bands we were influenced by. We'd had a hard time coming up with a name, and after trying strange brainstorming tactics, random word generators and everything else we could think of, we turned to Led Zeppelin and The Beatles for inspiration. The two words of our name are taken from songs by these artists.



Can you tell us a bit about your formation in 2008?



Our lineup has morphed quite a bit over the years, but the band's inception was the spring of 200…

For those not familiar, can you tell us a bit about your band name?

I’d love to – but the guy I started the band with came up with it – just never told me where it came from or what it meant – I’m still struggling to say it right to be honest – any ideas?


You have a unique metal sound, how would you best describe your music?

Unique? Praise indeed – thanks! An erstwhile manager once described it as tough lift music – that’ll probably do.


You have built up quite the reputation for …

Azucar Acida - El Blah Blah Blah Oficial (Single Review)

Are you looking for some light-hearted and strange music to escape the depressing reality of humanity?! Look no further, Panamanian pop rockers, Azucar Acida who formed last year have you covered,  by injecting some humorous music and compelling visuals in one shot with their debut release, titled, 'El Blah Blah Blah Oficial'. As you can probably fathom from the name, it doesn't take itself too seriously, and is highlighting the funny side of arguments. We are all tempted to respond with "Blah Blah" at times, and Azucar Acida do just that in this upbeat and bizarrely satisfying offering. The video is well produced and in perfect sync with the song for maximum effect, and the whole concept works weirdly well. The chorus really makes the song, with its straight forward simpleness that everyone can blast out and join in with. So forget your troubles and embrace the attitude of 'El Blah Blah Blah Oficial'! Arguments aren't fun, but this song certainly is!

Great band name, is this referring to Shutter Island? Can you tell us a bit about it and how you arrived at this?

For sure! And thank you - the title is indeed a reference to Shutter Island.

To tell you the truth, the name sort of came about one day while the band was in its early stages. It’s a favourite movie of mine, and the name honestly just stuck straight away haha - I kind of threw it out there as suggestion to our guitarist Dylan and he was like, yep - that’ll do.

The name itself definitely represents a lot of incredible themes within the movie, and similar themes are covered in our music - such as self-reflection, deception and coming to terms with …

Expedition Delta is a project from multi-talented and successful Serbian heavy metal artist, Srdjan Brankovic, best know for being in big power metal band, AlogiA.

The entire album sees the powerful Nikola Mijic take on lead vocals, with help from Andjela Isic providing beautiful vocals that compliment Nikola's tones brilliantly.

Srdjan is quite revered, having opened for well known rock acts, Whitesnake, Apocalyptica, Blaze Bayley and more. He is back to stun yet again in this latest offering, where anticipation and expectations are running high, with a fine cavalry on his side...
