Brit Rock Trio RAYNE Reveal Details Of 'Complex By Design' Album

RAYNE Release Details Of Upcoming New 'Complex By Design' Album

The infectiously melodic Alt-Indie Rock outfit 'RAYNE' unveil news of the arrival of their long-awaited 'Complex By Design' album.

Available for digital download from 1st Dec 2017, the band with a flair for sky-searing anthemic hook-lines showcase their evolution into darker and heavier synth driven territories with this 7 track offering. Co-produced by RAYNE and Kyle Martin, Complex By Design unabashedly resonates with sonically epic overtones and textures. Hard hitting and huge sounding songs that feature explosive chorus lines, multi layered guitar sounds, pop-leaning electronica and all encompassed within the Sunderland (UK) trio's ability to steer listeners on a magical journey through emotive song arrangements and intricate dynamics. Lengthy compositions with a huge depth of sound whilst avoiding any superfluous studio production techniques.

Vocalist & Bassist 'Ben Potts' delivers fervent performances with his distinct vocal tones - taking on a variety of lyrical subject matters. Despite tackling themes such as metal health, terminal illness, love, loss and even conspiracy theories; don't expect RAYNE to be wallowing with melancholic introspection as each song is emotively uplifting, promoting a sense of optimism to stand strong in the face of life's personal challenges.

Originally forming over 20 years ago during their school days, the years of close friendship, respect and creative synergy has held the group united together. Staying true to their desire to deliver stadium sized songs akin to their comparators The Killers, Muse, Coldplay, Imagine Dragons and 30 Seconds To Mars, RAYNE have stood firm with their epic-rock creations and remain unfazed by past and present trends in music industry fashions. Ben Potts along with fellow comrades Adam Dagg (Guitar/Keys) and Steven Naisbet (Drums/Samples) possess a musical formula that has helped build a loyal army of fans and followers through years of gigging, festival appearances and growing support from media around the world.

With their debut album for UK indie label Ambicon Records 'The New Enlightenment' (2013) proving the band's evident potential; 'Complex By Design' may well be the catalyst to propel their music to a much wider global audience.

COMPLEX BY DESIGN available 1st December 2017

INTERVIEW: Cellar Darling (Switzerland)

Cellar Darling is comprised of Anna Murphy, Ivo Henzi, and Merlin Sutter who recently formed following the spilt from previous well-known folk metal band, Eluveitie. The trio have been hard at work since, creating their anticipated debut album 'This Is The Sound' which was released June 30th via Nuclear Blast Records and have impressed fans and press alike with their fresh and unique sound which has been dubbed as "the new wave of folk rock“. This is an exciting and busy time for the band, so I caught up with them to find out about their origins, their new album, touring and what is in store for the band amongst other things..

Can you tell us about the formation of Cellar Darling following leaving your previous band Eluveitie and how the band came to be?
Merlin: What I remember most clearly is how quick it went. As you might know, the whole thing with Eluveitie came very unexpected for us - we were informed of a decision by the remain…

REVIEW: Bobaflex - Eloquent Demons

Hard Rockers Bobaflex from West Virginian are back to wreak havoc with their eighth album ‘Eloquent Demons’ which is the follow to 2015’s ‘Anything That Moves’, this sees not only their first release through Thermal Entertainment but their first actual label release in a while after the band decided to go independent. They are a very hardworking and tireless band, having extensively toured, and even setting records for this, they certainly don’t do anything by half measures.
The opening intro and title track sounds very appropriately evil, with a creepy intro speech to set the scene whilst we wait for the demons to be fully unleashed…
First proper track ‘I Am Nightmare’ immediately sees heavy dark guitars and melodic group singing, which give it a classic feel with a gritty edge and is possesses a hell of a powerful chorus, not to mention a killer solo – this will be hard to forget.
Keeping the momentum going is ‘Long Time Coming’ which is equally as hard-hitting, with groove ridden and…

As a musician who has played in many bands, most notably The Wildhearts and formed many projects, how did you come to form Mutation and why when you did?

Ginger: I did it mainly because I wanted to make the music that was in my head, and it didn’t look like anyone else wanted to do it.

At the time I was playing and writing with Michael Monroe, and while I l…
