MINDWARS Sign With Dissonance Productions & New Album “Do Unto Others” Set For 2018 



Mike and the boys are hard at work completing the new album and preparing themselves for its launch in 2018.

MINDWARS was created in the fall of 2013 by the desire of two individuals who wanted to bring the sound of metal from the 1980s to the current power of today. Mike Alvord formerly of HOLY TERROR and Roby Vitari formerly of HEADCRASHER and JESTER BEAST, met by chance in 1989 when HOLY TERROR was touring Europe in support of their 1988 release Mind Wars.

Approximately 25 years later Mike and Roby reconnected through the internet and discussed creating something musically that they both believe has been lost. The result is MINDWARS, a rebirth of speed/thrash metal with metal, punk, and rock influences. MINDWARS have released two full-length albums, “THE ENEMY WITHIN” and “SWORN TO SECRECY”. The later was mixed and mastered with legendary metal producer BILL METOYER. Bill’s credits include the likes of Slayer, Dark Angel, D.R.I. Fates Warning, and dozens more!


MINDWARS are:
MIKE Alvord - GUITAR/VOCALS
Mike was absent from the music scene since the demise of Holy Terror in 1989. However, he has since reemerged and has a vault of musical diversities and plans to continue unleashing this sound with MINDWARS.

ROBY Vitari - DRUMS
Roby has been a staple in the Italian music scene for over thirty years. He has toured Europe extensively playing drums for various bands and recording dozens of records. His musical credits extend to studio work as an engineer and producer.

DANNY “Z” Pizzi- BASS
Danny provides the pounding heart beat and solidifies the rhythm section along with his Italian cohort Roby. He has been active in the music scene since 1990 playing in many rock/metal bands in the Turin area.

Mike Alvord / Mindwars comments:
“I am ecstatic to be working with everyone at Dissonance and stoked to be part of their family! With Do Unto Others, I hope to continue the aggressive drive of the music so many of us love! Speed Kills!!!

Steve Beatty / Dissonance Productions comments:
I’m so excited to have Mindwars on the label! I really like their previous two albums and was always a big fan of Holy Terror. I expect the new album to elevate the band to new heights and hope to see these guys hit the road in 2018!

Band-Maid MCM Comic Con Live Review/Feature - Fringe Festival 29/5/16

J-Rockers Band-Maid make first European performance at huge MCM Comic Con

Band-Maid, one of Japan’s up-and-coming all-girl rock acts, made their live debut to UK/Europe at MCM London Comic Con, which took place from 27-29th May 2016 at ExCel London, hosting the UK's biggest Modern Pop Culture Event.


The Tokyo quintet who formed in 2013, consisting of Miku (guitar/vocals), Saiki (vocals), Kanami (guitar), Akane (drums) and bassist Misa – have been building quite a reputation and fan-base all over with their blend of cute yet deadly rock music and stand out imagery (appropriately dressing as maids) whilst they unleash and deliver their seriously skilled and striking sounds. The concept of the maid outfit aesthetic stems from founder Miku’s experiences in the maid cafes of Akihabara – the Tokyo district known for otaku (‘geek’) culture and passion for rock music.


Through their music videos they have been reaping success and gaining well deserved attention, especially for the videos f…

REVIEW: Spreading The Disease - Insurrection

Modern metal quartet Spreading The Disease from Kent, UK formed in 2014 and then earlier this year in September 2017 they finally unleased their debut album ‘Insurrection’ which shows they are ready to infect metalheads and critics alike with their no-nonsense sounds…
Opening song ‘Find My Path’ starts with a melodic and resonant intro before fierce vocals come in with hard-hitting heavy guitars, it then goes on to feature an effective stripped back section towards the end which gives it extra depth. This is a powerful and strong start to the album.
‘Words Unspoken’ is a thumping tune with great rhythms and is very headbang worthy and incredibly catchy, keeping up the momentum is self-named track ‘Spreading The Disease’ which immediately pulls you in with catchy melodies and is all consuming with mighty riffs and a massive aggressive sound.
Latest single ‘Greed’ is frantic and driven and features some of the best guitarwork so far and again is very belligerent and is bound to get the mos…
