MAGNOLIA BAYOU Releases Official Music Video for Cover of Eddie James "Son" House Blues Hall of Fame Inducted "Preachin Blues'"

Mississippi based, Southern Blues / Rock Band MAGNOLIA BAYOU has released the official music video for their rock infused cover of the BLUES HALL OF FAME inducted, EDDIE JAMES "SON" HOUSE classic "Preachin' Blues." The fourth single off of the band's upcoming, sophomore album, STRANGE PLACE, "Preachin' Blues" was shot and edited by AUTUMN LEITH (WICKED & WONDER) & JOHN REYES (JOHN REYES NETWORKS).


Forged in the heart of a Mississippi swamp, Magnolia Bayou’s sound is appropriately reminiscent of the golden age of Rock N Roll, and it is simultaneously flavored with a heavy, southern swagger that is distinctively theirs. Their bluesy aura can be traced back to the groups origins, where they submerged and steeped themselves in their home state’s profound, musical wealth; covering the likes of Robert Johnson, Sonny Boy Williamson II, Howlin’ Wolf, John Lee Hooker, Son House and so many more. Like their musical forefathers, the band spent thr…

Spanish Melo death metallers Æolian announce new album The Negationist Out November 20th

The Negationist marks the sophomore release by the Spanish quintet Aeolian. Picking up where they left off on the critically acclaimed Silent Witness, the band bring a blistering attack to bear. Through ten tracks, the band weave a dynamic spell of melodic death metal, with threads of black, folk, and occasionally thrash metal threads to sew it all together. Variations in pacing, excellent mixing, a cohesive and rock solid rhythm section, and memorable riffing all combine to draw in the listener to the albums earnest beauty. Passionate vocals rest comfortably in the fabric of the mix, steering the album with lyrical content from an environmentalist perspective. The Negationist provides the type of fist pumping soundtrack sure to energize any listener.

With their second album titled ‘The Negationist’ where darkness and hope merge in an introspective trip marked by the damage we are doing to our own planet and how this is affecting us severely. This album has been mixed and produced by …

Voi and Luger told us:
“This is now just a continuation of what we have been doing all our lives and only now in our 'older age' we have done something serious.

SOUTH OF EDEN RELEASES OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO FOR “THE TALK;” 'THE TALK' EP OUT NOW!

After releasing their debut 'The Talk' EP, buzzing Columbus, OH rock band SOUTH OF EDEN have unleashed the official music video for the EP’s title track.
Check out the video for 'The Talk' below:

On the video, which was premiered by Rolling Stone, the band said: “This video ties all the ideas from the record together. Distorted views, unclear agendas, the masses following along and a sense of unsettling tension. All accompanied by a mixture of emotions, moods and lights. ‘The Talk’ was a lot of fun to shoot and quite a strange experience! The pandemic has changed a lot all over the world, and here in Ohio the laws are very strict on social distancing. When it was time to start planning a video, we knew a lot of work and research had to be done to ensure the video came out exactly how we envisioned it and that all of the guidelines were met. Temperature on arrival, masks, social distancing, the whole 9-yards. Kinda hard to read the cameraman’s face when you can’t see it! …
