Swedish Metal Band InSammer Release Single "Vampires"

  ‘Vampires’ by INSAMMER, is out now and available for streaming and downloading on all major platforms. The track is taken from the band's upcoming third full-length album, due in November 2021. The video for "Vampires" is premiered on August, 30 via YouTube. Directed by famous Turkish director Can Katipzade, the clip features frontwoman Vika in a role of a super-agent on a mission somewhere around the drug dealer’s mafia (starring all band members). Vika says: ‘Vampires’ is a very strong but yet very passionate track. Throughout the pandemic, me and Dennis were writing a lot of dark, philosophic meaning songs. We tried to write openly about the ups and downs of our lives. All of us are living in a world of illusions and lies, we betray and kill each other just to get a wealthy life. ‘Vampires’ is not a single about medieval horror blood stories but about everyday life with all the sh*t we face on TV, the Internet, magazines. Powerful riffs, heavy guitars and head crash

BRANDON BOYD releases "Petrichor"

  As a multi-disciplinary artist, Brandon Boyd uses all his senses to create. On his latest single, “Petrichor,” he highlights a sense seldom used in music as a metaphor… “I come from a place in the world where the sun is almost always shining, and as wonderful as that is, it does carry with it a kind of bias towards happiness and a constant stress around well being,” Brandon explains. “The irony of course is that it’ll drive you crazy trying to be happy all of the time. There is wisdom in sadness and grief, the kind of things we glean from “walking through the valley” can’t be replicated by merely speaking or reading about them, we need to be sad sometimes and enter darkened spaces in order to be more fully realized people. When it rains in Southern California, it’s such a rare event that it almost feels like we’re being invited to embrace the dark, weep for what is lost, and then emerge new and washed clean of those old feelings that were stuck on us and starting to rot in the punis

Everyone faces setbacks, especially musicians, and especially during the past 18 months.

Chris Ellis, 23, drummer, said “This song is for everyone who has decided to give up on music, or is thinking about it. Don’t! Please stick at it, too many people are leaving the industry”. Matt Sloan, 24, singer, rhythm guitarist and founding member of the
