Introducing: Relent

I am proud to introduce a new hard rock band to all of you by the name of RELENT. These guys are just starting out in San Antonio, TX. but they have a very professional, polished sound and yet are still independent. They have a powerful message and a strong spiritual center, sharing the truth of Jesus with a hurting world. Their sound is sort of a mix of Korn, Spoken, Papa Roach, Disturbed, and RED. You can purchase the band’s debut two singles “Rise” and “Surrendered” right here via iTunes. Thanks Jason Parker (Ex-Focused) for sharing this band with me Continued →

Introducing: Not Beneath

You need to check out this amazing band called Not Beneath from Ohio featuring ex-members of Narcissus, Outcry, North Meadow Park, and Vessel. Complex, technical, heartfelt and spiritual heavy metal. This is a band you absolutely need to give a listen to. Check out their debut full length “memento mori” below (or right here on bandcamp). If you are into early Becoming The Archetype you’ll love this. Thanks Marco for the recommendation! Continued →

The Prettybads - Maybe I'm Not The One You Wanted (Punk Rock Demo)

I am proud to present the first demo recording by new band The Prettybads titled “Maybe I’m Not The One You Wanted”. This is a rough demo of a song that will appear on the band’s debut due out this year on their new label home – Thumper Punk Records. This female fronted punk rock band would appeal to fans of The Distillers, Ramones, Joan Jett & The Blackhearts, Blaster the Rocketman, Huntingtons, and Halo Friendlies. Stream and Download the song below or right here. Continued →

REVIEW : The Beckoning - The Desolation of War

Canadian progressive death metallers The Beckoning have been making noise since 2010.  This release combines two earlier demos—Desolate (2014) and War (2012) into one remastered full-length.  Truly progressive, this 4-song clocks in at over 29 minutes, making it either a very long EP, or a full-length with only 4 songs, depending on one’s perspective.

REVIEW : coopertheband - Kingdoms

The press release labelled this as “Indie Folk Rock.”  And while that is mildly accurate, it certainly doesn’t tell you all you need to know.  Full disclosure: I’m a bit of 90s slacker kind of guy.  So indie rock to me means loud guitars, dissonant riffs, punk attitude and band photos that make it look like the members are made up of blind golfers.  Continued →

Mainframe Announce "Burn The Boats Ep"

I am proud to announce the next IVM release which will be a follow up EP from Mainframe titled “Burn The Boats”. This 6 track ep will feature some of that same feel from the Debut last summer and continue on the trend started with the recent “Undivided Devotion” but taken to a whole new level. The ep will feature a special punk rock “cover” song along with a bunch of other great originals. Read a little blurb from NoahMainframe, below. Release date has yet to be determined. Stay tuned

“I wanted to let you know I’ve been working with guitar hero Demetrio Scopelliti on a new Mainframe song called “Peter,” based on the life and writings of the apostle. I asked Demetrio for advice when I couldn’t get my guitars to push out the “metal” sound I was looking for. He ending up recording the guitars for this track in his style (he plays 8 string!), and it sounds great! It’s going to make a great addition to Burn the Boats.” Continued →

Announcement of the track came via the band’s website:

“Deeper Underground, Kekal’s upcoming 11th full-length album, follows pretty much the same release process as with the latest album “Multilateral” (2015), with majority of tracks to be released individually as they are ready, before the album release date in 2018.

REVIEW : Praiser - 20 Again

“Blessed Be The Punk”

We all want relive the days of our youth. Remember being young, vibrant, forceful in our thoughts and actions? Age doesn’t necessarily take those attributes away. Praiser makes that abundantly clear in their punk music. The band’s latest album, 20 Again, doesn’t bring age as its theme, but rather a collection of twenty great songs from their past.

Today's Thoughts on Marketing and Social Media by Brandon Jones

Good morning everyone and Happy New Year! Just thought i’d post a little blurb about an alarming “trend” I have seen in recent months. A few artists/bands have hooked up with some marketing firms, more like infomercial style marketing if you are looking for a definition. Anyway, I have been blasted with these ads for whatever reason on Facebook due to my young teenage demographic that I so lovingly belong to. I’m almost 40 going on almost 20, am I right? I have nothing against promoting art/music/products on social media and the web in general, I’ve done it myself for IVM and friends/labels do it for their bands all the time. What I take issue with is this infomercial style barrage of marketing where it sort of amounts to a gimmick. I am not about to attack any one artist (cough cough Manafest cough cough) or call people out for this brand of “hype” but I just wanted to gather everyone’s opinions on this. This does not amount to DIY ethics nor does it promote open and honest dialogue with fans. You can’t “buy” fans or followers on social media. You can “promote” your brand (do we call it that?) and share what you do with people who may have never heard about it but we don’t go beyond that and say “Check out IVM for $49.99 but if you act now we will DOUBLE your offer for same price of $49.99 (you pay shipping and handling). You’ve heard it all before on TV and Radio so let’s leave it out of music. See below for examples of what I’m talking about. Continued →

REVIEW : TIMŌRĀTUS - Reverentia

While this band hails from Louisville, I would have sworn they were from eastern Europe somewhere.  That’s a good thing.  Reverentia is yet another quality post-metal release I’ve come across recently.  But whereas the mysterious band God revel in djent rhythms and instrumental anthems to connect the listener to God, TIMŌRĀTUS takes a different approach altogether.  Continued →

CHPTRS Release New Ep Titled "Chapter Two"

CHPTRS which features Josh Auer of Pax217, Avner, and recently The OC Supertones (2010-2017), has a new group called CHPTRS that is an ambient, experimental, indie rock duo. They released Chapter One back in fall of 2017 and now Chapter Two has been made available. Check out these two great eps over on MusicBed right here. You can also stream via Spotify below Continued →

Pyramid Park - Fall On Me (Audio)

I’ve mentioned the artist known as Pyramid Park late last year and I just wanted to share one of his songs off the most recent full length “Vulnerability”. This worship centered UK based indie artist would fall somewhere between Bastille, Foster The People, We Shot the Moon, Two Door Cinema Club, and even a tad bit of Delirious. Pyramid Park’s refreshing take on faith based indie-alt-rock falls right up there with today’s hottest bands while establishing a road all their own. If you dig great music period then please give Pyramid Park a listen today. You can find “Fall On Me” in audio form, below. Purchase on bandcamp right here. Continued →
