Double Elvis - Vampyre Songs

Artist: 
Double Elvis
Release: 
Vampyre Songs
Label: 
Echozone

"Vampyre Songs" seems to be a teaser for the upcoming Double Elvis album. This French duo though give us more than an ep here,as this release contains some videos as well.A quite interesting and obvious remark would be that they have borrowed their name from Andy Warhol's painting of the same theme.
This reference alone creates a somewhat  peculiar sense regarding the sounds contained within.The formula mostly used here,is a mix of indie rock along with some punk and goth parts.Something that works quite well for them,I think.

Zerozonic - God Damn, Better Best

Zerozonic
Release: 
God Damn, Better Best
Label: 
Mayhem Music

“God Damn, Better Best” is the second album for this Norwegian band called Zerozonic, formed among others by Blood Red Throne (Daniel Olaisen) and Tristania members (Ole Vistness).

Nine different songs that fly between some progressive rythms , the Grunge of the 90´s, classic heavy metal and modern thrash. A cool and fresh sound inspired by such great bands of the past as Alice in Chains, Pantera, Sepultura or even another more contemporary ones as Avenged Sevenfold.

Bionic - Close To Nature

Artist: 
Bionic
Release: 
Close To Nature
Label: 
Echozone

Upon first seeing the cover of this cd,I have to mention that I expected something else:something heathen maybe,something of a quiet ambiance perhaps.Looks can be deceiving though and exactly that is the case here:what Bionic delivers is a typical,Teutonic form of ebm/synthpop.A sound that is really popular at clubs,especially in Germany,nowadays.Bionic is a one-man project,created by Dariusch Dalili.His take on ebm is a rather old-school approach,with hints that reveal some close ties to synth pop.

Artist: 
Vangelis Yalamas’ Jazzment Day
Release: 
A Brand New World
Label:

Vangelis Yalamas’ latest effort is a musical blend of many musical genres all compiled together in ten exceptional songs which were originally composed for the third Fragile Vastness album but the direction the music was taking Vangelis Yalamas was something more than just progressive rock so ‘Jazzment Day’ was born to appease vangelis’ need for  more.
