The label describes Some Kind of Nightmare as "touring machines," as they spend at least half the year of every year over the last decade on the road. Their sound is raw, fast, and energetic. A live energy that transcends so well on record. The stage presence is felt on recording.
Subtle dark atmospheres, Industrial backgrounds, and pounding basses are also added to the table, making this album perfect and giving a great listening experience from start to finish, so hit that play button now!
My overall assessment upon hearing the album is that it is just as advertised. The first thing that comes to mind is Rock Opera. Operatic in the sense of over-the-top performance and dramatics. Anyone who has an ear for that legendary classic rock sound is sure to enjoy this record.
"During the first week of sales, all purchasers will be entered into a raffle to win the corresponding VML Live album. For example, this is DCxPC Live Vol. 5, so we will raffle off VML Live Vol. 5 Presents Sloppy Seconds. The album also includes a reversible cover, so fans can choose whether to display the class VML style or the band photo cover style."
Life has been bringing in surprising turns and changes, particularly in the recent years. But even if the changes are for the worse, there's comfort and solace found in between. Bridget Kelly Quinn's debut release was co-created with guitarist and keyboardist David Lennon, comes titled "Dead Flowers" and is home to 10 songs, which all touch a theme sprouting from her personal life, as a mother, daughter, sister and a friend. Thus, the album's 30 runtime minutes are packed with meaningful lyrics and beautiful melodies.
"One day a voice in my head said, "You must make an album based on the original planet of the ape films" I followed that voice and worked diligently to complete the album." Maybe Human
Already bolstering high praise and critical acclaim, this record is, in my opinion, one of the best independent records of 2022 amassing 50k streams and counting on Spotify. They snuck this one in right as we were closing out right before the holidays!
I Have Seen It, I Do Not Fear It starts of as a powerful heavy rock album and transforms into something completely different, as we follow Catherine Elms' emotional journey. She masterfully constructs a cinematic way to guide us through it in an original musical and lyrical sense. We experience anger, sadness, happiness and hope throughout is fourteen tracks, as we identify ourselves with its anecdotes and emotions.
"Something I’d say to first time listeners to this album try to appreciate the raw sound of the album. It was entirely intentional, and we as a band feel it represents what we actually sound like...just maybe under ideal circumstances. We put our hearts and souls into this, and we hope you can hear and feel it." Spaz of Lupis
