VITNE - Encephalon (Official Music Video)

Norway’s melodic hard rock artist VITNE is back with a brand new single “Encephalon” together with a captivating new music video. This is VITNE‘s first new release since 2018’s single “Vanquish the Night“. “Encephalon” seamlessly capture’s VITNE‘s knack for anthemic choruses and thought-provoking atmosphere.

VITNE‘s 2017 award-winning album JUPITER showed a darker side to his songwriting, and “Encephlon” continues this approach, albeit differently. The new single shows an even more experimental side while continuing forward with his own unique style of melodic rock.

Surfacing in the music world in Norway in 2013, over the years VITNE has drawn comparisons to artist heavyweights, notably being described as “Billy Idol meets X Japan“. With influences ranging from 80s glam, power metal and Japanese visual kei, his music has reached fans around the globe from Brazil to Russia and Japan, celebrated for its inspirational quality and feeling of perseverance. VITNE‘s music has also been featured in the Drums Hero video game and most recently included on the fourth volume of “When in Doubt, Wolf it Out“, a tribute album series dedicated to Andrew W.K.

THE DEAD DAISIES Release 'Locked & Loaded' Covers Compilation August 23

Friday, August 23, 2019
Categories: 
THE DEAD DAISIES ARE LOCKED, LOADED AND READY TO FIRE!!
SPITFIRE MUSIC/SPV RELEASE DATE: AUGUST 23
 
The Dead Daisies pride themselves on being an ass-kicking Rock band very much of today who love to celebrate the history of amazing music. In short, the band are fans of Rock and always will be.
 
Every one of the bands albums to date has had at least one cover song on it drawn from great songs from all eras, from the early blues greats to the classic rockers and heavy-hitters of later times. So many terrific players, so many immortal words, so many larger-than-life riffs
 
"This is a ‘tip of the hat’ to our heroes, bands that influenced us when we use to buy their records as teenagers. Now we’ve put them all on one album and it seriously rocks!! You may think of us as ‘Rock Stars’ but at the end of the day we’re just huge music fans!" - John Corabi
 
This collection of covers comes together from a long list of some of our favourite tunes, some bona fide classics - or simply songs that made us all smile, sweat and scream, band and audience alike.
 
These are done Daisies style, with big guitars, big vocals and always a bit of dirt under our collective fingernails, just the way we like it which is why we always love to mix up the setlist and throw them into our live shows.
 
"Playing these songs live is a total adrenaline rush for all of us.  Our audiences go nuts with our Daisified versions of these songs that come from an incredible time in music.  It’s our way of paying homage to the ‘greats’ of rock."  - Doug Aldrich
 
So crank them up as they work better with generous amounts of volume and a huge smile on your face. After all, a great song is a great song.  Rock is Indeed alive and well ..
 
Released on August 23rd, 2019, it comes in a suite of formats including DigiPak CD, Colored Vinyl with CD in paper sleeve, digital download and streaming.

The next EDGE OF FOREVER album ”Native Soul” will be released on December 6, 2019. Ahead of the release, the song "Take Your Time", was released - a tribute to Marcel Jacob, who passed away 10 years ago today. The song will appear on the new album.
 
Here’s a message from Alessandro Del Vecchio about the song:
 
"It's no secret that Marcel Jacob was essential to my career. Who knows my story is aware of how close Marcel and I were. He was my mentor and my friend and I wouldn't be here if he didn't take the bet on me and Edge Of Forever 16 years ago. I was just a punk from Italy but he listened to a demo I gave him at a concert and invested his time and talent on our music. I still cherish the times we spent in the studio, on the road and those sessions with Jeff Scott Soto who joined us for the recordings. On July 21st 2009 we were all hit by the sad news of his passing and still today that void is impossible to fill. I still believe Marcel has been the unsung hero of our genre, genius player, writer, producer and a very loyal friend. I always felt I was never able to find a way to thank him enough but I think he would be proud of seeing where I am today. "Take Your Time" is my letter to Marcel, a letter a friend who changed my life and my carrier. Thank you Marre, I hope you really found your peace of mind, wherever you are now. We miss you!"
