AUDIO: Soulpete featuring Oddisee’s “Rhymes On Random”

You may not be familiar yet with Soulpete but you may know who Oddisee is. Good, because Oddisee finds his way within a new album by Soulpete called Soul Raw (Et Records Ltd.) and true to his name and the title of the album, he’s very much about reaching the soul with his lyrics and flow.


VIDEO: Wolf’s “Shark Attack”

The strength of heavy metal is stronger than ever and when you hear Wolf’s “Shark Attack”, you will definitely get flashbacks to a lot of classic metal from the 80’s, everyone from W.A.S.P. to Testament, E-Z-O to Megadeth and beyond. You may find this song on Wolf’s album Devil Seed (Century Media).


VIDEO: Gus G. featuring Mats Levén’s “Blame It On Me”

My way is the only way” is a lyric you’ll hear in the glorious new song by guitarist Gus G. called “Blame It On Me”, which also features vocalist Mats Levén. This is taken from his Century Media album, I Am The Fire. The song is nice and heavy with a pop touch, may this become a hit for one and all.


VIDEO: Eluveitie’s “The Call Of The Mountains”

When you’re up in the mountains, what do you think of? What do you listen to? For the folks in Eluveitie, you may await a call, and that’s what they did in their new song from their latest album, Origins (Nuclear Blast), to be released next week Tuesday (August 5th).


VIDEO: Bitchin Bajas’ “Bueu”

Taking a look at the “Bueu” video by Bitchen Bajas, you might think it’s fairly pointless: different colors and textures that look like nothing more than television distortion. Maybe that’s the point: get into the music first, immerse yourself in it and forget what you see, concentrate on what you hear. Make it happen. The song will find its way on their self-titled new album on Drag City.

Speaking of cities, you’ll be able to see them in or near your city next month, and in Europe in October.
