DownTown Mystic: Guitars are wailing and rhythms are driving on “Rock’n’Roll Romantic”

On DownTown Mystic’s latest album one can find many things, but at its core this is a rock and roll record. And it’s not just any rock record; it’s a Robert Allen record. The idea behind the musical concept of “Rock‘n’Roll Romance”, says Allen, is – “More lust than love when it comes to rockers. The relationships are more intense because the people are generally crazier than average folks. The songs come in pairs. First a song where the relationship is on shaky ground, followed by a break-up song…” Guitars are wailing and rhythms are driving on the twelve track

Sarantos: “Perfection From Every Angle” sounds like he is having a blast

Sarantos has released “Perfection From Every Angle” a new song and music video for the hot Chicago summer. It is the sort of thing that makes you want to sing and dance along, which in my case tends to annoy anyone within ear shot. There is a lyric sheet but you won’t need it as everything is very clear and unchallenging – this is escapist fun and full of positivity and good vibes. Sarantos sounds like he is having a blast, and listening to this track you’re right there with him. For anyone wondering whether a serious singer-songwriter like Sarantos is

Naro: “The Captain” – life impressed into enduring creative sensitivities

Naro, is a composer, music technologist (she earned a Master of Music in Music Technology from New York University), videographer and graphic designer based in New York. She has just released an album “The Captain”, which was very special to her, and she explains why: “Good Friday in 2014, a blood vessel of my left brain popped. After the brain hemorrhage, I wasn’t able to walk without someone’s help, and due to memory loss, I couldn’t recall how to go back home from Union Square, which I used to do every day. Not only had I lost my memory but

Squirrels-In-The-Attic-680

Squirrels In The Attic: “Blow Hard, Blow Loud, Donnie T” – an array of sharply inspired lyrics

Squirrels In The Attic is a collaboration between Emmy Award-winning lyricist/composer David M. Matthews (the other Dave Matthews) and composer/multi-instrumentalist extraordinaire, Marc Ellis. “Blow Hard, Blow Loud, Donnie T” is their first single release. And it’s a solid blow below the belt as these fellas deal out a send-up of American Presidential candidate Donald Trump. “Blow Hard, Blow Loud, Donnie T” is a refreshing breather amidst mass confusion in America. Squirrels In The Attic has combined satire, diversity, reflection, and skill to create one fine record. If nothing else it is a testament to musical exploration, into what makes the people

Roger-Cole-&-Paul-Barrere-PFS-680

Roger Cole & Paul Barrere – with “Political Freak Show” they hit their stride!

“Political Freak Show” is, at once, an artistic statement and a pure pop record. This release by Roger Cole & Paul Barrere is split between two musicians who have contrasting musical and vocal styles but have a knack for blending these styles into interesting and cohesive music creations. Here, the chemistry and talent reaches an apex and the result could turn out to be the duo’s best selling, most critically acclaimed recording so far. While Roger Cole & Paul Barrere  started out releasing purely roots, blues, rock and progressive rock music, they have been inching themselves toward more alternative song craft as

Daryl Yahudy: “Nothing Compares” – powerful vocals that flow on an inspirational tour de force

Darrell McClover aka Daryl Yahudy, a former professional athlete knows that talent without discipline can only go so far. Realizing that his true heritage and roots go back to Yarushalam in the Regions of Afrika; his pride for who he is as a yahudy from the tribe of Yahudah has taken shape. The release of his single “Joy of Yah” and the new EP “Nothing Compares” is a reflection of a new beginning. Though my only interest may be the music that an artist delivers, before I listened to Daryl Yahudy, I needed to satisfy my fascination for “tribe known as Yahudah”,

Nicki Kris: “Falling To Pieces” – the writing is so smart and thoughtful

That the way this world is being conceived is radically changing on a daily basis has become all too obvious. I haven’t heard so many conscious and apperceptive songs since the sixties and early seventies. The continual shootings, killings and terrorist attacks around the world are eventually starting to make a lasting impression in people’s minds, as well as where it matters most, their hearts. Too often in the past, devastating events have been brushed aside, because they happen to ‘other people’, other populations, and other nations. However, I am convinced that if we do not take action in changing

Sooper Vega: “Losing You” – the soulfully slow, brooding introspection is a real showcase

Sooper Vega is an American rapper, actor, and writer. Born in New York, NY, Sooper Vega moved to Providence, RI at the age of 13. Following in the footsteps of his father, he began his career as a DJ.

Sooper Vega formed “Chaos Co” after the passing of his uncle Freddy. Promising to pursue a music career and making music his uncle would have enjoyed.

Chaos Theory: A Blistering Assault On The Ears

Chaos Theory, is fronted by singer/songwriter Rock Johnson, who along with members Lex Coulstring (guitar/vocals), Scott McKenzie (lead guitar), Tim Garagan (bass) and Craig Brown (drums) complete this melodic rock and alternative metal band.

Chaos Theory’s self-titled debut album, hit stores to praiseworthy reviews and critical acclaim, and it’s easy to see why. This album is pure “energy rock”, it displays all of the band’s technical strengths, adding mature and reflective lyrics to  melodies filled with anger, frustration, a building rage, and an overall intensity. Front-man Rock Johnson adds the final ‘cherry on top’, as he tears the lyrics apart from the depths of his being.

I listened to the entire album, track-by-track, and didn’t once have the urge to switch off or skip one single song. It’s a rare thing for that to happen, so I applaud these bad-ass boys for crafting such a strong, unified debut album. The songs are all masterfully crafted, drawing on Chaos Theory’s strengths; its strong powerful vocals, dirty cranked-up amps and driving rhythm section. Many of the songs hit you like a runaway train with their powered guitar riffs.

Straight-off “Remind” is a blistering assault on the ears, and Rock Johnson confirms how uncannily close, to a mix of Ozzy Osbourne and Sammy Hagar he sounds. Likewise, “Save Yourself” and the fierce and nasty “Afterthought”, are both venomous yet catchy and downright crunchy. “Silhouette” is also a rollicking affair, and the inclusion of “Dead Inside” keeps the album’s intensity genuine. But most surprising is the swirling, brooding “Broken Dream” and “Scarred” with its dreamily powerful ambiance and melodic vocals.

Make no mistake though, most of this album is meant to please the heavy rock and metal fans who like the harder side of Chaos Theory. It contains some of the heaviest songs written, and a couple of atmospheric tracks that complement the album nicely. Moreover, the album possesses the best assets of this band; fierce, crunchy alternative-metal, representing the brutal beauty of their music, bared for all to see.

Chaos Theory leaves the best for last, as the penultimate track, “Hollow Heart”, is perhaps the most powerful, radio-ready hit song on the album. Overflowing with crunchy riffs, hooks, solos and unbridled energy; the twin guitar sound, drive this song like a hurricane, while the vocals soar high above the pounding drum- and-bass engine-room.

Chaos Theory close the album down with a solitary piano theme, almost as if to allow you to recapture your breath and runaway heartbeat, after eleven tracks of awesome power, raw energy and great musicianship.

It is clear that the angry vocals with crunching guitars, great basslines, and quick-wristed drumming are definitely going to establish this band as a rock solid outfit!
