The modern hard rock band SEVENTH VEIL from Verona (Italy) pleases their fans with a new video and a new album release!
After releasing their first EP (“Nasty Skin”) in 2012, they gained attention also beyond the Italian borders and collected fans as well as positive feedback from several international countries. With a new line-up they decided to enter the studio again in 2014 to work on their new album which has now been published under the name “VOX ANIMAE“. With this album the band is presenting itself with a matured sound that resembles modern hard rock bands like Guns N’ Roses, Motley Crue, Sixx A:M or Pop Evil, which the band is listing as their personal influences.

To get an idea about the band’s music we highly recommend you to watch their latest music video “LIVING DEAD” (produced by Tommy Antonini) which has been released just a few days ago:
It’s a good day for rock’n’roll: the promising Italian Hard’n’Heavy/Street/Melodic Hard Rock band “MR. RIOT” released their first official music video today!
MR. RIOT are:
Stevie Lee (Lead Voice-Keytar)
Mr. LadiesMan (Guitar Lead-Rhythm/Choirs)
Angeless (Guitar Lead-Rhythm/Choirs)
Denny Riot (Drum-2 Voice)
The band was found in winter 2013 by Angel & Denny, who after breaking up with their previous bands, were looking for a new way to keep their passion for the 80’s American hard/sleazy music alive. With the other three members added a bit later, they eagerly started to work on the first songs of Mr. Riot which should be brought on stage as soon as possible. Why? Because the stage is where the five passionate musicians are able to express their unstoppable energy in the best way. Their outstanding rock attitude brought them a lot of positive feedback after several shows in their area. In the last months the guys were busy with capturing exactly this power and passion for the recording of their debut album “Same Old Town”, which is planned to be released in early 2016.
Time to let the music talk – here it is: “America”!
NMP: Eric, it’s nice to talk to you again! It’s already our second interview together and I’m sure also this time you have many things to tell us. From what I could see from your latest postings on various social media accounts you seem to go through a tough period of your life lately. So first of all, how do you feel?
FL: I mentioned briefly on Facebook and Instagram in a post about weight loss that I was going through some rough times. I recently went through a breakup. So I’m dealing with the emotions of that at the moment. I’ve seen better days.
NMP: You also post many updates which come directly from the studio. Can you tell us what you’ve been working on lately?
FL: We’ve been working on new mixes of the thirteen songs available on Soundcloud. I felt I wanted to go back and adjust some things. So that’s been keeping me busy for a long time now.
NMP: What are the differences between the old and the new versions of your songs?
FL: There won’t be a big difference between the new mixes and the old ones but there are some new things such as synths, melodies, vocals and effects. I feel that these new mixes are an improvement.
NMP: You did a couple of Q&A videos lately. How important is the direct contact with people who listen to your music? Do the interaction and their feedback have an impact on your work?
FL: Having a good relationship with the fans is very important. Their support means everything. I’ve become good friends with several of them. Positive feedback is always very uplifting. It makes the hard work worth it knowing that people appreciate what you do. Especially now that I’m dealing with a recent breakup. The fact that people enjoy my music is comforting in a way.
NMP: When you think about the future, what are your next plans for Foghorn Lonesome?
FL: The new mixes will be done in a couple of weeks and will be available for streaming and download. I’m still trying to get a band together. The goal is to play live but without other people it won’t be possible. I have some photoshoots planned for some promotional pictures and there might be new music video coming in the future. I plan on making some videos later about various things too. I will also be contacting record labels to see if there’s any interest in taking things further. I’ve had some offers already. The music industry is in bad shape these days. So we will see what happens. Foghorn Lonesome is just me. I do everything myself and I try to make things happen as quickly as I can but there are limitations to what I can do. Hopefully 2016 with be a good year for Foghorn Lonesome.

Bogotá (Colombia) – based rock band DANTE come up with some good news for their followers – a couple of new releases are on the way!
But before we talk about details, let’s go back to the roots (for the ones who don’t know this band yet).
The band consists of 5 members: Kami (vocals), Gonzo (guitar), Alexx (guitar), Carlos (bass) and GG (drums).
Everything started when a couple of high school buddies who were crazy about old school rock n roll, comic books and Finnish/Scandinavian bands realized how tired they were of what they saw on MTV and heard on the radio. So they simply decided to create their own version of everything they liked. The result of this plan was “something visual, chaotic, artistic, grotesque & beautiful”. In 2008 they put up first demos which soon got attention from people outside Colombia. Their home town Bogota has always had a very important impact on their music style.
Singer Kami: “A lot of people who don’t know much about our country usually think it’s all palm trees and sandy beaches but Bogota ain’t like that. First off, it doesn’t have a beach and it’s really high up in altitude which makes it a somewhat cold weather city. It’s more like Seattle, dark and rainy and cold. I think it’s been relevant to our sound, the influence of the city. It’s very new yorkish in some areas but New York kinda like in the 70’s with that gritty look”.
Recently they’ve been working on the second studio album “Gunblade Blues”, which has the aim to capture the band’s wild live-energy.
Here’s a lil’ preview of the upcoming music:
“We recorded everything that has influenced us from rockabilly to an 8 minute epic song with lightning in the background and much more. It’s basically an album that takes you on an adventure done old school style. We’re doing a piece of artistic venture for each one of the songs, including different types of videos & hopefully by the last quarter of the year a comic book on our website that goes with one of the songs.”
The album will be released in three triplets throughout the year. In this way, DANTE wants to give every single song an opportunity. By the end of the year they might release a Vinyl with everything they have recorded so far (some special tracks included).
