Tehnični death metal napad na Orto Bar
Kaj vam pade na pamet, ko pomislite na Kanado? Javorjev sirup? Hokej? Šale Ala Bundyja? Mogoče pa glasbeno - Voivod? Ne, vi ste gotovo za Gorguts. Ne? Ste bolj za Cryptopsy, Archspire, Neuraxis, Augury in podobne? Potem gotovo poznate Beyond Creation!
Beyond Creation so - čeprav aktivni od leta 2005 - danes eden močnejših sinonimov za tehnični death metal. Brutalni so, hitri so, pojejo o zadevah, ki so nad povprečnostjo ''gore n horror'' ali ''serial killers'' besedil (torej, so bolj družbeno-kritično, psevdo-spiritualni in še kaj), v živo pa zvenijo prekleto dobro! Kaj dobro - odlično! Še pomnite njihov lanski nastop z Obscuro? And than some! Zasluženo headlinerski nastop v Orto Baru vas bo prikoval na tla. Ali pa pognal v manijakalni moshpit.
Če pa ste redno prisotni v novostih tech-death scene, potem gotovo veste, da tudi Švica ni od muh. Resda nas je ta država že od nekdaj navduševala s progresivci, kot so Coroner, Celtic Frost, Messiah, ali pa brutalci kot Omophagia, a zdaj se neprestano govori samo o enem bendu - Virvum. Če so ime dobili po motivu iz zadnjih dveh Deeds Of Flesh plošč, ne vem - se pa gotovo vidi, da med drugim črpajo tudi pri njih. Ampak - Virvum se poleg surovosti kalifornijskega brutal death metala bolj poslužujejo progresivnosti Cynic, tehničnosti Necrophagia in nalezljivosti vseh dobrih švedskih bendov a la At The Gates ali pa zgodnejši Soilwork.
22. junij je četrtek. V življenju povprečnežev čisti dolgčas - v življenju poznavalcev tehničnega death metala največji letošnji praznik!


BEYOND CREATION

Bio:
Beyond CreationBeyond Creation was formed in 2005 in Montreal, Canada by Simon Girard (guitar/vocals) and Nicolas Domingo Viotto (guitar). For the first few years, they worked on their music without the right musicians to turn the project into a live band. In 2008, Guyot Begin-Benoit joined as the drummer while Nicolas left the to be replaced by Kevin Chartré (Brought by Pain, Unhuman), a good friend. Beyond Creation was ready to hit the stage in 2010, when Dominic "Forest" Lapointe (Ex-Quo Vadis, Augury, Teramobil, Ex-Atheretic), completed the formation with his six-string fretless bass.
A year later, the band self-released their debut full-length album "The Aura", which became a highlight in the genre. Since then, Beyond Creation has been known as the progressive, innovative and exciting new metal sound of their homeland, Quebec. Blazing their own trail through hard work, originality and a fresh perspective on the metal scene, their fanbase kept growing as fast as their will to push the boundaries of the style. In late 2012, the band had Philippe Boucher (Ex-First Fragment, Incandescence, Chthe'ilist, Décombres) take Guyot's place on drums.
They joined Season Of Mist Record Label in 2013, re-releasing "The Aura" touring North America on the Decibel Magazine Tour with giants Cannibal Corpse, Napalm Death and Immolation and in Japan with Sweden’s Vomitory. In 2014, they performed several shows, festivals and tours in US/Canada. Their second album, ‘’Earthborn Evolution’’ was released towards the end of the year, right before their Australian tour direct supporting Ne Obliviscaris and their second time in Japan with Mors Principium Est on a sold out tour.
The next year started with the addition of Hugo Doyon-Karout (Brought by Pain, Equipoise, Conflux Collective) as the new bassist. Always looking to increase their visibility and fanbase, they embarked on the Summer Slaughter Tour in support of Arch Enemy, Born of Osiris, Veil of Maya, The Acacia Strain and Cattle Decapitation. Beyond Creation also played the large-scale summer festivals; Heavy MTL and Amnesia Rockfest and ended the year touring with heavy weights; Hate Eternal and Misery Index. In early 2016, they got featured at the largest music trade show, NAMM, representing their partnership with Strandberg guitars. They then headlined their first appearance in Mexico, which included a sold out show in Mexico City and just got back from their first shows in Eastern Canada with Gorod.
Catch them on the road on the recently announced North American Tours and stay tuned, Beyond Creation will continue to crush the metal scene and have more international tours to announce this year!

Brazilske crossover thrash/hardcore/punk legende prihajajo v Kranj!
Skupaj s Trainstation Subart bomo naredili tudi cenejši paket vstopnic 29.6. D.R.I - Kranj, SI - Trainstation Subart + 3.7. Ratos de Porao, ki bo 22 evrov - bo pa količina teh vstopnic omejena!
Samo nekaj dni po tem, ko si bomo še lizali rane po nedvomno odličnem koncertu crossover legend D. R. I., bodo Trainstation Subart napadli Brazilci Ratos De Porao. Gre za enega legendarnih bendov, ki je poleg Sarcofago – torej, pred Sepulturo! – ponesel glas o močni in udarni ter iskreni brazilski sceni daleč po svetu, predvsem s prvencem Crucificados Pela Sistema. Z uspehom Sepulture so logično tudi RDP pristali pod okriljem kultne založbe Roadrunner, kjer je izšla kultna plošča Anarkophobia ali pa še bolj kultna Brazil, a ta vez ni trajala dolgo.
A če bi sklepali, da je brazilski napad zaradi tega potihnil, ali pa celo – poniknil, se motite. Ratos De Porao so ostali aktivni pod okriljem manjših založb, a zvesti samo sebi in sledeč samo lastnim ciljem iz leta v leto postajali bolj udarni in bolj nevarni. Vedno družbeno kritični, brez dlake na jeziku, seveda v portugalščini so Ratosi napadali po celem svetu, nekajkrat pa tudi v Sloveniji. Vokalist Gordo, bobnar Boka, kitarist Jӓo in basist Juninh so že od začetka thrash pomešali s hardcorom, nato tudi s crustom in grindom, pri tem pa so z leti samo še pridobili na moči. Kdor pomni recimo njihov napad na Koper leta 1998 ali pa celo napad na Kranj leta 2009 (skupaj z Municipal Waste v zdaj šminkerskem Bazenu), ve, da gre za bend brez primere in da so njihovi koncerti norišnica!
3. julija bo kaos v Trainstation Squatu – koncert, ki ga ne gre zamuditi!


RATOS DE PORÃO

Bio:
Ratos de PorãoRatos de Porão is one of the most important Brazilian punk rock bands, being the punk rock enthusiasts who propelled the advent of Brazilian rock in the '80s in São Paulo. Appreciated in Europe, they recorded their albums Brasil and Anarkophobia in Berlin, Germany. The group was formed in 1981 by friends who used to hang out at the Punk Rock Discos record store in São Paulo. Their earliest performance for a major audience was in 1982 at the First Punk Festival of São Paulo, aka O Começo do Fim Do Mundo (The Beginning of the End of the World). In that same year, they participated on the collection Sub. After vocalist João Gordo joined the group in 1984, they gradually abandoned their die-hard punk approach for hardcore and then, in 1987 (Vivendo Cada Dia Mais Sujo e Agressivo) to a heavy metal crossover. Also in 1984, they released their first solo album, Crucificados Pelo Sistema. In 1985, they shared a live album with Cólera, and appeared on a British collection of punk bands from around the world, World Class Punk. Having one of the biggest discographies of the Brazilian punk bands, Ratos de Porão were paid tribute in 1998 when several other punk groups, like Verminose, Anões de Jardim, Gangrena Gasosa, and Poindexter recorded their songs on the CD Traidô.

Prihaja poletje in mosh beach party z Deez Nutsin Obey the Brave
Že zdaj je vroče, kako bo šele poleti. Gotovo precej, še bolj pa bo tudi zaradi tega, ker se v Ljubljano 10. julija vračata zasedbi Deez Nuts ter Obey The Brave.
Deez Nuts so norci iz Avstralije, ki beat-down HC mešajo z odličnim humorjem, metalsko težino in z raperskim pridihom. V Sloveniji so bili že parkrat, njihovi koncerti pa so vedno prava norišnica. Zunaj imajo tudi novo plato, kateri bomo lahko prisluhnili na odru Gala Hale na Metelkovi.
Ob boku Deez Nuts pa bodo tudi kultni manijaki Obey The Brave, eno bolj zvenečih imen svetovne metalcore scene. Prihajajo iz Kanade, in šopajo zmešano po kanadsko. Vodi jih Alex Erian iz Despised Icon. Junija bodo izdali album Mad Season, ki bo izšel prek založbe Epitaph.
Boj proti vročini je le eden - in sicer je to nori Mosh Beach Party.


DEEZ NUTS

Bio:
Deez Nuts“Everyday I never stray from the path that I’ve chosen
never cared I’m the loose thread, in the tapestry this world has woven
Gravitate towards the ones, who share a like mind.
If that ain’t you stay out my lane ill stay out yours we’ll be fine.”

Everything about Deez Nuts and their frontman / founder, JJ Peters, can almost be simplified down to these four lines. It is tucked away towards the back of their new and third album ‘Bout It’, which is without any doubt the best record their now infamous career. And the track, “Live Your Life”, just reiterates the point that the haters seem to miss, but also that makes the true fan love them more with every fist pumping anthem they produce. The point is that Deez Nuts are gonna do things their way and they don’t give a fuck if you disagree.
The four piece finally has it’s most stable line up in years – JJ Peters is joined by fellow Australian Jon Green on bass, while Mat “Realbad” Rogers and Alex Salinger (both from New York City) play Guitar and Drums, respectively. The lineup has been together for the better part of two years after a slew of short and long stays by members from all over the world – all of whom are part of JJ’s crew of international like minded friends who have been down for the ride at one time or another.
The Deez Nuts back story is anything but secret for anyone in the know, but it’s a history lesson worth retelling now that we are seven years deep. In 2005, the highly influential metalcore band I Killed The Prom Queen had broken up, and it’s founding member JJ Peters decided to do something new to kill his time. He wrote and recording every instrument on a few tracks and filled it with tongue-in-cheek truth bombs about anything that crossed his mind. At the time, it was a fun one-off project for him to speak his mind and do something his friends would enjoy. But the catchy lyrics and big New York Hardcore riffs had an edge to them that no one expected, and lyrics about sex, brotherhood and drinking had people talking right away.
Not long after that, when Peters released the tracks as the ‘Rep Your Hood’ EP and featured himself on the cover drinking liquor amongst a host of tasteful women, the polarising Deez Nuts project really got it’s legs. Peters put together a makeshift band full of friends from other groups, and took the show on the road, and before long what was once a bit of fun became more like a shitload of fun – a full time, worldwide touring act that released anthems and united everyone. Different members came and went, playing this tour and that, while JJ pumped out two albums (2008′s ‘Stay True’ and 2010′s ‘This One’s For You’) between tours. Each album kept the same theme running – expanding on his lyrical thoughts, letting the music and words do the talking and making sure anyone who felt the same way as him had anthems to scream while they got through their lives.
The music has been pumped out, and the tours have been non-stop – hitting all over the world in small rooms and massive venues. From Europe to Asia to the USA and of course Australia, Deez Nuts has crammed into vans and played hundreds upon hundreds of shows with some of the best hardcore bands of all time. Friendships have grown all over the world and thousands of tattoos inspired by the band and it’s own subculture-within-a-subculture have been inked from Russia to California to Indonesia and everywhere in between.
Six years later, Deez Nuts in it’s current form is the same thing it always has been. It’s candid lyrics that say whatever they want. It’s fun shit and songs that are simple and catchy, but original in their unrelenting ability to catch your attention. It’s fist-pumping, free-thinking hardcore that embraces everything it cares to embrace. And it’s empowering to anyone who feels like they don’t want to walk the same walk with everyone else.
But this time around there IS a difference. It’s that ‘Bout It’ is the most amount of energy and time Deez Nuts has put in to making that classic record to make their mark with. The now full-time members have all added their talents, and producer Shane Frisby has taken the time to make sure the sound is as heavy as shit for the fans. Peters and his Band of Brothers have even enlisted help in the form of guest appearances from everyone from Architects to Madball to Suicide Silence to Hatebreed and many more.
From party songs like the already released singles “Band Of Brothers” and “Shot After Shot”, to anthems inspired by a life of living your own dreams in “Keep On” and the previously quoted “Live Your Life” and even some skits and public service announcements friends inside the now massive Deez Nuts family – all of it makes up an album that is set to go down as one of the coolest hardcore records of the modern era.
And in case you were wondering what they think if you disagree, here is some words directed to the haters.
“So kill the bitchin and listen, you cant you deny that we’re on fire.
If your rebuttal is muddled, its cause my IQ is higher.
Be lying if i said i gave fuck regardless,
for every 1 that hates 100 adore us, we are unfuckwithable!”

OBEY THE BRAVE

Bio:
Obey the BraveIn the years since the phrase, “that which does not kill us makes us stronger” was first attributed to German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche, it’s become something of a tired cliché. But to an underground band like OBEY THE BRAVE, relentlessly touring the world’s clubs, against obstacles great and small, the maxim still carries the weight of reality. Like the best of the heavy metallic hardcore bands in rock music history, OBEY THE BRAVE embodies Nietzsche’s stark sentiments with furious musical determination.
OBEY THE BRAVE churns out anthems of empowerment born of adversity. It’s the songs that embolden the spirit and exorcise personal demons, whether in the pit or on a day’s commute. Songs like “Raise Your Voice,” “Full Circle,” and “Get Real” are quintessential metalcore bangers.
Mad Season, the band’s diverse and defiant third album, arrives after the most turbulent period of the group’s career. Yet as vocalist Alex Erian puts it with appropriately blunt eloquence: “We’re back stronger than ever.”
Since forming just a handful of years ago in their native Canada, OBEY THE BRAVE has toured the world alongside fellow modern metalcore genre standard bearers like The Amity Affliction, Whitechapel, Blessthefall, Chelsea Grin, Emmure, All Shall Perish, We Came As Romans, and Miss May I, forging meaningful relationships with each audience, show after show.
A series of hardships and obstacles followed the release of the group’s well-received sophomore album, Salvation (2014), which built upon the early promise Young Blood (2012). Both are albums full of raw crunch, sincere attitude, metallic bite, and unadulterated adrenaline. The group weathered two lineup changes, a string of bad luck with an overseas promoter, and a series of false starts in the studio before finally emerging with Mad Season, the band’s most focused, ambitious, and urgently visceral album thus far.
Songs like “Drama,” “The Distance,” and “Rest in Peace” (one of two Mad Season songs delivered entirely in the band’s native French) are packed with power derived as much from real life emotion as huge power chords.
Named for the tumultuous period of its creation, Mad Season is a truly collaborative effort musically and lyrically. Joining shortly into the touring cycle for Salvation, Terrence McAuley (guitar) and Cory Wilson (bass) gelled instantly with original members Erian, John Campbell (guitar), and Stevie Morotti (drums). McAuley also served as co-producer, alongside engineer and mixer Dean Hadjichristou, who has worked with Obey The Brave’s fellow Canadians Protest The Hero and labelmates Parkway Drive.
When it came time to record vocals, Erian reunited with longtime collaborator Antoine Lussier, whose Ion Dissonance bandmate, Kevin McCaughey, guests on “The Distance.” “RIP” features French Canadian rap group Loud Lary Ajust, capturing the party element the band often brings in the live setting.
“Drama” boasts a guest appearance from Steve Marois of Erian’s other band the semi-recently reformed deathcore pioneers Despised Icon.
“I grew up in the death metal scene but Obey The Brave has always been my outlet to explore other aspects of my musical roots and passions,” Erian explains. “Now that Despised Icon is back, I have that outlet for really heavy extreme music, so I can explore with Obey The Brave even more now.”
Mad Season demonstrates a true artistic evolution for the band. Part of that progression includes the introduction of singing vocals alongside the genre’s traditional screaming. This isn’t “emo” crooning, however; it’s much more akin to the raspy declarations of Rise Against and old-school punk.
“We stepped out of our comfort zone with this record,” Erian says. “We didn’t want to put out the same record three times in a row. I spent an entire year trying to perfect my singing. There’s still a lot of screaming on the album, but it was really important for me artistically to try something different and give it my all. It’s very exciting to try to reinvent yourself.”
A mission statement of sorts for OBEY THE BRAVE is right there in the title track: “We all want it / it’s our passion / we’re all lost in the right direction.”
“Sometimes when you’re facing these obstacles, you’re like, ‘why am I still here? Why am I doing this in the first place? Should I get back to the regular nine-to-five and try to get some security?’” Erian confesses. “But this is who I am. This is what I do. This is who we are. We just can’t help ourselves. That’s why ‘though we may feel ‘lost,’ we are lost in the right direction.”
Ultimately each and every step along the way for OBEY THE BRAVE has been worth it, because indeed, “that which does not kill us…” Or to quote another fitting well-known proverb: “nothing ventured, nothing gained.”
“In a weird twisted way I’m thankful for everything it took to get this record made because it all tested our commitment to the band and we’re still here, you know, we’re still swinging,” says Erian. “The bottom line is, we put so much of ourselves into Mad Season and the music speaks for itself.”

Vrnitev ameriških volkov
Po dolgem času se na odre nasploh, kaj šele v Slovenijo vračajo prvaki nove dobe black metala, Wolves In The Throne Room.
Brata Weaver sta dobro desetletje nazaj ustanovila bend, ki črpa iz repetitivnih, hipnotičnih in hladnih black metalskih viž, a tudi bend, ki je kolektiv ljudi, ki živi v skladu z naravo, jemlje od nje in ji daje nazaj, prenaša njen Duh v svojo glasbo in sporočila, praktično bend, ki je s svojimi albumi in verjetno skupaj s skupino Agalloch botroval zadnjemu valu black metala, post black metalu. Čeprav od Wolves In The Throne Room ne pričakujte black shoegazea v stilu Alcest ali speed-metal-hiking-punka v stilu Darkthrone, kaj šele eksperimenta v stilu Enslaved, pa pričakujte bend, ki je vztrajno, a tiho premaknil meje žanra daleč v širino. Njihovi nastopi so prava spiritualna izkušnja, minimalni v osvetljenosti prostora, a maksimalni v čutenju zvoka in duha, odlično pa tudi prenašajo tisto dušo, ki jo formirajo albumi, kot so Diadem Of 12 Stars, Celestial Lineage ter kultna Two Hunters in Black Cascade.
Njihova vrnitev v Kino Šiška na petek 4. avgusta bo dogodek, ki bo spremenil vaše življenje v vseh pogledih.
Vstopnice so že na voljo!


WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM

Bio:
Wolves In The Throne RoomSince their inception, Wolves In The Throne Room have continually pushed the boundaries of metal, both musically and philosophically. While other bands may have followed their lead, their idiosyncratic take on the genre feels unique, expansive and connected to the primal forces of their native Pacific Northwest.
WITTR was formed in Olympia, WA in 2003 by Aaron and Nathan Weaver (drums and guitar respectively). Their signature cascading layers of guitar, howling vocals and pounding blast beats bely a wide range of influence including Black Metal, Funeral Doom, Death Metal, Crust, Goth, Dark Ambient and Folk. Visually and lyrically they have explored themes of death, ancient mythologies, heathen lore and the Cascadian wilderness, while the name itself evokes the image of wild creatures destroying the world.
Their first full length LP–the raw, analog Diadem of the 12 Stars (2006, re-issued in 2016) was recorded by the duo and second guitarist Rick Dahlin on a shoestring budget at Louder Studios in San Francisco by Tim Green (Nation of Ulysses). It prominently features guest vocalists, a recurring trend for WITTR; in this case Jamie Myers (Hammers of Misfortune), who recorded whilst nine months pregnant, and Dino Sommese (Asunder / Dystopia).
In 2007 the band signed with Southern Lord and released Two Hunters, the start of a loose trilogy and their first collaboration with producer Randall Dunn (also known for his work with Sunn O))), Earth etc…) and Persian classical singer Jessika Kenney. A combination of depressive metal, tribal dirges, dark ambient, acoustic folk and sacred choral music, it has been described by Aaron as ”a mythic prehistory of sorts. The lyrical themes and ideas we were thinking about while writing and recording were tied to a past that was lost and hidden, something that felt inaccessible to us.”
Black Cascade was formulated as a mirror image to this, where Two Hunters is intentionally moonlit and smoky... A void-like representation of the chaotic, Dionysian side. Black Cascade is solar and Apollonian, almost patriarchal. The two records balance each other—the horned god as opposed to the goddess. Will Lindsay replaced Rick Dahlin on guitar for these sessions and the accompanying EP Malevolent Grain.
Completing the trilogy was 2011’s Celestial Lineage. Composed entirely by the two Weavers, it featured their widest array of collaborators including Aaron Turner (Isis, Sumac, Old Man Gloom) and the return of Jessika Kenney. Thematically, the record saw WITTR turn their gaze skyward and encapsulate an astral energy. Using visualization techniques, they wrote music focused on vivid imagery. Orienting attention upwards towards the heavens rather than downward towards the bowels of the Earth.
Considering Celestial Lineage the natural end of an era for the band, they wound down touring and retreated from public life in early 2012 to concentrate on non-musical endeavors; Aaron’s son was born & Nathan opened a venue in Olympia.
In 2014 they returned quietly, launching their own label, Artemisia, in order to take complete creative control of their art & business dealings. Their first release was Celestite, an ambient and experimental companion piece to Celestial Lineage. It used for its basis the analog synths buried deep in Celestial Lineage’s atmospherics. Forefronting an atmospherically nuanced side of the band that has oft been overlooked.
They are currently writing new material for an as yet unnamed new LP.

Oktobrska luč v temi
Dnevi se bodo umaknili nočem, toplota hladu, smeh resnobnemu razpoloženju, sonce dežju in veter megli. A ni vse tako sivo, pa čeprav bomo že skorajda v novembru. Kajti luč bodo prinesli legendarni angleški mračnjaki Anathema.
Anathema so ob My Dying Bride in Paradise Lost bili znani kot del svete angleške doom 'n' gloom trojice. A sčasoma so svoje videnje sveta in prikazovanje le-tega skozi glasbo prenesli daleč čez meje žanra ter postali entiteta, ki ji svoje čase ni bilo para in katero so, dostikrat neuspešno, skušali kopirati drugi. Anathema so, preprosto povedano, svetovno znano glasbeno telo, kateremu se klanjajo mnogi in to z razlogom. Letos junija bodo to dokazali z albumom The Optimist, ki bo bojda njihov najbolj mračen in najbolj kompleksen, njihov koncert v Kinu Šiška pa bo oktobrski mrak prežel tako s temo kot s svetlobo.
Za svetlobo bodo namreč poskrbeli francoski Alcest, ki so pot začeli kot black metal bend, a so sčasoma postali nekaj popolnoma drugega. Danes je v njihovi glasbi moč razbrati zapuščino black metala, prepleteno z zasanjanostjo shoegazea, močjo ambientalnega post black metala in kompleksnostjo kakšnih prog bendov. Nazadnje smo jih videli z Japonci Mono v Novi Gorici in pred tem na festivalu Metaldays, kjer so ob nastopu na tisto deževno sredo pregnali oblake, oder pa je blagoslovilo sonce.
Vsekakor je jesen lepa in mračna hkrati, prav tak obraz pa bo kazal 22. oktober 2017 v Kinu Šiška, ko bosta oder zasedli zasedbi Anathema in Alcest. Tega ne smete zamuditi!
Vstopnice kmalu na voljo.


ANATHEMA

Bio:
AnathemaAfter Anathema’s 2012 award-winning album Weather Systems and 2014’s spellbinding Distant Satellites, the ambient rockers are back with their eleventh full-length, The Optimist. Due for release on 9th June through Kscope The Optimist will soon reveal some of the darkest, most challenging and unexpected music the sextet have put their name to.
Anathema, led by brothers Daniel and Vincent Cavanagh, along with drummer John Douglas, singer Lee Douglas, bassist Jamie Cavanagh and drummer/keyboardist Daniel Cardoso began recording The Optimist in the winter of 2016 at Attica Audio in Donegal, Ireland and then finished at Castle Of Doom studios in Glasgow with producer Tony Doogan [Mogwai, Belle & Sebastian, Super Furry Animals] at the helm. Vincent elaborates on Doogan’s influence on the recording process “he suggested that we record as a live band, which we hadn’t done for years. Having played a few tunes on the last tour, we were ready for that. Tony wanted to capture that energy you can only get with everyone facing each other… it makes a big difference. He was a superb guy to work with and I learned a lot making this record”
The idea for The Optimist was born from the front cover artwork of the band’s 2001 album A Fine Day To Exit Daniel Cavanagh explains “I suppose you might say the album is semi-autobiographical because this time we used a surrogate,” he says, of the character that is The Optimist “We put sound, feelings and crucially, our own hopes and fears into another person and made him the subject of the songs then weaving my own internal monologue into the narrative of The Optimist. It was John’s idea to write a narrative, so I took A Fine Day To Exit as the starting point”. Vincent elaborates further on the earlier album’s artwork influence “The guy who disappeared – you never knew what happened to him, did he start a new life? Did he succumb to his fate? It was never explained. The opening track title is the exact coordinates for Silver Strand beach in San Diego – the last known location of The Optimist – shown on the cover of A Fine Day to Exit.
To continue the theme further, the band brought back designer and illustrator Travis Smith to create the artwork for The Optimist. The artwork was created from a series of photographs Smith took on a West Coast road trip.
With the character’s unresolved destiny the three song writing members, meticulously brought the unfinished story to an end – and most strikingly of all – one which is decided by the listener.

ALCEST

Bio:
AlcestAlcest - Music from another world.
Alcest was founded in the year 2000 by songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Neige (aka. Stéphane Paut) and later joined by drummer Winterhalter (Jean Deflandre) in 2009. Labeled as post metal/shoegaze or “blackgaze”, Alcest were the pioneers within this genre, crafting a unique sound based on musical opposites from their very first EP “Le Secret” (2005), and thru their full length releases “Souvenirs D'Un Autre Monde” (2007), “Écailles De Lune” (2010) and “Les Voyages De L'Ame” (2012). In 2014 their fourth album “Shelter” was released, marking the band's departure from the more metal sound, in favor of dream-pop aesthetics, surprising and somewhat challenging their fan base. In retrospective, the album opened new doors for Alcest, bringing them an audience from different horizons and a positive sense of unpredictability as musicians.
Over the years, Alcest influenced a lot of other artists and gained a significant popularity around the world, leading them to do several tours all over Europe, North America, South America, Asia and Australia.
"Kodama" (2016), the upcoming fifth album by Alcest marks the French duo's ferocious return to the epic and contrasted style of its early works while continuing the band's relentless pursuit for fresh ideas. Combining poetic elements with darker ones, that were not present in Alcest’s earlier works, “Kodama” manifests as an intense album, featuring a more organic, punchy sound and showcasing impulses from an array of different places.
Originally triggered by Hayao Miyazaki's anime film "Princess Mononoke", "Kodama" picks up on the fate of its protagonist and, at its core, deals with the sensation of not belonging; of living in between worlds, be it city and nature, the physical and spiritual one. By giving the album a cultural, stylistic and compositional narrative, Neige and Winterhalter keep "Kodama" from just being the latest improvement on the Alcest sound and instead make the album a most rare and exciting thing: a vital, relevant record from a front runner that not only upholds the band's trailblazing legacy, but actually makes you want to see where they go next.

Metal noč čarovnic!
Zakaj bi 31. 10. bili zgolj našemljeni v grozovito masko in se prepuščali le tipičnim DJ zabavam, ko lahko s tako masko brez težav greste na metal koncert?
31. 10. bo namreč Ljubljano ponovno obiskala folk melodic death metal zasedba Eluveitie, ki je ena najbolj znanih v tem žanru. Številna ekipa iz Švice je osvojila srca mnogih po svetu s svojo pristno, starodavno zvenečno, a vseeno metal glasbo, live nastopi pa so itak njihova najbolj svetla točka, saj so več kot koncerti - gre za pravo metalsko druženje, ki izstopa tako po headbanganju kot po uživanju piva in poslušanju glasne glasbe, starodavnih melodij ter mogočnih ritmov, ki skupaj govorijo o časih starodavnih bojevnikov, bogov in še čem.
Z njimi bodo tudi odlični Amaranthe, Švedi, ki pičijo odlični miks epskega power metala, prepletenega z modernimi melodičnimi death metal in celo industrial zvoki. Bend je nastal kot stranski projekt članov Kamelot, Nightrage, Dream Evil in Dragonland, izdali so kar nekaj plošč, v živo pa prednjači energija, ki izhaja iz nasprotja krulečega moškega vokala in prelepega ženskega petja.
Koncert bodo otvorili prav tako udarni The Charm The Fury.
Masko na obraz, metal v srca in gremo na koncert!


ELUVEITIE

Bio:
EluveitieIt happened in winter of 2002/2003 that Chrigel started ELUVEITIE as a studio project to breathe life into his exceptional musical vision. The first self-financed EP “Vên” was recorded in spring of 2003, was released in the same year – and completely sold out about six months later. The logical conclusion of the rhapsodical public reaction was quickly found: ELUVEITIE had to become a “real” combo with a consistent line-up for the purpose of being able to play live henceforth (the first concert in the band’s history as support act of TRIMONIUM, MENHIR and SKYFORGER took place on the 5th of February 2004 in Winterthur, Switzerland). Quickly, ELUVEITIE were identified as an exceptionally gifted live band which enabled them to indulge in tour life extensively within the next months together with prestigious acts such as AMON AMARTH, FINNTROLL and KORPIKLAANI, before they returned to the studio in winter of 2005 to lay down their eagerly anticipated debut album. This very record named “Spirit” finally came out in 2006 and let the Swiss around maestro Glanzmann go down in the annals of metal as the founders and figureheads of the “New Wave Of Folk Metal”. The rest is history…
Now ELUVEITIE have intensively recapitulated this exciting booster phase of their career. They’ve re-recorded the entire rare “Vên” EP in the line-up of 2012, by which a modern dimension was added to the legendary material, without the slightest loss of its historical splendour. Together with a re-mastered version of the full-length debut “Spirit”, this results in a profound retrospect that will send both long-time followers and nostalgia addicts as well as ELUVEITIE-newbies and those who have been chasing for these releases for years into rapture. So look forward to a very special journey through time!

AMARANTHE

Bio:
AmarantheFormed as a project in 2007 by guitarist Olof Mörck and vocalist Jake E., Gothenburg, Sweden’s AMARANTHE have carved their name into the annals of metal in capital letters. Band with an exceptional vision right from the outset, Amaranthe are an institution; trailblazers of a genre they almost single-handedly forged.
According to some sources “melodic death metal” and somewhere else pegged as “metalcore” Amaranthe keeps driving genre purists loopy. Sporting three singers, each with characteristics of their own, Amaranthe constantly defies pigeonholing and sound like no one – and nothing – else. Morten Løwe Sørensen's rhythmic thrust and Johan Andreassen's booming low-frequency assault lay the foundation to Olof Mörck’s surgically precise, almost machine-like guitar riffing and layers of lush, contemporary keyboards. Timeless, glistening pop choruses coated with an icing of three layers of sublime singing from Elize Ryd's emotive, angelic voice and Henrik Englund Wilhelmsson’s screams combine for a mix of edgy, powerful melodic music that is not only unique and unforgettable, it’s trend-setting and inimitable as well. Amaranthe has already proved they’re the next step in the evolution of metal.
After seeing major labels chomping at the bit that was their one song Myspace demo in 2008, in April 2011 their eponymous debut album was released via the prestigious metal hotbed Spinefarm Records to worldwide acclaim, charting high in Sweden and Finland. Right off the bat throbbing to the pulse of the digital music revolution, “Amaranthe” was the 84th most played album on Spotify in the whole world, counting all genres. After a completed run of 92 live shows after the release of their eponymous debut, the sextet returned to Hansen Studios in Ribe, Denmark where the Amaranthe magic has been plucked from the air since the days of the debut album.
March 2013 saw the release of “The Nexus” where everything was upped a notch. Featured was more of the band's innovative mix of melodic pop, harsh screamo metal, and techno-influenced hard rock. Extensive touring followed, more chart entries garnered (Top 10 entries both in Sweden and Finland, #12 on US Billboard Heatseeker chart etc.).
Now their career on an ever-upward trajectory, October 2014 saw the release of Amaranthe’s 3rd outing MASSIVE ADDICTIVE. Third time seemed to be the charm, as the album immediately charted in six countries, even manning the pole position on the Billboard Heatseekers chart. The album also yielded Amaranthe’s first major single hit with “Drop Dead Cynical”, which stayed several weeks at the top of USA's premier rock station, Sirius XM Octane, and had massive airplay all around the world.
The band’s fourth album “Maximalism” was released in October 2016. The album charted everywhere, reaching #1 on the Billboard Heatseakers, Top 100 Billboard, #3 in Finland and even charted in Canada. Maximalism took a small, tiny step closer to pop on some of the songs, with the first single “That Song” managing to incorporate pop with metal. Other singles “Fury” and now the latest, “Boomerang” have all received massive radio play and even larger Spotify plays.
Followers and copycats come and go, but Amaranthe remains the leader of the pack.

THE CHARM THE FURY

Bio:
The Charm The FuryFour years on from their 2013 debut album, The Charm The Fury have upped their game. An angry record driven by a collective distaste for the state of the planet in the 21st century, underpinned by ferocious intelligence and a heartfelt desire to wake people out of their smartphone stupors, sophomore assault The Sick, Dumb And Happy is sure to bring a new fire to the metal world. A startling slab of ultra-modern but utterly distinctive heavy fucking metal, it shrewdly and honestly redefines what The Charm The Fury are all about, showcasing a band at the height of their powers, driven by a collective passion for making music that goes for the jugular and demands the banging of heads. Showing a range from melodic and intimate singing, to full-force guttural screaming, singer Caroline Westendorp seeks to demonstrate that a female metal vocalist can be much more than a marketing tool to please the masses. Fittingly, her band mates have clicked into a higher gear and provide the singer with the most vibrant and vicious of backdrops.
“People don’t listen to metal music to hear this big glossy pop thing, they listen to it because they’re sick of that and they want something different,” says drummer Mathijs Tieken. “So we stripped everything down to the core and worked super hard on that core. The people that are really into metal music, even the young kids, gravitate to bands like Metallica and Pantera. That says something, that even with labels marketing stuff directly to kids, you still see kids with Metallica shirts throwing the horns. Those are the bands that we always go back to. That stuff is timeless.”
Powered by thunderous grooves and laced with incisive melodies combined with darker and moodier materials, The Charm The Fury have established themselves as one of the most promising new metal bands in Europe. The Dutch quintet are armed, ready and hungry for the next big push. When The Sick, Dumb & Happy explodes in 2017, the smart money is on these diehard noisemakers claiming their rightful place among the new metal elite. They have the songs, the determination and the charisma to make it happen. Bet against them at your peril.

Monolithe (Fra)

Lokacija:
Orto Bar, Grablovičeva 1, Ljubljana
Začetek: 21h
Uradna Facebook stran dogodka

Z naslednjo sezono Dirty Skunks začnemo z novim koncertnim ciklom imenovan RIFF EATER! Naj doni!
Kot prvi napovedan koncert bodo v Orto baru nastopili francoski Monolithe, ki sicer obstajajo že od leta 2001, vendar so šele lani začeli koncertirati v živo. Enega njihovih prvih nastopov smo lahko videli lansko leto na Metaldays.
Sami se opredeljujejo kot funeral doom, dejansko pa je njihova glasba vesolje - obenem kompleksna in primitivna.
MONOLITHE’s music needs to be lived more than listened to. Its atmosphere is grandiose and epic. The entire discography is a musical saga that mixes heaviness, mysticism and complex structures tinged with hints of progressive flair. The listener is invited into a world of beauty, horror and nothingness.


MONOLITHE

Bio:
MonolitheAmong the contemporary Doom Metal bands who have risen in the international scene during the last decade, French-based MONOLITHE, whose musical journeys opened up new horizons for the genre, stood out from the mass since its early days.
MONOLITHE’s music needs to be lived more than listened to. Its atmosphere is grandiose and epic. The entire discography is a musical saga that mixes heaviness, mysticism and complex structures tinged with hints of progressive flair. The listener is invited into a world of beauty, horror and nothingness.
Formed in 2001, MONOLITHE is the creation of Sylvain Bégot. Their debut album, “Monolithe I” was released in 2003 (Appease Me…) and started the series of 50-minute, single-track albums which would later become the band’s trademark.
“Monolithe I” was a well-received effort and MONOLITHE were able to establish themselves on the international stage. With “Monolithe II” released in 2005 (Candlelight Records/ Appease Me…) the band maintained they did not want to become repetitive but intended to harmonize their saga by maintaining consistency in their lyrics and music.
With their EPs “Interlude Premier” (2007) and “Interlude Second” (2012), MONOLITHE tried to push the frontiers of the genre by experiencing and using unusual musical vocabulary. These two records have been released on the internet free of charge.
Heralded as a progression in continuity, the third full-length album “Monolithe III” (2012) marked the beginning of a partnership with Debemur Morti Productions. Again, the album met with universal acclaim, allowing the band to reach a new level of worldwide recognition.
MONOLITHE is now getting ready to unleash the last instalment of its epic saga: “Monolithe IV”, which will spread around the world in late 2013.
Alongside this new single-track album, the closure of a saga that started exactly ten years ago will be celebrated with the reissue of the entire MONOLITHE back catalogue through Debemur Morti Productions. “Monolithe I”, “Monolithe II” & “Monolithe Zero” (including “Interlude Premier”, “Interlude Second” and bonus material) will all be made available once more including enhanced and congruous artwork.

Kitarski orgazem v Orto Baru
Popestrite si novembrski večer z vročim kitarskim orgazmom - prihajajo namreč Intervals, Polyphia in Nick Johnston.
Intervals prihajajo iz Toronta in kot Kanadčani seveda ne igrajo vsakdanje glasbe. Le-ta je namreč prepredena s tehnikalijami, nepredvidljivostmi, težo in dinamiko. Je popolnoma instrumentalna, kar bend fura že od leta 2013. Njihov modus operandi jih uvršča v ligo bendov, kot so Protest The Hero, Between The Buried And Me, Chimp Spanner, Cynic, Textures ipd., le brez vokalov. Njihova albuma A Voice Within ter Shape Of Colours sta nujno čtivo instrumentalne metal glasbe.
Drugo instrumentalno ime večera pripada zasedbi iz Texasa, ZDA, Polyphia. Prav tako instrumentalni progresivci delajo na kompleksni, a vseeno catchy glasbi. Nekateri jih uvrščajo tudi v djent sceno, a bend sam skrbi za dvome, saj se ne naslanja toliko na faktor teže kitarskih riffov.
Nick Johnston pa je znani kitarski manijak, katerega albumi so segli v srca mnogih oboževalcev progresivne glasbe. Med drugim je sodeloval tudi z imeni, kot je Gavin Harrison (Porcupine Tree, King Crimson) ali pa Brian Beller itd. Kar bo možakar pokazal, vas bo zaznamovalo za vekomaj.
Če zahtevate od glasbe več kot le sprostitev adrenalinskih zalog, potem bo 16. november vaš večer, Orto Bar pa kraj, kjer bo glasba tokrat namesto napadanja ušes dražila možgane in mirila dušo.


INTERVALS

Bio:
IntervalsIntervals is a window into the mind of guitarist & composer, Aaron Marshall. Founded in 2011, Intervals is a progressive and forward thinking staple in modern instrumental music with roots firmly planted in all things traditional, & an open eye on the future. The Shape of Colour is the natural evolution of Aaron's sound & a testament to his knack for infectious melody, & engaging compositions.

POLYPHIA

Bio:
PolyphiaBlending technical, weaving instrumentations with hip-hop, jazz and R&B influenced grooves, Dallas, TX-based instrumental outfit Polyphia has created a massively impressive sound that is all their own.
Polyphia re-released their debut full-length, Muse, on Equal Vision Records on April 21st, 2015. The album was originally self-released as an independent artist and is now available as a re-mastered, re-packaged release through the label. Upon its initial release, the full-length debut landed on several Billboard Charts including: No. 5 on Internet Albums, No. 6 on Hard Rock Albums, No. 13 on Independent Albums, No. 22 on Top Rock Albums, No. 71 on Top Current Albums, and No. 76 on Top 200.
The band released their highly anticipated sophomore full-length Renaissance, on March 11 and has sold over 11k copies to date, 2016. The album was recorded with Nick Sampson (Asking Alexandria, Of Mice & Men) who co-produced it with Polyphia guitarists Tim Henson and Scott LePage. Renaissance introduced a new conceptual and artistic direction for the trio's sound, vibe and visual aesthetic, that sees the band embracing their eclectic musical tastes (which include EDM, hip hop, pop and classical music) to create their own innovative blend of technical, yet melodic instrumental arrangements.
Polyphia is also currently writing for a new EP that they will release in 2017, which will take on a very different direction from all previous releases, with guitarists Tim Henson and Scott LePage taking creative lead on the project as both artists and producers.
