September 22nd, 2016 / Comments Off on New single from Jackson Reed – Generation Vietnam / by Mog/
This is the lead single from Jackson Reed’s debut solo album “The November Gales EP” out October 14, 2016. It is called “Genration Vietnam” and It was engineered by Jonas Bonnetta at Port William Sound, mastered by Gavin Gardiner at Lacquer Channel and artwork is drawn by Kyle Field of Little Wings. The song is about U.S.A’s military conscription in the 1960’s and imaging men my age being chosen randomly for the Vietnam War. Living in the music and drug culture of the 60’s would be fun, but on the other hand, incredibly scary if you were forced to go to war.

September 22nd, 2016 / Comments Off on New album from Moanaa – Passage / by Mog/
Based in Southern Poland, the five-piece have already managed to self-release a full-length debut, titled “Descent” (2014) and tour a serious roll of places in their native country, most recently including the Days of No Light Tour with Blaze of Perdition and Mord’A’Stigmata, as well as this year’s Castle Party in Bolków, where they shared the altar of the post-evangelical church with Furia inter alia. Having partnered with Arachnophobia Records, they still have the best ahead of them with “Passage” being a first step. Tracked at Heaven’s Sound Studio by Marcin Piekło, with the vocals recording done by Nihil at the infamous Czyściec Studio and mixing by Haldor Grunberg at Satanic Audio, the record captures a wide and rich sonic universe Moanaa has to offer. It is highly recommended for you to step on board and join the journey. It begins now. Poland’s post-metal alchemists Moanaa give an insight into “The Process” : It comes in waves. Mounting. Slowly unfolding. The second coming of Moanaa. Being no newcomer to their country’s ever-blooming metal scene, the band unveil the first song from their sophomore album, “Passage” due 15th September on Arachnophobia Records. “The Process, Part One” is a manifestation of Moanaa’s main strength: accumulating tension while maintaining the craving for ethereal, picturesque resonance. Second by second, as the song develops, one is gradually lured into the whirlwind of layering themes. It, indeed, is the process one will easily fall for becoming part of. – We have unanimously chosen “The Process” as the album opener. It starts the whole journey for us: everything evolves and accelerates naturally as the listener is offered a glimpse of what follows. Also in terms of lyrics. It is heralding the themes which are further examined in the rest of the songs – explains Kvass, Moanaa’s singer.

September 21st, 2016 / Comments Off on New single from Taigenz – Familiar (I Must Confess) / by Mog/
Born of Cameroonian parents on November 30th, 1991, Tamfu Terry Ngala – aka Taigenz – has been honing his skills as an artist and performer since he was 11 years old. At 16 years old, he put together a 16-track compilation entitled ‘First Impressions’, which was his first complete project of music distributed to his closest peers and those around him. In 2010, Taigenz released ‘Mr. 514 (The PreTape)’ as his first mixtape. He then released the follow-up project, the street album ‘Mr. 514’ in 2012. Working with various local producers, Taigenz took up the task of manufacturing and promoting his album independently, selling many during his three-year career program at Dawson College. In 2013, Taigenz embarked on a three-city tour with Wu-Tang Clan affiliate members to Ottawa, Toronto and Hamilton. Having opened for American hip-hop artists like Canibus, M.O.P., Denzel Curry – and performed in Paris, Atlanta and a number of Canadian colleges and universities – he has begun to regard his Canadian and African heritage as a growing part of his persona. Taigenz has also opened for Wiz Khalifa, Big K.R.I.T., New Boyz, Denzel Curry, Canibus, and M.O.P., as well as Afro-beat superstar Iyanya. His influences include Nipsey Hussle, Kevin Gates, J. Cole, African artists such as Wizkid, Davido and Jovi. As a teenager, Taigenz developed his music as part of a collective of other hip-hop artists called Black Glovez, which opened for Big K.R.I.T. at the Belmont and Wiz Khalifa at MTL’s Corona Theater.

September 21st, 2016 / Comments Off on New single from Terence Jack – Errors / by Mog/
Errors was conceived during a wine jam-session and evolved from a punchy riff to the full-bodied song in The Space studio with Dan. I initially saved the song as “Errors” on my phone and never changed the name. “We just succumbed to the poppiness of the song and served the song. The bridge was added last and turned out to be my favourite part of the whole record.”Errors” details the bitter-sweetness of leaving someone, or being left, in favour of chasing dreams. The departure, the return, and the ride reflect that concept. Summer has been engulfed by a 45-day tour and playing a ton of festivals. As the days get shorter, I will be heading back to the studio to work on my next full-length album, due for release in 2017.
