Music Submission, Astasis

Artist or Band Name: 
Astasis

A•STASIS is an addictively grooving, hook rich, prog rock band from Austin, TX. Rooted at the soul of A•STASIS is an appetite for novelty and unlimited artistic expression in the context of an impending culture crisis. Melodic, dynamic, and lyrically dense, A•STASIS doesn’t linger in one playground for long as their songs weave infectious prog riffs with funky pop sequences all while remaining elusively catchy.

Founded by bassist/vocalist, Blaine Matte (Eyetooth, Quartershackle, Entropist), A•STASIS is a melting pot of influences that honorably includes Opeth, Herbie Hancock, Queens of the Stone Age, Stevie Wonder, King Crimson, and (the)Melvins. Produced by veteran guitarist and pianist, Skunk Manhattan (A Good Rogering, Runescarred, Invincible Czars, Quartershackle), A•STASIS will release their debut album summer 2021 featuring Skunk, drummer Eoghan McCloskey (Vex, Aduanten, Obsequiae) and guest saxophonist, Steven Vague. Recorded and mixed at Mesa Recording Studios by Rob Hinton (Michael Jackson, Korn), the video premiere for the first single, “Engage”, will debut on 5/21/21.

Live. Life. Play. Don’t look back

Breaking up is hard to do. But once you have dealt with the pain, you might write some great tunes.

The 05:40s is a new talent from the Montreux area with a keen ear for melody. Their music is often inspired by life events – check out their first EP of new music.

And while some of these happenings haven’t been easy to deal with, they wear their life experiences lightly. Stuff happens. It’s about how you deal with it.

The band’s name may have been inspired by a clock in their recording studio stuck at a particular point on the dial. But the 05:40s’ attitude is not frozen in time. These musical adventurers are about looking forward.

“We’re all guys that have been through some serious stuff this year, things that are universal like going through divorce and kids growing up and leaving home,” explains band leader Julian Anthoney.

“But whatever has happened, we’re positive, we’re dealing with it and are optimistic about the future. Our writing reflects all of that.”

Their warm, sometimes bittersweet sound will draw you in. The 05:40s walk an appealing line straddling rock and classic pop. And you may be surprised by their fresh approach to some well-established musical paths.

Music Submission, Infernal Weveo!

Artist or Band Name: 
Infernal Weveo!

nfernal Weveo! is a musical project originated in the cold south of Chile, specifically in Calbuco City, and made up of Reverendo Panzada (aka Nano Sperm aka Felipe Parra) as composer of music and lyrics, who was also the founder and editor of the broadcast site Chilean rock band Éjate Webzine.

Infernal Weveo is described as a catharsis of everyday situations expressed in staves, which can be treated with irony, humor and even anger. Musically, you don't want to rewrite the history of rock or punk, you always keep a melodic line that can be followed easily, but that is both effective and energetic. Some of the songs that are in the repertoire have more than 8 years of being written, so the topics covered have been varying through the natural life of the Reverend, it is expected for the following musical releases, the public can appreciate this both artistic and personal maturity, always enjoying a good time.

The greatest influences start with the national Los Mox !, (as a fearless confidence, these singles were always thought to have the same sound as the album “Con Cover”, 2006) and from there they branch out into other international and creole sounds , like: "Destruction", "Slayer", "Fun People", "Fiskales", "Konsumo Respeto", "Suicidal Tendencies", "Andrés Lecaros y Los Forajidos" and "Disaster".

In 2019 the band released their first EP called "Panzada ... El EP?" which is available on all streaming platforms and contains 6 songs, from which there is also a maxisingle of 2 outtakes, which contains covers of 2 Argentine artists. Bisagra was the single from that album with the most rotation in some radio media.

The 2020 IW! He released two singles in which he turns his sound upside down, closer to SOD, DRI or Suicidal Tendencies, with which they are promoting what would be a new EP without a publication date yet.

Music Submission, Suburban Rituals

Artist or Band Name: 
Suburban Rituals

SUBURBAN RITUALS is a Canadian 00’s alt rock inspired trio with roots in punk and metal. Their brand of heavy rock is edgy but melodic, with driving rhythm, catchy guitar hooks, and anthemic choruses.

Suburban Ritual’s latest single “Nosebleed” was released as a music video on YouTube which we are promoting with digital marketing campaigns. We think it would sound right at home on BBS.

 SUBURBAN RITUALS’ debut EP will be released October 30, 2020 on all digital streaming platforms as well as Bandcamp for direct-to-artist support.

Music Submission, BaYaT

Artist or Band Name: 
BaYaT

BaYaT are a five piece rock band from Novi Sad, Serbia. They formed as BaYaT in 2018 after playing together for several years as a cover band called “Milos and Good Company“, covering such bands as Linkin Park, Slipknot, Korn, Serj Tankien, Soundgarden amongst others.

Frontman Milos Bajat had been featured on several reality shows such as “X Factor” and “First voice of Serbia”. Although he progressed well on both shows, he was disillusioned by the production and the politics surrounding such shows and was soon back on the local rock scene.

The birth of BaYaT started after a chance meeting between Milos and now band manager and executive producer Englishman David Anthony Kitching, who happen to see him perform and was instantly impressed by his vocals to a point of saying he was the best male vocal performer he had heard in the balkans.

On Christmas Day of 2019 BaYaT released their debut album “So It Begins“, an eight track album of pure rock with hints of Alt Rock and pinches of NU Metal, accompanying solid vocals with strong messages about current affairs and situations. The album itself is the beginning of a longer story that will spill into future album releases.

There were four single releases from their debut album: “Lost”, “Adrenaline”, “So It Begins”, and “A Prayer In Time”. All videos were directed by Milos’s wife Shka Bajat.

In late 2019 BaYaT changed production studios from Novi Sad to Studio Blaze Belgrade and started a new collaboration with Studio producer Milos Mihajlovic, a decision that has proved pivotal as the production has really moved up a level with a great understanding between Band, Manager and Producer.

In 2020 BaYaT took to their “So It Begins” tour performing in rock venues and festivals before the pandemic brought a dramatic halt to all performances.

Currently BaYaT are working on their second album “Purge“ and will have their first single “Madness“ off the album released 26th September 2020.

The journey continues ...

Music Submission, The Modern Day Slave

Artist or Band Name: 
The Modern Day Slave

Rising from the deep caves of the South African music industry comes The Modern Day Slave with new age experimental rap instrumentals who many may call the future, he raps about social issues as well as self conscious raps about personal reflection and development. Whether it’s crying out “fear is the man in the mirror” or “me and my brain , living our life in vain just Hoping to gain , pretty b****es cash and pain” he uses clever word play and a smooth flow to please listeners ears. It’s only been months since I started producing and writing lyrics and I have to say I have found my passion. I’ve always had a soft spot for music at the age of 13 I played my first instrument a saxophone and I knew from then that I wanted to make music in my life, though certain life experiences lead me to different places , experiencing the world I learnt a lot about myself and how my destiny unfolds . 2019 I published a blog on the topic modern day slavery and so the journey began . The more I discussed about modern day slavery I was learning myself and it came to a point where I see myself as a slave to modern society April 2020 I started producing beats on my laptop that’s when I also started writing and reflecting on my own personal experiences I see music as the best form of expression for me it’s where I can explore the limitless possibilities of creativity.
