‘You waste my time’ is the epic second single to be released from Final Coil’s forthcoming debut album ‘Persistence of Memory’, which is set to be released worldwide via WormHoleDeath Records. Mixed by Wahoomi Corvi of Real Sound Studios and mastered by Magnus Lindberg (Cult of Luna), ‘Persistence of Memory’ is a richly varied album that provides the perfect introduction to the band.
An energetic track, ‘You waste my time’ showcases the band’s more experimental side with synth drums, intricate vocal harmonies and deftly interwoven guitar lines all drawing the listener towards a pummelling finale that blazes with unexpected fury. A perfect example of the band’s dynamic and ever-evolving sound, ‘You waste my time’ pulses with energy and yet retains the melodic depth that sits at the core of the band’s song-writing.
The video, captured by Jay Hillyer (Cabin Boy Jumped Ship) sees Final Coil continue to seek out creative and talented individuals with whom to work, having previously collaborated with Andy Pilkington (Flotsam and Jetsam) on the stunning lyric video for ‘corruption’, and the result is a beautifully rendered clip that captures the raw energy of the band’s live performance and adds a darkly cinematic edge reminiscent of clips by A Perfect Circle, Alice in Chains and Soundgarden. Filmed at Palmers Garden Centre in Enderby (during working hours, much to the bemusement of staff and customers alike), the clip provides what will be, for many, a first glimpse of Final Coil.
‘Persistence of Memory’ is to be released digitally on June 23rd (with a US release of July 14th) and on CD on Sept 22nd with a Japanese release scheduled for Nov 29th via WormHoleDeath Records.
As seen on Scuzz TV, and taken from their self-titled debut ep, Death Blooms dispense with the pleasantries and show off music muscle with their new music video ‘Sick’.
Hailing from Liverpool and Manchester, the metalcore four-piece burst onto the scene earlier this year with their stunning first music release ‘I’m Dead‘ and a number of live shows which has seen them sharing the stages with the likes of Dope, Skindred, Raging Speedhorn, (Hed)P.E., Anti-Clone and more.
Supporters of mental health charity MIND, Death Blooms fresh take on metal with meaning has seen their fan base grow rapidly. Vocalist Paul Barrow humbly recognises this, “We talk to people a lot who’ve taken the time to listen to our music, and because the lyrics encapsulate what many of us feel on a daily basis, a lot of folk make the connection quickly about mental health and the need for well-being in this fast and furious digital age.”
Barrow explains the meaning behind the song and new video, “‘Sick’is about the constant struggle inside of your own thoughts and the journey you undertake along the way. Sometimes, you feel like you have complete control of the situation and other times you have absolutely none. ‘Sick‘ is about wanting to break free from your own shackles, but acknowledging and accepting that this is who you are. It’s good to talk about how you feel and to be honest, most importantly, with yourself. I feel like the song ended up being one massive therapy session for me.”
Death Blooms self-titled debut ep is available now.
Proudly announce the release of their new album – the angry, reflective and beautifully honest “Society’s Rejects” on July 21st.
The perfect balance of attitude, swagger and raw rasping vocals – Society’s Rejects, is full of straight up rock’roll songs – tons of energy, flashes of anger and serrated guitar-driven angst. Nothing can stop The SoapGirls inevitable rise to the top.
Arresting and compelling Society’s Rejects encapsulates and distills perfectly The SoapGirls live energy and replicates perfectly the thrill of their live show. The SoapGirls uncompromising brand of music has been labelled “Revolt Rock’, a mix of revolting and revolutionary music. “Put it this way if music was a hand, revolt rockwould be the middle finger, it’s there to piss people off make them think in this fucked up world.”
“Stand up, you know you’ll be shot down, life’s free but you’re gonna pay somehow” sings Mille on the opening title track, setting the tone for the whole album about society and how it “rejects anyone that tries to question the system. We are sold a dream of being free when in actual fact we’re not, if you do not conform and follow the guidelines society sets out for you you are vilified and rejected”.
The energetic and diverse Society’s Rejects is full of finely crafted songs and rock’n’roll attitude. With unforgettable melodies and catchy choruses, the fifteen musical nuggets on the album include previous singles as bonus tracks: the primal and emotional break up song Rather Be Dead and the Bad Bitch, a caustic slice of vitriolic rock’n’roll.
The SoapGirls also “bring humourto the situation with Party inHell, life’s already fucked up so might as well rock the party however you like, the politicians are so why cant we?”
Society’s Rejects is “a kick in the face followed by a kiss, it’s raw dramatic angry and passionate with warped humour thrown in” and finds The SoapGirls at their full creative tilt delivering frenetic garage rock with heavy and psychedelic overtones with a modern twist. Armed with a venomous swagger and catchy, riff-oriented guitar grind, backed up by their strong songwriting abilities, dedication and determination to their craft, The SoapGirls have earned them a formidable live reputation and this raucous force of nature with a love for screaming guitars, in your face bass, and raw vocals have delivered a statement of intent with their exceptional debut.
The striking artwork captures their vision and fights back for women rights “first of all society tells you to cover yourself and be ‘decent’ so in true SoapGirl fashion of course we weren’t gonna do that”. Alluring, hypnotic and nonchalant The SoapGirls, the French born sisters Ca(Millie) and Noe(MIE) Debray, hail from South Africa and were given their name by the general public back in 2004. “We’ve been The SoapGirls since we were 8 and 9 selling hand made soap and street performing for various causes, we did this 365 days of the year for 9 years”. Displaced master musicians and political agitators – few can match the SoapGirls visceral sonic hypnotic beauty and soul.
Society’s Rejects is a record from a band that have found their sound and is ready for the world to hear. There’s always hope for a new dawn however dark the sky might seem!
