Kolony Records to release Be'Lakor's Of Breath and Bone to North American Audience
Italian label Kolony Records inked a brand new distribution deal for all of North America through DisManic via eOne Distribution. Kolony's aim is to expanded and reach more European fans and stores since it's 2008 formation. With the new distribution deal, they are able to furnish us some good music via Australian band Be'lakor. Of Breath and Bone is the band's third album and Kolony Records hopes this will bring them a wider audience. Of Breath and Bone was released in Europe last year to critical acclaim and Kolony hopes the June 2013 North American release will bring the same. The opening track, "Abeyance", boasts some good guitar harmonies by George Kosmas and Shaun Sykes over some solid drumming. George Kosmas's vocals remind me of 80s Fields of the Nephilim / Sisters of Mercy type thing. The modern sound and the waver vocals are a great mix. "Abeyance" is a wonderful mixture of vintage and modern metal.
LIFE OF AGONY A Place Where There's No More Pain Napalm Records Release: 28 April 2017
I'm a long time Life of Agony fan. They are "locals". I've seen them live in Brooklyn (although, I've seen them live more in Germany). They are a solid heavy metal band. The new album on Napalm Records is wicked groovilicious. Yes, I'm biased. But Life of Agony's A Place Where's No More Pain is gobsmackingly amazing.
The songs are harsh; I mean they are like a punch to the gut. The feels. Zomg the feels. The lyrics just make you go, 'God Damn!' (said in Sweet D's voice). There is so much to headbang or pole dance (whatever you predilection).
'Dead Speak Kindly' and 'A New Low' puts me in the mind of Alice in Chains. Ted Jensen's fingerprints are all in this pie. He worked with Alice in Chains and you can tell. This is a good thing as you are familiar with the overall tone of the music.
