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.

Wringer 13: Joel Graham from EVILE

Since March is my birthday month, I decided that this month's Wringer 13 will be with my good buddy - and he of the loverly hair - one Mr. Joel Graham. Most will know him simply as EVILE's resident bass shredder. Joel joined the band in December of 2009 and his first live show with EVILE was in January 2010. Five Serpent's Teeth is the first EVILE album to feature Joel on bass.  You can get your EVILE fix at and  EVILE on Facebook.

Who are you, really, and what do you do?
I'm really Joel Graham when I'm not anyone else and I play bass in EVILE. I also drive everywhere and am the band's music library as I have the most stuff on my iPod.

What's the best thing about being in your band?
Everything, like the lot! Touring, writing, recording, planning stuff, I like it all. 

How has being a touring musician changed you?
  I like to think it hasn't. Yes, when out touring it's all band stuff that takes place, 100%. But when I'm home it's back…
