Saarbrücken, Germany’s progressive rock and alternative metal virtuosos KHAIMA will release their impressive debut album, ‘Owing To The Influence‘, on October 30th, via Barhill Records. This should please fans of acts like Tool, My Sleeping Karma, Alice In Chains, and beyond…

Following their self-titled 2016 debut EP ‘Khaima‘, the five-piece collective creates a dynamic and, powerful, yet beautiful sound landscape influenced by various elements between progressive, alternative rock, and modern metal styles. Their song structures do not follow classical or forced patterns, the guitar arpeggios are enriched with spherical effects, thus forming the musical framework. Extroverted bass lines carry the rhythm and are not afraid of cross references to the Afro-American music of the 60s and 70s, while the drums fit perfectly into this sound bed by differentiated changes of odd meters and fragile hi-hat patterns. The synthesizer’s effectively restrained soundscapes put it all together and open the view to the big picture.

Owing To The Influence‘ was recorded with producer Mike Balzer (member and producer of Flares) in Saarbrücken, Germany, and was mastered by Cult Of Luna‘s Magnus Lindberg (Refused, Dool, Russian Circles, and many more). The band explains the themes of their upcoming debut:

We count, simulate, histogram almost everything and relativize the results until the overall picture corresponds to our own imagination. Mainly for our own interests, we instrumentalize them in order to stand out and put ourselves in a better light, instead of confronting the core of the problem.

The symptoms are pushed to the fore and the cause is ignored. Populism, conspiracy theories, fake news, alternative facts – our reality unfortunately depends too often on the point of view of the observer.

Tracklist:

01. Blowback
02. Partisanship
03. Assimilation
04. Parasomnia
05. The Fox And The Grapes
06. Le Hirak
07. Collidoscope
08. Extrapolation

Watch the trailer for the new Paul McCartney album

50 years on from McCartney and 40 from McCartney II, Paul McCartney finally announces the launch of McCartney III

Published

Paul McCartney has announced the release of his latest solo album, McCartney III. It’s the follow-up to 2018’s Egypt Station, but is also the third in a trilogy of self-titled albums that kicked off with his debut solo album McCartney in 1970 and picked up again with 1980’s McCartney II.

Like the previous two albums – McCartney was recorded at the singer’s home in North London as the Beatles were separating, and McCartney II at his Scottish farm after Wings broke up – McCartney III was recorded in his home studio and written, produced and performed entirely by the former Beatles bassist.  

“I was living lockdown life on my farm with my family and I would go to my studio every day,” says McCartney. “I had to do a little bit of work on some film music and that turned into the opening track and then when it was done I thought what will I do next? 

“I had some stuff I’d worked on over the years but sometimes time would run out and it would be left half-finished so I started thinking about what I had. Each day I’d start recording with the instrument I wrote the song on and then gradually layer it all up, it was a lot of fun.  

“It was about making music for yourself rather than making music that has to do a job. So, I just did stuff I fancied doing. I had no idea this would end up as an album.”

The spur for the album’s creation came when McCartney returned to When Winter Comes, a track he worked on with Beatles producer George Martin in the early 90s. He crafted a new passage for the song, giving rise to both the album’s opener, Long Tailed Winter Bird, and its closer, Winter Bird/When Winter Comes.

On the album, McCartney plays a variety of instruments including a double bass once owned by Bill Black from Elvis Presley’s original backing band The Blue Moon Boys, Paul’s own Hofner violin bass, and a mellotron from Abbey Road Studios used by The Beatles.

McCartney III is released December 11 on Capitol Records, and is available to pre-order now.

Last month, Movements finally unveiled their sophomore album No Good Left To Give.

Now, the Southern California band is offering an intimate look into how the album was made in a new mini-documentary.

Back in 2017, Movements released their debut full-length Feel Something. The album was warmly received by both fans and critics who quickly attached themselves to songs such as “Daylily” and “Colorblind.”

Following the success of Feel Something, however, Movements had to eventually turn to a blank page and start from scratch again. This time around, Movements decided to film their experiences while writing and recording their second full-length that would eventually be titled No Good Left To Give.

The band share at the start of the documentary that the intensity of the Feel Something era took a big toll on them. As a result, they didn’t write any new material for almost a year following the album’s release.

As well, frontman Patrick Miranda reveals that he experienced a lot of emotions after Feel Something. He poured his feelings and experiences into the debut album which ultimately made him feel like he didn’t have much else to offer.

“With Feel Something, I feel like I was nervous about writing music that I felt was good enough,” he says. “Obviously, I dug really deep into my emotions and my mental illnesses and all of the things that kind of make up who I am as a person. I poured everything into Feel Something. Because of that, it sort of sent me into this weird place afterward where I felt that I didn’t have anything left to offer. After Feel Something, I sort of had this mental break a little bit. I’ve dealt with anxiety and I’ve dealt with depression my whole life, but this was like a new kind of level.”

When it finally came to record No Good Left To Give, however, Movements had a lot more material to choose from. Miranda further shares that the band completed 17 songs for this album cycle as opposed to the nine they prepared for Feel Something.

As well, No Good Left To Give includes topics that Movements have never addressed before. Although there are still songs about loneliness and mental illness, No Good Left To Give also includes moments of love and even sex as we hear in “Skin To Skin.”

“I talk about loss and sort of emptiness and loneliness because of loss. But at the same time, there’s a handful of wild cards,” Miranda shares. “There are themes and topics in this album that we’ve never touched on before and a lot of topics that are more mature and a lot more adult then we might have done in the past. I think a lot of stuff we write about just has to do with everyday life.”

Movements’ The Making of No Good Left To Give documentary is available to stream below.

With Halloween 2020 right around the corner, Tim Burton fans are truly thriving. Now, TikTok is making it easier than ever to become a character from your favorite Burton film.

A new filter has sparked a trend on the video-sharing platform that allows users to become characters straight out of Corpse Bride, Frankenweenie and more.

Even though many of us won’t be taking part in trick-or-treating or parties for Halloween this year, there’s still no excuse to not dress up. Thanks to TikTok, you can transform yourself into your favorite Tim Burton characters this spooky season without packing on makeup or zipping up a costume.

Various TikTok users over the past few weeks have been using the Blue Line Filter, or the Time Warp Scan Filter, to make the transformations. Using the filter, they pull down on their under eyes when the blue line moves over them. This allows the individual to make it seem like they have under-eye bags.

Then, once the line moves past their eyes, the users quickly move their hands out of the way. As the blue line travels down their face, they pull down on their cheeks which makes their cheekbones appear.

Gaining access to the filter is pretty simple. To start, you’ll need to open TikTok and hit the “+” button at the bottom of the screen which will let you create a new video. Then, on the right-hand side of the screen, there’s a label called “filters.” Once you’ve clicked that, you’ll want to open the tab that says “trending.”

From there, you’ll have to scroll through all of the filters until you come across an icon of a face with a blue line running through it. Once you’ve applied it to your video, you should be able to finally transform yourself into your favorite Tim Burton character.
