EL ROJO, the Italian stoner rock five-piece from Morano Calabro, is soon to release their debut album ‘El Diablo Rojo‘ via Karma Conspiracy Records on November 6th.

Deeply rooted in the places where they’ve grown up in Southern Italy, EL ROJO considers themselves a family born way before 2016 when they first played together as a band. Their approach to Stoner/Desert rock is metaphoric: this kind of music was born near the Californian desert, their music grows from an environment in progressive desertification. People move out of the area to search for their fortunes elsewhere, making the area increasingly poor – in people and in values.

The band took their first steps by releasing a self-produced debut EP ‘16 Inches Radial[review here] in 2018. They leaped forward by signing with the Karma Conspiracy Records label and releasing ‘Southern Crossroads,’ a single split with Teverts in 2019. The time has now come to move onward again and EL ROJO is ready to release our first full-length next week.

We’re told that ‘El Diablo Rojo‘ is titled as the musical embodiment of the desperation that rises from the abyss; when the world we were used to knowing crumbles under our very feet. As a concept, the album displays a man who lives with contradictions and distress. El Diablo Rojo’ is fed by the rage and impotence bearing witness to the constant changes that will never reverse themselves.

The focus moves from the picture of a background: belonging to the South, passions, hopes, and the certainty of being part of a generation robbed of their own rights. The right to have a job, to access a decent life like the generations before have had benefit from. The music follows the observer’s point of view, the classic dusty stoner rock becomes doomy, following the mood and emotions that emerge from track after track.

Tracklist:

01. South
02. El Camino
03. The Wanderer
04. Colors
05. Ascension
06. When I Slow Down
07. Cactus Bloom
08. Dragonfly

Produced by Filippo ‘Phil Liar’ Buono, the album was recorded and mixed at Monolith Recording Studio, then mastered by Giovanni Nebbia at Ithil World Mastering. November 6th unleashes ‘El Diablo Rojo‘ upon us through Karma Conspiracy Records.

Today, we’re honored to share a new single from the EL ROJO groove troupe by way of an official lyric video for the track “When I Slow Down.” The band shares some details about the new single:

If you think that ‘When I Slow down’ is just a spooky song about undeads, then you are wrong. WISD’s meaning is as deep as the waters where usually the red devil, ‘El Diablo Rojo,’ lives.

Many people nowadays are forced to live in a loop made of duties, life-goals defined by society. They flatten their lives to fit these standards, leading themselves to a non-living state, just like zombies. This song yells that happiness is within our grasp, we just have to slow down and realise that we have to color up our lives to fight conformity.

When Mary release video for remix version of Frequency

Norwegian art rock duo When Mary release electronica version of Frequency

Published

By

Norwegian art rock duo When Mary have released a vide for a new electronica remix of their track Frequency, which is taken from their second album, 2017’s Tainted. You can see the new video in full below.

The song is an all new and re-recorded electronica version which was recorded in October of 2019 and the video was created in January of 2020 when Covid-19 threw a spanner in the works.

“This electronica version was first arranged for the tour following the release of Tainted,” explains singer and keyboard plater Trude Eidtang, who is joined in the band by guitarist Christian Paulsen.

“It got received so well by the audience that we thought it deserved another go!  It later also became the thematic backdrop for the multimedia show What’s Your Frequency?, a conceptual compilation of all When Mary releases so far.”

Three Colours Dark release spooky new video for Monster

Former Karnataka band mates Three Colours Dark released their debut album The Science Of Goodbye earlier this year

UK atmospheric progressive duo Three Colours Dark, who feature former Karnataka pair Rachel Cohen and Jonathan Edwards, have released a spooky new video, the band’s first, for the aptly titled Monster (given today is Halloween). It’s taken from their recently released album, The Science Of Goodbye through Firefly Music in April.

“We’re delighted to release our first video,” says Rachel and Jon. “Bringing the track Monster to life, this was filmed, edited and created by Tim Hamill during our album studio sessions last year. It’s dark, sinister and brooding… and perfect for sharing some Halloween vibes!”

The slow-building, brooding Monster sees Rachel Jones duetting with Chimpan A and The Storys vocalist Steve Balsamo in the new video. Prog Magazine referred to Monster as “disturbing” in our review of The Science Of Goodbye, calling the album a”near perfect return” and  “a collaboration between two musicians who comprehend and compliment each other”.

“It’s the first time that Rachel and I have worked together for 16 years since our work as founder members of Karnataka and it’s also Rachel’s first recording since The Reasoning’s Adventures In Neverland album,” says Edwards.

Golden Caves release video for How To Care

Dutch prog rock quintet Golden Caves released new album Dysergy earlier this year

Dutch prog rock quintet Golden Caves have released a new video for How To Care. It’s taken from the band’s recently released second album Dysergy, which is available through the Suburban Music Group label. You can watch the video in full below.

“I lost the sense of how to care,” says Golden Caves singer Romy Ouwerkerk. “The world felt so monstrous. I didn’t like any of it or where it was going. You can’t do everything on your own. Sometimes you need others around you and their love to keep seeing the beauty of life and the world”.

The quintet, who formed at Rotterdam University in 2013 crowdfunded the ten-track  Dysergy. The album, which is reviewed in the latest issue of Prog Magazine (on sale Thursday) is described as “mixing the atmospheric grace of Radiohead, The Pineapple Thief and Iamthemorning with the hardened edge of District 97 and Porcupine Tree.”

Previously the band have released videos for Hide And Seek and Temperature.

Get Dysergy.
