Behemoth takes on Halloween with XXX Years Ov Blasphemy, German experimental popmusic from the early 80s in new compilation, Robyn team up with Smile. Plus The Speed of Sound, Blood Red Throne, Sample Hate and Tarmat.
German experimental popmusic from the early 80s united on ‘Eins, Zwei, Drei und Vier – Deutsche Experimentelle Popmusik 1980-1986’: Bureau B, the Hamburg based label which releases past and future classics returns with an interesting compilation: “Eins, Zwei, Drei und Vier – Deutsche Experimentelle Popmusik 1980-1986” on CD, double vinyl and as download. On the compilation you get the sound of Germany’s musical youth let loose on cheap synths and pawnshop guitars and who redefined German music in the first half of the 1980s. Via Side-Line.
The Speed of Sound | Museum of Tomorrow: Power pop / indie rock collective The Speed Of Sound present 'Last Orders', hot on trail of revealing the single 'Opium Eyes' and 'Tomorrow's World' from their Future-Retro-Modernist long-player 'Museum of Tomorrow'. 32 years to the day when the band's debut EP saw the light of day in 1989, they've released this album on CD and Deluxe LP via California-based Big Stir Records. Hailing from Manchester, The Speed Of Sound's music is optimistic, but with lyrical bite, a punk-inspired DIY ethos and lust for experimentation rooted in psychedelia. Formed in 1989 with a pre-history dating back to the day Andy Warhol died in 1987, The Speed of Sound lies deep below the ‘music industry radar’, allowing for the evolution of their own distinctive sound and live act.

Behemoth celebrates Halloween with Global Livestream “XXX Years Ov Blasphemy”: This year, on Halloween night, the curtain that divides the Worlds of the living and the dead will be destroyed in flames and will be replaced with dark magic by the masters of extreme metal BEHEMOTH. “30 years of blasphemy and bring on 30 more!” enthuses the frontman. “What better night than All Saint’s Eve to celebrate this most unholy anniversary than with us, as we present the most ambitious project of our career to date, XXX Years Ov Blasphemy. Legions, when I say this is the ultimate cinematic Behemoth experience, I cannot express how much I mean that. Another huge risk for us, but as always, we go feet first and push our limits. The result will be a sight to behold. We’ll see you in The Forest… and more!” Via Black / Blue.
Robyn team up with Smile for their new single ‘Call My Name’: Robyn has teamed up with the Swedish duo for their new song The song is taken from the upcoming new album by Smile – Björn Yttling (Peter, Björn and John) and Joakim Åhlund (Teddybears, Caesars) – titled ‘Phantom Island’, which is set for release on November 19 via Chimp Limbs.

Blood Red Throne | Imperial Congregation: Accompanying the release of the new album, the band releases new single ‘Transparent Existance’ with a killer music video. With over 25 years and 10 albums of history Blood Red Throne has dedicated their career to delivering straight, no-frills death metal, and the new album, 'Imperial Congregation', is no exception. “This time we did something new and with a fresh sound. We felt this with the first song we wrote: it will take us to a whole different level in terms of arrangements, riffs, vocals... everything. We are very excited to share this with our fans, along with the best music label that has ever existed”, comments Olaisen, the band's guitarist. Watch Transparent Existence.
Sample Hate | Tic Toc: 14th single by Brazilian band Sample Hate, which has multi-instrumentalists, composers and producers Artur Porpino, Dante Augusto and now Pedro Victor Cunha as third member. Sample Hate has been confirming its artistic creativity and standing out as one of the most active bands in the Brazilian underground scene. The onomatopoeia Tic Toc - currently a sound indisputably associated with the aesthetic of dancing, disseminated in the addictive social network – becomes, paradoxically, a piece of soft and acidic music: “Oh, lazy, lazy, lady… Go see your 'tic toc ', while I'm enjoying my Woodstock”. Listen Tic Toc.
Tarmat | Backbone Feeling: Brazilian AOR / Melodic Rock band, with clear influences from the 80s, released its debut single, ‘Backbone Feeling’. The single is part of the debut album ‘Out of the Blue’, to be released on October 22 on streaming platforms, and is accompanied by a lyric video already available on YouTube. ‘Backbone Feeling’ is the album's opening track and was chosen as a single, as it presents all the energy of Tarmat's sound. “This was the first song we worked on together, as soon as we formed the band, and we were so pleased with the results that it gave us motivation to move forward”, says Eduardo Marcolino, guitarist of the band.
