New track "Seventeen, baby" by Papyllon

“Seventeen, Baby” hooks from the get-go, with late-night brass and a smoothly paced rhythm section establishing the feel. The vocals begin with a subdued presence, though escalate as the track progresses, going as far to compare to Jeff Buckley’s emotional presence at points.

The “seventeen, baby” pause – followed by the smattering of brass – is an excellent mid-point placement, guiding into a final minute that’s beautifully capped off by a vocal turn into smooth R&B, for a fleeting moment.

"Seventeen, Baby" started out as purely electronic track made by Richard, the guitar player. "We liked it very much and started experimenting with it, playing it together live and it slowly formed to its current form," the band explains. "There were, however, empty parts in the beginning and in the middle and we immediately felt that trumpet would do magic there. Fortunately, we have a friend who is a trumpet player and he played a beautiful trumpet link in the parts we wanted and even in other parts of the song to enhance the emotion. It is the only track that has a guest musician in it from the album."

"We´re kinda like black sheep on the scene, a four-piece: a natural shredder, a drummer, a singer, and a misanthrope. Our history began sometime in the fall of 2010. Since then, we´ve played any genre that the critics and fans could come up with. We come from a relatively small town of Prešov, in a relatively small country of Slovakia, so we´re relatively humble but somewhere deep inside, everyone of us wants to sell out and buy a roadster. Our mutual goal is to be idolized sometime in the future, just like motivation speakers or cat videos."

Soundtrack To Your Own Fantasy (Special Edition) by Mixtaped Monk & Cousin Silas

There is music that can make you want to dance. There is music that can make you happy or emotional, and sometimes even sad. But in a very niche corner of the musical spectrum dwells a type of music that can make you visualize your own story while listening to it. “Soundtrack To Your Own Fantasy,” a split album by Indian music producer Arka Sengupta aka Mixtaped Monk and British ambient music legend Cousin Silas, is a record that falls into that very musical spectrum.

Bordering around ambient, post-rock and experimental music, the album blends ambient and cinematic music sensibilities of Cousin Silas with the experimental-minded post-rock sensibilities of Mixtaped Monk. The cinematic nature of the album, when listened to as a whole, can trigger your mind to imagine your own fantasy world and play out a story in it while the album acts as its soundtrack.

The Wolves Are No Longer Howling by Elvaan Ibanfure

2017-07-31 05:02:30 UTC

A2359026919 16

In the middle of México, in the Capital of the Country, north of the so called “City of Hope” Rafael Gtz. Under the nickname: Elvaan Ibanfure rises as an alternative with a totally aggressive, contradictory and defiant proposal for the social context in which it develops.

Elvaan Ibanfure, with a long career as a musician and singer with some of the most unique and original bands in México (All You Hate) and Arda is now exploring the music world as a solo artist, confronting his own mind and maturity, maturity that has been cause and result of some series of tragedies and events that, with time, allowed him to extend his consciousness and made him aware about social decadency, which goes over borders and infest the whole planet.

Upon the reality in which he lives, a strong feeling of impotence arises, that began to take form in his mind and heart, in front of the apparent inevitable destruction of life, men, nature and universal virtues, and then realizing that the only possible way to make a significant change in the environment, it’s creating a massive “wake up” expressed in one of the branches of the human language… Music.

Elvaan then created a rich universe in which all of his songs take place, the world of "Nothing" where an accidental god soon realizes that his creation should not be taken lightly.

This is the world of "Sheol"

Elvaan Ibanfure tempts people to be free to love and hate, without prejudices, always searching the evolution of the spirit & never to give up.


Several demo songs are now under his sleeve, and now Elvaan Ibanfure launches his first official material, under the name of "The Wolves Are No Longer Howling". A 5 minute instrumental opus that transcends the borders of Rock & Metal, showing the world, his unique and singular style of aggressiveness, despair, pain, hate, love and thirst of justice and change. With catchy and powerful guitars, deep and vibrant bass lines, explosive drums charged with rhythm and the finesse and class of strings and brass sections makes it clear that this is music for the intelligent, music for the elite. This is his new vision of Metal, his particular vision of Music.


Genre : electronic, metal, acoustic, ambient, industrial, instrumental, neoclassical, post-metal, post-rock, progressive

Review for OVUM by Chronotope Project

Crafting a concept album is an incredibly difficult task. Tying together a cohesive narrative across a record’s worth of songs isn’t just daunting, it’s an endeavour that even some of the industry’s finest have failed to do memorably. This task, however, becomes notably more difficult when you’re dealing in the abstract via instrumental soundscapes. That is what Chronotope Project, the moniker of composer Jeffrey Ericson Allen, attempts to do with his latest project, ‘Ovum.’
