Canada’s ELEKTRIC MISTRESS Conjure A Hazy Occult Séance In “Chapter 99” + New EP Out June 2022

Halifax, Nova Scotia’s Elektric Mistress has a new EP “Chapter 99” coming out, which promises to be a sonic blast of psychedelic groove tinged with occult overtones and sludgy riffs. This will be their second EP, following their self-titled in 2019. Since then, they have added a new guitarist and a potent new layer of sounds for fans to discover. The first single they are releasing is the title track, a stomper that will get you moving and vibing to the lyrical themes of communing with the dead. The band explains further:

„Chapter 99 was honestly not the first choice for this single; we had some trouble deciding just what to present, because we think they’re all pretty ok, heh. We decided to get an objective set of ears to sort out our predicament, and this one stood out above the rest. It’s about trying to connect with the other side. It has a definite occult overtone, in the oldest heavy music tradition.”

Having a second guitarist has added to the complexity of the band, although their evolution has remained fairly steady over the past couple of years. They have started to incorporate guitar harmonies to complement their stoner rock style but still leave room to be unique and creative and resonate with listeners. Lyrics are inspired by events, people, memories, feelings, or certain energy. There are plenty of psychedelics, sci-fi, witchcraft, and apes!

The EP “Chapter 99” was entirely recorded and self-produced by the band, and all the stringed instruments and keys are digital. It was mixed and mastered by Alex Burris at Fang Recordings, and the EP artwork was done by Ricardo Arreola.

Elektric Mistress is not out to reinvent the wheel, they deliver straightforward rock n’ roll vibes for good times and bad. They are recommended listening for fans of Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, and Pink Floyd.

About:
Channeling the energy of inspirations such as Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, and Pink Floyd, Halifax, Canada Elecktic Mistress is all about the groove with their face-punching psychedelic stoner rock firmly rooted in what has come before, but also pushing towards what is ahead. If you’re looking for a true retro psychedelic synth-rock experience with a progressive edge, Elektric Mistress is here to deliver! Take a deep breath and ride the wave through a hypnotic haze of electric highs and sedated tones to take you back in time and return again.

Comprised of guitarists Kyle Cantfell (Guitar) and Jason Cantfell, bassist Kieran Richardson, vocalist Maxwell Poole, keyboardist, Riley MacDonald and drummer Valencia Canales , Elektric Mistress began their journey through oblivion in 2018, making noise on the Canadian East coast scene, which included performing on the area’s largest event, the Maritime Metal and Hard Rock Festival during the same year of their conception.

The band released their first debut in 2019 with their self-titled EP showcasing their unique soundscape of stoner rock ignited with crunchy, groovy guitar riffs, bombastic drums, dirty keys, and choice bass licks plus loud and raspy vocals. Now in 2022, the band returns with their follow-up and sophomore EP „Chapter 99” for release in June 2022.

The band adds: „Friends, this EP has been a long time coming. As a lot of other bands experienced at the beginning of the pandemic, not being able to gather as a full band or find open studio space kind of made making music difficult. So we decided to do it mostly by ourselves, at a distance. With some help, we got it done. We’re stoked to finally present it for streaming everywhere. We hope it’s worth a listen or three. We think we’ve been steady on the course as far as evolution goes for this next release. However, now that guitarist Jason Cantfell has joined the band, we’ve been doing a lot more guitar harmonies and stuff we couldn’t do before; the end part in Cocaine Johnny is a good example of that. Definitely expect more of that in the future.”

„Chapter 99” is due out on June 17, 2022 and will be available on all digital platforms.

Vezi trailerul pentru noul ‘Avatar: The Way of Water’

Pregătește-te să te întorci în Pandora cu frumosul teaser trailer pentru a doua parte a francizei Avatar, Avatar: The Way of Water.

Teaserul îi surprinde pe Neytiri (interpretat de Zoe Saldana) și Jake Sully (interpretat de Sam Worthington), în timp ce își trăiesc viața împreună, într-o armonie perfectă, dar se pare că binele nu va dura prea mult, deoarece se pare că războiul se întoarce.

Participanții la CinemaCon au văzut primele imagini a celui de-al doilea film Avatar, acum câteva zile. Deși au încercat să împărătașească descrieri despre frumusețea filmului – trailerul demonstrează că doar cuvintele, nu pot descrie strălucirea Pandorei și a tărâmului Avatar. Este ceva ceea ce fanii trebuie să experimenteze.

Avatar: The Way of Water va fi cu siguranță o experiență specială pentru public, deoarece Na’vi trebuie să lupte din nou pentru a-și proteja pământul, modul de viață și cel mai important, familia lor.

După 14 ani vedem că tema vitală este uniunea și legătura familială pe care James Cameron intenționează să o aducă pe parcursul francizei.

Avatar: The Way of Water îi are în rolurile principale pe Zoe Saldaña, Sam Worthington, Stephen Lang, Michelle Yeoh, Giovanni Ribisi, Sigourney Weaver, Kate Winslet, Oona Chaplin și Jermaine Clement.

Avatar: The Way of Water va ajunge în cinematografe pe 16 decembrie.

Intoarcerea olandezilor vii – The Amsterdams in Control

Formatia bucuresteana The Amsterdams revine in clubul care i-a consacrat, Control, sambata, 14 mai, cu incepere de la ora 20.

Trupa a intrat in al 17-lea an de existenta, iar dupa o pauza de concerte si release-uri a decis sa reia lucrul la albumul cu numarul 5 dar si show-urile live, primul programat fiind cel din Bucuresti, dupa care urmeaza pe 20 mai, Iasi.

Pentru concertul din 14 mai, cei 4 (Andrei Hategan, Andrei Ungureanu, Ovidiu Bejan, Dragos Crifca) au pregatit un setlist eclectic si cat se poate de electronic, ce include piese de pe toate albumele trupei, dar si cateva piese de pe viitorul material de studio. Biletele se gasesc pe site-ul Eventbook, iar studentii au o reducere de 40 %, pe baza carnetului de student.

Cel mai nou single al celor 4 amsterdamezi se numeste Sad Smile, lansat pe 3 mai, o incursiune psy / distopica intr-o lume din ce in ce mai mecanicizata, in care omul e atomizat, parte a unei societati ghidate de masini. Piesa poate fi ascultata pe toate platformele de streaming, dar si pe youtube.

Comandă Bilete la concertul Placebo @ Romexpo

La inceputul anului The Ams au lansat The Humming Song, manifest eco ce vorbeste despre planeta care a luat-o razna din cauza schimbarilor climatice cauzate de om, cu un clip cyber punk inspirat de cinematografia asiatica, realizat de Norbert, avand-o in rol principal pe actrita Ana Guran. Vezi clipul aici.

Cele 2 single-uri lansate anul acesta vin sa intregeasca tabloul cu cel lansat inainte de pandemie, Avatar, turnura stilistica fiind remarcata atat la nivel de compozitie, cat si la nivel de versuri. Chitarile au trecut in background, elementele electronice  (synth & drums) sunt mai pronuntate, iar povestile amoroase au lasat loc unor ganduri influentate de schimbarile sociale prin care trece societatea. Toate cele 3 single-uri mentionate mai sus sunt lucrate cu Adam Whittaker si deja anunta tonul pe care-l va avea urmatorul album al trupei.

The Amsterdams inseamna Andrei Hategan (voce, chitara), Andrei Ungureanu (chitara), Ovidiu Bejan  (synth, drum machine, chitara, backing vocals) si Dragos Crifca (bass, backing vocals). Inceput in 2005 in cluburi underground, ca o alternativa la scena locala de rock, drumul trupei a luat incet si sigur calea indie rock-ului influentat de trupe de afara precum Bloc Party, Interpol sau Arcade Fire. In timp trupa a reusit sa-si contruiasca propriul stil, in care elementele electronice se amesteca cu chitarile distorsionate si psihedelice pentru a crea o atmosfera unica in peisajul rock-ului autohton. Primele concerte in afara nu au intarziat sa apara, imediat dupa ce au bifat toate fest-urile interne, totul culminand cu un turneu de sustinere a canadienilor Wolf Parade in 2010, Dan Boeckner fiind invitat la chitara si pe una din piesele albumului Electromagnetica, lansat in 2011, This burial ground’s for two. In paralel cu turneele din tara, The Ams au cantat la festivaluri in Croatia sau India, au cantat de mai multe ori in Anglia, incusiv la fEAST, au fost la prima editie Europavox din Franta, la festivalul Make Musik STHLM din Suedia, pe langa concerte de club in Spania, Scotia sau Italia.

A urmat albumul acustic, Winds Apart in 2013, in care piese mai vechi au fost reorchestrate acustic, pe langa cele noi, facute special pentru acest album, dupa care electronicul Eternity for dummies in 2016, lansat impreuna cu Universal Romania.

Dupa mai multe schimbari de componenta si management si un permanent ping pong intre formula cu tobe acustice sau cea cu drum machine, The Amsterdams se pregatesc de un nou material de studio, al cincilea din cariera trupei, intinsa de la Adolessons la Eternity for dummies. Stay tuned!
