A modern day classic cover.
Today's cover is a relatively new one, having only been played for the first time February 14th 2019, on the Australian alternative radio station triple j's segment Like A Version, where many future covers will come from. But today we're shining the spotlight on the powerful 'Bulls on Parade' by Denzel Curry.
I had an inkling that Crossfaith would drop something this year, and it turns out I was right. The Japanese Electronicore group won't be releasing an album though, but rather an EP titled Species on the 22nd of May, hence the singles 'Endorphin' back in Feb and 'Digital Parasite' on Thursday.
Only a Prog Metal band could even think of making a Divine Comedy concept EP.
Flight of Eden are a Reading (UK) based 4 piece Prog Metal group, who for their second release decided to go all out. Instead of dropping just another EP or even a regular full length album, Flight of Eden went with a concept EP based on The Inferno part of Dante Aligheri's The Divine Comedy, simply called Dante's Inferno.
Enter Shikari are one of those bands that never fails to excite me when they release new music, simply because they don't do the same thing twice and are always experimenting. It also helps that their lyrics are very political and thought provoking.
I've been a massive fan of Birds of Tokyo for years, I first discovered their music back in '07, when they dropped their record Day One with the amazing 'Wayside'; a fan was born the second I heard that song. I followed their music religiously before leaving Australia, even when they continually slid from Alt to Pop Rock and back again. I still loved their music, because no matter what sound they'd use, I could always hear singer Ian Kenny's soul laid out for all to hear.
