DeFox Records and Heart Of Steel Records are really proud to announce the second instrumental solo album of guitar wizard Ricky De Camargo.

The album titled “Maverick” contains seven instrumental songs featuring guitar riffs, vibrant solos and magnificent keyboards sound. 

Guitarist Ricky De Camargo lives in Brazil and he has played in some rock and metal bands from his country, he love Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, Bumblefoot and all rock guitar masters! 

The release will be published in September 25th - 2020.

The digital album available on every worldwide webstores, iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, Deezer, Google Play, Tidal, Shazam...YouTube Music also.


This will be Ricky's second Instrumental Solo Album. In this record, Ricky bring us the same concept of rock, prog rock and many guitar lines. Everything very well mixed with orchestral arrangements. The album has 7 Instrumental Tracks. All writen and arranged by Ricky in his studio. The record process took around 3 months from start to finish. 


Ricky played, programed and recorded all the guitars, bass, drums, keyboards, synths solos and orchestral arrangements. A truly one man band project. In this album, Ricky put all the best songs that came up during the pre-production. Making a perfect balanced record.

 

The opening track "Maverick" it's a orchestral/prog-metal tune that it's divided in two parts. The first one it's more metal and direct. The second half give us the taste of prog-metal, with odd time signatures, dark riffs that switchs during all the second part, meanwhile synths solos runs during the next two minutes.


The next track "Lifestream" it's a ballad in Re minor. It's a track about overcome depression and keep going.


The third track "Sunrise in your Eyes" was recorded in honor of the Asians. People that Ricky has the greatest respect and admiration.


"Full Throttle, the fourth track, is a more direct rock song on the album. It is about doing the best you can in what you do in this life.


"The Angel's Choir", it's the fifth track from album. It's a more Gospel tune, with several choirs arrangements and several time signatures changes. 11/8, 7/8 and 8/8 to be more precisely. Ricky also wrote the Synth Solo that we have in this one.


The sixth track from "Maverick" it's "Twilight". A track that Ricky wrote many years ago.

According to ricky, he always tried to improve his guitar technique in front of his house watching the sunset.

That was the inspiration for the track.


The last song on the album is "Shadows Will Fade Someday". A complete song from the orchestra with many changes of tones.

To complete the album, Ricky wanted to have a song that would challenge him technically and theoretically, in terms of composition.

Then, after days and days of composing, he finally achieved a harmony that fulfilled the requirements he intended for this song.


Note:

Ricky de Camargo: Guitars, Bass, Drums, Piano, Keyboards, Orchestral and MIDI arrangements.


Mixed and Mastered at Guazzelli's Studios.

When announcing the show, the band explained: "KVELERTAK ONE DAY WORLD TOUR! We had over three weeks left of our European tour when everything started closing down and we had to get back home. Like so many of you right now, we don’t know when we can get back to work and out on the road again. But only boring people get bored. So while we’re waiting for the apocalypse to either wipe us all out or just pass us by this time, we are inviting ourselves into your homes for our Kvelertak One Day World Tour. It’ll be a different type of show (obviously) than you’ve seen us do before and we’ll do some kind of Q&A as well. There will be a special event t-shirt for sale and we’ll put our new tour merch store up online. Hope to see all our fans worldwide for this one. Take care, stay safe, stay home!".




Long awaited, fourth studio album 'Splid' is out now via Rise Records. It is the first from KVELERTAK since 2016's 'Nattesferd' and is also the recorded debut of their new singer, Ivar Nikolaisen, who joined the group in 2018.

Prog Duo JUPITER HOLLOW Announce New Album "Bereavement", Reveal Artwork & Track Listing
New Album "Bereavement" Out June 12th

Pre-Order Available

One of Toronto’s favourite ambient progressive metal/rock duo Jupiter Hollow announce they will be releasing their new album "Bereavement" on June 12th, 2020 to follow their two highly praised recordings “AHDOMN” (2018) and “Odyssey” (2016).

"Bereavement" is the continuation of the storyline from both previous releases. The band further explains:

"A man with unimaginable global power sends important members of his family and society away to a habitable world outside of our solar system in order to salvage humanity. As capable as this man is of salvaging humanity’s dying society on Earth, he finds more solace in the greed and power he has inherited. Victim of his lifelong internal battle with mental instability, he leaves humanity to extinction on Earth. Struggling with this outcome, he sends himself and his ship aimlessly into space, attempts suicide and crashes on a planet in another solar system. Upon awakening, he realizes where he is, and that he will soon meet the remaining faces that have abandoned him, just as he abandoned them, and they’re hungry."
The duo of Grant MacKenzie (Guitar, Bass, Synth) and Kenny Parry (Vocals, Drums, Piano, Synth) that form Jupiter Hollow are here to create an artistic experience unlike anything else in the industry. Inspired from the art of storytelling and adventure, they intend on taking you through an in-depth journey through their discography and encourage listeners to join them for every step along the way. Get ready as Jupiter Hollow will take you on a musical tour, from the studio to the stage, and every place in between. They are your tour guides.

About:

We are Jupiter Hollow. Some people consider us to be alternative metal, some people consider us to be progressive rock, and some people just like what they hear. We don’t believe in genre; we believe genre is an excuse to pigeonhole our sound. For us, we prefer to keep our options open.

When you hear Jupiter Hollow you may feel an overwhelming sense of space, arrangement and instrumentation. However, behind the music there are just 2 humans: Kenny Parry and Grant MacKenzie. We met on Earth in the year of 2015 at a musical gathering, where the universe inevitably conceived Jupiter Hollow. Since then, we’ve expressed part one of a conceptual endeavor called “AHDOMN”. This story is to be continued with the release of our new record “Bereavement” on June 12, 2020.

As for what Jupiter Hollow sounds like, that's for you to determine. We don't care what we sound like, since we don't have control over our destiny. Our path is written, but we must walk it. Therefore, the music has already been created in the future, and we are messengers of the present.
We are from Earth, from your future. Moving forward through time is to move forward through space. We are evolutionary descendants of our past, we evolve from our actions. Jupiter Hollow is here to share the missing link of your human existence.

"If Jupiter Hollow are emblematic of the next generation of progressive metal bands, a bright tomorrow lies ahead. Hugely impressive." ​- Prog Magazine.

"Without a doubt, Jupiter Hollow are elite musicians. Grant and Kenny know exactly how to captivate an audience with their music." - Alex CrazyAce, Host/Executive Producer of 'The Rush' on VIBE105 FM

"When a prog duo emerges with as much talent as Jupiter Hollow you are entitled to feel excited about the future." - Maximum Volume Music
"New listeners can expect to go on a musical journey when hearing Jupiter Hollow." - Barrie Advance

MUNDY'S BAY SHARE NEW SONG/VIDEO "SEASONS PASS"

DEBUT ALBUM "LONESOME VALLEY"DUE OUT MARCH 13th

This Friday, March 13th, Mundy's Bay launched their debut full-length, "Lonesome Valley", on Pure Noise Records, and today the Montreal-based band have shared their new song "Seasons Pass" and its accompanying music video. "Seasons Pass" is a buoyant cut of shimmering indie pop that showcases Mundy's Bay ability to seamlessly blend the melody and mood of dreampop with the driving energy of post-punk. Recorded by producer/engineer Kurt Ballou (Converge, Joyce Manor, Code Orange), "Lonesome Valley" immediately envelopes the listener in this enticing balance of atmosphere and hooks.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s7pS83Eq3WE&feature=youtu.be

The members of Mundy’s Bay (vocalist/keyboardist Esther Mulders, guitarist Victor Beaudoin, guitarist John Donnelly and bassist Will Love) met in Montreal’s punk and hardcore scene, but set out to form a band with no stylistic confines. That highly collaborative and open approach to writing, along with a shared love of ‘80s and ‘90s musical touchstones, forms the band's core sound. Mulder's serene vocals guide the listener through dream-like explorations of love, loss, and longing, whether she's singing overtop of chiming guitar passages or waves of reverb-drenched distortion and winding bass lines. It's an impressive debut sure to please fans of moody post-punk and shimmering guitar pop alike.
