Happy new year!

Hi everyone! 

Today it's 31st of December and there are only a few hours left until the year finishes - wow, time goes by so fast, doesn't it?

The other day I was just checking the posts I've been writing and I came to one that I wrote exactly one year ago, in this blog. This time last year I was thanking y'all for reading me, for being here supporting what I do... last year I was happy to announce that among my blogs I had reached over 14K reads, and it seemed so crazy. You might think that it's not much, and it's not if we compare it to other bloggers... but I never liked comparing myself to others. 

A few weeks ago, I reached 30K reads among my blogs, and it didn't seem to me as much when I saw it, however, when I read that last year I had half of the reads, wow, it started seemed like much more! Also, last year, my first novel that I published on wattpad had reached 1K reads... now I have 3 stories that are over 1K reads.

I don't write with the purpose of getting much reads or having followers, that's not my thing. However, it's more than recomforting to see that there are many people who read what I write, that there are people who enjoy it and that I have a solid number of reads that keeps growing and growing. It's amazing to write when you know that there are actually people reading you and that you have a solid audience. Let's keep growing, right guys? 

So, without further delay, I've got to thank you guys. I've thanked you before and I'll do it again because it means the world to me. Y'all are awesome and I hope that you enjoy not only this day but also the year that's coming. I hope you have a happy new year and that everything goes amazing, my best wishes xx

Christmas is here!

Hey guys! 

Today it's 24th of December, which means it's Christmas Eve! And, the best way to celebrate that is with some cool rock Christmas music, don't you think so? I find the classic Christmas music kind of boring, but with a punk or rock vibe it's so much better, right? 

So, here we go with a 5 Christmas Songs With a Punk Vibe!

1. To begin with, Sunrise Skater Kids don't only give a punk vibe to the song they chose, but also they change the lyrics adapted to the punk world and youth!

2. The guys from Simple Plan share with us their Christmas List, keeping the sound from their first albums but using it in an original Christmas song by the pop-punk band! 

3. Next, the guys from Bad Religion want a White Christmas, but definitely their white Christmas is a white punk Christmas! 

4. Well, we cannot forget the classics, and The Ramones showed us their own punk way of wishing us a Merry Christmas!

5. Last, but not least, we have Set It Off, telling us what they'll do This Christmas ;)

I hope you've enjoyed these punk Christmas songs as much as I did. Also, I wish y'all a Merry Christmas, hope you have amazing holidays and a great time xx

"Jet Black Heart"

Hi there! 

Today, the pop-punk/pop rock band 5 Seconds of Summer has released the official music video for their song "Jet Black Heart". This is the third single off their album "Sounds Good, Feels Good", and, as a consecuence, the third music video off the album. 

This track is one of the most emotional ones from the album, and the video follows the same line as well. If I had to describe the song in a few words, I would probably say: inner demons, inner pain - it's just about that. After all, we're all a little broken inside, but it's not something visible, it's not something easy to see or to notice. 

The video is an emotional one, which suits the song's meaning perfectly and gives that essence I was talking about that we're all a little broken, right? We're not so different after all.

"I need you to know what you've done"

Hello everyone! 

Today, I'm talking about two songs: "You Want A Battle? (Here's A War)" and "Venom", both by Bullet For My Valentine. Why am I talking about two songs at once instead of writing two different posts about each song? 

Well, the meaning of the two songs and the videos are pretty related, so I think I'll go with that. If we put the two songs together we have a full event that is more complete if we don't talk only about one of the songs. 

First of all, I should start clearing up what the songs talk about - abuse. Even though in the videos the example which is shown is domestic abuse, the meaning itself can include any other kind of abuse. Both songs talk about abuse, from the same perspective, which is the person abused, the victim. 

The difference between the songs is that they show different parts of the process that the victim's going through inside, the physical process they're going through... I hope you understand what I mean. 

"You Want A Battle? Here's A War" talks from the perspective of the victim when the victim is being abused. Meanwhile the song passes by, the victim is suffering because of the abuser, but know the victim is realizing what's happening, which is unfair and he/she doesn't want the situation to carry on that way. What does he/she want? Revenge. The victim is tired of being the victim and wants the abuser to realize what he/she has done the only way he/she can truly realize that... going through the same. 

The song also talks about how the abuser needs to abuse others to feel alive, to be alive. Usually, abusers, bullies have a very low self esteem, and they abuse others to feel better with themselves. 

At the end of the song, it seems like the victim finally has escaped from the abuser - the abuser is gone. Nevertheless, the consequences for the person who's been abused don't end there, that's why I decided to talk about both songs together, and why Bullet For My Valentine probably made the decision of making the video of "Venom" as a continuation of the previous one. 

Now the victim's "free", the abuser is gone. What happens? That isn't enough. The victim can't forget the abuser, what happened... it all comes back in flashbacks, as a "taste of your venom". The victim wants to move on, not to ever look back... but everything's there, even though the abuser is gone. If you've ever read anything about abuse, you will know what I'm talking about. Wherever you look for information about abuse, there's something they always mention... the psychological aftermaths, which are the "venom" the song talks about. 

Also, the song talks about how, even though the victim has recognised what the abuser was doing and has separated from him/her, the victim feels that he/she deserves the abuser, what the abuser was doing... whether it's because the abuser is telling them so or not. However, the victim expresses clearly the hatred towards the abuser, who is also playing the victim, something that hurts the victim even more.

No matter how hard the victim tries, it's like the victim can't forget what happen, can't avoid those feelings... it's like being trapped without a way out. 

I know that you can probably come to all these conclusions by yourselves by listening to the song, but I thought that it was interesting to mention how the songs are related and how they talk about something that happens more than people think. People usually have the wrong idea of what abuse actually is for two reasons: 
- They think that emotional abuse isn't abuse, and try to excuse it in different ways. They don't take it as seriously as it has to be taken. 
- They think that once the abuser's gone, everything's okay again - and it isn't always okay. 

People don't usually talk about this topic, and I'm glad that this band did, and the way they did it was brilliant - expressing the feeling as they truly are and in a very deep way. It hits home.

5 'Small' Bands You Must Check Out!

Hello there! 

Today, as I did last month, I want to change a little bit the script (shall I call it that way?) of this blog, like the stuff I write monthly, since I find it repetitive and that isn't cool to me. 

This time, I decided to share with you 10 bands which aren't very known worldwide, you know, not the typical famous ones, the ones growing and fighting for their space in the world of music! Maybe I've already told you about some of them in posts of news or of covers, but I'll try not to repeat myself. 

1. I'll start with one of my favorite ones, Suck It Up! These guys with a pop-punk vibe that brings anyone back to the 00's that will definitely lift up your mood. Pop-punk's not dead, right guys? ;)

2. Coming from the UK, Through Your Eyes not only shows us that they have great music qualities and write very cool music, but also they show us that they can make very cool music videos to fit them!

3. They're One Mile Left and they're Back In Town! Okay, the bad joke's over... these guys from Germany with this cool pop-punk style and home-made videos are definitely worth a try!

4. Now we cross the lake and go to Florida, where we find the guys from Palm Trees & Power Lines jumping and singing to the rhythm of pop-punk!

5. Last, but not least, we have Send Request! They'll wake up the revel and angry teen inside you and will make you get up and do whatever you want to!

I hope you guys liked these bands, let me know your thoughts below in the comments! Here you can watch the YouTube playlist where I add videos of bands I enjoy - you can also request me some bands to talk about here or just for me to check them out ^-^

"It's too late to apologize"

Hey guys! 

Today, I was just listening to the song "Apologize" by OneRepublic when something came to my mind - it's basically like the song says. I started to wonder where's the point of no return when it comes to apologies. I started to wonder when do we say 'enough' and decide that we no longer accept any apologies. 

There's a moment when someone who has really hurt you, who has let you down so badly, apologizes. They say they're sorry, maybe they even say that it's the last time, that they didn't mean it. I'm in favor of apologies, don't give me to wrong - I'm the first one to apologize when I make a mistake or hurt someone. And forgiving it's okay, because we're all human and make mistakes. 

Nevertheless, sometimes, an apology isn't enough. When you get hurt many times by the same person you start to wonder if you actually want to forgive them. You start to wonder if their words are actually true, or if they're only lies, just like it has happened many times before. I've been there. 

There you see the person, a person you really care about and maybe you love that person, just like in the song. They're saying they're sorry, that they need you - but you've seen that before. They've apologized before and then stabbed you in the back, and this time you tell yourself that you've had enough, that it's too late. Even though that person means the world to you, even though you love that person more than anything in the world, even though you need them... you just can't forgive them for what they did or said. You're afraid of being hurt the same way again, you might even be afraid of the person who's apologizing. 

There are moments in which you just can't forgive someone - it's already too late to apologize.

"Makeshift Love"

Hi guys! 

Only a week ago, Good Charlotte was announcing their coming back. Not only they annouced that, but also we've already had the chance of watching a new music video by them, isn't that amazing? The single they previewed, "Makeshift Love" has its music video, which you can check out now! What do you think about it? 

In my opinion, they're keeping their old sound, which is one of the things I like the most about them, so, I couldn't be happier. If we mix that with a funny video, we have "Makeshift Love". I can't wait to hear more new stuff by them. I.'m really excited for new music, what about you?

"Speak Soft"

Hello there! 

Only a few hours ago, the pop-punk band As It Is released the official music video for their song "Speak Soft". This is the third single and music video off their first album 'Never Happy, Ever After". 

The video, just like the song, is about being between trying to bring someone you disappointed back to your life and wondering if you really deserve it. Well, that's my personal interpretation of the song! I really enjoy the lyrics of the song, especially the part that says: "I'd never choose to be me" - I relate to that one. And, I think that many people relate to that part too. Sometimes (or many times), I just wonder if I'd choose to be myself if I had the chance or not. The answer basically depends of my mood. Would you choose to be you? 

Besides that, the song also brings up the concept of progression. It talks about those moments when we see that we're not progressing at all, even though our intentions are good. We try to move forward and progress, but it feels like we're stuck somewhere.

Another meaning I see behind the lyrics is the feeling that you always make mistakes and let a certain person down, when maybe you don't make that many mistakes. After all, we all make mistakes and screw it all up sometimes, don't we?

I'm really excited to announce that Good Charlotte is back! They've comfirmed that they've reunited, which is more than amazing. Honestly, hearing the good news brightened my day. We've also got the chance of listening to a small clip with what seems to be the preview of a new song which can be listened in the Alternative Press page. Are you looking forward to listening to new stuff by them? I surely am!

Let's celebrate it listening to some old GC!

Hello guys! Happy Halloween ^-^ 

Today, I was going to do a "10 covers", and it was the turn of one-man covers, but then a good idea came to my mind. 5 covers of the song 'This Is Halloween' which are very cool definitely looked like a nice idea - and is also chaning a bit could be cool. 

1. To begin with, the lead singer of As It Is brings us a very cool Screamo version of the song!

2. Secondly, we have a very frightening metal version by Jonathan Young featuring Travis Carte that will make you freeze - but that you'll really enjoy:

3. Eva's Reason, is also bringing us a rock version of the song, mixing many different voices with different styles, which make this rock cover amazing: 

4. Who said metal covers needed screaming to be amazing? Pellek shows us how they aren't needed always, with his cover of the song: 

5. Last, but not least, we have Real Chanty with this great cover of the song! 

I hope you guys enjoyed these covers! What are you doing this Halloween? And what are you dressing up as? ;)

"Beneath The Skin (Acoustic)"

Hey there! What's up? 

Only a while ago, the post-hardcore band Memphis May Fire released the official music video for their song "Beneath The Skin" acoustic. It's such a beautiful song to version in an acoustic way, which gives a song a different perspective - a more emotional one, probably. I'm not going to review the song itself, because I already did so - click here in case you missed it! 

This version probably turned a bunch of people into tears or made their hair stand on the end - it gives such a powerful and deep message. Very beautiful performance guys, keep it up!

"I Don't Wanna Go to Bed"

Hi guys!

First of all, I wanted to thank you all, because recently this blog has reached 6,000 reads, which is totally sick! So, thank you so much, it means a lot to me :)

Well, today, the pop-punk band Simple Plan has released their brand new single "I Don't Wanna Go to Bed", with its official music video. This song has a lot to be talked about, so there we go. 

Let's be honest, this song doesn't seem to have a good acceptance among Simple Plan fans. Why? People don't like change, which is nothing new - and this song show us a different side of this band, which is pretty separated from their pop-punk sound from older albums. Nonetheless, that's not something new either, since their latest full-length album "Get Your Heart On!" had some tracks like "Summer Paradise" which is a pop, radio friendly song.

What's the "problem" with that? Why do fans don't truly agree with that? 

Before I carry on, I want to clarify that this is the opinion I've seen in most of the fans, reading comments and listening to different opinions - which doesn't mean that it's what everyone thinks. 

Simple Plan fans, mostly, are people who started getting into this band because of songs like "Welcome To My Life", "Perfect", "I'm Just A Kid"... all these pop-punk songs, as their earlier albums, are songs about being young, angry at the world, feeling and being rejected, being left out... basically the emotions that people experience while growing up. After all, that's what pop-punk music is mostly about - being young, rejected, and not finding a place to belong, summing-up.

For this reason, it's easy to understand that fans don't quite agree with this "change" that is visible in this song. But, don't freak out guys, "Get Your Heart On!" and "Get Your Heart On: The Second Coming" had songs which were more "pop", but they still had the kind of songs which were relatable and accurate. I bet you can't argue with me that "Lucky One", and "This Song Saved My Life", per example, are very relatable and accurate, right? And, to me, "Summer Paradise" brings me some really sweet memories.

On the other side, they're no longer teenagers, they've grown up and they want to experiment with different things. I wouldn't want to do always the same if I were a musician, would you? I would like to try different things, I don't know. 

Believe me, I prefer the relatable and emotional songs rather than the catchy radio friendly ones, but, truth  be told - no band stays the same forever. Maybe, instead of looking at it in a pessimistic way, we should see it differently. After all, whenever we want to listen to the relatable songs, we can. And different songs with different sounds isn't that bad. Don't you think so? 

Truth be told - the video is funny, and the song is rad.

'Black Lines'

Hey everyone! After two years of waiting to have a new album by them, 'Black Lines', the 5th studio album by the band Mayday Parade is finally out!

We had already had the chance of listening to three songs off the album: "Keep In Mind, Transformigation Is A New Technology", "One Of Them Will Destroy The Other" and "Letting Go", songs which gave us the possibility of having an idea of what the album would be like. 

As some fans have called it, the album could be considered a "throwback to the pop-punk style they had in A Lesson in Romantics". For that reason, more than call it a brand new sound, actually it's more accurate to refer to it as an album with their old sound. However, that doesn't mean the album is bad or anything - in my view their old sound is great and probably the reason why it's having a very good reponse from fans up to date.

10 Full Band Covers You Must Watch | P.2

Hi there! Today, I'm back again, as every month, with 10 covers for y'all! This time, I'm bringing you 10 full band covers of rock/metal songs for you to enjoy. 

1. To begin with, here's an amazing rendition of My Chemical Romance's song "Helena", bringing back many feelings that MCR always gave and gives to us, Radnor shows us that they have the talent necessary to make a good cover of this song. 

2. Coming from France, the guys from Xplore Yesterday cover "Coming Down", by Five Finger Death Punch, giving the song a bit of their own style, but keeping the essence of the song. Hands down! 

3. Now we travel a bit to the South to find Dreaming For A Day, Spanish band which covers "Sunrise" by Our Last Night, putting their heart in this song and transmitting the feelings it's supposed to!

4. We're all used to watching studio quality videos performed by professional artists. However, these 8th graders show us that they have talent indeed. Covering "It Ends Tonight" by The All-American Rejects, performing at a middle school talent show, At Long Last might surprise some of you!

5. Is that blink-182? Are we in the 00's again? I wish! Nevertheless, the guys from By Far As Hell can bring you back to those days with this sick cover of "All Th Small Things", which sounds more than alike to blink-182!

6. Let's continue in this 00's line! And when we talk about the 00's and pop punk/punk rock, who do you think about mostly? Well, I don't know who you have in your mind, but I do have Green Day in my mind. The guys from American Idiots rock the song "Basket Case" by Green Day, showing us that punk's not dead! 

7. Now it's time to get emotional with this soulful cover of "Wonderwall" by Oasis, made by the Italian band American Dreamz, which turn the cover even more beautiful mixing the clips of the cover with beautiful landscapes!

8. Playing "My Hero" by Foo Fighters isn't easy. However, About Wayne has a point on how to play it very well, showing us their musical skills in this amazing cover! 

9. The guys from EZ Music Lessons, featuring Coral Smith on vocals might bring you to tears with this beautiful cover of the song "Pieces" by Sum 41 which is beyond amazing!

10. Last, but not least, we have Jared Parker (band) from Russia rocking the song"The Kill" by 30 Seconds to Mars - aren't they great?

So this is it guys! I hope you enjoyed these covers, let me know what you think and feel free to share any full band covers that you enjoy or you'd like me to share here! I put all the full band covers in a YouTube playlist that you can watch here! Have a nice day guys ^-^

Matt McCormack leaving Amasic

Hey everyone! 

Today I'm here with some news from the band Amasic. They've recently announced that their bass player, Matt McCormack has made the decision of leaving the band. Okay, before you all think what people usually think when someone leaves a band, I want to clarify that he hasn't left for any fight or something like that - just in case you thought so. 

He's made that decision because he's studying in college and he's decided to focus on that. This is the message he posted: 

To all Amasic fans, 
As you may have heard, I have left the band. Last year, in the fall of 2014, I began my first semester studying music in college. After completing my first year, I've decided to pursue my studies more seriously and am expecting to spend at least 7 more years in school. OF course the time came for me to make a decision concerning my role in Amasic. Realistically I had to admit that any touring would be impossible for me. Having accepted this, I've decided that I am no longer the best fit for Amasic and that Janick, Jessy and Mehdi deserve someone who can commit themselves to the band and put into it as much heart and soul as they do. 
I'd like to thank the guys for helping me learn so much about the industry and wishing me luck with my own career. Thank you all for the love and support I've received through the last couple of years. I'll be around at their shows every now and then so if you see me, feel free to come say hello!
I wish Amasic the best of luck. I'm sure my replacemente will be great and do more than just get the job done.
It's been a goot! See you guys in the music scene.
Thank you,

So this is the letter from Matt. As a fan, all I can say is that you're an amazing bass player and that I wish you, Matt, the best of the luck wherever your path leads you to. Here you have a thankful fan, keep it up man! 

Also, besides that, Amasic is looking for a bass player! You must be: 
- From the Montreal area. 
- Aged between 18 and 22.
- Able to sing backup vocals. 
- Able to practice at least twice a week. 
- Bilingual. 
- Serious. 
- Awesome and hairy (optional).

Those are the conditions in case you're interested, you can contact find the rest things to do here. If you're not interested or can't try for any reason, anyway, don't forget to share so more people hear about it and Amasic can get a new bass player soon! Also, good luck guys finding a new bass player and whatever's next :)

Our Last Night collabs with Matty Mullins!

The post-hardcore/alternative band Our Last Night has released today a brand new cover! These guys are always surprising us making their own versions of radio-friendly songs, turning them into rock ones. Sometimes they even collab with other artists, like they've done with Cody Carson from Set It Off, or Craig Owens. 

This time, their latest cover of the song "Drag Me Down", originally by One Direction, features the singer of the band Memphis May Fire, Matty Mullins! Have you already checked it out? What do you think of this collaboration?

'That's The Spirit' out now!

Hey guys! 

Today, 11th September, the post-hardcore/rock band "Bring Me The Horizon" has just released their brand new album 'That's the Spirit'. This album shows a clear change in the direction of this band's music style. 

In their previous albums, the band followed a metalcore/post-hardcore style. However, in this one, the album follows a rock/alternative direction. Is this better? Is this worse? What does the audience think of this change? 

We can find both opinions - people who don't like it, and people who do like it. 

All bands evolve, and if a band stays the same way forever, it's probably convicted to disappear. All bands change over the years, that's a fact. Some do it in a more noticeable way, and others in a way more progressive. Change doesn't always have to be bad. 

In my opinion, I like this new direction they're taking, and I'm enjoying the album no matter that it's softer than usual. What about you? What do you think about 'That's The Spirit'? 

"Hold On"

Hello everyone! 

Today I'm in a such emotional mood, so all I can write is emotional stuff. It's probably going to get a bit personal and emotional as well, but that's what happens when it's late at night and you listen to sad music, I guess. 

I've been trying to write this post for weeks, let's hope I get to make it today. 

The song I was listening to is called "Hold On", by Good Charlotte. While I was listening to it, I took a look at the date, and it came to my mind that it's just been a year since I first listened to that song (well, some days more than a year, but, whatever). You might be wondering, how do you remember? I exactly remember that day and everything that happened. Actually it was a normal day, just saying. But it's when I first listened to Good Charlotte. I was feeling really down that night, and I decided to check GC out, since I had heard about them by some people and also in a Simple Plan's album they were mentioned. I checked some songs out, and they were pretty cool to me, so I kept listening to more and more songs, until I saw "Hold On" in the suggestions box. The title caught my eye so I listened to it. All I could think of was: "how do you know?". I didn't know why or how, all I knew was that that song was what I really needed to listen to in that moment, those were the words I needed to hear. I felt understood, I felt like they knew me, even when they didn't.

Some people don't believe in the real effect music can have, but I do. I have to believe in it since music has had and still has a huge effect in me. 

I've listened to plenty of songs with a very similar meaning that this one, however, there's something that makes "Hold On" different than them. I don't know, there's something about this song that makes it unique. 

Whenever I feel down and listen to it it's like... like I can believe them. Somehow not only they're transmitting something, but also they're making you feel the exact thing. You can tell that they mean what they say, that they truly understand all they're talking about. 

They're not saying "hold on" because it's trendy to say so. Anyway, it's trendy now, it wasn't that trendy back in 2002 when the song was released. They're giving a clear message of hope because they know what it feels like. 

I've watched and read some interviews about the song, because I wanted to know why they wrote the song. Joel Madden (lead singer of the band) said that the song is a reponse to all the fans that have told them they're struggling or written them letters. Billy Martin (lead guitarist of the band) said that they couldn't answer all those letters so the song was like a huge "thank you" letter for them. 

The song brings up a not-very-talked-about topic - suicide. Not only suicide itself, but its effects to the people around the ones that commit suicide. With the song they're telling those struggling that things do get better and we all go through similar stuff, but it gets better. 

"I don't think, you know, we could have written this songs if we hadn't been there ourselves (...). I know there were those times in my life that I came dangerously close to making some really bad decisions." 

Benji Madden (back-up vocalist and guitarist of the band) says these words, showing that they were really talking from experience when they wrote this song. Also, Joel's words go following that same line:

"We care about all those kids, and it hurts us when they end things because it does get better. I'm living proof."

I think I could go ahead and write thousands of words about this song, because the feelings behind it, what it transmits, what it makes you feel like... it's beyond what I could even explain. For me, personally, it's a very important song in my life and it actually made me realize the power only a song, only 4' 52'' of music could have. It's such a wonderful feeling. The song's helped me when nothing or no one else could, so, thank you, Good Charlotte. 

I've just realized I haven't talked about the music video itself, but I think that it's better that you check that out by yourselves... I can barely watch it without bursting into tears to be honest.

"Better Off Dead"

Hey guys! 

Today, the post-hardcore band 'Sleeping With Sirens' has released the official video for their song "Better Off Dead", off their latest album 'Madness'. 

It's a really cool video, although it can be a bit creepy, which, however, makes it even more enjoyable in my opinion! Talking about the song itself, well, we already got to listen to it before since the album is already out. Nevertheless, let's talk about it! The lyrics are really meaningful and deep, and the instrumental is awesome, heavier than what we got to listen to in their other albums. 

Definitely the video is worth-watching and, if you haven't, and you fancy this band, you should give it a watch!

"Buried Alive"

Hello there! 

So, a few hours ago, the post-hardcore band 'Get Scared' released their newest single "Buried Alive", coming from their upcoming album 'Demons'. 

Doing the opposite as it usually happens with bands, which mostly get 'softer' with time, these guys are proving us that some bands prefer to become 'heavier', at least that's what this single shows us! Not only this single is great, but also is heavier than usual. 

This is the first song we get to listen from 'Demons', so, it's building such good expectatives looking forward to the album! Let's see what we listen to next - will it be this good?

"One Of Them Will Destroy The Other"

Hi my dear readers! 

Yesterday in Spain, today in the U.S., the pop-punk/alternative band 'Mayday Parade' released the official music video for their latest single "One Of Them Will Destroy The Other (feat. Dan Lambton)", coming from their new album 'Black Lines' which will be avaiable October 9th. This is the second song we get to listen from their new album, which is bringing so far a very cool pop-punk vibe that I'm personally loving!

This album seems like it's going to be great, at least that's what the two songs we've listened to make me think. 

This month has brought us some really cool albums, and it looks like this fall is going to bring us some cool albums more, let's see how it all ends up ;)

Hello there! 

Today the pop-punk/alternative band from Montreal 'Simple Plan' has released the official music video for their new single "Boom", coming from their new album! We had already had the chance to listen to it before in some live events, such as the APMAs. It's the second single we get to listen from their fifth album, after listening to "Saturday". I liked this new track better, and, honestly think it's pretty cool and it's already stuck in my head! Also the music video is rad, featuring other musicians in the video, which made me excited when I saw it today :)

Astronauts (Simple Plan fandom) have been waiting for their fifth album and, we're finally getting to listen to more of it! I don't know about you, but I'm really looking forward to it, I can't wait. Since it's a Simple Plan album, I'm sure it's going to be great, specially after listening to "Boom". What do you think?

'Venom' out now!

What's up guys? 

Yesterday, 14th of August, the heavy metal band "Bullet For My Valentine" released their brand new album 'Venom'. It had been two years since they released a new album, and there we have these guys with something new for us. 

We had already had the possibility to listen to some jams from it, like the singles: "Raising Hell", "No Way Out", "You Want A Battle (Here's A War)", "Army Of Noise" and "Playing God". With such great singles, the album is what it was expected to be. Coming from this band, I personally only could expect great things - and definitely this album wasn't a disappoint. 

As always, they bring us relatable lyrics along with amazing instrumentals. What else can I say? I think that the album speaks for itself. I'm going to share with you one of my favorite and most relatable songs for me off the album. What's your favorite track so far?

What's up everyone? 

Today, the electronicore/post-hardcore band "I See Stars" has released a brand new single coming from their new album "Phases", which is going to be released August 28th. Their new album is an acoustic one - as a lover of acoustic music, I'm very excited to hear the whole album!

I've seen many comments on this new track criticizing its sound and stuff. Honestly, I've loved it, the lyrics were beautiful, as the whole song itself. It's okay that bands explore and try new things - actually it'd become boring if they kept doing exaclty the same thing forever, right? 

As I've said before, I personally love this song and how this bands sound acoustic. Many hardcore bands can't really make good acoustic stuff, but these guys are proving they can. 

On the other hand, here are some deep words by Devin and Andrew Oliver from the band that were in the description of the video:

"During our long 10 year journey, full of ups and downs; at the end of each "phase" resulted a brand new record. We felt that it was finally time to reflect, something we've wanted to do for years. We've written so many songs together, and have been through so much as both friends and band-mantes. Inspired and renewed we went to work testing sounds and getting out of our comfort zone to create something that could say it all. Every record we've written has different colors and shades. We felt these songs could some together as a "cheers" to every show we've played, every person we've met, every year we shared pouring our hearts into ISS since 2005."

Hey there!

Today, I'm going to review another band! This time, I'm going to talk to you about 'MadCraft'. They're a power pop-punk band from Finland, formed in 2010. 

With Tom Nuorivaara in the vocals and guitar, Juho Rinne in vocals and guitar as well, Otto Uotila in drums and vocals, and Jesse Mäläskä in bass and vocals; this band brings us to the beginnings of pop-punk with their sound. 

I first heard about this band after finding Otto's drum covers of songs by All Time Low and Blink-182. I really enjoyed them and started checking stuff from their YouTube channel. After checking the covers out, I decided to check out their original stuff, which definitely was a good choice! 

The band has released two EPs, an acoustic album and several singles. They have released nine music videos, and early this year they released a new single called "Please Return My Heart".

If you like bands such as Blink-182, All Time Low, Boys Like Girls, Simple Plan, Good Charlotte... then it's a must for you to check out this band, you won't be disappointed! These four guys form such a talented band, with also very funny videos which seem from the 00's (something I really miss).

"Feed The Fire"

What's up guys? 

Today, the band from the U.K. 'More Than Most' has released a brand new single called "Feed The Fire". This is the fifth song we get to listen to by these guys, and all I can say is that they keep improving each track! 

I already talked here about this guys, so in case you missed it, you can find my small review of this band here.

With a very cool music video showing a footage of them playing live, such powerful and meaningful lyrics, and an instrumental that will definitely lift up your mood, More Than Most shows us that whatever song they put out is different from each other but also they all follow the same line of awesomeness. 

Are you ready to feed the fire in you without letting fear control you as More Than Most teaches us in this song?

Villain Of The Story

Hello everyone!

It's been ages since I last reviewed an artist or band, for that reason, I decided to go back at it and today I'm talking about 'Villain of the Story'. 

Villain of the Story is a Post-Hardcore/metalcore band from Minnesota, currently formed by Christian Grey (vocalist), Logan Bartholomew (vocalist), Sean Wayne (bassist) and Michael Ivers (guitarist). Cody Pauly used to be the guitarist of the band but he left it for personal reasons.

The band has released one EP so far, called "The Prologue", which was released March 3rd of this year. 

The first two songs we got to listen by them were "The Holy One" and "Somebody to Care". Their biggest hit came with the release of their single and official video for "A Life Worth Living". For me, it was the first song I listened to by them, and the one that got me to love them! Actually, it's a really meaningul and deep song that gives a very hopeful and important message to the world about people deserving a chance and moslty about loving and helping others - which is more than important, specially in a society that is becoming more and more heartless. 

Also, the video is very meaninful as well! 

On the other hand, their EP also contains other three amazing songs that don't disappoint at all. 

Villain of the Story played Warped Tour two days ago, and they have a great future in front of them as they seem to grow and grow! They have the talent, the good music, and they're reaching the fans so, the only question is, how long will it take until they lead to success? I think that not much long! 

Below I'm posting one of their singles for you to give it a listen, let me know what you think of them below in the comments and tell me if you'd like me to write a review of their EP! Go!
