PATRÓN Released Debut Video/Single ‘Room With A View’ Announce Self Titled Debut Album

Sleaze rockers PATRÓN have unveiled their single ‘Room With A View,’ the first taken from their debut self-titled album, which is set for release via Klonosphere on 29th May 2020.

Frontman Lo commented on ‘Room With A View’: “I imagine ‘Room With A View’ as the opening score to Roberto Rodriguez’s next feature film, if it were set in a post-apocalyptic and degenerative Las Vegas where the only chance of salvation is Barry White’s resurrection.”

PATRÓN is a new project fronted by Lo (aka Patrón) frontman of the band Loading Data. The self-titled debut album was produced by Alain Johannes (Queens of the Stone Age, Eleven, Them Crooked Vultures, Chris Cornell Band) and also happens to be the last album ever recorded in his legendary studio 11AD, in Los Angeles.  

Lo had some well known friends record the album with him: Joey Castillo (Danzig, Queens of the Stone Age, The Bronx), Barrett Martin (Mad Season, Screaming Trees, Tuatara), Nick Oliveri (Kyuss, Queens of the Stone Age, Mondo Generator), Aurélien Barbolosi (Aston Villa) and Monique St Walker (Blackbird Days).

PATRÓN is a melting pot of influences, a new entity, a sort of Frankenstein creature, borrowing as much from stoner rock, 50s rock n roll, the Rat Pack as from 80s pop. It’s sexy, it’s groovy, it’s loud and heavy.  Heady melodies that will stick to your skin like a thirsty alcoholic tick.

PATRÓN are: 
Lo aka Patrón : Lead Vocal / Guitar / Keyboard
Joey Castillo : Drums
Nick Oliveri : Bass
Aurélien Barbolosi : Guitar
Alain Johannes : Bass, Guitar, Keyboard, Vocal
Barrett Martin : Drum
Monique St Walker : Vocal
Aurelia : Vocal

Pre-order Patrón here:

Live plans for 2020 have been postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. More news on this soon.

The Gloom In The Corner Drop New Video/Single Violence And Sign To Collision Course

Melbourne’s The Gloom in The Corner return today with their brand new single Violence, the first of a series of standalone singles. Violence, out Friday April 10th at, is the first track for 2020 for the band and is under their brand new agreement with Collision Course.

The Gloom In The Corner are a concept band exploring the depths of human melancholy through a vessel of their own creation. Their previous instalment in the saga of fictional government organisation known as the Sect, ‘Flesh & Bones’, depicted the band’s dark, heavy and operatic voyage through misery, woe and misanthropy.

Violence serves as a hymn for the demonic entity known as a ‘Gloom’; and entity focused solely on causing barbaric cruelty and destruction to those in it’s path with little remorse. Stepping away from the main story told throughout the band’s career, Violence focuses on giving the listener a view on what the Gloom entity is – on a base level.

Co-produced by The Gloom and the Corner and Jamie Marinos (who also engineered the track) and Mixed & Mastered by Jeff Dunne, Violence represents a Mantra/Chant for The Glooms (A soldier of hell/a member of a cult of violence – characters in an ongoing narrative that has pervaded their music releases to date). The full story to date can be found here.

The cover art for the single (the first of 3 parts) was unveiled this week on “Maundy Thursday”, the celebration of the day that the ‘Last Supper’ was meant to have happened. The cover art depicts the left-hand side of what will become a mural – depicting a ‘Last Supper’ for The Glooms. When the three song cycle in 2020 is complete, a twist ending will be revealed, leaving a cliffhanger for what will follow for the band and the narrative of The Glooms

The Gloom in The Corner’s new single Violence will be revealed to the world on all digital stores and streaming platforms on Friday April 10 through Collision Course. It will be available at

KHÔRA To Release Debut LP Timaeus

KHÔRA To Release Debut LP Timaeus

KHÔRA began as a one-man project by mainman Oleg in 2012-2013, KHÔRA strives to manifest the limits of Extreme Metal and produce both ethereal and ferocious songs.
After the first demo in 2016, Kranos joined on vocals and Lars joined on bass, both helping shape the core line-up.
Featuring an amazing artwork by Sergey Shenderovsky and guest contributions by Vicotnik (DØDHEIMSGARD), Henri Sorvali (FINNTROLL), A. Simonen (AND OCEANS) and many others, “Timaeus” is a carefully-crafted album which consists of black metal to death metal to symphonic and progressive elements.
It was recorded between 2017 and 2019 and follows the theme of the creation of the universe by three omnipotent entities, loosely based on Plato’s dialogue of the same name

As of now they have released three tracks from their forthcoming album due to on April17th which we shall include here.
We also spoke to Oleg about this project and it’s formation.

De Vetus Ad Novum



BM: Can you please tell us about your musical background.

Oleg: I started drumming in 2001, mainly influenced by black metal bands, Emperor, Satyricon and Mayhem were my main influences throughout the first few years of learning the drums, since around 2012 I started to mess around with the guitar, never really learnt it or practiced it in a serious manner, but I knew I had to start someday as I’ve always wanted to actually have my own music rather than play someone else’s bad ideas, haha

BM: You formed Khôra as one man. Was the end product your exact vision or was it an idea that grew over time.

Oleg: A bit of both certainly, took me awhile to make time for it, and to find the right people eventually, the current line-up is made up of some highly talented musicians from Greece, Norway and USA

BM: How challenging was it making this all become a reality?

Oleg: The most challenging thing was to find the right people, everything else was quite easy, if you have a vision and you know half of your shit, you’ll be successful as long as you stick to your goal

BM: Have you any plans to play this album live?

Oleg: Yes that would be good, I’m slowly organizing an Irish live version of Khôra, as mentioned, it’s tough finding the right people, especially in such a small country, so I’m not rushing

BM: The album sounds amazing while figures are of course private, was this album as expensive to create as I imagine or did some of guests do it for the love of the project?

Oleg: Thanks a lot for the kind words! The only real expense was the drum recording as I had to pay a studio to record it, everything else was recorded in our own private studios, including the mixing and mastering which was done by our brilliant vocalist Kranos from Athens.

BM: You’re now signed. Which is an achievement in itself as this is your first album. Was it tough to find a label?

Oleg: It took a couple of months for labels to come back to us with some figures, possibly because I started sending out the stuff in July, and most labels were busy with summer festivals etc… but afterwards it was fairly simple and we’re happy with Soulseller Records, it’s an honor to be on the same label as Gorgoroth and Ancient

BM: What are your hopes for this album?

Oleg: For now just having some more recognition worldwide would be the goal, I’m curious to listen to what people think of it, as I’ve never released any music on that level before

BM: What advice would you give to others that have a vision as you had and bring it to life.

Oleg: If you have the big picture in mind, start planning the small steps towards it, this way if you make a mistake, you can go back and fix it more easily, and mainly – don’t rush, a few months won’t make a difference, once it’s recorded it’s done, so bide your time.

BM: If you could play this album with any line up. Who would it be? Go as mad as you want here…

Oleg: Drumming the songs with Emperor would be good, Trym could play the cowbell

BM: Is there anything you would like to add?

Oleg Thank you for the interest and the questions!

Death can Wait Sign To Burning Metal Records Debut EP ‘Self Portrait’ Out April 25th

Death Can Wait are the first band to sign to Burning Metal Records. They are set to release their debut EP ‘Self Portrait’ on April 25th.

Death Can Wait are a four piece band from South-East Ireland.
They describe themselves as:
“music is a reflection of ourselves.
Contrast – tension – honesty.
A non-specific blend of sounds”.

This is their debut single ‘Left’.

We spoke to them about their formation and future plans.

BM: Can you tell us about the bands formation and how Death can Wait came to be?

DCW: The idea for the band actually begun when David (guitarist) ran into a past member of the band, Dani, on a night out in our local town. Within days, Patryk (drums) was in on the project as he has been closely working on music with David for a couple years prior. Shane (bass) joined the band through a recommendation from another local musician on one of our posts.
Last to join was Brian (vocals), who the band met on a Facebook group for local musicians. The age difference between members of the band is something that stands out only when it is pointed out as it is something that isn’t felt by any member of the band when working together.
Death Can Wait was up and running sometime early November of 2018.

BM: What was your influence and driving force to get involved in music?

Brian: Nine Inch Nails and Nirvana. The destructive element of music in itself.

David: Slipknot is what got me into music really, before that I had only listened casually. When I was around 14 or 15 I saw their Live at Dynamo performance on YouTube and I was just in awe.

Patryk: More than anything I would say it has always been my family. My father was a drummer in a fairly successful reggae band back in Poland and for the first couple years of my life I was brought up watching him play. I can actually remember quite a bit of it even though I was very young, it was always talked about too. The boredom of living in small-town Ireland would probably be a factor also.

Shane: Guitar Hero is what made me pick up a guitar and later I moved to bass. What has kept me interested along the way is the people I’ve met who have shared music with me in some way.

BM: What are your hopes in regards to music?

Brian: To blow my mind with every single song we write. To evolve and improve constantly.

David: I just want to do what I do and constantly try to evolve my sound. I refuse to repeat what has been done before, there needs to be evolution in metal.

Patryk: I just want to prove a point really. I love playing music and I have found myself in this band. I just want to keep on working on it and try to improve with every single gig or release.

Shane: My personal goal in music is to explore myself through it. My goal for this band is that we keep working hard and having fun.

BM: Is their a chief writer in the band?

DCW: There is no such thing as a chief writer in our band. Every song we have ever written has always been a fully co-operative project between all the members of the band. Everyone has their say and their ideas which are respected equally.

BM: Good to hear! If all have their say no possible resentment can grow within the band…
Is their anything you would like to ad?

DCW: We would just like to say thanks to everyone we’ve met along the way of recording this EP as well as all the amazing people we’ve met playing gigs this past year. We have spent a lot of time working on Self Portrait and we are really proud of it. Hopefully, you will enjoy it! Thank you for your time.

Second single Wreck Age.
