Hungarian instrumental, experimental progressive rock band Ghost Toast released a new music video "Last Man" and it's available here: https://youtu.be/OdYJBONwfHo
"Last Man" is taken from the critically-acclaimed "Out of This World" album which was released June 7th 2017 by Inverse Records.The song was inspired by the novel I Am Legend by Richard Matheson, and two movie adaptations (Last Man on Earth and Omega Man), the speech samples are from these movies as well. We tried to represent the dramatic mood of the story, gradually built up from beginning to end.The music video is directed, shot and edited by Tamás Varga from Brownhandfilm.
"The Last Man character in the video is played by Ghost Toast's drummer (László Papp). The parallel between him and Vincent Price from the Last Man on Earth movie is the main concept of the video.The video was shot in extreme hot weather and László cut himself during it, so we almost literally gave blood, sweat and tears to make this music video" says the guitarist Rózsavölgyi Bence.
The band is currently writing new material for their fourth full-length album. The release date is announced later in 2018..

Ghost Toast is an instrumental, experimental progressive rock band from Debrecen, Hungary, formed in 2008. They love heavy, trippy music and film scores as well, so they use these elements to create their own music.
With their 3rd album, the band used elements of heavy prog rock, world music, folk, and electronic music. The songs on are connected by a loose concept - a connection between fantasy and some mythological themes (influenced by the Dark Tower saga by Stephen King, Dune by Frank Herbert, I am legend by Richard Matheson, Greek mythology, etc.).
The band names following artists as their influencers Tool, Faith No More, Mastodon, Crippled Black Phoenix, Ulver, Special Providence, Oceansize, Jaga Jazzist, Shpongle, Orbital, Ott, Plaid, Future Sound Of London, various film score composers (like Ennio Morricone, Jeremy Soule). So this tells that it is quite impossible to describe their music, you'll need to experience it by yourself!
Purson, the psychedelic rock act led by vocalist, guitarist & prime creative force Rosalie Cunningham, have taken a bold step into the world of fashion by joining forces with Mr Fish - the iconic British fashion brand whose clothes were worn by David Bowie, The Rolling Stones & Jimi Hendrix.
Starting in 1966, Michael Fish forged his reputation by crafting clothes for celebrities, musical and otherwise, including Muhammad Ali, Princess Margaret & Pablo Picasso (!); the business closed in 1974 after a fire consumed the premises, but now the legendary Mr Fish name is back, and Purson are right at the heart of the re-launch – their retro influences and colourful persona, as displayed on latest studio album ‘Desire’s Magic Theatre’, making them the made-in-heaven muse for the latest Mr Fish creations.
Indeed, both Cunningham and keyboard player Samuel Robinson have designed their own outfits – including cat-suits plus a pure silk man-dress – in close consultation with British design specialist David Mason, who has revived the Mr Fish name out of 34 Montagu Square, London: a blue-plaque location, dubbed ‘the secret Abbey Road’, that was once home to Jimi Hendrix, as well as Ringo Starr, Paul McCartney (who wrote ‘Eleanor Rigby’ there), John Lennon & Yoko Ono.
Meanwhile, July 22ndwill see the release of a new version of the ‘Desire’s Magic Theatre’ album, Purson’s debut outing for Spinefarm Records. Having originally been issued on black vinyl, the LP – drawing inspiration from the rock operas of the late sixties & early seventies – will now be available on ‘Naked Blue’ vinyl for a limited period.
Having toured the US with Ghost & The Sword, played the UK’s prestigious Download festival and become the proud recipient of the ‘Vanguard Award’ at the Progressive Music Awards (2015), Purson is quickly establishing itself as a growing force on the international music scene. Just recently, the band received an ‘Album Of 2016’ nomination from Prog magazine, whilst broader media awareness continues to be strong, with support from 6 Music right across the board.
The following UK festivals are confirmed for July & August, with a headline tour being lined up for the autumn, complete with special London show (details to come)…
July 23rd – Ramblin’ Man Fair, Maidstone
August 7th – Cambridge Rock Festival
In support of these shows, Purson will release a new video for ‘Electric Landlady’, a track from ‘Desire’s Magic Theatre’ that, according to Cunningham, is “essentially about Mother Earth, of feeling at home in the world, safe and loved, with some tongue-in-cheek lyrics”.

Latvia’s Tesa operate with evident conviction, and their flourishing, distinct sound is the epitome of how grand and graceful guitar-driven music can be. Since 2005, the trio of Karlis Tone, Davis Burmeisters and Janis Burmeisters have created a mature, rapturous vision of heavy music without the constraints of genre, reverting to their trusted intuition to create the glorious movements that can challenge any of the founding figures of long-form rock with depth.
"Ghost" their latest LP formed of five segments for each letter, will see physical release (in CD and 2xLP format) through My Proud Mountain on 5th August, and it is a phenomenal demonstration of the band’s gripping adaptive approach. With the assistance of James Plotkin’s mastering (he who has worked with Sunn O))), Electric Wizard, Earth, Michael Gira, Tim Hecker and many more), "Ghost" sounds loud and important played at any volume, and the palpable passages of suspense and subsequent devastating releases give the record a momentum that endures all 40 minutes.
Most spectacular is the apparent ease in which all three members, working together so closely, supply heaving riffs, emotionally exhausting melodies and soundscapes, and heroic lively tempo, creating a sound that cannot be named but can be intensely felt. This capacity of theirs to stun has won them the attention of the similarly singular Neurosis, with whom they toured Europe with in 2013 and will tour again with in August (dates below), and "Ghost" should surely elevate them to a larger plane of exposure that their music can expand in to.
“At some point, when you've kind of earned some recognition and there's a general idea in people's mind, what you do, and what to expect form you as a band, it's really easy to just stay in a comfort zone, musically. But I think that we actually tried to step outside a bit form that, and at some level, try to do something different than people expect from you. Maybe it's more brutal at some parts, more direct and harsh. We try to escape the so-called post-rock thing.” - Janis Burmeisters on "Ghost"
