Logic Il Logic Records & Burning Minds Music Group are glad to announce that "Dreamy Reflections", official debut album of Italian alternative rock/metal band Orphan Skin Diseases, is set for release on July 13, 2018. Orphan Skin Diseases were formed in 2015 by drummer maestro Massimiliano Becagli, known in the Italian scene as the drummer for respected heavy metallers No Remorse. The Orphan Skin Diseases line-up was completed by the addition of skilled musicians from the Italian rock/metal scene: Gabriele Di Caro (ex Sabotage, ex Outlaw - Vocals), Juri Costantino (ex Creation - Bass) & David Bongianni (ex Virya, Little CB - Guitar). The band’s style was built by mixing the influences from each musician in order to reach a refined and personal sound. Progressive rock music, heavy metal influences, funky hints and alternative elements are perfectly mixed and balanced to create a powerful-but-catchy experience.
Guitarist & founding member David Bongianni, talking about the album, says:-
"14 new songs, 14 actual and personal stories for the whole band. 14 tracks reunited in an album with a clear title, "Dreamy Reflections", which represents what we feel inside and what we try to show throughout the album. We like to define ourselves a four-pieces band plus one member, this to remark that Dimitri Bongianni is now officially part of the band due to his precious support both in providing vocals parts and arranging the songs of the album. Last but not least, we'd like to thank our label, Logic Il Logic Records, for the precious help in making this album possible".
Music is not the only distinctive side of Orphan Skin Diseases. Their artistic approach shows comprehensive research on the lyrical side, with songs facing hard and challenging themes. The depletion of earth’s resources and the dominance of financial lobbies are just a couple of examples, along with a structured analysis of human emotions and personal life experiences. The name of the band is taken from an international database granted to doctors around the world, who can read and insert data about unusual and unknown skin diseases; essentially another way to show a strong and helpful approach toward innocent and defenceless human beings.

All girl Italian riot metal group Charlotte In Cage are putting a voice to their ideas with their new album Times Of Anger. Citing influences such as Kittie, Hole, Pussy Riot, Moonspell and Marilyn Manson, it’s clear these girls have something to say and aren’t about to hold back.
The album has varied and unique sounds that perfectly express the differences in the musical background of the band members. All this was important to Charlotte In Cage, as they didn’t want to set limits in their creation. Therefore, the primary function of their work is that of “artistic expression without limits in itself”.
One of the main concepts of the album is the social denouncing of oppression and injustice, particularly involving women, and found in different environments and social structures. This is the lens through which we tend to distort reality. Songs like Times Of Anger or I Hate Myself were specifically designed to highlight this concept and the related message.
Mixed and mastered at Hombre Lobo Studio.

Italian Thrashers Kinetik unveil the meanings behind the two songs 'Fallout' and 'Eymerich'; taken from new album
"Critical Fallout", the latest album from Italian thrasher metallers Kinetik, was released last week by Italian label Punishment 18 Records. The effort in studio was mastered at “Tower Studio” by talented Brett Caldas-Lima (Ayreon, To-Mera, Forest Stream, Akphaezya). About the tracks, ‘Fallout’ is inspired by the homonymous video game saga; ‘Eymerich’ is dedicated to the Italian writer Valerio Evangelisti and his 'Eymerich' saga.
Heavy Generation is a heavy metal band formed in 2015 by Marco Marchioni (bass) and Marco Stefani (drums). In 2016, after several line up changes, Fabio Cavestro (guitars) and Ivan Giannini (voice) joined the band. With them, Heavy Generation reached a balance that gave the band the cool heavy sound they were looking for.
Heavy Generation want to spread their own personal message through their songs. They deal with several themes: mythology, honour, war and dystopia, the deep connection between spirit and nature, the denial of a corrupted society and the balance between the passion of heart and the power of mind. To help achieve this vision, the band members perform on stage as four road warriors, with costumes and scenography freely inspired to a post apocalyptic scenario.
In 2017, the recording sessions took place for the bands debut album The Spirit Lives On and toward the end of the year, the video Fire, Steel, Metal was filmed, directed and edited by Violex Video. It’s taken from the upcoming album and tells a story of how to defeat your own demons and change your destiny by the power of the will …and, of course, through heavy metal. The Spirit Lives On is set to be released via Sliptrick Records later in the year.
The Spirit Lives On | Released TBA, 2018 on Sliptrick Records
Heavy Generation are:
Ivan Giannini – Vocals
Fabio Cavestro – Guitars
Marco Marchioni – Bass
Marco Stefani – Drums

Italy's folk metal KormaK signs a worldwide deal with Rockshots Records!
Hailing from the south of Italy, newcomer folk metallers KormaK have just signed a record deal with Rockshots Records for the release of their debut album "Faerenus" in June!
The album inspects on the concept of madness and what this is caused by. Indeed "Faerenus" is the ethereal place where the hidden fears come to life by creating times, places and divinities, and the mind self-evolves until all the memories are mutated into obsessive nightmares with no escape."Faerenus" is a no-place covered of secret symbols as well as obscure meanings, ending with the lullaby "Eterea El" that commits you to leave that place no more. KormaK was born in October 2015 from an idea of the singer Zaira De Candia with the original line-up. The band takes its name from "The Kormak Saga", a fantasy literary work loved by all the band members.
The different influences of the musicians led the project to range in different genres, keeping the folk and Celtic metal as main topic. In March 2018 they realized their first single "The Goddess’ Song", available at the following link: https://youtu.be/bcZI-QYDPW0
The debut album "Faerenus" is set to be released on June 29, 2018 via Rockshots Records, and it's already available for pre-order here: http://bit.ly/Faerenus_PREORDER
If you are into Ensiferum, Heidevolk, Amon Amarth, Folkearth, you cannot miss the ultimate folk metal opera "Faerenus"!
The Symphonic / Power Metal band Kantica are proud to present the first official video clip for the song "And Then There Was Pain", taken from the album Reborn in Aesthetics (released by Revalve records).
MaterDea is one of the most known and recognizable metal bands in Italy coming out of the pagan and Celtic scene. It has been 2 years since their last release, a full length entitled “The Goddess’ Chants” and they are ready to indulge their listeners in a new fascinating and enthralling journey with “Pyaneta”.
Following the direction started with “A Rose for Egeria”, this new record is a further step forward into the melding of metal and Celtic music, in the personal style that MaterDea’s fans will acknowledge and love once more. It is a powerful symphony where all the instruments and the voices join the sounds of nature, painting new grandiose landscapes enriched by colours and sophisticated arrangements. The melodies reveal themselves along with the sumptuous guitar riffs, a powerful rhythmic session and the twist of strings and orchestration, allowing the listener to be carried away in a dimension full of energy, beauty and hope by these magical tales.
The band describes “Pyaneta”:-
“In this new album the stories are inspired by the deep interconnection that exists between every living thing and the largest sentient organism that hosts us, our planet Earth. It is an exhortation to the awareness of the environmental danger, a cry of hope for its future and a message of love for life in its gorgeous wholeness.”
MaterDea goes to great lengths to ensure that their listeners can be thrust away from reality and thrown into a fantastical world full of enchantment and magic and “Pyaneta”, their fifth album promises to do just that. Citing influences such as Genesis, Jethro Tull and Led Zeppelin, the band creates a gentle yet powerful type of metal with various classical overtones. With a desire to create powerful, intense, emotional music that features pantheistic themes the 7 classically trained Italian musicians paint a rich fantasy world for their listeners. To date they have released four full lengths, “Below the Mists, Above the Brambles” (2009), “Satyricon” (2011), “A Rose for Egeria” (2014) and “The Goddess’ Chants” (2016).
“Pyaneta” is set to be released via Rockshots Records in Europe on June 8 and in North America on July 6. There is currently a crowdfund set up for fans who wish to support the album by pre ordering or donating.
