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.

We started writing our material in February 2017 and recorded our music during August and December 2017. Finally we released our record "I wander alone" on April 9th 2018 and it is available as a digipak from our shop. The band currently consists of 2 musicians. Marina plays all keys and synths. Alex plays guitars and the bass.
Set to unleash their new EP "The War Inside" on May 10th, Orlando's Meka Nism, a metal tour de force has teamed up with PureGrainAudio.com for the premiere of their next single "Trailblazer".
Listen to one of metal's next titan's triumph with this powerful anti-suicide track about keeping positive and persevering when times feel they have no escape.
"Trailblazer" can be heard at http://puregrainaudio.com/audio/floridian-metal-quintet-meka-nism-stream-hot-new-trailblazer-single-exclusive-premiere
The band adds:
"The meaning behind 'The War Inside' has a lot to do with the duality of things, the mental wars we all have with ourselves, good vs. bad, all of the stuff going on in the world today, and the everyday battles that we all go through. Whether its depression, anxiety, suicide, family, or outside pressure, everyone deals with some sort of War Inside, and we are here to try and help you through it."
"The War Inside" follows Meka Nism's three previous releases "Live From The Machine Shop" (Live CD) (2016), "The Shift" (EP) (2015), "The Dance At The End of The World" (EP) (2013).
Inspired by Metallica, Joan Jett, Iron Maiden, Slayer, Ghost, Meka Nism’s sound is powerful, metallic, aggressive, melodic, and in your face. They are a band that fires on all cylinders and with the most charismatic front-woman "Meka", they have supported legends like Mastodon, Gojira, The Offspring, Limp Bizkit, Otep and In Flames, which now continues as the band has been confirmed to be local Orlando support for Korn's Jonathan Davis' tour date on May 14th at Plaza Live, details can be found here.
Vocalist Meka comments:
"We are very excited to have this opportunity to play with Jonathan Davis. I know I speak for everyone in Meka Nism, that we are greatly inspired by his music as a solo artist and with Korn. He is a brilliant artist, consistently creating truly great music with his own unique sound. This will be special experience to share with our home-town tribe in Orlando."

Mike Shinoda (Linkin Park) to release debut album 'Post Traumatic' June 15th via Warner Bros Records
Linkin Park co-lead singer Mike Shinoda announced today that he will release a full-length solo album, Post Traumatic, due out June 15 on Warner Bros. Records. Along with the album announcement, Shinoda released two new tracks – “Crossing A Line” and “Nothing Makes Sense Anymore,” as well as a video for “Crossing A Line.” The 16-track album is available to pre-order today, and will include the two aforementioned new tracks alongside the three tracks from the Post Traumatic EP, released earlier this year to critical acclaim. Additionally, Shinoda will perform a handful of solo shows this summer, including the Identity LA in Los Angeles on May 12, Reading and Leeds Festival and the Summer Sonic Festival in Japan in August. Stay tuned for additional dates to be announced.

LISTEN/SHARE “Crossing A Line” / “Nothing Makes Sense Anymore”
In the months since the passing of Linkin Park vocalist Chester Bennington, Shinoda has immersed himself in art as a way of processing his grief. With no agenda, Shinoda hunkered down alone in his Los Angeles home and began writing, recording, and painting. In January, he released the Post Traumatic EP consisting of three deeply personal songs – each one a powerful, stream-of-consciousness expression of unvarnished grief – accompanied by home-made visuals that Shinoda filmed, painted and edited himself. The response was overwhelming positive, with New York Times stating “The tracks are reverberant electronic dirges; the rhymes, heading into sung choruses, testify to bewilderment, mourning, resentment, self-pity and questions about what to do.”
Following the EP release, Shinoda continued to create, and the result is the upcoming Post Traumatic, a transparent and intensely personal album that, despite its title, isn’t entirely about grief, though it does start there. “It’s a journey out of grief and darkness, not into grief and darkness,” Shinoda says. Ultimately, Post Traumatic is an album about healing. The songs, though specific about Shinoda’s experience with loss, manage to be universally relatable, thanks to their honesty and heart. “If people have been through something similar, I hope they feel less alone,” he says. “If they haven’t been through this, I hope they feel grateful.”
Mike Shinoda is a songwriter, performer, record producer, film composer and visual artist. He is best known as co-lead vocalist for multi-platinum Grammy-Award winning rock band, Linkin Park, which has sold over 55 million albums worldwide and commanded a massive fan following, holding the title as the most-liked band on Facebook and amassing over 5.5 billion YouTube views. Shinoda is a founding member of the group, which achieved the best-selling debut of this century with their Diamond-certified album, Hybrid Theory, selling over 10 million copies in the US alone. Collectively, they sold out stadiums around the globe and earned a multitude of accolades including 2 Grammy Awards, 5 American Music Awards, 4 MTV VMA Awards, 10 MTV Europe Music Awards, 3 World Music Awards, and most recently, “Rock Album of the Year” at the 2018 iHeartRadio Music Awards for their seventh studio album, One More Light. In 2005, Shinoda launched his first solo project, Fort Minor, releasing The Rising Tied to critical acclaim, with the single “Where’d You Go,” which reached number 4 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and accumulated nearly 10 million YouTube views to date.
