Alternative metal vocalist Jen Janet has announced the upcoming release of her new single "Possession," out on all digital platforms July 8th.
Self-described as a ‘multimedia musical project,’ Jen Janet has long-term industry experience as both a solo artist and front woman, as well as in fashion, makeup, photography, and videography. Built upon darker imagery, her new music highlights a noticeable shift in genres - her last solo EP, released in 2017, was a focused pop record. "Possession" finds Jen back in her rock roots and ready to embrace the darkness. Jen Janet is a classically trained vocalist and songwriter. Her songs have been licensed for media placements in mobile apps in both Korea and Turkey.
Jen is the vocalist for Mimesis, a progressive art rock project featuring members of Scale the Summit, the Beast of Nod, and Abiotic. The band’s debut music video, Ctrl Alt Del, was released November 11, 2019 and is influenced by bands such as Polyphia, Periphery, Animals as Leaders, and Plini. With her former band Blind Revision, Jen Janet shared the stage with internationally touring acts: Saving Abel, Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Motionless in White, Puddle of Mudd, Buckcherry, The Amity Affliction, Devildriver, Amorphis, and many more.
In 2018, the band was nominated for best hard rock/metal act of the year in the New England music awards. Blind Revision was also nominated for best rock/metal and hardcore act in 2017 for the Worcester music awards, and in 2018 for Rhode Island’s Motif Magazine music awards. Motif Magazine also nominated Jen Janet for best female vocalist the same year.

German pioneers of European gothic metal, Crematory, showcase another facet of their manifold spectrum with the release of their heart-wrenching cover version of “When The Children Cry”, along with an atmospheric audio-visual.
Crematory is well known for their harsh wave of industrial metal and gothic dimness – but this cover version proves that they are maintaining versatility in the latest stage of their long career. Connie Andreszka’s powerful vocal range combined with soft plugging guitar lines, make this offering a real stunner. Especially in dark times, the popular track originally performed by White Lion regains significance, reveals a light in the night and appeals to the people’s hope.
The black and white music video presents both their passion for music and the melodic side of Crematory’s musical identity. Their latest release Unbroken connects all shades - on the one hand underlining the significance of strength and determination, while on the other, remaining faithful to the darker and existential roots of the scene the band was born in in the 90s. Crematory pursue their conquest towards the dark Parnassus of gothic metal finesse, their spirit unbroken ready to face the challenges of life.
Crematory about “When The Children Cry”:
"To shorten the time without live music caused by the Coronavirus, we recorded this cover version of White Lion's "When The Children Cry", to show that we are still here for our fans and supporters. A beautiful addition to our recently released album Unbroken (release date: march 6th via Napalm Records)!”
