Black Tide are currently in the studio with renowned producer GGGarth, and co-producer Josh Wilbur (Atreyu, Avenged Sevenfold, Lamb of God) recording the follow up to their 2008 critically acclaimed debut, Light From Above. The band has just released two studio updates from the recording sessions that can be seen on their Vevo Channel.
The first clip has drummer Steven Spence tracking drums live in the studio and showing off his “stickless” drumming technique.
The second clip features guitarist Austin Diaz getting tattooed in the studio and also has snippets of the new song “Honest Eyes.”
“Honest Eyes” is featured on Black Tide’s upcoming split-single, along with “Bury Me”. The two new tracks will be released 9/21.
Black Tide will be heading out on the road with Bullet For My Valentine, Escape The Fate, and Drive A starting in mid September. Go to Black Tide’s Myspace for the complete tour dates.
TRIGGERSoul has inked a deal with JAMSYNC MUSIC for release of their much anticipated and delayed release RESTORATION. In 2007, TRIGGERSoul recorded their debut at Smash Hit Studios and had the dubious honor of having legendary producer Michael Wagener mix the project. RESTORATION was completed and the band ready to rage a rock n’ roll war. But the untimely death of band mate and lead guitarist Aaron Roe pulled TRIGGERSoul to a screeching halt just after signing their very first record deal. Due to Aaron’s death, the band felt it wasn’t the right time to release the project and shortly thereafter disbanded. After careful consideration, the original remaining members recently sat down and discussed finally releasing RESTORATION. After all, RESTORATION was everything to Aaron and the music is timeless so what better way to honor his memory. This is the last of recorded material by the phenomenal guitarist and songwriter. Influenced by metal bands such as Black Sabbath, Pantera, and Metallica, TRIGGERSoul forges traditional metal with melodic hard rock to create a modern blend of rock that displays great range.
RESTORATION is set for release on December 7th and features the original recordings of the explosive tracks Lost Reality and Self Destruct. Self Destruct is currently playing at this location The track listing is below.

I am now convinced that half the population of Sweden play musical instruments. There have been so many bands coming out of Sweden in the last two years, it certainly seems that way. Sweden’s latest export Glitzy Glow has a sound that mixes class rock and glam metal. The thing that makes Glitzy Glow stand out against their peers are the vocals of lead singer Julia. Julia’s strong voice gives the band a 70’s vibe on some tunes, and yet she can rock out with the best of them.
