Amoral, the Finnish ambassadors of classic rock of the 21st century, have released another new song from their upcoming 5th album “Beneath”. Where the first single “Same Difference” leaned towards hard rock, the new song, (Won’t Go) Home, with it’s riff-oriented structure and growling vocals, represents the heavier side of the new album.
“‘(Won’t Go) Home’ is a heavy and technical track through and through”, singer Ari Koivunen says. “Masi’s (Hukari, guitar) Indian-flavored solo is also one of my favourites. Vocal-wise this song was the hardest to pull off, as my voice was pretty blown after two weeks of singing in the studio. I ended up recording the vocals by myself during the small hours, and I’m very happy with the results.”
“(Won’t Go) Home” can be listened to at Imperiumi.net for the next week, between the 3rd and 10th of August. “Beneath” will be released in late October.

If you want to hear a band with loads of potential, you have to check Cherri Bomb from Los Angeles. This kick-ass quartet of talented and good looking women just released a brand new three song EP, “Stark”. Judging from the songs I have listened to, the future is going to be very bright for this band. You don’t have to take my word for it, you can download the “Stark” EP for FREE at the Cherri Bomb website. Cherri Bomb hasn’t only caught my attention.
