DeFox Records and Heart Of Steel Records are really proud to announce the second instrumental solo album of guitar wizard Ricky De Camargo.

The album titled “Maverick” contains seven instrumental songs featuring guitar riffs, vibrant solos and magnificent keyboards sound. 

Guitarist Ricky De Camargo lives in Brazil and he has played in some rock and metal bands from his country, he love Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, Bumblefoot and all rock guitar masters! 

The release will be published in September 25th - 2020.

The digital album available on every worldwide webstores, iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, Deezer, Google Play, Tidal, Shazam...YouTube Music also.

This will be Ricky's second Instrumental Solo Album. In this record, Ricky bring us the same concept of rock, prog rock and many guitar lines. Everything very well mixed with orchestral arrangements. The album has 7 Instrumental Tracks. All writen and arranged by Ricky in his studio. The record process took around 3 months from start to finish. 

Ricky played, programed and recorded all the guitars, bass, drums, keyboards, synths solos and orchestral arrangements. A truly one man band project. In this album, Ricky put all the best songs that came up during the pre-production. Making a perfect balanced record.


The opening track "Maverick" it's a orchestral/prog-metal tune that it's divided in two parts. The first one it's more metal and direct. The second half give us the taste of prog-metal, with odd time signatures, dark riffs that switchs during all the second part, meanwhile synths solos runs during the next two minutes.

The next track "Lifestream" it's a ballad in Re minor. It's a track about overcome depression and keep going.

The third track "Sunrise in your Eyes" was recorded in honor of the Asians. People that Ricky has the greatest respect and admiration.

"Full Throttle, the fourth track, is a more direct rock song on the album. It is about doing the best you can in what you do in this life.

"The Angel's Choir", it's the fifth track from album. It's a more Gospel tune, with several choirs arrangements and several time signatures changes. 11/8, 7/8 and 8/8 to be more precisely. Ricky also wrote the Synth Solo that we have in this one.

The sixth track from "Maverick" it's "Twilight". A track that Ricky wrote many years ago.

According to ricky, he always tried to improve his guitar technique in front of his house watching the sunset.

That was the inspiration for the track.

The last song on the album is "Shadows Will Fade Someday". A complete song from the orchestra with many changes of tones.

To complete the album, Ricky wanted to have a song that would challenge him technically and theoretically, in terms of composition.

Then, after days and days of composing, he finally achieved a harmony that fulfilled the requirements he intended for this song.


Ricky de Camargo: Guitars, Bass, Drums, Piano, Keyboards, Orchestral and MIDI arrangements.

Mixed and Mastered at Guazzelli's Studios.

Nordicwinter present third album

Upon Canada's frozen winds; Nordicwinter was spawned in August 2006 by a single entity known as evillair

Laden with haunting melodies and cryptic vocals, Nordicwinter sets out to drive back into the wombs from whence they came from, those false souls who today haunt the black metals scene like paint by numbers specters. There, within their bloody sepulchers, they will die; screaming silent screams that none will deign to hear.

The band's third album "Desolation" is now available in Limited edition Digipak and digital download on their bandcamp page

Rotting Out releasing their new single

American hardcore punk band, Rotting Out, are releasing their new single “Stones” today. The single comes off of the band’s forthcoming full-length album, "Ronin", which will be released on April 10, 2020 via Pure Noise Records. “Stones” follows the release of their singles, “Reaper” and “Unforgiven”.


“‘Stones’ is a very aggressive and angry song. I started going to shows at a very young age, and in the place where I’m from there’s a very ghetto and violent atmosphere. In the projects of Los Angeles, there’s a lot of gang activity, drug use, prostitution, violence, domestic abuse, and child abuse. This is what I was surrounded with. When I got into hardcore, it was cool because it didn’t involve all of that or glorify it” shares lead vocalist Walter Delgado.

“Then, there was a point where I started to notice that certain bands or certain people in the hardcore scene adopted the style of being from the ghetto. They started glorifying the grim and the dirt - just negative things that shouldn’t be glorified to begin with from ghettos when these people were not from there. […] This isn’t pretty and it’s not meant to be put on a pedestal. It’s just a matter of the situation, and people are born into this situation unwillingly. It’s a big fuck you to everyone who tried to adopt this ‘cool swag ghetto child’ vibe when they themselves are from suburbia”.

On the forthcoming album, Delgado continues: "It’s been 7 years since our last LP. A lot has happened since: hard lessons, periods of isolation, weight of guilt, diagnosis, crippling realization, absolute hopelessness and also absolute peace and calmness. The purpose for the image of the record is that there was a lot that was left unspoken and I danced around the darker moments and some were just buried completely. I decided to reopen things that haven’t been open in almost 25 years and look it straight in the face. That old dusty mirror that shows me more than I’d like to see or remember. I’ve never been more proud of writing this record and nothing was left behind on my end. Some of these took more out of me than I’d like to admit. Nonetheless, I knew it was time to put it all out there”.
Raised on the sounds of local LA heroes Suicidal Tendencies and Pennywise, yet fully indebted to the thriving Southern California hardcore scene, Rotting Out have continually created some of the most energetic and captivating punk/hardcore being played today. Their music expresses a certain LA grit that is so rarely captured by many hardcore bands.

After disbanding from their original band, Dogpile, the band formed in 2007. Since then, they have released two full-length records and two EPs. With vocalist Walter Delgado’s arrest in Ohio and 18-month sentence for transporting an estimated 700 pounds of marijuana, the band was forced to take a break. After a three-year hiatus, the band reemerged into the scene at the iconic Sound and Fury Festival and This is Hardcore Fest in 2018. Now, in 2020, the band is back and ready to reclaim their place in the industry.

Exlibris share new video, detail release plans

Exlibris share new video, detail release plans

Polish/Finnish power/prog metal outfit Exlibris released their third song from the upcoming album “Shadowrise”.

“All I Never Knew... is again one of those songs on the album that's something different than what I've recorded before with Exlibris. The mood in the verses is similiar to Rule #1 (in my opinion at least) and then there's this killer chorus. You simply can't hate it.” - says lead singer Riku Turunen, who also made the lyric video for the song.
“The idea of the video kind of just came out from nowhere. I had already done three or four videos for the album and wanted to do something different than just basic motion graphics. I looked at my camera and tripod and some paper on the kitchen table and figured out to "draw" the video by hand. I was almost happy with it until I had another idea to put the first filmed part inside another one, because.. well.. two videos is more than one. And as you all know, more is more.” - he adds.

The band revealed that they had prepared a video for each of the six songs on the album and will be releasing them one by one every two weeks. The release of sixth and final song on April 17th will coincide with the physical release on CD.

“Shadowrise” is now available for preorder via their website:

Commando announce new release

Commando announce new release

COMMANDO is a Portuguese project formed in 2017 by Rui Vieira (Machinergy, Baktheria and Miss Cadaver) and José Alexandre Graça (Extrema Mutilação Auditiva and M.A.D.). Heavily influenced by the crossover/punk/thrash/hardcore spirit, which ‘contaminated’ them in the early 1990s, they decided, in a fate of fate, and a quarter of a century later (25 years without contact), to found a project and to record an album.

Entitled "Love Songs #1... (Total Destruction, Mass Executions)", the album reflects the spirit, on the one hand, serious and committed to achieving a good end result (at all levels) and, on the other, a relaxed and deconstructive facet of these same influences, in a kind of tribute and, at the same time, respect for those who influenced them, musically and beyond, throughout their lives.

"Love Songs #1... (Total Destruction, Mass Executions)" is set to be released in the beginning of April through Firecum Records.

PUP Share Video for Morbid Stuff

PUP Share Video For "Morbid Stuff"
Shot Live Across Two Sold Out London Shows Handheld Footage Recorded By 19 Fans

Following the end of the band’s recent world tour, a run that had them on the road for 9 months, PUP today share the video for "Morbid Stuff", recorded live and shot on cheap handheld cameras handed out to 19 gig-goers the band personally connected with in advance of their recent sold out London dates. As premiered yesterday on the fans’ social media accounts, the clip showcases the sweat-stained euphoria of the band’s shows and once again captures the unique bond between PUP and the people that come to their gigs, screaming every word.

Taken from the critically-acclaimed album of the same name, today’s release isn’t the first time they’ve collaborated on visuals with fans, for the ‘Free At Last’ video, which served as a love letter to their fans, the band called on people to record their own versions of a song not-yet-released, supplying only chords and lyrics to hilarious and impressive results.

Redefining the relationship between artist and fans, they’ve often let fans feel as much a part of PUP as the four people onstage, creating zines that connect on a more intimate level than social media, used in the past to leak information of upcoming releases  like the single "Kids" through fans all pushed via their fan-facing Little Dipper label imprint.
With the news that PUP will return to this side of the Atlantic next year for a summer of festival appearances, it was recently announced that the band, following 9 months touring, had offset the entire run through To raise the funds necessary, vocalist Stefan Babcock set to create 50 personalized one-of-a-kind tattoos for specific fans, all of which he’d connected with directly, again blurring the line between the band and its fans.

2020 EU festival dates:

June 19th | Hradec Kralove, CZ @ Rock For People
June 20th | Neuhausen ob Eck, DE @ Southside
June 26th | Ysselsteyn, NL @ Jera on Air

About "Morbid Stuff":

Formed in Toronto five years ago, PUP, comprised of Stefan Babcock, Nestor Chumak, Zack Mykula, and Steve Sladkowski, quickly became favourites of the punk scene with their first two, critically-beloved albums, winning accolades everywhere from the New York Times to Pitchfork, from NPR and Rolling Stone, and more. Now, with "Morbid Stuff", PUP have grown up and doubled down on everything that made you love their first two records. It’s gang’s-all-here vocals, guitarmonies, and lyrics about death. Lots of them.

Fitting to their ethos, their new album takes the dichotomy of fun and emotional wreckage in their songs and teeters between gleeful chaos and bleak oblivion while wielding some of the best choruses the band has ever written. "Morbid Stuff" is also a pretty intense foray into singer Stefan Babcock’s fight with depression, and shows, in perfect PUP fashion, how taking responsibility of his own depression lead him to….laughter. Admitting his depression allowed Babcock to laugh in its face, and the result is that marriage of darkness and joy that made PUP who they are, but in a brand new way.

Indeed, despite its dark subject matter, at times "Morbid Stuff" is funny as hell, even in the music. It’s the most insightful, sweetest, funniest, sickest, angriest, saddest and most inescapably desperate collection of songs they’ve recorded to date. If their self-titled record was the fuse and The Dream Is Over was the bomb going off, "Morbid Stuff" is your family sifting through the rubble, only to find you giggling while you bleed to death.

Spanish Love Songs Release Video

Spanish Love Songs Release Video For "Beachfront Property"
New Album "Brave Faces Everyone" Out February 7th

Five-piece punk band Spanish Love Songs are sharing their new single and music video “Beachfront Property".

“Beachfront Property” is the band’s final single off of their forthcoming album, "Brave Faces Everyone", which will be released tomorrow, February 7, 2020 via Pure Noise Records. 

Lead vocalist and songwriter, Dylan Slocum shares: "This is a song about the apathy and anxiety that I see in myself and my friends, especially concerning the chaos that seems to be coming our way. On any given day our anxiety feels hyperbolic, or is the punchline to a joke, or keeps us up all night, but we don’t really do anything about it because it feels insurmountable and inescapable. It’s not meant to preachy - life is difficult. But we have to try to call ourselves on our shit if we ever hope to change anything".

On a more literal level, the track focuses on relevant topics such as climate change, student loan debt, and gun violence – some of the album’s recurring themes - because Slocum obsesses over these problems. He says: "The answers seem so obvious, yet nothing ever really changes. It’s tiring”.

Slocum continues to share about the record: "This album is us honing in on what we think makes our band resonate with people - namely, the feeling that you’re not alone. These are songs about looking outward and finding that, for all our differences, most of us are just trying to get by as the world is going to hell around us. We don’t have any grand ambitions beyond that — we just want people to feel acknowledged. There’s comfort in knowing we’re on the same sinking ship. We want the album to be a knowing nod and a way to make the world a slightly more bearable, even if it’s just for 40 minutes".

The ten-track album, produced by guitarist Kyle McAulay at Howard Benson’s West Valley Recording, is steeped in the same detail-rich storytelling of Bruce Springsteen, The Menzingers and Manchester Orchestra. These songs represent the situations Slocum, McAulay, and their bandmates bassist Trevor Dietrich, drummer Ruben Duarte and keyboardist Meredith Van Woert experienced during 30-some weeks of rigorous touring during the album cycle of their previous record, Schmaltz.

In support of "Brave Faces Everyone", the band is currently on a three-week EU tour supporting The Menzingers. Check the dates below:

3rd February – Amsterdam, Netherlands @ Melkweg
4th February – Antwerpen, Belgium @ Zappa

“When you’re young, you just want to be heard” opines Slocum. The singer and guitarist of LA-based punk quintet, Spanish Love Songs, is referencing his band, but he could just as easily be talking about himself. Since forming in 2014, Spanish Love Songs certainly have been heard, from legions of underground audiences at The Fest and South By Southwest to outlets like NPR, who hailed the group’s 2018 album, Schmaltz, as a “wellspring of big ideas, bigger riffs and the biggest possible feelings about love, war, fear and existential crisis”.

Over the past six years, Spanish Love Songs have released two albums and an EP. With "Brave Faces Everyone", the songs are character stories set in small-town America and anxious urban jungles alike, unfurling heartbreaking tales of addiction, depression, debt and death juxtaposed alongside looming societal bogeys like mass shootings, the opioid epidemic and climate change. They’re all at once personal vignettes and universal truths of life in the 2010s, the lines blurred between Slocum’s own experiences and those of his friends and acquaintances. It seeks to find balance between realism and optimism.

“If you sing something loud enough and long enough” Slocum muses “hopefully people are able to find some peace in that”. "Brave Faces Everyone" experiments with more traditional song structures and fewer forwardly caustic moments this time around haven’t dulled the band’s sound. If anything, they’ve accentuated the most important parts of it. When everything is loud and urgent, nothing is. But when Slocum’s voice swells to a roar on this new record, the undeniable power grabs you by the collar and forces you to pay attention - and that’s the difference between simply being heard and truly being understood.

"Brave Faces Everyone" will be released on February 7, 2020.

Canadian rocker Tylor Dory Trio share new single

Edmonton Prog TYLOR DORY TRIO Shares 'Dying Light' Off Upcoming Album "Unsought Salvation" Out Dec 21st

Tylor Dory Trio from Edmonton, Canada are putting out a new record and it’s exactly the warm proggy hug you need this winter. “Unsought Salvation” is full to the brim with warm riffs and spicy drumming, topped with delectable vocals that will comfort you as the nights grow longer.

TDT explains the connection between the new album and their 2015 debut EP “Carried Away”:

“The album should serve as a valid continuation from ‘Carried Away’ alongside spiritual ties to the first EP. ‘Carried Away’ was tonally quite dark, we feel that ‘Unsought Salvation’ is a more balanced presentation featuring some upbeat tracks alongside darker and heavier tracks that you may have come to expect from listening to ‘Carried Away’.”

For their second single, the band have teamed up with GhostCultMag to premiere the proggy acoustic guitar-driven track 'Dying Light'. Tylor Dory explains:

"One of the album's primarily acoustic tracks, our first EP and the Carried Away EP both featured an acoustic song and it was very important to us to carry that forward with 'Unsought Salvation'. The song is played in an unconventional tuning (DABGAD) that I came up with while trying to gain access to certain chord voicing that wouldn’t have been available otherwise. Like many of our songs 'Dying Light' is a journey through many feels and tonalities, starting quite soft and gradually building up to an erupting guitar solo." 

Due out December 21, 2019, “Unsought Salvation” has something for everyone and will especially be enjoyed by fans of Devin Townsend, Opeth, and Porcupine Tree

Track Listing:
1. The Righteous and the Rest (6:16)
2. Comatose (5:15)
3. The Fallen Man (5:45)
4. Dying Light (5:08)
5. The Spaces In Between (5:06)
6. East of Eden (5:49)
7. Glass Menagerie (5:28)
8. Marionettes (of Distant Masters) (4:37)
9. Into The Maelstrom (4:40)
10. Cenotaph (13:42)
Album Length: 1:01:52

For more info:


Tylor Dory Trio was conceived in late 2012 by guitarist/vocalist Tylor Dory and drummer Jonathan Webster. Wanting to step aside from playing in extreme metal bands, Dory and Webster decided to form the duo to explore the music close to their hearts - proggy weird stuff. The trio was completed in late 2013 after the addition of their bassist Slava Fedossenko.

Bringing together influences like Opeth, Alice In Chains, and Rush; TDT is characterized by proficient musicianship, tight songwriting, and powerful hooks. It’s progressive metal that isn’t pretentious. TDT loves pushing the boundaries of what a power trio can accomplish, but above all else, it’s about the songs.

Musically, they take their fans on a journey through light and dark tonalities, crushing heaviness to ethereal cleanliness, through peaks and valleys that end up coming full circle.

Their latest full length “Unsought Salvation” was recorded with the prolific Christer-Andre Cederberg at his studio in Kristiansand, Norway in February 2017, to be released December 20, 2019, to follow their 2015 EP "Carried Away"
