It`s been 7 years – KAREN ZOID releases new English album: DROWN OUT THE NOISE. Release date: April 2015

No #1 downloaded album on SA iTunes within first day of release!

SA’s Queen of rock is strongest when she just tells it as it is. Karen Zoid is known for her clever and penetrating lyrics; her distinctive voice and ability to write brave and delicately rendered songs.

Thematically the new album comments on the “destructive seduction” of the information overload that we have to deal with in the modern world. Zoid comments: “Times are hard. But that doesn’t mean that we must withdraw. We need to find our way back to ourselves. We must be able to be quiet before knowing what to say and what to do.  And from there go wholeheartedly for what we want in life.” Continue reading It`s been 7 years – KAREN ZOID releases new English album: DROWN OUT THE NOISE.

Witchfest Indiegogo Campaign – The show must go on

As you may or may not have heard Witchfest 2015 and Witchdoctor productions have had countless trouble trying to bring the biggest metal event Africa has ever seen. They’ve had 3 venues cancel on them and all the sponsor pull out due to pressure from certain groups of the public. The guys have started an indiegogo campaign to try and recover some of the money that they personally had to invest after all teh  in the festival to make it happen and to make sure that Witchfest becomes an annual event. This campaign was the idea of one of the international headliners.  All international bands back this and witchfest and want to see the festival grow and carry on for years to come.

Please can I ask that you go and check out the campaign and spread the word.

Album Review: AWOLNATION – RUN

Thankfully I had the pleasure of having a sneak preview of this album, their second studio album, Run, released TODAY! 17 March 2015.

‘Megalithic Symphonic’ was always going to be a tough album to follow up on.  ‘Run’ is Aaron Bruno’s solid attempt and there is quite obviously a different tone in the lyrics and style of this album as they have matured over the years. Continue reading Album Review: AWOLNATION – RUN

Two SAMA Nominations for Howie Combrink!

Howie Combrink has just been nominated for 2 SAMA’s for his Debut Album, “Eat It While It’s Hot”!

 Receiving the SAMA nods for “BEST NEWCOMER” and “BEST ADULT CONTEMPORARY ALBUM”, trying to find the words to explain what it means to be regarded as one of the op 5 New Artists in SA Music, is harder than Combrink thought it would be.

 “I’m so excited to be nominated in the two categories at the SAMA’s this year. I’m a huge fan of all the artists that are nominated in both my categories, so to be on that list amongst the likes of Jeremy Loops, Beatenberg and many more, is such an honour. I wish all the nominees the best of luck. Bring on the SAMA’s 2015!” Continue reading Two SAMA Nominations for Howie Combrink!
