Three recommended artists greet the new year with fresh sounds
FFO: Theatrical Metal Opera, Metal; Power Metal; Post Industrial, Electro Rock
Wasting no time in getting underway for 2022, DiAmorte has released a magnificent video accompanying the song, “Where The Light Grows Cold.” For a dose of theatrical metal opera, DiAmorte rules supreme. With featured artists lending their talents, including the Budapest Scoring Orchestra, as for the music, the performances, engineering, mixing and mastering are all exceptional. The same holds true for the video and the editing. DiAmorte evokes an epic feel on screen and in the studio.
DiAmorte is a theatrical metal production with an international cast. Available now, checkout the single for “Where The Light Grows Cold” via Dark Star Records and the YouTube video.
On Jan. 21, 2022, power metalists Planeswalker will release the debut album, Tales Of Magic. Inspired by the “Magic The Gathering” digital card game, two cuts from the collection, the title track lyric video and the video for “The Spark,” are currently available. Planeswalker, the duo of guitarist Jason Ashcraft and vocalist Sozos Michael, is joined by special guests Brittney Slayes (Unleash the Archers); Heather Michele (ex-Helion Prime); Taylor Washington (Paladin); R.A. Voltaire (Ravenous) and other musicians.
Tales Of Magic is a seven-song collection which includes the Kiss cover, “A Million To One.” Preorder the digital album on Bandcamp.
Post-industrial, industrial pop and electro-rock all fit the tag for Josie Pace’s album IV0X10V5. Available Feb. 4, 2022, through Negative Gain Productions, there is no mistaking Josie Pace’s singularity. Physical, visual, vocal and stylized, Pace’s strength and sass radiate from the artist’s songs and videos. For instance, “Underestimated,” from IV0X10V5, fits that bill. As for instrumentation, the synth riffage on each track is of the highest order.
Also, from IV0X10V5, the single “Storm and Stress,” released Jan. 7, 2022, is another highlight worthy of recognition. Considering Pace has shared the stage with Combichrist, Powerman 5000, Davey Suicide and more, the Detroit-based artist’s approach to music is surely compelling.
