I just want to say...thanks.

Hi everyone,

I just want to say thanks to all bands who share music freely on the web (and principally on bandcamp, the best site for discovering great talents) and those who allowed me to post  their work here.
Hope that the most bands will follow this path, this is how it must be, this is how i see music.

Support artists, listen to them, talking with them, and buy physical copy or make a donation.
I'm completely sure that many new talents are still sleeping, they are welcome in advance here.

Take care.

Sly

THEN TRAGEDY STRUCK - The cosmic aesthetic (EP) [2012]

Then Tragedy Struck is a solo project from the mind of teen multi-instrumentalist, Mark Mossberg who has an uncontrollable desire to write music heavy, progressive, and melodic music that is more complex than what is popular in music today. He is the one who writes and arranges the music, records the instruments, and produces the album as a whole.

Launching songs from their upcoming 1st full-lenght and their 1st EP (available on bandcamp), they point up with a modest project direct to your senses.

DELUSIONS - The language barrier [2011]

Amidst most bands in their respective genre these days, melody and harmony seems to be a key element to the attention sustained by any desired audience or wealth of fans. Delusions, despite any premeditated first impression, carry this desired weight with each song they present - no matter how heavy, or how dark. Producer Drew Fulk exemplified this in their highly anticipated debut record for 2011, "The Language Barrier," to be released through Tragic Hero Records. This release packs 10 crushing songs, each supplied with their own unique groove, texture, and low-tuned striations similar to the likes of For The Fallen Dreams, Meshugghah, and Misery SIgnals.
There is a also a noticeable sense of comforting ambiance in each song, characterized to the writing styles of Oceana (prior years) and Of Machines. Vocalist Trevor Gildbride maintains a charisma that will allow fans to separate him from any other multitude of competitive vocalists, taking into additional consideration the raw, distinct tonality of his voice that surely leaves a "memorable kick" to back of one's head.

MASS CULTURE - Amoralism (EP) [2012]

Mass Culture, formed in 2011, is composed from four individuals, coming from Tripolis-Sparti-Athens, Greece.
Each member has had its own musical path and identity, but having common components and a wide appreciation for the music of bands such as Isis, Neurosis, Cult of Luna, they decided to start up a band somewhere along those lines.
They started, however, experimenting and incorporating further elements into their music, varying from the post-hardcore outfits of Time to Burn and Buried Inside, to the doomy sound of Yob, with a Fall of Efrafa/ Downfall of Gaia dark neocrust feel, retaining the ambient/post-metal Omega Massif-like sound and, of course, many more.
