ASTRALIA - Atlas [2014]

Astralia is a three-piece post-rock/ambient-rock band from Barcelona, Spain. The band was born in November 2010, and after drinking from different musical styles, they decided to create songs with new sounds, new atmospheres, new textures, often governed by the simplicity of a few notes. Songs that demand their time, their pauses, explaining feelings and emotions, motivated largely by a power source, the nature. Astralia self-produce and self-edit their first work, ‘Astralia’, between November 2011 and February 2012, containing a selection of some of their early work. Two years later, Astralia came up with their new album ‘Atlas’. The album was released on May 13 2014.

KERMIT - Litoral [2014]

KERMIT is a jazz/post-rock project from Malaga (Spain) that was born in 2011 from the desire to experiment with the endless possibilities offered by two guitars, a bass and a drumkit. The result is a landscape of multiple textures that make sense when played together, only when superimposed. KERMIT is a melancholic trip that is sometimes subtle and tender, and some others aggressive and heartbreaking.

ATLANTIDA SAVES - The Soundtracks (EP) [2014]

The band Atlantida Saves embodies its musical ideas in context of instrumental music combining pulsing rock energy with sudden mood. The current band's direction has been realized in tunes of fresh album. This record is a result of live experiments with each track, its atmosphere and structure. Despite Moscow descent this material has been inspired by US modern-rock formations, though it is still far from being categorized. Atlantida Saves keeps the breath of big city's everyday life in each track working out an unusual and individual musical approach.

ARCHANGEL - Calm in chaos [2014]

Archangel is a one man project started by me, Sriki from Bangalore, a metropolitan city in southern India. The kind of music I make has a ton of influences, and all in all tends to focus on delivering mild to heavy riffs in an incredibly atmospheric setting. You can call it progressive metal with a hint of ambience.

BARROWS - Red giant [2014]

Barrows fuses atmospheric and heavy music in the form of sprawling concept albums. The band creates entrancing, circling riffs and rhythms intercut with explosive peaks and brilliant subtleties.
"Red Giant", the sophomore album by Barrows is fittingly massive in thematic scope as it is in sonic heft. An album about the life of a star and what happens after it dies, the band depicts the stages of celestial death throughout the album’s five epic tracks.

Note from the artist:
This album, as the title suggests, is my 7th release. After some time experimenting with my bass guitar I managed to make it sound like an 8-string guitar 'cause I still don't have one, plus there are some songs that are played with a six-string guitar in B. It has very heavy riffs, lots of guitar layers and leads and polyrhythms. I really hope you enjoy this album.
NOTE: If Bandcamp free downloads are over please check out my Facebook Page, there's an alternative free download link there! My PayPal account is out of my reach, so I'm not able to actually get the money you're seding me! Also I feel better when I know you didn't have to pay for it since I don't spend any extra money for doing this :D
Really dig a lot this artist and this new release. Thx to him for sharing it free!
