Legendary Swedish progressive rockers Kaipa, led by mastermind Hans Lundin, recently announced the release of their new studio album “Children of the Sounds” for September 22nd via InsideOut Music.

Now, the band is pleased to reveal the lyric video for the album’s title track which you can see in the player at the bottom.

On the song, Hans comments: “I’ve often wondered where all those notes are coming from when the inspiration suddenly hits me in one of those magical moments when I just have to start writing a new song. Maybe I have a huge library of notes that I’ve collected during all my life, hidden somewhere in my sub-consciousness.

“Maybe these notes have been played before and then they just vanish in the air. After slumbering for many years, they suddenly wake up eager to start a new life and to form new combinations, and so they guide me through the writing process.”

The track listing for the album is as follows:

1. Children of the Sounds 11:31
2. On The Edge of New Horizons 17:10
3. Like A Serpentine 12:52
4. The Shadowy Sunlight 6:57
5. What’s Behind The Fields 9:31

Today, German melodic/progressive death metal act Damnation Defaced presents the title-track as a first glimpse into the new concept album “Invader From Beyond” which will be unveiled on October 6th via Apostasy Records. Check it out in the player below.

The concept: A series of heavy chemical strikes sealed the fate for the planet Niom. The denizens had to flee and find a new home. The desperate quest of finding a new habitable planet forced the Darnocs to transfer their consciousness into the computing unit of a spacecraft. This allowed them to brim over mortality and gain more time. “Invader From Beyond” tells the story of the Darnoc-pilot Daza Znieh who became the last hope for the legacy of the Darnoc from planet Niom.

The track listing is as follows:

1. Niom: 004d004f0049004e
2. Goddess of Machines
3. Invader from Beyond
4. Mark of Cain
5. The Observer
6. The Key to Your Voice
7. Rendezvous with Destiny
8. All Comes to Its End
9. Back from Apathy
10. The Creator’s Fall
11. Embraced by Infinity

Light The Torch is a burgeoning new force within the hard rock/metal community which just inked a new world-wide deal with Nuclear Blast Entertainment. The group, formerly known as Devil You Know, features the iconic Howard Jones (ex-Killswitch Engage) on vocals, Francesco Artusato (ex-All Shall Perish) on guitars and Ryan Wombacher (ex-Bleeding Through) on bass.

The new full-length album is currently in the mixing stages and showcases the band in an all new light, as Jones delivers the most poignant performance of his storied career. With no more song-writing restrictions, the band are reaching greater heights trying out a plethora of new ideas, which you will all hear in the coming months. Follow the band on Facebook at this location.

Light The Torch will absolutely continue to perform Devil You Know songs and as stated below, the only way to legally continue would be under this course of action.

Light The Torch states: “After member issues and legalities continued for a year with no end in sight, we collectively felt it was time to put DYK to rest. Every effort was made to avoid this decision, but it needed/had to be done for the sake of moving forward. We will be forever grateful to those of you who shared that journey with us. With that said, we decided that this was a perfect time to write and record something truly different, something that reflected what we have been through and what we have become. Our new album is almost done being mixed, and there will be many more details coming in the following days and weeks. We are Light The Torch. See you soon.”
