Crosses, or ††† if you prefer, really prefers foreplay to making love. The synthwave and electro-rock music duo made up of Deftones’ frontman Chino Moreno and Far producer/ multi-instrumentalist Shaun Lopez has been teasing us for over a year with singles, a top-tier cover, and pulse-quickening videos as they readied their new EP, Permanent.Radiant (Warner Music Group). Fit in and around Chino’s heavy schedule with Deftones and Shaun’s producing work, the new EP continues to build upon the path they laid out, minus former collaborator Chuck Doom, who has departed the project.

Crosses, the duo made up of Deftones’ Chino Moreno and producer/multi-instrumentalist Shaun Lopez recently announced their forthcoming EP Permanent Radiant, due for release on December 9th and share a new track and sexy video for “Sensation” – which you can watch now!

I think we have to be clear from the start… At The Movies will not be for all of you. Mastermind behind this all-star Heavy Metal film soundtrack covers machine (yes, for the uninitiated, this really is a collective who work remotely together to re-do songs from Hollywood soundtracks) Chris Laney, guitarist of The Pretty Maids, is very clear that the purpose of ATM was a group of friends “looking for something to have some fun with (during lockdown)… asking ourselves all the time… can we get away with this?”
And so they set about reinterpreting hit songs from movies. But not the rockier songs, for where would be the fun and bile-induction in that? While Volume I – re-released at the same time to partner its sister act (#SorryNotSorry) – focused on the eighties, The Soundtrack Of Your Life Volume II (Atomic Fire) bites the bullet and rolls down its jacket sleeves, musses up its hair a little and steps into the world of the Hugh Grant RomCom and takes on some of the nineties movie megahits. For better or for worse. Continue reading →
Lady Gaga’s new album Chromatica (Interscope) released this weekend, and among the album’s tracks is a duet with Sir Elton John. The PMA filled dance track ‘Sine From Above’ features Gaga, a major Elton-o-phile, who once performed a tribute to the artist dressed as Elton, and sing together on the track. Their voices complement each other really well. Check it out. Continue reading →
Dark Synthwave/Metal Musicians and visionary artists Patriarchy have dropped their jaw-dropping, genre-hopping new album today, Asking For It via the Dero Arcade label. Made up of duo Actually (aka Actually Huizenga) – LA-Based multidisciplinary artist – and Andrew Means (3Teeth multi-instrumentalist), the pair creates heavy, politically charged, and Gothy tracks that are equal parts KMFDM, Lords of Acid, but also danceable like PVRIS. It’s the perfect album for pre-gaming in your house for a night out with friends, while plotting to overthrow the establishment. Ghost Cult brings you their full album stream right now to enjoy.

Ghost Cult caught up with Death Valley High mastermind Reyka Osburn recently to discuss their brand new covers/remixes EP Duel, out now via minusHEAD Records. We chatted with Reyka about the new EP, how the group chooses covers from bands such as Metallica, Faith No More, Eurythmics, collaborating with peers and friends on remixes, the mix between Goth rock and dance music, working with a mentor and friend like Chino Moreno of Deftones/Crosses, and the timeline for a new full-length DVH album.

Continuing to be a prominent figure for the past decade in British hard rock, Frank Carter has remained one heck of a frontman throughout different projects. Since 2015, he’s put his efforts tantalizing the scene with the Rattlesnakes. Alongside slaying guitarist, Dean Richardson continues to succeed finding their softer side with End of Suffering(International Death Cult).
What a truly intriguing mix of styles this appears on paper! A duo comprised of Punk underground overlord and current Dead Cross member Justin Pearson and hip-hop producer Luke Henshaw, Planet B are bringing so much to the table of their self-titled album (Ipecac Recordings) and are doing do with politically charged lyrics which are looking to rail against “the lack of humanity in the world…….”Continue reading →
“We all die. The goal isn’t to live forever but to create something that will…” begins the fifth Amaranthe album, all proudly released by Spinefarm. And while this particular release may not be quite in and of itself destined to live indefinitely in our hearts and minds, as a collective, the band really must be given credit for carving a sound and style that is wholly and completely their own. Ten years deep into a healthy and prolific career, Helix not only shows no sign of letting up but feels like a second wind to launch the band into a second decade.Continue reading →
