Italian noise band Solaris has debuted a new music video today for the twin tracks “Maledetti/Marnero” – filmed with a combination of live performances and striking visual content. The track comes from their recent album Un Paese di Musichette Mentre Fuori c’è la Morte, out now via Bronson Recordings. The live portion of the video was filmed by Claudio Stanghellini, shot at Bronson Club during a post lockdown release party. While the band seamlessly shifts dynamics and obtuse motifs, they blend different musical styles of noise, post-Rock, psych rock, metal, and more; they draw the most influence from artists such as Helmet, Shellac, or The Jesus Lizard. Un Paese di Musichette Mentre Fuori c’è la Morte was produced by legend Martin Bisi (Sonic Youth, Swans, Unsane). Watch the new video, exclusively at Ghost Cult

Shame doesn’t come across as musicians playing in unison as much as an A.I. becoming aware of what music is and taking a stab at it. Continue reading →
Next month will be three years since Chester Bennington ended his life. On what would have been Chris Cornell’s 53rd birthday, not only a fellow musician, but also his best friend and Godfather to his son, he took his life. It has been three years and the sadness persists. Bennington’s struggle with depression and substances was a public affair and through his lyrics, it felt like we knew what he was going through. An exceptional vocalist he fronted a band that dove into multiple genres. Either you liked Linkin Park or you hated them. Regardless, Bennington was the best vocalist of any mainstream band in the 2000s – but, before he told you to shut up, he fronted another band. Continue reading →
