‘Council House Opera’ rockers Warme have taken on a different approach to their music with new single release ‘New Man’.
Drawing on the devastating experience the band has had with heroin in the past, this song is deeper and darker than their previous releases. It shows a softer side of the usually tough rock’n’rollers. While painting an emotional picture of the difficulties that addiction brings about the lads demonstrate not only song writing skills but also the ability to transcend into a mindset that requires to look old demons straight into the eyes. Having managed to fight the devils of their past, the band shows that there is reason for hope and that becoming a ‘New Man’ is possible for everyone who struggles with addiction.
When Classic Rock meets Metal in Russia the outcome is far from boring – Mechanical Man’s self-titled debut album is a cracking example of what Metal Rock can be when five people decide to shake things up a bit a put some experimental fervour into their tracks.
The band is mingling hardcore guitar riffs with a blazing vocal energy and, oddly, manages to perfectly marry that with a little ragtime-influenced piano prelude in the first song on the album called (guess what?) ‘Mechanical Man’. There’s no point in mentioning any particular favourites in this album as the record is a masterpiece from beginning to end and I strongly advice to listen to it as a whole. Mechanical Man is a band to watch out for!
Having come a long way from madness to success, Healthy Junkies are what today’s music scene needs – a refreshing take on a somewhat older genre. In celebrations of 40 years since the Sex Pistols released their legendary album ‘Never Mind The Bollocks’, Healthy Junkies are one of the most authentic bands to keep the chain going. With their latest album ‘Box of Chaos’ they prove that rage towards a flawed capitalist system is still up to date. Heavily criticising a world in which each one of us is constantly being watched on CCTV, songs like ‘Watch Out’ are a statement of the Big Brother state of affairs we live in.
For all those who think the spirit of the 70s has died, think again! Healthy Junkies are the prove that the mixture of rebellion and great music is still very much alive.
