There isn’t a lot of info out there about this internationally blended quartet, so let’s let the music do the talking because with Utopium, the music is what it is all about. The nine-track self-titled album isn’t very long, but the music contained therein is more than enough to alter your mood. Utopium is light on vocals and heavy on their indie/alt rock musicianship. The band has been a way for a while prior to the release of their new album. Utopium formed in the late 90s and released a couple of EPs and full-length albums throughout the years. Their new self-titled work was released 28 April 2014.
For fans of A Place to Bury Strangers, Mogwai, My Bloody Valentine, Slint, The Jesus And Mary Chain…
For nearly a year, A Metal State of Mind has been following the progress of dark, melodic, atmospheric, alt rocker Johnny Wore Black. The band’s arrival onto the music scene was a slow and methodical process, but everything is about to be unveiled with the anticipated full-length release of Walking Underwater. The British stuntman turned recording artist has been teasing us with numerous singles and accompanying videos; some of which featured collaborations with Megadeth’s very own bassist David Ellefson. Though our focus is mainly aimed at the delight of metal in its most ruthless forms, an album like Walking Underwater is captivating. It penetrates the core and stirs emotions.
