General Information.

The Ugly Kings are four powerhouse blues rockers drawing influence from an eclectic and dynamic musical background. They offer a powerful injection of energy and emotion to the modern rock scene, formulating what can only be described as power blues. The catchy riffs and foot stomping rhythm lay the foundations for the deep reaching and soulful emotive vocals.

Having 1 mini-album (Of Sins) under their belt already, they are thrilled to sign with Kozmik Artifactz for the release of their debut full length album in early 2018. The Ugly Kings have supported Airbourne on their successful sold out east coast Australia tour in January 2017 with great reviews. They also supported Rival Sons in 2016 on their first Australia headline side-show in Melbourne during the Black Sabbath ‘The End’ World Tour.

“What they delivered was something that I was not ready for. A sound that is almost indescribable. It’s as if a mash up of all my favourite artists had been put into a blender and formed this delicious power sludge bluesy stoner rock. Elements of the classics such as Led Zep, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Sabbath, Danzig and a touch of Bowie were mixed in with the modern sounds of The White Stripes, Queens Of The Stone Age, Kylesa & Wolfmother. I was in heaven!” – Rogue, Inc.

“Loud, heavy, slightly-sludgy classic rock meets blues with a modern bend, played by a band that swaggered about the stage with a distinct, but subtle, air of cool. By the end, Sydney was more than happy to learn words on the fly and sing along when the front man held his mic over the mosh. The Ugly Kings are well-versed in the art of restraint, they know when to move and make the crowd get on their feet, and when to step back and let the music do the talking.” – Australian Guitar

“It’s not often you see a band have the crowd so excited and receptive by the second song in the way The Ugly Kings do with such an original sound. Only to be described as The Ugly Kings!” – Ryan O’Keefe (Airbourne Drummer)

“Great show! The Ugly Kings have really got their own thing going on and it rocks! I love all the dynamics, pushing and pulling and then always smashing it out. Great intensity and power.” – Joel O’Keefe (Airbourne Frontman & Lead Guitarist)

“Thick, groove induced chords, deep baritone vocals and a harden-the-fuck-up ethos” – Phantom’s Way

‘Promised Land, a four-minute beast that sounds like the Rival Sons and the Graveltones going head-to-head with John Bonham and Jim Morrison. With multiple riffs and deft twists and turns, it sounds fantastic..’ – SonicAbuse

For fans of The Doors, Jack White, Black Sabbath, The Black Keys, Royal Blood and Rival Sons.

General Information.

His Masters Voice call their style of music “The Devils Blues”. Listen to their 2014 album ‘Possession’ and you will hear influences from the greats of classic HEAVY rock but with a contemporary energy and relevance.

Musically and visually the band possess an inventive and original signature style that showcases the strength of their collective song writing, yet allows their individual talents to show through. His Masters Voice put everything into their live performance. To them, their audience comes first and that audience grows in number and dedication with every show.

Reviews:

“…Full of Led Zeppelin swag, they are smooth and easy on the ears. It’s hard not to get swept up in the moment and it’s never easy to fully capture to readers how great of a show they put on. Vocalist, Jesse Sorensen has the blues running through his veins, an old soul in a young man’s body that clearly lives and breathes what he does and it shows. A tight band that sound years above their average ages…”

Muzic.net

“Vocally supreme, Lyrically superb and the music is big time kick ass. Listening to them takes you on a journey like no other, both calming, trippy, hard hitting, fast paced and edgy. A must have in your music collection…”

Rock Bandom

“… I’m sick of it (blues) sounding so generic… (His Masters Voice’s music) it’s a breath of fresh air that I think has worldwide musical value”

– Zorran Mendonsa (Producer/Engineer)

The 13th Floor’s Tove Partington had this to say…

“… Everything you ever wanted from the love child of metal and dirty blues has come true with His Masters Voice. After only five shows, they have already made it to my ‘bands you must see before you die’ list…”

13th Floor

NZ Musician Album Review by Stu Edwards

“While His Masters Voice has harvested a classic sound, Follow Me Down dishes up a modern flavour that could comfortably stack up next to modern icons such Black Stone Cherry or Mastodon. Bonus live track Lucid Dream is a weighty eight minute insight into what the band are all about”

NZ Musician

NZM Fresh Talent – Clovis McEvoy

“Like a smouldering volcano, His Masters Voice have heaved into Auckland’s live music scene – and with just a two-week turnaround from stepping into the studio to the release of their debut EP, it would appear the band could erupt anytime…”

General Information.

With a sound built on fuzzy drone and swirling keyboards, Buried Feather’s live shows have built a loyal following, drawing regular comparisons to Dead Meadow and Spacemen 3. Their 2013 debut album was a woozy, atmospheric affair that was well loved on community radio right around Australia. The band toured regularly behind the record, including shows with NYC’s Endless Boogie and San Diego psych-metal titans Earthless.

Buried Feather are set to release their second full-length, Mind of the Swarm, out this February. Recorded by Paul Maybury (King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard) and mixed by Nick Franklin (The Grates, Deep Sea Arcade), the new record is a more dynamic realisation of the band’s hypnotic sound. First single “Dust” finds them solidly in kosmische territory, with a head-rush of phased guitars swirling around a locked groove. The record throws up some interesting surprises, with druggy rave-ups and dark, synth-driven slow jams sitting alongside the fuzzy rock tunes.

Friendship cover300

General Information.

Friendship is a power-trio from norway consisting of three young men and was founded in 2011. They spent countless hours in sweaty cars and cramped up rehearsing spaces.

Since their conception, the band has played everything from large festivals and venues like Kongsberg Jazzfestival and Rockefeller Music Hall to the window sill at the small pub Sonder Bar in Göttingen, Germany.

The recordings of Friendship’s debut album were made in an old community house outside of Oslo, where the band members moved in with a bunch of recording equipment and instruments. Eleven tracks were recorded. The joyful atmosphere is audible: The music was recorded by Eivind Walberg, the vocals by Øyvind Røsrud Gundersen. The record was mixed by Christian Engfelt at EngfeltForsgren Studio and mastered by Håkan Åkesson.

The power-trio has elements of funky brass, violin and a lovely psychedelic organ on the closing track. Friendship is a hard working rock band with four feet in the old music and two in the modern. The record has an interesting width with exciting dynamic tracks, seducing jamming and rock songs you’re going to want to listen to again and again.The result is tight, groovy and sexy!

Cover300

General Information.

Some of rock’s greatest bands share an interesting quality: Soul. Cream, The Stooges, The Jimi Hendrix Experience, Afghan Whigs and Vanilla Fudge all played glorious rock at concussive volumes but were also swinging to an unmistakable beat, filtering their thunderous bluster through a soul crooner’s sensibility. Heavy Glow qualifies for that exclusive roll call.

Pearls & Swine and Everything Fine is potent proof of Heavy Glow’s deep influences. Heavy Glow constructs Pearls & Swine on a foundation of fuzz-fueled hard rock, appointed with psychedelically-tinted blues and beautifully textured washes of Motown/Memphis soul. Simultaneously, a punkish verve cattle prods the retro rock vibe squarely into right now.

For this album Heavy Glow teamed with infinitely talented producers Michael Patterson (Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross, Beck, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, P. Diddy, Notorious B.I.G., Duran Duran) and Nic Jodoin (BRMC, The Morlocks, Nightmare Air). Patterson and Jodoin’s concentrated methodology resulted in an album that is black hole heavy and as cohesive as the ’89 Detroit Pistons.

Pearls & Swine and Everything Fine (with brilliant cover design by renowned artist Darren Grealish, whose work includes gig posters for Queens of the Stone Age and the Melvins and graces the walls of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame) features Jared’s totally now perspective, his innate ability to focus his love of rock/soul/psychedelia through a contemporary lens to create Heavy Glow’s modern classicism, placing the band into the sonic realm shared by QOTSA and Foo Fighters.

General Information.

Age of Man are a South Arkansas-based blues-rock trio comprised of Matt Benson on lead guitar and vocals, Brandon Borden on drums, and Eric Stone on bass. Their thick and muddy brand of blues-steeped guitar rock is reminiscent of a simpler time, stripped of modern musical conventions and cleverly re-imagined from its very core.

It all began in the early months of 2010! Matt Benson and Jeffery Greer (former drummer) just got out of a progressive-rock band, just wanting to play blues-rock and psychedelic-blues music. It didn’t take long to find a bass player and get Age of Man on their stomping feet.

Late 60’s and early 70’s power trios were the drive and inspiration for their sound, as well as current bands like Radio Moscow and early the Black Keys stuff! Benson was very much influenced by Jimi Hendrix early in life, but even older, less polished blues music would become a huge influence on his guitar playing.

They began playing a lot of shows and some festivals, even opening for one of their favorite bands, Radio Moscow and later opening for Dax Riggs! They also had a 12 song demo on hand, very poorly recorded and handcrafted right in the jam room at Benson’s house. Sometime in mid-2012 they took a road trip to Georgia and had their first studio session, recording a 6 song EP. However, this EP never saw the light of day.

After e-mailing change after change and realizing the only solution was to drive back to the studio or just scrap it all together… So they decided to simply scrap it into obscurity. Around the middle of 2013 Jeff left the band, and Brandon Borden joined on drums. Later that year they recorded another 6 song EP at Benson’s house.

Eventually they found a keyboardist/organ player that would fit right in and beef up their sound. Musician Eric Stone joined the band in late 2014 and Age of Man was now a 4 piece band for the first time ever. However, this was very short lived, Darryl Driskill left the band as their bass player. Stone moved over to bass guitar and left the organ behind, only to pick it up again during the recording of their upcoming album release… Less than a year later, with the perfect band lineup, the band went 2 hours north to Wolfman Studios in Little Rock, Arkansas and recorded their first full length studio album!

Of course, they had to call it About Time!

General Information.

Gin Lady formed in early 2011 by members Joakim Karlsson, Magnus Kärnebro, Anthon Johansson, Fredrik Normark and Klas Holmgren.

They landed a record deal with Transubstans Records in January 2012.

The group is influenced by artists such as The Faces, Alice Cooper, Master’s Apprentices, Cream and Blue Oyster Cult. The sound is straightforward and heading for the roots of rock. Earlier ventures Black Bonzo and The All Janet clearly show the members taste for detail and perfection in their sound and songwriting.

Gin Lady’s debut album, which hit stores in 2012 and is simply entitled ”Gin Lady” is no exception.

In 2015 Gin Lady signed with Kozmik Artifactz/Bilocation Records. The follow up ‘Call the Nation’ shows the band in best form and will be released November 2015 on CD and 180g vinyl.
