Newsflash: In Communion with Vvon Dogma I!

RockmusicRaider Newslfash - Vvonn Dogma I - Communion - Album CoverThe RockmusicRaider offices just love those jewels all of a sudden ejected from the nameless masses of music creations. Like some sort of magic volcano gone to the other side. And specifically tasty are those bands that consciously and purposefully defy styles and currents. By this definition they threaten to become their very own genre – a victim of their own success if you will. We had them before on RockmusicRaider with bands like Dirty Sound Magnet and their self-declared modus operandi aptly named Creative Rock. 

Into this category fall the eccentric geeks of the Canadian band Vvonn Dogma I and their début EP Communion. Why would we call them that? First, look at the gear they wield: A 9-string Frankenstein bass, an 8-string electric guitar, synths, violins, acoustics and rumbling drums. Got hooked? Raid this some more...

Infinitas – Civitas Interitus (2017) – Review

RockmusicRaider Review - Infinitas - Civitas Interitus - Album CoverDo you like spelunking? Fancy mystical landscapes gorging with ancient lore and accounts of witches? Then you need to visit Muotathal somewhere in nowhere-land in Switzerland. The region is home of the famous Hölloch, a world-renowned cave system of a couple of hundred klicks in length.

Sometimes the goofy Swiss really knock themselves out. Wikipedia indicates the cave to be 200.4 kilometers in length, which should elevate whoever wrote that sentence to dork nirvana on a world stage of wannabe dorks. So, don’t you ever misstate that (supposed) fact by even one millimeter or the ghost of the last witch – the Kastenvögtin – will surely beat you senseless.

So, why am I not surprised that this location bred Infinitas – a metal band, no less.Got hooked? Raid this some more...

RockmusicRaider Newsflash - Black Absinthe - Early Signs of Denial - Album CoverSome time back the Canadian band Black Absinthe got on RockmusicRaider’s mighty rock radar with their 2016 EP Early Signs of Denial. It was this raw mix or red-hot rock that really stuck and earned them a spot on the RMR blog.

This time they are back with a pretty cool video featuring their flagship track The Wild. To get the session recorded, they went a-pirating outside of Toronto a bit like the late Alestorm crew. And shot a jam video session on a pirate boat for kids (forsooth..) with a bunch of fans and friends. 

In the end, nobody got keelhauled in the process – so it appears at least.Got hooked? Raid this some more...
