CRO-MAGS “The Quarantine Show” Full Live Stream Available

Announced on Friday, March 13, the Body Count/CRO-MAGS show at Webster Hall in NYC was postponed, leading CRO-MAGS founder/bassist/vocalist Harley Flanagan and crew (guitarists Rocky George and Joseph Affe, Garry “Gman” Sullivan on drums) hit SIR Studios on Sunday, March 15 and took their set online, now known as “The Quarantine Show.” Today, the band delivers the full, multi-camera performance.

“I am glad we were able to give you all a free concert in this time of quarantine. I would not have been able to do it without my team and I would like to thank them. These are the times we have to find new ways to help each other. We as people can’t let the fear turn us against each other. Stay strong, be smart and stay safe!”Harley Flanagan

 

Flanagan reflects on recent times and the importance of doing this show, “I am very unhappy that the show with Body Count this weekend was postponed by Governor Cuomo – I was really looking forward to it, but I am more sad for the many people who are going to be out of work for who knows how long, and for those who have become ill from this terrible disease. We all must take extra precautions these days, but we will learn how to deal with this like we have learned how to deal with deadly diseases in the past. Be safe, be strong and be smart. The show will be rescheduled, and life will go on. Eventually we will all be “killed by death” just ask Lemmy. If it’s not one thing it will be another, but life will go on. And so will this show.”

03. No One’s Victim
The history of the CRO-MAGS is integral to the history of Hardcore, it’s evolution from punk and the development of alternative music genres such as hardcore, cross-over, thrash metal, post punk and grunge to name a few. Numerous iconic bands from METALLICA to GREEN DAY, and individuals such as Dave Grohl have credited CRO-MAGS with having had a primal influence on their development.

Born out of the violence and depravity of the Lower East Side of New York in the late 70s and early 80s, the CRO-MAGS was the brain-child of a very young Harley Flanagan (at the time 14 years old) when still playing with THE STIMULATORS. By 1982/83 he wrote and recorded the very first CRO-MAGS demos consisting of  four songs that would become the blue print for the seminal 1986 »Age of Quarrel«. He wrote all of the music, played each instrument and sang. Before long he connected with Parris Mayhew and the two started writing music and auditioning band members.

After several line-ups, 5 studio albums (beyond the original demos) and 30 + years of tours around the world, CRO-MAGS remains one of the most iconic hardcore bands with arguably the greatest reach beyond the genre.

CRO-MAGS

“In the Beginning”

Why now? In Harley’s words: “Lemmy came to me in a dream and said, ‘Take it back mate, it’s yours, you started it.’ The fact is, I never legally lost the name Cro-Mags, others were using it without my permission, while I was raising my kids. An agreement was struck with the previous members and I regained full control over the name worldwide. Now with an amazing line up and 2 record deals I am moving forward. I have a great team of people behind me; I have never felt stronger, better or more creative.”

And so bassist Harley Flanagan has reached a settlement with singer John Joseph and drummer Mackie Jayson regarding ownership of the CRO-MAGS name. Flanagan will now perform under the name CRO-MAGS while Joseph and Jayson will perform as CRO-MAGS “JM”.

In 2019 Cro-Mags signed with Victory Records and Arising Empire.

The single: consist of 3 tracks, ‘Don’t Give In’, ‘Drag You Under’, and ‘No One’s Victim’.

Harley: “The lyrics are meant to inspire and kick you in the ass when you need it. Some might not take them that way, but that’s my intention. Sometimes you need someone to tell you to man-the-fuck-up, or woman-up, cause life ain’t easy and you will get crushed if you don’t. I wrote them more for myself than anyone else, cause sometimes I need to hear these things, as I think we all do.”

Some of them were inspired by loss, the loss of friends, by suicide, cancer, struggling with depression, mortality and ultimately the beauty of life. You have to be able to recognize it, even when you’re suffering and struggling. Although we all fight our own personal battles, and they vary, none of us are alone in the fact that we have to fight our battles, and many of them we must fight alone. In that way, we all have something in common, besides needing basic things like food water and shelter. We also must learn how to cope with struggle and mortality. Some rise to the top while others crash and burn.

I feel like I crashed and burned enough times that I somehow managed to rise back to the top. I feel stronger, happier mentally, spiritually and physically than I have in years; and it did not come without a struggle or cost. But that is life; you have to fight for what you want, and you also have to know how temporary it all is.

The single and album feature, along with Harley Flanagan, Gabby Abularach (Gil Evans Orchestra, amongst many other projects) who played on Cro-Mags»Alpha Omega« (1992) and »Near Death Experience« (1993); Rocky George (formerly of Suicidal Tendencies and Fishbone) who played on Cro-Mags»Revenge« (2000); and GaryGManSullivan (who has played with everyone from the B-52‘s, Berny Worrel of Parliament Funkadelic, TM Stevens etc.), who joined Cro-Mags in the 90s.

SLIME is an institution that has existed intermittently since the 1980s and who shaped political punk rock in Germany like no other band. SLIME is now in the tenth year after her reunion, and that’s a damn good thing. Because we still need strong voices against fascism, we still need punk and we still need SLIME.

SLIME founding fathers Dirk Jora (vocals), Elf (guitar), Christian Mevs (guitar) and the new members Nici (bass) and Alex Schwers (drums) seem to be aware of their responsibilities and have now recorded their third studio album since their reunification. On »Wem Gehört Die Angst« SLIME stay true to their line and address important social problems such as anger, activism and the ongoing struggle against fascism. Whether biographically such as at ‘Ebbe Und Flut’ or steady as in ‘Paradies‘, where people are concerned who have always questioned the prevailing circumstances. Or as a clear political declaration of war against the Nazification of the West. ‘Die Toten Wollen Wieder Alleine Sein’, ‘Weisser Anschaum’, the title song ‘Wem Gehört Die Angst’, ‘Fetten Jahre’ – the new punk rock hits beyond the hits are ruthless reflections of a time when dark browns are marching in again undisturbed sits in the parliaments.
And all this in the classic SLIME guise: driving, angry, melancholic, but always hymnical and direct.

Press-quotes:

“The songs distinctly gained in depth, expression and dynamics and were vaguely oriented to what Annisokay had recently put out. In addition, the arrangements are much more varied than in the past. Songs like ‘Mistakes’ (the Hit of the album), the emotionally charged and cleverly staged ‘Lost In You’ as well as ‘Back’ ( between Muse, Thrice and Biffy Clyro) show what Vitja got in their sleeves apart from the former smashers.”Metal Hammer
 
“VITJA have done everything right with their singer swap that can be done right and now have a much broader stylistic scope in front of them, which for the band itself might have felt like an immense alleviation in the songwriting process.”
Stormbringer.at

“VITJA have been on a steep upward path since their foundation and the band has emerged more and more.
The new frontman Gabriel Spigolon gives the band a whole new musical orientation and the journalists first have to learn to deal with so much maturity.”
Oliver Williams, To Go Berlin

“Qualitatively, it’s flawless!”Fuze

VITJA – »THIRST«

VITJA beats back with the powerful comeback album »THIRST«. A new era has begun. The cards are shuffled, all the signs are on victory and the sound is clearer, more mature and more consistent than ever before. With new frontman Gabriel Spigolon and new attitude the quartet sets sails for the top league.

»THIRST« is the name of the new chapter of a versatile and ambitious band, which now wants to build on past successes and, moreover, wants to climb the summit. Six years of band history have been turned upside down and at the same time they have created an inimitable sound garb, which is not represented in Germany so far.

The songwriting begins in the autumn of 2018. The quartet decides to put it into a new design that has been experienced and so far harmonious in order to remain true to itself and at the same time varied. Twenty songs are being produced over the months in the homestudios of the boys, which are to characterize the new and unique sound of the Rhinelanders.
“We found our sound. Each of us is extremely happy with the development. Still, we had to avoid offending people. We are sure to have found a perfect solution for our fans and ourselves“, says drummer Daniel Pampuch.

The guitars were recorded in the Sureshot Studios by Daniel Keller. The vocal recordings took place in the Mega Blaster Studios by Timo Bonner (OUR MIRAGE), who also mixes and masters the LP. To track the vocals, they took a lot of time to decide where to go.
“We wanted to go beyond the well-known Vitja sound and experimented with the new vocal possibilities“, says guitarist Vladimir Dontschenko.

The first single ‘Back’ is musically very broad. The versatile guitar playing of Dontschenko, combined with Pampuch´s fast, rhythm-driven, paired with the individual basslines of Mario Metzler and the varied vocals of Gabriel Spigolon, creates a unique atmosphere that leaves endless room for interpretation. The breakdown interrupts the hymn-like mood and makes the entire song explode in fractions of a second.
‘Back’ reflects everything about what we are and how we feel. He embodies the unrest of the last months and lets us arrive anyway“, says Pampuch.

»THIRST« is a new and fresh VITJA which gives the listener the freedom to choose between dreamy hovering states, wild headbanging or melancholy questioning.

2019 – VITJA is back.
Better and stronger than ever.

VITJA are:
Gabriel Spigolon | Vocals
Fabio De Dominicis | Guitars
Florian Vogel | Bass
Daniel Pampuch | Drums

“It’s a virtuosity which will no doubt sate the appetite of TesseracT and Periphery fans, yet there’s also a strength in their songwriting which sets them apart from the pack. Magnifique.”  Kerrang!

“Novelists FR are taking a much bigger step forward. Metal Hammer

“Energetic rhythms, complex and hidden riffs, at the same time subtle melodies: Novelists FR impress with their third full-length album. Although “C’est La Vie” will not be released until January 24, but it’s worth the wait. A refreshingly multi-faceted record. Don’t miss it!” FUZE

“If you like melodic metalcore, which is sometimes a bit technical and you prefer the clean sound over the hard one, you will be very satisfied with the new album of Novelists FR.”MoreCore

“Bringing some much needed heart and spirit to the technical end of metalcore, the third record from this Parisian quartet sees them redefining their sound once more.” Rock Sound

NOVELISTS FR started early 2013 when Florestan and Amael Durand met former A Call To Sincerity members Matteo Gelsomino, Nicolas Delestrade and Charles-Henri Teule. Starting strong with the release of 6 singles, one every two months, which created the foundations for a strong and loyal fanbase from the get-go, NOVELISTS FR then released their debut album on Arising Empire in november 2015.

After touring Europe extensively with bands like For Today, Breakdown of Sanity, Dream on Dreamer, Silent planet etc.. NOVELISTS embarqued on a summer of 2017 tour with established bands WHILE SHE SLEEPS and NORTHLANE. Best way to conclude the »Souvenirs« (2015) album cycle. Finally back with a follow up album soberly named »Noir« released September 8th via Arising Empire in Europe and Sharptone records in the USA. This concept album, shows a growing maturity in the band’s music and confirms them as a very promising young band in the modern metal scene.

After supporting the album in Europe on tours with Make them Suffer, Eskimo Callboy, aswell as on their own headliner tour, 2018 brings new opportunities for the band, a headliner tour in Asia, and also their touring debut in the U.S.A. with Like MothS To Flames. In the summer of 2019, the band announces some changes had to be made on the name due to legal issues.

In October 2019, Novelists FR announces their new album would be released in January of the following year, after a month long Europe tour with Being As An Ocean.

NOVELISTS FR has become, in only a few years, a rising star within the progressive metal scene, and it seems they are now ready to confirm it by releasing their highly anticipated third effort.

NOVELISTS FR are:
Matteo Gelsomino | Vocals
Florestan Durand | Guitar
Nicolas Delestrade | Bass
Amael Durand | Drums
