Eyes Set To Kill

Hometown: Chandler, AZ
Genre: Screamo, Rock, Acoustic
Sounds like: Meg & Dia, A Skylit Drive
Current Album: When Silence Is Broken The Night Is Torn
Myspace: myspace.com/eyessettokilll
Official Site:

It’s rare that I come by a band that immediately catches my attention. Eyes Set To Kill has done that for me. They’ve crossed so many popular music styles today that makes it their own. Gut tearing screams woven delicately with an angel’s voice couldn’t have sounded any better. Eyes Set To Kill has it. I recently found out that their lead vocalist, Lindsay, has left the band on personal matters. The band has started a search process for a new vocalist. I’m not sure how this is going to effect the quickly developing band. We can only wait and see. Either way they’re all talented musicians and I can’t wait to see where they could go. Check out tracks Darling and Liar In The Glass.

MUSIC VIDEO OF THE DAY: Valencia The Space Between

In 1977 today, the BBC announced a ban on the new Sex Pistols single ‘God Save The Queen’ saying its, “in gross bad taste”. And the IBA issued a warning to all radio stations saying the playing the single would be in breach of Section 4:1:A of the Broadcasting act. The single reached No.2 on the UK chart. A year before the Sex Pistols ban, The Who gave themselves a place in the Guinness book of Records as the loudest performance of a rock band at 120 decibels, when they played at Charlton Athletic Football ground.

I came across this band a couple of days ago and really liked their sound. Their transitions are flawless with great guitar riffs and catchy lyrics. They are one of those bands that just get up pump, for whatever reason. Their new album, Fiends, comes out in stores tomorrow and I urge you to pick it up.

Sound The Alarm has a sound to them that leave me happy. It’s like a build-in aura. They have catchy hooks and up beat music. They are getting ready to release their new album Stay Inside later this summer. I expect to hear these guys touring with some big artists, and making a big impression. This band is well developed and could only go one way…forward. Check out Suffocating on their myspace, great song.

MUSIC VIDEO OF THE DAY: Underoath Writing On The Walls

Back in 2003, London’s Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) formally cautions Pete Townshend for “accessing a Web site containing child abuse images” in 1999. Townshend-who was arrested in January on suspicion of possessing child pornographic material- is placed on a U.K. register of sex offenders where he is to remain thusly listed for five years. An MPS statement emphasizes that Townshend cooperated with the probe and did not possess any downloaded child-porn images.

Alucard

Hometown: Sterling Heights, MI
Genre: Rock, Punk
Sounds like: From First To Last, Senses Fail
Current Album: After Dark
Myspace: myspace.com/alucardrock
Official Site: alucardrock.com

Here’s a hometown favorite that’s quickly become known. My buddy let me borrow a copy of this CD and I was quickly impressed. Alucard’s music is progressively punk and driven with rock. Impressive riffs and catch hooks easily get you singing along. It’s always cool to see local bands grow and I enjoy supporting guys like Alucard. I think they deserve more recognition and that’s why I’m recommending them to you today. So click on the album above and order it. Trust me, its worth it. Favorite tracks include Resignation Song and Summer’s Coming. Listen up!

I don’t know if I’d call this luck, but for the second time this tour Valencia’s van has been broken into. They said that barely anything was even stolen, but regardless they’ve been invaded. Here’s a video update from the band:

After multiple recommendations to listen to this band, I was instantly hooked. If their debut album This Could Be A Possibility didn’t give you the perfect summer feeling I don’t know what does. If you’re looking for a new CD to pop in your car this summer, Valencia has your back. Some of my favorites include Space Between, 3000 Miles, Away We Go. We spring here, it’s only days away from the summer sun.
