SBRUTo celebrate the release of Volenté ‘Broken Promises’ single, the genre bending ‘So Many Times’ is available for a free download, so make sure you treat your ears this Easter weekend with a gorgeous offering by one of South Wales’ finest electro pop sirens.

‘Broken Promises’ was released March 25th via Dockrad Records, and has gained a wonderful amount of critical acclaim, proving to be a quirky yet highly addictive piece of pop that definitely stirs up intrigue and wonder.

Light Parades, one of the UK’s most gorgeous indie bands have a stunning new video for ‘Adolescence’, which comes from album Through All Times, which was released through the band’s own label, Rainbow Box Music, on March 25th. Light Parades’ Through All Times is an anthology of beautifully crafted alt-pop pieces that are drenched with passion, sweeping vocals and stunning musical imagery that captivate the mind and seduces the heart.

The world's most prestigious metal festival, Wacken Open Air, known for its elite line up of the globe's best metal bands is bringing the largest metal contest on the planet Wacken Metal Battle to Canada. Recruiting 37 independent Canadian bands after hundreds of submissions to compete, Wacken Metal Battle Canada will select one true champion to represent the nation with highest honour at this summer's 2013 edition of Wacken Open Air Festival in Wacken, Germany.

Being held in Toronto, ON and Montreal, QC during the months of May and June, Canadian metal bands from across the country will challenge one another to join a list of Canadian heavyweights such as Voivod, Exciter, Razor, Annihilator, Anvil, Kataklysm, Cryptopsy, 3 Inches of Bloods, Despised Icon and Danko Jones who have performed at the festival in years past.
Hailing from the city of Wyandotte, Michigan, Jacob Moscynski is a singer/songwriter who writes music of the experimental and indie persuasion. He’s been making music for many years now, ever since he was young, and among other instruments, he’s especially proficient with the trumpet and the guitar. He’s been hard at work recording his currently untitled album at Recordings and Sounds by Chris Beaubien, and this is a track from said album entitled “Cosmos Calling”. Blending together his smooth, relaxed vocals with a very ambient sound, he’s brought something to the local scene that hasn’t been around for a long time, and he’s ready to share his music with the world. Here are a few links to some places his music has been posted, and a link to the recording studio his music is being recorded at:

Cranked. Heavy. Melodic. These are just some of the words that have been used to describe Toronto’s BREACHED. Creating an alluring blend of melodious, metal-tinged rock ‘n roll, it didn’t take long for Breached to start winning over fans with their live shows and 2011's five-song self titled EP. The band’s tight harmonies and nail-hitting screams combined with overdriven guitars, intricate tempos and powerful lyrics provide a unique blend that audiences can’t seem to get enough of. To satisfy that appetite Breached have recently released their follow up acoustic EP titled 'Revolution Sessions' that features five unplugged tracks, four originals from their debut EP along with a cover of Alice In Chains song 'No Excuses'.

In support of the acoustic release, the rockers have unleashed a second music video 'Happy?' to follow their first video 'Time', which can be viewed at the following links below.
