About the album „Habits“
1. Egotism | 2. Arrogance | 3. Envy | 4. Hypocrisy | 5. Collectivism | 6. Fear | 7. Faith
Mankind’s greatest danger comes from itself: The story of the 2nd INFERNOTION album ties in
with the result of an Unholy Insemination (described at the debut album). Plagued by a recurring
vision the progeny of the witch strikes out to find its own roots. This search leads through 7 of the
most harmful habits, whose real potential awakes when leaders and followers encounter. The bitter
truth behind this mission: Revealing these habits has unleashed the evil incarnate. It is in all of us…
Tracklist & Cover
1. Revelation
2. Center of the World
3. Waiting for Nemesis
4. Viscious Wishes
5. Master of Hypocrites
6. Uniform Will
7. Defective Instinct
8. Profit for the Prophet
9. Evil Incarnate
Built on the ruins of a rotten society, INFERNOTION is the embodiment of resignation and
frustration. However, the songs are more than pure raging grimness and decadent stupidity. What
you hear is intense emotion, which is generated by having a close look at this sick place where we
are living a.k.a. planet earth. But even the music of INFERNOTION is exposed to human abyss:
No one can escape. The madness is uncontrollable and all around us. You have to abandon.

Baleful Creed from Belfast, Northern Ireland, started in early 2009 when Fin and John got together to play some cover tunes, just to blow the dust off the old guitars and amps. The covers didn’t last too long through with Fin starting to write some original material to try out instead. Knowing John was a huge fan of Black Sabbath, Danzig and Fireball Ministry, they became the core influences as the pair worked on the fledgling songs. The goal – to create head nodding, foot tapping chunky riffage with powerful vocal lines.
The debut EP – ‘Killing Time’ surfaced at the tail end of 2009 before a change in recording studio and working with Neal Calderwood in Manor Park, lead to the sonically improved follow up EP’s – ‘Buried Beneath’ in late 2011 and 2012’s simply titled ‘III’ EP. At this stage, all three EP’s were only available on the band’s Bandcamp digital online store.
With increasing interest from fans both online and at gigs asking for a hard copy CD, the band took the decision to merge the last two Manor Park EP’s, remix and remaster them into a full debut album for final release on CD. The self-titled debut album was delivered making a stand that this is Baleful Creed! It packs in the head nodding tunes with a huge guitar tone, the whiskey soaked bluesy vocals backed by powerful bass and drums. Throwing in other influences from Alice In Chains, Soundgarden and Kyuss – Baleful Creed were intent on hitting audiences with a huge sounding Hard / Stoner Rock – dare we say ‘Heavy Grunge’ assault. The CD album was released on 29 December 2013.
The second half of 2014 saw both Davy and Dave revamp the engine room of the band. Baleful Creed were back out firing on all cylinders touring on the back of the debut album delivering the BC tunes in fired up performances, and working towards building a new set of songs for the next album. Writing and recording in sessions each quarter over the 2016 year – the band are proud to announce the arrival of ‘Seismic Shifter’, released on 6 June 2017. Naturally the band returned to Manor Park Studios to capture their huge sound. ‘Seismic Shifter’ develops the BC sound with new found deep groove and a darker energy that will leave you with that ‘Hell Yeah!’ feeling!
The band have experienced many highs along the way, being humbled how their tunes have spread across rock stations from initially Northern Irish DJ’s to around the world. They have featured in international interviews and reviews in magazine such as Powerplay and Fireworks. A real highlight was playing as support to Bill Steer’s (from Carcass) blues rock power trio ‘Firebird’ in Belfast. Getting to grace the stage in the incredible Mandela Hall venue, Belfast as support to the American Ronnie James Dio tribute – ‘Rising’. Another goal is to return to the UK mainland, following their debut offshore gigs as finalists in the Hard Rock Hell – Highway to Hell 4 in Glasgow, and debut full gig as part of Wildfire Festival 2016 also in Scotland. Baleful Creed are the only band to be Top Ten finalists in two TBFM Factors (2012 and 2014) – beating off hundreds of other bands in tightly fought competitions. The only regrets by the band are not getting the chance to play their old favourite rock venue, the Rosetta Bar in Belfast was has sadly closed.

Pablo Mercedes: Devil And God. Una actitud. @rabidapparel @only_rock_radio

El Rock n roll, en todas sus variantes es una actitud. Una forma de entender la vida y de disfrutarla. “Vive rápido, muere joven y deja un bonito cadáver” es una de las máximas que se ha escuchado sobre el tema. Por suerte, algunos no la cumplen a rajatabla aunque si hacen lo que les da la gana después de muchos años. Pablo Mercedes es uno de ellos y siguen en la brecha tras una dilatada experiencia.

“Devil and God” es el resultado de ello. Un trabajo que rezuma Rock en todas sus canciones y con el que te apetece tirar millas con el coche mientras lo escuchas, disfrutarlo con una cerveza en la mano y un buen grupo de amigos o en la soledad del sofá.

Puro Rock. Una actitud.

Heroes Don’t Ask Why is a Finnish metal band formed in 2015. In Spring 2016 the line-up was finished in its current form with drummer Kimmo Puhakka taking his place behind the drum kit and the music that followed was melodic divorce metal with a rock attitude. All things advanced rapidly and they released their first self-titled six song album in December 2016, with a new album scheduled for early 2018.

Twin-guitar attack by cousins Jussi Pajunpää and Matias Kaunisvesi is both aggressive and in the next moment mellow with a melancholic bluesy flow of notes; their music shows a clear hint of Scandinavian metal roots but with added quest for tender guitar work.

Album was recorded, mixed & mastered at Watercastle Studio in Punkalaidun, Finland during 2016 by Arttu Sarvanne. Cover art designed by Terje Tiilikka.

Once upon a time, a group of veteran touring players and studio musicians
decided to get together for a jam session, making the kind of music that they
liked, treating soul, funk and blues like traditions as opposed to outdated
genres. Over time, these jam sessions turned into rehearsals, the opportunity
for gigs came about and a band was born.
Need to get back into the groove of life? The GroovaLottos are your ticket getting
phunked up! The GroovaLottos are a powerhouse soul-funk-blues band, said to
play with their souls instead of their hands. All having grown up mentored by and
playing with a who’s who of classic soul, funk and blues legends; The GroovaLottos
are keepers of a musical tradition and legacy, rich with storytelling and infectious
grooves. Incredible music and wild senses of humor make them one of the most
entertaining bands around.
The GroovaLottos are comprised of Eddie Ray Johnson (Cherokee & Choctaw),
drums and vocals; Mwalim Daphunkee Professor (Mashpee Wampanoag),
keyboards and vocals; and Richard Johnson, bass, and child prodigy percussionist
and MC, The Z.Y.G.(Mashpee Wampanoag). Their music is a exploration and
celebration of the merge between eastern First Nations and West African musical
forms that became the blues and funk.
A high-energy fellowship of life-long musical journeymen on a mission to unlock
the spirit and the soul; by 19, Eddie Ray was on a three-year national tour,
playing for the likes of Rufus Thomas and Wilson Pickett. Before age 14, Mwalim
performed at Carnegie Hall and by 16, was one of the youngest session players in
EMI Records history. Also having performed at Carnegie Hall by age 15, Richard
has been and remains a very sought after bass player by touring and recording
Gospel, Jazz and R&B artists throughout the East Coast. A gifted jazz-fusion
drummer The Z.Y.G. first headlined at the Boston Jazz Fest in 2015 at age 12 and
made his debut as an MC on an underground mixtape by TMK Squad. He is also
featured on the anti-opioid anthem “Flippin’” by the Soul Poet’s Syndicate.
Their debut single “Do You Mind (IfWeDanceWitYoDates)?” premiered on the
syndicated “Direct From Muscle Shoals” radio show in March of 2016 and
remained in the top ten of the Indie Blues charts for 41 weeks. A completely selfcontained
songwriting, performance and production unit, it’s the goals of The
GroovaLottos to keep making music for their growing fan base as well as write and
produce for other soul, blues and jam band artists.
In April of 2017 they opened the Gathering Of Nations Powwow, playing in the
arena and performing in front of 48,000 people live. Their debut album, “Ask Yo’
Mama” was released shortly after that and has been appearing on the Jam Band,
Indie Blues and Classic Soul Charts ever since. The GroovaLottos are available for
tours, festivals, and private events as well as lectures, workshops and residencies.

For Swedish singer-songwriter act ‘a strAnger’, music has always been an eclectic undertaking.
Starting out playing in bands ranging from thrash, to heavy rock to grunge and punk-rock, while at
the same time honing his acoustic skills on his own and appreciating a wide range of other musical
styles; ‘a strAnger’ does not worry much about genres.
Being influenced by a wide array of music based on electric-, electronic- and acoustic instruments
spanning various decades, it is quite natural to use them all as compliments to each other in his
music as he sees fit.
Lyrically ‘a strAnger’ songs are in many ways a social commentary or reflection, both on things
unfolding in close proximity and in the distance.
7 years was spent in China during the first decade of the 21st century, exploring and taking part in
the emerging rock scence, as a solo artist and with his heavy rock outfit “The Roadkills”, but also
performing with various international constellations – consisting of anything from jazz musicians to
dj’s. This musical journey took him to festivals, events, rock clubs, dance clubs and outdoor stages all
over mainland China and to Taiwan.
With “The Roadkills” 2 EPs were recorded, and after having moved back to Sweden he released the
solo album “Volatility” in 2010. In 2012 the single “Enough said” was released.
The last couple of years have been alot about finding a path for music in Sweden and the West,
coming back from the dynamics of China. And finding a path in the changing landscape of music.
Which in turn impacts the way to release music, as well as finding a balance between where and
‘a strAnger’ is delighted to finally be sharing the fruit the last couple of years’ hard work with his new
collection of songs “Insatiable”, which is being released on a song-by-song basis throughout the
course of 2016-2017.

Singer-SongwriterMY LONG BIO 2017

Music is the dream of my life. I’m an independent artist who supports all the costs of recording, producing and distributing my own music. I work in the production department of a renowned company that produces organic food. I started playing acoustic guitar at the age of 15.

My musical and cultural background in general, have always covered the Anglo-Saxon world and in particular the culture and music of the United States and Great Britain. I have a profound knowledge of English and American literature and have always been fond of Celtic music, country and folk. My myths from a very young age were Woodie Guthrie, Jim Croce and Bob Dylan, the singers of the vast prairies of North America. Other artists who have strongly influenced my music world are John Denver, Neil Young, Johnny Cash, and all of West Coast’s Artists like Crosby Still Nash and Young, Eagles and America.

After obtaining an accountant diploma I was called to work in my family’s company. This made my teenage art project even more complicated. At the age of 25 I stopped playing and I devoted myself entirely to the business that absorbed all my energy.

With time I started playing again with no great ambition, but as my passion had never faded in 2007 I took my Takamine F25 and started playing again, after so many years and so much rust, it was not easy but from that moment on I never stopped.
Writing has always been something I have never abandoned, I have always written about everything, articles for local newspapers, reviews for magazines specializing in my business, poetry and short novels.

Over the years, I have embarked on a journey of inner rediscovery and meditation that has led me to a deep awareness of myself and my potential, and from that moment on, my dream was reborn. A few years ago I met a person who changed my life, it was a dejavu that set my feelings free.

For Elena I wrote my first song followed by many others dedicated to her. All those who have listened to them have appreciated innovative melodies, vibrant lyrics, and the intense emotions they arouse. This awareness gave me more confidence and encouraged me to continue. So I started seeing artists and musicians, going to recording companies hoping to get somehow noticed in the Italian musical artistic arens. I have been trying to emerge as a songwriter for 5 years, but despite the hard work I have not come to anything concrete.

I have always loved studying, especially scientific subjects and languages. I am fortunate enough to know English correctly, and this has allowed me to write and record songs in English too. I am pleased to know that the Gotha of Italian music listened to my pieces but despite that I had to change my commercial strategy. In January 2017 I decided to address the Anglo-Saxon market by pointing to all the English-speaking countries: United States, Canada, Great Britain, Ireland, Australia, South Africa etc.



I’ve implemented my Facebook and Twitter accounts; with Twitter in particular, I had an exponential growth from a few dozen followers to the current 20,000. This growth has allowed me to know people in the field, especially those interested in my music. The American music world is not comparable to ours. In particular, fans believe in emerging artists who are supported and promoted in every way. Thanks to these people, who I consider to be true long distance friends, I have managed to make myself known in private environments where I have found great consensus.

Another idea was to join ReverbNation, the world’s largest emerging artists platform that offered me all the tools to get more visibility and be contacted by top-level artists and record labels. In February 2017 my first single “Sparkling Dreams” was released, which was broadcast by some major American radio websites such as Lonely Oak Radio and C.Y.D. Radio.

On August 13, 2017, the song “ELENA on CDBaby featured on 150 Digital Distributors in 200 countries around the world, a song I am expecting much from.” ELENA “is a cool, danceable song where besides sexy and captivating lyrics they are very interesting sounds and a very high level arrangement. The official video has also been released on YouTube and a radio campaign will start in the United States, Canada and the UK. Another single is expected to be released by the end of the year and a full EP or full album by spring 2018. Today Elena, my partner in life, is also my collaborator in writing the lyrics and is back vocalist in the songs we write, great added value to the beauty of our relationship.

A native of Castleblayney Co Monaghan Ireland, Jim McHugh’s music is rooted in the worlds of Atmospheric Folk and Melodic Indie.

The roots of this original music stretch back to Jim’s time performing and writing for many years with his band The Mandalas, previously known as Unaware.  In late 2016, Jim drew on his musical past and more recent experiences to put together an album of 12 new songs.  The songs flow through Indie and Up-Tempo Folk Rock to slower heart wrenching ballads.

The 12-track album has its launch in 2017 and features McHugh on vocals/guitars/piano. He has also enlisted his old band mate and friend James ‘Butch’McNeill on drums and former Speedking bass player Paul McCabe. The album was co-produced, mixed and mastered by the singer/songwriter Ben Reel at his new studio in Armagh.
