Australia’s award winning powercore-metal pioneers A BREACH OF SILENCE have premiered a new music video for ‘Falling Away’. This is the first video from their upcoming third studio album entitled ‘Secrets’. ‘Falling Away’ takes on the controversial perception of a “value gap” occurring within the music industry while tackling the issue head-on and stressing the importance of subscription-based business models over ad-based streaming, for all creators of music… regardless of genre. Check out Falling Away right here.
“We did this clip because there is a huge value gap for artists and labels in the music industry right now and it needs to be fixed” states guitarist Mat Cosgrove. “Best-case scenario, a 12-song album needs to be streamed about 125 times (1,500 total streams) on a subscription-based plan to equal the sale of an album. Our label is fully transparent with us, we see every transaction pertaining to our catalog and we get paid. The problem is that the revenue generated by free, advertising-based business models is fractions of that received from subscription models. If musicians aren’t fairly compensated for their music, then they eventually stop being musicians and are forced to choose other professions that are more profitable.”
Vocalist Rhys Flannery continues, “A subscription on Spotify (for example) is available for LESS than the cost of a six pack of beer, and that gets me unlimited music from all my favorite bands! We recognize that people don’t want to buy CDs or even download albums anymore, and that’s fine – people should consume music the way they want. All we’re asking of people is to subscribe to whatever service they prefer, because free streaming simply cannot sustain music creators OR the streaming services over the long-haul.”
‘Secrets’ was produced by Fredrik Nordstrom (Bring Me the Horizon, Arch Enemy, In Flames) and mixed by Henrik Udd at Studio Fredman. It will be released worldwide via Eclipse Records on February 24, 2017.
The band’s previous album ‘The Darkest Road’ debuted on the iTunes metal chart at #1 in Australia, and at #20 on AIRA’s 100% Independent chart. Dozens of music blogs and media publications placed it in their Best of 2014 lists too.
‘Secrets’ is already available for pre-order via iTunes and Amazon. Either option comes with the songs “Falling Away”, “Secrets”, and “Nightcrawler” as instant grat tracks! The album is also available for pre-order via Google Play. Additional options and information about Secrets will be forthcoming at Eclipse Records. For more information on A BREACH OF SILENCE including upcoming tour announcements, please visit them on Facebook, Twitter, and Eclipse Records.
Metalizer records and Darkside Entertainment/ Darkside Riding Artist Corners of Sanctuary have released an all new, original Holiday single just in time for the season. The song, “That Feeling We Know,’ is being made available as a FREE download exclusively on the band’s website.
“We love this time of year… and what better way to express that sentiment than through music,” said Mick Michaels, COS founder and guitarist.
Over the past several years, the band has released a number of Holiday tracks to celebrate the season. “I don’t know if we will do it every year, but it felt like the thing to do this year. Besides, we always have a great time doing it… so that counts for something,” added Michaels.
In conjunction with the single’s release, Corners of Sanctuary has partnered with the master craft brewers at Tuned Up Brewing Company in their home state of Pennsylvania to create a signature line of flavored beers. The line kicks off with a limited time seasonal blend called “Merry Metal Holiday Cheer.” “Tuned Up is very excited to be working with Corners of Sanctuary in creating a line of special signature flavored craft beers,” said the company’s co-owner Jeremy M Burke. “We are sure their fans will not be disappointed!” Burke added.
The line continues in 2017 with “Wild Card,” a dark-wheat, light-bodied brew named after the band’s 2012 song. “Surely this blend will make everyone ante up,” joked lead singer Frankie Cross.
“We are extremely proud to partner with a local micro brewing company that represents our culture and of course our taste in beer. This holiday brew is coming down on you. Have a very Merry Holiday and a Hoppy New Year as well,” said bassist James Pera.
This signature COS line of craft beers are available exclusively through the brewing company. All inquires and ordering can be made directly by contacting Tuned Up Brewing or by visiting the company’s Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/tunedupbrewing/?fref=ts

Veteran Rock Musician RON MARKS, Shares Career Highlights, as well as Current and Future Projects, such as his Latest Release SOUR PUP.MARKS heads the Diverse Rock Project SUBSONIC, and also well known for lending his abilities as guitar virtuoso for the Legendary European Heavy Metal Group CELTIC FROST. Check out the interview below.
Ron Marks is a third-generation musician and composer. He began playing drums at age five and guitar at fifteen, which inspired him to compose original works. A home recording studio provided the creative forum necessary to develop and record more than 500 original and cover tracks.
Ron became a member of the legendary Swiss band Celtic Frost, as lead guitarist and co-writer. He performed U.K. and U.S. tours in support of C.F.’s Into The Pandemonium release, and helped co-write and record Vanity/Nemesis in Berlin. These sessions provided rare opportunities to witness the fall of Communist rule in East Berlin. Vivid recounting and photos are included within Tom Fischer’s book, Are You Morbid?(Into The Pandemonium Of Celtic Frost).
Fulfilling a years-long aspiration, Ron founded Subsonic in 2000. This effort has realized six studio album releases (Super-Vel, No Such Soul, Blood Groove, Honeycomb, Mach Ten and Hell’s Half). Three music videos (Dream American, A Day Late and Fix) have been shot as well. Subsonic explores irreverent social visions and affirms how satire eclipses doctrine. No Such Soul was recognized in 2005 with preliminary Grammy Award nominations for Best Rock Album and Best Hard Rock Performance for the track Dream American.
In addition to the Subsonic catalog, more than 100 tracks are offered for hire to film, television, radio and internet media industries. Producing fellow artists’ works is also of great interest. Ron’s book, Don’t Miss One, is an introspective telling about the life of a journeyman musician.
