Last year was an insanely great year for Myrath, the band amazed international audiences with their music. They released the album Shehili, a beautiful collection of powerful metal choruses set against a backdrop of Middle Eastern melodies. Now in 2020, they’re back with their first-ever live album for what is set to be the beginning of an extremely bright future for the group.
Live In Carthage includes striking live recordings of the best songs from past Myrath albums and features ‘Believer,’ ‘Dance,’ ‘Get Your Freedom Back,’ and ‘Endure the Silence.’ The songs on the album showcase the rhythmic, uplifting melodies and compelling lyrics. The live video material transports the viewer into an enchanting setting with magnificent stage decorations and unforgettable performances.

Brass Against has made a big name for themselves with their incredible covers! However, they have recently announced that they have their EP coming out and we’re so stoked! The Brass Against EP is their first collection of original works, and we cannot WAIT to see what they have in store for us!
Speaking about the EP vocalist Sophia Urista says, “Brass Against relies on the dedicated individualism of our members to do what we do. Therefore, we embrace everyone’s freedom of speech and expression, regardless of our differences. While we believe that anger, questioning authority, & fighting for freedom are vitally meaningful ways of expressing ourselves in society, we also hope to portray the absolute importance of acceptance, vulnerability, togetherness, excellence, curiosity & love. When our fans hear the new EP we want them to, ultimately, feel a connection (through our stories) to the strength within themselves, and thereby, those around them.”
The EP is set for release on April 10, and we will be back with our review for sure!
