I have talked about Canadian power metal band Unleash the Archers in cover songs, but they are primarily known for a string of pretty solid heavy metal albums, many of them concept albums to some degree. While they have had some lineup changes over the years (especially in the bass role), the one constant is lead singer Brittany Slayes (real name Brittany Hayes) of Victoria, BC.
Enough talk. Let's rock.
Metal music will never tire of Mad Max, some of the most metal movies out there.
And from a decade ago, a track from their first album.
Singer-songwriter Kina Grannis has had a rough few years. An arrest in Indonesia, a struggle with infertility, a miscarriage. But this week she put it all behind her, dropping a long-gestating new album as she awaits, speaking of gestation, the imminent birth of her first child. She even put a "bump shot" on the cover of the album. This single from the new album came out a couple weeks ago.
And from indie singer-songwriters to one of the biggest stars of the past decade or two, Adele released the first single from her next album today. And it's ... Adele. Not my favorite of her works, not my least favorite, but it is quite clearly, definitely her sound.
