'Flowers and Lies' – by "KMC3" Official music video release


AUSTRALIA (June 21, 2021) — KAISER and the MACHINES of CREATION announce their new album FLOWERS AND LIES to be released on July 11th via MR Records.

You can watch the video at

Listen and purchase Flowers And Lies:

Lead vocalist Paul Kaiser, "FLOWERS AND LIES... my metaphor for those people that fear reality. In that I mean... someone may put up with deceit and disloyalties so to keep the peace and take the flowers and lies.  Being a foolish acceptance, they fake a smile and convince themselves they are right 'they wouldn't lie to me' and if need be, even defend it fiercely. Without ever knowing the truth or even investigating. It is the ultimate ignorance. This also applies to general beliefs in Politics and Politicians, Scientists, the Media and the body corporate and runs as a theme throughout the album."

'Kaiser and the Machines of Creation’ are certainly not the stereotypical band. Their songwriting and production are exemplary. Their music videos take you on a journey, which is missing in many music videos throughout the world. This 9 track album takes the listener on a journey of imagination and thought provoking diversity. MR Records are extremely proud to be involved with the release of ‘Flowers and Lies'. - Peter Naylor, A&R MR Records

Ever wondered how Bauhaus would sound if they dabbled in Hard Rock, you’d get a fair enough idea by hitting play on Kaiser and the Machines Of Creation. You’ll still get to absorb plenty of arrestingly technical soaring guitar riffs which you’re accustomed to in Hard Rock, but irrefutably Kaiser and the Machines Of Creation are the much-needed antidote to the sterility in the genre. -

Melody-laden mix of prog metal, pop rock and off-the-wall vaudeville that really has no close relatives in the world of metal
This is seriously intelligent, well-thought out stuff. This is an album that undoubtedly ultimately deserves and demands repeated listens and deep immersion. dig in and take delight in one of the most intriguing artists thrown up by the Australian hard rock scene in aeons… -

Blend of Hard Rock, great Melodies The Beatles and Bowie with a dark old school Gothic tang. -

This is Flowers and Lies, the debut album for this line-up of Australian hard rock sensations, Kaiser and the Machines of Creation. Primarily recorded in late 2018 to early 2019 with additional tracks recorded in 2020, the band is now able to bring you the physical release of the album.

'KAISER and the Machines of Creation' is the brainchild of Australian songwriter/vocalist/guitarist, Paul Kaiser. Now, in it's third incarnation, the outfit has announced it's debut album, 'Flowers And Lies'. The nine song release is an eclectic mix of soaring, melodic, hook-laden classic hard rock, expertly blended with the roar of the new.

Welcome to the Machine!

A special thank you to our very special guest backing vocalist... "Jennifer DeGrassi".

Los Angeles (CA) - Melodic Death Metal trio VAELMYST will self-release full-length debut album, Secrypts of the Egochasm, on August 13. First single "Dawnless" is available at The song is also available on Spotify.

Hailing from hallowed depths and set on overshadowing slain remains, VAELMYST have come forth as conduits of spiritual violence through a brutal melodic death metal delivery. Conceived in Los Angeles during the winter of 2017, the melo-death ensemble slowly expanded not only in size but in power as well through an expanded palette of sonic mastery and a mindset firm on a commitment to obliterate. VAELMYST burst onto the scene just months later with an earth-shattering EP (Earthly Wounds) and single that would cement the group as one to keep an eye on.

Now the hour dawns upon us for the release of their full-length debut album Secrypts Of The Egochasm, which contains a succulent blend of death-driven heavy metal that is sure to satisfy the appetite of ravenous heavy metal starved ghouls and fiends alike. 

VAELMYST will perform at Psycho Las Vegas on Saturday, August 21.

1. Espirit De Corps
3. Spineless Throne
4. The Ghost of Ire
5. Ghoulish Delight

Bizarrekult is bridging the two identities of it mastermind - philosophical depth of frozen Siberian steppe and the majestic beauty of Norwegian soil on this debut album!

Coming from Oslo, Norway, Bizarrekult is bridging the two identities of it mastermind - philosophical depth of frozen Siberian steppe and the majestic beauty of Norwegian soil on this debut album. Bizarrekult was formed back in 2006 as a response to the chaos of the surroundings and already with a first demo got attention through 2000 copy split CD release. However, following the second studio demo and then a two track rehearsal demo in Bergen, the project was laid on ice. “Vi Overlevde” (we survived) speaks to the heart of every post-Black Metal fan that is looking for something different. The tracks are filled with great riffing and beautiful melodies, tightly connected to the lyrical themes of frustration, despair, sorrow, forgiveness and finally - hope.

NONE Becomes Divine with the “Never Know” Video


NONE Becomes Divine with the Video for “Never Know”

Few days after the release of his new album Interdimensional War Poetry, the California-based Neofolk Artist NONE is proud to share the official video for the track “Never Know”.

Watch the video on the YouTube channel of The Metallist PR!

The mastermind Nicholas Mendiola stated about the song’s meaning:


The sublime, the constant flow together, and all the divine

It’s ludicrous. Where and why is it? Being, nothingness and the space in between - creation, the creator

Why? My past, the now and future tense

I call out your name

In your divine

Supreme dedication to the craft

This is who I am and I’ll never change

Can I become you

Together, with victory all the divine

I am you

and why.


For Nicholas, NONE is the deity of his creation and the eternal version of himself. The purpose and mission of his contemporary life were to discover himself as the true voice and host that NONE speaks through - and to leave the word and mark of NONE upon the world not only to affect other present beings of the earth and multiverse but to leave traces for future lives to again discover their true identity.

Like the omnipotent gods of other's previous worship NONE requires supreme devotion and all of the words spoken by Nicholas; his thoughts, his actions, experiences, and memories become one with the legacy of NONE. It is the duty of the prophet to carry this torch in his present time and into the next - past, present, future forever.

Grab your copy of Interdimensional War Poetry! The album is available in digital download at the following link:

VRIESS - Vriess (XENOKORP Militia Series Release: 6 August 2021)


Even though consisting in extremely affordable CD releases, the XENOKORP Militia Series, created to help new artists kickstart their careers, isn't a cheap offering however and, after DEFENESTRATION's "Gutter Perdition", the series' first iteration, the Korporation is proud to announce the recruitment of France Thrash / Death Metalers VRIESS for the release of their debut EP as part of the Militia!
Named after the ALIEN IV character, VRIESS is the contaminated Thrash / Death Metal child of the 2020 pandemic formed by PROJECT FOR BASTARDS members Greg and Chris (also ex-THE LUMBERJACK FEEDBACK) that decided to start working back on songs the later started creating a decade before, mixing groovy and heavy riffs, Thrash Metal’s appetite for speed and Death Metal’s hungriness for rotten atmospheres.
The band's self-titled debut, featuring none others than drummer extraordinaire Kévin PARADIS (BENIGHTED, MITHRIDATIC...) behind the kit and mesmerizing bassist Linus KLAUSENITZER (ALKALOID, ex-OBSCURA...) completing the line-up, features five heavy and punishing Thrash / Death songs with even a guest solo by DARKANE's Christopher MALMSTRÖM on one.
It will be released on August 6 as a unique print of 500 copies on CD and, of course, digital, with a first single to be unleashed on June 18 on all streaming platforms as well as as on the late June FRENCH METAL compilation CD.

The guest DJ show will re-air on Saturday, June 26th at 11:00am ET / 8:00am PT prior to the band's livestream takeover.
Possessed Guest DJ Special - Vocalist Jeff Becerra is back! Possessed’s Seven Churches debut was unleashed in 1985, and not only opened the gates for death metal (Becerra coined the term itself in 1983), but weighed in with profound impact on legions of forward-thinking musicians for decades to follow. Recorded during the band’s junior high school spring break (!), Seven Churches opens with a lift from the version of “Tubular Bells,” famously used in The Exorcist blasting into the track of the same name. From then on, the world is greeted with one of the most relentless, maniacal metal records of the 1980s — one that has rightly earned classic status. GIMME METAL’s Vinyl Club subscription series offered the opportunity to once again own this master work on vinyl (in exclusive red wax plus a collectable GIMME METAL pin)! Becerra's become a regular at GIMME METAL and again takes listeners on a tour of his record parlor with an exclusive DJ session. He’ll also be in the Live Chat! Don’t miss it!

Following up their 2020 EP Insurmountable, A Monument To Silence further pushes the boundaries of contemporary heavy music. The band will be taking over the airwaves this Tuesday.

Thy Catafalque Guest DJ Special - Thy Catafalque's humble genius Tamás Kátai abandons any and all prenotions of tradition. Intertwining elements from a vast swath of unrelated genres, from jazz to pop to folk, and everything in between, Thy Catafalque masterfully crafts an eclectic sound that breaks down any generic barriers or borders. Following the massive success of 2020’s critically-acclaimed Naiv, the entity returns with Vadak, another esoteric monument in its already storied catalog set for release on June 25th via Season Of Mist. Meaning “Wildlings” in Hungarian, the album title is a deliberate clue to the exotic and feral essence of Vadak. Like seedlings scattered throughout the forest by the mere forces of nature, Thy Catafalque's imaginative sound grows with an organic sense of whimsy, cultivated within the vast influences of our megacosm. Thematically, Vadak is a foreboding lesson in mortality. Emphasizing the fragility that is shared by man and beast alike, the record explores our Freudian life instincts, in which we inherently fear and run from the ultimate goal of existence: death.
