Shred-metal adventurers BLESSED BY A BROKEN HEART are charging forth with a new glam-tastic tour de force called “Feel the Power” on January 24 via EMI / Tooth & Nail.
This metal buzz band is making its debut on Tooth & Nail Records after a fruitful stint on Century Media. Important to note for everyone who jumped on board during the band’s first two albums is the fact that “Feel the Power” is an album of reinvention. There are new band members, a new sound and a new motivation to melt every last face with an obscene amount of metal goodness. In lieu of the standard metalcore trappings, listeners will now find BLESSED embracing their true loves of more traditional metal and hard rock. Rather than trying to capitalize on the sound du jour, BBABH are carving out a niche of their own by looking back and embracing the still-relevant, yet largely MIA, shred metal of the past.

“Feel the Power” is an album of pulse-raising, headband-inducing, ’80s-influenced rock that is legitimately refreshing in a hard rock scene dominated by clones. So throw your fist in the air, turn up the speakers, grab an ice-pack to relieve your soon-to-be-sore neck and get ready to rock. Hard.



Droning On

The world came to a halt in 2020, but London-based Drones trudged on, giving a voice to the hurt that circulates with (or without) a pandemic: "You shouldn’t underestimate the power of writing things down or literally speaking them out loud, which I’m learning. I’m glad I made these songs, no matter how personal they are."
