End-time Cultists to Fund Metal Record on Kickstarter

Despite overwhelming calls from world leaders to "please listen to reason", New York prog-metal guitarist Brett Miller and Argentinian fantasy concept artist Marcelo Orsi Blanco have launched "Oath Of Dagon" - a Kickstarter project that threatens to plunge mankind into a new dark age of horror and chaos.

Already being funded by Cthulhu cultists the world over, Miller's 5th record of instrumental metal guitar is wholly inspired by the weird fiction of H.P. Lovecraft. Says Miller: "We're combining a 10 song instrumental metal record with 10 Lovecraftian paintings. The result is the journal of an artist being driven mad by his dreams, bundled with a music download card that fits into the paintings like an occult key."

When asked by U.S. presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton "why they would do such a thing", Miller and Blanco responded "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn!", at which point Mrs. Clinton was lifted screaming into the air by invisible tentacles, and quickly disemboweled.

Alt-Rock Trio 'The Reach' Reunites For 20th Anniversary Show, New Single (Denver, CO)

The band formed in 1994 in Dallas, TX, garnering major label interest and critical acclaim for the aforementioned "Closer" album. After disbanding in 1997 for all the usual reasons, drummer Tommy Watts and Craig Miller reunited briefly to record a second album, LIFT in 2003.

They are now reuniting again with bassist Dave Scott to release a new single (covers of MGMT's "Time to Pretend" and The Stranglers' "No Mercy"), along with a remastered version of LIFT, and a fully remixed and remastered 20th Anniversary Edition of Closer.

Although largely ignored in their hometown of Dallas, TX, the band has gained a passionate following over the years in Denver, CO, with the help of the owners of the Bull & Bush pub, who have spread the word about their unique sound. "The bottom line is, we were one of the better bands of the 90's, despite our lack of exposure," said Miller. "When people hear us, they agree."

The show will be this Halloween night, Saturday October 31st, and is sure to be a memorable one. "The guys at the Bull and Bush have kept our music alive, and we're pumped to bring our sound back to life in Denver," said bassist Scott. "We plan on bringing our best."

Release Dates:
LIFT (2015 remastered edition) – available now
Closer (20th Anniversary Edition) – available Oct. 20, 2015
Time to Pretend/No Mercy – available Oct. 20, 2015

MusicDish Review: Sankarshan Das Adhikari Single "The Peace Formula"

A powerful, moving and uplifting song. Sankarshan Das Adhikari is a man filled with hope and out to change the world.

His debut single The Peace Formula has an unusual, random yet cool rhythm. The rhythm and guitar melody throughout the song sometimes sounds out of place and different parts of the song contrast one another. However, this individual rhythm is actually very smart and speaks loudly of the song's message.

His contrasting rhythm represents his challenge to world leaders to implement his formula that he belies will bring unparalleled peace for all people. It is a brave move to speak through song to leaders about another path they should take. And Adhikari through his grand life experience does it well. Light hearted and fun through the music but powerful and deep through his lyrics.

Adhikari's song makes you feel happy. Although his ideas on the peace formula are larger than life and somewhat crazy, the song makes you fee joyful and reminds us that there are people in the world still actively trying to gain peace.

Sankarshan Das Adhikari is a singer/songwriter/visionary from the 60's. He has shared a stage with Jefferson Airplane in 1969 San Francisco. He has toured all the continents spreading his message of non-violence and peace.

MusicDishTV Review: Rhett May Music Video "Rich Bitch"

The ever continuing 70s vibe that is present in what seems every kind of art at the moment is at it again in this classic but ultra sexy new rock clip, Rich Bitch by Rhett May. A song not to be taken too seriously, Rich Bitch is based on the larger than life times of sexy, rich, rock n roll bad girls. Like she loves her money the rich bitch also loves her boys, her girls (perhaps both at the same time) and her swinging high life.

The spread of girls alone makes this clip fun, but adding to this is the kaleidoscope colors constantly splashed are all over the place.

The idea in Rich Bitch is simple- women having lots and lots of cash is very very sexy. Men cherish these women with absurd amounts of wealth. Usually it's men seducing women with money however for a rich bitch its the opposite way around.

An outrageous and fun sexual image portrayed by Rhett May in the songs lyrics. This video might not be for everyone particularly our new age of strong feminist thinkers and music lovers but for those looking for a good time (and guys wanting to check out hot girls) it's fun and had a cool rock n roll 70s beat.

Like how dollars are being fabulously thrown around by these rich bitch women, fun bright colored dollars signs are also being thrown around on screen for video clip effects. They move easily and effortlessly with the music create a fun and relaxed music video vibe. Possibly representing the fun nature of these women with lots of cash.

Humorously the men are treated as rich girl toys demonstration how money allows these girls to pick and chose their fun as they fancy. A simple song lyrically, however that's the point.

Born in Calcutta, India, Rhett May was influenced by The Rolling Stones, Beatles, Cream and Jimi Hendrix. He Currently lives in Austrailia
