Owl Company is a band from São Paulo, Brazil with power to burn. The band combines hard rock inﬂuences from the psychedelic 70s to the 90s with modern rage and brutality to create a sound that is fresh, aggressive, and engaging. The band has built a strong presence in São Paulo, playing all the premier venues in town. Owl Company began in 2015 and their ﬁrst single, “Condescend,” received ample radio play in their hometown and also in Rio de Janeiro. Now, the goal is to take their music to the worlds stage and become internationally known, that new music being the group’s ﬁrst full-length release ‘Horizon’. The record is set to drop in July 14th, 2017. The release of ‘Horizon’ will be followed by tours in the U.S. and Europe. The bands music alone is sure to win over fans, and once they plug in on stage their presence will send fans flocking to their style. Owl Company brings all this and more to the party, crafting memorable and melodic rock music that ripples its big riff muscles and instantly makes you want to hear more. The goal is that the new album as well as the international touring will give Owl Company the well-deserved place on the world stage and into the ears of heavy music aﬁcionados everywhere. One listen and you’ll know that Owl Company is a force of nature and will not be ignored. Continue reading →

Brazil’s WEAKLESS MACHINE have posted their new music video ‘Tarred With The Same Bush’ in preview of their upcoming debut album (title and release date to be determined). The video was recorded at Studio Black, filmed and edited by Orbit Global Art. After hearing this song WEAKLESS MACHINE is a band we are going to be keeping a close eye on. The band has a tremendous amount of thrash elements within their music. Vocalist Jonathan Carletti adds 2 dimensions of singing to this song. At times he has an aggressive harsh scream and then at other times he has more of a dialed back harsh yet melodic tone. The riffs throughout the track seem almost unfathomable that they are produced by one guitarist. Yet those thunderously heavy riffs are shredded by one man Fernando Cezar Junior. Every aspect of this song showcases each band members talents, and when you put them all together it creates on kick ass cohesive song. We fully expect their upcoming release to be filled with even more incredible riff filled goodness. Stay tuned as we will let you know once the album has a scheduled release date. Continue reading →
