A supportive combination of modern electronic orchestration and solid song-craft .

Fresno’s new kid on the block, the upcoming pop sensation Omar Alhindi, has released his first national single entitled “Back To Me” off his current imprint Tyme Records. The song touches on what often happens in our own daily experiences - taking life for granted and not really appreciating our loved ones until they are gone.

With the supportive combinations of modern electronic orchestration and solid song-craft , Omar Alhindi not only allows his voice to create a tender musical mood, but he extends on that by being a true storyteller too.

What makes this “Back To Me” most compelling though, is the vitality and freshness of the music and songwriting that comes with Omar Alhindi’s overall concept. It's so compelling, I feel as if I am glimpsing upon an artist of quality that I have totally neglected, when in fact this is only Alhindi’s debut!

Alhindi’s vocals are extremely smooth and flow so effortlessly. It is beautiful and touching, without ever being forced, as he evades the normal vocal acrobatics displayed by most newcomers wanting to impress the masses. Alhindi just gets the job done, elegantly and tastefully, fully knowing that he will reach his audience by tantalizing and teasing their ears, not by downright molesting them!

omar-alhindi-400Many of today's young male artist only sing about sex (the raunchier the better). It's so nice to hear a young man sing about love, romance, and self-introspection. “Back To Me” definitely reflects a maturity and a range way beyond that of a what man of Omar Alhindi’s age and stature in the industry, should have.

If Alhindi keeps putting out music like this, it won’t be long before he makes a lasting impression in the industry and among fans.

The single, “Back To Me” is now available on iTunes and Amazon, as well as other digital providers, and the official music video will be made available to the public shortly. In the meantime you can check out “The Making Of…” video below.

Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter and producer ELERI http://videomusicstars.com/los-angeles-based-singer-songwriter-and-producer-eleri/ http://videomusicstars.com/los-angeles-based-singer-songwriter-and-producer-eleri/#comments Tue, 18 Nov 2014 20:43:56 +0000 http://videomusicstars.com/?p=9540 eleri-2-680

Eleri releases her second single “I Need the Chase” off of her upcoming album Love Cyanidation due out on February 03. The official music video is due out on December 2, 2014.

Eleri embraces contrast on her gorgeously lush full-length debut, Love Cyanidation. She remains entrenched in the classical training she received in her youth while also forging into the electronic expanse mined by mavericks such as Imogen Heap, Nine Inch Nails, Björk, and deadmau5. As a result, the Los Angeles-based singer, songwriter, and producer conjures up a seductive sound that is unequivocally her own.

Growing up in a small town just north of Chicago, Eleri immersed herself in music, taking guitar, voice, and piano lessons and frequenting Berklee College of Music summer programs. Once she moved to the City of Angels and transformed her apartment into The Canopy Studios, Love Cyanidation started to come to life with Eleri producing, engineering, and playing every instrument herself. That title encapsulates the story at its heart.

“In gold cyanidation, you have to use poison to extract this beautiful metal—gold,” she explains. “In life, our greatest pains are necessary to find our greatest pleasures, wisdom, and love. The album is about love and relationships. I replaced ‘gold’ with ‘love’ to represent that process of pain and pleasure in finding happiness.”

In early 2014, Eleri unveiled “Play Me,” a track blending her breathy delivery with a Vaudevillian spark and synth bounce that exudes a sexually charged kinetic spark. Chris Corner of IAMX (Gary Numan, Imogen Heap) directed the sultry MUSIC VIDEO for the song.

Elsewhere on Love Cyanidation, Eleri delivers a plaintive tale of unrequited love on “Butterfly” with soft acoustic guitar punctuated by her poetic lyrics as an unforgettable hook takes flight. “I Need The Chase” taps into a distinctive energy that’s as driving as it is delicate. The album culminates on the ethereal and entrancing “Wake Up Dreaming” where the electronic elements wrap and her warm vocals lead a lithe and luxurious send-off.

“I had written so many songs about my first real relationship,” she shares. “At some point you’ve got to let go and move on, which leaves you with a bittersweet feeling.”

Ultimately, Eleri’s search for love within the music will prove inspirational for anyone embarking on this journey with her. “I’d love for people to feel like they’re not alone when listening to my music,” she leaves off. “I want to shine light on that beauty and love we all have in ourselves.”

Rome Alexander Drops the Official Video for “Bring Me Back” http://videomusicstars.com/rome-alexander-drops-the-official-video-for-bring-me-back/ http://videomusicstars.com/rome-alexander-drops-the-official-video-for-bring-me-back/#comments Thu, 13 Nov 2014 17:09:49 +0000 http://videomusicstars.com/?p=9526 rome-alexander-vid-680

“Bring Me Back”  - The Video!

Rome Alexander’s one of a kind music style has been very well received and one week after the release of his previous two singles “Crush” and “This Thing We Had,” both received enthusiastic reviews from fans and have been on the Amazon Best Seller and Hot New Release charts for a period of time.   “Burn” and “Crush” also reached the iTunes Top 100 chart for New R&B releases, with “Crush” peaking at #10.

Now the 21 year-old vocalist and songwriter from Pittsburgh, Rome Alexander, has dropped the video for his latest R&B single, “Bring Me Back”. Alexander has brought an old school feel with his personality mixed into his music and this track and video is a great example of that. If you listen to the song and watch the video all the way through, you’’ will see what I mean.

A lot of "R&B" these days is not R&B but “Bring Me Back” truly falls into that genre. Rome Alexander is a talented singer. His voice is hypnotic and this track though sad in places is very sexy indeed. Put on “Bring Me Back”, grab a bottle of quality wine and call-up some good company and you have a great recipe for an awesome night

Death Industry: “Romancing The Dead” -Delivers perfect intensity http://videomusicstars.com/death-industry-romancing-the-dead-delivers-perfect-intensity/ http://videomusicstars.com/death-industry-romancing-the-dead-delivers-perfect-intensity/#comments Wed, 12 Nov 2014 11:47:34 +0000 http://videomusicstars.com/?p=9523 death-industry-rtd-680

An unpredictable listening experience!

Death Industry is a mixture of electro, hard rock, metal, and industrial. The sole member Marcel Pyron, born in Germany, writes all lyrics, plays all instruments, and does all the production. Marcel use an Ibanez sound gear bass, Galveston and Ibanez guitar, Behringer C-1 Condenser Microphone, Alesis Q25 Midi keyboard, and a Microkorg synth keyboard. His principle Software consists of: Sony Acid 7.0, FL Studio 10, Sonivox, Waves, and many other plugins.

About a month ago we reviewed Death Industry’s single , “Wearing Scar Tissue”, a sizzling amalgamation of industrial, electro and metal, based off great song crafts consisting of heavy riffs, pulsing electronic beats and textures, and energetic, non-robotic drumming.

All-round, Death Industry’s tracks are stellar; from start to finish it is a thoroughly enjoyable listen. A few major things that set Marcel Pyron and his Death Industry project apart from a lot of other bands, is the song structure and elements added.

I am a very big fan of thinking outside the box, and I love a band that will deviate from standard song structures.  Throughout the songs, from “Romancing The Dead” and “So Far Away” to “Process Of Elimination”, Death Industry throws curveball after curveball. Just when you think you know where a song is going, he moves on to something else. This makes the songs a very interesting and unpredictable listening experience, and I enjoy that very much.

My next major point is the elements added. Pretty much every song has memorable electronic elements in it, and they are used very well. The instrumentation and electronics blend amazingly well, and they make these songs stand out from other bands with synths, computers and guitars.

All of these elements are ever-present in the standout track – “Romancing The Dead”, a sweeping epic of high-tech industrial madness. On this track, Death Industry delivers perfect intensity and experiments with plenty of gizmos to boot, that will envelop your mind into a trance with its hypnotic riffs and beats.

Death Industry never truly repeats a sound, and thankfully so. Instead, his taken what he has learned and expanded on it, experimented, torn it apart, and rebuilt it into something always better than before. And this is why he never ceases to impress us. So it's not just the ear-grinding, electro-industrial sound of the tracks, but there is something new, something more complex, something greater. This mind-blowing, ass-kicking music, ferociously executed!

This music is not meant for those with short attention spans who want sweet melody and cute chord progressions. It's meant for those who want it loud, hard, and most of all absorbing. This is supposed to beat you up and wear you down; exactly what Death Industry does

Marcel Pyron aka Death Industry is compelling listening and bashes you in the head with his musical mantra. If you’re new to the industrial metal genre of music, all I can say is that this is essential in your collection. Truly epic and memorable, instrumental killer jams, that need to be cranked up all the way!

Sarantos: “Let’s Call It Love” is a culmination of subtlety, sophistication, coolness, sublime passion, and warmth in music. http://videomusicstars.com/sarantos-lets-call-it-love-is-a-culmination-of-subtlety-sophistication-coolness-sublime-passion-and-warmth-in-music/ http://videomusicstars.com/sarantos-lets-call-it-love-is-a-culmination-of-subtlety-sophistication-coolness-sublime-passion-and-warmth-in-music/#comments Mon, 10 Nov 2014 16:09:12 +0000 http://videomusicstars.com/?p=9518 sarantos-lcil-680

Successfully releasing yet another song from his upcoming debut album, Sarantos Melogia continues to juggle his busy schedule with radio interviews, band rehearsals and booking live performances in the states.

Not too long ago, Sarantos lost his devoted father, after a hard-fought battle to lung cancer. This experience had a major impact on Sarantos’ life, enabling him to overcome many obstacles that may pass. The Chicago singer has since been driven to remain strong and positive not just for himself but for his friends & fans.

"Going through life's hardships has given me the willpower to write songs and to sing from the heart," says Sarantos. "I wouldn't have had the passion to strive for my dreams if it wasn't for my loving family. I know my father would have been very proud of me."

Sarantos is at his best when his complex melodic ideas are designed to slowly seep into your sub-conscious in such a way that one line like “I think I feel love, let’s call it love”, triggers immediate auditory recall of that song's lyrics and melody.

Let me be clear - Sarantos has never released a "bad" track. I just happen to prefer certain production and songwriting techniques that are present on “Let's Call It Love”. Fortunately, it also happens to be a flawless composition that is undeniably groovy.

I was at once more drawn immediately into the warmth of his unique, tender and catchy laid-back style and lyrical poetry. The excellent music gives sterling support and the beguiling rhythm is just magical. It has been wonderful to appreciate its subtleties and nuances more and more on repeated playing.

“Let's Call It Love” includes the kind of bass lines I love, where the instrument rises from its usual position of undergirding the tune, to render its own beautiful sound as if to say, "I don't just do bass, I can sing, too!"

Sarantos Melogia has consistently given us quality work over the last couple of years. This single keeps that consistency going. “Let's Call It Love” is a culmination of subtlety, sophistication, coolness, sublime passion, and warmth in music.

Successfully releasing yet another song from his upcoming debut album, Sarantos Melogia continues to juggle his busy schedule with radio interviews, band rehearsals and booking live performances in the states.

Not too long ago, Sarantos lost his devoted father, after a hard-fought battle to lung cancer. This experience had a major impact on Sarantos’ life, enabling him to overcome many obstacles that may pass. The Chicago singer has since been driven to remain strong and positive not just for himself but for his friends & fans.

"Going through life's hardships has given me the willpower to write songs and to sing from the heart," says Sarantos. "I wouldn't have had the passion to strive for my dreams if it wasn't for my loving family. I know my father would have been very proud of me."

Sarantos is at his best when his complex melodic ideas are designed to slowly seep into your sub-conscious in such a way that one line like “I think I feel love, let’s call it love”, triggers immediate auditory recall of that song's lyrics and melody.

Let me be clear - Sarantos has never released a "bad" track. I just happen to prefer certain production and songwriting techniques that are present on “Let's Call It Love”. Fortunately, it also happens to be a flawless composition that is undeniably groovy.

Dawn Of Eternity: “Guilty Deluxe” -The album expands on the band’s ability to craft beautiful music http://videomusicstars.com/dawn-of-eternity-guilty-deluxe-the-album-expands-on-the-bands-ability-to-craft-beautiful-music/ http://videomusicstars.com/dawn-of-eternity-guilty-deluxe-the-album-expands-on-the-bands-ability-to-craft-beautiful-music/#comments Thu, 06 Nov 2014 12:14:57 +0000 http://videomusicstars.com/?p=9514 dawn-of-eternity-680

NRT-Records Release Another Great Metal Album By Dawn Of Eternity

Founded by the talented singer Sara Seubert and guitar player Johannes Kittel, from the ashes of their former project, "Buried Alive", Dawn Of Eternity became known in the metal scene. After the release of their EP, "Catastrome", the band played all over Germany together with acts like Peragon, Gates of Dawn, Amorticure, Saint Astray and Eden's Decay.

At the end of their odyssey, they continued their work on the debut album, "Guilty", which was recorded in collaboration with room4Records. Being "almost done" by the end of 2013, the perfectionist, Sara Seubert, took nearly 3 more months to perfect her vocals on the album, before it was finally released in March 2014.

Right after the release, Dawn Of Eternity continued touring, with a lots of concerts in front of euphoric crowds. In October 2014 they supported the Dutch speed metal band "Lord Volutre" in the Czech Republic. Finally in October this year, Dawn of Eternity signed with the independent label NRT-Records who have re-released a deluxe version of their album “Guilty”, together with a new music video.

Dawn Of Eternity is a unique, inspiring and fresh approach to a relatively stale metal scene. The dual vocalists used in some tracks, is one of the few times I have liked this situation. The male-female, sing-growl dynamics, which can be perfectly appreciated on the track “Blind My Eyes”, create a hauntingly beautiful sound that boggles the mind – somewhere between the Devil and an Angel. Never did I ever think that a band could sound like a mix of Tori Amos meets Meshuggah, but Dawn Of Eternity accomplishes the feat.

If you like your music to be heavy and atmospheric, I can almost guarantee that “Guilty Deluxe” will not disappoint you. For those yet unfamiliar with Dawn Of Eternity -they play a style of music that sort of melds melodic death metal, hard rock and touches of Goth. One of their main strengths is Sara Seubert’s voice, which is strong, clear, high but not too high, and emotive. She could mesmerize you even if she is singing the shopping list.

“Guilty Deluxe” is one of those albums that just leave your jaw dropped in awe. Popular rock music has been so insubstantial and rehashed for the last few years that a recording of this caliber is bound to create a stir. There is not one single bad song here: they are catchy without taking that fateful plunge over the "commercial" cliff. Production is spectacular all the way through. High points are difficult to pick out because the whole album is so well-done, though "Ego", “Cut Me Loose”, “Sing For Me”, “Guilty”, “Oceans” and "Fire" are my current favorites.

“Guilty Deluxe” also counts 4 tracks from the band’s self-released Ep, “Castastrome” among its 16 tracks. The album expands on the band's ability to craft beautiful music while at the same time maintaining teamwork and dedication to their loyal fan base. Along with beautiful music that is layered, moving and quite powerful, the emotion released in just one song - the simple acoustically driven “Fire” - gives me goose-bumps every time!

Dawn Of Eternity is a band that deserves much more recognition than they receive. “Guilty Deluxe” is by far their best work and their love for the project shines through on almost every track. Musically the album is rife with richly textured melodies and effective overdriven guitar-based arrangements supplied by Sebastian Klüfer –Bass, Torsten Ossowicki –Drums, Sara Seubert –Lead Vocals and Johannes Kittel – Guitars & Backing Vocals.

Every song on the album is worth listening to, and the more you listen, the deeper you feel the music. It is quite a testament to the creativity and synergy of a band when you can listen to a song and always get something different from it. What more can I say about Dawn Of Eternity and, in particular, “Guilty Deluxe”?

Well, it's powerful, it's melodic, it's heavy, it's layered and it’s overall amazing. I'm so glad to have it in my collection!

Award Winning Anti-bullying Advocate – Torrey Mercer Releases new single Lies and Lipstick http://videomusicstars.com/award-winning-anti-bullying-advocate-torrey-mercer-releases-new-single-lies-and-lipstick/ http://videomusicstars.com/award-winning-anti-bullying-advocate-torrey-mercer-releases-new-single-lies-and-lipstick/#comments Mon, 03 Nov 2014 13:12:11 +0000 http://videomusicstars.com/?p=9511 torrey-mercer-680

Torrey Mercer is a Multi-award Winning, talented Pop Singer, Motivational Speaker, and Actress from San Diego, CA

Singer Songwriter and Anti-Bullying advocate, Torrey Mercer has released her brand new single, "Lies and Lipstick" from her upcoming EP that is due to debut sometime in 2015. The track is a co-written by Torrey Mercer and John Velasquez of Max and the Moon and produced by Barrett Slagle of ArtiSans Label. As Torrey describes, it's a song I wrote about girls.

torrey-mercer-400"I wanted to write a song like this for years, which exposes some of the ridiculous behavior that some women throw at each other and how petty it can be. You'd think it stops after high school, but in my experience, it doesn't. So the song is my satirical way of bringing the issue to life and making a point about the behavior," says Torrey.

Torrey Mercer is a firestorm, vocally and visually. She exhibits substance and purpose in her lyrics and melodic rhythm to keep you feeling her whole vibe. She definitely has a message in her music and is passionate about her decision to deliver it. On "Lies and Lipstick" she is extremely soulful and lively, over a superbly catchy, rocking beat.

"Lies and Lipstick" is absolutely single-worthy. It kind of has an old-school throwback aura, with an upbeat sound; a driven piano and bass holding out against a crunchy guitar riff. The bridge is a very memorable part of the song, as Torrey’s vocals soar across the electrifying rhythm.

"Lies and Lipstick" showcases the skills of a gifted lyricist while highlighting an unforgettable personal journey through a chronic social and cultural problem. As much as she can be a voice for the hard times, Torrey Mercer’s soulful vocals could easily be the soundtrack for the best of times too.

Simply put, everything stands out on "Lies and Lipstick", the songwriting, the performance, the arrangement and ultimately, the production. This is going to be on some serious rotation for a while and hopefully will give Torrey Mercer the mainstream exposure she so rightly deserves!
