Kalafina’s “Symphonia”

I first learned about this dazzling trio’s music on YouTube some time ago. Their harmony is quite admirable; I like how they compliment each other’s voice so beautifully. Kalafina has released their third album “After Eden“, which includes dramatic and theatrical musical arrangements and breathtaking songs I’ve never heard before from a Japanese rock group. Their latest single and music video has so much depth its mind blowing. “After Eden” is truly a remarkable album and if you’re into this kind of music or not, I recommend purchasing it. Check out the uplifting video for their song “Symphonia” below and tell us what you think: Continue reading “Kalafina’s “Symphonia””

Evanescence releases “What You Want”

 

It’s been a long wait, 5 years to be exact, but rock group Evanescence has returned with their highly anticipated new hard-hitting single “What You Want“. Without any bias whatsoever, I have to say that I’m loving this new sound. It’s a bit different from their symphonic style and I’m sure they’ll have some of that on their upcoming third studio album (watch the MTV clips if you haven’t), but “What You Want” is definitely heavy rock and killing it. Listen to the single below, purchase it on iTunes now, and check out the lyrics here: Continue reading “Evanescence releases “What You Want””

Within Temptation goes “Faster” in new MV

Dutch rock band Within Temptation has released the music video for their new single “Faster” online. The video starts out the same as their album trailer did, with a creepy old lady writing a letter (taken from the first short film “Mother Maiden“). The concept becomes more intriguing with the scary black and white samples, fueling your anticipation and leave you wanting more. I must say the band is looking pretty fresh and ‘rocking’ in their new video, or maybe I’ve just been missing them. Overall, the music video has a wonderful artistic direction, and I Love Sharon’s outfit as well. Anyways, without me going on and on about how cool the new video is, please check it out for yourselves below and let us know what you think:
