Beth’s Top Ten Releases of 2020

Beth’s Top Ten Releases of 2020
By Beth Jones

Well, what a year, eh? We’ve seen some terrible things happening, and we’ve seen some positives. We’ve also seen some things that are just completely weird and crazy. But through all that has happened in the outside world, terrible, bizarre, or otherwise, one thing has stayed steadfast. The quality of music being released.

In fact, if anything, the standard has taken a massive leap up, and I have been privileged and honoured to hear what is, in my opinion, some of the best music ever laid down. It has been an incredibly difficult job to formulate a list of my favourite, but after some wailing and gnashing of teeth, I’ve got my top ten. So here it is, my ‘crème de la crème’ of this historic year.

10. Vega – Grit Your Teeth (June 2020)

After 3 months of working from home, home schooling, and watching the daily briefings, we all very much needed a feel-good album. Enter classic hard rocker’s, Vega, with their sixth studio album. Riff laden and anthem driven, this upbeat album was the perfect antidote to the Groundhog Day we found ourselves in. I mean, who doesn’t need a bit of classic, 80s/AOR inspired rock in their lives, whatever’s happening outside, right?

9. Helix – Eat, Sleep, Rock (September 2020)

As September dawned, things were starting to look slightly more positive. Mainly because the kids went back to school!! This did however mean that I had to leave Wine O’clock until after the school run! But I didn’t mind so much, because I could listen to “Eat, Sleep, Rock” in the car. My little 7-year-old rocker approved of this greatly, and now knows all the words to the opening track, ‘The Story Of Helix’.

If you’ve never experienced Helix, then you need to. Hi-octane classic rock at its best, with an injection of dry humour, from a band who’ve been kicking it for nearly half a century. If you like AC/DC, Alice Cooper, et al, then you need this album in your life.

8. Tomorrow Is Lost – Therapy (March 2020)

In March, when things were still pretty normal here in the western world, a talented young band from Newcastle, UK, released their debut album, “Therapy”. Their catchy, alt rock/metal sound is masterfully captured on this album. It has thumping beats, memorable riffs, and super vocals a plenty. They’re a combination of Evanescence, Skunk Anansie, and Paramore, and it’s very good. For such a young band, they really display a great deal of musical skill and talent in this album, with well-constructed songs, that gel well, without needing to overstate anything.

7. White Walls – Grandeur (October 2020)

One thing that this year did give use was the truly splendid European Metal Festival Alliance – a virtual festival, which saw some of Europe’s biggest festivals come together to bring the music to us, in the comfort of our own homes! It was a great weekend, which let me discover even more new music! And one of those discoveries was Romanian progressive metal band, White Walls. They were easily my band of the weekend, so discovering their third album was due for release was very exciting.

They mix progressive rhythms, with hard hitting riffs and vocals, and have been compared to the likes of Opeth and Leprous. The album is inspired by the state of the world, exploring the juxtaposition of the grandeur presented by the shiny and glamourous things in life, vs the realities of life. Very fitting for the time we’re living in, and masterfully approached by the band, too.

6. Ensiferum – Thalassic (July 2020)

Nothing says summer better than folk inspired melodic death metal, right? And if you want to fill your boots with grand, orchestrated, all conquering, theatrical metal, then there’s no better way that to do that than with Finnish aficionados, Ensiferum. “Thalassic” is a truly stunning album, centred around the theme of the sea (which they have a fair amount of in Finland, to be honest). It’s full of jiggy, bouncing tunes, epic solos, and catchy melodies, and for me, is the liveliest release of the year. I will wager good money with anyone on the fact that you cannot listen to this album without indulging in a bit of headbanging/dad dancing, even if you’re listening to it through headphones, and everyone around you thinks you’ve finally cracked! Let’s face it, Ensiferum never really make a bad album, but this one has to be one of my favourites.

5. Freddy Spera – Temper (April 2020)

Freddy Spera is an Italian/Brazilian musician, who some may know as the hugely expressive bass player from Liverpool based band, Novacrow. He’s also an extremely talented multi-instrumentalist, and music producer. His first solo EP, “Temper” was definitely my easter treat this year. I didn’t know what to expect with it, but it only took me a few bars to make up my mind that it was absolutely stunning. It’s mellow, proggy, and in places, a touch on the 90’s indie/grunge side of things. Vocally, it reminded me of a lot of Devin Townsend’s recent releases, which pleased me a great deal, as Devin is a god amongst men in my eyes! I loved this EP so much that it was actually the first one to make it on to my list for releases of the year.

4. Kamelot – I Am The Empire: Live From The 013 (August 2020)

Now we’re getting to the business end of proceedings, and this is where deciding on who got the top spot for my releases of the year got a million times tougher. So, here we go with the top four, who are all separated by the smallest of margins.

August saw the release of an epic live album from American Symphonic Metal giants, Kamelot. I’d never really listened to Kamelot before (I know, I’m a fool – you may all point and laugh) but was completely blown away by this release. “I Am The Empire: Live From The 013” is nearly 100 minutes of extravagant, indulgent, perfection. It brought me pure joy, in the shape of stunningly orchestrated compositions, with grand melodies, both new and classic, encompassing intricate harmonies, powerful rhythms, and insatiable instrumentation that fills every beat with drama and beauty. All this is topped off by the spine-tingling vocals of Tommy Karevik. And if that wasn’t enough, there are guest appearances from the likes of Alissa White-Gluz (Arch Enemy), Charlotte Wessels (Delain), Elize Ryd (Amaranthe), Lauren Hart (Once Human) and Sascha Paeth (Avantasia, Epica and more)!

3. Osyron – Foundations (July 2020)

Canada has a bit of a habit of producing some kick-ass musicians. And Symphonic Metal band, Osyron, are no exception. “Foundations” theme is a view on Canadian history, spanning topics from the country’s colonization, to the mistreatment and recognition of indigenous tribes, and the country’s participation in global warfare. It’s hard-hitting subject matter, tackled superbly, by a very talented band. There was no doubt in my mind when I heard this album that it would make it high up on my top ten of the year.

Musically, it’s symphonic and proggy in all the right places, and if you like bands such as Nightwish, Symphony X, Dream Theater, Kamelot, and Wintersun, you’re going to like this. But the real masterstroke within this release is the lyrics. They’re superb, tackling difficult subject matter with emotional integrity, and displaying real thought and depth, to create something truly awesome.

2. Wilderun – Veil Of Imagination (July 2020)

Disclaimer – this was actually a re-release because they signed to a label. But it was simply too good not to include. Wilderun are a Melodic Death Metal band from Boston, Massachusetts, who chuck more than a hint of prog, folk, and orchestral elements into the mix, in order to create their sound. “Veil Of Imagination”, their third album, took me to places that most music doesn’t reach. It’s got such a musical intelligence about it, that creates something so beautiful it’s difficult to describe.

The dynamic peaks and troughs of this album are on a vast scale, going from full on, in your face, walls of sound, to subtle and tender solitary piano, and lilting vocals, in the blink of an eye. This is less of an album of individual tracks, and more a classical work of art consisting of many movements to make up a full symphony.

I originally listened to this release back in June, to write the review for it, and instantly had it as my album of the year, without question. They even managed to break maths, by scoring 11/10 from me. Simply superb. No other words are necessary.

www.facebook.com/OfficialWilderun/


1. Scardust – Strangers (October 2020)

So, as I said, for a large portion of the year I thought I had my top album pinned down in the shape of Wilderun. But then “Strangers”, the second album from Israeli progressive metal band, Scardust, happened.

This release made the impossible possible, reducing me to tears with its brilliance, and reducing my scoring system to irrelevant nonsense. It is, without question, a complete masterpiece, which my inferior words do not do justice to. It’s punchy riffs, insane vocals, equally insane solos, and orchestration that would have pleased classical renaissance composers, will, for me, remain unrivalled for a very long time. I can’t remember the last time I heard an album so complete, and so perfect. And it’s been added to the very short list of works that really hit me in the feels every time (Mozart’s Requiem, and Queen’s “Made In Heaven” are the other two).  

Music truly is the only universal language. And good music, wherever it sits in terms of genre, is a powerful force for good. And, whatever the future holds, this album will always have a very special place in my heart, because of the way it spoke to me. And, for that reason, it takes my number one spot, by a country mile.

www.facebook.com/ScardustOfficial/


To sum up, in general, this year’s been a crock of shit. But musically, this year has delivered, and then some. And it’s been joyous to have the ability to share my thoughts on this wonderful language with you. To the bands here, and all the others who didn’t make my final cut, thank you, from the bottom of my heart. And to anyone reading this, wherever you are, whatever you’re doing, take care, stay strong, and let the music play.

Tomorrow Is Lost – Therapy

Tomorrow Is Lost – Therapy
Eclipse Records
Release Date: 13/03/2020
Running Time: 35:13
Review by Beth Jones
9.5/10

Morning music chums! There’s no denying that 2020 has been a pretty sucky year so far and that it needs to get in the bin! However, lockdown has given me a chance to get my head into some great music, which is definitely a silver lining, and I can wholeheartedly say that, as far as new music goes, this year has already been pretty epic!

Today’s listening pleasure for me is “Therapy”, the debut album from Newcastle based Alternative Metal band, Tomorrow Is Lost. Relative babies in the music scene, the 5-peice formed in 2017 and have worked tirelessly since then, making a big impression and gaining acclaim. They have had some pretty big names working on this album too. It was produced by Dave Boothroyd (Phil Campbell [Motorhead], Don Broco, The Bastard Sons) at 6db Studios, and was mastered by Jon Astley (Judas Priest, The Who, The Rolling Stones) at Close To The Edge.

Now, you know me. I love a good bit of production, and right from the off, the experience and mastery of the production team is evident in this recording. It is beautifully mixed and mastered placing everything perfectly. There is plenty of bottom end and nothing sounds tinny. The drums also sound epic – no unwanted popping or ringing, and there’s a great ‘thunk’ to the bass drum and toms. This is always a benchmark for me.

Musically, Tomorrow is Lost are, for me, exciting. Every tune is catchy, well-constructed, and full. They are like a combination of Paramore and Skunk Anansie and remind me a lot of Chasing Dragons (who were great, and it makes me sad that they have called it a day). Their tunes are full of chunky guitar riffs and pumping bass lines, and the powerful but beautiful vocals of Cass King cement the whole thing together into a very pleasing listen. There is also some clever use of atmospheric samples, which add an extra layer of depth to a number of the tracks.

This is an album full of colour and life. It is the sort of album that you want to sling on in the car, wind the windows down and pump it out loud (even though this is technically against the law now apparently! Don’t break the law kids!).

Although it is hard to pick a favourite track on this album, I think ‘Hideaway’ is the one that grabbed me most. It starts with a solo bass line, then kicks into the full riff. The verses are quite staccato and stripped back, then it progresses into a pre-chorus which builds into the very catchy chorus. This theme is revisited throughout the song, which gives it a great flow. And we get the extra little gift of a powerful and heavy middle 8 section which is properly down and dirty. It’s a track full of power which compels you to move with the beat. Cracking tune.

If you like solid heavy rock/ alternative metal, with perfect vocals, then this album is going to excite you. I love it.

EMQ’s with TOMORROW IS LOST

EMQ’s with TOMORROW IS LOST

Hi everyone! Welcome to our new EMQ’s interview with Newcastle Upon Tyne, UK based Modern Rock band Tomorrow Is Lost. Huge thanks to all of them for taking part.

What is your name, what do you play, and can you tell us a little bit about the history of the band?

Cass King: I’m the vocalist with Tomorrow Is Lost. We formed the band back in early 2017, after a previous project folded. We didn’t set out with any grand master plan, but we’ve been extremely fortunate to have had some incredible opportunities come our way, and mixed in with a bit of hard work – we’re crazy proud of everything we’ve managed to achieve in the last 3 years.

Joe Mac: And I play guitar, so the band was formed in January 2017 in preparation for a music competition at the O2 academy in Newcastle. Cass and I had competed in the heats for the competition in a previous band, which disbanded a month before the final. We then found a bassist and a drummer, and had two weeks to rehearse before the competition, which was very stressful haha. Since then we have had a few line-up changes, gigged up and down the country every weekend, and met some fantastic people. The band is as solid as ever now and we all gel really well together.

Josh Fodden: I play bass AND I do NOT drive the van…I joined the band a year ago now, after waiting for my moment.

Ryan O Hara: I play guitar and joined the band 3 years ago initially to join them on stage to play a cover at a show in Bradford, but it worked well and the 2nd guitar really helped solidify the sound of the songs we had at that time. Cass & Joe asked me to join, best decision I ever made.

Marc Rush: I play drums and joined the band just over 2 years ago.

How did you come up with your band name?

Cass: We didn’t have a name to start with…but we had our first gig fast approaching in February 2017 – so we needed one, fast. We started flicking through lyric ideas, and ‘tomorrow’s lost’ kinda jumped out. So, we ran with it (apostrophe included), and it stuck from there. We dropped the apostrophe in the end, still a good shout I reckon.

What Country/Region are you from and what is the Metal/Rock scene like there?

Cass: We’re from the North of England (specifically Newcastle, Durham and York if you’re a native). Corona-aside – it’s usually pretty banging, but around the world the virus is obviously taking a real toll on the live music circuit, so we’ve just gotta hope that it recovers sooner rather than later…

What is your latest release? (Album, EP, Single, Video)

Cass: We just released our debut album “Therapy” in March this year. It’s been pretty devastating to lose some great opportunities this year due to the virus which means we haven’t been able to gig the album, but despite all this, the response to the album has been incredible – and it far surpassed our expectations.

Who have been your greatest influences?

Cass: Collectively, we have a ridiculously broad range of influences…it shouldn’t work really, but somehow it does. For “Therapy” we referenced a whole range of artists from Slipknot, The Pretty Reckless, Billie Eilish, Bring Me The Horizon, Don Broco, The 1975, Guano Apes, Calvin Harris, Michael Jackson, the list goes on and on and on. It was such a cool experience, and with the most incredible input and mentoring from Dave Boothroyd (Producer) we were really able to open ourselves up to new sounds and directions to create something that definitely holds its own identity, and we can’t wait to build on that some more for the next release.

Ryan: My greatest influences are definitely: The Darkness, Linkin Park and Creed and guitarist wise it has to be Vivian Campbell. Getting to meet and have a chat with him at Winterstorm Festival last year was mind blowing for me.

Joe: Iron Maiden is by far my favourite band. I love all three guitar players and I like to think I incorporate a little bit of each of them in my playing. They were the ones who influenced me to write guitar harmonies into some of our songs. I also love KISS, Ozzy Osbourne/Black Sabbath, and My Chemical Romance.

Marc: Mine have changed a lot over the years, beginning with heavy metal, Slipknot and Slayer, going through classic stuff like the Beatles, indie stuff like the Arctic Monkeys. Most recently I’m much more into more industrial or electronic types of rock and metal. I’m still yet to be able to sound as much like any of them as I’d want to.

Josh: I always find this to be tough to answer without creating the biggest list in the world, but definitely Jack White, most grunge music and a lot of punk music, bands like Soundgarden, Seether, Anti Flag and Misfits. And definitely Linkin Park.

What first got you into music?

Cass: I’ve always been drawn to anything creative since I was tiny. Music, singing, dancing, art, drama. My grandad was a singer and my great uncle a concert pianist…so I must get it from my mam’s side at least!

Joe: It’s always been in my life, the first song I can ever remember was Morrisey’s ‘First Of The Gang To Die’. My Dad was and still is a big fan of the Smiths/Morrisey and The Jam. He always had music on, and I’ve never known a world without it. What interests me about music and especially guitar players is how everybody can hear and create something different within a song. Like I love Johnny Marr’s lead guitar parts in ‘The Draize Train’ and pretty much all of Bruce Foxtons bass lines are unique, no one else could have done it like that.

Marc: I played music for about 5 years before I actually took any real interest in it. It was heavy metal bands like Metallica and Slipknot that first made me want to learn more.

Josh: A few things over the course of a few years when I was a kid, the biggest one is my Dad, he was a touring musician and was always gigging and playing festivals so I always saw how cool that was and wanted to be like that, another was my being a big gamer, I loved the Rockband games, they were similar to Guitar Hero and that introduced me to a lot of bands.

Ryan: The first thing that got me into rock music was seeing The Darkness ‘Growing On Me’ while watching Kerrang TV with my Dad when I was little.

If you could collaborate with a current band or musician who would it be?

Cass: Erm…I’ve been loving Poppy and her latest release…but I’ve been craving nostalgia like mad lately, so I’ve been hammering Lady Gaga, Pink, Backstreet Boys…with no shame, whatsoever.

Josh: I would love to work with Machine Gun Kelly and Travis Barker or Jack White

Marc: I dunno, probably someone electronic with less guitarists.

Ryan: I would love to do something with Avenged Sevenfold.

Joe: I’d like to collaborate with more producers, I think. So probably Romesh Dodangoda.

If you could play any festival in the world, which would you choose and why?

Cass: I think Download would be pretty cool…that’s like the holy grail of rock festivals over here isn’t it? Playing the Sophie Stage at Bloodstock would be really special as well, the Main Stage can come later…

Ryan: I’d love to play Download or Wacken Festival. Those are two big ones for me…….Oh and Bloodstock again, Sweden Rocks would be amazing as well…I think we should arrange a tour where we play festivals ALL summer long.

Josh: I would love to play Rise Above festival, which was a festival made by Shaun Morgan of Seether, great bands play there and it’s for a good cause.

Joe: Download, that would be the ultimate gig for me, just for it being the biggest rock and metal one in the UK.

Marc: Download is the one or Glastonbury as that is quite a different type of event…Or one in a nice warm country with no mud.

What’s the weirdest gift you have ever received from a fan?

Cass: I don’t think anyone’s ever given me anything?! And now you’ve got me thinking I’m mad unpopular?! Probably something I said…haha

Joe: There hasn’t really been any, just really nice and kind ones, there was a customised merch table lamp that Julie from the MT Heads MCC made for us.

Ryan: Does beer count?? That’s not weird but it is kinda awesome.

If you had one message for your fans, what would it be?

Cass: THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! It’s a plateaued saying on the grassroots circuit but still so true – that we really wouldn’t be doing this without you guys. On top of our own desire to succeed and write the best songs we can, put on the best live show possible, it is the fans that get us from A to B, show to show, they are the ones that turn up in front of a stage to sing along with us, without them, we are a Social Worker, a Brickie, a Bar Man, a Strip Joint Manager and a Delivery driver.

If you could bring one rock star back from the dead, who would it be?

Cass: Freddie Mercury. The boss man.

Marc: Paul Gray.

Ryan: Chester Bennington, probably my favourite singer off all time.

Joe: Randy Rhoads, I think his musical knowledge and ability was stripped from this world far too soon. By far the best musician there has ever been in my eyes.

Josh: This is a tough but great question, for me I’m stuck between Layne Staley, Chris Cornell or Chester Bennington.

What do you enjoy the most about being a musician? And what do you hate?

Cass: Escapism, writing, creating stuff, exploring new directions and trying new things. I hate travelling. Love being at home.

Joe: I like writing songs and coming up with new ideas, but I hate travelling. 😂

Ryan: I love the travelling and performing in a band, writing songs, recording all of it. One thing I dislike about it all is loading the van, I can never be bothered after a show.

Marc: Performing, and just about everything else, even being in a van with this lot for days at a time is not THAT bad.

Josh: Playing a great show In front of a great audience is the best feeling in the world, no doubt, writing and recording is fun, but the live show is heaven to me. The worst bit for me is the travelling, I love playing shows far away from where I’m from, but the getting there sucks!

If you could change one thing about the music industry, what would it be?

EVERYONE: The devaluation of music and creators. We don’t have the space to get into that one today.

Marc: Bit of a cliché, but have it more based on talent and writing good songs instead of saying the right things and getting in the right circles.

Name one of your all-time favourite albums?

Cass: “The Black Parade” by My Chemical Romance.

Joe: My all-time favourite album is “Powerslave” by Iron Maiden 

Ryan: My favourite album, has to be Black Stone Cherry’s self-titled album.

Marc: “Metal Resistance” by Babymetal.

Josh: “Superuknown” by Soundgarden or “Elephant” by The White Stripes, I can’t make decisions like that!

What’s best? Vinyl, Cassettes, CD’s or Downloads?

Cass: I think there’s something aesthetically pleasing about vinyl – and any physical format to be honest. I also think there’s a much greater investment in music when there’s a physical format involved. Downloads and streaming are great for discovering new artists, for sure…but I believe that it has devalued the emotional and monetary worth music, and has left audiences much harder to engage. Never has the first 5 seconds of a song been more important than they are now, and I’m not sure that’s going to change. But I think ‘convenience culture’ spans far beyond the music industry…

What’s the best gig that you have played to date?

Cass: Bloodstock was an insane day. I was really unhappy with my performance that day, but there was nothing the atmosphere and reaction wasn’t going to solve.

Joe: Outside of Bloodstock I love playing at Newcastle O2 Academy, especially that main stage because it’s our hometown.

Ryan: Best gig I have ever played is Bloodstock Festival last year, huge crowd, amazing crowd, and a huge stage.

Marc: Yeah, Bloodstock was very fun.

Josh: We played Bloodstock and that was pretty awesome, and I always like playing a venue called The Vaults in Newton Stewart, Scotland, they always have a great crowd.

If you weren’t a musician, what else would you be doing?

Cass: I would be, and still am – a social worker by day. Living the dream, paying the bills!

Joe: Laying bricks, stone and blocks. I’m a bricklayer/stonemason by day. I love doing it, I think construction will always be in my life.

Ryan: I probably wouldn’t be anything else as I kind of suck at everything apart from music.

Marc: Getting enough sleep and making money.

Josh: Before I played music, I was really into Track and field athletics, I was great at Discus and 100m…

Which five people would you invite to a dinner party?

Cass: Joe, Ryan, Marc, Josh and Dave, of course!

What’s next for the band?

Cass: We’re busy trying to use lockdown to work on new music as much as possible, but in the current climate – who knows! We hope we can get out and actually play our album live, we had dates cancelled like everyone else. Hard to believe we moved the original release date from December 12th   2019  (Because it was General Election Results day) to March 13th, slap bang in the middle of the 1st major pandemic since the Spanish flu. Add that on top of that an agent in Germany (who has now disappeared) going “Bankrupt” in 2018 when we should have been going out on a European tour with Diamond Head (Not DH’s fault by the way, they were amazing though all of that)  and you would think we have ZERO luck, but, we are strong, we have fought for everything we have, our fans are incredible and have helped us though everything in some amazing ways. Hard to believe we have only been at this for 3 years really…..We have the support of an amazing label in Eclipse Records, our families help, they have travelled all over the country to man the merch desk for us, so we will keep fighting, keep writing and recording and when we do get back out on a stage near you, MAKE SURE you all come say hello.

What Social Media/Website links do you use to get your music out to people?

Cass: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube…we have our own website www.tomorrowislost.com where you can find our merch store and blogs, and we’ve also got our music up on all the major streaming and download platforms.

Josh: Literally everywhere…Some people say that if you pick up one of those seashells and put it to your ear, you can hear Our second single ‘Hideaway’…just sayin’!

Ryan: We even have our own artist pages now where we are posting up some videos of play throughs of our songs along with some covers and other things.

Jaffa Cakes? Are they a cake or a biscuit?

Josh: HA AH HA how to start a fight in an empty room man…FOR SURE it’s a biscuit purely because if it was a friends birthday, you wouldn’t stick a candle in it and give it to them, or would you?

Cass: Definitely cake. If you don’t dunk it in tea – it’s not a biscuit, and if you dunk a Jaffa cake in tea, you’re just wrong. I’m sorry.

Ryan: BISCUIT!!!!!!

Joe: Somewhere in between😂

Marc: It’s a Cake!!!!

Thank you for your time. Is there anything else that you would like to add?

Cass: Yeah – have you heard the album, and what’s your favourite track? Can we please give a shout out to all those that support us as a band?? SPAUN DRUMS, MOTORHEAD BEER, SCYMTEK CYMBALS, CLOVEN HOOF RUM, ECLIPSE RECORDS, CODE DRUMHEADS, LONDON DRUMSTICK COMPANY, VOCALZONE, INK CLAN NATION, MOONSTONE COSMETICS and BROTHERTON’S MUSIC. Thank you all so much for believing in us and for your continuing support!!! WE WILL see you all on the road as soon as possible.
