[Dark] UNKNOWN

NONE

The USA based ambient/industrial, neo-folk solo act None - a tribute to all the divine - was founded in 2015 by musician and songwriter Nicholas Mendiola (Ex-Plague Phalanx, Thangorodrim and Awakened Abyss). For Nicholas, None is the deity of his creation and the eternal version of himself. As he had stated for the interview (webzine From Corners Unknown), the purpose and mission of his contemporary life were to discover himself as the true voice and host that None speaks through - and to leave the word and mark of None upon the world not only to affect other present beings of the earth and multiverse but to leave traces for future lives to again discover their true identity.

None's music will be presented on the radio show [Dark] UNKNOWN this Thursday, 3 June at 22.00 [CEST] on Terra Relicta radio.

KING DUDE - Presents New Video For The Track From Upcoming Album, European Tour Kicks Off In September

Seattle (USA) based dark/folk rock act King Dude has released a new video for the track "Velvet Rope", taken from the upcoming album entitled Music To Make War To, which will be released on 24th August via Ván Records.
Mastermind TJ Cowgill comments about the album: "The history of the world seems to be a dizzying carousel; spinning on past times of peace and times of war, past times of life springing forth from some divine miracle and times when death comes along to dash it back down into dust. From the perspective of the ride each passing era becomes a blurred mass of color and shape, obscured by the distortion of our relatively fixed perspective. Much like the carousel itself the very thought of war can make one nauseated, disorientated and eventually sick. Perhaps it's the illness of those who cannot see themselves relative to the past, that is to say, those who don't know they are on a carousel to begin with that keeps us all firmly mounted to the backs of the carousel's mechanical wooden horses. Music To Make War To is an effort to explore what living in a perpetual state of conflict means to humanity. It represents an attempt to find war in less conventional places and explain those findings through allegory and rock'n'roll. Of course I didn't approach the subject in literal terms, as I'm sure many people will erroneously assume. In fact my work was done quite to the contrary. Also I feel compelled to say that I chose the title in 2011, as I have done with all my albums I have released since Love. The fact that war is on everyone's mind is purely a coincidence, dare I say a "happy accident". War is insane. When war occurs between two groups of people and a foreign, hostile environment, it gives birth to a specific type of incurable madness... As if war wasn't mad enough to begin with. This is the case during WWII, specifically during The Pacific War, where the US Marines not only battled the Japanese but also attempted to fight off the jungle's disease soaked grip. Indeed it proved to be a wartime recipe for insanity. War comes from within and without. War can be between two different families as well as within the very same family, those who are not only bonded by blood but also by surname, by legacy. War can happen between people whom love one another but are conflicted by their desire to destroy one another. Love doesn't always die when war is born. In many ways the act of war creates the opportunity for great acts of courage, moments of compassion, times of reason, thoughts of regret and a deeper understanding of love. Now more than ever, in times like these when it appears that some invisible yet inevitable war is on the horizon, it is crucial to recall the past and the total reality of war. So, who's ready to take another ride on the carousel?"
Pulling together the biblical sound and isolation of the bygone days of revelation with an atmosphere filled with hope and salvation, King Dude has woven his own brand of American music. He brandishes many varied influences in his songwriting. Everything from British folk, Americana, country and blues can be heard in his songs. Even the heavier sounds of heavy metal tend to sneak and slither it's way into the King Dude canon. The resulting songs are much more of a modern day hymn then your average pop song. Video for "Velvet Rope" was directed by Vova Protsenko and you can watch it in the player below. On 20th September King Dude will embark on an European tour with special guests Kaelan Mikla, make sure to check it out! Link
