Manafest : http://manafest.com/
In a world where conformity is king and sticking with the status quo is often a well-honed survival instinct, four-time Dove Award nominee Manafest has always found contentment in doing his own thing.
And refusing to be anyone but himself has clearly served him—and his artistry well. Even on the heels of his wildly popular, bestselling album Fighter, Manafest (real name: Chris Greenwood) refused to settle into a familiar, if-it-ain’t-broke-don’t-fix-it mentality when making the follow-up, The Moment. If anything, the Canadian born and California-based artist and author was even more compelled to dig deeper both lyrically and creatively.
The result is easily Manafest’s most innovative and personal project yet. Centering around the importance is being present in all of life’s moments, whether big or small, Manafest also shook things up sonically by teaming up with three producers, Thousand Foot Krutch’s Joel Bruyere (10 tracks), frequent collaborator Adam Messinger (“Edge of My Life” and Joshua O’Haire (“Light”).
Famous Last Words : https://www.facebook.com/famouslastwordsmusic/
Famous Last Words” - A phrase reflecting the final articulated words of an individual before death, often to be immortalized as the centerpiece of a particular movement…. It’s a pertinent name for a band whose lyrical concepts and themes revolve around life, death, hope and love.
Hailing from Petoskey, MI, Famous Last Words formed in 2009 and quickly began to make their mark within the scene. Utilizing heavy guitar riffs, catchy hooks, folly, and symphonic elements, the band took things a step further and introduced detailed stories into their lyrics and album structure; transforming their band into more of an art project. It was characteristics like this that lead the independent label InVogue records to sign the band in 2012.
After a heavy touring schedule, the band rode on the coattails of their own success, releasing their second full-length album in 2014 titled Council of the Dead. Recorded by Nick Sampson, they again based the entire album around a single concept. But unlike their previous album, Council of the Dead tells not one, but eight individual narratives, each delineating a specific story. The stories cover a wide range of circumstances, each portraying an idiosyncratic account of a person’s life nearing death. But each story bears a positive note in that it ruminates upon a person’s life as if looking back from the afterlife. Overall the album is not only a collection stories, but also a tale of the preserving human spirit through the greatest trials and hardships that life has to offer.
It Lives, It Breathes : http://www.itlivesitbreathes.com/
Providence, Rhode Island electronicore band It Lives, It Breathes formed after the split of metalcore band A Faylene Sky. The group combined disparate musical genres like trance, dubstep, glam metal, and hardcore into a style-blurring collision. Resurrecting themselves with a defiant new band name, former Faylene vocalist Kevin Lacerda and guitarist/programmer Kris Sobanski were joined by vocalist/bassist Jordan Stevens and guitarist Anthony DiBiase. The band's original lineup released its self-titled debut EP in 2012. It featured songs like "German Girls Can Invade My Pole-Land Anytime" and "I Don't Give a Jean-Claude Van Damme." The dubsteppy single "Part Deux" was released before the arrival of their sophomore EP, We Come in Numbers, which featured appearances by A Loss for Words and Crown the Empire. A series of singles was issued in the coming years, most notably the breakout track "Independence Day," which highlighted the band's electronic trance side. They signed with Stay Sick Recordings, the label created by Attila frontman Chris "Fronz" Fronzak. Their first LP, Silver Knights, was released in April 2016, debuting in the Top 20 of Billboard's Top Heatseekers chart. The album featured Jonny Craig on "Devils" and Kyle Lucas on "Miley Virus (The One).
