From Ashes to New… Believing in themselves

From Ashes to New

From Ashes to New was born in 2013. Before their first EP, the band became popular on social networks.

Finally, in 2016 their first studio album “Day One” was released.

The founder Matt Brandyberry, is a clear example of believing in themselves. After many disappointments in the music industry and bad decisions in life, he bet for himself and invested all his savings in From Ashes to New, catching the attention of the record companies and getting the desired musical contract.

In This Moment… Are you ready to meet them?

In this Moment (“Black Widow” album)

In This Moment, an American band formed in 2005. They were born in MySpace and today they have a legion of fans all over the world.

Singer Maria Brink and guitarist Chris Howorth met through some friends. After finding that they had a lot in common, they began writing songs together. Some of the recorded demos were posted on MySpace, which generated good feedback and a loyal fan base. Thanks to this, they managed to sign their first record contract with Century Media Records and their first album “Beautiful Tragedy“.

Who do you trust? Do you trust in Papa Roach?

This week the Californian band Papa Roach releases their 10th studio album “Who do you Trust?” And you… Do you still believe in the cockroach?

Before introducing themselves in the music world business with their famous debut album “Infest“, the band formed in 1993 recorded several EPs to make themselves known and thanks to them they got their first music contract to Warner Music Group and later to Dreamworks.

The name of the band comes from the grandfather of singer Jacoby Shaddix, who was nicknamed Papa Roach (his real name was Howard William Roatch).

Hit song:

I know it’s difficult to say, “If this is the first time you’ve listened to Papa Roach“. If the answer is yes, I recommend you to start with their first work “Infest“, pure nu metal with great verses by Jacoby. The more you listen to the following albums, the more those rap parts and heavy guitar riffs will disappear to arrive at what is my favorite album and that I would classify as MASTERPIECE, “F.E.A.R.“.
