WOMEN in ROCK featuring ZEPHYRA !!









ZEPHYRA are a wicked four piece metal band from Borås, Sweden featuring the distinctive female vocal style of Åsa. The band was formed in 2011 and have released a couple of EP:s, played shows around Sweden, done live shows on the radio, and received airplay on american and british radio shows. They signed a worldwide record deal in 2014 with Wormholedeath records and released the debut album; 'Mental Absolution'  Their second full length album "As The World Collapses'', recorded in 2015, will be released on August 5, 2016 on Inverse Records. With the new album, Zephyra has a bigger and more atmospheric sound than before, heavy and rhythmic, with keyboards and Åsa's full ranged and incredibly diverse vocals. I highly recommend this album !! My personal favorite so far is the turbo fueled Virago !! With 2 European tours coming up, and a second video in the works, Zephyra has a loaded schedule for this fall !! The band line-up features : Åsa Netterbrant - Vocals,  Tony Netterbrant - Guitar, Tobias Oja - Bass, Kujtim Gashi - Drums. For purchase info, click on the band website or the Inverse Records website !! Remember the Trike's Trax motto : 
LLB !! LISTEN to it, LIKE it, BUY it !!

METAL MADNESS featuring WHISPERED !!




Klik the pic



"WHISPERED" the masters of ‘Samurai Metal’ are back with third album "Metsutan – Songs of the Void", released on May 20th through Redhouse FMP / Inverse Records. The album is a complex masterpiece, fusing traditional Japanese instruments and atmospheres with Scandinavian melodic death metal. It’s not every band whose unique style of metal can coin a new term but Finland’s Whispered aren’t interested in playing by the rules. Melding northern melodic metal, nuances from Japanese folk and even the odd idea from a video game soundtrack and voila  ‘samurai metal’!! The band was formed in 2004 by vocalist and guitarist Jouni Valjakka , whose influences and love for Japan are clearly evident in the unique Whispered sound using traditional Japanese instruments like shamisen, shakuhachi and koto that perfectly compliment metal music. Valjakka, along with  Mikko Mattila - guitar, Kai Palo - bass, Jussi Kallava - drums, are the high powered METAL engine that powers this monster !! Whispered released their debut album Thousand Swords in 2010, followed by Shogunate Macabre in 2014, which was darker than its predecessor, introducing a more brutal sound without forgetting the melodic and symphonic aspects. The lyrics revolved around Japanese mythology, ghosts and bushido. With the release of "Metsutan-Songs Of The Void", the bands name will not only be "WHISPERED", but shouted worldwide !! You can check out "Whispered" at the links below or at the "Inverse Records" website. To keep up with the band follow them on Twitter or give them a like on Facebook. Always remember the Trike's Trax motto:
