--

CONAN - "RIGHTEOUS ALLIANCE"

--

HETTA - HEADLIGHTS EP

Seattle metal/punk/noise rock unit Turian inject a new wave influence into their caustic sound on new single "Narcissus," which you can read more about here.

--

HEILUNG - "ASJA"

"Our second single release is a love song," Heilung write. "Maria sings to the listener of love, recovery and prosperity, chasing away evil and welcoming love. The piece contains a quotation of some lines of 'Hávamál,' combined with a selection of blessing words meant to provide help to the listener in a troubled time. Kai brought his vocal part of 'Asja' back to us after a month of isolation, fasting and meditation in nature. Only the spirits know the full meaning, but we do know that the context is love, prosperity and protection." It's from their new album Drif, due out next month.
