Jon Lantic Debuts - Jon Lantic

Jon Lantic Shoot

The first song, ‘2Twenty2’ opens up in chaos and confusion making you feel rather overwhelmed and enthralled by this Garage Rock infusion. But don’t let this deter you yet.

Jon’s solo project successfully takes you back into time with his post-modern post-blues Rock sound. Reminding me of something more like Jack White and a little of Led Zeppelin, Thin Lizzy and Jimmy Page combined.

By the time we reach ‘Mirror Man’ and carry over to ‘Message Through Sound’, we are completely captured by his unique vocal tones and lyrical genius, and thus begins the setting for the rest of the album.

When we arrive at ‘The Hill’, we begin to hear some acoustic keys and a guitar taking us to the top. I was very much in my element and definitely enjoying this album.

Classic emotions rush through my veins and “sounds like early Black Sabbath” comes to mind when hearing ‘Cpt James Pinto’, telling a story of a sailor’s return home.

Jon Lantic has revolutionised that 70’s Rock sound in the 21st century and his music will reach new generations who will definitely be yearning for more.

I rate this album an 8 / 10 and definitely believe that Jon is another artist to watch closely.

ALBUM REVIEW: DEITY'S MUSE - CONVERGENCE

deitys muse convergenceUnderground Press was lucky enough to get a copy of DEITY'S MUSE'S new album titled 'Convergence', released in March 2016.  The band has shown their versatility and ability to adapt to the ever changing industry by experimenting with their sound quite a bit on 'Convergence' compared to their earlier albums.

DEITY'S MUSE call themselves a groove driven rock band from Johannesburg and the latest offering is their fourth studio album. Sharing the stage with many international acts as well as having an international tour under their belt, the latest album definitely showcases their growth over the years.

The album has taken more than two years to create, so I’m sure the bandmates are just dying to get on their next tour to promote the album.

'Convergence' was recorded between Ashley Lane at Loudmouth Studios, and by band members at home. Additional guitars and programming were recorded at Vin James Music in Australia by Clint Vincent (Dead Letter Circus) who is also credited as mixing engineer and producer for the album.

The album artwork was created locally and is really a beautiful piece of work. All in all the album gives fans something new to look forward to, with some fresh new influences mixed perfectly with the band's solid sound they have created over the years of performing.

DEITY'S MUSE is described as one of the greats in Johannesburg and we look forward to many more years of great music!
