Brennan Dylan: Men Without Armies to release The self titled EP in Spring 2014

NYC artist Brennan Dylan is a guitar virtuoso and composer who lays down 4-on-the-floor rock, metal and neoclassical guitar. After numerous solo performances on both coasts and in-between, including performances on bills with artists Michael Angelo Batio, DeathRiders and Gorillaz, he concluded it was time to put a band together. In the fall of 2013 Men Without Armies was born. Armed with a bass player sporting a killer set of pipes and a drummer who knows no fear, the trio hit Vibe Studios Ohio recording 6 songs in 8 days. 'NYC' is the 1st song the band has released. You can experience their music here:

MWA will be releasing new music with interesting artwork regularly over the coming months. The self titled EP will be released in early Spring 2014

Conrad Simon: A new project inspired by the Mi'kmaq mythology and fantastic/horror films

A new project by the electric guitar virtuoso Conrad Simon inspired by the Mi'kmaq mythology and fantastic/horror films --

The CSBand is the new project of the electric guitar virtuoso Conrad Simon. Author, composer and director of a wordless, imaginative movie without actors. Inspired by the Mi'kmaq mythology transmitted by his ancestors and brotherhood and the fantastic/horror films which haunted his youth, he created a unique music, sometimes powerful metal, sometimes deep and grandiose classical anthems. Helped by the versatile and colored bass playing of TAZ and by the pyrotechnic drums of Louis Levesque, the CSBand will blow your mind with his distorted symphonic opus. The perfect soundtrack of your dreams and nightmares.

Le CSBand est le nouveau projet du virtuose de la guitare électrique Conrad Simon, auteur, compositeur et réalisateur d’une oeuvre musicale unique, véritable long-métrage muet et sans acteurs. Inspirée autant par la mythologie amérindienne Mic Mac transmise par ses ancêtres et ses frères de sang que par les films d’horreur et fantastiques qui hantèrent ses nuits, ses compositions allient la puissance brute du métal et les structures subtiles du classique. Appuyé par la basse versatile et colorée de TAZ et le jeu pyrotechnique de Louis Lévesque à la batterie, le CSBand sera la trame sonore de vos rêves et cauchemars.

Conrad Simon Band is proud to be associated with
