Sea Of Snakes, Circle Of Sighs, Deadwolff & Varkan: New Music & Videos from MAR

MAR premiered new music and/or videos featuring as many as four of its artists last Friday. From rock 'n roll to stoner metal to power metal to synth doom, we have it covered! Here a quick round-up for you to check it all out in one place.

1. SEA OF SNAKES: This is LA's newest and heaviest band featuring members of The Shrine, Motorsickle and others. MAR is releasing their debut EP, World On Fire, on April 2. The powerful opening track, "Let The Fire Burn" is streaming now, and has already been featured on Rob Blasko's "Volume Forever" Spotify playlist / podcast. The track premiere was accompanied by a glorious animation video, which you can watch right here. CDs and merch bundles are now available for pre-order on the SoS Bandcamp (instant free download of "Let The Fire Burn" included with every pre-order).

This Canadian band is bringing what they call the New Wave of Heavy Rock 'N Roll, and rightly so. Their self-titled debut EP will be released on cassette tape (plus free digital download) on May 7 via MAR. The band premiered a music video for the song "Double Up" off of this EP, and sure enough, the video is righteously rock 'n roll, and quintessentially Canadian. Watch it here, and pre-order the cassette or merch bundle on the Deadwolff Bandcamp (instant download of entire 5-song EP included with every pre-order).


3. CIRCLE OF SIGHS: This unique multi-national synth doom collective is releasing its second full-length album, Narci, on June 4 via MAR. The lead single "Heaven In Flames" premiered through a captivating music / lyric video, which you can watch here. Limited-edition grimace purple vinyl, test pressings with alternate cover art, and merch bundles are available for pre-order on the CoS Bandcamp (instant download of "Heaven In Flames" included with every pre-order). 


4. VARKAN: The Phoenix, Arizona power metal band is back with a bang, ready to slay with their new 2-track cassette single, Butcher, out May 7 via MAR. The title track is now streaming on the Varkan Bandcamp, and comes as an instant free download with every pre-order of the cassette, merch bundle or digital two-track single. 

That's it for now. Thank you for giving new heavy music a chance!
