Get ready for the hardest party of all times!

But, how to party the right way? If you believe the words of the french musicians from BOARS, you need the obligatory amount of fun and… wait! Gallows?

Nothing else is proposed by the title of their new masterpiece “There will be parties, there will be fun, there will be gallows for everyone”. That this is not meant in terms of gallows humor, but rather executes the antagonism of fun and earnestness that literally belongs to the bon ton of the five musicians: Where effectively placed electronic elements in the style of CELLDWELLER and shredding guitars combine to a tonal masterpiece, you know that a new era of electro/punk and crossover has begun.

What the icons of LINKIN PARK started to implement cautiously, when they began to combine electronic elements and guitar-sounds, is reassembled by BOARS with such consequence and efficiency that has no peer since the founding of the band in 2013. Carried by the catchy vocals and relentless screams of Maxime Keller (Frontman of SMASH HIT COMBO) the songs guarantee to be earworms.

Long story short: The music approaches bloody serious topics and in the same time promises to be ineffable fun! After two EPs that were released in the last years, the debut-album couldn’t have a more fitting name. “There will be parties, there will be fun, there will be gallows for everyone” is released solely digital on December 15th and by now is already worth to be called the future of Electro/Punk and Crossover. Whoever is ready to catch a glimpse in the future beyond the gallows should not miss the new album of BOARS!

Fourth Circle


All good things come in threes? Far from it! Welcome to the FOURTH CIRCLE, where epic Tunes encounter hard Riffs, and where the charming voice of Audrey Adornato is carrying the ears and hearts of their fans from the third to the fourth dimension.

The members of FOURTH CIRCLE from the French Hayange have, since their foundation in 2011, developed a musical style that always was bound to their strong influences of Symphonic Metal, yet breaking the bonds of the genre, by thinking outside of the box.

The glorious new album of FOURTH CIRCLE is named “Elements” and therefore is again taking account of the magical number “four”. Since where fire, water, air and earth interact a wholly new world of massive orchestral sound is about to emerge. But if you try to reduce the band from France to some numerological games you surely do wrong. It needs more than four qualities to confidently follow the footsteps of Bands like NIGHTWISH, WITHIN TEMPTATION, EPICA and more. Love and affinity towards symphonic Sounds, lifeblood, imaginativeness and much more has to be mentioned to handle such a task. And yet, the five musicians from France undeterredly follow that path, while they are firing a salvo of 13 powerful tracks consisting of guitar-riffs meeting skincrawling orchestral elements.

FOURTH CIRCLE are integrating themselves seamlessly into the force of nature of symphonic metal. So, who doesn’t miss to listen to “Elements”, will surely find more than four enrichments for his personal favourite-list.
