An Interview With The One, The Only…Hard Rocker George Swan!

 

We managed to get the chance to sit down and speak to Canadian classic rocker George Swan about his past releases as well as what is yet to come…

Q:What attracted you to the kind of music you play?

A: The power of the music was the main thing for me. I listened to lots of prog rock in the 70’s.  I was getting into Uriah Heep, Pink Floyd, Emerson Lake and Palmer, Yes, Deep Purple, The Doors, Led Zeppelin, The Zombies and The Who etc.  I really liked the heavy rock with the synthesizer and distorted organs going on.  Then I saw guys like The Who in 1977 and became a big Who fan overnight.  I also saw AC/DC around the same time with Bon Scott, and BTO-Bachman Turner Overdrive- among others.  I became a real fan of power rock.

Q: What is your local music scene like? How do you think you fit in?

A: My local music scene is very limited these days.  It’s too expensive here, everybody has left.  The venues are closing down too, so it’s not good.  Back in the day though, there were 12 or so live venues in Richmond alone where bands could play.  We fit right in.

Q: How do you go about writing your songs? What is the process you go through? 

A: For song writing, usually while fooling around with a keyboard of some kind I’ll come up with a chord progression that sounds cool to me…  I jam on it for a while with the band, if there is one, and see what I/we come up with.  For the most part my vocals are sung over the progression and I just see what I come up with for words while jamming.  I record everything and you know basically play something for 45 minutes or so and see how it sounds. 

Q: After so many years playing in bands, how have you found the move into being, essentially, a solo artist?

A: Now I win more arguments!  *kidding*…  No it’s definitely not as much fun, you really enjoy having all that input.  Plus there’s a lot more spontaneity in a band where you can just go somewhere musically on a whim and see what comes out.

Character, Chords and Chaos, The Survival Code Release ‘Along The Way’

 

The boys over at The Survival Code are at it again with their brand new single ‘Along the Way’. And this time, they’ve channeled their inspirations for this new song, and we are loving it.

Gary McGuinness (Guitar/Vocals) and Tom Cook (Drums/Backing vocals) have done it again with a monuments anthem that has the most head banging, air punching vibe possible.

With a catchy chorus that uses elegant yet prominent counter melodies, a guitar lick that has managed to cement itself into my head and a rhythm section for the ages, you’d be a fool not to check this out:

Anarchy Reigns Release Lead Track From Forthcoming Album For Free

British metal titans, Anarchy Reigns, one of the biggest social media hits of 2017, are expanding beyond their legions of followers performing acts of minor insurrection worldwide to bring their music to an even larger audience. With typical disregard for convention, they are launching the campaign trail to their much anticipated debut album by GIVING AWAY the lead track, Hypocrisy.

Whether this is a stroke of genius or commercial suicide remains to be seen but you can’t argue that they’re leaving their huge fan-base shortchanged! Hypocrisy draws heavily (literally) from the British tradition of no-nonsense metal and hard rock but an emphasis on cramming as many riffs and soaring chorus’ into 3 and a bit minutes as possible, though also nodding to more European and American influences, with elements of both industrial and symphonic metal.

All of this would be all well and good but Anarchy Reign’s biggest hook is their frontman, Hitch, a force of nature and a tornado of quips, rants and pithy missives, his very clear agenda being to bring down any element of authority and power which has over-stepped the mark. Such is the case with Hypocrisy which, well, can speak for itself.
