RECENT PRESS

The track, Ice Machine recently received an excellent write up via Death Or Desire.

Introducing Swamp Music Players with “Ice Machine”. With its moody, sad ambiance, the song joins the ranks of similar artists like Chromatics, Kandle, Electric Youth, and College.

What sets “Ice Machine” apart is its unique blend of synthwave and jazz we think personally, highlighted by a subtle soft snare percussion. Written by Hollywood’s Sugar Parks, the track spins a haunting tale set at the infamous Tiki Motel in California—most notably known as the seedy location in the 1980s film ‘The Terminator.’ The narrative is a pretty gripping one too, following a woman who takes the life of her spouse’s lover. As she grapples with her actions and thoughts, she becomes increasingly aware that the police are closing in on her. The music captures this tension and internal turmoil masterfully, turning “Ice Machine” into a mini-noir film for the ears. This emotionally charged single paired with the compelling musical backdrop makes “Ice Machine” more than just a track, but an experience.

Emerging from the ranks of bands such as Battlecross, Cursed Eternity, and As They Sleep, the 2015-founded heavy metal group Finality delivers a solid debut album, “Technocracy.” Striking a well-crafted balance between classic and contemporary elements, the band showcases a rich instrumental backdrop with skillfully executed riffs and supersonic leads. The modern heavy metal sound is embodied in the album’s controlled aggression, without relying too heavily on nostalgic connections.

The dynamic vocals adeptly adjust to the changing pace of the music, whether it’s fast and aggressive or slower and melodious, resulting in a highly commendable and engaging musical experience. “Technocracy” marks a promising start for Finality, as they carve out their own path in the heavy metal landscape.

Steve Greene track, Unbeknownst, for John Bergin’s Feels Like Rain book of short stories

john-bergin-feels-like-rain

Feels Like Rain

Steve Greene‘s track, Unbeknownst (The Wayward School) was composed for the companion album for author John Bergin‘s book of short stories entitled, Feels Like Rain.

John Bergin deftly weaves sixteen tales spanning a range of genres and topics—from the horrific and apocalyptic to the mundane, murderous, and supernatural. These are stories about guilt, anger, unknown pleasures, and death.

In Raised by Rats, a chance encounter with a superhero alters the course of a young man’s life. In Corpse Gun, a guide leads his charges across a surreal wasteland to a destination deadlier than the journey undertaken to reach it. In The Mountaineer, a determined man undertakes the Sisyphean task of delivering an extraordinary gift to a remote location. In The Bullet Collector, a teacher flees from America’s gun worship and discovers there is no escape. In The Crying Giant, a fairy tale ending eludes a gentle giant. In The House Of Frankenstein, the Frankenstein monster is alive and well, working his strangest case yet as a private investigator in New York City. In Lost in the Cold Hard Vacuum of Outer Space, a rebellious space pilot happens upon a lost astronaut who teaches her how to cool her jets.

These stories revolt, arouse, terrify, and delight—reveling in the imperfections of being human.

Unbeknownst (The Wayward School) was recorded and mixed here, at the Battler Chamber by Steve Greene. Listen to the track via Spotify or Apple Music.

You can get your own copy of the book by visiting John Bergin’s BandCamp page.

Steve Greene is owner of the Battle Chamber studio as well as a musician, film composer and 1/3 of the band Voyag3r. Check out music and mix examples on the Sounds Page.

But the tenants living in his building are always in need of him for something. Fix this, replace that, unblock this toilet. However, when the power goes out in the building the culprit is not a blown fuse or faulty wiring it is two of the tenants who have opened a portal to hell in the basement of the building. If Jack doesn’t close the portal and stop Great Cthulhu rising from his watery tomb city then the entire building, no, the entire world will go down the pan. – Mark A Wood

Check out this blurb from Film Threat magazine:The fascinating part of Future is that it’s not necessarily about Doug being sent to kill a future bad guy, though that is a part of the story. It’s more about the relationship between Doug and the Time Traveler. Doug is the guy who has wasted his life to this point. The Time Traveler, on the other hand, has schemed his way with many other saps, like Doug, and gets off on being there for the final days of someone’s life. He promotes falling into hedonistic desires and goes along with it. It’s this conflicting relationship that makes the story of Future so clever and different. This genre is in desperate need of both of those elements.”

New York Ninja playing on Showtime Networks, The Movie Channel Xtra

new-nork-ninja-the-movie-channel

New York Ninja is playing on Showtimes Networks, The Movie Channel Xtra on Wednesday, February 1st at 2:15am

From Showtimes website: The peaceful life of average working man, John, is shattered by the brutal murder of his pregnant wife. Disillusioned by the police’s slow response, John takes to the streets as a sword-wielding vigilante hell bent on cleaning up New York City crime and corruption. But as his quest for justice gains notoriety, a mysterious villain known only as the Plutonium Killer sets his sights on the New York ninja. This over-the-top cult classic was recently restored thirty-five years after being abandoned during production.

The Original Motion Picture to New York Ninja, by Voyag3r, was recorded, mixed and mastered by Steve Greene here at the Battle Chamber and was released on Digital, CD, Cassette and Vinyl by Mondo/Deathwaltz. The film was completed and released by Vinegar Syndrome and edited and re-directed by Kurtis Spieler.

Here is what the New York Times had to say about New York Ninja: The 1984 kung fu film was shot, but it wasn’t completed. Now, with a new director and newly recorded dialogue, the film sees the light of day.

The names of most of the original cast and crew are lost to time, and Spieler said Vinegar Syndrome tried to find Liu but wasn’t able to. This gave Spieler the chance to start fresh with the audio, commissioning a synth-heavy retro score by the Detroit band Voyag3r and fielding a murderer’s row of genre-film stalwarts to dub the actors.

Don’t miss your chance to see New York Ninja in the comfort of your own home! To listen to some of the New York Ninja score, by Voyag3r, visit our Sounds page. To pick up a copy of the soundtrack, visit the Official Voyag3r Store.
