Song is the first preview of an upcoming EP that the band is preparing.
The band Kryour, which has established itself as one of the prominent names in metal in Brazil, released on March 3rd, on all digital platforms, the unprecedented single “Why Should I Know?”. In addition to streaming, the composition received a remarkable music video, available on the group’s official YouTube channel.
With a heavy and melodic sound, Kryour presents fans with a sound rich in influences, which looks to the future, with a focus on working with more modern sounds. The band uses electronic elements and more accessible melodies in the instrumental and vocal lines, however, without leaving aside the heavy sound that marked their trajectory until then.
The single “Why Should I Know?” is a release by Outono Music, a label specialized in rock and metal, distributed by the major Universal Music, the world leader in the music segment.
The band, which is based on melodic death metal and metalcore, plans to release an EP in the near future, in which it explores musical references and styles, arrangements and effects in more depth, resulting in more memorable songs.
Formed in 2014, Kryour released their debut album, Where Treasures Are Nothing, in 2019, a conceptual work that revolves around the facts from birth to death and addresses human values and resilience. The work, composed of eleven original tracks, was produced by Diego Castro, and the cover was in charge of Carlos Fides (Evergrey, Narnia, Semblant, Shaman).
With the great repercussion between the audience and the specialized media, Kryour got the opportunity to open the concert of the consecrated legend of prog metal, Symphony X, in Limeira, in the interior of São Paulo. In 2020, they were one of the winning bands of the New Rock Bands cultural contest, which had more than 700 entries. The current formation of Kryour has Gustavo Iandoli (vocals and guitar), Guba Oliveira (guitar), Gustavo Muniz (bass) and Matt Carrilho (drums).
The single “Why Should I Know?” is the first step in this new stage of Kryour’s career. The band continues to work on new compositions and plans to return to the stage, after a period of hiatus due to the pandemic, to promote their new releases.
The music manager at hollywoodfm.digital said that she loved the new single ‘2 Luv U‘ from ‘Sarah Diaz‘ with its soulful, dreamy, melodic and pure vocals, that give you shivers down your spine, as they rise up into a catchy chorus, that is reminiscent of the UK’s Adele meets The Sugarbabes. This track is a great fusion of pop, ballad and electronic with a hint of the 80’s, brilliant. This lovely new single is now on the hollywoodfm.digital playlist and will be played in general rotation day and night + as a special powerplay at approx 7:30 PM Pacific USA time every night time for a month or more.
Sarah Diaz, a 19-year-old singer/songwriter from Lafayette, Louisiana, is ecstatic as she embarks on her new adventure as an aspiring female pop star with nothing but big aspirations and incredible musical abilities to back her up. She wants her music to reflect the kind and fearless attitude of the young woman who is more than ready to take on the world. Sarah Diaz has started on the right foot with what is one of the most original and passion-full tracks I’ve listened to in quite a while; and let’s face it, with millions of new music getting released every day, my playlist is always work in progress and it is a tough ask to filter through humongous chunks of new music so as to find the right fit for your tastes- I’m just glad that there will be a new addition into my playlist in the form of Sarah Diaz’s “2 Luv U” because it made an impression on me to qualify as a straight favorite!
While you can accuse Sarah Diaz of many things, of lack of passion, grit and spirit is not something you can! Diaz unleashes an admirable energetic and ingratiating singing throughout “2 Luv U.” She has a very unique voice that is easy to identify her with and she definitely possesses that artist-like sense of phrasing that highlights her songwriting proficiency. There are a lot of things that can make you fall in love with a song and I found a variety in “2 Luv U”; the melodies are undeniably abundant and they don’t let you guess which turn they may make next, you are taken through an oasis of modern pop-flavored instrumentation with cinematic features and futuristic vibe as Sarah Diaz makes her presence felt over the instrumentations via her own polished and euphonious vocals.
The marriage between her harmonious and emotion-drenched vocals and the melodious beats create an addicting and quite frankly unforgettable sound that will remain ingrained in your head even after the tune is no more. The tune also carries a deeply meaningful theme at its core about getting caught up in a toxic relationship where you really can’t stay but still can’t let go; – it is like you are caught in this endless loop within yourself. Most of us have actually been caught within yourself.
Most of us have actually been caught up in this situation where it literally kills you to love someone else and that is why this track is likely to resonate deeply with you! For a start, this is absolutely commendable and I can only see nothing but a bright future for Sarah Diaz as far as her music career is concerned. I am looking forward to hearing more from her because she has already ignited a spark of likeability from within me which I’ll need to nourish every now and then!

The head of rock music at hollywoodfm.digital has announced that the new single ‘The Land’ from ‘Cultura Tres’ is now on the daily rock playlist. This intricate, compelling and direct rock metal single rocks with an anger that could blast away its enemies in one blow. Who are the enemies ?. The evil corporations, governments and looters who are destroying the Amazon forests every day. This massive and mammoth song delivers a strong and defiant message on behalf of mother earth and is sure to get you banging your head in protest. Listen out for it on the A-List played all day and night in general rotation + as a special ROCK PROTEST POWERPLAY at approx 12 PM Midday Pacific USA time for a month or more.
On Friday, February 24th, metallers from CULTURA TRES released “The Land”, the third single from their upcoming album “Camino De Brujos” due for release on April 7th, 2023 via Outono Music/Universal Music in the Americas and Bloodblast in the rest of the world.
“The Land” is a dense song, which addresses a heavy issue of extreme urgency and importance.
“For us the lyrics of ‘The Land’ are the most meaningful of the album, they strike a nerve in all of us as South American born musicians, as Venezuelans, Brazilians and Colombians. I can’t help but feel the frustration, the powerless feeling of seeing our Amazon forest being eaten alive by corporate interests (…) We are part of this problem, we are part of a society that directly or indirectly endorse atrocities against mother nature and against indigenous people.” comments vocalist Alejandro Montoya.
The track also features a music video with cinematic images that masterfully makes us feel the overload of anger and sadness at seeing countless corporations, governments and looters together acting as an evil front that our ‘Amazonas’ have no defense from.
By addressing a topic like this, the single is able to make the public reflect on this problem, on what could be done to prevent the destruction of forests, tribes and biodiversity in order to preserve the largest tropical forest on the planet. Alejandro says: “(…) this happens in our backyard. In the south of Venezuela, in the north of Brazil, in the southeast of Colombia. The worst part is to realize that this horror story doesn’t play in a far away world where the good and the bad guys are easily identifiable… Sadly, we as society in 2023 don’t seem to differ a lot from the “bad people” in our History books.”
Musically speaking, when listening to the song for the first time, the first impression is dark but as the bass-line becomes clear you find yourself in a 70’s psychedelic rock feel, the climax of this intro builds slowly and it results on a powerful drum beat filled with toms and a heavy open guitar riff. The music is as dense and heavy as the subject of its lyrics. It goes through atmospheres of dark rock and sections where Slash-like solos catch the attention of the listener. Paulo, who besides bringing his SEPULTURA trademark sound also explores beyond it, lots of 70’s inspired bass lines with plenty of dynamics that can be heard in his playing during this song.
More about “Camino De Brujos”:
In the studio the band explored new ideas and found a musical common ground. The resulting style retained elements of the psychedelic-sludgy past, but incorporated the groove of a more metal oriented vibe that Paulo brought in with his SEPULTURA influence.
So, how should South American heavy music sound like nowadays? The answer is easy – just listen to “Camino De Brujos”, an album which explores both new and old musical textures. The power of thrash metal meets the eeriness of sludge and the melancholic feel of classic rock.
“The album title ‘Camino de Brujos’ can be roughly translated as ‘Trail of Witches’. Do you remember the little story about letting your subconscious make artistic choices? Well this is one of the best examples, ‘Camino de Brujos’ is the main line sang on top of a nasty slow riff, the song is filled with tribal ritual percussion, typical from south America’s black magic practices. The phrase didn’t only end up being the only lyrics sang on the song but it also gave the name and identity to the album”, explains Alejandro Londono Montoya.
“Camino De Brujos” will be released as vinyl, CD, cassette, and digital. Pre-order you copy now HERE Pre-save the album HERE
