Nearly to the release of DRC Vol.2 the rock band Violet join with their cover version of It’s No Good. The version is really good a recorded well. Dynamic sound and growl parts at the end fits perfectly to this compilation.
Band info: Initially, serbian band Violet experimented in the field of alternative R’n’R. Over the years, and after several changes in the line up, the sound of Violet became harder, and the band chose to get closer to domestic audience by writing lyrics in serbian language. Individual tastes in music of the band members, which vary greatly, from punk, to hard rock and metal, with a strong influence of the Foo Fighters, resulted in a melodic songs about everyday love and social issues. In addition to several concerts in the home town and its surroundings, Violet was a representative of Serbia at the traditional festival Urban Fest Osijek, Croatia. It is interesting that the audience had been choosing which bands were to play, and Violet was one of the few bands selected from over 300 applicants from across the region.
As the highlight of the career so far, but also as a kind of run-up before the start of work on a new album, the band recorded a mini album of 5 songs, along with a video for the title song ”Heart of Glass”.

Melancholy, dark and heavy. You really feel the pain by hearing this song. This version is definitely more Doom instead of Black Metal. It comes like a slow painful death. I especially like the band pic. Doesn’t really fit to the sound, but I also don’t like to think too stereotype.
Band info: We meet in 2008 in a Anathema concert and since then we never give up to music. We started to play metal cause was our main motivation and influence but with tome our music became more electronic. Today we are working in a 10 songs CD which is expected to come out around summer 2013.

TONIGHT!!! Never heard a greater screaming in a Behind The Wheel cover that that one. This cover is has a really heavy dynamic. Starts with silent synth sounds until all hell breaks loose, when Lemo starts screaming. Really nice heavy sounds, essecially at the end.
Band info: ZORG is an Estonian experimental metal band that flirts with hip hop, industrial, trip hop, folk etc.
The beginning of ZORG dates back to December 1999 when first demo songs were uploaded to couple of internet sites. In 2001, the debut album “Artificial” was released. After different experiments, EP-s, singles and changes in line up ZORG came back in 2010 with new album ”Rooste” (”Rust”), that was released in facebook and is still available as a free download via www.zorg.ee.

This is the first exclusive produced song for DRC. I’m kneeing down to this great band. A powerful intro and a perfectly catched dynamic between the verse and refrain parts.
I think this version will be one of the first tracks on the new DRC Vol.2 Compilation. You guys really rock!
Band info: For over a decade Agente Naranja continues its natural course, mutating, true to his feelings, in constant search of inspiration, following the path that we like, MUSIC. New album coming soon 2012 for free download in our official website.
Mick is a really cool guy. In his own words, Policy Of Truth was never covered so powerfull and metal as Nevergreen did. With this arguments he and his band mates of course must be on DRC.
Band info: The band was formed in Hungary, in the mid-nineties. Members are from Hungary and Serbia. Since then, Nevergreen became the most popular Hungarian gothic-doom band, well known in the region too, in Serbia, Romania, Slovakia, Bosnia. They used to play at the biggest festivals in Hungary, Romania, and in the former Yougoslav countries right before bands like Anathema, Paradise Lost, Deathstars, Apocalyptica, Sepultura. They released 10 studio CD for Hungarian label Hammer Records and one Live-DVD. Nevergreen play his songs on English and Hungarian, it depends where they play.

Higher Love, the last song from Songs Of Faith And Devotion covered very well from Silhouette [,silu:'et]. Silhouette is a young band from Lithuania and Eugene fast likes the idea to be a part of DRC. I’m glad to welcome you.
Band info: It was dark and creepy autumn of 2004, when the strange flows of music matter and glowing darkness born the act, which was later on to become the ’Silhouette’..
Heavy riffs, dark vocals, prog rhythms, melancholic atmosphere and a hint of cosmic dust – this strange mixture is what we create.

Eugene – Lead guitar, Dark vocals
Artur – Bass

This is the heaviest version of I Feel Loved I’ve ever heard. What would I give to hear more of those heavy DM cover versions. Anyway, I’m glad to welcome Nafak on board of DRC.

I must admit that Stripped is not one of my favorite DM songs. And the most cover versions of Stripped are boring, too. But these four guys bring the rock in this track. It’s powerful and I love the melody from the “funky guitar” most. PS. This is the first entry from a band who lives on a tiny island.
Band info: What series of events unites a few strangers to make music together? Is it a cosmic anomaly or destiny? Jandre Nadal, John Feliciano, Edgar Ramos and JuanMa Font gravitated towards each other because of a shared desire to create intoxicating and sublime music. Since 2009 this intricate sonic workshop has yielded blistering tracks with great depth, melding dreamlike sounds with unheard-of guitar strength, tight bass, high-energy drums and powerful melodic vocals.

John Feliciano: Guitar
Edgar Ramos: Bass
