Prog metal outfit CHAOSBAY from Berlin / Kaiserslautern are re-releasing their
debut album VASILISA (2015) as a completely remastered version. This time with a
classy digipack design, including lyrics and credits.
With its digital release in 2015, the album made the band internationally known as a
prog insider tip. The record is based on the Russian fairy tale "The beautiful Vasilisa"
by Alexander Afanasyev and is a concept album, which tells the story in terms of
content and music through all eight chapters.
Brutal staccato riffs, double-bass thunderstorms and epic melodies lead through this
piece at high speed. The sound can be compared to bands like DREAM THEATER,
OPETH and PORCUPINE TREE. In the process, topics are repeatedly taken up,
processed and combined almost symphonically to form a large overall work that
sounds closed, entertaining and exciting.
Singer and main songwriter Jan Listing screams, growls, sings playfully over several
octaves, from gentle to aggressive. Virtuoso instrumental passages alternate with
catchy hooklines and atmospheric pads.
Produced and mixed by Daniel Weber (bass player for German prog-gods THE
INTERSPHERE), the album shines with a powerful, modern and yet organic sound.
VASILISA brings CHAOSBAY into another league and gives a foretaste of the highly
acclaimed follow-up album ASYLUM (2020).

Corin Curschellas is celebrating her stage anniversary with a special 4-CD box set. Corin Curschellas performed live for the first time 50 years ago and already showed her versatile talents back then. This anniversary was an occasion for the Tourbo Music label to look back on the career of the Graubünden singer, multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and actress and to publish the extraordinary retrospective "Collecziuns: Her Songs 1990-2010+2022".
In 2023, Corin Curschellas is best known for new versions of traditional Romanesque folk songs that are as subtle as they are fresh, which she has created in changing formations over the past twelve years. These are loved by the audience and praised by the media. Because of this, however, Corin Curschellas' earlier work was somewhat forgotten, especially since these recordings are outdated. Therefore, the focus of the retrospective was placed on her own compositions from the years 1990-2010, in which she showed herself to be linguistically and stylistically cosmopolitan. They are songs in dialect, German, English, French and Romansh, which were recorded in studios in Graubünden, Zurich, Berlin, Vienna, Paris, London and New York with countless musicians from Switzerland, Europe, Africa and the USA.
The selection of the pieces was made by Mathias Rüegg, the spiritus rector of the Vienna Art Orchestra, in which Corin Curschellas worked as a solo singer for many years. The renowned composer and arranger has created a very personal and not a chronological or thematic compilation. Despite all the musical and linguistic diversity, the unmistakably clear and multifaceted voice of Corin Curschellas is always the focus. The 60 pieces also include some unpublished solo pieces and poem settings from 2022, as well as four works composed for Corin Curschellas with the Vienna Art Orchestra. In addition to the four CDs, the box also contains two stylishly designed brochures illustrated with numerous photos with all the lyrics and tributes to 26 personalities.
Complex vocals, warm basses, filigree orchestral elements and hand-picked electronic sounds paired with interesting harmonies and honest lyrics - that's the essence of Tameera. The young artist uses these components in a variety of ways to create sometimes melancholic and dreamy, sometimes energetic and powerful sound worlds and moves skillfully between indie pop and R&B with her unique sound. Tabea Meusch, who is now 23, discovered her love of music in her early childhood and received her first musical lessons at the age of six. Since then she has been gaining experience in various bands and choirs for years, until she finally moved to Osnabrück in 2016 to study pop singing at the institute for music at the local university and also to make music her profession. During the course of her studies, Tameera became increasingly involved in writing and recording her own English-language songs and thus developed the characteristic sound that runs like a red thread through her debut work: The EP "My Mind", which will be released on June 25th, 2021 major international streaming services such as Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music and Co. and will also be available in physical form on CD from August. In addition to the carefully developed sound worlds, the Paderborn native also attaches great importance to the messages conveyed by her songs: "All my lyrics are inspired by topics and stories that particularly touched and preoccupied me at the time of writing. Through working on With this EP I was able to cope with some important milestones in my life and I am grateful for the opportunity to share my dealings with others." The young artist would like to bring her songs to life on stage as well and is currently working with her band on the realization of her own live shows. The four-strong troupe consisting of Marvin Kreimeier (keys), Leo Steinhaus (bass) and Julian Wieder (drums) alongside the singer herself got to know each other during their joint studies or during study-related musical projects and finally formed a band in spring 2021 got together. Since then, the musicians have interpreted and played the songs written by Tabea in the band context and thus worked together in the studio on new recordings. The band plans to do a variety of live concerts, participate in various band competitions, and write and record new music in the future.
