***2015 OMSB mp3 Mix #4 (April)***

April 2015 mp3 MIX #4
...and updates

As you may or may not have noticed, the monthly mix has dwindled from 31 tracks to 12 over the course of the last 22 months. This is mainly due to now working two jobs, maintaining the record label and being a father to my child. Soon I will be going back to school so this number may drop to 10 but I'll never go below that. Over the next few months there will be some killer interviews. This month will see Montcalm (email) and Protest The Hero (video) interviews while next month I should have Ampere (email) and Careless (email) finished as well. I've also linked my new song along with Chris Story of Yaphet Kotto/The Anasazi/Jenny Piccolo/Makara fame from the new 'Empathy' compilation featuring some killer bands including our own мятеж. We will have a release coming out shortly as a demo or, at the very latest, a split with People's Temple Project and a short string of shows is in the works for July with additional musicians helping us out from other amazing bands that have all been reviewed on this blog. Thanks for reading, all!

The following page have changes:

As always, on or around the 1st of every month, I will be posting a ZIP file with songs for the upcoming month with ALL specifics deleted from the tags, so unless you already know the band, there is NO information regarding each track.

During the following month, I will post reviews for those bands and link the tracks to the review so you can associate the two together. This way you can listen to a new song/band and have little-to-no bias. Below, I have re-posted the March mp3 mix that is used for this month's reviews.

The new OMSB mp3 Mix #4 will be reviewed in April and is a pretty heavy affair with 12 songs that include:
*-* two brand new song premieres!
*-* two bands related to The Blood Brothers
*-* an amazing new "band" that boasts 12 members (not all playing at the same time, mind you)
*-* the vocalist from Orchid's newer project
*-* an old cornerstone metallic hardcore/screamo band that was all over the Level Plane roster


Any bands/labels that are interested in having their stuff reviewed, please email zegemabeachrecords@gmail.com: with "Open Mind Saturated Brain" as the subject. Please keep in mind that I don't review everything, just what jives with the blog. I will, however, listen to everything you send me.
