Rock the Vote!
Ministry of love is an awesome five piece band that has a very unique rock style. This unsigned band blends pop, emo, hard rock and metal riffs very well. On their Facebook page, they list Las Vegas and their home and the members are: Meg who does vocals, Pulsar plays bass, Rockstar Ryan and Devo Fresh play the guitars and Matticus bangs away on the drums. They do some kick ass music.
They are currently in a battle of the bands competition and need votes to move on up the charts and win. I have already cast my vote and I hope that, after you give them a listen, you shall do the same.
While I like the traditional Christmas music, I really like when artists do new unique tunes. As The Indie Guide points out, it is also an excellent way to get your band noticed by new listeneres. I bet you will want to check out Atomsplit after you hear the original tunes they did. They added to it being a kewl yule.
I also like more modern versions of traditional music. That is what this episode is about. We will feature more upbeat and modern, less traditional music in this Christmas special. While we shall do many traditional covers, they will be a new and upbeat take on the traditional songs. I shall also toss in a few excellent more traditional sounding tracks. The goal is modern and Christmas which leave me some poetic license in this new media order.
If the artist is available on Mevio’s Music Alley, (MMA) will take you there. Hope you like the modern versions of some of the classics.
