A Sorrowful Dream Working With Desolate Ways

Brazilian doom band Desolate Ways are working on the production of their third album, which is being recorded in Nitro Sound Solutions studio and being produced by Roger Fingle.

This new release will feature Josie, the female vocalist of the Brazilian dark metal band A Sorrowful Dream, who will sing on the track 'Winter'.

About the invitation to take part on this album Josie comments: "I loved receiving the invitation to be part of Desolate Ways' new album. It's a great honour. Both bands, A Sorrowful Dream and Desolate Ways, are long time friends and already played together several times in Brazil and we always admired their music. Having the opportunity to contribute for their forthcoming album makes me feel very flattered and anxious for the result. Even both bands playing similar genres, there is a huge difference between our music, which makes everything more interesting. I hope to give a good contribution to one of the most important bands of the genre in our country, and which will definitely present another work made with extreme competence and quality."

Vote or Participate In Famecast's Metal Stage

There is an online competition going on at Famecast.com, which includes a metal "stage." This is the first season for the metal stage and Famecast's second season competition. Artists register and submit a music video, then fans vote and after 4 total rounds of voting 5 finalists from each stage are flown to Austin TX to compete in a webcast contest. The winner from each genre gets a check for $10,000. There will be a total of 12 winners - one from each stage or "genre."

The metal stage is currently open for voting, but still taking submissions through June 11.

The competition begins with the audience selecting the Top 50 artist performances. The contestant field will be narrowed each round until an ultimate winner is selected. Viewers may vote for as many artists they wish, but may only vote once per artist in each round. Advancing contestants must submit a NEW performance video when they reach the Top 10 (Round 4). Artists can choose to submit a new performance video during the Top 50 and Top 25 (Rounds 2 and 3), however, it is not required. The final five contestants from each Stage will be flown on location to compete in the FameCast 5 Finals, a live webcast where the online viewing audience selects the ultimate winner in each genre – the Famecast Fenom.

Already, some notables including At All Cost, Powerderburn and Desolate Ways are participating, as well as a number of even more underground bands. So head on over and sign up to vote or participate. Or just go and watch the videos.
