HYRO THE HERO Converses with Madness To Creation on Craziest Live Moment, Doing Remixes During COVID-19, and if Donald Trump was in a Moshpit

Editor's Note:  Hyro The Hero is emulating what it means to be a hard rap/rock artist.  The primary reason why he had such a hiatus from 2011 to 2018 was that he was trying to find his identity as an artist.  He latched on to bands such as Korn, Atreyu, and the list goes on and he completely found his voice with his critically acclaimed 2018 release "Flagged Channel".  This man doesn't steer away from controversy either, he keeps it real and provocative.  However, he's been hunkering down like the rest of us(or what they should be doing), and doing remixes of songs during the COVID-19 pandemic. In this interview with Madness To Creation, Hyro The Hero discusses the COVID-19 pandemic, craziest live show moments, and how he would react if he saw Donald Trump in a mosh pit, along with collabo...

The Musician’s Tribune Vol. 36: “My Personal Spotify Playlist” by SOAWARE

Editor's Note:  On April 19th, Italy's SOAWARE will be unleashing their single entitled "We Shall Be One" ahead of their self-titled debut album.  Here is what SOAWARE had to say about it: “We Shall Be One” is about struggling with feeling separated and lonely while being aware one is not truly alone in the world. The emotional ethos of the lyrics are truly captured in brooding vocals which loom over an ethereal combination of guitars, bass, drums, and synths. The haunting tones of “We Shall Be One” leave the listener to ponder their own relationship with the world. Soaware’s founders and central songwriters, Damiano Bessi and Emanuele Grazioli, bring groundbreaking alternative rock from Italy to the rest of the world. They first met in 1999 while playing in the band Mad Cobol, later...
