Madness To Creation Podcast: Mental Health Breakthroughs featuring Robin & Lela of VENUES + Album Review of “Solace”

https://open.spotify.com/episode/7sRLsZNE1qLWLK7C5Nvebf?si=79ecf88f177e4023 Editor's Note:  On August 27th, the blistering German modern metal band VENUES released their album entitled "Solace" via Arising Empire.  The band entered Sawdust Recordings with producer Christoph Wieczorek(Annisokay) to record "Solace" and the results have been nothing short of spectacular.  This is the first album to feature clean vocalist Daniela "Lela" Gruber and between her vocals and unclean vocalist Robin Baumann, there is a plethora of dynamics at play in this effort.  Venues has shared the stage with Polaris, The Amity Affliction and Atreyu.  Let's get straight on with the review of the record: "Solace" by VENUES, offers just what solace is supposed to offer, moments of clarity in the midst of brut...

(Mental Health Conversations) Madness To Creation Podcast Season 2 Ep. 25: Scott Fisher of CAPSTAN

Editor's Note:  Capstan drummer Scott Fisher talks mental health, their latest album "Separate", dogs, and coping with anxiety and drumming techniques on the Madness To Creation Podcast.  "Separate" was released July 23rd via Fearless Records and the album is whimsical one moment and absolutely brutal the next moment.  Because of this, Capstan has built quite the underground following by sounding pop/punk while incorporating sick breakdowns while writing thought-provoking lyrics about relationships, mental states and reflection.  In this album, a lot of the songwriting was based on the guitarist's divorce and the emotions he was feeling from the separation and divorce of his wife.  It's a record that so many people can relate to and "Separate" catapults Capstan to the next tier.  Fans ...
