SPOTLIGHT – Epos Nemo Latrocinium

Music is one of the most universal experiences in the world, as it’s ability to connect people and cultures is uncanny to many other methods. Bringing together three unique musicians, Tatsuya Nakatani, Casey Chittenden Jones and Joy Van Spain, the collaboration effort of Epos Nemo Latrocinium is something altogether unique and exciting.

The group highlights each member’s unique style and talent in their particular niche of music.

Nakatani is known for his percussion performances and has released over eighty recordings and national tours. While touring various areas with his percussion group Nakatani Gong Orchestra, Nakatani has developed his own unique instrumentalization and extended his technique extensively.

Jones is an avid electronic artist, who often dabbles in creating synthesizers and modified instruments to bring the creative and unique sounds to life. While expanding his craft in the experimental genre, Jones has performed in various festivals such as NorCal Noise Fest and Olympia Experimental Music Festival.

Van Spain is a well-known Seattle based vocalist and instrumentalist, who brings her knowledge of composition and orchestration to the table and uses her experimental talent to fuel her musical ability. From learning early on, Van Spain now focuses her talents towards industrial composition and work with Butoh performers over the last decade aside from the collaboration work with Epos Nemo Lacrocinium.

By all three musicians together, the projects behind the group are always unique and entertaining.

Announcing their third collaboration entitled Iter Itineris III, the experimental ensemble hopes to bring another unique experience to their audiences. Due out on April 1,  2018, through Scry Recordings the album is currently available for pre-order online through the groups |webpage|.

Finding a name for themselves in the social media digital age, Los Angeles musicians Romance and Rebellion (David LaViola (Guitar, Lead Vocals), Aaron Medina (Guitar, Harmony Vocals), Aleksander James (Guitar, Harmony Vocals), Brandon Davis (Bass, Vocals), Kyle Jordan Mueller (Drums) broke into the music scene in 2015. After the release of their debut EP in June 2016, they had to opportunity to take the stage at influential festivals such as Warped Tour and SXSW, and even headlined Emo Nite LA.  With a few years now under their belt, Romance and Rebellion are currently promoting their sophomore EP release, Amps & Anthems.

The lead single from the record is titled “Boys Don’t Cry” and is dedicated to breaking down the traditional gender stereotypes associated with daily interactions between men and women. Highlighting this factor, LaViola shares the deeper message behind the track stating, Boys don’t have to be ‘boys’…girls don’t have to be ‘girls’…and everyone should be able to rock a little pink.  ‘BOYS DON’T CRY’ is an anthem for anyone who is anything but normal.”

Amps & Anthems is detailed as having the right mixture of ” emo-studded angst, dripping with candy-coated heartache, wrapped in youthfully rebellious pop rock” says LaViola, as the album signifies a huge stepping stone in the band’s overall career and the path to success.

Diving deep into the metalcore scene of Chicago, I recently discovered SCIENTIST. SCIENTIST include guitarist/vocalist Eric Plonka, guitarist/vocalist Patrick Auclair, drummer Justin Cape, vocalist Barry Kotarba, and bassist Mathew Milligan and are currently gearing up for their third album release this spring and hails influence from the diverse comic book worlds of Grant Morrisson’s series, The Invisibles. The upcoming record titled Barbelith, details the ever-mystifying search for one’s self and the meaning of life, as the name hails from what is known as a “placenta” of human knowledge and connection in the comic book lore.

SCIENTIST spoke on the effort put forward for Barbelith, as it pushed the band musically to a new level and new experiences with production, “Barbelith will be our first record featuring a single, full-time vocalist, having historically opted for a mix of instrumental tracks and a revolving cast of guest vocalists. Barry Kotarba  was brought on board just a couple months before we began recording, and a series of synchronicities were gradually made evident to him the themes and ideas that would become Barbelith, one story of a single soul’s perspective within humanity’s search for truth and self.”

Barbelith is set to release on April 13, 2018 and is currently available for preorder online |Here|.

Household’s vocalists and bassist Joshua Gilbert speaks highly about the track, stating, “I feel like this song portrays the worst side of relationships gone bad.

The run kicks off in Santa Ana on February 27th and concludes in Las Vegas on March 31st. For more tour dates check out Equal Visions webpage or the full list of dates below.
