SHIPROCKED: Los Angeles, CA – July 28, 2011 – Monster Energy joins ShipRocked 2011 as it sets sail November 14-19, 2011 from Ft. Lauderdale, FL, heading for the tip of Mexico and the Caribbean.

VOYAGER: Western Australia’s masters of progressive metal experimentation VOYAGER have signed with the New Jersey-based prog metal pros at Sensory Records for the release of their upcoming fourth full-length album, The Meaning of I. Conceived in 1999 by German-born musician Danny Estrin, VOYAGER are certainly well known throughout the prog metal circuit worldwide, having carved an incredible, diehard cult fanbase since inception. The unit’s previous three albums display their unique and even strange integration of symphonic, electronic and progressive elements crafted into a seamless, incredibly executed, multi-genre style all their own, bridging gaps between metal subgenres and even verging on 80’s pop. http://www.voyager-australia.com

ISOLATION: Today, CVLT Nation is hosting a stream of “Closing A Circle,” from German blackened doom rockers, ISOLATION. “Closing A Circle” is the title track from the band’s recently released debut full-length. Commented guitarist/vocalist Johannes Schmid: “The song is certainly one of the strongest tracks on the album and that’s why we chose it as the title track. The song contains nearly all elements that define our music. Lyrically, the song is about those moments in life where mistakes seem to repeat themselves and you feel you cannot to do anything about it.” Witness the gloom, by point your browser HERE. http://www.cvltnation.com/isolation-%E2%80%93-closing-a-circlenow-streaming/
