The release is now available in the digital album will be launched on every worldwide webstores, iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, Deezer, Google Play, Tidal, Shazam...

"Origins" is an album that Ricky want to put his feelings into it. It's not a crazy guitar solo album with million note for second, but an album that mix of heavy side at the begin and moving to a lighter side of his guitar playing. It's an album that you can hear without effort cause isn't just crazy instrumental stuffs, but has nice melodies here and there who tries to give you some moments of thinking about whats going on, but also gives you moments of just relaxation and peace.

Song by song:

01 - Stand Your Ground
The concept behind Stand Your Ground is mantain your position, focus and belief. No matter the adversity life brings to you.

02 - Three Days
When I wrote ''Three Days'' I was playing a video game called ''The Legend of Zelda - Majora's Mask'' where the hero ''Link'' has only Three Days to save the world from a catastrophic Moon Fall.

03 - Black Materia
This a song that I wrote many years ago when I used to play with some friends in a little church in my hometown in Sorocaba, Brazil. We wanted to have a dark and heavy instrumental song. So I came home after our rehearsal and created this song after many hours looking for nice tappings and harmony parts. When I finished the process was late night.

04 - Origins
''Origins'' is song that I wrote last year. I was looking for some instrumental smooth rock type of song. In this tune we had the privilege of have an amazing Brazilian guitar player called Alex Martinho perfoming a very beautiful guitar part. Thanks Alex. You Rock man !

05 - Believe
Everybody I think had a moment in life when everything is not the best or had some troubles and the confidence goes down. I had this kind of problems too. And this song is about don't give up. Cause the life is greater than our problems. So we must carry on.

06 - Digital Fusion
''Digital Fusion'' is a song that I recorded just very quickly. I grab the guitar and play the most crazy solo I can improvise over this harmony. After I had recorded the solo and listened I just have no doubt that there's is a fusion cool kind of sound that I want to have in the album.

07 - Blue Sky
When I started to write ''Blue Sky'' was a beautiful lovely day in my city. Nice weather, a cool autumn breeze. And the sky was incredibly blue. So I took this nice harmony that I already have and started to record. Very cool day !

08 - Toupeira's Paradise
When I was a kid. I had this fun nickname which is ''Toupeira''. What means MOLE in english. I always liked this nickname cause sounds funny ! So when I'm playing my guitar is like i have been in a paradise. The ''Toupeira's Paradise''

09 - Whispering
Imagine that you are playing your guitar or whatever instrument you like in front of a beautiful and calm river surrounded by little birds and a warm wind. That's the inspiration for this song.

The video can be viewed here: 

PUREST OF PAIN launched a successful Indiegogo campaign for the ‘Solipsis’ album. Only one plug-in, and not a single digital effect or synth was used for the recording of ‘Solipsis’. The album was produced by Merel Bechtold. Mixed by Mantis Audio. 
Mastered by Jens Bogren (Opeth, Arch Enemy, Soilwork). Merel Bechtold was responsible for the artwork concept and bass player Frank van Leeuwen designed and finalized the cover. 
PUREST OF PAIN have recently released a lyric video for ‘The Solipsist‘ and a audio video for ‘Terra Nil‘. “Really digging the album, honestly! You guys have managed to blend brutality with groove and emotion in a great way!” Jens Bogren (Opeth, Arch Enemy, Soilwork) 

‘Solipsis’ track listing: 
01. The Pragmatic (1:19) 02. Truth–seeker (2:09) 03. Vessels (2:59) 04. Crown Of Worms (3:42) 05. Momentum (5:05) 06. The Sleep Of Reason (1:33) 07. Tidebreaker (4:16) 08. Trial & Error (4:49) 09. Terra Nil (6:05) 10. Noctambulist (3:38) 11. E.M.D.R. (4:21) 12. Phantom Limb (4:09) 13. The Solipsist (3:52) 14. The End (2:25) 

J.D. Kaye ­ – Vocals 
Merel Bechtold – Guitars (Delain, MaYaN, The Gentle Storm/Anneke van Giersbergen) 
Michael van Eck – Guitars (Vanaheim) 
Frank van Leeuwen – Bass 
Joey de Boer – Drums (Delain)

Led by guitarist and main songwriter Merel Bechtold (DELAIN), who also performs in much-respected bands MAYAN and THE GENTLE STORM, the energetic quintet from Holland, which now includes DELAIN drummer Joey de Boer, is a force to be reckoned with. 
Combining Scandinavian metal influences with groove, ambiance, tone and melody, PUREST OF PAIN has released a lyric video for the second single, "The Solipsist". "Solipsis" was seven years in the making, from the writing process up to the final mastering to launching a successful online crowdfunding campaign on IndieGoGo (raising over 18,000 euros), along with increasing its funds through live performances, which saw PUREST OF PAINopen for such bands as OPETH, TEXTURES, SUICIDE SILENCE, UNEARTH and ATTACK ATTACK! plus an unforgettable slot at Wacken Open Air in 2014. 

The effort contains 14 tracks of brutality blended with groove and emotion produced by Bechtold with recording done at Mantis Audio Studio (DELAIN) and mastering by Jens Bogren (OPETH, ARCH ENEMY, SOILWORK). Bechtold comments: "'Solipsis' is a guitar-oriented record. It has been recorded as organic as possible: partly at home, partly at Mantis Audio Studio. The song 'E.M.D.R.' is written by fellow guitarist Michael van Eck. All the other songs were summoned by myself. 

The lyrics are written by vocalist J.D. Kaye. And even though the music is at times technical and challenging, it's undeniably driven by relentless groove, enhanced by hugely melodic passages, wonderful tone and moments of ambient clarity." The CD and vinyl versions of "Solipsis" have slightly altered artwork. Bechtold was responsible for its concept and bass player Frank van Leeuwen designed and finalized the covers.

THE NEW DEAL a project founded in UK

THE NEW DEAL a project founded by UK Oi pioneers Cockney Rejects frontman Jeff Turner and Swedish boogie rock frontman Sulo Karlsson (The Crunch, Diamond Dogs) have released their first single & video for 'Canning Town Beach', on March 10th via Misty Recordings. 

The video can be viewed here: 


'Canning Town Beach' sounds like nothing you would expect these gentlemen would sound together, it's like a postcard from a forgotten London a distant cousin to Ray Davies “Waterloo Sunset”, the roughness of Ian Dury’s “new boots and panties” and the harmonies of the early Small Faces on Carnaby Street. Even if these boys are brought up on early glam and Punkrock you wouldn’t be surprised if the recording date of 'Canning Town Beach' would say 1968. 
The song 'Canning Town Beach' was produced by Kevin Porée. 


THE NEW DEAL is Jeff Turner (Cockney Rejects) Sören Sulo Karlsson (The Crunch, Diamond Dogs) Sören Sulo Karlsson says: "To have that organic sound in the year of 2018 my friends, that’s a New Deal !!".
