A mammoth congratulations to Danish thrashers ESSENCE for winning the Rock the Nations Awards 2012.
is this a big deal? Hell, it's more than your average bar-band battle
of the bands gig. As the winner, Essence earned a worldwide record deal
with Noise Art records as well as a booking contract with Rock the Nation.
Bad ass! As a huge, huge fan of their Ultimhate debut Lost in
Violence, I couldn't be more excited. Apparently, Essence's new album is
already in the can and will be released in early 2013!
hoping these fortunate circumstances offer the band a wider reach around
the globe, especially for the accessibility of a physical product (I
only have my obligately cherished MP3s of the Lost in Violence album).
Also, I'm ecstatic about the idea that such a wider reach will bring
them to the US.
If you're interested, check out my review of Lost in Violence here as well as my Essence interview here.
Now, for God's sake, please release a sample of the new stuff! NOW!!! Or I can wait. Whatever.
