After listening to ‘The 5th Sun’, I got its meaning: this is music you can use to escape reality and emerge in your own fantasy world(s). As far as the MONKEY3 goes, it is a Swiss band and this record is its fourth, containing influences from bands like Porcupine Tree, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin. The album is already out in a couple of European countries, but most of them will receive it after 30 October.
So, how does ‘The 5th Sun’ sound like? A few songs seem to have a similar recipe: the track starts off stronger with more guitars and drums used in a rather progressive manner and after a few minutes, it seems like the music has ...Read More

Here is my confession: I love Rock’n’Roll, Glam and Sleaze metal! I also love the fact that there are more than a few bands out there willing to revive the old school spirit with a new polish. Most of them come from the Nordic countries (Sweden, Finland), however, I managed to find a very talented band coming all the way from Greece. They are called Junkyard 69. Last night I had a fun conversation with one of their members, Phoenix, and I found out some very interesting stuff, so enjoy this interview and listening to a band who shows potential:
Alexandra: First of all, could you introduce yourself briefly and tell us your role in the band?
Phoenix: I’m Phoenix and I play rhythm guitar in Junkyard 69.
How did you guys meet and decide to form a band?
The four of us were childhood friend...Read More
