Ben Parcell, one of Bridlington’s most famous pop-folk performers, has released his third full-length album, which is available for free download at Bandcamp (link here). More than a cover album, “Cover Stories Vol. 1″ is a homage to artists who have influenced, supported and given advice to Parcell. Quoting the man himself: » I think it’s important to recognise local and roots music as we live in an age where the mainstream is mostly interested in chart music and the X Factor. While I wish all the best for artists who choose to take the talent show route, there are many local artists with amazing talents and superior songwriting skills, who don’t get that mainstream broadcast, but deserve it equally. I’ve been lucky enough to be granted permission by all of the artists on my album.« Like East-Yorkshire-based Edwina Hayes, who says: » A tireless supporter of local music, Ben has been an active participant in the East Yorkshire acoustic scene for several years now and I’m very honoured he has chosen to cover one of my songs.«

Along with Edwina‘s, “Cover Stories Vol. 1″ features songs from Chris Helme (of the Seahorses), Ryan Spendlove, Sam McKie, Rob Bywater, Alastair Artingstall, Sophie Madeleine, Joe McCorriston and Mikee J. Reds.

Parcell will be performing the cover album live on The Fox’s Den Radio Show, Vixen 101 FM on Friday 25th April from 9 pm. And if you’d like to attend one of his shows, he’s the monthly resident artist at The Funny Onion, Bridlington, on the first Friday of every month.

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , on 10th April 2014 by Nico Solheim-Davidson

Valkyrian Festival, which is in aid of Rape Crisis, has another three brilliant bands to this year’s bill. This year’s Valkyrian Festival already boasts a number of talented bands from both the UK and Europe, including Scottish black metal royalty Cnoc An Tursa, as well as Scarborough-based instrumental progressive death outfit Bharghest, as well as the more symphonic sounding Aonia, Azylya and Divided We Fall alongside the thrashtastic Reign of Fury and Dutch powerhouse Ex Libris, who boast Xandria’s new vocalist Dianne Van Giersbergen amongst their ranks.

Added to the final day of the festival are Spanish gothic metallers Tears Of Martyr. Having started as a doom metal band, the band’s sound soon developed in something darker featuring a lot of the key elements found in their music now. Tears Of Martyr have in the past opened for the likes of Epica, Draconian and Dark Tranquillity. Their next album, Tales, is set for release on 26th April 2014 through Massacre Records.

Announced alongside Tears Of Martyr are the festival’s special guests for this year Kent-based rabid thrash/death metallers Wretched Soul. Hailed as “a rising star in the underground thrash metal scene” by Musicosis, the quartet are a fine addition to the festival. The band comment:

Wretched Soul are very excited to be performing at Valkyrian Festival 2014 and to once again be sharing a festival stage with our good friends, Reign of Fury, alongside Bharghest and so many other great bands. Good cause, great crowd. It’s cool to be playing Bridlington again as well, which is one of the most metal towns we’ve played so far! See you there!
