Released: March 11, 2016
Cardiknox a duo from New York City, recently released their LP Portrait and it is a mix of disco, dance pop and synth. If you like Marina and the Diamonds, Chvrches or even Sky Fierra you will definitely enjoy this album. Though a duo, Cardiknox creates such a huge sound that completes its lyrically honesty. The song, “Shadowboxing” chronicles a relationship, and fighting for someone and musically captures the moment perfectly, making listeners like you and me able to not only picture but also feel what they went through or trying to convey. Their vocalist, has such a huge voice that compliments their sound very well. The two are signed to Warner Brothers, who have artist like Echosmith, I believe with an up and coming artist like Cardiknox, that they would compliment Echosmith very well on any upcoming tour they may have. There is not much to say about the album, the music speaks for itself. Their immense honesty speaks for itself. I would definitely, check them out because they definitely have that “it” factor!

Resident Metal Head, Matt Weitzel, was fortunate enough to get a two for one deal at the last stop on the first leg of I The Breather’s farewell tour, and got to chat with another hometown hero, Baltimore based Metal powerhouse, Fire In Elysium, as they were one of the opening acts for the night. Matt got the chance to discuss FIE’s upcoming album, the state of the Baltimore Music Scene, and the prospect of opening up for another Maryland Metal band, I The Breather, who have been able to live their dream for one of their last shows as a band, and what that means to them.
