Neon Coven, the new industrial rock band from Los Angeles, CA, released its debut EP Risen last February 1st via New Ocean Media. Recorded in Hollywood, the EP was produced by Jacob Bunton (of Lynam fame). The band is comprised of Anthony Montemarano on vocals, Ace Von Johnson on guitar, Kyle Cunningham on drums and the aforementioned Jacob Bunton on bass.
The EP consists of 4 tracks ranging from songs about survival and balance to emotionally charged anthems.
The album's title Risen is a dedication to the fallen and broken who refuse to back down and give up on their dreams. "The idea behind music is to connect, create and inspire" states frontman Montemarano. "Between life and death, we are always riding the quantum edge."
"These songs reflect on the uncertainties of life and coming to grips with our own mortality" adds Bunton. "The only guarantee we have in life is that one day it will end. It's up to each one of us to create our own destiny and live life to it's fullest. The world is full of ups and downs, but I've always believed in the Rocky Horror quote 'if you can dream it, you can be it'."
Musicwise, Neon Coven abandoned much of the ethos of the tradition of heavy rock to create an intellectual and theoretical sound, linked to an emphasis on anthemic, synth-heavy dance-rock and melodic vocals.
