    Remnants – Finest progressive rock

    Here’s a song from deep within the trenches of pandemic life, from across the Atlantic Ocean. A prog rock/metal symphony of heartbreak; a deep and melancholy musical journey. Composed and performed by German musicians Nadine de Macedo, Sebastian Schleicher and Ben Ollig, with lyrics and vocals written and performed by American musician Rich Brewer. You can listen to our new song at Bandcamp and SoundCloud. Thanks for the collaboration!

    The Verge is Back In Town

    Right after finishing Someone Else’s Song, my alternative rock internet band The Verge thought about our comeback. The title of our new song couldn’t have been more programmatic: Back In Town. It’s a self-deprecating punk rock / melodic hardcore song full of power and excitement.
