Rockshots Records: Prog Metal DESOURCE Shares New Single “Sheepdogs” ft. Monuments Drummer Mike Malyan
New EP “Ambition” Coming September 4, 2020
Italian progressive metal band Desource have unleashed a lyric video for their new single “Sheepdogs” featuring Monuments drummer Mike Malyan. The track is taken from their forthcoming EP “Ambition” due out September 2020 via Rockshots Records.
Watch and listen to the lyric video HERE.
Regarding the new single “Sheepdogs”, the band had this to say:
“‘Sheepdogs’ is one of the craziest and certainly heaviest songs on the whole EP. It involves unusual jazzy chords and insane patterns. It has been inspired by TDEP, Meshuggah, Decapitated but also ARCHITECTS and generally modern metalcore such as early Northlane. A short but deadly cocktail of different elements!”
After the release of the debut album “Dirty Happiness” (2013) and sharing the stage with acts such as ARCHITECTS, NORTHLANE, COMEBACK KID, PROTEST THE HERO, MONUMENTS, Desource returns with their 5 track EP “Ambition”, which features world-renown drummer Mike Malyan (MONUMENTS, DISPERSE, THE ALGORITHM) who has taken care of all the drums for the release.
Guitarist Edoardo Casini adds:
“‘Ambition’, as the title explains is a very ambitious record. It’s way more technical, progressive and dense than our debut album “Dirty Happiness”. It’s really a step forward in every direction both musically and lyrically. There are also so many genres combined in the songs such as Mathcore, Djent, Progressive Metal, Metalcore, Rock, Grind.”
“Ambition” will be released on September 4th, 2020 via Rockshots Records.

DESOURCE arises from the ashes of the metalcore band MY SWEET NIGHTMARE, whose inception dates back in 2007, when all the original members were still under the age of 18, and progressively evolved over the years through numerous line-up and stylistic changes.
All the experiences collected by each member of the band, past and present, shaped the identity of the project, and obtaining inspiration by bands such as KILLSWITCH ENGAGE, POISON THE WELL, ARCHITECTS, DARKEST HOUR, DEFTONES, PERIPHERY, MESHUGGAH, a very balanced mixture of Metalcore, Progressive Metal, New School Hardcore, and Alternative Rock came out as a result: the sound of DESOURCE was born, and time was ready to work on a debut album.
After the release of the long-awaited debut LP “DIRTY HAPPINESS” via This Is Core Records in September 2013, which gained very positive feedback by reviewers and fans all over the country, the band has had the chance to share the stage with many important acts such as ARCHITECTS, STRAY FROM THE PATH, NORTHLANE, MORE THAN LIFE, COMEBACK KID, XIBALBA, PROTEST THE HERO, MONUMENTS, DESTRAGE, THE CONTORTIONIST, THE SAFETY FIRE, LIES OF NAZCA, HUMAN IMPROVEMENT PROCESS, along with many others.
Currently, the band decided to take some time off to assemble a new line up and to work on a new release, a 5 track EP called “Ambition”, produced by the band and features many guest artists starting with world-renown drummer Mike Malyan (MONUMENTS, DISPERSE, THE ALGORITHM) who has taken care of all the drums for the release.
