In Mourning release ‘Yields of Sand’ official lyric video

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Thursday, September 19, 2019 at 3:17 PM (PST)

Garden of Storms is sure to be one of the finest offerings of 2019. Let’s just say I have been anticipating it a lot more than releases by way bigger bands. IN MOURNING are one of my favorite metal bands operating currently, so talented and able to squeeze real emotion and innovation out of some familiar forms. They just write tremendously cohesive albums and songs and have never disappointed. Loving the new tune ‘Yields of Sand’ which charms and challenges with emotional battle filled allegory and paints vivid pictures of reflections over music that showcases proggy, death and super intricate melodic elements; many of the aspects of the group that fans enjoy.

Press release for the new album follows:

Sweden’s melodic, progressive death/doom metal masters IN MOURNING, will release a new studio album titled “Garden Of Storms” on October 4th worldwide via Agonia Records. Shortly following the album’s release, the band will embark on a European tour with Omnium Gatherum.

Hailed by many as the heir to Opeth’s melodeath throne, IN MOURNING was formed in the Swedish woods in the year 2000. Since then, the band has evolved, striving to refine its sound to what it is today. Musically, the group blends a broad spectrum of influences into a foundation of melodic death metal. Thrusting from doomy metal-riffs, blasting drumbeats and deep growling vocals, to calm breezes of clean flowing melodies and harmonies.

“Garden Of Storms” features seven new tracks replete with artwork from Kristian Wåhlin (Bathory, At The Gates, King Diamond).

Of the video, drummer Dave Haley comments:

Pittsburgh metallers Signs of the Swarm have released their newest lyric video for their track “Tempting Death.” The track features Tom Barber of Chelsea Grin.

The track was released via Slam Worldwide and comes off the band’s forthcoming album Vital Deprivation. The album is due out October 11 via Unique Leader Records. The 10 track album was recorded, mixed, and mastered by Carson Slovak and Grant McFarland (August Burns Red, Rivers of Nihil, The Last Ten Seconds of Life) at Think Loud Studios in York, Pa.

Signs of the Swarm said of the release:

“We are pleased to present our third album via Unique Leader Records, Vital Deprivation. We began writing for the album shortly after TDOE was released. From the beginning we had a sound in mind that was more aggressive and fast paced, but equally as brutal as our previous releases. What makes this album different from our past is that we wrote with pleasing ourselves in mind first and foremost. We’ve covered a lot of ground in just under 40 minutes. Some of the album may be what you expect to hear from us, and hopefully some may not. David Simonich is a powerhouse of a vocalist bringing a whole new range of motion to the band’s spectrum. His lyrical content and cadence bring a more emotional and poetic energy to Signs while retaining the aggression he’s become known for. We’d like to thank Carson Slovak & Grant McFarland for helping us to shape this album into a coherent message from beginning to end. Thank you to our fans who have supported us relentlessly, this is the first of many to come. Please enjoy Vital Deprivation.”

Signs of the Swarm will hit the road this Fall as part of the Disentomb-headlined Bloodletting North America tour alongside Visceral Disgorge, Continuum, Organectomy, and Mental Cruelty.

I am a big Killswitch Engage fan and will always have a place for them in my heart of moshing hearts. I have fond memories of seeing the band live with various line-ups from Ozzfest to touring with Disturbed to Jesse’s first show back at NEMHC (that was insane) and more. It is hard to say who is my favorite vocalist for the band as my two favorite records from the band Disarm the Descent and The End of Heartache each feature a different lead singer. I think Jesse has the edge for me lyrically but there is something about Howard’s big melodic voice I always really loved. No shade on Jesse’s singing though, which is also the force propelling many anthems.

Suffice to say, “The Signal Fire” track from the band’s new album bringing Howard and Jesse together for fans again was anticipated! I don’t feel let down. The video is great and shows a lot of love plus the songs high speed intro makes me think the band had a lot of fun touring with Anthrax. I have been jamming the promo for Atonement and am glad now the public can have as much fun with the record as I have. I coulda used a little more of that big melodic Howard voice on this someplace, but overall the song showcases both of them well -if understandably leaning more towards the current (and OG) singer Jesse.

I know y’all are gassed up at Slipknot being #1 right now but can we get KSE to #2?

“This video is a demonstration of solidarity and unity,” says Leach. “This is for the fans and this is our testimony to all who see this video. In these times we live in, I believe this is an important message – not just for us as a band and our fans but for all of humanity. This is a call for compassion and understanding! There is strength in unity.”

Leach continues, “The making of the video was a great experience as well. Just all of us guys hanging out and having fun together. Ian McFarland did a hell of a job capturing the vibe and energy of our performances.”

“It was another silly day at the office,” says Jones. “Good food, lots of wrestling talk, and hanging with the boys is a great way to spend the day and get a little work done. Shout out to Ian McFarland for making everything painless at the shoot. The day was all smiles – with a hint of metal.”

Chicago metallers Snow Burial earlier this month released a music video for their song “Sever the Bloodline” over at Decibel.

“Sever the Bloodline” comes off of Snow Burial’s upcoming album Ostrava due out on September 20 via Prosthetic Records.

About the video, SNOW BURIAL frontman, Ben Bowman comments, “This video was conceived, directed and edited by Derek Cox of Polymyth Studios. He’s been a long time colleague of Nick [Delehanty]’s and was inspired by the song’s dark imagery. The song itself is born from the despair bred by the wild inequality and greed we see daily and invokes some rather violent themes to make a point. We’re hardly ever literal, but the extremity of the sound and words have intent.”

Head over to Decibel to stream “Sever the Bloodline.” You can also check out the album art and track list for Ostrava here.

Diamond Head release “The Sleeper”

Posted by longhairedpoet on Sunday, August 18, 2019 at 11:18 AM (PST)

British heavy metal icons Diamond Head released a lyric video for their song “The Sleeper” on August 8.

“The Sleeper” is the fourth single off of the band’s latest album The Coffin Train, which came out in May via Silver Lining Music.

Of the track, vocalist Rasmus Bom Andersens comments, “It’s such a big sounding track that it almost takes you on a cinematic journey. ‘The Sleeper’ is a follow up to ‘Silence’ off the last record. We had fans who loved the orchestral elements and I wanted to give them some more. It was inspired by a favorite Sci-fi movie from my childhood.”

Adds guitarist Brian Tatler, “Starting life in 2016 with the main riff, I decided to demo it and see if I could make it into a song. With a bit of work this grew into a powerful monster with Ras’ lyrics inspired by the 1984 film Dune. It’s very moody and dynamic with brilliant orchestration.”

California death metallers Arkaik have signed with The Artisan Era to release their newest album, due out next year.

Ahead of next year’s release, Arkaik have released a lyric video for their song “Supernal Flame.”

After the release of Nemethia in 2017, the band has added new guitarists Cris Portugal (Enslave the Creation) and Alex Haddad (live for Vale of Pnath, Dessiderium) plus new drummer Nathan Bigelow (Singularity) who had previously played live for Alterbeast and Virvum. While a new bass player had been added, the band is currently working on a permanent replacement to be announced when the time comes.

Arkaik will be touring this fall with Beyond Creation, Fallujah, and Equipoise on the Algorythm North America tour from September 20th to October 22nd.

Arkaik vocalist Jared comments on signing with The Artisan Era:

“It’s definitely a massive honor to be a part of The Artisan Era family. They have consistently been putting out forward-thinking, top-tier progressive metal and we feel like its the perfect fit for Arkaik. The enthusiasm from supporters of the label is also extremely humbling to be a part of. It’s really exciting for us because its also a new era in the band, so couldn’t be more stoked to be working with them now.
We’re still pretty deep into writing the next album, but we wanted to put out a new song with this announcement. We picked a song that we felt would be a good fit for a single and went to our trusted audio engineering wizard Zack Ohren in Oakland. He engineered and mixed the song and we got our friend Mendel bij de Leij (ex-Aborted) to master the track. They were a perfect combo to be working on this song and they nailed it.

Lyrically the song ties all our previous concept albums together into one song. It acts as an overview of the entire journey of Cyrix, through the last three albums, up until now, and points to where we are going next. We’ve never done a stand-alone single like this, so I felt like it would be a cool opportunity to tell the story as best I can in one song. If you want to learn more about our history and concept albums, check out the podcast I did with Steel Legion Podcast here. You can follow the Arkaik Street Team Group on Facebook here.

Thanks to everyone who has been supporting us through the years, Arkaik wouldn’t exist today if it wasn’t for you. Cheers!”

Sin Shake Sin signs to Sumerian Records

Posted by longhairedpoet on Saturday, August 17, 2019 at 3:54 PM (PST)

Nashville, Tennessee hard rocker Stacy Hogan has signed his newest project – Sin Shake Sin – to Sumerian Records earlier this week.

Hogan had this to say of the signing:

“Ash [Avildsen, owner of Sumerian Records] called me up, said he really loved the music and that he was excited to help take things to the next level.. I’m excited to be a part of the Sumerian roster along with so many other artists that I enjoy and respect. We share a common vision and Sumerian provides the freedom to cultivate that vision.”

Sin Shake Sin have also released a music video for the track “Nobody’s Gonna Save My Soul.” Of the video Hogan says:

“The video involves a cult-like congregation who’ll stop at nothing to gain followers, only to reveal they aren’t who they seem. This is commentary on those throughout my life who have went out of their way to judge people only for the purpose of distraction away from their own guilt. We see this every day on social media, which can also be like a cult.”

Portland, Oregon heavy metallers Silver Talon have premiered the playthrough for their track “Cold Embrace” over at Metal Insider.

“Cold Embrace” comes from the 2018 EP Becoming A Demon. “Cold Embrace” is filled with tension, borrowing from Bach’s Prelude in D, which is further intertwined with their own riffs and outfitted with original vocal melodies. The band emphasizes the slow development of the song:

“Wyatt’s vocal delivery on the chorus is some of his best work to date. If listeners can invest their time and attention into a song that doesn’t deliver a climax within the first 60 seconds, and sort of just experience the song, then I think we’ll have them hooked. It’s sort of like a John Carpenter slow burn kind of thing.”

UK death metallers Venom Prison have shared a new video interview with Eliran Kantor, the creator of their captivating album artwork on both Animus and Samsara.

The video was shot in Germany on Venom Prison’s recent European tour with Fit For An Autopsy; vocalist Larissa Stupar sat down with Eliran to discuss his work.

The band comment:

“We’ve met Eliran on tour and at festival art exhibitions over the past few years and have established a very productive working relationship. This time we decided to invite him to our Berlin show whilst on tour with Fit For An Autopsy to discuss the process of creating the album art for Samsara but also to speak about the importance of visual art within music, the difference to Eliran’s work for Animus and getting to see the original artwork for the first time.”

Monte Pittman releases “Changing of the Guard” video

Los Angeles guitarist Monte Pittman has released a video for his track “Changing of the Guard,” which comes off of last year’s Between The Space.

The video for “Changing of the Guard” was filmed by Rokker Dave and features Jimmy Duvall (bass) and Cody Duvall (drums).

Monte comments:

“The album ‘Between The Space’ is a heavy album that gets straight to the point as soon as it starts. The theme is about connection, alignment, and what divides those things. As always when I write, my goal is coming up with the material that fits in my live show. I did everything on these albums. I wrote it all, I played every instrument, I recorded it, and I mixed it. The only thing I didn’t do was the artwork (by Aaron Lea) and mastering (by Alan Douches). It was a challenge having so many tasks. It was a luxury being able to take the time and get everything just how I wanted it. It was a learning experience, and it was a lot of fun making it. The album ‘Better Or Worse’ is an acoustic album but it feels like a heavy album. The theme is about being attached to something or being unattached. It could be an idea or a thought process. The softest part of the album has the heaviest lyrics. It builds instrumentally as the album progresses. I wanted the tone of each track to be a little different from each other. ‘Better Or Worse’ and ‘Between The Space’ both mirror each other and they are polar opposites. The idea is to have something there for the people who like my heavy music, something for the people who like my acoustic music, and something for the people who like the variety of both.”

.gif from god release “sassafras manassas ass” music video

Richmond, Virginia noise-makers .gif from god have released their latest music video for their song “sassafras manassas ass.”

The track comes off the band’s upcoming album approximation_of_a_human, which will be released on September 27th.

The music video was done by artist Morta Sustain.

About the track, vocalist Mitchie says:

“The song is about running through darkness. More directly it’s about how hopeless and cyclical it feels to move through the world with debilitating anxiety that goes unaddressed; moving forward with no direction or intentionality. How can one hope to overcome their demons or circumstances without acknowledging the reality that they are faced with? Without others affirming that their reality is real and valid?”

Sofia, Bassist, adds:

“sassafras is a re-recording and modification of one of the first songs .gif ever recorded. I wasn’t in the band at the time but it was the first song I was taught after I joined. We never felt like it was done proper justice, and we’ve changed so much as a band since it was first written and initially released that it sounds wildly different now. We want to show people who’ve never heard of us before a song that still remains important to us, while hinting to our current fans how much we’ve changed before releasing material that bears almost no resemblance to previous .gif from god releases.”

Head over to Alternative Press to  check out “sassafras manassas ass.” .gif from god are also streaming, “no dude…he STILL likes to spray” via the Zegema Beach Records Zampler.

Australian rap-metallers The Weight of Silence released their latest track, “Green Is The New Black” earlier this week.

The track, which was released on July 17, features vocalist Danny Leal of Upon A Burning Body.

Dubbed “trap metal” in the press release and being associated with the likes of Attila, “Green Is The New Black,” is, you guessed it, about smoking weed. It’s also about getting a blow job on a plane. And then Danny is also there and has a lyric.

The Weight of Silence vocalist Jacob Pedersen explains the bands new direction for “Green is the New Black”, the debut single from their upcoming album:

“We’ve been really influenced as a group by some of the newer trap and rap sounds coming out at the moment and we’re blending that with the metal influence we’ve always had. We are also very honoured to have Danny Leal take a part in this and really bring a section in this already lively song to a new level. Upon A Burning Body’s music has been a big influence on us and you’ll hear that in this upcoming album release. You can expect heavy, hard hitting riffs with huge and heavy vocals, alongside moments with trapbeats and rap vocals.”

You can check out the video for “Green Is The New Black” here.
