Ontario rockers Abandoned Souls have premiered a lyric video for their song “Make It Last.”

You can check out the lyric video for “Make It Last” over at Metal Nation Radio.

The song is the title track off of the EP that Abandoned Souls released last April.

The band comments on the EP:

“We want to give the fans a pure and unfiltered listening experience, one that reflects us and where we are at in our musical journey and our lives. It is as much a reflection of who we are as musicians as it is of us as people. The philosophy behind “’Make It Last’ is a reference to always trying to make the good times in life last as long as you can. As much as possible, try to live every minute like it could be your last…Time is fleeting, so…Make It Last!”

Why Living Colour’s Chris Cornell tribute is maybe my favorite

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Wednesday, May 24, 2017 at 6:07 PM (PST)

I’m a late eighties and super early 90’s kid for the most part at heart – some 80’s new wave and 00’s Deftones type stuff aside. Today I was revisiting Living Colour‘s excellent Time’s Up release, perhaps my favorite of their records. It so captured various rising sounds of an era. People forget the band worked with everyone from Don Byron to Mick Jagger to Little Richard and were so much more than an easy to pigeonhole hard rock band. They went 2x platinum with Vivid and have other great records but to me Time’s Up is kind of their Incesticide – full of characteristic examples of their range and some popular cuts for die hard fans but overshadowed by other records.

With the exception of Soulside (who never broke into mainstream conversations) and mighty Bad Brains, who laid the groundwork but didn’t get their full due until much later despite influencing everyone from Jane’s Addiction to Scream and Nirvana, there was really nothing that sounded at all like rowdier Living Colour except some of the rhythm tracks on Appetite For Destruction or, again, some of the frenetic early funk-a-fied alt rock of Jane’s, Faith No More or RHCP. That sort of funky side has all but been whitewashed out of a lot of indie rock and punk these days but the freak flag is still flown by, say, Stephen Bruner/Thundercat or a lesser known band like Joey Eppard’s 3, for example. Plus, it is always awesome to see black men owning rock n roll as a genre since they are the ones who really created it first. I saw Corey Glover live at O+ Festival in my city of Kingston a year or so back and the fluidity of his vocals even now was astounding.

Living Colour’s best material reminds us of a time when bands were unafraid to be themselves and find different, but like minded peers, each band thus becoming underscored as special for their similarities and unique qualities. Seattle grunge was also very much like that. Seeing the Living Colour version of “Blow Up The Outside World” really moved me. The band do their own interpretation but the love is so strong for the material, the moment they are sharing with fans and for the departed Cornell. The best covers are usually when a band does their own caring but unique take, from Moby’s take on “New Dawn Fades” to Dax Riggs’ Leonard Cohen covers to Macy Gray’s jazzy version of a Metallica song . Heck, Robert Trujillo quoted “Black Hole Sun” in a section of a patented Metallica-style bass solo to nod to Soundgarden and the world’s huge loss, for example.

Soundgarden were so special because they wore their Sab and Beatles influences and didn’t pretend they were God’s gift sent from a void without giving credit, but they forged a unique sound from the clay of their roots. I wish more bands today still cared enough to try to do that.

There is something about this Living Colour version of a not as obvious choice like “Outshined” though that brings the immediacy of the loss and also the bittersweet but beautiful nature of this life we are all in to a head. The crowd singing along so strongly to a lesser known hit should move even the staunchest black metal snob or blog hipster with a heart of entitled stone. Please watch it and remember that music can make us all family.

Honestly. whenever I see Byzantine news I get a little warm feeling of stoked-ness inside. I’m just glad they are finally getting their due more and are back in action so strongly. What a fuckin’ legit rad band.

For a first preview of new album The Cicada Tree, a new video for the single “New Ways to Bear Witness” (featuring a cameo by Skeletonwitch’s Dustin Boltjes, as well as ex-Byzantine drummer Matt Wolfe) has been launched online. Directed/edited by Holly Siders, the filming of “New Ways to Bear Witness” resulted in Chris “OJ” Ojeda (vocals, rhythm guitar) suffering a concussion. OJ comments about the experience:

“So, we came up with an idea of having our old drummer do a cameo appearance in the music video. Matt Wolfe left the band right before we signed with Metal Blade and had occupied the drum seat for the last 12 years. We felt it was a perfect opportunity to let fans know that we still love Matt and he’s still welcome and important to our band. What’s the best way to have an ousted band member make a cameo? To hit me with a vehicle, of course!
We set up the scene and did about 5 or 6 takes of Wolfe hitting me with the vehicle and me rolling off the vehicle. I didn’t know until we wrapped shooting the next day that something was wrong and had a very hard time driving home. I contacted an ER doctor friend of mine who told me I needed to come see him ASAP. After a CT Scan and an EKG, he let me know I had a standard sports type concussion from repeatedly hitting my head during the video shoot. I got 3 days off work and a cool story out of it! Rock!”

BardSpec release “Gamma” music video

Posted by longhairedpoet on Tuesday, May 16, 2017 at 4:36 PM (PST)

Enslaved’s Ivar Bjørnson’s project BardSpec has released a music video for the track “Gamma.”

“Gamma” comes off of BardSpec’s forthcoming album Hydrogen due out June 23 via Norse Music.

Comments Bjørnson of the band’s latest single:

‘Gamma’ is a meditation on the magic of science, or perhaps the science of magic. The mysteries of the atom and nuclear physics have fascinated me deeply as long as I can remember. Enlightened humans have known for thousands of years that the concept of ‘god’ dwells within the corporal being, and with the atom bomb the proof was definite…to me at least. As scientist in charge [American theoretical physicist and professor of physics Julius Robert] Oppenheimer said, watching the first test atom bomb go off: ‘I have become Shiva: Destroyer Of Worlds.’ The other aspect of radiation is its communicative powers; of carrying information over enormous distances. We learn things about the universe and its early days from watching bursts of Gamma Ray make its way through the universe. Musically speaking it is one of the heavier songs, which I managed to sneak in a little Sigur Ros tribute into as well.

Check out the video for “Gamma” here.

The Interbeing release new single “Deceptive Signal”

Posted by longhairedpoet on Monday, May 15, 2017 at 7:49 PM (PST)

Danish metallers The Interbeing have released their latest single “Deceptive Signal.”

The song comes off the band’s forthcoming album Among the Amorphous which is due out June 23 via Long Branch Records.

Singer Dara Corcoran on “Deceptive Signal”:
“Deceptive Signal is the 2nd track on our coming concept album about The Interbeing’s struggle with his creators. In this song The Interbeing hears a signal and is drawn to it but it turns out to be a trap made by his creators. To realize the visual storyline we contacted the gifted Jeb Hardwick and flew him in to Copenhagen to shoot the ambitious video. The countless hours playing in a green screen studio and postproduction really paid off. Jeb did an amazing job creating this other dimension with us and The Interbeing in it.”

Check out the video for “Deceptive Signal” here.

“Bear The Cross” from Australia’s In Malice’s Wake will quite keenly thrash your head clear off your shoulders. The band have a sole mission and that is to thrash your soul. This video clip was a great find in our inbox this morning and a big “Hell to the yeah!” goes out to this band for starting out our weekend properly.

Australia? Are they going to call us poofters and try to fight us or something like Destroyer 666? We certainly hope not, because for now we are really enjoying the shit out of this and so will fans of Venom and Slayer to the max. We also feel very obliged to toast a great Australian metal effort when we hear it these days, especially in the wake of the idiocy of Donald Trump trying to make us at odds with Australia lately for zero fucking good reason.

Anyway, enjoy this onslaught! If you don’t know them, you really should!!!

Footage of Burton C. Bell with Delain at The Whisky

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Wednesday, May 10, 2017 at 5:36 PM (PST)

Head to Blabbermouth here to check out some cool footage of legendary industrial-metal vocalist Burton C. Bell rocking out on their collab “Where Is The Blood” with the bad asses in Delain at the Whisky A Go Go. Burton has done plenty of cool guest spots over the years from Ministry to Soulfly, but the one with Delain remains a favorite of many. The article also confirms that the Fear Factory break up rumor is unfounded, thankfully. And here is the original collab below, if you’ve never heard that.

NY’s Candiria have released a fittingly precise yet disorienting video for the amped up title track of their latest record (and Metal Blade debut) While They Were Sleeping. The song contains plenty of the band’s shifting rhythms and staccato insanity paired with some melodic elements. One of my all time favorite groups, so of course I’m gonna tell you to watch this right away.

Islander release video for “Casket”

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Thursday, May 4, 2017 at 11:02 AM (PST)

Nu groove punks Islander are my favorite younger band in the rock scene going on a few years now. They just fire on all cylinders, don’t play the seventeenth stepped on version of breakdown core you’ve heard way too many times and manage to put their own spin on any genre they dip their fingers in. Each of their releases works with the next but also has distinct characteristics to mark that era.

The band have just released a new video for “Casket”, the last clip from recent speaker buster Power Under Control. You can watch the black and white clip, filmed on NASA grounds, HERE.

My only issue with the video is that I can’t imagine singer Mikey actually burying anyone like that because he is a really nice dude! Haha.

The video comes as ISLANDER prepare for some intimate club shows before joining the ‘Summer Of Serenity Tour’ alongside Korn, Stone Sour and Baby Metal. Check it out!

BTBAM reveal live video for “Turn on the Darkness”

Posted by Metal Riot on Monday, April 24, 2017 at 12:24 PM (PST)

Between the Buried and Me will release their new DVD/Blu-ray, Coma Ecliptic Live, via Metal Blade Records, in association with Good Fight Entertainment. The concert, which features the band performing their latest album, Coma Ecliptic, in its entirety, was filmed live on location October 4th, 2016 at The Observatory North Park in San Diego, CA. For a preview of the release, a live video of “Turn on the Darkness” can now be viewed below.

Bassist Dan Briggs comments: “The genesis of the ‘Coma Ecliptic’ filming was based around capturing the look and feel of the show our lighting director Chris Hill produced for the full album set. It’s such an important record for us and our progression as a band and the visual representation captures the moods of our tragic tale so well. It’s the perfect way to wrap up the last two years we’ve been living with this album day in and day out!”
