Music Video: Havok -“From The Cradle To The Grave”

Posted by SeanB on Friday, March 29, 2013 at 9:22 AM (PST)

imgresDenver thrash maniacs Havok have released a new music video for their song “From The Cradle To The Grave.”  The video was filmed by Roy Warner in Detroit during the band’s recent tour with Skeletonwitch, and the song is taken from their EP called Point Of No Return and released under Candlelight Records.

To check out the video click right here.

When asked about the lyrics and theme of “From The Cradle To The Grave,” Havok vocalist/guitarist Dave Sanchez stated:

‘From The Cradle To The Grave’ is about America’s first serial killer, H.H. Holmes. In the late 1800s, in Chicago, Holmes built a hotel specifically with murder in mind. It included doors that opened up to brick walls, staircases that lead to nowhere, and one-way rooms that once you entered, you never came out. He was a religious man and firmly believed that since he was born, the Devil was at his side. That being said, bang your head.”

Havok are about to embark on a short tour with Goatwhore and The Casualties which you can find dates/venues and all the rest for with the video.

Absu announce 26 city North American tour

Posted by SeanB on Thursday, January 31, 2013 at 3:49 PM (PST)

absutour2013Texas based mythological occult metal group Absu have announced a special North American tour called The North American Connexus Conjuration.  The band will be rolling through 26 cities starting April 5, 2012 and concluding May 4th.  The band will be playing two full sets of music covering their entire 20 year career.

For a list of dates and venues click right here.

This will mark the band’s first tour since the 2010 release of the band’s seventh album Abzu.  Vocalist and drummer Proscriptor had the following to say about the tour:

“Since the release of our latest recording, ‘Abzu’, the response has been extremely vehement and now is the perfect moment to commemorate the album’s essence throughout North America. We purposely waited until the timing was ideal to embark on this journey, as we shall contaminate the communities with our craft of mythological occult metal. We’re attempting to divide the concerts into two sections: the first act will showcase songs spanning from our entire discography, as the second act will focus on Phase Two from the album ‘Tara: The Cythrául Klan’s Scrutiny’. For the past couple of years, many of ABSU’s followers have requested specified songs from this chapter of ‘Tara’, so it is our aspiration to give the people what they want.”

Album Review: Daylight Dies – A Frail Becoming

Posted by Morgan Y Evans - Walking Bombs on Sunday, November 4, 2012 at 7:54 PM (PST)

Candlelight Records is lucky to have a band as good as Daylight Dies on their roster. This group is so consistent and embody why metal can be so much more than a cliché  small brained, violent party soundtrack. For anyone who has ever experienced true loss or the types who are up early in the cold morning to reflect, for those who need time to themselves to center their thoughts, Daylight Dies is your soundtrack. I actually save them for when I am in a certain mood and no other band will do. If I listen to them casually it is awesome but soon pulls me completely into murky, if bleakly beautiful, thoughts. It is all to tempting to live in that place.

The best moments of LOST TO THE LIVING were a new high water mark for the band, and it is great to hear that they have not stopped pushing themselves on A FRAIL BECOMING. The  Jens Bogren (Opeth, Devin Townsend) mix is near perfect. Everything that is great about Daylight Dies is still present; crushing, My Dying Bride snail-paced guitar, dynamic and chilling yet warm quieter classical passages, death metal growls that convey actual deep/difficult emotions, intoxicating solos that will make you fucking sob if you drink too much wine. Their albums should be part of every metal collection.

“This is right where I want to be musically, with lots of room for dynamics and expressive variety. Tobias and Jørgen have really added to the organic vibe I was going for and have contributed to the overall feel with their fantastic musicianship. And to have Devin, Jeff, Einar and Heidi adding their special moments, I am very privileged to be able to work with such a talented group of people. I really feel this is some of my most inspired work yet.”
