The Great Discord release “The Aging Man” video

Posted by longhairedpoet on Thursday, May 21, 2015 at 5:05 PM (PST)

the-great-discord-band

Swedish metallers The Great Discord have released a video for their song “The Aging Man”.

“The Aging Man” comes from the band’s forthcoming album Duende which will come out on June 2 via Metal Blade Records.

The band had this to say about the “The Aging Man” video:

The video is a mix of a presentation of our band, and a visualization of the concept behind our song, The Aging Man. The idea is that a man, facing his mortality, struggles with his impending death, here personified by Fia’s stage persona. Acting as a sort of inverted Saint Peter, or Charon, she is a gatekeeper, a guide, challenging his thoughts and beliefs about what is going to happen, and forces him to face his demons and his regrets. The game of chess is a symbol for this struggle. Welcome to THE GREAT DISCORD.

Check out the “The Aging Man” video here.

KORPIKLAANI-Ensiferum-Tour

The drums sounded. The horns blew. Battle paint adorned, bladed weapons drawn, beer upon their breath, the tribesmen of Finland and their Norwegian allies charged through Chicago, laying waste to the those who sought to oppose them, raising their fists proudly in mutual purpose to those who joined them in the sounds and revelry of battle lust.

The Trolls zealously feasted upon the slain and fallen. The Forest Clan danced upon bloodied flesh and crippled bones. The Sword Bearers left nothing in the brutality of their crushing wake. All those who witnessed the carnage and what remained will surely remember the day Trollfest, Korpiklaani, and Ensiferum came marching through their town.

ArmoredSaint-WinHandsDown

Not a beaver reference or the idiots Jeb or W (Tweedle Dee and Dumb or perhaps Dumb and Dumber). Nope, I’m talking about mighty vocalist John Bush and his pals in Armored Saint. Bush in Armored even tops his killer Anthrax stuff, and pre-dates it.

Check out their new song premiere HERE via L.A. Weekly. “An Exercise In Debauchery” has big west coast metal drums, the character of living storytelling in the vocal delivery, a huge chorus and rubbery bass paired with big guitars than span classic and hard rock to thrash and funk influence in one song.

Armored Saint are also proud to be joining the legendary Saxon for a few select, high profile shows across the country starting in NYC tonight, May 12th, through May 30th. The group will also only be performing one, very special headlining date in the US this year and it’s in Las Vegas at Count’s Vamp’d Rock Bar and Grill on July 11th, so don’t miss out if you are in the area.

Armored Saint is frontman John Bush and bassist Joey Vera, guitarist Phil Sandoval and his brother, drummer Gonzo Sandoval and guitarist Jeff Duncan – often referred to as a West Coast Manowar but really a much more thrashing underground force who have kept their integrity for many years of classic releases, indomitable.

ARMORED SAINT Tour with Saxon dates are below.

Oakland’s doomiest sons, Secrets Of The Sky have nothing to fear in terms underground acceptance. The band’s already garnered critical acclaim for their past work and are set to return with Metal Blade release Pathways, a record that builds on their already formidable mix of styles with even more dynamics. “Angel In Vines” is very Type O meets Daylight Dies reminiscent to my ears, in the best way!  Waves of sound will hurl you across vast spaces and the new music video is a dance of life versus the toxic.

Elaborates guitarist Clayton Bartholomew, “For this video, we went back to director Andrew Nethery, who also did the video for the song ‘Decline’ from our first record, To Sail Black Waters. He did a great job for that video and was an easy guy to work with. For the ‘Angel In Vines’ video, we let him run with his own vision. The song itself relates to the loss of innocence, and he found an interesting analogy to express this same sentiment, while keeping the video abstract and not just giving away the premise of the song. We like that he was able to avoid cliché and the imagery he was able to capture is a definite work of art on its own.”

Album Review: Ensiferum – “One Man Army”

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Monday, April 20, 2015 at 12:45 PM (PST)

10987466_10152746461721309_5824125936396953232_n

Ensiferum‘s One Man Army is a melodic folk metal fan’s delight if you don’t mind higher end production with still gritty sounding guitar. That said, there is still a raw and very real attack to the material. Think at times of a trace of
Slaughter Of The Soul sped up through symphonic Helsinki bombast and warcry screams mixed with folk metal. A thirst for history, warmetal and spirited endeavors will be quenched but an at times thin guitar sound but you’ll also experience a lot more variety in material and even genre as the record progresses through epic to speed to folky dreams.

“Axe Of Judgement” gets things off to a determined gallop after the intro mood setter “March Of War”. Ensiferum play a lot of their strengths right on “Axe…” with a short but lightning lead, seeming black metal influence and speed paired with epic metal touches. “Heathen Horde” is one of the best songs from the band yet and would surely appeal to fans of Hammerfall or Turisas, easilly. The mid section quiet “traditional” part of the song is glorious while the drums thunder beneath spoken shouts and a riff that’d make Estonia’s Metsatoll jealous. Man, I’d kill to see those two live. “Lady Of The Slain” by Tyr comes to mind asanother recent battle field epic that kindles the spark of heroism in the heart of the epic metal fan in a similar way.

Behemoth video with Zev Deans for “Messe Noire” out now

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Friday, April 10, 2015 at 4:57 AM (PST)

behemoth-messenoire

Behemoth recently joined forces with director Zev Deans (youtube.com/panoramaprogramming) to compose a video for Messe Noire from The Satanist. The Brooklyn based director brings a visually dark and surreal atmosphere to a song and album that is one of Behemoth‘s most bleak. To add to the atmosphere, costumes were provided by amazing fashion designer, Sharon Toxic (toxicvision.bigcartel.com). The combination of these visual and auditory talents could not be more ideal.

Director Zev Deans adds: “The story of Lucifer’s fall, followed by his defiant rebirth, reminds me of Nergal’s own personal struggles of recent years. Like Lucifer, Behemoth has recovered from hardship, and they are stronger than ever. With Messe Noire, I was lucky enough to work with some of the most talented people in the genre. I owe the success of this project to the intense SACRIFICE that Sharon and the rest of team gave to this work.”

Behemoth front man Nergal comments: “It was actually our drummer Inferno’s idea to use Zev Deans. He showed me a PORTAL video that literally blew my fuckin’ mind! For a long time we’ve attempted to reach a new ground and artistically leave the comfort zone. “The Satanist” is THE record that challenges us on so many levels… and here we are, exploring new grounds with a video producer who is a genuine visionary! “Messe Noire” video surely adds new quality to our art and makes it even more transcendental… I am proud!”

Experience Messe Noire now HERE.

Along with the video, Behemoth has made a “Messe Noire” t-shirt available in their official web shop. Check out the design at behemoth-store.com.

Anaal Nathrakh make some of the most tortured and limitless music the UK has to offer, a roaring defiance of forms still with talons ripping out the dark hearts of black and )increasingly) industrial metal/ I’ve become a really big fans of the band and they are finally announcing stateside dates to support their recent all-killer, no-filler limb strewn riff fest battlefield Desideratum ( on Metal Blade).

While the inclusion of Incite and Secrets Of The Sky might seem like a mish mash of styles to some, all three of the bands are fairly criminally under-appreciated and this going to make for some phenomenal nights of metal madness.
