Epic metal quintet RISING recently announced its fourth album, Sword And Scythe, for release on October 26th via Indisciplinarian. Today, the band releases a brand-new music video for the album’s first single, Salted Earth, created by the band’s visual mastermind, vocalist Morten Grønnegaard.

 

“Salted Earth” features guest musicians Anders Hjort Straarup on trombone and renowned Danish rock musician Tim Christensen (Dizzy Mizz Lizzy, Tim Christensen) overseeing the grandiose mellotron parts, and backup vocals from Simon Stenbæk of labelmates Piss Vortex. “Salted Earth” will see its single release on digital platforms tomorrow Friday September 28th.

“Salted Earth” comes off the forthcoming RISING record Sword And Scythe – a concept album which examines the progression and recession of mankind throughout the movements of history. As the sword and the scythe can be tools for fighting evil oppression and feeding hungry mouths, they are equal symbols of destruction and the greedy exploitation of our planet’s resources. Since the dawn of man, the strive for power, wealth and growth has pushed many overambitious civilizations over the brink into the endless oblivion of forgotten history.

 

RISING vocalist Morten Grønnegård comments on the song, “The main riff for what became ‘Salted Earth’ was the first thing we wrote for the new album. We wanted to write a concept album as a poetic comment to the miserable state of affairs, and this song really sets the tone for the whole album. Conceptually, ‘Salted Earth’ is about the end of the world. To salt the earth is the ancient custom of purifying or consecrating a destroyed city with salt and cursing anyone who dare to rebuild it.  It is he cleansing of the old, making space for something new, once the salt has decayed. With our present technology at hand, the question is, if there will be anything to rebuilt for us, once we’re done tearing down.”
Zardonic have released a video for “Revelation.” I can personally hang with the over the top fun Deathstroke the Terminator meets Venezuelan Nu metal dub thrash vibes. From the press release:

 

Internationally renown Electronic Music Producer ZARDONIC has released the official music video for “Revelation,” the third reveal from his newest LP, Become, out 9/28/2018 on Entertainment One. The Venezuelan born producer once again showcases his unique mastery of bass heavy electronic production infused with heavy rock and metal, and brings the experience to life with a darkly aggressive music video for “Revelation”.

 

“Revelation” is a personal statement inspired by the people who took stances both in favor and against Zardonic, both as myself and as my music project. It’s a celebration of the best revenge anyone can have against backstabbers, bad-mouthers, copycats and hypocrites: your own success. – ZARDONIC

Sinsaenum (Dragonforce, Ex-Slipknot) have released a video for a cover of the Melvins classic “Hooch” from Houdini. Much like the recent Burn The Priest cover of “Honey Bucket” from the same Melvins-era, the band modernize and do it in their style but it still doesn’t hold a candle to the unfuckwithable nature of the original. Which is not to say it or the Burn The Priest covers are bad just that you can’t improve on grunge perfection. I would have liked to hear something faster like the mighty “Buck Owens” from Stag with Joey’s drumming, maybe (though that song has an insanely hard to replicate bad ass Mark D. bass line). Still, it is awesome to see heavy bands doing tributes to the greatest mofos and I am sure it would be fun to headbang along with live amidst the group’s raging originals. The guitar squeals are cool and the deathier vocals are cool enough, I guess. Mostly into the guitars. Drumming does not touch Dale Crover original in terms of how hard the hitting is but admirable attempt all around.

Sinsaenum release “Final Resolve” video

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Thursday, May 24, 2018 at 1:05 PM (PST)

Somehow I never heard of this bad ass death metal project Sinsaenum that features a wild combo of harder metal peeps. Joey Jordison (who is much missed in Slipknot),  Sean Zatorsky , Attila Csihar, Stephane Buriez, Heimoth and Frédéric Leclercq are members and all contribute to the band’s intense sound.

Sinsaenum will release their sophomore album Repulsion For Humanity on August 10 via earMUSIC. I am very impressed by the band’s memorable writing paired take no prisoners brutality and fiery soloing.

Check out the old school meets modern death metal gut punch “Final Resolve,” featuring the renowned French industrial percussion band Les Tambours du Bronx, who have also worked with Sepultura. 

“It is still death metal, it’s undeniable,” said founding member and mastermind Frédéric Leclercq. “But we found it interesting to mix it with other elements that we all like. This is only one aspect of the album and what Sinsaenum is about – ‘Final Resolve’ is just an obvious first single due to its catchiness. Because yes, it is possible to play death metal and be catchy [laughs].”
