Eyes premiere “Distance” video over at Decibel Magazine

Posted by longhairedpoet on Wednesday, August 5, 2020 at 1:35 PM (PST)

Danish metallic hardcore noisemakers Eyes have released a video for their song “Distance” over at Decibel Magazine!

“Distance” comes off the band’s upcoming debut album Underperformer due out September via Indisciplinarian.

Eyes is made up by five young veterans from the Danish metal and hardcore scene, and the new album Underperformer reflects a combo that does not worry one bit about what fans, the scene, or people in general might think. One senses an artistic kinship with bands such as Daughters, Pissed Jeans, and Converge, all bands who started out with a particular sound and have changed and developed their musical vision significantly; something Eyes aims for as well, and succeeds in.

Barely over two years since the band’s eponymous debut EP saw the light of day, Eyes delivers their Underperformer. The record was produced by Tobias Munk Tønder (Église, Drukner), mastered by Jacob Bredahl (Lifesick, I Am Bones) who also contributes guest vocals to several songs on the record, and completed with artwork by Jon Gotlev/No Heroes.

The new video for “Distance” was directed by Ausrine Kurgonaite and Chey Long-Andersen.

Eyes lead singer Victor Kaas states about the “Distance” single:

“‘Distance’ is the shortest and most aggressive track on the record, by a small margin, as the whole record is pretty fucking aggressive. It was also one of the first songs we wrote for the album and it ended up being the song that really shaped the sound of Underperformer. Lyrically, the song is about discovering when something isn’t as it should be in your life. The feeling of reaching out, only to be met with dismissal and misunderstanding. If you’re depressed; don’t stop reaching out. Not everyone will understand; someone will.”

Head over to Decibel Magazine to see the video for “Distance.”

Chelsea Grin release “Bleeding Sun” lyric video

Posted by longhairedpoet on Friday, July 24, 2020 at 2:30 PM (PST)

Salt Lake City deathcore metallers Chelsea Grin have released a lyric video for their song “Bleeding Sun.”

This is the band’s first new track since 2018’s Eternal Nightmare LP, which was released via Rise Records.

“Bleeding Sun” is a political track that hearkens to the best of deathcore. With imagery that reminds me of when I first started watching political punk and metal music videos, Chelsea Grin is out to make a statement.

Check out the lyric video here.

Having a very bad and emotional day due to a death in the family. Distracting myself from feeling down by sharing some good old fashioned rock n’ roll with you all to try to make the world a cooler place. Really enjoyed the take no prisoners new jam “Gasoline” from Swedish hard rock fighters BÜRNER.  These guys are no bullshit and will release the new album Baptized in Gasoline on 30th September 2020 via Time To Kill Records. It truly scratches the Lemmy itch and is a bad ass tune that picked me up off the ground a bit. Maybe it will cheer you all up as well if needed. Either way, the band fucking rock.

Tracklisting
01. Hey Hey
02. Hammerdown
03. Kill You Til You’re Dead
04. Run Like Hell
05. Gasoline
06. Slaughter
07. The Burner
08. Don’t Fake The Ache
09. Murder
10. Million Reasons To Cry

Extra tracks (only on CD):

11. Rock’n’roll
12. On the Shitlist

The envelope pushing underground legends known as Boris have a new video for   “鏡 -Zerkalo-“, a track from their tectonic shifting new album, NO. The clip was created by producer Yoshiki Shimahara (also responsible for CG works in the movie Shin Godzilla, etc.) and can be found below. Five+ minutes of almost mythical environmental settings paired with some of the most heavy and tortured powerful dirge of the band’s fertile career. Boris remain unstoppable.

Boris comment on the video: “The song as a mirror that reflects this world.”

Unleash The Archers continue to stake their claim as the most consistently brilliant heavy metal band with their momentous new song “Soulbound”, the latest single from pending album Abyss (pre order here). This Vancouver band of true believers are heavy on both imagination and skill, capable of becoming one of metal’s next truly great bands in the long run.

Featuring 10 new tracks, this record is a concept album and sequel to 2017’s Apex, and was once again recorded with legendary producer Jacob Hansen of Hansen Studios in Denmark. Abyss is out 8/21 via Napalm. Hails.

Psycroptic reveal video for ‘Beyond The Black’

Posted by Morgan Y Evans - Walking Bombs on Wednesday, July 1, 2020 at 7:41 PM (PST)

Psycroptic have an explosive new video for dark thrash song ‘Beyond The Black’. The very gloomy looking and imposing clip can be experienced below.

The band comments: “We’re very happy have once again worked with our good friend and long time collaborator Wilson Bambrick on the film clip for Beyond The Black. The clip was shot last pre-isolating (in September 2019); and due to the Plague and other delays on our end it hasnt seen the light until now. Please enjoy, and we look forward to getting some new music out later this year.”

Enterprise Earth share video for Lamb of God cover

Posted by Morgan Y Evans - Walking Bombs on Monday, June 29, 2020 at 11:10 AM (PST)

Enterprise Earth have an in quarantine video out for their Foundation of Bones EP’s cover of Lamb of God’s “Now You’ve Got Something To Die For.” While the huge bellow and impending doom of the original is hard to top, the band did a good job and the coolest parts are probably how they charred up some of the faster parts to a blackened crisp. Gotta love the extra breakdown semi-Oceano thunder fudge at the end as well.

Bottom line – the band did a killer job on a self produced EP and kept the fires burning for fans in a commendable fucking way. Y’all need to peep the Necrophagist cover too as it is even better.

Guitarist Gabriel Mangold comments: “Lamb Of God is one of our collective favorites as we all draw a significant portion of our influence from their catalog. We really wanted to do something off of Ashes Of The Wake and this song seemed to check all of the boxes for us. Straightforward and to the point, this was a ton of fun to cover.”

And we’re baaaack. Metal Riot news here with the latest clobberin’ time updates to get you through these hard times. Anthrax have a new bourbon honoring Dimebag (made in my Hudson Valley) for all you boozers to check out. Looks legit! I have been sober six months so I am not gonna fuck that up, but you do you. So for my pick me up, let’s pivot to hardcore!

NYHC legends Sick of it All (and we’re all sick of it all right now, one way or the other), have a new video out for “Bull’s Anthem”. Always one of the all time greats of hardcore to me and many others, SOIA deserve all the love. And they brought some friends along!

“Getting all our fans and friends involved in the making of this video for ‘Bull’s Anthem’ was an absolute blast. We had so much fun going through all the submissions, piecing it together, and being able to bring some much needed laughter into all of our lives during these crazy times. It’s amazing to see so many people united via our music, from all over the world, and joining us in spreading a good responsible message. We want to thank Tim from Rise Against, Chuck from Hot Water Music and the hundreds of participants, for making this happen, and we want to thank you for watching and sharing this video. It’s US vs Them and the time for revolution has come! Support, love and take care of each other,” states SICK OF IT ALL about the music video.

“Bull’s Anthem” is off SICK OF IT ALL’s latest album, Wake The Sleeping Dragon!. For the release, Century Media Records teamed up with Fat Wreck Chords, who put out the CD and vinyl version in the US. The album is available to stream and purchase HERE.

Ensiferum release ‘Andromeda’ OFFICIAL VIDEO

Posted by Morgan Y Evans - Walking Bombs on Wednesday, June 17, 2020 at 9:42 AM (PST)

Finnish metallers Ensiferum have a new video out directed by Vesa Ranta and recorded on Rankki Island, Finland. The song “Andromeda” begins by warning of being too prideful as the band fire into their beloved melodic death metal influenced folk metal hybrid sound. I really enjoyed the chorus section of this song and the end when the energy really picks up.

The biggest difference separating new album Thalassic from the rest of Ensiferum’s catalogue comes from the fact that it’s the first of their albums to be built around a theme.

“The idea of it started to brew in my mind when I was doing interviews for ‘Two Paths’ and many journalists asked if it was a theme album, and I noticed that I was answering all the time that because of the way we compose it’s almost impossible to make a theme album. This really started to piss me off and the decision was made: the next album would have a theme. At that time, we already had a few songs almost ready for the next album, and I started to listen to the demos much more from the feeling aspect instead of analyzing them musically. For some reason, all of them took me to a seashore, and the theme was found: something related to sea or water. So I started to read about history, myths and legend around the world that had something to do with the theme, but even though all of the lyrics are obviously inspired by this, I tried my best to keep Ensiferum’s heroic mentality in them. In the end, there were too many ideas for lyrics, because I didn’t set myself any boundaries – like all stories would have to be Nordic, etc, and one of my favourite songs on the album tells about Andromeda from Greek mythology. I can’t promise that this way of lyric-writing will be the future of Ensiferum, but at least we did this once.” – Sami Hinkka

Valkyrie will return in 2020 after five years since their last record. Newest track “The Choice” is pure classic metal influenced ear candy to me, just riff after hummable riff like a perfect groove, mid temp ride out into a melodic pasture full of weird creatures as you contemplate your past with longing. The dual guitars and great, organic feel of this one is reminding me of the best work of The Sword, Slough Feg and even a little Blue Oyster Cult “Veteran of the Psychic Wars”. This song is absolutely on my wavelength.

The Virginia based band will release Fear via Relapse on July 24th.

After a number of years absence that left fans wondering if we would ever hear Sister Sin again, the Swedish rockers have returned to pump us up with blazing rock n roll glory. The band performed a Raw & Mean From Rehearsal live stream over this past weekend and it was epic to hear their underground, fiery anthems again. Liv Sin has stayed busy with her Burning Sermons album and solo band but many people have also missed the rowdy and bar room brawl ready Sister Sin songs. It was killer to hear “24/7” kick off the set (about an hour into the video below) and feel the adrenaline build! Will more be forthcoming? I don’t know, but this was one of the best things to happen yet in 2020 for rock fans.

OVERKILL/SHADOWS FALL’s drummer Jason Bittner has joined forces with guitarists Felipe Roa (SHADOWS FALL), Bobby Koeble (DEATH), and bassist Steve Di Giorgio (TESTAMENT, DEATH) to record a ‘quarantine jam’ video of DEATH‘s “Overactive Imagination” (above).

Jason Bittner wrote also a long accompanying message:
“Well there’s a bunch of explaining that goes along with this video and a history of sorts…….after the whole pandemic started, I contacted my longtime friend and former bandmate Felipe Roa (Shadows Fall touring guitarist after Jon joined Anthrax) to see if he wanted to do some “quarantine covers” and I proposed “Wake Up Dead” by Megadeth, and by now you have seen that one. At the time of discussion Felipe asked if I wanted to do a Death tune, knowing that they are one of my all-time fave bands as well as his, and we used to jam Death in soundchecks all the time. Initially my first reaction “ummmm, I don’t know if I want to do that much WORK, hahaha,” but as soon as he said “Overactive Imagination” I was in – I used to jam this song all the time in my formative years but I did wonder if I could still pull it off. After a couple days of shedding and trying to be 25 again, we had a completed drum track, which I even sent to my pals (former Death drummers) Richard Christy and Gene Hoglan for “approval”. Sean already gave me the green light from Heaven. At first we were just going to do it the two of us, but I had a plan. Here’s some crazy trivia – while I attended Berklee College of Music in the 80’s, I played in a band with Bobby Koeble and we actually recorded a few original songs wayyyyyy back in the late 80’s. Bobby later went on to join Death for the Symbolic album and still plays in Death to All. After not speaking for over 30 years I hit up Bobby, reconnected (which I’d been meaning to do for years) and asked him if he wanted to do this tune with us and he said yes right away. He asked who was playing bass and I told him Felipe probably would do that too………unless…….“Unless what? Unless I can get Steve to do it……So the next point was to contact my friend, and one of the greatest bass players out there, Mr. Steve DiGiorgio to see if this could be possible. At first Steve wasn’t’ sure if he could commit due to his many projects, so we actually asked our friend Bill Bodily (Ex- Toxik, Flotsam and Jetsam touring bassist) to do the bass since Steve wasn’t available. In the meantime, I had sent Steve the track after we put Bobby on it just to “make sure” he couldn’t do it. I had a feeling if Bobby committed, Steve would follow. A week later he did send his tracks, so first off THANK YOU to Steve for going above and beyond in such a quick and timely manner, and also to Bill for being our “backup”, sorry it didn’t work out – next time! So there you have it folks, we put a lot of work into this one because we absolutely love this band in every incarnation, and I am proud to say that I am friends with a lot of the people who have played in their ranks so…….so this one goes out to……Terry Butler, James Murphy, Richard Christy, and Gene Hoglan. Lastly, a moment to remember past members Scott Clendenin, my former bandmate and friend Ralph Santolla, my longtime friend and mentor Sean Reinert, and lastly the one and only Chuck Schuldiner for being one of the greatest songwriters to ever grace the Metal world!! Enjoy and share!!”
