Sink The Ship release “Out Of Here” music video

Posted by longhairedpoet on Friday, May 11, 2018 at 7:27 PM (PST)

Ohio metallers Sink The Ship have released their latest music video “Out Of Here.”

“Out Of Here” comes off the band’s debut album Persevere which is out now via Sharptone Records.

Sink the Ship vocalist Colton had this to say about “Out of Here:”

“‘Out Of Here’ ties in with the whole meaning and concept of the Persevere record. Our band had a pretty rough time fitting into the Cleveland scene for the first few years we existed. To be honest that’s why we started touring and became super DIY. Just to get away from everything and sort of seek revenge through success. This song is for anybody willing to cut ties with anything holding them down and to keep their middle fingers aimed at the not so genuine people who come out of the woodwork when it’s the cool thing to do.”

Check out the music video for “Out Of Here” here.

Napalm Death reveal frenetic “Standardization” video

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Wednesday, May 9, 2018 at 7:30 PM (PST)

Grindcore legends Napalm Death released Coded Smears And More Uncommon Slurs recently, a collection of rarities that is as good as most of their records and earned a very high review from yours truly. We should thank our lucky stars that the band remain so high up in the ranks of important acts to this day, a standard-bearing group if ever there was one for how much metal can mean in a day and age when many heroes let us down. The perfect trustworthy go to band for headbangers hoping to survive dystopian times.

“Standardization” is positively ferocious and the video imparts a severe sense of frantic rage struggling to be so fierce that it is actually heard, cutting through and above the racket of the apathetic mental smog of society. It is all I could ask for from the band. Check it out below.

Phoenix, Az based critically acclaimed death metal group LAGO have premiered a Matti Way (From the North Films) directed music video for their song “Soiled Is The Crown” today via Metalsucks. The track, which saw Metalsucks commenting “If you like your DM with guts churned, ear drums rattled and knees shaken, this is the stuff for you!”, comes from their highly anticipated Unique Leader debut Sea of Duress which will see a June 8th release date and sees the band further refining their blackened, menacing brand of old school influenced death metal.

LAGO commented on the video, “This was our first experience making a video, so we were VERY apprehensive about the idea.  We tend to have a mentality of “less is more” in terms of our artistic direction, so the fear of doing something over the top and ridiculous was definitely there. This video is honestly the brain child of Matti Way.  We had a really simple idea and he really took it and ran. We were thrilled with how it turned out. The textures, the graininess, the cuts and especially the lighting turned out incredible! This video really encompasses the tone of the whole album in our opinion.” Matti Way added, “So what I wanted to do with the video was really bring out Lago’s eerie and ominous musical vibes that are interwoven throughout Sea of Duress…”

At The Gates release “Daggers Of Black Haze” video

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Friday, April 27, 2018 at 1:17 PM (PST)

Swedish melodic death metal legends At The Gates have released a new music video for the song “Daggers Of Black Haze”. The video was created by Costin Chioreanu / Twilight 13 Media (who was also in charge of the album’s artwork concept).

Pre-order new album To Drink From The Night Itself in its various formats here:
https://AtTheGates.lnk.to/ToDrinkFromTheNightItself

Frontman Tomas Lindberg comments on the track as follows:
“Daggers of Black Haze” represents the more progressive side of the new record. It has a lot of reference-points to our early back catalogue, both style wise, and the emotional setting. It is desperate and urgent, but still melancholic and epic. It is conceptually one of the cornerstones of the album. Driving home the point of the need for a war on apathy and the populistic forces that takes advantage of it. This is a fight against the abyss. A beacon for the importance of real art, real forms of expression, and importance of our understanding of our mutual cultural history. The video was filmed by Costin Chioreanu once again, and it is full of symbolism and heavy on the conceptual side. Costin displays the war for art and the importance of standing up to the oppressive powers and paradigms with his film. It is beautiful, striking, melancholic and I am very happy to see his vision of my concept.”

Video director Costin Chioreanu added the following about his work:

“Being aware of the heavy topic in this song I realized that making a video for it represents a mandatory mission for the art, in general. Speaking today of the way how the ruling class guided the evolution in art and the perception upon it, the weight of the history, which is deeply buried in the artifacts’ structures and ideologies, I take this song and the means of illustrating it as a pure and genuine artistic attitude. In the course of time, an imposed perception projected through the manipulation of the art by those holding the power, took the shape of an idol in the viewers’ eyes, it became their main light, the source of the imaginary, artistic beliefs and patterns. The presence of the main character depicted on the newest AT THE GATES cover and artwork – Alcyoneus, the oldest hero among the giant warriors – is here as well. His bust was rebuilt for this video, but it got a new face. Now his mouth is closed and therefore, he is reduced to silence due to the new paradigms and the oppression’s influence in art. Yet, this character continues to defy the primitive human nature. The snake’s symbol and the eternal temptation offered by the bestial side of the self are also present here, and they work hand in hand with the new Alcyoneus’ image. The video goes fast through different moments in the history, including the perception of art and human nature, and it employs a heavy, almost funeral type of visual tone. This time I have also decided to base all my work on a pretty sharp type of image, as sharp as the blade of the daggers. Regarding imagery, there is darkness, heaviness, hate and anger, which accede to death, primordial co-habitation and they are all enshroud with an almost political type of solemnity. The revolutionary spirit emerges through the mere existence of this video per se. At some points, short scenes depicting nature come as an invitation to a philosophic reflection on the monumental character of the art required by politics. This is how I felt this song, its lyrics and all the explanations provided by Tomas for this particular tune.“

Andrew W.K. releases “Music Is Worth Living For” music video

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Thursday, April 19, 2018 at 2:17 PM (PST)

Andrew W.K.‘s “Music Is Worth Living For” has been my anthem of the year so far. It just has everything going for it and makes me stoked to try and stay motivated every time I hear it. That might not seem like much to some of y’all, but when you are manic depressive it is good to have music that you know can lift you out of a funk and into a state of raging awesomeness . I am in pretty good shape right now between this song finally getting the energetic official video treatment, a new SLEEP album for 4/20, the Tracy Chapman cd my gf bought and a brand new Yob song .

Anyhow, enjoy the splendid lightning infused music and worship/tribute below.

It has been a minute since we heard from rockers From Ashes To New. Now the boisterous group have dropped the official music video for “Crazy,” the first single off of their upcoming LP, The Future, releasing April 20th via Better Noise Records / Eleven Seven Music. The album is available for pre-order today. It was recorded at Atrium Audio with producers Grant McFarland and Carson Slovak (August Burns Red) and mixed by Josh Wilbur (Korn, Lamb Of God), while the video was directed by Raul Gonzo.

“Crazy is, at its core, a song about someone or something driving you absolutely out of your mind and feeling unable to walk away from it. I feel like everyone at one point or another experiences that in their lives” states new vocalist Danny Case. “For me personally, I dated someone for a very short period of time and it felt like everything I said and did was wrong. I honestly thought I was losing my mind because I knew it was a bad situation, but I just felt like I couldn’t walk away. I think having that life experience really helped when we sat down and wrote the lyrics”.

Catch From Ashes To New Live: 
05/05 @ Carolina Rebellion – Concord, NC
05/18 @ Rock on the Range- MAPFRE Stadium – Columbus, OH

Ministry release “Twilight Zone” music video

Posted by Metal Riot on Tuesday, February 27, 2018 at 4:46 PM (PST)

Today, Ministry releases a surreal and provocative new music video for the track “Twilight Zone” from the band’s upcoming album, AmeriKKKant, due out March 9 (Nuclear Blast).  Building upon the themes of the song, the “Twilight Zone” video takes the viewer on a macabre excursion through the current U.S. news media climate of misinformation, corporate propaganda and hypocritical slander.  “We are in completely uncharted territory now,” said Ministry’s Al Jourgensen, “witnessing the unraveling of what was once a functional democracy.  Our government is under attack.  Our planet is under attack.  It’s time for a major reboot.” Click HERE to check out the “Twilight Zone” video.

 

The video was filmed last December just outside of Los Angeles and features Ministry guitarists Sin Quirin and Cesar Soto, Tony Campos (Fear Factory, Static X) on bass, keyboardist John Bechdel (Killing Joke, Fear Factory), live scratcher DJ Swamp (Beck, the Crystal Method), and Derek Abrams on drums.  Guest appearances are made by Gray Wolf, President of American Indian Movement (AIM), the internationally renowned and idiosyncratic Lord of the Cello, and an army of Ministry supporters who participated in the band’s PledgeMusic AmeriKKKant pre-order campaign.

 

The “Twilight Zone” video was produced by Chris Roth and Steve Roth for The Other House production company, the same group that produced Jourgensen’s previous music video, “I’m Invisible” for his 2016 Surgical Meth Machine release.  Chris Roth also directed the “Twilight Zone” video with Steve Roth as Director of Photography and editor.  The Other House has produced a wide array of broadcast design projects for Revolt TV, Nike’s Kobe 8 System, MTV, Aol.RISE, the Syfy Network, VH-1, CNN, PBS, “The Profit” on CNBC, the 2017 Emmy Awards and many more.

 

Said Chris Roth, “I’m a life-long fan of the band and very politically active.  Not only was this an opportunity to collaborate creatively once again with the one and only Al Jourgensen, but also an outlet for much of my pent up aggression and frustration regarding the current state of politics in our country.”

 

Ministry kicks off its North American tour on March 22 at the House of Blues in Anaheim, CA. Complete dates are accessible HERE.

The coolest video we have to show you today by far comes from Switzerland’s dark post-hardcore melodic heroes Impure Wilhelmina. The song is called “We Need A New Sun” and the video, while more or less a performance clip, is well shot, vibey and strong.

Wow, all I can say is that this song really hits the mark and pulls you in. It has a lot going for it, a soft and almost classical vibe in places that will appeal to fans of Metallica and Daylight Dies more somber moments as well as a punishing blackened post-metal sort of crispified Cult Of Luna onslaught at the 3:17 mark.

I don’t know why I put off checking out their Radiation album but I am def going to change that immediately. At almost 7 minutes you would think this song could turn into a snoozer but I have listened to it three times in a row and it has a sad, expansive comfort to it that should not be slept on by fans of great rock. Congrats to the band on a killer job!
