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.”

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!!”

Falconer releases “Kings And Queens”

Posted by Morgan Y Evans - Walking Bombs on Wednesday, June 10, 2020 at 9:16 AM (PST)

Epic metal force Falconer return! On June 26th, the Swedish power folk metal warriors will release their new album, From A Dying Ember, via Metal Blade Records. For a preview of From A Dying Ember, the new single, “Kings and Queens”

From the beginning, the band planned not to perform often live (their final tour date was at ProgPower USA in Atlanta, GA in 2015). After retiring from the stage five years ago, the band took some time off before writing a new album.

Stefan Weinerhall (guitar) comments: “Finally, we got the chance to incorporate some keyed fiddle and bagpipe into the music – something that has always been a wish from us, just to get that extra medieval and folky feel to it. In that time, we also wrote the most intense ballad ever, which turned out to be ‘Rejoice The Adorned’ – only featuring piano, keys and strings.”

Mixed and mastered by Andy LaRocque, From A Dying Ember was also recorded at LaRocque’s Sonic Train Studio. Stefan concludes: “To sum the album up, we can say that From A Dying Ember’has some things that really stand out from a usual Falconer album. A lot of things happening and more elements to the music than ever before!”

Enchantya release “Mother Hope” lyric video.

Portuguese melodic metal band Enchantya now release a new single for “Mother Hope”. This is the first new track after their critically acclaimed second studio album On Light And Wrath, which was released in 2019 by Inverse Records. Fans can expect an uplifting yet somewhat sorrowful song with classic heavy metal flourish and serene vocal highlights.

Singer Rute Fevereiro and Keyboard player Pedro Antunes comments:
” “Mother Hope” was inspired by the situation the World currently lives with everything that Covid-19 brought with it. We live in a time when collective consciousness must prevail, as well as hope for a better world. Planet Earth is our home, as well as home to all the different species. This song speaks of the hope that humans will use these times to think both as a whole and in each individual. It is a theme that speaks of hope and that the outcome of this phenomenon now brings more unity between people regardless of race, gender or sexuality, and a better world for everyone. That option is within each of us, and one person can make all the difference.”

Hey scuzz buckets. I titled this blog entry as ‘Metal VS Punk’ but hopefully y’all know that is some BS for clicks and that here at MR we strongly encourage you to support both. I can’t imagine how much more my life would have sucked without both genres and all the colors in-between.

Today we have one metal and one punk video for you to kickstart Memorial Day Weekend.

Veteran act Paradise Lost always cast a shadowy spell and honor their legacy while refusing to stagnate. So many good releases over the years and Obsidian is going to only add to that (as well as be on many year end lists). “Darker Thoughts” is a gorgeous and epic, brooding video partially shot both before and after Covid-19 hit. Since the 15th of this month it has already gotten over 247,000 views (not too shabby for a band with true extreme roots who never compromise). The record is also charting very well!

Ash Pears from AshTV managed to film bits of the video with Nick before the lockdown but had to piece together the rest of the video using random footage to make things work.

Nick Holmes states: “Musically, this is a song of 2 halves and was originally written as an intro towards the end of the Obsidian writing process. As a result, it’s one of the more spontaneous songs on the album. Lyrically, it’s a song about choosing the wrong path – failing to look before you leap, and dealing with the consequence of dubious decisions.”

Green Day have covered the Blondie classic “Dreaming” as a gift to all their fans during tough times. The video is fun, the cover is great and faithful to both bands and I am stoked a band that huge is reminding people of the classics. EVERYONE should go read Debbie Harry’s iconic new book Face It about her life. Honestly one of my top five rock books ever up there with Slash and White Line Fever.

New Zealand-based death metal trio ULCERATE are pleased to unveil their official new video for “Dissolved Orders.” The track comes by way of Stare Into Death And Be Still, the band’s critically lauded sixth full-length, out now on Debemur Morti Productions.

The deepest, purest, and most meticulous form of ULCERATE, Stare Into Death And Be Still is a soul-searching conflagration of atypical melodicism, immaculate virtuosic dexterity, and sublimated psychological upheaval. A breathtaking new beginning for one of the most uniquely talented bands in extreme music.

Stream Stare Into Death And Be Still in its entirety at THIS LOCATION.

With Stare Into Death And Be Still, ULCERATE’s signature, ultra-atmospheric fusion of unorthodox death metal with the textures of futurist black metal is here pared down with the consummate hand of experience, giving stunning credence to the riff, the song, and the meaning. Thematically, the album draws upon recent personal experience to confront the truism that death and tragedy aren’t always sudden or violent; that people are often passive observers trapped, “in the silent horror of observing death calmly and cleanly.”
