PORD Streaming New Track “What Are Tuesdays For?”

French noise rock miscreants Pord have unleashed a new track from their forthcoming sophomore album, Wild, over at The Obelisk. The new track begs the question “What Are Tuesdays For?”; a valid and perplexing question. I cannot answer the question but I can tell you for certain that the song rips. After a stop and start intro, the track propels itself forward in an angular whirlwind of mangled riffs. Pord will cut and stab their way into your heart. Check it out for yourself over at The Obelisk.

Wild will be released on September 8th via Solar Flare Records. Pre-orders can be placed here.

RINGS OF SATURN Debut “Senseless Massacre” Video

Bay Area tech death outfit Rings of Saturn have premiered the new video for their track “Senseless Massacre” over at Metal Injection. The track opens up their forthcoming album,  Lugal Ki En, which is due out on October 14th via Unique Leader (Pre-order here). On the video, guitarist Lucas Mann comments:

“’Senseless Massacre’ is the first debut single off of Rings of Saturn’s new album, Lugal Ki En, on Unique Leader Records. The music video depicts the band as aliens (full-black eyes) performing on alien-like instruments (Etherial Guitars) with their vocalist, Ian Bearer, being abducted and tortured in extraterrestrial machinery. After being tortured and experimented on, his blood turns blue at the end of the video showing that he has transformed and is no longer human. This conveys the idea that aliens could already be living along side us without the general population being aware of it.”

You can check out the video after the break.
