Spastic metallers Czar released their latest offering No One Is Alone If No One Is Alive a while back and now the band has unveiled their odd music video for their track “Aortic Flower.” This is my favorite track off of the album and I was thrilled to see a video for it.

I praised The Safety Fire‘s new album Mouth Of Swords a while back and, while it’s slowly slipped away from me, I still enjoy a handful of the songs on the album. The band recently released their latest music video for the albums title track, which is one of my favorite songs on the album. The video is cool except for the annoyance of how the song doesn’t sync up. Whatsoever. I know tons of bands do this when they release live performance videos, but they usually aren’t this apparent. I do enjoy the non-performance footage, though.
See what you think: Continue reading »

Protest The Hero released their new album not too long ago and the band continues in promotion of this phenomenal release.

A while back I posted about Born Of Osiris‘ lyric video for their song “Divergency” and how the bands latest offering Tomorrow We Die ∆live actually peeked my interests and I didn’t hate. I actually really enjoyed this album, which was something new and unnatural for me.

With the release of 2010′s Ressentiment, the name “East of the Wall” began to be tossed around in small circles within the heavy music universe on the net and by word of mouth. That sophomore effort was garnered with high praise and the following record The Apologist was met with the same, if not more positive press. The hype truly holds up because the New Jersey quintet are definitely one of the more forward thinking “progressive” metal acts to come around in quite some time. 2013 marks a new chapter in East of the Wall’s existence, for the outfit was recently wrought with lineup changes and rotations. Members were lost and members were gained. Redaction Artifacts, their fourth full length, is the first to feature new lead guitarist Ray Suhy, new guitarist and clean vocalist Greg Kutler, and first time for previous guitarist/vocalist Chris Alfano to handle bass duties. Redaction Artifacts is the byproduct of extensive inner band renovation but it definitely pays off in the end.
Four months have passed since Extol released their latest, self-titled album and they have not unveiled a lyric video for the song “Betrayer.” Now, while this album is pretty incredible, why wait this long to put out a lyric video? Wouldn’t it be more logical to put out a lyric video just before or just after an album is released? Eh, maybe it’s me. Regardless, the new Extol album is fantastic and you can check out the lyric video after the jump. Also, look for this band on my weekly playlist later today. Continue reading »
