Rock titans Clutch have premiered the official video for their new track, “X-Ray Visions”, over at Billboard. The new jam, which will appear on the group’s new album, Psychic Warfare, is set to a Dan Winter-directed clip that provides a literal interpretation of the song’s telekinesis-inspired lyrics. Frontman Neil Fallon comments on the video:
“We’re not a band that’s at all comfortable acting in a video. That’s probably the most acting we’ve ever done in a video,…We’re very comfortable with Dan [Winter, director]; we’ve known him since 1993, really, but we feel most comfortable when we have our instruments in our hands. It’s really his brainchild and he kind of made it up as he want along. The song has a very kind of specific narrative to it, with very specific things that happen, and the lyrics aren’t particularly vague. I think Dan latched onto that by taking it as a springboard to one very literal interpretation and then to more vague ideas.”
NYC-based experimental/progressive metal duo Pseudo/Sentai have spent the last five years recording two full-length albums, the first of which will be released this fall. The first chapter will be titled Bansheeface and will be released independently on October 16. The album was produced by the band themselves and co-produced, mixed and mastered by Colin Marston (Dysrhythmia, etc) at Thousand Caves: Menegroth. The album’s artwork and track listing can be found after the break.
Pseudo/Sentai have also shared the album’s title track for streaming. The tune revolves around weird atmospherics and complex, math rock-infused prog guitar acrobatics. Fans of The Mars Volta, take note. The track can be streamed after the break as well.
The second of the two albums is slated to arrive in 2016.
Folkloric black metal outfit Windfaerer have premiered a lyric video for their new track “Finisterra” over at Heavy Blog is Heavy. The gloom-laden track, which will appear on the group’s forthcoming full-length, Tenebrosum, is full of melodic, virtuosic riffs that are drenched in melancholic atmospheres. The band comments on the new track:
“The lyrics to ‘Finisterra’ are about discovery and seclusion. What we learn about history is only the recorded account, but the truth is eventually unearthed through the passing of centuries. The lyrics are inspired by legends of medieval Basque fishermen who sailed across the Atlantic Ocean to North America, always returning with cod and never revealing the secret origin of their bounty.”
Seattle doomgaze outfit He Whose Ox is Gored have announced the release of their debut full-length record and follow-up to their 2014 7″, Rumors. The album will be titled The Camel, The Lion, The Child and will be released on October 9 via Bleeding Light Records. The record was tracked at Red Room and Ex Ex Audio in Seattle by Robert Cheek (Serial Hawk, Noise-A-Tron etc.) with additional recording taking place at Avast Studios with Randall Dunn (Sunn O))), Earth, etc). Matt Bayles (Isis, Mastodon etc.) handled mixing duties and frequent collaborator, Blake Bickel, mastered the album at Dynamic Sound Service. Guitarist and vocalist Brian McClelland comments on the upcoming effort:
“The Camel, The Lion, The Child is a cup that runs over. From the writing process and through the studio, we made it a point to make the record that we wanted. The songs grow and breathe with their own lives and personalities, and unfold with layers that surprise us to this day. The excellent engineering and mixing of Robert Cheek and Matt Bayles raised the bar, and pushed us to make the best record we could. Now, we share it with you.”
The album’s artwork and track listing can be seen after the break along with the group’s upcoming tour dates with Mutoid Man.

Man, Stray From The Path kill it every time don’t they? I mean, Subliminal Criminals is one of my most anticipated albums of the year and for good reason. Every track I’ve heard off of the album has been pure gold. Most of the bands new track “Eavesdropping” was killer, but the section featuring Enter Shakiri‘s Rou Reynolds didn’t tickle my biscuits. Other than that, this song is great and SftP rule. Check out the track below and see what you think. Continue reading →
