The Great Sabatini have released the official video for their track “Life During Wartime” off of their most recent creation, Dog Years. The album’s melodic yet sludgy closing track is set to a collection of scenes from the 1993 animated film, “The Thief and the Cobbler”. It may seem random but works pretty well with the song itself. Feel free to check out the video after the break.
Stick To Your Guns will be releasing their new album next February and the band has stepped into promotion of the album very early. The band has release a music video for a new single titled “Nobody,”* which I really dig. I’ve always liked this band and I think the vibe they currently have going for them is pretty rad. If the rest of the album sounds anything like “Nobody,” I’m in for the long haul. You can check out the video for the track after the jump. It’s pretty cool.
Legendary Gothenberg act At The Gates have fucking returned! After damn-near twenty years, they will be unleashing their new album At War With Reality at the end of the month and let me tell you, this shit slays. I was only a pup when At The Gates released Slaughter Of The Soul, so I never thought I would see them release an album in my lifetime, but I was wrong. The shit has hit the fan and it smells wonderful. Check out a new music video for the bands track “Death And The Labyrinth” below. Continue reading →
Feed The Rhino are a band that I found out about earlier this year when they released their album The Sorrow And The Sound. The band is a very interesting one as they are one of those acts that I cannot seem to place into any specific genre. I do like the bands music and I really dig their new music video for the title track off of the new album. Check out the video for “The Sorrow And The Sound” below. Continue reading →
World-renowned act Bloodbath will release Grand Morbid Funeral, their first with new vocalist Nick Holmes (Paradise Lost), next month and they have unleashed a beast of a track in the form of a lyric video for their song “Famine Of God’s World.” This track is heavy, vicious and stupendous, so if you’ve got the time… Fuck it, even if you don’t have the time, stream this bitch. Enjoy. Continue reading →
As you guys know, I adore cover songs of all shapes and sizes, especially when they are done well. I also love the band Tombs and everything they do, so when I learned that the band had covered David Bowie‘s “Heroes,” I was over the moon. Not only is the song extremely well done, it is my favorite Bowie tune, which appears in one of my favorite movies The Perks Of Being A Wallflower. Check out Tombs rendition of the track as well as their video for it after the jump. Continue reading →
A new documentary film centered around the Melvins is in the works. The film, which is entitled “The Colossus of Destiny – A Melvins Tale”, is currently being put together by friends of the band and first-time filmmakers Bob Hannam and Ryan Sutherby. No release date has been set as of yet and the filmmakers have plans to start a crowd-funding campaign to help finish the project. A short teaser video for the documentary can be found after the break.
Visit the film’s official site for regular updates.
Swiss black metal act Schammasch are a band that I discovered earlier this year with the release of their second full-length album Contradiction. I love the album and the atmosphere that Schammasch creates, so of course when the band released a new music video I was curious as to what it would entail. The video is for the bands track “Golden Light” and it is definitely abstract. It’s not necessarily hard to follow, it’s just weird. I guess that’s what I should have expected however. Check out the video after the jump and come to your own conclusion. Enjoy. Continue reading →
Lane and I have been enamored with Old Man Gloom for a good while now. We love the ape-inspired sludgy mayhem and all that comes with it. Well, Noisey recently released a forty-five minute documentary about the band and it’s pretty great. You can watch the entire doc after the jump. If you’ve ever seen any of Noisey’s past docs, you know that they do not half ass anything. Check it out. Continue reading →
Audio terrorists Full Of Hell have released a video for “Blue Litmus”, the second single off of the group’s November 25th expected collaboration LP with renowned noise artist Merzbow, Full Of Hell & Merzbow. Directed by Jim Thayne, the video features live footage of the band interspersed with graphic videos of deaths, immolation and suicides blasted by a projector. Musically, the track unveils a further glimpse into the more apparent death metal/grind direction of the record, with a welcome change being a greater clarity for the basswork of Brandon Brown. Check out “Blue Litmus” below and look out for pre-orders (of which the first 100 will receive an exclusive noise tape compiling all of Full of Hell’s noise work in addition to extras) for Full Of Hell & Merzbow, set to start sometime this week via Profound Lore Records. A vinyl edition of the LP is due for release by A389 Recordings early 2015. In addition, be sure to catch Full Of Hell on their upcoming Fall run with Weedeater and Lazer/Wulf, details here.
Old Man Gloom (Ex-Isis, Converge, Cave In) have premiered a new track from their forthcoming album, The Ape of God, over at Noisey. The new track is the six minute “Predators” and being subjected to its sludge-ridden riffs, which are propelled by Caleb Scolfield’s (Cave In, Zozobra) gruff vocals, is like being flattened under a train repeatedly. Feel free to stream the new track after the break and check out previously released track, “The Lash”, if you missed it.
The Ape of God will be released on November 11th. A documentary film on the band is slated to premiere this Thursday, October 9th. The trailer for that film can be seen after the break as well.
Swedish improvisational instrumentalists My Brother The Wind have debuted the official video for their track “Song of Innocence” from their upcoming third full length, Once There Was a Time When Time and Space Were One, over at The Obelisk. The video just so happens to be the actual footage of the band tracking the song for the record. Guitarists Nicklas Barker and Mathias Danielsson had the following comments on the video:
“The video was recorded at the actual take of ‘Song of Innocence.’ We were happy that Eleni and Per were there during the recording and captured this for us very special song. As always, we record live onto an analog tape machine from 1969 with no overdubs and everything is improvised from scratch. The mixing was done the day after by us with some help from the great Love Tholin who is a big part of creating the sound of My Brother the Wind. I think it turned out great. Especially Mathias wonderful guitar solos and Daniel’s very unique drum playing. We are very happy with how the sound turned out on this one. The studio we record in is tricky since the sound in it differs from day to day. Probably because of all the vintage analog gear. The afternoon we recorded ‘Song of Innocence’ the tape machine, mixing console, tape echoes and plate reverbs were in perfect harmony.”
“I wish that all of you could see what I experienced when recording this piece. Since the music is totally improvised we connect to each other on another plane. It’s hard to describe but I guess it’s almost astral. I have my eyes open but the sight isn’t the main sense I’m using while we’re playing, it’s the ears. But when concentrating so hard on what we create together I see wonderful colors and waves before my eyes. It’s almost like meditation. We connect to the core of the music and form it together with mindcraft. I’ve never before experienced it on this level with any band. Being unable to show you that, this video is the perfect visual to go with the music. This is the way it happened!”
Check out the impressive video after the break.
Once There Was a Time When Time and Space Were One will be released on October 14th.
The Dillinger Escape Plan have been teamed up with rapper Jarren Benton for a Converse compilation titled Cons EP Vol. 2, which sounds to me like a revamped version of Judgement Night. The collaborative track is titled “Rage” and it’s pretty phenomenal. Jarren‘s rapping over whacky Dillinger riffs rules. You can check out the music video for the effort after the jump.

Columns released one of the most vicious albums of the year in the form of Please Explode and have now followed up with a new music video. The video is for the track “Bear Molester” and it is extremely weird and fucked up. Not really sure what is going on in a chunk of the video, but the song destroys. Check out “Bear Molester” after the jump. Continue reading →
Mastodon have been teasing their new music video for a while now, but I don’t think anyone expected what they have done. The band teamed up with Adult Swim again and they have released the most ass-tastic metal video of the year. Possibly the most ass-tastic video of the year, with the competition being Nicki Minaj‘s “Anaconda.” Check out “The Motherload” after the jump. ALL DAT ASS! Continue reading →
