Today Is The Day always pleases my earholes and I like seeing really intriguing, off-the-wall music videos, so today is a nice day because I get both. I get new Today Is The Day and I get an insane David Hall-directed music video for the bands song “Masada.” I’m not sure if it’s ignorance or my upbringing void people of the Jewish faith, but I wasn’t aware of what the name of the song was derived from until I looked it up. Apparently it’s the name of a plateau in which a bunch of Israelis committed mass suicide. METAL! Check out the video for “Masada” after the jump. Continue reading

Revocation have released the first episode of the Making-Of special feature for their upcoming Metal Blade Records debut and fifth LP, Deathless. Shot by Naughty Mantis Productions, who recently brought forwards Whitechapel’s crowd-funded documentary, the pro-shot footage features one-on-one interviews with each individual band member on the weight and inner gimmicks of the new record. Personally, I feel the video missed the opportunities for the band’s well known comedic shenanigans but it’s a pretty tight affair. Peep the teaser below and be sure to catch Revocation on one of their upcoming tours (US with Crowbar, Havok, Fit For An Autopsy and Armed For Apocalypse, Europe with death metal peers Cannibal Corpse and Aeon and Australia with Thy Art Is Murder). Deathless comes out the 14th Of October. Pre-order it on CD and vinyl via Metal Blade here.

Experimental death metal outfit Pyrrhon have premiered the official video for their track “Sleeper Agent”, which comes from their most recent effort The Mother of Virtues, over at Metal Sucks.

You can check out the seizure-inducing video after the break.
