I just read a statement that said that Caliban have never released a song in their native German until their most recent album Ghost Empire. Well, just to clear things up, this is not true. This may very well be the first ORIGINAL track the band has recorded in German, but in 2011 the band released an EP of cover songs titled Coverfield, which featured the Rammstein song “Sonne,” which is 100% in German. Just wanted to clear that up.
That said, Caliban have released a lyric video for their track “Nebel” off of Ghost Empire. Yes, the song is in German and yes, it rules. Check out the video below and be sure to pick up the new record if you haven’t. It’s a crusher. Continue reading →

Tazmanian tech death act Psycroptic released their rad new single “Echoes to Come” a few weeks ago and now the band has followed up with a pretty cool music video.

Lord Mantis have premiered their very NSFW video for their track “Possession Prayer” from their most recent effort, Death Mask, over at Bloody Disgusting. The twisted doom number is set to an equally twisted clip (directed by Gretchen Heinel) that depicts nude people bound by rope, masked figures engaging in some bizarre ritual and good old disembowelment. Check out the disturbing video after the break.
French noise rockers Pord have debuted the official video for their track “I’m Swimming Home” from their most recent release, Wild, over at Decibel. The video, which was directed by Vincent Lacan, Aurélien Foisse and the band members themselves, shows the band performing and partying it up in front of a backdrop showing clips from the 1968 film “The Swimmer”. The pool party goes well with the song’s main bouncing, disfigured surf rock riff. You can check out the clip for yourself after the break.

Mogwai have premiered the official video for their track “Teenage Exorcists” from their forthcoming EP, Music Industry 3. Fitness Industry 1, which will be released on December 1st.
