"Hello friends, I am still trying to recover from the beers of our release party last week and a strange virus that has hit me with fever, cough and a cactus-like throat...

"Here is the fourth Dol Ammad music video for the song 'Noctis Labyrinthus' taken from our 'Cosmic Gods: Episode I - Hyperspeed' album. I've received emails and comments that this song has one of your most favorite melodies and I can't agree more! I think that it has a mesmerizing atmosphere and I believe the temple footage fits perfectly the feelings of the 'fallen cathedral' that hides the 'Sign of Noctis.' You can also witness Batman deciphering some hieroglyphics..." More...

Dol Ammad Releases New Music Video

Dol Ammad has posted a new video clip online for "Magus Invicta," which can be viewed below. The band also commented:

"Hello my fellow space-freaks, here it the third music video from the new Dol Ammad album 'Cosmic Gods: Episode I - Hyperspeed.' I did bend my promise for a new video every 2 weeks a little bit but I had lots of work preparing your pre-orders and packaging the last few days. The next videos will come sooner I hope.

"So I hope you'll enjoy 'Magus Invicta,' it's probably the fastest song in the new album and it has a great concept of a journey into the core of the Sun to find this invisible magician! I will explain more of my concepts behind 'Cosmic Gods' in an upcoming video."

Unearthing More Of The Prog Metal Underground

Every Monday we unearth three more underground metal bands that our readers may not have had the pleasure of hearing yet, and this week we’re looking another batch of acts that throw prog rock into the mix or otherwise break genre boundaries.

This is our third outing into the ever-changing waters of prog, and what’s interesting about this style is how many different sounds can be contained within the same overall genre title (even the term “prog” itself is somewhat contradictory – if a band falls into an easily identifiable genre label then is it really “progressive?”). For instance, compare Orphan Bloom’s over the top rock style from our last prog metal edition of Unearthing the Metal Underground with the mixture of soothing atmosphere and death metal mayhem found in Enochian Theory below. Both are “prog,” but both are vastly different in style and substance.

These three acts are a little less jazz and instrumental focused than the bands in our last prog lineup, and cover a wider range of ground, heading into power and symphonic territory as well.

Ocean Architecture

U.S. act Ocean Architecture is a newer band on the scene, having just now finished and released online a first full-length album title “Animus.” Although the sound quality isn’t perfect (this is a debut from an unknown group after all), the album still has pretty much everything that a progressive metal fanatic craves: crazy electronic keyboard sounds, a strong prog rock feel, random gang shouts, and even some black/death metal bouts interspersed all throughout.

Topping it all off are some technical and showy bits, as well as interesting changes in tempo and vocal styles, such as the odd feeling of falling created during the “spiral downwards” section on the track “Plato’s Cave.” You can listen to the full “Animus” album through the Bandcamp player below.
