Operus Launches New Music Video

Canadian epic symphonic metal band, Operus has a new music video for their single "Lost" off their latest album "Score of Nightmares" released through German label Pride & Joy Music during June 2020.

The vision behind the new video is that of a journey through an inner self-created metaphoric world of being lost along with the feeling of self-doubt and the inevitable anxiety of running out of time. The video's purpose is to demonstrate that we all need guidance and that although our time here isn’t infinite, what we do with our "sands of time" is the most important.

The visually stunning music video was filmed by Joe Lyko of Dark Moon Productions and features Bunny Noire in the role of the "Lost Girl," which can be viewed below. More...

Blood Youth Surprises Fans With New Album

Today, Blood Youth have surprised dropped their third album "Visions Of Another Hell" via Rude Records. The release comes after last month's announcement that vocalist Kaya Tarsus would be leaving the band following their shows at Slam Dunk Festival. "Visions Of Another Hell" is therefore Kaya's final outing with Blood Youth and a swansong of epic proportions.

"'Visions Of Another Hell' is sonic snapshot of a period of time where we felt more comfortable in hell than anywhere else. Our best, most visceral and experimental creation to date. We couldn't be more proud of what this album became and what it means to us. As a band and a creative entity, all we've ever wanted is to express ourselves openly and to help others in the process.
It took everything from us to create VOAH, and hopefully it will give others the light they deserve," say the band.

The album features previously released singles "Iron Lung," "Cells," "Body of Wire," "Colony 3," and "Something to Numb the Pain." Alongside tracks such as 'Synthetic' and 'Kept In A Box', Visions Of Another Hell showcases Blood Youth's talent for interposing antagonistic metal with stunning melody.

Massacre Posts New Music Video Online

Florida's masters of death metal, Massacre, have debuted a gruesome music video today for their brand new single "Whisperer In Darkness," which is found on their highly anticipated 4th full-length album, "Resurgence," that's out October 22nd from Nuclear Blast.

Commenting on the new single, vocalist Kam Lee states:

"This is the bands love ballad. The first song we wrote together for the album, the one that brings us together in sweet harmony like honey and butter covered toast. It’s like a warm cozy cup of hot chocolate on a cold winter's morning… with marsh-mellows even. Until the horrid eldritch tentacle reaches up out of the toilet and violently picks you up off your feet and slams you face first into the concrete floor. Broken teeth, spurting blood and gore as parts of your tongue are torn from your maw while this hideous creature crawls its way up your rectum. Like I said… a love ballad." More...

Nekromant Shares New Single

After the great response to their mighty single "The Woods," Sweden’s Nekromant are back with their second track from the upcoming "Temple Of Haal" album, called "Behind The Veil Of Eyes."

Nekromant about the new single:
"This song is cold as ice but at the same time warming. The lyrics convey a notion of hopelessness but acceptance before an impending doom. Adam delivers the vocals in the verses with great merit. In short, a joyful little tune about darkness and death."

Standing on the shoulders of metal giants such as Black Sabbath and Pentagram, Swedish trio Nekromant are well versed in the art of crushing riffs and powerful melodies, boasting a sound that echoes the might of the past with an eye cast toward the future. With a much-admired set of releases to their name, the three-piece have been turning heads wherever they go with their authentic and effortlessly brilliant old school metal assault. From a punishing percussive battery through to the Iommi-esque guitars, this power-trio understand that the riff is king, as demonstrated throughout their superb new album. The first fruits of their new deal with celebrated Swedish label Despotz Records arrive late 2021 and is packed with ambitious metal gems such as "The Woods," the epic "Behind The Veil Of Eyes" and the doom-laden "Olórin's Song."

The album "Temple Of Haal" embraces a typical Swedish darkness in amongst a desire to reject the notion of living life through social media and seeks to reconnect with the things that really matter. The new album is an unashamedly old school heavy metal record, blessed with crushing riffs and inescapable hooks. The band, originally known as Serpent, have a large and loyal following, and the new album is very much in keeping with what those fans have come to expect from this acclaimed Scandinavian three-piece. With single "The Woods" proving to be a perfect calling card for the upcoming, Nekromant are in the perfect position to fulfil that early promise with "Temple Of Haal," and brings a new level of Swedish bleakness to the world.

"Temple Of Haal" will be released on December 3rd. More...

Produced, mixed, and mastered by Randy LeBoeuf (The Acacia Strain, Kublai Khan, Sentinels), Fragments of a Bitter Memory is 11 songs of savage, pummeling assault against trauma and society.

The results are focused, explosive, and powerful. The album opens with "Cowards Feed, Cowards Bleed," a visceral barnstormer expressing the exasperated feeling of being fed up. Today, fans can watch the music video for the new track, which can be seen below. More...

Enslaved Releases New Music Video

Enslaved's new EP "Caravans To The Outer Worlds" has today been released unto the universe, alongside a beautiful video for the track "Ruun II - The Epitaph." Viewers should note that the video is part two - a second part to the video which accompanied the EP title track.

A new cycle is underway, and Enslaved find themselves on a bridge between the archaic and the unmapped. "Caravans To The Outer Worlds" EP is a tale of departure, of leaving behind a barren and desolate world, travelling boldly into the future. There are outer worlds to go to and new havens to rebuild in, to invoke a new dawn and to defend the new world for those of Sense and Earth.

Grutle Kjellson stated,
"Releasing an EP is a huge privilege, it really is. It is somehow reliving to go on a stroll away from the the album format, and take some leaps into obscurity in between two full lengths. There’s so many great and experimental EP’s in music history; Magical Mystery Tour, Garage Days Revisited, Deathcrush, The Golden Years… just to mention a very few. We hope Caravans To The Outer Worlds, our third EP in 30 years, can fascinate and inspire."

Ivar Bjørnson stated,
"This EP is an expression of the vital state Enslaved is in – the idea to create a transitory release between Utgard and what is to come next logically led to the idea of an EP. Iver’s idea of adding short intermezzos between the two main songs gave this release even more energy and depth. This EP is one that points backwards towards our early works as well as forward to a yet unknown place we seem to be heading for." More...

Peter Tägtgren comments, "Dead World is a song that Sebastian wrote for our father/son project that never saw the light of day. When he started playing the song, I felt that the world needs to hear this crushing song asap as the groove and tempo blew my mind. The video idea came from our director Andrey Kezzyn and it's similar to my point of view of what’s about to come of the world. Maybe not literally, but who knows. Enjoy!" More...
