Of Mice & Men Posts New Video

Today Southern California band Of Mice & Men reveals a new music video for the song "Would You Still Be There," directed by Nathan Cox for Renaissance Man Productions and available below.

"Would You Still Be There" is featured on the band's new release "Restoring Force," which hit stores on January 28 via Rise Records.

"I'm super excited for the debut of our new video for 'Would You Still Be There,'" said bassist/vocalist Aaron Pauley. "Directed by Nathan Cox, who has worked with bands like Linkin Park and Chevelle, the video offers a peek into a present day small town set in an alternate post-apocalyptic reality, and it's gas mask clad inhabitants. Shooting the video was a great experience. Nathan and his staff did an incredible job with the imagery and location, and created a believable setting in an abandoned mining town north of LA. Despite chipping my tooth on that pesky vintage microphone, I had a blast, and it was awesome getting to hang with some of our fans; which can be seen in the video's ending performances parts."

Nader Sadek Releases New Music Video

Nader Sadek has a new official video clip out now for "Re:Mechanic," which can be seen below courtesy of Decibel Magazine.

In the final video off "In The Flesh," the curse of petroleum traps faceless protagonists in a vicious cycle of dismemberment and rebirth. Breaking down body parts and reappropriating them into engine parts, the infernal Machine accumulates those parts in order to extend and intensify this process. Caught in this loop, the song functions as a ritual that links the divine skies with the underground, an ancient past with the cradle of damnation.

Sadek states: "For the final video, it was important for me to shoot at the ancient Crystal Altar in Egypt, cutting it with footage from the New York City underground. Conceptually, I wanted to broaden the scope and scale of the project, and to reaffirm the global afflictions caused by our petro worship. In a sense, the underground has risen and the surface has sunk, and with this video and the album 'In the Flesh,' listeners get snared in the protagonist's nonlinear time loop: manufactured, dismembered, and released into the vacant desert, his prayer for survival is denied as he is consumed by the unending circle of death.

"'In The Flesh' and the more music-based projects prior to it were exactly that, projects. Nader Sadek was never a band or band name for that matter. The projects continue to grow and change, and it's become very interesting to hear different artists reinterpret the material. Three years after its original inception, this song ('Re:Mechanic') needed some new personality, and I think the re-recording with Travis Ryan, Mike Hrubovac, Tim Rocheny, Orestis Nalmpantis and Kelly Conlon with a superb intro by Martin Rygiel, has given it more strength and power. Personally, I think the new version is refreshing. The 'Re:Mechanic' re-fix peaks with this video, and I'm honored that Decibel and Terrorizer are premiering it together! More...

Exclusive

Rage Nucleaire Unleashes New Track

Savage Canadian black metal militia Rage Nucleaire returns with its most brutal offensive to date, in the form of the new album "Black Storm of Violence." Today we bring you an exclusive premiere of a track off the album - check out "Ritual Murder (And Its Attendant Blessings)" in the player below.

"Black Storm of Violence" is nihilism incarnate, devoid of all subtlety and mercy. The band, led by the inimitable Lord Worm (ex-Cryptopsy) and featuring Marduk touring drummer Fredrik Widigs in its ranks, burns through eight tracks of cult black metal including stand-outs "A Sino-American Chainsaw War," "Annihilation Frenzy," and the title track.

Rage Nucleaire's rabid metal recalls a time when the genre was still dangerous, and sharpens it with an almost masochistic rage. "Black Storm of Violence" will be released by Season of Mist on July 22nd, 2014 (July 18 worldwide) and pre-orders can be found at this location.

The band also comments: "...And the angel of light said: 'Let there be more killing, more hatred, more war and more violence,' and there was begotten a second Rage Nucléaire album. And there came a time when no good remained in the world, when chaotic evil met lawful evil, and it was called Black Storm of Violence. Now you die."

If the song below leaves you desperate for more Rage Nucleaire, be sure to also hear the full previous album "Unrelenting Fucking Hatred" over here. More...
