Ancient VVisdom Releases New Video

“In horror, we are joined together to unveil the ‘Never Live Again’ music video,” proclaims Ancient VVisdom vocalist Nathan Opposition as he reveals the haunting clip for the occult/dark rock group’s new single, taken from sophomore release “Deathlike.”

Directed by Nathan Daughdrill (Neight Media), “Never Live Again” can be seen below, courtesy of Bloody Disgusting.

“In this video,” says Opposition, “we wanted to portray horror and the fine art of self-awakening. The executioner stands as the final act of judgment upon your mortal existence. Because we’re all dying to live, I challenge the listeners and viewers to go beyond the realms of their own consciousness to expand the mind into a new positive reality while they still have time. Inspired by Black Sabbath’s ‘Killing Yourself To Live,’ I wrote this song to invoke change. I believe this generation needs to learn a thing or two about their own existence.” More...

Fit For An Autopsy Signs With eOne

Fit For An Autopsy is pleased to announced the band's signing to eOne Music / Good Fight Music. Guitarist Will Putney offers his own words on the news:

"We're extremely happy to be working with eOne/GoodFight. I can remember buying Martyr A.D. and Fortheloveof CDs from Carl when I was a teenager so to have a record released by the man himself is very humbling.

"We love Guy at Black Market and everything he's done for us during our time with Black Market Activities. He took a chance on us when Nate and I had some demos in a computer and we owe a lot to that dude. Everyone please support that catalogue, Black Market has the coolest bands!"

The band will release newest LP "Hellbound" on September 10th, 2013. A teaser video can be found below. Putney continues:

"Our new album, Hellbound, is an accumulation of everything we love about heavy music. You'll find nods to Converge, Gojira, Isis, Ion Dissonance, 90s Florida death metal, Swedish melodic death and modern deathcore (the good kind, if thats such a thing). It's hard to classify but it's extremely aggressive and I feel very uncomfortable yet very satisfied listening to it. We hope you enjoy it too. See you on the road." More...

Exhumed Streaming New Album's Title Track

As West Coast gore crew Exhumed prepares to drop a fifth official studio full-length, "Necrocracy," upon society in two weeks, today the title track of the splatter platter has been exposed through Invisible Oranges. Give the song a listen below.

It's big, nasty and heavy, like your weird drunk aunt that smells like Funyons and laughs too loud at Thanksgiving dinner. This one has a little of everything, dual geetar action, fist pumping build ups, rapid fire drum fills and all the gore and grime you've come to expect from an exhumed track. Check it out and piss off some neighbors!”

Exhumed's ongoing European Takeover is wrapping up this week, to be immediately followed by an official LA release party for "Necrocrac"y on August 8th. The Fall months will see the bastards hitting the streets again for a month-long North American trek with labelmates Dying Fetus. More...
