Blaze Of Perdition Talks "The Harrowing Of Hearts"

Black metal has gone from strength to strength since Venom first coined the term. It's become perhaps the most infamous genre of music, taking its war based on individualism and opposition to Abramic religions to extreme heights from time to time. At its core though, black metal is all about expression. While Norway hosts some of the most legendary names of the genre, the country which follows the ethos of free speech and fierce philosophy must surely be Poland, home of such bands as Behemoth, Furia, Batushka and of course, Blaze Of Perdition.

Blaze Of Perdition began life simply as Perdition, before changing their name in 2007 and releasing their debut, "Towards The Blaze Of Perdition" three years later. Only a year later, the group released their sophomore effort, "The Hierophant," but tragedy was soon to strike. In 2013, the band suffered a horrific automobile accident, which killed bassist 23 and severely injured vocalist Sonneillon and drummer Wizun. Despite this, the band returned in 2015 with a new album, "Near Death Revelation" and ever since, have been getting bigger and stronger with each release, culminating in "The Harrowing Of Hearts," released this past February.

Last week, I had the pleasure of speaking with Sonneillon all about the album, as well as signing with Metal Blade, how the band tours without him, the power of the Catholic church in Poland and much more. You can listen in full below. More...

Haken Posts New Music Video Online

Progressive rockers Haken recently revealed their new studio album ‘Virus’, the follow-up to 2018’s acclaimed album ‘Vector’, will be released 5th June 2020. Now they are pleased to launch the video for the album’s second single ‘Canary Yellow’, a striking animated clip created by Crystal Spotlight. Watch it below.

The band comments: "For 'Canary Yellow,' we went in a more alternative direction, since we’re all big fans of bands like Radiohead, Elbow and Peter Gabriel. Those are artists who can portray quite dark subject matter through really beautiful music. Since the 'Virus' album is intended to be a metaphor for various negative tropes of society, we wanted to explore this idea in a variety of ways.

"'Canary Yellow' deals with the suppression of physical and mentally abusive relationships; something that can often remain hidden behind a seemingly happy facade.

"We once again returned to long time visual collaborators 'Crystal Spotlight' for this ambitious animation and we're absolutely thrilled with how well the visuals complement and enhance the atmosphere of the song. The video shows a seemingly idyllic family environment, but with a sense of sadness beneath the surface and absolute devastation looming on the horizon. They go about their day oblivious to the fact that they are mannequins living in a 1950s style ‘Doom Town‘ experiment." More...
