The Norwegian heavy metal band released their newest video for Endless Nights, which is actually a song for the band’s upcoming album, Infernal Rock Eternal, set to be released next year through Nuclear Blast.
What is interesting about this band is the fact that it was formed by Shagrath from Dimmu Borgir, and Lex Icon from The Kovenant, and it also features artists from bands like,Susperia, Gromth and Old Man’s Child. Even though in the other bands they sing different genres of music, in this one, they are really playing some great heavy metal.
The video is kind of funny at the beginning, because it gives the impression that it is a movie, but then it enters a different kind of atmosphere, a more metal one.
Cloud Nothings are set to release their third studio album early next year. Why should you care? Well, simply put, Cloud Nothings are one of the best bands out there right now. Their most recent album, Attack on Memory, was one of 2012’s best and saw the group take a huge step forward. What follows is a brief primer of Cloud Nothings for those who want to get some exposure to the band before their new album drops.
Cloud Nothings are a rock band from Cleveland, Ohio. Originally a solo project of lead singer and guitarist Dylan Baldi, Cloud Nothings’ early recordings were comprised lo-fi rock songs in which Baldi played every instrument. The ‘band’s’ first major release was 2009’s Turning On, an eight song compilation that was later re-released with an additional five tracks recorded around the same time. After that followed the release of several EPs, including the great Kevin Greenspon + Cloud Nothings split and Leave You Forever, which featured improved sound quality compared to Baldi’s earlier music.2011 saw the release of the Cloud Nothings’ full-length debut. The self-titled Cloud Nothings furthered the direction of Leave You Forever into a more power-pop sound and featured crisper production. Attack on Memory, however,was a complete 180. Released in January 2012, the album was darker and heavier than anything Cloud Nothings had released before. Baldi made a deliberate attempt to move away from the power-pop sound that defined Cloud Nothings by enlisting Steve Albini to produce the new album. Also, it wasn’t until Attack on Memory that Cloud Nothings became a true group endeavor; Baldi was finally joined in the recording process by his touring band of guitarist Joe Boyer, bassist TJ Duke, and drummer Jayson Gerycz. All of this added up to a fuller, harder sound and the results were spectacular.
Below are some highlights from Cloud Nothings’ work up to this point.
“Hey Cool Kid” from Turning On
“Can’t Stay Awake” from Turning On
“I Apologize” from Kevin Greenspon + Cloud Nothings
“Didn’t You” from the Didn’t You single
“Leave You Forever” from Leave You Forever
“Understand At All” from Cloud Nothings
“Stay Useless” from Attack on Memory
“Fall In” from Attack on Memory
“Wasted Days” from Attack on Memory
Today Cloud Nothings re-launched their website and uploaded a teaser video for their yet untitled new album, which I’ve included below. The website and video seem to confirm that the band is now a 3-piece, with guitarist Joe Boyer no longer in the picture. Regardless, the short song clips included in the video sound great and indicate that the new album will expand upon the sounds heard on Attack on Memory. While there’s no specific release date yet, I’ll be sure to post any updates as they’re released. For now, head to the revamped cloudnothings.com for more information on this great band.
Jon Hopkins decided to share the video for Collider, which is one of the songs from the artist’s latest record, Immunity, released on June 4, this year. Also starting December 9, the experimental producer will share via iTunes the extended version of this album.
The extended edition of Immunity tracklist:
01 We Disappear 02 Open Eye Signal 03 Breathe This Air 04 Collider 05 Abandon Window 06 Form By Firelight 07 Sun Harmonics 08 Immunity 09 Open Eye Signal (Happa remix) 10 Open Eye Signal (Lord Of The Isles remix) 11 Open Eye Signal (Luke Abbott remix) 12 Open Eye Signal (Nosaj Thing remix) 13 Breathe This Air [ft. Purity Ring] 14 Collider (Pangaea Remix)
There’s nothing much to say about the song, but the video is really awesome. It was directed by Tom Haines, and is about this girl that gets kind of possessed by the beat of the music. I have to say that I also like the location very much, and it goes very well with the song.
The black metal band from Poland finally decided to release their newest video for Blow Your Trumpets Gabriel. The song is one of the tracks from the band’s upcoming album, The Satanist, which is set to be released on February 3rd in the UK, February 4th in North America and Poland, February 5th in Japan, and February 7th in Europe and the rest of the world.
The album’s tracklist is as it follows:
1. Blow Your Trumpets Gabriel/
2. Furor Divinus
3. Messe Noire
4. Ora Pro Nobis Lucifer
6. The Satanist
7. Ben Sahar
8. In the Absence ov Light
9. O Father O Satan O Sun!
The video for Blow Your Trumpets Gabriel was produced by Grupa13. No wonder it ended up so well. Even though the video has a lot of elements from the satanic area the video could also be a very good short movie (Well, a satanic one).
Talking about it, Nergal, the band’s vocal and guitarist said that:
Yes, we took all the time in the world to complete this project. And we did everything that was humanely possible to accurately express our vision. We crossed the Rubicon. “Blow Your Trumpets Gabriel” is an ecstatic manifest of our unrestrained artistic will, where we dare to reach out beyond the limitations of the heavy metal genre. And it’s only the beginning…Enjoy!
The metalcore band, I Killed The Prom Queen, decided to share some new information about their upcoming album. Beloved is set to be released on February 18 in North America and on 14 in Australia, through Epitaph Records.
Talking about this upcoming album, the band also said that:
We’ve really extended ourselves. But we’ve done it in a way where it’s tasteful and it makes sense with the music. It’s not like we’ve gone from sounding like a metalcore band to sounding like Dimmu Borgir. It still sounds very much like Prom Queen.
The album also contains 11 tracks as it follows:
1. Beginning Of The End 2. To The Wolves 3. Bright Enough 4. Meilor 5. Thirty One & Sevens 6. Calvert Street 7. Kærjrlighet 8. The Beaten Path 9. Nightmares 10. No One Will Save Us 11. Brevity
Also, below you can check out the trailer for this upcoming album and a bright new song, To The Wolves. Just in case you were wondering, this great video was shot by Fredrik Sellergren.
