Charlotte Sands has premiered a new video for her latest single “Tantrum.” You can check that out below:
Sands said the following about the song:
“‘Tantrum’ is so special to me because since the first time I played it live, people immediately latched onto it and have been fighting for its release ever since. This song not only represents experiences of anxiety, panic, and rebellion throughout my life and career but also the journey and relationship between me and the people who have made my career possible. I’ve been playing it live for over a year now and I’m thankful for the people who have pushed me out of my comfort zone to release a song that without them would still be sitting in a folder somewhere on my phone. I am overwhelmed with excitement for this song to finally be out in the world, it’s been a year in the making (almost to the exact day) and I can’t wait to finally be able to throw a tantrum together.”
She also added the following about the video:
“It only felt right to make the video feel like a celebration of the shows and the people that have supported this song for so long. We made this video over the course of a few days while on tour and wanted it to feel like the people watching it were there with us, in the audience, or running through the streets of whichever city we happened to be in that night. Overall I wanted it to feel fun, and I wanted it to feel like finally letting go of the emotions that we are so often taught to bury down and hide. This video and this song are a rebellion against society’s expectations for us to “keep calm and carry on” instead of expressing ourselves honestly and openly without judgement.”
Aftermath have premiered a lyric video for the title track of their upcoming album “No Time To Waste.” You can check that out below. The band commented:
“The title track from the forthcoming album, ‘No Time To Waste’—words that everyone should live by in their daily lives. But the song is not about that. Rather it’s about all of us together having no time to waste as a free species. Everyone you talk to today says something isn’t right in the world and most can’t point out what it is that makes them feel that way. Their gut tells them something isn’t right. This song is about what we feel isn’t right with the world today and we urge people to wake up before it’s too late. It isn’t about being woke, but being awake. The song is at its core about unity and coming together to defeat our mutual enemy. Every great story has a hero and a villain. We the people are the hero in this song.”
Stratovarius have premiered a new video for their song “Broken.” This track is from the band’s latest album “Survive.” Jens Johansson commented:
“The song is about mankind, and how we obviously are far from perfect. Technology can be a savior and it can be our doom. If we don’t make it, what then?”
Therion have premiered a new video for their new song “Marijin Min Nar.” This track is from the band’s new album “Leviathan II,” which will be released on October 28.
Guitarist Christofer Johnsson commented:
“When we did the songwriting for the Leviathan trilogy, it was basically me and Thomas Vikström that wrote everything. Nalle came up with one song and Christian Vidal came up with one too. But what they lacked in quantity, they made up with quality, as they both delivered a song that we thought was a good choice for a single.
Singles are usually the most commercial songs on an album, as the purpose of a single is not just to tease the fans, but also to throw out a hook to the general public and see if you catch some new listeners. ‘Marijin Min Nar’ is different in that regard, as it is not one of the more commercial songs. But instead, it is a ”regular” song that both ourselves, people at Nuclear Blast, and people we know who heard the album all found to be one of the most likable songs on the album. So we thought we’d have a go with this one as a single.”
Alice Cooper has shared a new video for “Under My Wheels” from his new live album/film “Live From The Astroturf, Alice Cooper.” The effort, which was released today (September 30), features the October 2015 show that Cooper played with the surviving members of his original band, Dennis Dunaway, Michael Bruce and Neal Smith. That set took place at Good Records in Dallas, TX.
Nandi Bushell has premiered a new video for her new song “The Shadows.” This track will appear on the musical prodigy’s upcoming EP “Into The Abyss.”
“Early in 2022 my Dad fell into a depression as his autoimmune disease worsened. It was a difficult time for our family. I wanted to help cheer my Dad up by writing a song for him. He would describe his feelings to me and I would put them into lyrics letting him know, I would be there for him.
My Dad is now doing much better, he is on medication that is helping with his autoimmune disease and has recovered from his depression.

YOU ARE LOVED. THERE IS HOPE. “
She also told Consequence the following:
“I am really excited for people to see my art. I love performing covers and have so much fun making the cover videos, but I also want people to know how much I love writing music too.”
“I hope my song can also help other people who are feeling down. I want them to know they are loved, too, and can find help if they need it.”

Sabaton have announced a new EP series, which they are calling “Echoes Of The Great War.” The World War I-inspired trilogy will feature “Weapons Of The Modern Age,” which is available now, and two additional EPs titled “Heroes Of The Great War” and “Stories From The Western Front.”
Bassist Par Sundstrom commented:
“This trilogy complements our two studio albums, ‘The Great War’ and ‘The War To End All Wars.’ We were definitely not ready to close our World War I chapter. We wanted to continue the journey and let it echo a little longer in the hearts and minds of our fans.”
A lyric video for “Father” from “Weapons Of The Modern Age” can be found below. Singer Joakim Broden said the following about that track:
“Our new song ‘Father’ is a dark track about a very controversial person. Fritz Haber, the man who weaponized lethal gas, is responsible for about four billion people being alive today thanks to the Haber-Bosch process that he won a Nobel Prize for. It takes some serious thought to wrap your head around his story. Things aren’t always easy to understand or simply black and white, but rather all shades of grey. ‘Father’ really forces you to think a bit more than the average song you hear on the radio.”
Enterprise Earth have released an instrumental version of their latest album “The Chosen.” You can check that out below. Guitarist Gabe Mangold commented:
