Having had a couple wonderful years with Brent in the Florida local band scene, doing the Blue demo and ETI together, the very first European mini-tour and first USA tour together – I have nothing but amazing memories of a wonderful person. Our hearts and condolences go out to all of Brent’s family and friends.”

Korpiklaani Premiere “Sudenmorsian” Lyric Video

Korpiklaani have released a cover of Powerwolf’s “Where The Wild Wolves Have Gone.” Korpiklaani’s version of the track is titled “Sudenmorsian” and a lyric video for it can be found below.

Korpiklaani commented:

“Sudenmorsian (The Wolf’s Bride) tells the story of loneliness and lycanthropy. At the beginning, a man walks with his bride, they are inseparable, but when the summer’s nightless night steps aside and darkness comes, man runs as a wolf for the first time. He knows if he gives all of himself to nature and lives as a wolf, he has to live alone.

When we were asked by Powerwolf to do a cover of one of their songs, we immediately agreed and wanted to do something a little different and special. Once again Tuomas Keskimäki did his magic and adapted the lyrics into Finnish and made a fitting powerful tale. Of all the covers we have done over the years, this is the one we are really proud of and we hope everyone enjoys this as much as we do.”

Lindsay Schoolcraft (Ex-Cradle Of Filth) Premieres “Worlds Away” Video

Lindsay Schoolcraft (ex-Cradle Of Filth) has premiered a new video for the title track of her new harp album “Worlds Away.” That effort will be released on October 9.

Schoolcraft commented:

“‘Worlds Away’ was written about feeling isolated and as far away as possible from someone you love and don’t know how to tell them your feelings for them. When the pandemic struck I was inspired to finish this piece that was laying dormant for quite some time and then when the opportunity struck to film a music video I knew right away this was the song. The concept to this music video is being out in the middle of no where and feeling secluded. While any of your attempts to communicate to people aren’t possible, all that exists are the feelings you have left inside and that’s what keeps your hoping for better days to come. I feel like anyone can relate to that after the year we’ve all been through.”

“Worlds Away” Track Listing:

01. “Worlds Away”
02. “Saviour”
03. “Darkness-Falls”
04. “Fading Star”
05. “Stranger”
06. “Where I Fall”
07. “Dance On The Strings”
08. “Dangerous Game”
09. “Your Mind”
10. “Masquerade”
11. “Warn Me”

Breakdown Of Sanity Return With New Song “Traces”

Breakdown Of Sanity have officially returned with a new song titled “Traces.” You can stream that track below:

The band commented:

“Hello World! Today’s a big day for us – we’re stoked to announce our brand new song ‘Traces‘ which is digitally available everywhere as from now! We’re sure that some of you have questions as we have stopped our activities as a live band in 2017, so let us shed some light into the dark:

At that time we decided not to play concerts anymore and not to record another album. It was simply time for a (creative) break of uncertain duration, and with the increasing responsibilities that life brings, we all needed more time for our personal plans (family, job…). However, we have never considered this pause as the definitive end of our musical work. We were all still open for musical projects, be it with BoS or in any other form.

And as time passed by, new ideas and a new passion for our music emerged. So we started recording again. Just some demo tracks, just for fun – until we realized that we still had something to say and that we could not just stop. And the fact that we were no longer under any deadline pressure, that nobody was expecting anything, and that without concerts we could invest much more time in music without neglecting our private lives, made us realize that there is a way to reconcile all our passions.

This is also the reason why we decided not to record a whole album but a single. And the best thing is: More will follow! In the future we will record more new ideas and release them as singles as soon as they are ready. This way our fans always get something new to hear from us instead of having to wait 3 years for a new album or EP.

At this time we don’t plan to play any shows though, due to the reasons mentioned above. We hope you like ‘Traces‘ and we’re more than happy to be somehow back in the game. Stay tuned for more!”
