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.”

01. “Worlds Away”

Cadaver Premiere “Morgue Ritual” Video, Reveal Details For New Album “Edder & Bile”

Cadaver, the band featuring Anders Odden (Satyricon) and Dirk Verbeuren (Megadeth), have premiered a new video for their new song “Morgue Ritual.” This track is from the band’s new album “Edder & Bile,” which will be released on November 27.

“Edder & Bile” Track Listing:

01. “Morgue Ritual”
02. “Circle Of Morbidity”
03. “Feed The Pigs”
04. “Final Fight”
05. “Deathmachine”
06. “Reborn”
07. “The Pestilence”
08. “Edder & Bile”
09. “Years Of Nothing”
10. “Let Me Burn”

Odden said the following about the record:

“I met Dirk Verbeuren during the 70000 Tons Of Metal festival in 2014. He was sitting in for Frost in Satyricon and we played two shows together. It turned out that Dirk was a huge Cadaver fan, and at the time, I had several songs in the making for what I thought might be a solo album. The idea of kicking this all into the third version of Cadaver came into life and we started to share ideas. We had about 10 songs by the time Dirk was on tour in Europe with Megadeth in 2016. They played in my neighborhood and we spent the afternoon jamming. Cadaver was reborn. I started to pile up ideas for new tracks and time went by.

I really wanted this to sound like Cadaver and be up to date, yet timeless. The music is what we both consider as death metal. I have my own way of writing riffs and he has his own way of expressing them on drums that just fits and sounds great.

We finally found the time to hit the studio in early 2019 and recorded the album in L.A. where Dirk lives and works.

The music just sparks of energy and freshness from the experience we had jamming together. We are truly kindred spirits and are in this for the long run, for sure. ‘Edder & Bile’ is the manifestation of our commitment to music and the start of everlasting life for the old Cadaver.”

Verbeuren added:

“‘Hallucinating Anxiety’ threw me for a loop when I first heard it as a teenager. As such albums tend to do, it quickly became one of my favorites. I followed Cadaver through various incarnations over the years, and when the chance to work with Anders unexpectedly presented itself, needless to say, I didn’t have to mull it over.

Our goal was for ‘Edder & Bile’ to capture the spontaneous, filthy energy of death metal. It was an effortless collaboration — things just naturally fell into place and the result speaks for itself. Feast upon this, death fiends!”

Smith & Myers (Shinedown) Release New Song “Bad At Love” & Cover Of Billie Eilish’s “Bad Guy”

Smith & Myers, the project featuring Shinedown’s Brent Smith and Zach Myers, previously announced that they will be releasing a new album, titled “Volume 1,” on October 9 and now it looks like more new music is on the way. The duo have now confirmed that they will be releasing another album, titled “Volume 2,” on October 23. The first two tracks from that effort, “Bad At Love” and a cover of Billie Eilish’s “Bad Guy,” can be found below:

Smith commented:

“‘Bad At Love’ was one of the very first original songs to be written for the project. I think ultimately the song was born from my own romantic relationships. When I love someone, I love them fully, and sometimes the passion can be too much. I always know when it’s time to move on. That being said, I am extremely grateful that I am still very good friends with the ladies I have loved, and still love, to this day.”

Myers added:

“‘Bad At Love’ was one of the first original songs we wrote for this album … Lyrically, Brent was writing about things in his life that maybe we wouldn’t really touch on with Shinedown and I think it came out to be an incredibly naked and honest song. And I think ‘Bad Guy’ turned out very cool — it’s a nice bluesy version of the song.”

01. “Not Mad Enough”
02. “Rockin’ In The Free World” (Neil Young cover)

Yashira Premiere “Shards Of Heaven” Music Video, Reveal Details For New Album “Fail To Be”

Yashira have premiered a new video for their new song “Shards Of Heaven.” This track is from the band’s new album “Fail To Be,” which will be released on December 11.

The band said the following about the song:

“The song is about how violence is used to gain power over people, and specific situations. It’s about how violence and power are used perpetually throughout history to create false realities for those safeguarded and protected from and by the violence.”

They also added the following about the album:

“Writing for this record began right after ‘Shrine‘ was released. Seth was still with us while we were writing for this; the sound was evolving a lot from the beginning stages up to when he passed. When we decided to move forward with Ryan, all we had were very blown-out voice memo recordings of the songs, so there was a lot of necessary reworking. For the tracks to be as good as they could be, we wrote to our chemistry and strengths with Ryan, and with a much more pinpointed idea of what we wanted out of our sound, we were able to get into a groove.

Recording ‘Fail To Be‘ was a different experience for all of us. We’d never been in a studio setting like we were at Silver Bullet as far as putting aside three weeks to crank out a record. We learned a lot from working with Greg and Chris on so many different levels. This setting had us eating/sleeping/breathing this record, and that kind of environment brought out a focus none of us had ever known. We were all dialed in, and we think it shows. Us, Greg and Chris were able to create something we’re all very proud of making.”

“Fail To Be” Track Listing:

01. “The Constant”
02. “Shards Of Heaven”
03. “The Weight”
04. “Impasse”
05. “Shades Erased”
06. “Amnesia”
07. “Narrowed In Mirrored Light”

We’ve been working on it for well over a year and really trying to zero in on what the new version of Within The Ruins was going to sound like, and we’re very proud of the new direction. ‘Deliverance‘ is a great representation of the darker, angrier approach we wanted to take and felt it was an appropriate first track to release.

This album also could have easily been 3 EPs, you really have to listen to the whole thing in order to fully enjoy it. It opens the door for what is next.”

“Reports out of Jerome, Ariz. confirm the impending arrival of Existential Reckoning, a 12-song album from the special agents operating under code name Puscifer. The release is scheduled for an Oct. 30 arrival via Alchemy Recordings/Puscifer Entertainment/BMG.

The agents, Mat Mitchell (guitar, bass, keys) and Carina Round (vocals, keys), with agent-in-training Maynard James Keenan (vocals, stories) a.k.a. Dick Merkin, preview the forthcoming release with ‘The Underwhelming’ (listen via the link below).

In a report to commanding officers, the trio said: ‘In the Summer of 2016, we received a call from Hildy Berger, Billy D’s loving wife. [REDACTED]. Billy D, rumored to have been carrying nothing but a bottle of wine and a mysterious briefcase, had disappeared without a trace somewhere in the high deserts of the Southwestern United States.

Rumors of alien abduction were at the forefront throughout the dark web chatter. Therefore traditional methods of tracking a lost and hopeless drunkard in a dirty leisure suit were not an option. [REDACTED].

We hypothesized the only way to locate the subject was to [REDACTED] construct traversable bridges between intuition and technology, requiring us to explore the metaphorical mycelium between Math and Passion, Art and Order, and Hope and Proof. Through these methods redacted we are able to pinpoint the exact location of both Billy D and the mysterious briefcase.’

The agents recruited back-up: Greg Edwards (an experienced Agent having worked in operations classified as Failure and Autolux; bass, guitar, keys), Gunnar Olsen (drums) and Sarah Jones (drums). [REDACTED]. Existential Reckoning was produced by Mat Mitchell and Puscifer. The album was recorded and mixed by Mat Mitchell at Puscifer Studios in North Hollywood, Calif.

Album pre-orders (https://linktr.ee/puscifer) include a number of limited edition vinyl variants including pure clear (indie retail exclusive), high dispersion gold, a wine & vinyl bundle featuring ‘oakwood’ and trans red with black swirl versions as well as a translucent tri-color clear blend (Revolver exclusive). Digital pre-orders include an instant download of both ‘Apocalyptical’ and ‘The Underwhelming.'”

Amahiru (Kreator, Etc.) To Release Debut Album In November

Guitarist/bassist Frédéric Leclercq (Kreator, ex-DragonForce) and guitarist Saki (Mary’s Blood, Nemophila) have launched a new project called Amahiru. The band’s self-titled debut album will be released on November 27 and it will also feature drummer Mike Heller (Fear Factory, Raven), keyboardist Coen Janssen (Epica), and vocalist Archie Wilson. Elize Ryd (Amaranthe), the late Sean Reinert (ex-Cynic), and Kifu Mitsuhashi also guested on the effort. The first single “Hours” will be released on September 25.

“Amahiru” Track Listing:

01. “Innocent”
02. “WTTP”
03. “Hours”
04. “Way Out”
05. “Ninja No Tamashii”
06. “Vanguard”
07. “Bringing Me Down”
08. “Lucky Star” (feat. Elize Ryd)
09. “Waves”
10. “Samurai”
11. “Bringing Me Down” (alternative version) (feat. Sean Reinert)
12. “Zombi” (bonus track)
13. “Shine” (Japanese bonus track)

The Japanese edition will also include a bonus DVD featuring two music videos.

Leclercq said the following about the project:

“We were trying to find a name and I had a dream in which someone was asking me to sign a contract for this band, Amahiru, and the number 13 kept appearing in the contract. When I woke up, I actually remembered the dream vividly and started to do my little ‘thinking process.’ I made the name Amahiru, so that it would be easier to pronounce for the Japanese people. But I wonder, does it mean anything? I type the name on the Internet, nothing. Then I tried Hamahiru just for different spelling sake, and here is the freaky thing, Hamahiru means 13 in Basquian. And I don’t speak Basquian at all!”

“I’m influenced by many artists, pretty much anything I hear I can consider an influence and music should be the reflection of that. With Amahiru, I personally wanted to do something groovy and melodic and still metal/hard rock. We didn’t want to make 12 songs sounding the same. Saki and I have a lot in common musically and it was really easy to work together in the same direction.”
