Lost Symphony Premiere “A Murder Of Crows” Video

Lost Symphony have premiered a new video for “A Murder Of Crows“ off their new album “Chapter II” (out October 16). That track is inspired by the memory of late All That Remains guitarist Oli Herbert and it features Jon Donais (Anthrax, Shadows Fall), Matt Bachand (Shadows Fall), and Jimi Bell (Autograph, House Of Lords).

Lost Symphony’s Benny Goodman commented:

“Someone had sent me a picture of hundreds of crows over a funeral reception. They asked me if I knew what a group of crows was called? ‘No idea?’ A murder of crows. Except it’s not just the birds doing it.”

Donais added:

“Working with Lost Symphony was such a blast for me! It’s an honor to play on a project with some of the best heavy-metal [and] rock guitarists out there. This is a must for anyone who loves shred guitar!”

All That Remains Planning To Release New Album In 2021

All That Remains’ Phil Labonte has confirmed that the band are working on new material. He recently told FM99 WNOR that the group are “looking to have a record out, if not first quarter of next year, then early part second quarter.”

Labonte said the following about album release plans:

“We’re looking to have a record out, if not first quarter of next year, then early part second quarter, so springtime.”

He also discussed how the tragic death of Oli Herbert may influence the new music:

“Our guitar player, Oli Herbert, passed away a couple of years back, so this will be the first record that we write without him. He was a big part of the writing process for so long, it’s gonna definitely have some different elements, and it’s gonna sound different. Mike [Martin] and I, we’ve always been a big part of the writing as well, so it’s not gonna be completely different, but there’s gonna be some noticeable changes, I’m sure. It’s just gonna be weird. We haven’t written a record without him.”

Labonte also discussed what it has been like working remotely during the coronavirus pandemic:

“There is definitely something to be said for being in the same place. ‘Cause you’ll come up with an idea and you’ll be trying something and trying to articulate what you’re thinking or trying to get someone else to understand it, and that’ll make someone else’s brain start working and they’ll come up with ideas.

When we’re writing stuff, there’s a ‘no no’ rule — you’re not allowed to say ‘no.’ You can say, ‘I’m not into that, but we’ll try it.’ [You] always have to try it. And the reason you have to try every idea is because even if the idea that’s trying to be related to someone else isn’t good, a third person may be, like, ‘Ooh, ooh, ooh. That made me think of this.’ So we miss out on that [by working remotely]. So I think there’s always gonna be value being in the same room. But [working remotely] does allow us to come up with ideas on our own and send them to other people and be, like, ‘Hey, this is what I’m thinking,’ and do it in real time. Everyone’s heard of the cloud. Well, Pro Tools has access to the cloud as well, so I can put an idea down, put it on the cloud, and Jason [Costa], our drummer, can grab it right after I put it up there, put some drums down on it, and then I can grab it right away. So you can literally have the ideas bouncing back and forth within minutes. And it’s even easier than e-mailing a whole project — it’s all there for everyone to access all the time.”

Perpetual Doom (All That Remains, Etc.) Reunite, Share Re-Recorded Version Of “Apt. 213”

All That Remains frontman Phil Labonte’s early band Perpetual Doom have reunited. The group, which also features Steve Gonsalves (“Ghost Hunters”, “Ghost Nation”), Ken Robert (Split Shift), and William Brault (Split Shift), have been in the studio as of late and they recently shared a re-recorded version of “Apt. 213,” a track that was inspired by Jeffrey Dahmer.

Robert told Outburn the following:

“We had tossed around the idea of reuniting or possibly redoing some of the old songs from our first demo, but never could get everyone together to make it happen until now. It seemed only fitting for us to go back and reconstruct what was one of our ‘essential songs,’ which is why we choose ‘Apt. 213‘ as a jumping off point to see what a modern version of Perpetual Doom would sound like.

The original incarnation of the song was a bit immature and somewhat outdated so we wanted to approach it as a re-imagining. ‘I wonder what this song would sound like with a bunch of unnecessary riffs cut out and completely overhauled in a modern way?’

So, some parts were moved around and I completely overhauled the lyrics to convey what I believe may have gone on in the psyche of Jeffrey Dahmer while he committed unspeakable acts. This is my interpretation of what I imagine someone of his nature might have mentally gone through.”

He continued:

“The song ‘Apt. 213’ was originally written back in 1993 and was one of our first songs that set the tone for the band’s sound and direction. It was inspired by the fascination everyone had for Jeffrey Dahmer at that time.

He was in headlines for years, and his macabre killings affected so many of us that it was almost impossible not think about. Our original singer at that time, Scott Estes, came up with the idea to write lyrics about what may have gone on where Jeffrey committed some of these atrocities, inside apt 213.

Then we added the crushing riff you hear at the beginning of the song, and Steve added this little jazzy type bell on the ride and it all came together from there. Soon after, Scott had left the band, and Phil and I started doing vocals together and essentially trading off with one another.

That sound became somewhat the foundation of what Perpetual Doom was to be for years to come. The process of recording new Perpetual Doom songs has been a welcomed challenge, and we are thrilled to share our progress and passion with everyone as we continue to put new material out.”

Gonsalves added:

“It has been a lot of fun reimagining the structure and direction of these songs to bring them to a modern landscape but still preserving their original death metal roots. We were just writing about stuff we were into—horror movies, true crime, world views, and macabre history.

With the first track, ‘Apt. 213,’ it’s about the serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer and his state of mental health. It isn’t glorifying his acts but quite the opposite. What we found intriguing was the state of mind someone like that must be in. It’s more like a historical account of a serial killer with a brutal soundtrack.”
