Awake At Last have premiered a new song titled “This Means War.” This track features Adelitas Way’s Rick DeJesus and a lyric video for it can be found below:
Awake At Last commented:
“When we recorded this song last fall, we originally wrote it about the apocalypse and fighting to survive. With everything going on in the world right now, we wanted to address the current events in our video and the song took on a double meaning to stand up and use your voice to speak up and fight for what you think is right. We can see that right now in the Black Lives Matters protests throughout the country
We were also touched by the actions of Police Sergeant Chris Swanson in Flint, Michigan lead by positive example and unite with protesters
As a band that stands for positivity, we want to see everyone stand TOGETHER united as one and fight against hatred and injustice and to see the change we want, without allowing us to be divided. Take care of each other and hold on!

Sevendust have premiered a lyric video for their cover of Soundgarden‘s “The Day I Tried To Live.“ You can check that out below:
Lajon Witherspoon commented:
“Soundgarden is such an important band to all of us in Sevendust and this love for them goes all the way back to when we were starting. We discussed trying to do one of their songs and our producer Elvis [Baskette] suggested ‘The Day I Tried To Live.’ I would have been fine with any of those songs personally.
When I first heard it, I thought the lyrics were timeless. The lyrics are about trying to experience new things and change the way you live, and we see examples of that every day with what is happening around the world. To have the chance to cover this song and release it is so special to all of us. Thank you, Chris Cornell and Soundgarden.”
Jon Schaffer (Iced Earth) has premiered a lyric video for “Dracula (A Narrative Soundscape).” This version of the track will appear on a new audio CD that will be released alongside his upcoming book “Wicked Words And Epic Tales.” More details on that release can be found HERE. Schaffer commented:
“Brothers and sisters, I hope you dig the new lyric video for ‘Dracula (A Narrative Soundscape)’,” explains Schaffer. “I was stoked to find out that ‘Dracula’ featuring Bela Lugosi was in the public domain. He was the ultimate Dracula to me, and it made this a lot of fun. Enjoy!”
Grave Digger have premiered a lyric video for their song “Barbarian.” This track is from the band’s latest album “Fields Of Blood.” The group commented:
“BARBARIAN … the new Grave Digger single ‘Barbarian’ from the album Fields Of Blood is Teutonic steel in its purest form. No prisoners are taken here… you can feel how Cumberland pushes the “Highland Cleanings” and how whole villages are getting destroyed. He violates the Highlander women and kills everything in his way. His indescribable Cruelty is unparalleled in the history of Scotland. ‘Barbarian’ will become another band classic. Chorus will be hammered in your head… ‘Cold blooded murderer, Killer of the Jacobites, Butcher of Culloden, Cumberland the BARBARIAN’.”
Disciples Of Verity (Living Colour, ex-God Forbid, etc.) have premiered a new song titled “The Flow.” This track features Sevendust’s Morgan Rose and it will appear on the group’s upcoming album “Pragmatic Sanction.” Frontman Corey Glover commented:
“The idea that the word isn’t giving you what you deserve is universal. Given the unrest in the world, today it’s more than an idea.”
