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”

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!”

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!”

My Dying Bride To Release New EP “Macabre Cabaret”, Premiere New Song “A Secret Kiss”

My Dying Bride will be releasing a new EP titled “Macabre Cabaret” on November 20. The effort will feature three songs including the title track, “A Secret Kiss,” and “A Purse Of Gold And Stars.” Physical copies will also come with an additional “hidden gem.” A lyric video for the first single “A Secret Kiss” can be found below:

Aaron Stainthorpe said the following about the new songs:

“‘Macabre Cabaret’ delves into the shadow empire of dark love and the consequences of unchecked sexuality. The deep passion of physical desire and its all-conquering rage over pure love is written bleakly here. A destructive essence within the soul can’t help but rear its ugly head.

‘A Secret Kiss’ is the final and lasting mark on the soul any human will feel when the lights have dulled and nothing meaningful remains for them. All religion features a shadow creature who arrives at the point of extinction and the release of the human soul, to either guide them to majesty or allow them do fall eternally into the ether.

‘A Purse Of Gold And Stars’ is where we keep our hopes and desires and affection, perhaps in a dreamlike state, unattainable yet we still reach out for them. The trinkets and shiny baubles we call happiness and love are what we try so hard to keep close and protect. But it is never quite like that in real life and is often a struggle tainted with sadness but still, we hold the purse close and in tight cold hands.”

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.”

The Night Flight Orchestra (Soilwork, Arch Enemy, Etc.) Premiere “Impossible” Music Video, Stream Cover Of Cheap Trick’s “Reach Out”

The Night Flight Orchestra (Soilwork, Arch Enemy, etc.) have premiered a new video for their new song “Impossible.” You can check that out below. The single also features a cover of Cheap Trick’s “Reach Out” on the b-side. You can stream that below as well.

The Night Flight Orchestra commented:

“Some bands might get depressed when the summer ends and the darkness is coming closer. But not The Night Flight Orchestra. Instead, they choose to celebrate the summers that were, the summers that might never come again, but will always be with you, like a tiny sprinkle of Champagne to thaw your frost-bitten heart.

‘Impossible‘ is a song for all the hopeless romantics who are hanging on by a thread to the memories of their vivid summer escapades, hoping that it will help them survive the approaching winter

We thank Bonnie Jean for some amazing dancing on the beaches of California. Sebastian Forslund put several impressions together and created a wonderful video out of it.

The ”B-side” is a cover of ‘Reach Out‘ by Cheap Trick, and everything except the lead vocals and drums were recorded on tour, on tour buses and backstage rooms throughout Europe, before we had to head home because the the borders were starting to close down.

But this is our love letter to you, from The Night Flight Orchestra, hoping that you’ll be with us through the rough winter months coming up.”

Alekhine’s Gun Premiere New Song “Ngepar Chiwa”

Alekhine’s Gun, the band featuring “Orange Is The New Black” actress Jessica Pimentel, have premiered a new song titled “Ngepar Chiwa.” This track will appear on the group’s upcoming EP “Year Of The Lazerus.”

The group told Revolver the following:

“Death is the one common denominator that pervades all existence. As most of us get bogged down with all the worldly goals, desires and fears of human life, how often do we sit and contemplate our own Death? In Tibetan Buddhism we focus, meditate on and practice our own death on a daily basis. Nothing in this world is yours. Even your own body will betray you. At the moment of death you will lose everything. This moment can come at any time. Constantly reminding yourself of your impermanence causes a radical shift in one’s mind stream freeing you from attachments, hatred, greed and fear which cause daily suffering and helps you reevaluate what is truly important. By becoming friends with death we are able to live a more perfect life. By eliminating the fear of the unknown we can have a peaceful death, which not only benefits ourselves by helping us to easily reach our next plane of existence properly but helps ease the minds and suffering that we cause by our departure from those who love us.”
