Pissing Razors Premiere Video For Cover Of Nailbomb’s “Wasting Away” Featuring Skinlab’s Steev Esquivel

Pissing Razors have teamed up with Skinlab’s Steev Esquivel for a cover of Nailbomb‘s “Wasting Away.” You can find an official video for that below. The track was released ahead of Pissing Razors’ upcoming album “Eulogy Death March” and guitarist Mat Lynch had the following to say about it:

“Shortly after Nailbomb’s 1994 ‘Point Blank‘ release, we added ‘Wasting Away‘ to our live set simply for its sheer intensity, brutally honest approach, and blatant raw attack. There’s no smoke and mirrors, no fancy production tricks there. The track demands attention, commands respect, and we are proud to revisit its place in the early development of our own musical pursuits and sound. The pure cut-throat approach to its sonic foundation is what we have consistently strived to ingrain into our own body of work and it still holds true today. We hope we do it justice…”

Therion Premiere Music Video For New Song “Tuonela” Featuring Marko Hietala (Ex-Nightwish)

Therion have premiered a new video for their new song “Tuonela.” The track, which features Marko Hietala (ex-Nightwish), appears on the band’s new album “Leviathan,” which was released today (January 22). Christofer Johnsson commented:

“Like everyone else, I’m very sad and was also surprised to read that Marko is leaving Nightwish. But I understand the meaning of his reasons and there are many that are frustrated about the same things. But Marko has been active as a professional recording artist with various quality bands since the mid-’80s, so I am absolutely sure we will see his return to the scene in time. He is simply too good to not be involved with music. But right now I hope he will take a good amount of time to just find himself and get the full energy and inspiration back on track.”

“We were hoping to make a video that offered a similar energy and excitement to the live element of this Fever 333 project. I also wanted to give a nod to ‘Song 2‘ one of the coolest music videos ever made. Put these vibes together and we ended up with this.”

Soen Premiere “Illusion” Music Video, Postpone European/UK Tour

Soen have premiered a new video for their new song “Illusion.” This track is from the band’s new album “Imperial,” which will be released on January 29.

Drummer Martin Lopez (ex-Opeth) commented:

“‘Illusion‘ is a song about the shared responsibility amongst us if we wish to improve the world, change has to be made by us, you and me…the people. It’s about the frustration of feeling powerless but also the hope in realizing that things can be changed for the better. If we stop criticizing each other and making enemies of ourselves by blindly following the ideas of politicians and their media.”

Pupil Slicer Premiere “Wounds Upon My Skin” Video, Reveal Details For Debut Album “Mirrors”

Pupil Slicer have premiered a new video for their new song “Wounds Upon My Skin.” This track is from the band’s debut album “Mirrors,” which will be released on March 12.

Vocalist/guitarist Katie Davies said the following about the new song and album:

“‘Wounds Upon My Skin‘ was one of the first tracks we wrote for this album and marked a turning point where I realised I could really write anything I wanted to put in a song and make it work. It was also the starting place for the thematic elements of the album, it was the first time I had explored more introspective and personal concepts in my lyrics.”

“I used Mirrors as a vehicle to exorcise many painful experiences; topics of abuse, social anxiety and depression alongside the injustices, iniquities and oppression that many are forced to endure simply due to their existence make up the fabric of this LP. The title Mirrors itself is an example of these themes of introspection whilst also representing the reflection of the reality of society many face today. The response we got to our first single was overwhelmingly positive and we can’t wait for you to experience the rest of what we have put together.”

“Mirrors” Track Listing:

01. “Martyrs”
02. “Stabbing Spiders”
03. “L’Appel Du Vide”

10. “Mirrors Are More Fun Than Television”
11. “Save The Dream, Kill Your Friends”
12. “Collective Unconscious”

Weezer Announce New Album “OK Human”, Premiere “All My Favorite Songs” Video

“OK Human” Track Listing:

01. “All My Favorite Songs”
02. “Aloo Gobi”
03. “Grapes Of Wrath”
04. “Numbers”
05. “Playing My Piano”
06. “Mirror Image”

08. “Bird With A Broken Wing”
09. “Dead Roses”
10. “Everything Happens For A Reason”

12. “La Brea Tar Pits”

The band said the following about the new record:

“During the summer of COVID-19 we grabbed our masks, hit the studio & began to chip away at what is now known as OK Human. An album that was made by a handful of humans using only analog technologies (including a 38 piece orchestra) for all of you humans to consume.

OK Human was made at a time when humans-playing-instruments was a thing of the past. All we could do is look back on ancient times when humans really mattered and when the dark tech-takeover fantasy didn’t exist. We used our instruments to connect to the 1960’s and 1970’s and, with the orchestra, back to the 18th and 19th centuries. We had no click track or loops or hi-tech sounds. Not even an electric guitar.”

As previously reported, Weezer are also planning to release another new album titled “Van Weezer” on May 7.
