Nuclear Power Trio Premiere “A Clear And Present Rager” Video

Nuclear Power Trio, the band featuring “Donald Trump,” “Vladimir Putin,” and “Kim Jong-un,” have premiered a new video for the title track of their new EP “A Clear And Present Rager.” That effort will be released on October 30.

“A Clear And Present Rager” Track Listing:

01. “A Clear And Present Rager”
02. “Grab ‘Em By The Pyongyang”
03. “The Fusion Collusion”
04. “Ukraine In The Membrane”
05. “Mutually Assured Seduction”

“Trump” said the following about the EP:

“Frankly, a lot of power trio recordings are just pathetic. We thought about records we all liked sonically and kept coming back to ‘Cattle Decapitation‘, so it was terrific that Dave [Otero, producer] had us all out to beautiful Colorado to golf and record.”

“Putin” added the following when asked about the band’s plans to achieve peace through music:

“Everything will probably never be good for people, but we have to try, because I truly believe in the power of music. Do you see my heart?” Vladimir was shirtless, on one of his majestic white horses, tapping a finger to his chest. “I play from here.”

The following was also said in a press release:

“The EP’s October release is set immediately before the United States presidential elections, a timely moment to catalyze a bold and conscientious path towards world peace. Our world has seen more than enough conflict. If there’s a chance at unity, if there’s a chance to turn gnarly riffage into a better society, then it’s a chance that must be taken.

These three leaders are no strangers to stopping at nothing to get what they want – and they want peace. The unknown future rolls toward us, but we face it, for the first time, with a sense of hope. If these three men, these world leaders of differing views and morals, can learn the value of a peaceful existence on Earth through music, maybe we can too.”

Nothing Premiere “Bernie Sanders” Video

Nothing have premiered a new video for their new song “Bernie Sanders.” This track is from the band’s new album “The Great Dismal,“ which will be released on October 30. Dominic Palermo commented:

“Originally, it was about being lost in Japan… both figuratively, and literally. While searching relentlessly for an answer, you typically find yourself unearthing deeper meaning and often prompting more questions. By the end of it all you don’t even know if you were ever lost at all or if you were exactly where you were supposed to be the whole time. I really don’t even know what it means anymore.”

Testament’s Alex Skolnick Blasts Donald Trump With New Rap Song “Trump Sucks”

Testament guitarist Alex Skolnick has blasted Donald Trump and his administration with a new rap song called “Trump Sucks.” He said the following about that:

“This song just poured out of me yesterday. It was completed in a matter of hours. To all the # Trump2020 and # Maga folks who’ve been flooding my timelines ever since my post the other day about the election, I’d like to say thank you, sincerely. You’ve inspired me to do something a bit different (for me, anyway): Rapping Enjoy! 😘 PS No time for debates here. If you hate it, please ignore, wait for another post you like better or unfollow. Cheers 🍻 And oh yeah.. #trumpsucks”

Thank you @nerdsvote for the cool t-shirt! If you hate thoughts on politics, please read no further (it’s on you if you choose otherwise) _** There’s a Presidential election coming up, not sure if you’ve heard? (I’m kidding. That shouldn’t have to be spelled out, but here we are). I’ve been relatively quiet considering the fires that are going on (literally & figuratively), doing 90%+ music-related, non-political posts. Yet that’s still too much for some, so a warning: A few more such posts may be coming between now & the election. A common complaint by characters such as the ever-ranting Don Jr: “These entertainer types are trying to tell us how to think!!” (Hey @donaldjtrumpjr: Stop being a f-cking snowflake).No one is telling you how to think. It’s more like this “Here’s how I feel based on real world thoughts & experiences, not someone yelling on TV. If it’s not asking too much may you consider a different point of view?” Let’s stop the name calling & accusations that so many do. Honest question: Are you “conservative” and afraid of “radical” ideas? Well here’s the most radical concept there is: Refusing to commit to a peaceful transfer of power in the event of an election loss. That is RADICAL & HATEFUL OF AMERICA. Those who agree with me on this include more conservative/pro-2nd Amendment folks crossing party lines (at least on the top of the ticket, for POTUS) than ever before in history. Imagine if things were reversed? Suppose you had this many Democrat-leaning folks running for the hills from the current Dem POTUS, 99.9% of the Dem party in fear of saying anything our Prez might not agree with for fear of an angry tweet storm & riled up constituents?? If that were the case, I promise you I’d be proudly voting Republican this one time. Yet this IS what’s happening, only the other way around. Therefore I believe it’s more urgent than ever we vote out the one who expresses that view & not vote for anyone who supports him. Please don’t give me a “But…” “What about…” “It’s BOTH sides” No. No no no. Just no If you use an out of context quote to make a point, you have no point. Ok. Rant over😅 So: ARE YOU REGISTERED 2 #VOTE? @nerdsvote can help!

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”

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.”
