Killswitch Engage Share “Us Against The World” Live Video

Killswitch Engage have shared a new live video for their song “Us Against The World.” The footage is taken from the band’s August 2021 livestream show at The Palladium in Worcester, MA. The track is from their latest album “Atonement.” Jesse Leach commented:

“This is one of my favorite songs off the album so I’m glad it is getting some attention and a visual component. It’s a song about facing down the odds and finding confidence to overcome and conquer a situation. I originally wrote it as a battle cry song with my warrior Highland Scottish, Norwegian, and Swedish ancestors in mind. However, it can be about friendship, love, or even the camaraderie of being in a band traveling the world. The title says it all – ‘Us Against The World!’”

Napalm Death’s Mark “Barney” Greenway Guests On New Mass Worship Song “Portal Tombs”

Napalm Death frontman Mark “Barney” Greenway is featured on the title track of Mass Worship‘s new album “Portal Tombs” (out February 4). You can find an official video for that song below:

Mass Worship commented:

“We as humans are approaching a state where we don’t believe in anything, and we can’t seem to envision any alternatives. Our elected leaders are merely there to sustain a seemingly perpetual status quo, and to grab whatever opportunity they can to shift our focus away from what’s important. What happens behind the scenes is a slow and steady collapse of our financial, political, ecological, spiritual and cultural world. We’re all perfectly aware of where we are heading, but we can’t seem to envision any alternative — it’s far too late, and far too terrifying to try to stop what has been started. ‘Portal Tombs‘ symbolizes that Death is the only true way forward. Mass Worship is an attempt at putting the current state of humanity’s affairs and suppressed emotional state into music and words. We want to capture the fears, the pain, the uncertainty and the total disbelief in the future of mankind. As we spiral towards an abyss of our own making, Mass Worship is the soundtrack that will resonate loudest of all.”

Invent Animate Premiere “The Sun Sleeps, As If It Never Was” Music Video

Invent Animate have premiered a new double feature music video featuring the songs from their newly released EP “The Sun Sleeps, As If It Never Was.“ You can watch that below:

Drummer Trey Celaya commented:

“‘The Sun Sleeps, As If It Never Was‘ is a story of two interconnected perspectives of addiction, the afflicted, and the innocent. The afflicted is increasingly consumed by his vices, distracted, and secretive, and ultimately distorts his connection with his loved one, leaving only fractured memories in place of the love they once had.

These lyrics are based on a true story surrounding my family’s history with addiction, and with these songs, I wanted to bring to light how subtle the signs are and how severe the damage can be when these dark secrets stay buried. The importance of perspective has been my biggest takeaway from all of this turmoil, and sadly, most addicts fall into addiction with a spirit of naivety, thinking it will cost them nothing.

If you are the afflicted, consider the cost of losing everything you love and hold dear. If you are the innocent, consider the cost of enabling your loved ones. It is not loving, and it is not too late for recovery.”

Me And That Man (Behemoth) Premiere Music Video For New Song “Angel Of Light” Featuring Myrkur

Me And That Man, the dark folk project featuring Behemoth’s Adam “Nergal” Darski, have premiered a new video for their new song “Angel Of Light.” This track features Myrkur and it will appear on the band’s new album “New Man, New Songs, Same Shit, Vol. 2,” which is set to be released on November 19.

Nergal commented:

“Behold the ‘Angel Of Light’! This song is perhaps the most sinister and dark Americana in our repertoire. Whilst we often offer a little smile and wink with our music, this is pure Luciferian splendour delivered by our very own angel, Amalie from Myrkur. It’s all yours now folks! Enjoy!”

Myrkur added:

“I am excited to collaborate with Nergal on this song and video, where I play the role of a woman who’s captured by the shadow. She looks for ways out and turns to the ‘Angel Of Light’ for guidance and comfort.”

Black Stone Cherry Premiere New Video For Cover Of Tracy Chapman’s “Give Me One Reason”

Black Stone Cherry have premiered a new video for their cover of Tracy Chapman’s “Give Me One Reason.” This track is from the digital expanded edition of the band’s latest album “The Human Condition.” The group commented:

“Tracy Chapman’s voice and songs are absolutely timeless. We have always been fans of her music, especially ‘Give Me One Reason’. Chris [Robertson] has always sounded so great singing this song, so we decided to record a quick version in the studio. We would have never imagined the positive feedback we received from something we thought was just a fun version of an already great song! We hope y’all dig it!”

The Rolling Stones Premiere “Living In The Heart Of Love” Music Video

The Rolling Stones have premiered a new video for their latest single “Living In The Heart Of Love.” This track will appear on the 40th anniversary deluxe edition of “Tattoo You,” which will be released on October 22. More details on that effort can be found HERE.

Hollow Front Premiere “Treading Water” Music Video

Hollow Front have premiered a new video for their latest single “Treading Water.” You can check that out below:

Tyler Tate said the following about the song:

“It’s a song about being dragged under by the negative thoughts in your head and always feeling like you’re taking one step forward and ten steps back. It describes that feeling of drowning in your life, but always fighting and clawing your way back up to the surface, and not believing all the negative things your mind is telling you because you have a purpose to fulfil.

It’s one of my favorite songs that we’ve ever written and I’m absolutely thrilled to release it for the world to hear. ‘Treading Water’ is the first big step towards releasing the best material we’ve created this far in our careers.”

He also added the following about the video:

“It doesn’t really tie in with the theme of the lyrics for the song, per se. We just really wanted to do something exciting and completely different from our previous music videos. Creatively, we tried to branch out and create a video that the viewers couldn’t take their eyes off, with plenty of high energy and high stakes throughout, with an intense focus on the action elements.

Filming ‘Treading Water‘ was by the far the most fun we’ve had a music video shoot ever. We’ve done plenty of ‘low budget’ music videos meant to make the viewer feel the emotions of the song and the weight of the lyrics. So we really went into the process for the ‘Treading Water‘ music video making sure we were doing everything the opposite of that — if it wasn’t fun to shoot, then we weren’t doing our jobs correctly.”

Omnium Gatherum Premiere “Reckoning” Music Video

Omnium Gatherum have premiered a new video for their new song “Reckoning.” This track is from the band’s new album “Origin,“ which will be released on November 5.

Guitarist Markus Vanhala commented:

“‘Reckoning‘ is a certain powersong or an uplifting song which we needed to rise from the depths of a past year, and it was the last song we wrote for the new album. Adult oriented death metal at its finest glory, that dark and shiny place where Def Leppard and death metal meets. Death Leppard, maybe? The music video saved a warm memory from a very hot summer day in my hometown of Kotka, where we played at the rocks of the beautiful island of Rankki. Lying on the rocks zipping cold beer and driving with the boats at the sea. Kotka isn’t that far from Miami, except geographically.”

Vocalist Jukka Pelkonen added:

“This song is clearly and absolutely about a situation where someone is really trying to mess things up and goes about doing it in secrecy. ‘A Story’ about an individual who is so messed up that he/she turns against the people who really matter. This is a certain way to ruin, yet the one doing so denies all responsibility ‘avoiding only the truth’…”
