Weak13 Premiere “Loyal Coward” Video

Weak13 premiered a new video for “Loyal Coward” off their album “They Live.” You can watch that below:

Nick J Townsend commented on the song:

“We’re musicians; not louts. There’s always been those boring critics who label us as a rah rah band because they aren’t smart enough to adequately address the music.”

“It’s a tune that lyrically means a lot to me; I don’t really care what it means to you; no offence intended. There are no subliminal messages in this song either; you have my word as a professional liar.”

Wesley Smith added:

“Yeah, I guess with Loyal Coward we’re showing folks who screw with us that we’re songwriters.”

“It’s a pop song with an unpopular theme which is depression and addiction; obviously it’s different because we’re using a variety of acoustic instruments; Nick wrote most of it in about two days during a very low point. He was a total mess a few years ago after a relationship breakup so I told him to just write”.

The clip is set in the Viking Age and features special guest appearances from the Svartland Living History and Birmingham DJ Pandora Rox. Townsend said the following about that:

“It was originally going to be set in the present but I shelved the idea as it seemed too dull so recreating a historical period seemed more interesting. The really smart thing for me to say is that the Vikings in the story represent alcohol and how it can screw up everything in your life or everyone around you but I just made that up a minute ago to sound like I know what I’m talking about; I think that’s definitely the reason I’ll give from now on though.”

Benighted Premiere “Leatherface” Music Video

Benighted have premiered a new video for their song “Leatherface.” This track is from their latest album “Necrobreed.” The group commented:

“We are proud and stoked to unleash this new creepy episode of our ‘Necrobreed‘ story in the shape of a music video for the track ‘Leatherface‘! Kick Your Eyes Productions once again did a great job and delivered this second piece of insanity starring the gorgeous Cecylia Suicide! Enjoy!”

Samael Premiere “Rite Of Renewal” Live Video

Samael have premiered a new live video for their song “Rite Of Renewal.” This track is from the band’s latest album “Hegemony.”

The band commented:

“This is the first song from ‘Hegemony’ that we presented live and it became an instant classic. The video was shot in Les Docks in Lausanne during the first show that followed the release of ‘Hegemony’. It was later edited by Sergey Ulyanov, who previously worked on other visuals for us. The song itself is a mid/uptempo track that shows a more technical side of our music. The dynamic is kept by altering fast and dense parts with open and heavy ones until the grand final with super heavy riffs and apocalyptic keyboard parts. What better title for a song than ‘Rite Of Renewal’ to start a new year? 2018, here we go!”

Hollywood Undead Premiere “Your Life” Music Video

Hollywood Undead have premiered a new video for their song “Your Life.” This song is from their latest album “Five.” Johnny 3 Tears commented:

“It might be cliché to say, but it needs to be repeated: You can’t waste your fucking time. Every moment you waste worrying is a moment you could’ve been doing something that might actually have consequence by the day you die.”
