Cradle Of Filth Perform In New York Alone After Members Of 3TEETH And Once Human Reportedly Test Positive For COVID-19

According to Ghost Cult, Cradle Of Filth ended up performing without supporting acts during their October 11 show at Irving Plaza in New York, NY. 3TEETH and Once Human were supposed to open, but their sets were cut after members of the bands reportedly tested positive for COVID-19. Once Human’s gear was already onstage, but it was quickly removed and replaced with Cradle Of Filth’s gear. None of the bands appear to have addressed the situation, but the tour is scheduled to pick back up at The Agora Theater in Cleveland, OH on October 14.

Once Human Premiere “Only In Death” Music Video

Once Human (ex-Machine Head, etc.) have premiered a new video for their new song “Only In Death.” This track is from the band’s new album “Scar Weaver,“ which will be released on February 11. Vocalist Lauren Hart commented:

“This is my most personal song on the new album. It meant so much to me, that I really needed to get my hands dirty with the visuals. Logan and I filmed everything to keep the song’s the raw meaning. Musically, it’s very emotional and dire, and the outro is probably my favorite piece of music on the album!”

Once Human Premiere Music Video For New Song “Deadlock” Featuring Machine Head’s Robb Flynn

Once Human, the band featuring former Machine Head guitarist Logan Mader, have premiered a new video for their new song “Deadlock.” This track features Machine Head frontman Robb Flynn and it will appear on the band’s new album “Scar Weaver,” which is set to be released on February 11, 2022. Once Human frontwoman Lauren Hart said the following about collaborating with Flynn:

“It was absolutely amazing, are you kidding? didn’t believe it was happening until he sent something back and I heard his voice on our song. I was like, ‘Holy crap! This is real!’ He came back with a new chorus and it was so much better than mine, so my chorus was gone! [Laughs] But then performing with him in the video, that was insane. The energy he brings on stage, he brings in person too. It was a great experience and his energy is so powerful. The video came out amazing!”

Once Human Premiere “Sledgehammer” Music Video

Once Human have premiered a new video for their new song “Sledgehammer.” Guitarist Logan Mader (Machine Head) said the following:

“‘Sledgehammer‘ smashes from start to finish. With insane riffs, relentless drumming and Lauren Hart just kills it!!! Vocally showcasing totally new and powerful cleans in the massive chorus hook, it marks a new chapter in Once Human sound. I had tons of fun producing and mixing this track. Utilizing more analog gear than I normally do it’s really explosive. Our last album sounds good, but this one actually smokes it.”
