Brutus Premiere “War” Live Video

Brutus have premiered a new live video for their song “War.“ The clip was filmed during the band’s May 29, 2019 show in Ghent, Belgium. A new live album featuring that performance, titled “Live In Ghent,” was released today (October 23). The group commented:

“Four videos have already been released: ‘Fire‘, ‘Cemetery‘, ‘All Along‘ and ‘Sugar Dragon’. Right now, we are happy to announce our personal favourite: ‘War‘. This song is super special to us. Not only does it reflect a tough period, but this song has set a new standard for our writing ever since. We are so happy we can share this live version.”

Devin Townsend Shares “War” Live Video From “Order Of Magnitude – Empath Live Volume 1”

Devin Townsend has shared a new live video for his song “War.” The footage is taken from his new live album/Blu-ray, “Order Of Magnitude – Empath Live Volume 1,” which will be released on October 23. That set was filmed at the Roundhouse in London, England on December 12, 2019 and it featured the following artists: Ché Aimee Dorval (Casualties Of Cool), Morgan Ågren (Kaipa), Mike Keneally (Dethklok), Markus Reuter (Stick Men), Nathan Navarro, Diego Tejeida (Haken), Samantha Preis, Anne Preis, and Arabella Packford.

Townsend commented:

“Hello folks, here’s another song from the ‘Order Of Magnitude‘ Blu-ray. Amidst the chaos of recent times, I look back at this concert as being another world in a lot of ways, and although the DVD has many different feels throughout the concert, this song, ‘War’ is indicative of the beginning vibes of the show.
The whole idea with this concert was to experiment with playing songs from my catalog that didn’t rely on backing tracks or clicks, so assembling 10 people onstage to do this was no small feat. I wanted to create an experience for band and audience alike that was creative and without boundaries (to the best of our abilities), and I am very proud of it.

The next song we will release will be a different vibe, but for now, please enjoy this take on a song of mine from the Infinity era. It was originally about fighting back against your own self destructive mechanisms and thoughts, so maybe that’s appropriate for what has been going on recently. Again; Thank you for the support and I hope you are finding the strength to get through this chaotic year.”

Demon Hunter Premiere “The Negative” Music Video

Demon Hunter have premiered a new video for their song “The Negative.” This track is from the band’s album “War,” which was released earlier this year along with another album called “Peace.”

Ryan Clark said the following:

“The video for ‘The Negative‘ was directed and edited by Oleg Masnyy. Oleg and I shot a variety of vignettes—including myself singing the song—as well as a number of moving objects to create texture and diversity.

We paired our shots with found footage, and edited the entire thing in a highly-crushed monochromatic style, utilizing only stark black, white, and red. Our goal was to create something that felt gritty and punk —like the song itself— influenced by ’90s DIY show posters and silkscreen shirt graphics.

The images, scenes, and objects themselves tie into the theme of the song, which is—to put it simply—the consistency of humankind’s failure.”

Demon Hunter Premiere “More Than Bones” Music Video

Demon Hunter have premiered a new video for their song “More Than Bones.” This track is from the band’s album “Peace,” which was released earlier this year along with another album called “War.”

Ryan Clark told Kerrang! the following:

“I was thinking of what an amazing thing music is, and the idea of preserving someone’s life beyond their death. There have been a lot of musicians’ deaths over the last few years that I’d started thinking about, whether that was Bowie or Prince or Waylon or Chris Cornell, and I thought, despite how tragic it is to lose those people, how awesome it is to have this catalog of music from each of those people.

There might be people generations from now who listen to this music, and it really helps them and changes their life in some positive way. So ‘More Than Bones‘ is basically saying that when I leave this earth, I’ll leave you more than bones—I’ll leave you all of my thoughts, and all of my hopes and dreams and my desire to connect and resonate with people through this music.”

Demon Hunter Premiere New Song “Ash”

Demon Hunter have premiered a new song titled “Ash.” This track is from the band’s new album “War,” which will be released on March 1 along with another new album titled “Peace.”

Ryan Clark told Loudwire the following:

“‘Ash’ is a no frills, anthemic onslaught, berating our infatuation with fleeting possessions. It’s a reminder to myself as much as anyone else. I collect pretty much everything I couldn’t afford as a kid: skateboards, shoes, artwork, antiques… you name it. And I love this stuff. Still, I know I can’t ‘take it with me’ as they say.

In classic Demon Hunter fashion, we wanted to ensure that War had at least one faster thrash number in the vein of ‘Storm the Gates of Hell,’ ‘Crucifix,’ or ‘The World Is a Thorn.’ ‘Ash’ is the resident barn burner track for this album. This was the last song that we’d written for the heavier of these two records, and is the only song written by Patrick, Jeremiah and myself.”

Demon Hunter Premiere “On My Side” Music Video

Demon Hunter have premiered a new video for their song “On My Side.” This track is from the band’s new album “War,” which will be released on March 1 along with another new album titled “Peace.” Ryan Clark commented:

“[We tried to] keep things straightforward with regards to the overall approach. Though the video is strictly performance, we did have some fun by filming each setup the same way a number of times using different lighting scenarios in each. This meant performing it the exact same way (hand motions, body positioning) over and over, but ultimately allowed us to toggle between looks while maintaining the same general positioning, which gives a really cool effect in the end.”
