DEVILMENT Band Release Official Live Video For 'Hell At My Back'

Witch County nefarious frights DEVILMENT - led by vehement frontman Dani Filth - have released an official live music video for the track 'Hell At My Back', which was shot during the band's storming set at Bloodstock Open Air Festival last year. Watch here: youtu.be/EOIWkEuz1sg
The band states: "The live video for 'Hell At My Back’ was taken from Devilment’s performance at Bloodstock 2017, which was an awesome show played at an awesome festival. We had quite a riot at Bloodstock that year, with some truly unforgettable moments courtesy of meeting bands and friends amid many alcoholic beverages. This was actually the last show for both Lauren and Nick, who left the band amicably not long after the show for commitments in the real world.

'Hell At My Back’ is a precursor to our forthcoming appearance at this year’s HRH Metal III. Lyrically, the protagonist of the song is constantly haunted by his past, hunted by the horrors he has confronted since time immemorial. …

BLOODYWOOD Releases Official Music Video for "Endurant"

New Delhi based Indian Folk Metal band BLOODYWOOD has released the official music video for their single, "Endurant." The viral metal trio first caught their US fans' attention with their metal rendition of the Indian folk song "Ari Ari," but has developed a sustained base of hard core followers with blistering original tracks fusing traditional Indian instrumentation with brutal guitars and mixed vocal stylings.

Check out the new video below:



"'Endurant' is a song for those who've faced or continue to face bullying in any aspect of life. We wanted to be as realistic and practical as possible with our message, which is why the song urges to endure and come out stronger rather than retaliate or fight back with force. The video, while maintaining the message of the song, also tries to establish that bullies are not another breed." - Karan Katiyar
