Festival Preview: Mammothfest UK - Upcoming Acts To Watch!






Mammothfest is just two and a half weeks away now! The Brighton festival is back yet again, but this year it is all happening at their new home under one roof at The Arch venue, located on the seafront which boasts two stages for the three-day mental weekend that is taking place on the 6-8th October. 
The line-up is immense and impressively features all three headliners as UK exclusives with Rotting Christ, Fleshgod Apocalypse, and Amenra as well as a UK exclusive set from Norwegian Black metallers Tsjuder. Other heavyweight acts on the bill include Dragged Into Sunlight, Akercoke, Vodun, Lawnmower Deth, Meta-stasis and more, which surely are all bands you will want to be checking out, but to help you plan your itinerary for the festival weekend further, here is a list of a few upcoming bands that you should be checking out at the festival also!



Bleed Again

Modern metallers Bleed Again are local fan favourites at Mammothfest and never disappoint with their energetic striking sets and melodic metal. This year's festival marks their first appearance on the main stage, and quite rightly as they always get the crowd pumped and singing along to their anthemic metal offerings. In the past they have supported well-known acts such as Darkest Hour, Soil and Devil Sold His Soul. In May this year, they unleashed their anticipated debut album, 'Momentum' which got the attention of Metal Hammer UK and dubbed them as a 'hot new band' to watch out for. Their debut is impressive and has a massive professional sound, aided by the mixing and mastering done by Acle Kahney of Tesseract. The band keeps rising so make sure to check them out on the main stage Saturday and see what all the fuss is about!



Abhorrent decimation



This London act are sure to deliver a crushing set with their power death metal, as they have done previously at Mammothfest in 2014 and 2015 as well at Bloodstock so their return to Mammothfest will be a triumphant one! Ever since their formation in 2013 they keep getting bigger, and in 2016 they signed with Prosthetic Records and they unleashed their new album in July this year ‘The Pardoner’ which they will no doubt be destroying our ears with during their Mammothfest set on the main stage Saturday.




Synaptik 



British heavy metal five-piece, Synaptik from Norwich, UK offer something a bit different to a lot of the other acts who mainly range from extreme, death metal, and stoner, as they offer up a unique progressive metal sound which is mighty and hard-hitting. Earlier this year they released their anticipated sophomore album ‘Justify & Reason’ which was well received by fans and critics alike, so make sure you check them out on the Rikstock stage on Sunday to hear some of their brilliant new offerings.



Hole In The Sky

Local Brighton fan favourites Hole In The Sky, again are no strangers to Mammothfest, as they played in 2014 alongside headliners Savage Messiah, Martyr Defiled, Ingested and more. They are an unstoppable tech-death act that continues to grow despite tragically losing their singer Rik (the Mammothfest RIKSTOCK STAGE is named after Rik) to Brain cancer a few years ago. Their return will be highly anticipated and welcomed, with 2017 looking to be a strong year for them!



Death Remains

Death remains from London, UK have built quite a reputation for their energetic and relentless shows and their appearance at the ‘Mammothfest presents’ show with headliners Brutality Will Prevail earlier this year certainly lived up to this hype, as they soared with their melodic sound and dominating presence. They released their second album ‘Destroy/Rebuild’ this year which has been widely praised and cements them as a band to watch, so come and witness some of their brilliant new songs on the main stage on Saturday, playing just after their friends and past tourmates Bleed Again.




Seething Akira

Electronic dub rock heroes Seething Akira know how to bring the party, with their heavy rave vibes. They headlined the Rikstock stage in 2015 and ended it on a massive and unforgettable high, as well as most recently playing at the ‘Mammothfest presents’ show at the beginning of the year with headliners Feed The Rhino, again putting on an explosive performance which took the crowd energy and participation to a new level, especially with frontman Kit Cuntrad throwing himself into the pit and triumphantly crowd surfing. They were so good they nearly stole the show...literally everyone in the room was under their command, jumping, moshing and bouncing throughout their entire set. You need to see this band...to do this you will need to go to the special VIP after party on Saturday, believe me, it is worth it!



Core Of iO

Photo by Luke Bateman at Mammothfest


Bringing some technical progressive grooves and adding to the variety of the festival line-up is local Brighton tech masters, Core Of iO who have the pleasure of headlining the Rikstock stage on Sunday. This is well deserved, especially following their past appearances at the festival, as well as appearing at Tech-Fest UK, they always go down a storm as they impress with their melodic and skillful sounds. Luckily for us, they have a new EP coming out December 1st called EP Part II: Europa, so hopefully, they will be airing some of this at their headline slot.


Confronted

Photo by Luke Bateman at 'Mammothfest presents' Brutality Will Prevail


Confronted from the South Coast UK are seriously a band you need to witness live. You will be shocked, amused and frightened throughout the entirety of their set, as frontman Ryan Hull is known for his unusual and mental antics on stage, such as shouting in people's faces, smashing up drums and standing or climbing up anything he can which makes for an unforgettable experience. It does also help that their music is also brilliant and heavy as hell, so you get the whole package! They have to be seen to be believed, so head down to the Rikstock stage on Sunday and last day of the festival.



So there you go, there are just a few of my selections, but honestly, Mammothfest promotes and showcases so many great local and upcoming acts, so they are all worth supporting and seeing, and that along with the fact that they have such a strong line-up this year with 3 UK exclusive headliners just shows how far they have come and how important the festival is for the South Coast metal scene. It is very exciting to watch the festival continue to grow and expand. So 
gear up and get ready for the carnage that is soon to descend onto Brighton the weekend of 6-8th October!

BARE TEETH Release New Music Video For single ‘Behind The Wall’





French Punk Rockers BARE TEETH Release New Music Video For ‘Behind The Wall’


Bare Teeth is a Punk Rock band from Lille, France, composed of Greg (guitar – vocals), Titouan (guitar – backing vocals), Jérôme (drums) and Tom (bass – backing vocals). After a demo sold more than 250 copies, the band has released its new EP 'First the Town, Then the World' on May 19th 2017. The EP is now available on Digipack CDs, 12" vinyl and in all digital formats. 


Bare Teeth have just released, on September 15th 2017, a brand new music video for single 'Behind the Wall', taken from their latest EP. Check out the new video below!




Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wcIRviP3fCA



The band discussed their latest video such as where it was filmed:

"We made it pretty simple for this one. It used to be Romain Pouly’s place, where we recorded the vocal and bass parts, until he moved out and Titouan, our guitar player, moved in… so basically, it’s Tit’s place."


Who filmed and directed the music video: "We made this video with Ginie Van Roy, who is a friend of mine and already has a small experience with shooting bands. She is not much into punk/rock or skatepunk, but it was pretty straightforward to work with her. In fact, it’s the first video we filmed for "First the Town, Then the World", months before the "Parted Ways" video."

And finally the meaning behind the actual song:

"I wrote this song a long time ago, while I was touring with Fast Motion, my former band. I had the opportunity to tour several times in Central and Eastern Europe, and although these countries are way poorer than France, people there were always ready to provide us a place to sleep, give us some food and drinks and make sure we had a little money after each show. The "wall" is both a reference to the Berlin wall and the Iron curtain. People from these countries lived a very different youth than ours, but we’ve also reunited through music. That’s incredible!"

Klogr Release Lord Of The Flies Inspired Video Ahead Of New Album & Tour With The Rasmus







Klogr Release Lord Of The Flies Inspired Video Ahead Of New Album & Tour With The Rasmus



The alternative rock/metal band, KLOGR, have released a music video for their brand new single 'Sleeping Through The Seasons'.

The song, as well as the other tracks from the forthcoming new album 'Keystone', was recorded at Zeta Factory Studio and mixed at Mainstation Studio in Toronto, Canada, by Grammy winning producer David Bottrill who has previously worked with Dream Theater, Stone Sour, Tool, Rush, and more.

Watch 'Sleeping Through The Seasons' (official music video): https://youtu.be/aOjFLDrDqtE





The video was inspired by the novel (and movie) 'Lord Of The Flies' (as written by Nobel prize-winning author William Golding) which focuses on a group of British boys stranded on an uninhabited island and their disastrous attempt to govern themselves. The storyboard for Klogr's new music video was created by Andrea Saltini (the author of 'Keystone's' artwork) and Chiara Silvestri (art director). 'Sleeping Through the Seasons' video shoot was handled by Roberto Zampa (director of Klogr videos for 'King of Unknown', 'Breaking Down', 'Breathing Heart') and Matteo Pasquali (director of Klogr videos 'Bleeding' and 'Draw Closer') who took care of the direction and editing.

Klogr guitarist / frontman Rusty says,“When I talked to Andrea Saltini about the concept of the album, he shared with me his interpretation inspired by the novel/movie 'Lord Of The Flies'. I really loved his idea because it seems a wide way to see the album as a whole in one music video . It is always exciting to meet other artists’ (painters, designers, art directors, and writers) point of views so they can give you other interpretations of your work.”

'Sleeping Through the Seasons' is taken from Klogr's forthcoming studio album ,'Keystone', which will be released on 6th October via Zeta Factory / PHD. It's the second single to be taken from the new album following lead song 'Prison Of Light': https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iyj3cq0JrAs

Pre-orders are now available in two exclusive bundles with limited edition t-shirt: http://www.klogr.net/shop/

Klogr are special guests to The Rasmus on their 'Dark Matters' European tour this November.

DIABLO BLVD Share Their Thoughts On Mass Media





DIABLO BLVD Discuss Views On Mass Media



Belgian dark rock outfit DIABLO BLVD have recently released a brand new video for 'Summer Has Gone', taken from the highly awaited new album Zero Hour, which is scheduled for a September 22nd release.

The new album deals with subjects such as politics, religion and mass manipulation. Today the band share their thoughts on mass media: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NsT4iAPEY4M

Vocalist Alex Agnew comments: "The thing I probably blame the most in the age of fear we live now is the media because they seem to be the ones to feed on fear. It sells more newspapers and makes you watch more shows. There is more biased commentary on everything that happens. We have never been confronted more by the fact that governments and media are lying to us and it still seems to change nothing. A couple of years ago Edward Snowden exposed America's surveillance tactics to the entire world and the reaction of the world was surprising. In the sixties Watergate caused the fall of a president which almost triggered a revolution, while nowadays we heard something that was infinitely more worse, that takes away more privacy then George Orwell could ever have imagined in 1984 in his novel. It's unbelievable that the way we reacted to it was to kind of go: 'Well I don't have anything to hide so I'll just scroll on and look at a nice film of a little cat playing a piano.' It's amazing that everything we do is being watched by everybody else. I think that Orwell couldn't even have imagined when he talked about Big Brother that it wouldn't be a totalitarian system that's watching us through camera's but that it would be us ourselves that's doing it through our cell phones, through recording everything, through looking through that thing all the time and not seeing things with your own eyes anymore which is what the song 'God In The Machine' is all about. When you're on a stage you notice that everybody is watching you through this small screen, that they don't experience a moment anymore. Your memories are a lot more than just the things you see. It's what you feel at the time. I really love a sentence out of a movie called 'Lost Highway' by David Lynch: 'I don't like video tape because I like to remember things in my own way. Not necessarily the way they happened.' Don't let the truth get in the way of a good story. You can't replace the things that you feel and experience for yourself with badly shot images with horrible sound quality through a phone. We carry a phone in our pocket that is more powerful than the computer that put the first people on the moon and we use it to send a thumbs up or to tell people we don't like something. I think as a human race we need to evolve to something more than this and we need to stop believe disinformation and start thinking for ourselves..."

We decided to do this because we want to share our live experience with all our fans and also those fans who might have never had the chance to see us live. The live interpretation of our songs differs a lot from the studio record versions. We would call it a bit more rock ’n' roll, more heavy, more jam parts, more psychedelic parts – simply anotherexperience.. Playing live is what we've always enjoyed most. In no other situation can you connect as deep with your fans. We tried to catch the magical moments and emotions of the live atmosphere on DVD/ record for your living rooms, cars and wherever you will rock out to it. Paris was chosen because it means a lot to us to play in this beautiful city and also le Trianon is one of the most beautiful venues in Europe – this needed to get shared with you!“

CRADLE OF FILTH Release New Song 'Achingly Beautiful'






CRADLE OF FILTH Release New Lyric Video For 'Achingly Beautiful'


UK's legendary extreme metal icons CRADLE OF FILTH have released the official lyric video for the venomous new song 'Achingly Beautiful'. The song comes off the band's upcoming album Cryptoriana - The Seductiveness Of Decay.

Commented Dani Filth: "Influenced by the stories of E.F Benson, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, H.Rider Haggard, Oscar Wilde, Arthur Machen and Algernon Blackwood to shame but a few, this song concerns itself with a spectral guest at a great masked ball who, (deeply embedded in his cruel libertine nature, attends merely for merciless, seductive sport), but instead discovers the woman of his dreams and both bewitching the other, finds in her his dark, immortal equal.

I love this song as it has a very old skool CRADLE vibe for me, both lyrically and musically, and reeking hideously of the Vampiric, the dropdown section in the middle is pure 'A Gothic Romance’."

Bērziņš is the mastermind behind the new record’s artwork, photography and videography – best known for his defiant neo-symbolism raster graphics and oil paintings; postmodern interpretations of classic myths.

'This Is Goodbye' music video: https://youtu.be/4bP38kcnJW0
'Broken Love': https://youtu.be/oLaFNPIIYQs

This Is Goodbye, the new album from IMMINENCE, is a colossus made out of heavyweight ingredients mixed with wide-open, heart-throbbing themes. A modern approach that boldly integrates various elements from alternative/popular genres with wild emotions in sonic outbursts.

The album was primarily produced by Eddie and Harald themselves, the main composers of the band. However, Simon Peyron had a big influence and role in the process as the vocal producer.

Jakob Koc, a longtime friend and graphic designer of the band, was the right person to visualize the complexity and simplicity of the vast soundscape, creating an iconic and magnetic reflection of the music and lyrical theme of This Is Goodbye. It’s a vulnerable and fierce capture of frontman Eddie Berg's inner thoughts and processes.

Ded Release New Video For "Remember The Enemy" Directed By Fred Durst





Ded Release Eerie New Video For "Remember The Enemy"


Rising Rockers Ded are one of the year’s breakout acts and they're ready to further advance that notion with the premiere of their latest video for “Remember the Enemy”.





Video link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hua_-sf9Y8w



The Phoenix, AZ based group reunited with video director Fred Durst for this latest clip, which finds them performing against a lit up forested backdrop, while clear-eyed vocalist Joe Cotela also makes the most of a cage setting to set the tone for the clip. As for the song, it’s plenty of low end heaviness offset by electronic high-end keys, making for an engaging and hard driving rock track that’s guaranteed to stick in your head for days.

Speaking about the song, Cotela explains: “‘Remember the Enemy’ is a song about self-reflection. A couple years ago I started defeating myself with anxiety and depression. I was taking a lot of Xanax and medicating heavily with booze. It was at some point in there that I realized that I am in control of all of this. My brain and my thoughts only exist in ways that I allow them to. A great quote I came across summed it up: ‘The difference between who you are and who you want to be is what you do.'”


He continues, “I started going to cognitive therapy. I had to stop what I was doing, honestly look at myself and pick my ass up! I got mad at the anxiety/depression, I made it my ‘enemy.’ I had to beat the s–t out of it and stomp it out. I was in my own way, my own worst enemy. It hasn’t completely gone away, it still rears its ugly f–king face at times – but now I know what the f–ker looks like and how to deal with it.”

As for the Durst-directed clip, the singer states, “We shot the video for ‘Remember the Enemy’ in Griffith Park at the old abandoned Los Angeles Zoo, that was opened in 1912 and closed in 1965. That area has turned into a hidden park/hiking destination. It is an eerie setting and is supposed to be haunted by the animals that were once imprisoned there in such obsolete, harsh conditions. We really went for a dark, nightmarish horror movie vibe, and we think we achieved that. As a side note - the scene from the Will Ferrell Anchorman movie where they fall into the bear pit was also shot there. We hope fans enjoy RTE!”
"Remember The Enemy" is the follow up to "Anti-Everything" which reached the Top 20 @ Rock radio and who's Durst directed video has surpassed 1 million views on Youtube. RTE is off to a great start @ Active Rock Radio, and has quickly climbed to #27 and is rising. The song is also featured on popular Rock playlists at major streaming services: Spotify, Apple Music, Pandora, Amazon Music, Google Play Music and Slacker Radio, among others. If you like what you hear, it should be noted that Ded’s “Remember the Enemy” single is currently on sale for .69 at iTunes, Amazon, and Google Play. Fans may also want to take advantage of the fact that the Mis-An-Thrope album will also be released on vinyl this Friday (Sept. 15). You can pick that up through Amazon.
