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”.

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.

INTERVIEW: Cellar Darling (Switzerland)

INTERVIEW: Cellar Darling (Switzerland)


Cellar Darling is comprised of Anna Murphy, Ivo Henzi, and Merlin Sutter who recently formed following the spilt from previous well-known folk metal band, Eluveitie. The trio have been hard at work since, creating their anticipated debut album 'This Is The Sound' which was released June 30th via Nuclear Blast Records and have impressed fans and press alike with their fresh and unique sound which has been dubbed as "the new wave of folk rock“. This is an exciting and busy time for the band, so I caught up with them to find out about their origins, their new album, touring and what is in store for the band amongst other things..

Can you tell us about the formation of Cellar Darling following leaving your previous band Eluveitie and how the band came to be?
Merlin: What I remember most clearly is how quick it went. As you might know, the whole thing with Eluveitie came very unexpected for us - we were informed of a decision by the remain…

REVIEW: Bobaflex - Eloquent Demons

Hard Rockers Bobaflex from West Virginian are back to wreak havoc with their eighth album ‘Eloquent Demons’ which is the follow to 2015’s ‘Anything That Moves’, this sees not only their first release through Thermal Entertainment but their first actual label release in a while after the band decided to go independent. They are a very hardworking and tireless band, having extensively toured, and even setting records for this, they certainly don’t do anything by half measures.
The opening intro and title track sounds very appropriately evil, with a creepy intro speech to set the scene whilst we wait for the demons to be fully unleashed…
First proper track ‘I Am Nightmare’ immediately sees heavy dark guitars and melodic group singing, which give it a classic feel with a gritty edge and is possesses a hell of a powerful chorus, not to mention a killer solo – this will be hard to forget.
Keeping the momentum going is ‘Long Time Coming’ which is equally as hard-hitting, with groove ridden and…

INTERVIEW: Mutation (with Ginger Wildheart & Scott Lee Andrews)

Interview with Ginger Wildheart & Scott Lee Andrews of Mutation 


Mutation are an extreme metal act from the UK formed in 2013 by well-known vocalist/guitarist Ginger Wildheart, the man behind the rock group The Wildhearts and the frontman of Exit International, Scott Lee Andrews. The trio is completed by drummer known as Denzel (Dean Pearson) who has been involved in many projects with Ginger and plays in Young Legionnaire. I caught up with Ginger and Scott to discuss the beginnings of Mutation, the new album '‘Mutation III: Dark Black’, touring, the future, mental health and much more in this interesting and honest interview.



As a musician who has played in many bands, most notably The Wildhearts and formed many projects, how did you come to form Mutation and why when you did?

Ginger: I did it mainly because I wanted to make the music that was in my head, and it didn’t look like anyone else wanted to do it.

At the time I was playing and writing with Michael Monroe, and while I l…
