Ded Release Horror Themed Video For "Hate Me"

Ded have released a new horror-themed video for 3rd single "Hate Me". To celebrate the release, the single is now on sale everywhere for just .69 cents.

The clip finds the band playing inside a spooky looking house with a bit of a supernatural vibe going on as they deliver their energetic performance of the track.

Singer Joe Cotela says, “What's up world! We've just released the video for our new single "Hate Me"! This song is all about self-empowerment. It's about following your gut and being who you know you truly are, without being influenced by all of the bullshit around you. It’s about not succumbing to negative energy from negative people."

He continues, "There are people that do nothing with their lives, but talk shit about someone who is on their grind. You can hate my hustle all day - but you will not stop it. This isn't a song for boneheads that think it's cool to be an asshole. It's about doing something positive for yourself and going hard in your life in the face of adversity. I firmly believe that the power of the mind is infinite and with the right focus and determination, anything and everything is within your reach."

Cotela reveals the band shot the video with director Shan Dan Horan, who has previously worked with DevilDriver, Exodus, Buckcherry and more. In addition, fans can look for a guest turn from SiriusXM host Jose Mangin, who makes a cameo in the video. Cotela also credits Oliver Porter and Oddities by Oliver for their use of real human skulls and taxidermy items, which help give the clip that special extra creepy feel.

"It was rad to switch up directors for our third video to try something new. Filming the whole thing with new and longtime friends in our home state of Arizona was killer," says the vocalist. "We hope you guys enjoy this bad boy.”

Check out the video for 'Hate Me' below:

2017 was a break-out year for Tempe, Arizona based Ded. In addition to the honor from Octane – which also placed first single "Anti-Everything" in their Top 10 for the year – Ded's debut album "Mis-An-thrope" bowed at #1 on the Billboard Alternative New Artists album chart and was named one of the Top albums of the year by Loudwire - who also nominated Ded for Best New Artist. They made an appearance at the Alternative Press Awards and received accolades from Amazon Music, Google Play Music, Metal Nation, and more. 2nd single "Remember The Enemy" also charted Top 20 @ Active Rock radio. The band played more than 100 dates including every major US Rock festival during 2017 and toured with Korn, Stone Sour, and Pop Evil, among others.

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…
