Bloodywood Releases Official Music Video For "Machi Bhasad (Expect a Riot)"; "Raj Against The Machine Tour" Dates Announced

New Delhi based Indian Folk Metal band BLOODYWOOD has released the official music video for their newest single, "Machi Bhasad (Expect a Riot)."




"Originally created for the upcoming Ubisoft game "Beyond Good and Evil 2", Machi Bhasad is a track with a political message that celebrates the power of a new generation and its potential to be better than the last. Outside the context of the game, this song is intended as both a tribute and a call to action. It's a tribute to musicians and leaders who inspired people like ourselves to think and act in a way that'll benefit everyone. To question an unjust system that serves a few at the cost of the many. It's a call to action for our generation to finish the work started by all those who came before us. To Become the straw that broke the proverbial camel's back, and change the world for the better."

Raj Against The Machine Tour Dates:
07/13 @ Dong Open Air - Neukirchen-Vluyn, Germany

Watch the new lyric video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ubhf4AAL5Hc



Chrigel Glanzmann comments:
"Here you go with our second lyric video for a song from our brand new album ATEGNATOS! It's the second part of the two-song cycle of THE SLUMBER and WORSHIP! A radical song with drastic lyrics on a severe topic: the ancient Celtic Sesroneos myth, in which our modern societies can and probably should reflect themselves as much as the people in ancient times could! We hope you enjoy it as much as we do and find some food for thought in it! Special thanks to Randy Blythe of LAMB OF GOD for an excellent performance!"

'Ategnatos' has entered the charts all over the world, including a #3 position in their home country, Switzerland and #11 in Germany.

JINJER Release New Music Video & Announce European Tour Dates

Filmed in various concert venues throughout Europe on their last tour with Amorphis and Soilwork,“Teacher, Teacher!” is a visually stunning portrayal of JINJER's exciting and energetic live show mixed over the unique Progressive Groove Metal sound that sets them apart from the rest of the pack.

JINJER are currently booking more tours on their quest for world domination with dates already an…

CELLAR DARLING New Album 'The Spell' Out Now

The storytellers of CELLAR DARLING released their sophomore studio album 'The Spell' on the 22nd March 2019 and carry you away into the tale of an unnamed girl who is birthed into a world that is full of pain, damaged and debilitated by the human beings that inhabit it. We follow her as she searches for meaning in life when suddenly she meets and falls in love with death. This haunting concept album sees the band taking a turn towards heavy progressive rock while still not neglecting their folk roots.

The band states: "Today we release 'The Spell' - a concept album based on the old motif of "Death and the Maiden", but with our own unique story of a girl who falls in love with the personification of Death. For the first time we wrote music according to a lyrical concept, we let the words of the story guide our melodies and rhythms and fully immersed ourselves in this fictional world. Now we invite you to do the same - dream, interpret, make it your own.

Spreading The Disease - Voices (Single Review)

'Voices' starts on an effective soft clean vocal intro before the aggressive fierce vocals kick in and features varied vocals throughout keeping it dynamic. The guitar work is hard-hitting especially with ambient and heavy chugging riffs. The delivery and transitions it goes through aided by the vocals add to its frantic vibes which seem appropriate given the nature of the track. This is an intense and killer track which leaves you hungry for the upcoming EP 'Mindcell'.




'Voices' has just been released worldwide through Surgery Records, taken from our forthcoming new EP 'MINDCELL' which is out on April 11th 2019.

On March 22nd, Switzerland's CELLAR DARLING will release their new concept masterpiece 'The Spell', which tells the story of a girl who falls in love with death and to get their loyal fans involved, the band had decided to let their online followers cast votes on which song from the tracklist they would like to see released as next single. The winner was the 7-minute long 'Drown' and today, you'll get to see the hauntingly beautiful music video that was once again animated by Costin Chioreanu.

"For this single, we wanted to do something different", the band states. "And we felt that our striking one-word tracklist is perfect for a fan vote. To let people decide which song they want to hear next based on only the title and length of the song, and to take us out of the decision process for once. To our surprise -- and joy -- the song that is probably the least "commercial" of all of them was chosen and we think that is kind of cool… we are…

ELUVEITIE Release First Album Trailer

We all wade through archetypes. We all ARE archetypes. Distant echoes of a life both primeval and noble. To embrace these archetypes, to accept them not only as a part of life but as life itself is what some may call enlightenment, some peace of mind. ELUVEITIE call it 'Ategnatos'. And by using their longest ever gap between albums to gather momentum, they just forged their strongest album around it. 'Ategnatos' will be released on April 5th 2019 via Nuclear Blast.

The band presents the first album trailer on YouTube. Check it and find out more about the concept and the lyrics of the upcoming album: https://youtu.be/JcoOZjwss0c
