Killin' Candace Release New Single "STRAIGHT FROM THE UNDERGROUND"

Hollywood's hard rock n roll heroes Killin' Candace have released a brand new single and lyric video which is the title track to their upcoming album STRAIGHT FROM THE UNDERGROUND. "I'm super excited to drop this one as I feel it's some of my best work to date," says Killin' Candace vocalist Aaron Lee. "It also feels like a chaotic time in the world right now, there's a natural sense of tension and division (whether it's political, moral, religious etc) and Straight from the Underground aims to send a message of opening your eyes, looking internally, and realizing that sometimes the enemy is a lot closer to home!"

Check out the lyric video below!





"I had the pleasure of working with Aaron on creating the lyric video for the song Straight from the Underground. It has an amazing personality to it! This new sound that Killin' Candace are producing is hot and could take them a long way!" -Randy Mathias (Stitched Up Heart)

The wait for new music is over. POLARIS have shared their new single and video for 'Masochist.' https://youtu.be/jmU2HH0LHmY




"We worked with Ed Reiss on this clip, who's worked on some of our favourite clips from other Australian bands, and together we developed this concept of a painter who, forever dissatisfied with his work, finds he gets more enjoyment from destroying his own creations than from making them," says drummer Daniel Furnari.

He adds, "We asked our friend Zac Britt (DREAM ON, DREAMER, YOUNG LIONS) to star in the clip. Not only is he a talented actor and someone that we knew would understand and embody the character, but. he is also a painter himself. Zac actually contributed…

Angel Witch launches video for "Death from Andromeda"

In the wake of their brand new album, Angel Of Light - already being described by some as the band's finest work since the legendary debut - Angel Witch are proud to present their first bona fide music video since their eponymous single nearly forty years ago: the incendiary and extraterrestrial-themed "Death From Andromeda". To watch the video, please visit: https://youtu.be/3QyRhJ9ibYY



The handiwork of the Brighton-based production team Wild Stag Studio, this six minute piece forms a homage of sorts to the sci-fi and horror dreamworlds that have haunted the collective subconscious and fired the imagination of the band since its earliest incarnation.

Even before the day in 1979 when Kevin Heybourne used the recently viewed Alien as inspiration for the hellish guitar noise that kicks off "Baphomet", the mystical aural landscapes that Angel Witch creates had always been heavily informed by futuristic dystopias, dark mythos and the kind of culture oft found in …

Vocalist Frankie Palmeri bluntly comments on the release of the new song, “Hindsight is 2020.”

Summoning the most brutal barebones, punishing metallic hardcore with some of the catchiest nu-metal inspired Active Rock rhythm around, EMMURE makes their awaited return with no feigned sophistication, no phoned-in sloganeering, and no calculated drama.
