Iranian metal band Out of Nowhere drops “Blind Crow” video

  I ranian djent/metalcore crew Out of Nowhere has dropped the video for their recently released single, “Blind Crow.” Knotfest debuted the video alongside an intriguing interview with the Mashad band (read full article AT THIS LOCATION ). The oppressive regime of the Islamic Republic of Iran made heavy music illegal inside the country, and metal bands often get arrested for their endeavor. However, regardless of the risk of being imprisoned, Out of Nowhere has actively been releasing music and playing live shows across the country for more than a decade. “We started 15 years ago in one of the most religious cities in Iran. Despite everyone saying you can’t make it, we didn’t give up on our dreams, so we made the pact that we will make them our goal to make sure we’ll all see a day that our message has been spread around the world. No matter what, no matter how many sticks and stones will get thrown at us,” Out of Nowhere sheds light on their struggle on Knotfest. “We tried to descri

Finnish Alternative Rockers Luna Kills Release New single ‘’liar, liar’’

  Alternative rock band Luna Kills offers you another bittersweet anthem. Finnish band’s second full-length album ‘’not to be bitter, but it helps’’ will be released 11th of June. Last month we got some taste from the album in the form of the first single ‘’bITTER sONGS COME EASY’’ which was received very well by radio stations and listeners around the world. Now we crank it up with the second single ‘’liar, liar’’, which was already in the demo process an earworm. ‘’In the early pre-production phase, ‘’liar, liar’’ became an absolute favourite of everyone in the band and there were no questions asked whether it was among one of the single releases. Simply put, it’s a banger!’’ - the band describes this bass-driven song. “liar, liar” is a natural continuation for the first release: where the first single reflects one's own emotions of bitterness, “liar, liar” leads up to release that built up in anger. ‘’Whatever inspirational quotes you see put on pictures of flowers or how some

Modern Mimes returns with single & video "Seek & Hide"

  Everything is energy, a cycle. The cycle repeats until you get it right and then a new one begins. A perpetual spiral of you. As we embark on releasing our 3rd body of work, Portals, on my (Adi’s) 33rd year of life on this earth, we have expanded as a band. We welcome our 3rd member, Justin Perez on the drums. The message is the same, told with new wisdom and perspective, maturation and acceptance. There was a franticness in our previous work, an urgency to forewarn of a future not yet understood. Now we all find ourselves in a state of no security for the whole world but instead of approaching it in the old patterns of franticness, there is an unshaken stillness. We aren’t saints. We aren’t prophets. We are simply emphatic people with an ear to the whispers of the future. When the waves of messages come, we put it into songs and let the spirits guide us. We stand for strength, grounding, magic, becoming, expansion; opening the doors to your own portals. We are Modern Mimes. Check ou

  Montreal, QC’s Sanguine Glacialis have a new music video for the track “Kraken” in support of their 2018 album “Hadopelagic”.

The video premiered on Bravewords. You can watch the video below: Sanguine Glacialis explains the song in their own words: “This is the third and last single from our album “Hadopelagic”. It’s actually the first song that was written when we finished the recording of our first album “Dancing with a Hanged Man”, and because of that, you can clearly hear the influences of the first album and former line-up. It’s a song that we all liked, so we decided to keep it and adapt it to our new line-up. The lyrics talk about a man who goes to sea, knowing well that a monster awaits him, and despite the warnings of the people around him, unfortunately never comes back. The music video is centered on t

  Tempt have released a cover of the brand new Foo Fighters’ song “Holding Poison”. The track was produced by Grammy Award winner, Chris Lord-Alge and the band’s guitarist Harrison Marcello and mixed by Chris Lord-Alge at Mix LA. “Because of the pandemic, the release of our debut album on Better Noise Music has been delayed a year and this was a way to get some new music out to our fans”, explained lead singer Zach Allen. “When we heard the new Foo Fighters album, it just got us excited to rock out and have fun again. We had a bit of that ‘I wish we had written that’ feeling when we heard this song and a rehearsal jam session on it organically became a recording and video. When we played a phone recording for Chris he said ‘let’s do it’.” “This new Foo’s album is right in our wheelhouse. It’s big guitars, big hooks and just a fun record” said Marcello. “Often people look to do covers of older classic songs but we were inspired by this new record. We took a bit of a cue from Jimi Hendri

It will be released in the spring ravaged by the corona on April 15, 2021. Where our previous album dealt more objectively with the state of the whole nation and the prevailing world situation, the theme of our new album is clearly more personal. The song to be published tells the story of how one is forced to first touch the bottom to be able to strive towards the surface. A kind of power song, if you will."

Skyliner Release New Video "I Walk Alone"

  Hailing from Jacksonville, Florida , SKYLINER is a wave of discontent and a voyage to freedom, with a progressive mind's eye at the center of the storm. Lyrically esoteric, insightful, or emotionally shipwrecked, a tide of vocal wails and roars collides with pure toned, high-volume guitars, bass, and drums, an alchemical marriage recalling the classic era of heavy and power metal while adding new stones onto that eternal foundation. “Dark Rivers, White Thunder” also sees the band exploring some more earthy, tribal themes and underpinnings, both lyrically and musically, helping to define the feel and atmosphere of the record. Fans of Devin Townsend , Royal Hunt , and Eternal Champion are going to love Skyliner ! Their new album, Dark Rivers, White Thunder, has progressive musicianship mixed with elements of traditional heavy metal. Skyliner has several ranges of vocal styles, starting with epic Iron Maiden -esque wailing, screaming that is reminiscent of Judas Priest , and siniste
