Montreal's JUNKOWL Create Harsh and Guttural Cover Video of Amy Winehouse's "Back To Black"

  Just because you're a hardcore band doesn't mean you can't indulge in music outside your genre's realm. As collective fans of Amy Winehouse, Montreal's JUNKOWL are paying homage to the artist with a heavy, harsh, and guttural cover music video for her song "Back To Black". Vocalist Jesse Frechette explains further on the band's choice to cover an Amy Winehouse song. "When we decided to record a cover song, we knew we wanted to go with one that wasn’t metal to begin with and really make it our own. We chose Amy Winehouse because her lyrical content is very dark and I’ve always admired her honest and extremely personal writing style. My mom is a really big fan, so growing up, I got to hear her a lot around the house and in the car, etc. And as soon as I started figuring out the lyrics, I was sucked in. She helped me discover that a song doesn’t necessarily have to be brutal musically to be heavy. It’s all about how it makes you feel and, in that r

SOULLINE present new single AGAINST MYSELF

  Soulline present today the official video for Against Myself, second single taken from their new album, Screaming Eyes, out on March 11th, 2022 via Massacre Records. Marco, guitarist of the band, declares: "With Against Myself, the story of our common hero continues, and after a period of discouragement, he gets up again. The desire for revenge is very strong, but it is also very easy to fall back into the abyss. It only takes a second to erase all efforts. The song is a dark and powerful reflection on the eternal struggle between angel and demon: "do I give up or do I fight back?". The lyrics of Against Myself have a very intimate nature and for this reason the band has chosen to rely once again on Dalilù for the video of the song. The director is in fact brilliant in capturing human expressions and emotions and, also in this video, showing the band playing in a very cozy environment dear to them, she managed to convey the meaning of the song to the viewer.
