Witch Casket Releases Music Video For “The True Knot”


In anticipation of the release of their debut EP entitled “Hatred Index”, Southern California Blackened Death Metal outfit Witch Casket have announced the release of the music video for “The True Knot”, one of the tracks from their upcoming album due out April 27th.  The video was filmed in Los Angeles and directed by the band’s vocalist “Drogoth”.
 
Watch the video HERE.
 
Drogoth had this to say about the video:
“Since our first music video was mainly a “performance” video, I wanted to do something more cinematic and story driven. The video finds the band members fleeing the city, being pursued by an unseen adversary, or perhaps being drawn to the outskirts by the call of a coven of powerful witches.  The band is taken on a journey that serves as a sort of “origin story”, following them through a transformation from crestfallen reprobates to a stronger, more unified force. The video was shot on location in Downtown Los Angeles, as well as along the Angeles Crest Highway in the San Gabriel mountains.”
 
“The True Knot” will be the third video released by the band, following the release of a lyric video for the song “That Damn Devil”, and the music video for the album’s title track “Hatred Index”, both of which are available on the band’s YouTube channel HERE.
 
 
The full cast and crew credits for the video are as follows:

THE WORD ALIVE ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM VIOLENT NOISE AND STREAM NEW SINGLE

US metalcore band THE WORD ALIVE have announced the release of new album Violent Noise on 4 May via Fearless Records and unveiled new single ‘Red Clouds’. The album is available to pre-order and can check out ‘Red Clouds’ here: http://smarturl.it/violentnoise 

‘Red Clouds’ is the first single off Violent Noise and tells the story of how The Word Alive came to be,” explains vocalist Telle Smith. “Before we knew each other, every step we took into life’s unknown led us to each other and to creating the songs we’ve played across the world to our incredible fans for the last nine years. We’ve endured every challenge a band can face, and have continued to rededicate ourselves to each other as friends throughout. The same passion that ignited this band remains today. We’re more than individuals because The Word Alive could never be a single person or a single song. We’re a family that includes every single one of you. So as we begin this new chapter together, and we let you into our lives and minds more than ever we hope you’re ready to overcome your own challenges and fears to chase your dreams with us. It begins…

The band’s fifth record Violent Noise is yet another step in the evolution of the highly impressive group, who reached as high as #31 on the Billboard Top 200 with previous release Dark Matter.

Now a trio – Tyler “Telle” Smith [vocals], Zack Hansen [guitars], Tony Pizzuti [guitars] – Violent Noise represents the culmination of a decade of a band and an unbreakable bond. In many ways, THE WORD ALIVE set the stage for the next progression on Violent Noise with Dark Matter. They’ve re-teamed with the producer behind their last offering,Matt Good [Asking Alexandria, From First To Last], and followed a similar spirit unafraid to experiment.

Since 2008, The Word Alive have steadily maintained a course towards the forefront of alternative music and continue the upward trajectory with their fifth studio album Violent Noise. The Phoenix-based trio-Telle Smith [vocals], Zack Hansen [guitars], Tony Pizzuti [guitars]-tosses and turns between visceral metallic power and entrancing emotionality encased in swathes of otherworldly electronics. It’s a singular sound that has naturally evolved since Deceiver [2010] and through Life Cycles [2012], Real. [2014], and Dark Matter [2016]. 

They’ve earned acclaim from the likes of Alternative PressRevolverGuitar World, and Modern Drummer, have supported I Prevail, Killswitch Engage, A Day To Remember, Asking Alexandria, Motionless In White, and Parkway Drive, among others, and are known for their ability to ignite crowds across the globe. 2018’s Violent Noise represents the culmination of a decade and the unbreakable bond shared by Telle, Zack, and Tony. 

They re-teamed with the producer behind their last offering Matt Good [Asking Alexandria, From First To Last] and followed a spirit unafraid to experiment. By holding nothing back, The Word Alive’s connection rings out louder than ever before on Violent Noise. “The most distracting noise in life is the one that comes from your head,” Telle explains. “We all battle with self-doubt, insecurities, and trust. This record is about the balance. There’s light and dark. Nevertheless, you always have control. I want to show everybody that. I’m proof.”

Their second strike is entitled ‘Transcience’ and will be out on June 29th! On this album the band perfected their game and brought it to a whole new level!

MIDNATTSOL Release Video For “Herr Mannelig”

New Album The Aftermath Available May 25th via Napalm Records



The name “Espenæs” rightfully makes a lot of people swoon: Liv Kristine and her sister Carmen Elise were a vital part of a magnitude of gothic / symphonic / folk metal milestones – but so far a super group involving both sisters sharing microphone duties was only the stuff only dreams were made of. December 14, 2017 gave fans the ultimate pre-Christmas surprise – Midnattsol added a second vocalist, Liv Kristine.
Their fourth album The Aftermath profits massively from the addition of another voice; the fragile track ‘Vem can segla’ oozes pure magic and depth, whereas the rendition of the traditional Swedish ballad ‘Herr Mannelig’ revels in somber glory and folkloristic air. Especially in comparison to its predecessor The Metamorphosis Melody (2011), The Aftermath relies much more heavily on folk influences lending atmospheric density to the melancholic symphonic metal compositions. A sumptuous and sensual affair and a shimmering highlight in the discography of this German / Norwegian team!
The Aftermath will be released May 25th and is available for pre-order HERE.

Today the band presents their video for the song “Herr Mannelig”.  Watch the exclusive premiere courtesy of Bravewords HERE.
MIDNATTSOL states:
Hi Folks,
 
Today we have something very special for you: The whole song of “Herr Mannelig” from our new album “The Aftermath” Including insights into our songwriting- and recording process.
 
Enjoy watching and horns up \m/
 
Yours,
Midnattsol

BURN THE PRIEST Celebrates 20th Anniversary with Release of New Covers Album, “Legion: XX”

LAMB OF GOD Return to their Roots on a 10-Track BURN THE PRIEST Album Featuring Covers of Classics by Cro-Mags, Bad Brains, Big Black, Ministry, Melvins, Quicksand and More
 
Legion: XX – In Stores May 18, 2018 via Epic Records
 
Watch the Official Music Video for “Inherit The Earth” & Pre-Order Merch Bundles Available via http://Burn-The-Priest.com
 
Stream “Inherit The Earth” HERE
 
Legion: XX Album Art
RIAA-certified, Billboard chart-topping, five-time Grammy nominated Richmond, VA band LAMB OF GOD may be one of the biggest bands in modern metal, but they will never forget where they came from. Mark Morton (guitar), John Campbell (bass), and Chris Adler (drums) formed the first incarnation of the band, BURN THE PRIEST, in the winter of 1994 after meeting four years earlier as students at Virginia Commonwealth University. Less than a year later, in the summer of 1995, they met vocalist Randy Blythe before adding Chris Adler’s brother, Willie Adler (guitar), prior to transitioning to LAMB OF GOD – and the rest is global metal history.
Guitarist Mark Morton says, “To truly understand the essence of the band BURN THE PRIEST, one must first consider the landscape in which it began: the mid-90s. Grunge and alternative music ruled the airwaves. Social media and the internet had yet to assume their role as our collective sources for entertainment and cultural exchange. It was a time when DIY ‘zines turned us onto new bands and regional scenes, and ‘copy and paste’ still implied a print shop and a glue stick.”
BURN THE PRIEST‘s self-titled debut album, released via Philadelphia-based Legion Records, documented what was, in essence, a primal punk band performing metal. Ultimately, as they grew in local popularity, the five-piece chose to stray away from their name to avoid being associated with satanic metal, choosing the name LAMB OF GOD.
Morton continues, “As our sound and songs developed, so did our goals… we began playing basement parties and warehouse shows and in doing so, we realized that the energy we were creating was transferable. The shows we played in those squats and warehouses [in Philadelphia] and the people we met there are forever embedded in our collective consciousness and the DNA of our band.”
As they enter their 20th year since releasing their first self-titled album as BURN THE PRIEST, the band will release a full-length covers album that reflects on the greatness of classic punk, hardcore, crossover and noise – rock subgenres that contributed to what LAMB OF GOD – and indeed, the world – now view as modern heavy metal.
As BURN THE PRIEST, the band presents Legion: XX – featuring tracks originally performed by Cro-Mags, Agnostic Front, Quicksand, Ministry, Bad Brains, Melvins, S.O.D., The Accused, Big Black and Richmond punk band Sliang Laos. The tracks are performed with the unmistakable precision that has kept the band vital for two decades, but ultimately harks back to the raw, punk-driven sound first explored by four unsuspecting college students and a line cook-turned-vocalist in their formative years. Produced with Josh Wilbur at the helm, Legion: XX exhibits BURN THE PRIEST in their true element.
“Our inauspicious beginnings somehow grew into something none of us had ever even imagined possible, let alone aspired to, however, this is the story of BURN THE PRIEST,” adds Morton. “The songs we chose to cover on this album reflect that story. They are touchstones from that point in time. The inspiration we gleaned from these bands and these songs carries through our work and our creative pursuits, even to this day. Many thanks to these bands for lighting our fire and endless gratitude to our fans around the world for keeping it lit.”
 
Legion: XX will be officially released on May 18, 2018 via Epic Records and will be available for purchase via all physical and digital retailers. Pre-orders and merch bundles are available now via http://Burn-The-Priest.com and fans can stream the first single “Inherit The Earth” here: http://BTP.lnk.to/LegionXX. On street date, a 7″ vinyl version of “Inherit the Earth” featuring a B-side of “In the Meantime” (originally performed by Helmet), will also be available.
Today, fans can watch the brand new BURN THE PRIEST music video for “Inherit The Earth”, originally performed by The Accused, and cut from Legion: XX (video directed by Travis Shinn). Watch here: http://Burn-The-Priest.com
“I’ve been an Accused fan since I was 14 when they were on the “Thrasher Skate Rock Volume 3” compilation with C.O.C. and all these amazing crossover bands,” says frontman Randy Blythe. “Their singer Blaine Cook was a huge influence on me, vocally.”
 
Drummer Chris Adler recalls,“‘Inherit The Earth’ hit me in the face soon after I managed to get my grubby mitts on the album sometime around ’88. I got the Accused record at a “Yellow Banana” record store on Route 1 south of DC while in route back from my “counselor” to my home in Woodbridge, Virginia. I got home and grabbed my board and I rocked it on my Discman. At about 2:12 into the tune the clouds parted above me and on a loudspeaker, God bellowed down to me, ‘RECEIVE YOUR PURPOSE.’ That was the moment I knew that if I tried hard enough, I could convey myself and how I felt – with music. It will never be “ours,” and we know that about all the tunes we’ve covered, but hopefully one of them hit you in the face as I had been, and God will part the clouds for you, too.”
 
Legion: XX track listing:
1. Inherit The Earth (originally performed by The Accused)
2. Honey Bucket (originally performed by Melvins)
3. Kerosene (originally performed by Big Black)
4. Kill Yourself (originally performed by S.O.D.)
5. I Against I (originally performed by Bad Brains)
6. Axis Rot (originally performed by Sliang Laos)
7. Jesus Built My Hotrod (originally performed by Ministry)
8. One Voice (originally performed by Agnostic Front)
9. Dine Alone (originally performed by Quicksand)
10. We Gotta Know (originally performed by Cro-Mags)
 
Blythe adds,“I have a radio show on Gimme Radio, and [the station] is all metal shows except for mine. I do the punk rock show because I want to show the direct correlation between my band, and the punk scene going back to The MC5 and The Stooges. There is a direct link – look at old pictures of Metallica, Slayer and Anthrax, and they’re wearing Misfits, D.R.I., and C.O.C. t-shirts. They fused the technicality of metal with the intensity of punk rock. Before them, metal was like in slow motion. Speed metal bands were listening to Discharge. I beat that drum all the time when I talk to kids.”
 
Legion: XX is a sonic tribute to metal’s dark, dirty secret – the punk inspiration of all future heavy music to come.

For the first time ever, Decibel has documented the origins of BURN THE PRIEST through interviews with original members and scene staples of the 1990s who unwittingly helped change the face of extreme metal forever.
