Diamond Head to return to North American for the longest tour in their 40-year career.

Set to return to North American for the longest tour in their 40-year career, DIAMOND HEAD are expected to perform songs that span their extensive recording catalog, including selections from their self-titled new album.

Recorded at Vigo Studios in Birmingham ,  Diamond Head  is the first album toe feature new vocalist Rasmus Born Anderson and ends an eight-year silence for the New Wave of British Heavy Metal (NWOBHM) legends.  Prior to 2014, the thought of a new album was bleak as guitarist and band founder Brian Tatler previously revealed.

“I had no interest in doing another record but after working with Ras on the 2014 European tour that suddenly changed.  I wanted to make a record with him.  He’s a confident singer and he’s not trying to fill anyone’s shoes.”  Recording of the album commenced last July with the band and engineer Adam Beddow at the helm.  Tatler notes, “I gave Rasmus some music to listen to last January.  He selected songs or riffs that he wanted to work on and we began rehearsing.  We whittled things down to fourteen songs by April.”  Eleven songs were selected in the end for the album; all mixed by Dave Nicholls and mastered by John Davis at London ’s Metropolis.

DIAMOND HEAD tour dates are:

11/02 – Slim’s, San Francisco CA

Death Valley High Releases Creepy New Video for “Ick Switch”

In celebration of release week and their favorite holiday, alternative goth rockers DEATH VALLEY HIGH have unleashed yet another single from their new album, CVLT [AS FVK], out this Friday, November 4 via Minus Head Records. Today, the band offers up the music video for “ICK SWITCH” – a crunchy, crawling industrial club banger perfect for any Halloween party.

The video for “ICK SWITCH” puts the band inside of a semi-gory horror movie, a concept that connects to their first CVLT [AS FVK] music video for “WARM BODIES” (you may see some familiar faces towards the end). The video was directed by Brian Cox of Flarelight Films (All Hail the Yeti, Hollywood Undead, Gemini Syndrome) and also features Creighton Emrick of electronic industrial rockers Orgy assisting on vocals for the visual.

Vocalist Reyka Osburn states, “ICK SWITCH is about the love of horror movies… that feeling of wanting to be startled or pushed to the edge of your seat; the basic desire to get face to face with your fears. We discussed making a more abstract video by stringing a slew of icky images together with director Brian Cox. The question was how to present them. Right after our chat, he filmed a live performance in LA and kept the footage. As always, he did a bang up job of working it all together.

The video is a “prequel” of sorts to our first single “WARM BODIES” which featured the Skittles Song character, BRUBE. It was the perfect tie in for all these horrifi-ICK images to be presented by a possessed-looking gore fanatic.”

Dope Release Lyric Video for “1999” Off Upcoming ‘Blood Money Part 1’

DOPE has released the lyric video for “1999” off of their hotly anticipated Blood Money Part 1 LP. The final single anticipates the release of Blood Money Part 1 this Friday, October 28.

After much anticipation, the release date for Blood Money is finely upon us..
We’ve already dropped 3 full length music videos and today we are dropping a lyric video for the song 1999.
I anticipate that this song will be one of the fan favorites off the new record..
Looking forward to Friday!

Testament releases music video for “The Pale King”

Legendary bay area thrash metal giants Testament released their 11th album, Brotherhood Of The Snake, this past Friday via Nuclear Blast. Today, they have released a music video for the brand new song “The Pale King”,

“Secret societies, unknown other worlds, and superstitions mark this our 13th music video,” comments guitarist Eric Peterson. “We wanted to do a band performance video with abstract ancient alien visuals, which we are set in. I think it’s easily one of our best so far, and it was a lot of fun to make and work with Nuclear Bast recently newcomer Tommy Jones! Hails!”

Vocalist Chuck Billy recently sat down with WeedmapsTV / Marijuana.com for an exclusive interview. In it the two discuss the evolution of the marijuana industry, a subject the band touches on in a new song off their forthcoming record, Brotherhood Of The Snake.

Verdia release haunted music video for “Still Breathing”

Alt-rock group VERIDIA has released a thrilling music video for their new single “Still Breathing.” The video was directed by Matt DeLisi, the director behind their previous video for “Pretty Lies” and filmed at a haunted house located in the band’s hometown of Nashville. The group is currently on tour with Evanescence and at work on an upcoming 2017 full-length.

“Still Breathing” shares the important message of dealing with fear, something frontwoman Deena Jakoub’s deals with on personal level and is portrayed in the music video.

I don’t write because I have all the answers or because I want everyone to think I’m in this really good place,” says Jakoub. “In fact, I am struggling, I am still healing, I am human. ‘Still Breathing’ was written to say, I feel you, we’re all struggling through something, and though there are some things we may solely have to endure on our own, we don’t have to process it alone.

This song was birthed out of fear and grew into an anthem of strength and conquering for me. I have a chronic illness that takes fear to the next level, and when I am over-stressed, anxiety and panic chase me down no matter how fast I run. What I’ve recently learned and keeps me going, is to actually slow down and find something to be grateful for in that day, in that moment. When I wrote this song, my gratitude was literally focused on being alive, having been given a chance to breathe another breath into the day. Sometimes all you need is a shift in perspective.

Vulnerability can be painful, but I think it’s worth it if someone else can be empowered by what you’ve endured. I share because I hope that someone finds strength through what I’ve learned in my weakness.

Anaal Nathrakh streams new album, ‘The Whole of the Law’, online

Anaal Nathrakh was created for one purpose – to be the soundtrack for Armageddon, the audial essence of evil, hatred and violence, the true spirit of necro taken to its musical extremes.

Due out TODAY via Metal Blade Records, ‘The Whole of the Law’ marries all of the two-piece’s trademark ferocity and against-all-reason-catchiness with a reinvigorated sense of focus and insane hatred.
