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.

Devilment release music video for “Hitchcock Blonde”

Witch County nefarious frights DEVILMENT – led by vehement front man Dani Filth, will release their forthcoming masterpiece Devilment II: The Mephisto Waltzes on November 18 via  Nuclear Blast Entertainment. Today, the band have released the first official music video for ‘Hitchcock Blonde’, premiering exclusively via Metal Hammer.

The video was directed by Sam Scott Hunter with a skeleton crew of academic students, with thanks to  Film Suffolk. It features actress Leanne Joyce as the Hitchcock Blonde, who has appeared on Britain’s Next Top Model, Call The Midwife and The Royals to name a few.

Dani comments: “This is all about the legendary film director Alfred Hitchcock’s infatuation with his on-screen heroines; cool, controlled, aloof and sophisticated blondes. The song even name-checks ten of his favourite actresses. As ever there is a psychotic bend to the lyrics and the accompanying video, which was shot in a derelict, haunted hotel in the middle of Ipswich (the band’s home town) where Lord Nelson was said to have stayed on numerable occasions. The various hideous frights throughout the video were past denizens of the hotel captured on camera.”

Dani’s crew have meticulously pieced together a second blood-spattered batch of deranged anthems that brings vastly more colour, intensity and lyrical versatility to this band’s spectral palate. The second DEVILMENT record makes no splintered bones about its nefarious intent, offering a bewildering torrent of disparate and demented ideas and delivering them with refined, ultra-gothic panache and several jolting doses of Dani’s trademark verbal subterfuge. Assisted by long-time collaborators Lauren Francis (keys and vocals), Colin Parks (guitar), Nick Johnson (bass) and new drummer Matt Alston, Dani has arrived at the telling moment where DEVILMENT become a genuine force to be reckoned with.

D.O.A. Election Special US Tour

When Keithley set out to write the songs for the album, he used D.O.A.’s early efforts like Hardcore 81, Something Better Change and War on 45 as a bit of template, in the sense that the songs should be quick, short, and right to the point. His songwriting takes on a wide range of modern and horrible screw ups, ranging from racism, to street gangs, to war, and environmental degradation. 

Canada’s legendary punk pioneers are headed back to the US with new music videos and a new mission. Joe Shithead Keithley, the godfather of hardcore, is rallying for living wages and corporate fairness on pay via the music video “Not Gonna Take Your Crap No More” from D.O.A.’s latest album, Hard Rain Falling (their 16th studio album). He also calls out the Republican candidate for president in “F*cked Up Donald.”

“Not Gonna Take Your Crap No More” is just the tip of the protest iceberg for Hard Rain Falling. “The Cops Shot a Kid” takes on the tension in America over police shootings of unarmed men, and “Warmonger” is a commentary on the scourge of war and the ever increasing blind acceptance of war as a matter of business, money, and convenience by big media, big business and big government.
 
D.O.A., long known for their pro environmental stance, also take a wide swing at the oil industry with “Pipeline Fever,” a track that features Keithley doing his best Johnny Rotten, “We mean it, man!” In a rather pointed manner, the band hits all the key notes on “Racism Sucks” then brings Hard Rain Falling’s self evident commentary on the state of the world full circle, by closing it out with a revved up version of Johnny Cash’s “San Quentin.”
 
Now, the “Men Of Action” are returning to the US for some unfinished business.
