Sacramento, California power metallers NIVIANE has released an official live video for their song “Arise Samurai” which appears on their debut album “The Druid King” released through Pitch Black Records. Continue reading
NOTHING have unveiled new video “I Hate The Flowers” directed by Matt Newman. The single, written by frontman Domenic Palermo and Brandon Setta, is a love song about NYC and the strong sense of impending doom it leaves on you as you exit your apartment. Its title is a nod to the agoraphobic anthem by Strawberry Switchblade’s “Trees and Flowers” but also a sequel to the band’s “Vertigo Flowers” which appeared on 2016’sTired of Tomorrow. Palermo notes “I’ve been referring to humans as flowers since the earliest days of NOTHING for their beautifully sad and their literal life/death cycle is so relatable.”
The thirst and hunger for blood is never quenched! Prepare for “Feast Of Flesh!” The savage new shredder from EXMORTUS! Watch the official music video streaming below.
On the concept behind the track, EXMORTUS founder, vocalist and guitarist, Conan tells LA Weekly: As some may have noticed on my personal page, I don’t just post guitar or band stuff, but a lot of food pictures and I’m no vegan. ‘Feast of Flesh’ is a celebration of our carnal needs and desires. I’m not trying to make any political/environmental statements but I feel this song expresses the ugly and brutal nature of humans and other animals. It ain’t pretty so we thought it would be fun to shoot the band chowing down on actual raw flesh fresh from the meat market. My girlfriend was willing to play the hapless victim of the carnage, which made the whole experience quite fun and yet funny since we were all trying to act and not laugh at the whole idea. The song itself is more of a caveman stompy headbanger so the music works beautifully with the lyrics and visuals in bloody harmony. So, sit back and enjoy the Feast of Flesh! Cheers!
Gothenburg-based melodic death metal pioneers AT THE GATES continue to promote their upcoming new studio album, “To Drink From The Night Itself”, (Out May 18, 2018 via CENTURY MEDIA RECORDS) by launching its newest single and music video clip for the song “Daggers Of Black Haze”.
WATCH the video for “Daggers Of Black Haze” — created by Costin Chioreanu / Twilight 13 Media (who was also in charge of the album’s artwork concept)– below.
AT THE GATES frontman Tomas Lindberg comments on the track as follows:
“Daggers of Black Haze” represents the more progressive side of the new record. It has a lot of reference-points to our early back catalogue, both style wise, and the emotional setting. It is desperate and urgent, but still melancholic and epic. It is conceptually one of the cornerstones of the album. Driving home the point of the need for a war on apathy and the populistic forces that takes advantage of it. This is a fight against the abyss. A beacon for the importance of real art, real forms of expression, and importance of our understanding of our mutual cultural history. The video was filmed by Costin Chioreanu once again, and it is full of symbolism and heavy on the conceptual side. Costin displays the war for art and the importance of standing up to the oppressive powers and paradigms with his film. It is beautiful, striking, melancholic and I am very happy to see his vision of my concept.”
This Friday, January 12th, marks the release of the new album from White Wizzard. Today Decibel is pleased to premiere the lyric video to the album’s heavy metal title track, “Infernal Overdrive”. Watch the lyric video below.
“We are welcoming the new year by releasing a second video from our latest album, ‘Codex Omega’ – this time for the song, ‘Martyr’. Once again the clip is directed by Jon Simvonis, blending the music of SEPTICFLESH with Kendo, which literally means ‘the way of the sword’. It is a battle of sword and spirit. The ultimate goal of the fighter is to become superior to his own previous self.” Via Septic Flesh
Director Jon Simvonis adds: “We really had an awesome time filming SEPTICFLESH while they were delivering an explosive performance for the ‘Martyr’ video! No wonder, why this band nails it on every stage that they set foot on.”

Bow your heads down to the Cavalera brothers, and a heavy release day to the thrash metal legends! Today the brand new album ‘Psychosis‘ by CAVALERA CONSPIRACY has been released on Napalm Records, but to celebrate this very special day, the band has now also unleashed an official music video for the track ‘Spectral War‘!
Says Max Cavalera:
“Our new video “Spectral War” was directed by the great tattoo artist, Paul Booth. It focuses on the idea of manipulating war through the ages! I’m very excited for the release of “Psychosis!” Death/Thrash Metal is back to set the world on fire!!!”
‘Psychosis‘ is the fourth installment from the most lucent export of Brazil: The Thrash Metal-masters dive deep into the mire of human panic and anxiety states. This is the soundtrack to your worst sickness, a most sinister Thrash-psychoses that rip the scabs from old wounds.
With ‘Psychosis‘ CAVALERA CONSPIRACY are able to reanimate the intensity of the good old 80s thrash, black and death metal. These brothers have outlived all the crazy eras of metal and remain more stable and frightening than ever! ‘Psychosis‘ is terrific, in the truest sense of the word. You won’t find any thrash metal on the planet that could boast more brutal!
A Perfect Circle, who recently released “The Doomed,” the first new music to be heard from the band’s expected 2018 album, return with an accompanying video for the “apocalyptic” (Rolling Stone)
The video, which was directed by Jeremy Danger and Travis Shinn, arrives as the band is in the final two weeks of their North American tour. A Perfect Circle also recently announced their first European tour in fourteen years (dates below).
Upon arrival of “The Doomed”, Maynard James Keenan said: “Fourteen years have passed since we released eMOTIVe. A new release is long overdue. In light of this current difficult and polarized social, spiritual and political climate, we artist types need to open our big mouths and share the light a little louder.”
“Years of life experience has brought our music to this moment,” offered Billy Howerdel. “We know where we came from. Deeply connected to the path we’re on.”
A Perfect Circle have signed a worldwide recording deal with BMG and are working with producer Dave Sardy on the follow-up to 2004’s eMOTIVe.

Gore metal maniacs EXHUMED have shared the official music video for “Night Work” off the impending, new full-length album Death Revenge.
Frontman Matt Harvey comments: “We are extremely stoked to present this cinematic clip that brings you deep into the world of the Death Revenge storyline. Director Jeff Sisson really outdid himself capturing the vibe and violence of the record and the concept. This is the first video we’ve done that really fulfills the horror-movie vision we’ve always wanted to capture with our music. Spoiler Alert: It’s a tale of grave-robbery, murder and madness. So sit back, turn off the lights, lock your doors, and get ready to undertake some ‘Night Work’ with us.”
On having to change habits on the road due to Decapitated arrests: “And if you think that you can do something without consequences and that nobody is watching, you’re probably mistaken whether it’s rape or sexual assault or saying something inappropriate or whatever. And if you’re if you’re in a band and you want to go out on tour and get laid, that’s great, that’s completely fine, but if you think that you’re entitled to it because you’re in a band you deserve whatever is coming to you. I don’t think it’s really going to change anything much because this is just such a weird random outlying event. It’s not like it’s happening all the time.” see full interview with Capital Chaos TV here.
EXHUMED‘s sixth full-length sees them tread into ambitious new territory with their first concept album: a musical melodrama in thirteen parts based on shocking true events. Death Revenge takes place in the late 1820s in Edinburgh, Scotland and tells the macabre tale of a series of brutal murders where the victims’ cadavers were sold to anatomists, amid a grisly underground trade of grave-robbery. Recorded with producer Jarrett Pritchard (Goatwhore, Eternal, Gruesome), Death Revenge takes the band’s signature gore-drenched, death metal mayhem to theatrical and ghastly new depths. Cover illustration is by Orion Landau with interior illustrations by Lucas Ruggieri (lucasriggieriillustration.com).
EXHUMED recently announced a short run of live dates in November with The Black Dahlia Murder, Suffocation, Decrepit Birth and more as well as a performance at Ozzfest Meets Knotfest on November 5th in San Bernardino, California.
