Denner / Shermann recently released their debut, 4-track EP, Satan’s Tomb, via Metal Blade Records; today, the legendary guitar duo from Mercyful Fate has launched the video for the EP’s title track! Visions of darkness and blood-soaked women drench the digital landscape, while the band performs “Satan’s Tomb”.
Hank Shermann comments: “We are happy to be able to release a video for the title track, which was the first song that really got us going as a band.
Now we are building upon the shadowy metal essence of what we created with the ‘Satan’s Tomb‘ EP, and are moving forward with a full-length release for next year.”
Featuring cover artwork painted by Thomas Holm (best known for his work on Mercyful Fate‘s Melissa and Don’t Break The Oath), Satan’s Tomb is classic heavy metal infused with an outpouring of Michael Denner and Hank Shermann‘s signature, dark magic shred-work. According to the formidable guitar duo from Mercyful Fate, rounding out the line-up with Snowy Shaw (King Diamond, Therion, Sabaton) on drums, Marc Grabowski (Demonica) on bass guitar, and Sean Peck (Cage, Death Dealer) on vocals was a critical component to bringing these 4 tracks to life. Their critically acclaimed release has the press and fans both craving for more from this group.
Denner comments, “Creating these songs with this line-up really ignited my metal fire hotter than ever! I’m sure the fans are going to love this thing.”
Shermann adds, “This mix ended up really having an old school feel to it that sounds awesome when blasting at an unhealthy volume.”
Barbarous hellhounds Cradle Of Filth, have released a music video for the track ‘Blackest Magick In Practice’ The clip was directed by Sam Scott-Hunter and the song is taken from the groups latest tome of horror and romance, »Hammer of the Witches«
Comments the director:
“There’s dark madness in this video. ‘Blackest Magick In Practice’ is a deeply tragic tale of lost love. It’s the grief stricken insanity of trying to bring back that loved one from the dead; desperately trying to hold onto that person who’s gone, even if that leads down a dark and gruesome path. I don’t want to give it all away, but I will say that the hardest part of the production was getting hold of a human ear.
I wanted to convey the power of the band too, in amongst the romance, madness and magick. Behind the imagery of the lyrics is a great and powerful metal band of amazing musicians, and I hope people can feel the intensity of the band when they watch this. It is intense viewing. There should be a bit of madness in the video, because there’s madness in this song.”
|Allegaeon has launched a brand new video for “Threshold of Perception” from their most recent album, “Elements of the Infinite.” The band shot and edited the video themselves, with vocalist Ezra Haynes serving as the clip’s director. Allegaeon shot while they were in between their recent tours with Chimaira and Arsis where they ended up with some days off in Florida. Haynes elaborates on the project.“After doing a month long trek with Chimaira followed by another month long tour with Arsis, we found ourselves just north of Naples, Florida for 5 days,” says vocalist Ezra Haynes. “I know, sounds horrible right? A beach pretty much within walking distance. Who wants that? Anyway, we figured we’d be somewhat productive and film a play through since we had so much time off before returning home. Well, It didn’t really turn out that way. We thought to ourselves, ‘Let’s take one final blow at this Crabcore situation we have going on and just make a dumb video.’ So, we parked our rears on a beach for a few hours and filmed anything that came to our heads. Now we have a floaty wearing shredding crabbing seagull having hip-hop hyping death metal video that promotes good oral hygiene. Enjoy!”|
