The 69 Eyes – “Miss Pastis”
Helsinki Vampires The 69 Eyes are ready to unveil their new music video for “Miss Pastis”. The song is a rock hymn about French alcohol & women with the simple chorus “Salut, ça va!” and comes off their latest morbid masterpiece Universal Monsters. The clip was once again directed and filmed by fronter Jyrki 69 himself and the Finnish quintet decided to release it on “La Fête Nationale”, France’s National Day on July 14th.
Karmakanic – “God, the Universe, and Everything Else No One Cares About, Pt.1 (edit)”
Sweden-based progressive rockers Karmakanic are set to release their fifth album DOT on the 22nd July, 2016. Now they are pleased to reveal the first lyric video for an edit of the originally 23-minute epic track “God the universe and everything else no one really cares about, Pt. I (edit)”. Jonas Reingold had this to say about the track, which also features his colleague from The Tangent, Andy Tillison, on Hammond organ:
When you are trying to compress a 30-minute prog epic into 6 minutes, you know that you are up for a difficult task. What parts should be in it? Will the fans get the lyrical content? Can I somehow make a coherent piece of music in this format? Well, that’s really up to the listener to decide but I feel strongly that the parts I put together really work well in combination with this fantastic video. I hope you will enjoy this as much as I did while working on this. Soon you all will hear the whole song, but until then, enjoy!!!
