A wee rundown of the latest videos from a wide range of sub-genres within the Metal/Rock scene…
Project Silence, a band is known from their energetic live performances and tight playing is an industrial metal outfit from Finland, combining extreme metal to headbanging industrial. Their new album was recorded, mixed and mastered by themselves and features some thrash, black and extreme metal influence.
Progressive metalcore band Carcer City have unveiled new video ‘Sovereign’, the latest to be taken from their upcoming new album, Infinite/Unknown, out this 16 September via Stay Sick Records. An exciting blend of 21st century metal that is uniquely their own, Carcer City fall somewhere between Linkin Park, Meshuggah, Bring Me the Horizon, Killswitch Engage, and The Amity Affliction.
Following on from a successful Summer including an appearance at the Isle of Wight Festival, London alt rockers Heel have released a fantastic new video for single “Shatter”. The video was directed by Sikth frontman Mikee W Goodman, and the track is taken from the bands debut album The Parts We Save, which was released earlier this year.
The Agonist will release their new album and Napalm Records debut Five on September 30th. Today the band has dropped the first official video from Five, for the song “The Moment”.
Frontwoman Vicky Psarakis spoke about the making of the video:
“The Moment’ was probably the most exciting and demanding video I’ve had to shoot so far. Chris (bassist / FTB Visuals director) came up to me with the idea to create a “storyline” with a close up of just my face singing the lyrics underwater. And we achieved it by building a box with a plexiglas panel that fit my head, while the rest of my body was standing and perfectly dry. I guess you could say it was scary and awkward to have just your head submerged underwater and a bit dangerous to have to perform the entire song in that position, but honestly, I wouldn’t mind doing the whole thing all over again!”
Up and coming multi-national rock act Blues Pills have released the official music video for the song ‘I Felt A Change’ from the brand new album, Lady In Gold (review here) which was released on August 5th via Nuclear Blast. The video was directed by Johan Bååth (Avatarium, Dregen) who is best known for his work with cult director Jonas Åkerlund (The Rolling Stones, U2, Madonna, Ozzy Osbourne, Metallica) and shot by well known Backyard Babies drummer Peder Carlsson.
