Hmm. Tuesday. I never could get the hang of Tuesdays. Or is it Thursdays? Actually, Wednesdays aren’t that great either. Let’s just watch some videos.
Korn – “Insane”
Korn have today unveiled a strange, fascinating video for new song, “Insane”. Directed by Ryan Valdez, it’s a ghastly take on post-mortem photography or ‘momento mori’, the practice of preserving loved ones after death with images.
The song is lifted from upcoming LP The Serenity of Suffering and can be downloaded now. The album itself is available for pre-order in a number of formats: digital download, deluxe edition download, CD, Deluxe Edition CD and vinyl.
Far From History – “Shockwave Asylum”
“Shockwave Asylum” is taken from the bands incredible new EP Gallows Hill which was self-released last week (Amazon link). The band took on this year’s Bloodstock Open Air Festival earlier this month and next month will tour the UK promoting their new release.

The Alchemy – “Blackhole Passenger”
The Alchemy are a Canterbury based 4-piece exponent of the new breed of English rock bands that effortlessly blend big guitars, big synths and big melodies.
We’re really excited about releasing this video for Black Hole Passenger. Black Hole Passenger is a song about not getting pulled into someone else’s train wreck. We really wanted a simple but effective video of us smashing out the song live to give people an idea of the energy and passion we have for our music.
The track come from their debut EP Modern Age which is out now (Amazon link).
Cross the Divide – “Sail on the Stars”
Hard/progressive rock trio Cross The Divide have released the Official Video for “Sail On The Stars,” the sophomore single off of their upcoming full length debut album Fearless, due out on October 14th.
‘Sail on the Stars’ is a song that deals with loss. The message in this song is that when a person is left behind due to death or parting, it is important to be able to let go and find comfort in the right places. In the case of hurt, forgiveness is a vital part of that parting and grieving process. This song deals with all of that in a simple idea, a blessing: ‘sail on the stars.’
You can purchase “Sail on the Stars” through CD Baby.
