A little delayed today, but we’re making up for it with a couple of corkers to start you off…
Sabaton – “Sparta”
Today, Sabaton release a new lyric video for the song “Sparta”.
The band comments: “The battle of Thermopylae is in many ways one of the most iconic last stands in history. King Leonidas and his 300 Spartans were certainly not as alone as portrayed in the famous movie ”300”, but in the end it was their sacrifice that would be remembered by the world to come. An amazing story of the Greek nation states which would rather die than lose their freedom.”
Hacktivist – “No Way Back”
MK genre-defying quintet Hacktivist have released the video for “No Way Back”, taken from their debut album Outside The Box which is out now on UNFD.
“No Way Back” was directed by Hacktivist bassist Josh Gurner, who explains the meaning behind the track and video concept:
“No Way Back” is a reaction to the sad state of affairs we find ourselves in today. The general population are realising we have created a corrupt and non-sustainable society of inequality, overconsumption and misinformation, but are too familiar with the status quo to unite and influence change towards a solution.
Most of us are content with being sold ideals of distraction and instant gratification. We acknowledge that there is a broken system, but will quickly dismiss hideous revelations or opportunities for progression because “it’s always been that way”.
If we keep clinging to this mentality, there will be no way back.
The Iron Eye – “Just Started”
Brisbane best purveyors of alternative rock, The Iron Eye have just released possibly the best god damned video clip you’ll see this year [their words, but.. actually…].
As if the track itself isn’t produced-by-Tom-Larkin-of-Shihad-super-awesome-level already, the clip takes the song and ratchets it up by about a factor of ten.
The filmclip plays out in reverse, meaning that the carnage that is the product of the shoot can be seen right at the start of the clip. The band played (and sung!) the song in reverse, which means they are going forward. Everyone else in the clip is going backwards. All manner of liquids, solids, Motorbikes, basketballs, silly string and couches and Ukuleles are featured and destroyed.
Insision – “Shapeshifting”
Insision have launched a brand new video for the track “Shapeshifting”, from their 2016 album Terminal Reckoning.
