Weekend Part One: The Saturday.
Turbid North – “Pyramid Drones”
Alaskan Mountain Metal crew Turbid North have launch a brand new video for the track ‘Pyramid Drones’. The song is taken from their second full length album ‘Eyes Alive’ which is penned for release on 30th September via Apocalyptic Witchcraft. The album is released on limited edition 180gram blood red vinyl and comes with a patch.
Vocalist Nick comments:
The video was shot in an awesome venue we play regularly in Fort Worth, TX called Tomcats West. We rented some lights and one camera on a tripod to film ourselves. Did about 10 takes with different angles. No camera man, completely DIY. It isn’t the most action packed video, but we needed something quick and I really thought it was important to show off the new lineup.
Sonata Arctica – “Life”
Finnish power metal titans, Sonata Arctica, will unleash their new studio album, The Ninth Hour on October 7th via Nuclear Blast. Yesterday the band released the music video for the brand-new song, “Life”. Tony Kakko comments:
I tried desperately to have at least one positive, uplifting song on this album and maybe this is it. I always struggle writing positive lyrics, that’s the thing. We’ve been called “happy metal” many times because of the melodies and so on, but lyrics are usually something that do not walk the sunny side of the road. They contrast the music. ‘Life’ anyway, is telling people to find good things in life, find the things hurting and causing harm and replacing them with positive things with help of friends. Go out and be together with people, share experiences, live. I know it’s a dumb thing to say, but life is better alive.
You can pre-order the album on Amazon and help support this site: [amazon text=digital download&asin=B01KYEE7MS] / [amazon text=CD&asin=B01K6Z3O2O] / [amazon text=vinyl&asin=B01K6Z3O0Q]
Youth Man – “Look/Wait”
Birmingham noise-punk trio Youth Man are pleased to reveal the new animated video for “Look/Wait”, the latest track to be taken from their critically acclaimed EP Wax, out now on Venn Records. Vocalist and guitarist Kaila Whyte explains the inspiration behind the track:
This song came together in like a minute. It’s based on a dream I had where an extra-terrestrial kidnapping took place. We wanted it to sound like standing in a wind tunnel feels.
Levania – “Memory”
Levania are proud to announce that their new single “Memory” is finally available on all the major digital stores via Wormholedeath/The Orchard. The official video for the song is out to go along with it.
