*Actually, Glasgow. Ah, well.
Normaliser – “Cataclysmic Firestorm”
Formed somewhere around 2009, Sheffield based Normaliser are a progressive post-metal band. Starting out as an industrial punk-metal act but soon realising that wasn’t very good, they developed their sound to combine elements of doom, prog, sludge and metal – it’s big, it’s heavy and it changes a lot. Socially awkward and rarely seen in daylight, they have released their 6 track album titled 456e64 in July 2015 (Amazon download), now working on a follow up to that while working on UK and EU shows for 2016-2017.
Atonismen – “Wise Wise Man”
Russian chamber gothic-metal band Atonismen premiere a new music video for “Wise Wise Man”, taken from the band’s upcoming EP. The band was formed by composer and singer Alexandr Orso in 2016. In November the band will go on their first tour with Russian folk band Izmoroz.
Meshiaak – “At The Edge Of The World”
With “At The Edge Of The World” being the song that many of the guys in Meshiaak have pointed to as one of their favourite tracks from Alliance Of Thieves, it’s no coincidence that it’s the second single to be released from the record with a music video. Using a beautiful visual style which was heavily inspired by the movie Sin City, the video perfectly compliments the dark and brooding vocal performance of former 4ARM frontman Danny Camilleri, as well as the highly sophisticated guitar work of Teramaze’s Dean Wells.
Celeb Car Crash – “Let Me In”
Alternative rock band Celeb Car Crash have released the official video for “Let Me In”, from their sophomore LP People Are The Best Show, due out September 21, 2016. People Are The Best Show can be described as a powerful mix of rock, grunge and alternative. Inside the twelve songs that make up the album, you can hear influences from such bands as Foo Fighters, Kings of Leon, Soundgarden, Metallica, and Alice in Chains.
