The end of the week is rolling towards us like a very patient, and slow, bulldozer… Hopefully these will tide you over in the meantime:
Deprive – “A Mournful Prophecy”
Death metal brimming with emotions, leaning towards the doom spectrum as well (think of the UK doom trio), Deprive’s latest album is something everyone should sink their teeth into. Few will end up unrewarded. The band have released an official video of one of their doomier tracks, “A Mournful Prophecy”.
A Sense of Gravity – “Echo Chasers”
US prog metallers A Sense of Gravity are delighted to share the news of their forthcoming LP, Atrament, due for release on November 18th. To mark the occasion, the band have unveiled their sumptuous new video for single “Echo Chasers”.
Skyharbor – “Chemical Hands”
Indian prog-metallers Skyharbor unveil new song and video “Chemical Hands”, the third single from their upcoming third album, set for release in 2017. Guitarist Keshav Dhar says:
“Chemical Hands” is possibly the boldest, most experimental song we have written to date. After releasing two fairly straightforward singles, we felt it was time to let rip and showcase the more bizarre and angry side of the upcoming new record.
Michael Di Lonardo has created an absolutely stunning video for the song, perfectly representing the lyrical theme while being ambiguous enough for fans to pick their brains and stroke their goatees over. We’re stoked, and we hope our fans will be too.
Mos Generator – “Catspaw”
Mos Generator’s latest album Abyssinia, released in July 2016, received critical acclaim from press worldwide. Main songwriter Tony Reed explains why he picked “Catspaw” for a video:
To me Catspaw sounds like e a song I would have written when I was in my early 20s. When I break it down it seems like a prog version of 80s underground music. Like something that would have been on SST Records meets Rush and Voivod. It’s a song about drowning in the shame of how you perceive yourself.
