Finishing off the week with our regular quartet, this time giving focus to a handful of lyric videos that have popped up recently.
Sahg – “Blood of Oceans”
The norse/pagan inspired closing track, “Blood Of Oceans”, is the first Sahg song ever to feature Norwegian lyrics. The song was co-written by Wardruna frontman and original Sahg drummer, Einar Selvik, who also appeared on the recording.
Chariots of the Gods – “Resurrection”
Melodic death metallers Chariots of the Gods have unleashed their new lyric video “Resurrection” in support of their new album Ages Unsung, which was released this past September. “Resurrection” is one of ten shredding tracks recorded at The Grid with legendary Montreal producer Chris Donaldson (Cryptopsy, The Agonist, Beyond Creation, Neuraxis). The album also features a special guest solo from The Agonist’s Pascal Jobin on the song “Into Oblivion”.
Megosh – “Desperada”
Baltimore’s Megosh recently announced the release of their debut full-length album, titled Apostasy, which has been set for release on December 16th with Outerloop Records. After dropping the album’s debut single “I Stole From The Dead,” last month to great acclaim, fans are wildly anticipating more from the band. Answering their call, Megosh are sharing a cinematic, Tarantino-style lyric video for their next track, “Desperada”. “Desperada” is a relatable song about that toxic relationship or that one person whom we couldn’t get off our minds. Vocalist Josh Grosscup explains:
Well, don’t you hate it when you finally get over them and they just want to come back around to rain stomp all over your happiness?! This song is about dealing with an old lover that comes back around just when you are starting to be happy again.
Aphyxion – “Dark Stains on Ivory”
Danish modern metal 5-piece Aphyxion have released “Dark Stains On Ivory”, the explosive second single from their forthcoming album Aftermath which is out on the 2nd December via Prime Collective. “Dark Stains On Ivory” follows the band’s previous single “Destined To Fail”, which surpassed 100,000 streams across all digital platforms in a matter of weeks. Guitarist/songwriter Jonas Haagensen says of the track:
Dark Stains on Ivory is probably the most representative song for the album. This banger was one of the first songs we wrote after our debut album, all made to mark the new sound of our new album.
