Tuesday Video Roundup: Monster Truck, Metaprism, TAINA, Twelve Foot Ninja

Have you got the Christmas decorations up yet? Have you? Then go to Hell, go directly to Hell, do not pass Go, do not collect 200 Triganic Pu’s.

Monster Truck – “For The People”

Having warmed up the UK audience opening for Nickelback, Monster Truck will be back in March next year for their own headline tour. Tying in with the announcement, the band have released an animated video for “For The People”.

Metaprism – “Catharsis”

Metaprism distinguishes itself with a unique brand of melodic and progressive metal and a combination of male and female vocals, ruthless aggression and soaring melodies. Live and on record, their modern and melodic sound have left a big impression on audiences both in the UK and outside.

“Catharsis” is the first single from what will be their second album scheduled for release in 2017. The title of the track is inspired by the metaphor first used by Aristotle, defining an extreme change in emotion that results in renewal and restoration. It is reflecting the changes the band went through earlier in 2016, when their male vocalist, Jut Tabor, had to part ways with the band for personal reasons. With Joey Draper, Metaprism found a more than worthy replacement, who is able to add even more diversity vocally and is stamping his mark with this first release featuring his vocal talents. Alongside Theresa Smith, the vocal duo make a formidable pair with plenty of range, harmonic content and live energy.

TAINA – “Seelenfresser”

Industrial rock band TAINA has released a taste of their highly anticipated 2017 album, Seelenfresser (German for “Soul Eater”) in the form of a twisted, horror filled zombie music video. Directed by Daniel Steffen from B&B Production, “Seelenfresser” sets the tone for an album dealing with such themes as abuse of power and desperation.

Twelve Foot Ninja – “Sick”

Australian experimental metallers Twelve Foot Ninja have dropped a new video for “Sick”, taken from their album Outlier released via Volkanik earlier this year.

Twelve Foot Ninja are known for pushing the boundaries of music convention and fan engagement, and the video for “Sick” is no exception! Inspired by 80s VHS horror – with a nod to Stranger Things – the video is a nine-minute short film with three chapters, leading to a dark and grimly hilarious conclusion. The music kicks in around the 4-minute mark if you’re impatient!
