Here we go with another bunch of early week videos, aimed at keeping you awake!
XII Boar – “Black and Blues”
Here’s a colossal slab of rock’n’roll fun for you, with the brand new music video from UK party metallers XII Boar (that’s “12 Boar”, not “Zee Boar”) for “Black and Blues”.
The song is taken from XII Boar’s excellent second full-length Beyond The Valley of The Triclops, which was recorded and produced by Chris Fielding at Skyhammer Studio (Conan, Electric Wizard, Winterfylleth). It’s something of a departure from the trio’s usual brash, Motörhead-esque sound – don’t worry, you’ll still get a decent dose of swaggering, Southern fried riffs and those gruff, throaty vocals, but “Black And Blues” finds XII Boar easing their foot off the gas a little to make room for some soaring harmonica, acoustic fingerpicking and a bluesy, world-weary atmosphere. A perfect song to drown your sorrows to in some dive bar at 3AM, in other words.
Palisades – “Fall”
New Jersey’s Palisades have released a new video for the track “Fall”, taken from their brand new self-titled album, out now via Rise Records.
For I Am – “Simpleton For President”
During the weekend, Trump was sworn in as the 45th president of the United States of America. Ugh… right? During the Inauguration, Belgian pop punk outfit For I Am uploaded a lyric video for the appropriately titled “Simpleton For President”. That’s right, this fun-lovin’ bunch gets downright political on your ass for this one!
For I Am will be releasing their brand new full length album All About Perspectives on March 17 via Bearded Punk Records (BE), Trilob Records (NL), Infected Records (PT) and Disconnect Disconnect (UK).
Downfall – “Rise”

Awakening is their debut EP which the band recently self-released, produced by Erik Bickerstaffe of Loathe (Sharptone Records) the record is full of heavy, technical, groovy riffs as well as melodic, catchy choruses. For their first record, it’s definitely made a statement and has set the standards high for their future releases. Listen to it in full on soundcloud.
