And another week comes to an end, with two weeks of holiday to look forward to if you’re school age and based in Scotland. Remember, kids, the best way to spend a fortnight off is listening to metal while giving your parents some peace and quiet!
Acid Reign – “The Man Who Became Himself”
The follow up to their acclaimed song “Plan of the Damned” (as featured on the new Music for Nations Speed Kills VII compilation.), “The Man Who Became Himself” (featuring artwork by Andy “Very Metal Art” Pilkington) captures the band on bludgeoning form that picks up where the bruising POTD left off. Catch the band on tour, including a stint at tomorrow’s Lords of the Lands festival in Glasgow!
Ice Nine Kills – “The Nature of the Beast”
Ice Nine Kills have revealed the third and final chapter of their video trilogy with the song “Nature Of The Beast”. The final installation continues the narrative of 2015’s “Communion Of The Cursed” and last year’s “Hell In The Hallways” music videos.
Epic Death – “Incantation Of Epic Death” (360° Video)
Epic Death has done it again. They have taken their video catalogue to the next level by doing a lyric video with a 360 degree twist. The track for the video is “Incantation Of Epic Death”, taken from their 2015 debut Witchcraft.
Black Stone Cherry – “Cheaper To Drink Alone”
Black Stone Cherry show off their best acting chops in the new video for “Cheaper To Drink Alone”, the latest single to be taken from their Top 5 album, Kentucky. Directed by Blake Judd and featuring Lzzy Hale and Joe Hottinger of Halestorm and comedians Ron White & Alex Reymundo, the video is set at a speed dating event, with the band members playing the roles of the participants, both male and female. The “female” daters are then shown rocking out at a Black Stone Cherry concert to hilarious effect.
Kampfar – “Mylder”
After two highly successful music videos “Daimon'” and “Tornekratt” from their Norwegian Grammy award winning album Profan, Kampfar have made an untraditional move and created a video for a song from a previous album, namely the “Mylder” track off of companion album Djevelmakt.
The Dollyrots – “Mermaid”
After another hugely successful PledgeMusic campaign, and months of build up, The Dollyrots are delighted to be able to say that their new album Whiplash Splash is finally released. The sixth full length album to be released by the band in their fifteen plus years together, Whiplash Splash is receiving some of the best reviews of the band’s career to date. They’re currently out taking the album on tour.
The band’s other activities have not stopped just because they are on the road. Indeed they have found time to put together a lyric video for another of the tracks from Whiplash Splash, the song “Mermaid” (which features heavily in the theme for the album’s artwork).
