A quick blast of half a dozen new and recent released to get your eyeballs and earholes into…
Saint Apache – “The Story Doesn’t End Here”
Fiery UK unit, Saint Apache, drop their mesmerising new EP Wolf Machine on Friday 21st July. The raucous crew have also just premiered the video for “The Story Doesn’t End Here”.
Saint Apache are a highly intriguing angular alternative quartet hailing from Eastbourne, England. Pulling from an array of influences, ranging from the venom of Every Time I Die, to the attitude of Gallows, and the political potency of Rage Against The Machine, the south-coasters churn out compelling monolithic guitar riffs, distorted bass, hard-hitting drums, and an aggressive gritty edge, served up by Thom Meredith’s super charged vocals.
Ate Bit – “Back to the Loser”
Gritty NY-based skatepunk band Ate Bit released their debut album No Space Like Home last November and today you can watch the music video for the single “Back to the Loser” below. Produced by John Naclerio (Brand New, My Chemical Romance, Real Friends), the fast and brash song is a throwback to bands like Millencolin and would easily fit on a Tony Hawk Pro Skater soundtrack.
Blind Guardian – “The Ninth Wave (Live)”
Progressive power metallers Blind Guardian have released their first live album in 14 years – Live Beyond The Spheres is a collection of 22 tracks including all-time classics such as “The Bard’s Song (In The Forest)” and “Mirror Mirror”, but also rarely performed tracks like “And Then There Was Silence”. In celebration of the new release, the band has posted a live video for the track “The Ninth Wave”.
If you want the real thing, the band are playing main stage on the Friday at this year’s Bloodstock Festival.
Paradise Lost – “The Longest Winter”
Winter comes early this year, and today, cult metallers Paradise Lost unveil the lyric video for their first single “The Longest Winter” off their upcoming studio album Medusa. Watch the haunting new clip below. Nick Holmes explains the background of the song:
I read a story about how wildlife was once beginning to flourish in the 30 mile exclusion zone after the Chernobyl disaster in 1986 – particularly the wolf population. It was nice to think that that no matter how much mankind tried to fuck the planet up directly or indirectly, life carries on in some shape or form. But humans are humans and I recently heard that there is already now ‘timed’ hunting trips organised into the exclusion zone…
Betraying The Martyrs – “The Resilient Live at Hellfest 2017”
France’s Betraying The Martyrs have revealed a live video for latest single “The Resilient”. Showcasing their epic performance on the Hellfest Main Stage as well as some behind the scenes snippets, the video will serve to tide European fans over until their return later in the year.
Roxin’ Palace – “Monsters Love”
Find here the official music video for “Monsters Love“, taken from the latest album Freaks Of Society, published via Sleaszy Rider Records.
