Video Roundup: Vended / The Hunna / Cassidy Paris / Bloodride / Scars of the Flesh / Derision Cult

I probably have a dozen (or six) other things I should be doing, but I can’t resist throwing a half dozen new videos your way as we have so many coming in these days!

Vended

Des Moines’ firebrands, Vended have revealed a new video for crushing new track, “Overall”.

Overall is a song about getting trapped in your own head and having your thoughts self-sabotage you. And how sometimes you are the only person who can help yourself get out of that headspace. “I salt the wound myself” has a double meaning; you either feel the pain from bad thoughts, or you lean into it and embrace them.

The Hunna

The Hunna have released the video for their new single “Take A Ride (Lights, Camera, Action)” taken from their acclaimed new self-titled album out now via Believe.

We just wanted an up-tempo one for shows that people were just going to jump around and go crazy to. It’s definitely got a throwback sound to me as well.

Cassidy Paris

Australian rocker Cassidy Paris has had a busy 2022. With a sold out EP Launch for her latest EP Flirt and multiple live shows all over her home country of Australia, Cassidy has also announced dates for her first ever tour of the UK this November. Gigs include festival appearances at Hard Rock Hell, Winter Storm, and a special guest slot to fellow Aussie rockers, Wicked Smile.

At just 19 years old, Cassidy is delivering her rockiest single yet. “Danger” is a 80s infused rock track with a modern twist that’s sure to please fans of melodic rock who won’t want to miss her on tour in the UK this month.

Bloodride

Finns Bloodride have unleashed a rough video for “Hate of Hatred”, taken from the band’s fourth album Idiocracy, released via Great Dane Records in 2021.

The video for Bloodride’s song “Hate Of Hatred” is about hating hate. A topic that has been relatively difficult to describe in a video. Of course, it’s a somewhat difficult topic anyway. The material was filmed during the covid period, i.e. when we didn’t see each other with the band for more than a year. So because of this, only photos of the band were used in filming. In this way, a band video could be made without the presence of the band – of course, it allowed for a bit rougher material as well.

Scars of the Flesh

Melodic/blackened death metal crew Scars of the Flesh have released a lyric video for “Only I”, the third single from forthcoming album In Darkness Alone. The album is out on November 18th.

Derision Cult

Chicago industrial/metal project, Derision Cult has just unleashed their new single and video, “Bastards Of The World”. The track is off the forthcoming EP, Mercenary Notes Pt. 1.

For the song, Derision Cult ringleader, Dave McAnally tapped into years of experience helping brands create narratives. “It deals with my experiences running campaigns that provoked enragement for a certain audience so another audience pays more attention.” This has become an effective strategy. The messages we receive are attempts to illicit emotional responses.

“Bastards Of The World” was inspired by a specific instance where Dave was approached to help a gun manufacturer infuriate gun control advocates to create a run on guns and ammunition:

“On paper, the concept was very logical because when there are calls to ban weapons, we do see an uptick in sales for guns and ammunition. On principle, I didn’t take the project, but it inspired me to talk about this type of a campaign in a track because these things go on all the time.”
