Host unveil “My Only Escape” video

Posted by on January 18, 2023

 

Host, the new dark wave project from Greg Mackintosh and Nick Holmes have unveiled a video for their latest single, “My Only Escape.” The track is taken from their debut album, IX, out February 24th via Nuclear Blast. 

 

Vocalist Nick Holmes commented:

“Musically, this track has an intentional repetitive element that builds throughout the song, this is also mirrored in the lyric idea, as in the repetition of an everyday life held in such poor regard. The feeling of actually being physically scared, acts as an acceptable relief from day to day drudgery.”

Trivium cover Heaven Shall Burn’s “Implore The Darken Sky”

Posted by on January 18, 2023

 

Trivium have surprised their fans by releasing a cover of Heaven Shall Burn’s “Implore the Darken Sky.” The cover is featured on a split 7” that the group will be selling throughout their European tour

 

Vocalist/guitarist Matthew K. Heafy comments:

“In the early days of Trivium, back when we were discovering the many great genres and flavors of heavy music, I knew about the classic greats, I knew about extreme metal, but never before had I heard what HSB was doing. Heaven Shall Burn’s Whatever It May Take album was my first introduction to their brand of metalcore. This fusion of hardcore ethos and metal sounds blew my mind. ‘Implore the Darken Sky’ is not only my favorite HSB song, but the one that taught me so much about a sound that needed to be injected into Trivium.”

Doom metal outfit Ahab’s new album, The Coral Tombs, arrived this past Friday (13th) via Napalm Records. A video for their latest single, “Mobilis in mobili” was made available to celebrate the release.  

 

Guitarist Christian Hector comments:

“”Mobilis in mobili” is quite a cavernous journey. Musically, it feels like a tune that goes back to the very first AHAB song ‘The Stream’ from 2004, at times, and even further to the early 90s when Death Metal exploded. You will know what I mean when you hear that particular riff in the mid section. ‘Mobilis in mobili’ deservedly ended up in our live set, as it’s a pleasure to play it on stage. The video for the third single taken from our new album, The Coral Tombs, was actually recorded during our first live gig on a ship: the MS Stubnitz in Hamburg, Germany.”

Memoriam drop “Total War” video

Posted by on January 18, 2023

 

 

Memoriam are gearing up for their new album, Rise To Power, out February 3rd via Reaper Entertainment. The group has shared a video for their second single, “Total War.”

 

Karl Willetts (former Bolt Thrower singer) comments:

“’TOTAL WAR.’ This track serves as the second track on the album Rise To Power. Lyrically, it draws reference from what is happening in the world right now, specifically relating to the war in Ukraine. It seems that after writing lyrics about ‘war’ for the past thirty years, they seem more relevant now than they have ever been. Overall, the track is a savage attack on the senses in line with the lyrical content. NOW THE WAR MACHINE IS FED…”
