This week flew here we are celebrating Cinco de Mayo on a Friday with the new Alestorm video, “Mexico.” We are tempted to share this with their soon-to-be touring buddies GWAR at this year’s Warped Tour but, they might get confused again thinking we are sharing the new Halestorm video. At least we are leaving Linkin Park’s new video for “Good Goodbye” alone, for now. Moving forward, this week we already discussed Motionless In White’s new album Graveyard Shift, listened to a new Dead Cross song, saw Mac Sabbath moving around with a “Pair-a-buns,” and watched Mutoid Man’s new video. While we have seen quite a bit including the unfortunate news that Mötley Crüe are not reuniting nor will we most likely be seeing a Led Zeppelin reunion, there were quite a few music videos that released, and here are this week’s best.
5) AFI, “Hidden Knives”
AFI released their overall tenth studio album earlier this year and this week they unveiled the video for the song “Hidden Knives.” The self-titled record known as The Blood Album marks another successful run for them as they gear up for a tour.
4 ) Warrant, “Louder Harder Faster”
We are one week away until Warrant releases Louder Harder Faster next Friday (12) via Frontiers. To celebrate the new album, the band unveiled a video for the title track.
3) Bret Michaels, “Jorja Bleu”
Bret Michaels released an emotional video for his new single “Jorja Bleu.” This song is guaranteed to make anyone cry as it is a personal tune about the relationship between him and his youngest daughter.
2) Bill & Phil, “Dirty Eye”
Earlier this year Phil Anselmo teamed up with horror icon Bill Moseley to form a new music project entitled Bill & Phil and released their debut album Songs of Darkness and Despair via Housecore Records. This week they unleashed a video for the song “Dirty Eye.”
1) Igorrr “Opus Brain”
It’s safe to assume, every video from Igorrr will blow your mind. The video for their song “Opus Brain” is no different and we can’t wait until Savage Sinusoid releases on June 16th via Metal Blade Records.
Bonus 1: Tengger Cavalry, “Ashley”
Tengger Cavalry’s new album Die On My Ride releases on June 2nd via M-Theory Audio. This week they premiered a lyric video for probably their least metal songs entitled “Ashley.”
Bonus 2: Ayreon, “Run! Apocalypse! Run!”
Last Friday on April 28th, Aryeon’s The Source released and it’s probably the strongest album yet thanks to mastermind Arjen Lucassen. This week he shared the lyric video for one of the best songs from the 90-minute double album, “Run! Apocalypse! Run!”
