This week had quite a few more releases than last, which made the decision-making a bit more difficult. It was best, to sum up with a few familiar faces, returns and maybe a few psychedelic grooves. Here are this week’s top five best music videos.
5) Mortillery – “Shapeshifter”
Canadian Thrashers released the new music video for the title track, “Shapeshifter” from their latest effort via Napalm Records. You see the band performing in a secluded area out in the woods as a creature emerges for destruction.
4) Kee Marcello – “Black Hole Star”
Former Europe guitarist Kee Marcello revealed his new music video for “Black Hole Star” off of the new studio album Scaling Up which was released on October 14 under Frontiers Music. The song moves in a traditional hard rock style as the video begins with Marcello and his mates performing on a rooftop with a city skyline in the back.
3) Horisont – “Electrical”
Right before kicking off their first North American tour, Swedish hard rockers Horisont released a new music video “Electrical” off of their upcoming album About Time. The album will be released on February 3rd, 2017 under their new home at Century Media Records. The video brings back a classic psychedelic vibe as it was created by their own bass player, Magnus Delborg.
2) Sixx:A.M. – “We Will Not Go Quietly”
As we are getting closer for Sixx: A.M. to release the new album Vol. 2, Prayers For the Blessed on November 18th via Eleven Seven Music, they decided to reveal a new video for the new song “We Will Not Go Quietly.” The upcoming album is a follow-up of Vol. 1, Prayers For the Damned that was released earlier this year. “We Will Not Go Quietly” is an abrasive tune as the video flutters with flashing live images and continuous movement.
1) Riot V – “Take Me Back”
Riot V is no stranger to metal as it consists of the remaining members of the legendary group, Riot. Back in October of 2014, the debut album under the name Riot V was released entitled Unleash the Fire. It was the first without the late Mark Reale (founding guitarist) who unfortunately passed away in 2012. The band carried on with a new name to keep their legacy and Reale’s prestige. Continuing to honor and celebrate, Riot V released a video “Take Me Back” as a thank you to their fans throughout the years.
