From acapella, a father and daughter project, to collaborations and everything in between, here are twelve music videos to check out this week.
01) Van Canto – “Falling Down”
German acapella metal outfit have unveiled the video for their new song “Falling Down.” The track is taken from their upcoming album, To The Power of Eight, scheduled to arrive on June 4th via Napalm Records (pre-order here).
The group comments:
“‘Falling Down’ is a Van Canto powerhouse, a composition with powerful vocal riffing, endless harmonies and a dramatic arrangement. The lyrics describe the timeless moment of creativity when you feel a melody entering your brain to then materialize into music. We put our focus on all the details in the vocal arrangements, tying together Sly’s heroic lead voice together with Hagen’s rough power and Inga’s epic smoothness like an eight-knot. ‘Falling Down’ combines Van Canto’s trademarks and brings them to life by a combination of a rock’n’roll stage environment, on- and off-stage visuals and a lot of Power of Eight and more, thanks to all the people involved! It is inspired by all work Robert Naumann has done in all previous videos of Van Canto. Robs, we love you and we miss you.”
02) Puscifer – “Bullet Train to Iowa”
Puscifer have shared a music video for the song “bullet Train to Iowa.” The track is taken from the group’s latest effort, Existential Reckoning.
Maynard James Keenan comments:
“The ‘Bullet Train To Iowa’ video is sort of a bridge between the ‘Money $hot Live At The Mayan Theater’ performance (‘Billy D And The Hall Of Feathered Serpents’) and the ‘Existential Reckoning Live At Arcosanti’ performance. Kind of like what ‘Rogue One’ is to the ‘Star Wars’ films, but without the stormtroopers and snarky robots.”
03) Artillery – “Turn Up the Rage”
Artillery have unleashed a music video for the song “Turn Up The Rage.” The track is taken from their new album, X, which is scheduled to arrive on May 7th via Metal Blade Records (pre-order here) .
