Samael Posts New Video, “Rite Of Renewal” Online

Swiss extreme metal legends Samael (whose frontman Vorph was recently interviewed here,) has posted a new video online for the song, “Rite Of Renewal.” Speaking about the video, the band stated:

“This is the first song from ‘Hegemony’ that we presented live and it became an instant classic. The video was shot in Les Docks in Lausanne during the first show that followed the release of ‘Hegemony,’ it was latter edited by Sergey Ulyanov who previously worked on other visuals for us. The song itself is a mid/up tempo track that shows a more technical side of our music. The dynamic is kept by altering fast and dense parts with open and heavy ones until the grand final with super heavy riffs and apocalyptic keyboard parts. What better title for a song than ‘Rite of Renewal’ to start a new year? 2018 here we go!”

Anthrax To Release New DVD, “Kings Among Scotland”

Multi-Grammy-nominated thrash icons Anthrax will see “Kings Among Scotland,” the band’s long-awaited live-in-concert DVD, arrive in stores and online on April 27, 2018 (Megaforce). Captured last February 15 at the band’s sold-out concert at Glasgow’s historic venue Barrowland Ballroom, the two-hour “Kings Among Scotland” incorporates the band’s entire live show along with interviews, behind-the-scenes footage and other B-roll shot on the band’s tour bus, backstage, in hotels and elsewhere. The DVD will also include a “gear rundown” from each of the band members. “Kings Among Scotland” can be pre-ordered starting today; log on to Anthrax.com for all purchasing information.

“Playing for our friends at the Barrowlands has always been very special,” said Anthrax’s Frank Bello. “We all know we’re going to get together and have an insanely great time, and we think that incredible interaction and energy really comes through on this video.”

With packaging art created by Steve Thompson (Slayer, Motorhead, Iron Maiden), the DVD’s concert is presented in two parts. For part one, Anthrax performed the “favorites” that had been voted on pre-show by the band’s fans and includes gems like “Madhouse,” “Be All, End All,” “Breathing Lightning,” and “A.I.R.” The band augmented the stage production for part two, with ramps and staircases and other production values while they tore into their classic 1987 album Among The Living, performing “Caught In A Mosh,” “I Am the Law,” “Indians,” “Eflinikufesin (N.F.L.),” and more.

“It was pretty a intense show,” added guitarist Scott Ian, “especially when the crowd was so insane, the floor actually started moving up and down.”

“It was a challenge for all of us to play ‘Among The Living’ live,” admits Charlie Benante. “We’ve played a number of that album’s songs in our shows over the years, but not all of them, and playing a song in a recording studio is not the same as playing it live on stage. So we put in a lot of time to get all of the tracks down perfectly. And I’ll tell you, after we finished that set, as arduous as it was, we all felt a sense of exhiliration, like we could go out and do it again.”

“Kings Among Scotland” was produced, directed, filmed and edited for Film24Productions by Paul M. Green (Opeth, The Damned, The Levellers), with the sound mixed by Anthrax studio producer Jay Ruston. For the filming, Green utilized 17 cameras, including a crane and several mobile and stationery Go-Pros.

The release of “Kings Among Scotland” will be preceded by Anthrax’s North American co-headline tour with Killswitch Engage – “KillThrax 2018” – set to kick off January 25 in Montreal. All dates are below.

Cattle Decapitation Premieres European Tour Documentary

Cattle Decapitation has shared a new documentary filmed during the band’s European touring this past summer. Guitarist Josh Elmore had the following to say of it:

“For several years now, fans have been asking the band to release a video chronicle with live performance footage and enhanced or ‘behind the scenes’ documentation. During a recent European run, our friend Paul McGuire of Obscenery Films traveled with the band and captured glimpses of what day-to-day life on the road is like for Cattle Decapitation and spoke with the members as they reflected on years of touring and what their future holds. The result is an entertaining, humorous and informative documentary that shows the band as a live entity and also what goes on during their down time on tour; play-throughs, interviews, concert chaos, Euro-tourism and more. We hope you enjoy it!”
