New Video Clip “Enigma” Issued By Salems Lott

Hollywood-based shock rock/metal act Salems Lott has been making a name on the Sunset Strip since its inception in 2013, selling out venues such as House of Blues, The Whisky A Go Go, The Roxy and Viper Room countless times. Performing a heavy speed metal sound mixed with shocking theatrics and an even more surprising look, the band has amassed fans from here to Japan with their antics and sound.

With the recent release of part one of the new two-part album series “Mask Of Morality,” the band delves into socially-conscious themes on individualism, values, morality and current politics. One of the more eye-opening tracks on the album, entitled “Enigma,” focuses on freedom of speech on both sides of the societal coin.

The band issued a brand new music video for “Enigma,” which was directed by Ian Moore and produced by UWOWI. The video features custom anime-style animation depicting the band in a dystopian society whose people are on the verge of battle with one another. The battle stems from the dissolving of individualism and a hyper-focus on equality. Watch it in the player below.

Lead guitarist Jett Black says, “The anime portion portrays a hypothetical fictional future in which the ideology of equality attains complete dominance. Wealth, prosperity, individualism are ostracized and violently subdued. Conversely, equality and collectivism are promoted to its utter extreme. These two opposing views inevitably battle it out. Throughout the video the band symbolizes the lost archetype of yang – order – the father and all of the archetypal elements embodied. In contrast, the authoritative figures of the future and the violent activists of the modern day, embody the extreme archetype of yin – chaos – the overbearing mother.”

Black adds, “Freedom of speech is the mechanism in which a healthy society remains balanced and not swayed by either extreme. In the video, we see the signs of an unbalanced extreme being pushed forward through violent suppression of free speech (opposing views). This is something we are seeing today more commonly and would ultimately lead to a Marxist ‘utopian’ future as the one depicted in the anime. Hence the title “Enigma” (other than censorship reasons): The nature of an ideology that is deeply damaging/authoritative but masquerades under the innocent good intentioned guise of compassion (while any opposing view is vilified), which makes it so mysterious, ambiguous and hard to identify as the problem. The shadowy figure silencing individuals through force and its extended intimidation.”

Grave Pleasures Signs Deal With Century Media

Century Media Records is proud to announce the signing of the apocalyptic post-punk band Grave Pleasures. The group just finished recording second studio album, “Motherblood,” at Orgone Studios in the UK (Ghost, Paradise Lost, Ulver).

This upcoming album has been scheduled to a worldwide release for late September/early October 2017 via Century Media Records worldwide. Risen from the ashes of Beastmilk, Grave Pleasures features the writing talents of Mat McNerney (Hexvessel, Beastmilk, Code, DHG) and Juho Vanhanen (Oranssi Pazuzu, Atomikylä). “Motherblood” features fresh artwork by Finnish artist Tekla Vály.

Mat McNerney comments on the record deal signing: “Jens came out to see our show in Sweden at the end of last year and enjoyed it so much he made it clear that he wanted to work with us. For me that’s the greatest way to work with a label, to hang out with the people involved, to be friends and to enjoy good music together. That way it’s much more than a business relationship to us. It becomes part of the experience of why we do this. It’s very comforting to know that we will have the best, most hard-working and friendliest team working on our record. We’re proud to be a part of their family with Grave Pleasures.”

Century Media’s A&R Jens Prueter says: “It’s a pleasure to welcome Grave Pleasures on Century Media. There are not too many artists who have enough talent and visions for being involved in very different bands such as Hexvessel, Oranssi Pazuzu and Grave Pleasures. And it’s always great to work with a group of friends and like-minded spirits. Thanks to the entire band and their manager Andy Farrow!”

Mat McNerney further comments on the albums concept and music: “Like the great sacrament of ancient times that was the blood sacrifice of the mother, we too have laid down our most holy flesh at your feet. This record, which is a bold re-definition of death-rock and our totemic challenge to our pretenders, shall be our most grand and sordid testament. If you have never danced with the skeletons, then this album is your gateway drug to all the nihilistic pleasures of the grave. Apocalyptic post-punk never sounded so desperately bleak and wild yet never grinned so maniacally and writhed so fervently with tongues that whip the tombs. The Kali figure of our cover is the eternal icon of nuclear fear. She presides over the religion of an apocalyptic future. A desolate future we proudly celebrate with caustic music of the most furious punk. Come imbibe and wash your mind in our Motherblood. We’re dancing in the lion’s mouth. The elevator only goes down.”
