New Music Video “To Your Brethren In The Dark” Released By Satyricon

Norway’s Satyricon released the new video clip for “To Your Brethren In The Dark” courtesy of Metal Injection at this location, or even easier – just down in the player below. The song is taken from the band’s latest album “Deep calleth upon Deep,” which was released on September 22nd via Napalm Records.

Speaking about the new video, frontman and band visionary, Satyr tells us, “I wanted ‘To your brethren in the dark’ to be a director’s interpretation of the song, rather than a band performance type of thing. Seeing what we do through the eyes of another artist is always interesting to me and just like the song, the video has become a little bit of a journey on it’s own. ‘To your brethren in the dark’ is definitely one of the flagship songs on the record. It is about emotion, our nature, the spirits, the autumn, the sombre and rainy days, those who we lost and the ones who we have not met yet. You could say it is a tribute to the sorrow in man and to the drama of the nature we surround ourselves with. A song for the dark towers of the past and those who will rise in the future. Pass the torch to your brethren in the dark.”

New Album “Ending Life Slowly” Revealed By Autumns Eyes

At the crossroad between a hallowed holiday and the cusp of a dead cold winter is where you’ll find Autumns Eyes mastermind Daniel Mitchell. After many seasons of seclusion and intermittently hitting the studio, the recording process has finally wrapped up for the new album titled “Ending Life Slowly.”

Mitchell is no stranger to the darker side of creativity, and crafts music free of constraints or label interference. “Ending Life Slowly” strikes a balance between somber reflections on mortality and full-force screaming metal, with cover art to reflect the album’s dreary nature crafted by Indonesian artist Sorrow Grips (Gojira).

Due out on October 31st, “Ending Life Slowly” serves as the first full-length album from Autumns Eyes since the 2012 release of “Please Deceive Me.” Halloween and the death of Fall is a perfect time to be reminded that sometimes life ends far too slowly.

Mitchell had this to say about the impending album release: “Living in New England has always made it easy to draw from the month of October for creative inspiration, with life breathing its flaming colors into all the surrounding trees. Unfortunately, these themes can only be revisited every so often before it becomes repetitive. That’s why I reached into the month of November for inspiration. A time when Fall is still thriving, but where color has faded and the trees are bare as skeletons.

“While a walk through the woods here in October can be a relaxing activity, doing the same in November carries an overwhelming sense of dread. You’re surrounded by death, and the trees no longer sway and breathe with the air. They’re cold, stiff, bare, and knock together like bones breaking in the sky.

“This atmosphere is what fueled the writing process for ‘Ending Life Slowly,’ with death and decay surrounding every element of each track. It’s a cliche topic to write about in heavy metal music, but my approach here was focused more on the immense weight death can hold over one’s shoulders. To sit an truly contemplate what it means for all things to come to an end was a sobering experience to say the least.

“I always look at music as sonic therapy, but this was the one time where music couldn’t offer any kind of solace. It just reminded me that life can either go by too fast, or it can end too slowly.”

Check out the album’s artwork and track listing below, along with a video update from the studio released earlier this summer:

1. Death of October
2. Break the Skin
3. Your Last Day
4. Moments Into Memories
5. The Honest Liars
6. Couldn’t Hold On
7. Far Away From Fading
8. Internal Arson
9. Open Your Eyes, Not Your Wrists
10. Under the Skin of the Sun

My Enemies & I Debuts New Music Video For “Perfect”

Richmond, VA’s metalcore outfit My Enemies & I is streaming its new music video for “Perfect“. It’s from the band’s new Johnny K (Disturbed, Megadeth) produced album, “The Beast Inside“, out November 03rd on Fearless Records.

Says vocalist Jeff Hill of it:

“Perfect‘ is a song about reopening an old wound with a person from the past. The song illustrates how some people only care about themselves and are only out for their own personal gain. They are never to blame in any issue and walk with their head higher than everyone else’s. A friendship or relationship can sometimes be one sided. If you find yourself doing anything and everything to please someone, it’s time to cut the chord. They are trying to shrink you down. Don’t worry about that loss.”

Live Release “He Who Lies Underneath” Announced By Mithridatic, Preview Available

In 2007, blackened death metal dark matter particles aggregated and formed Mithridatic. In 2015, the band unleashed the debut single “The Hunt Is On.” In 2016, the band bursted immense blasts of dark energy with the debut “Miserable Miracle,” followed by a full European irradiation with Nile and Melechesh and countless gigs. Thus, the creation of the new black hole you’re about to discover: “He Who Lies Underneath.” A preview clip – featuring the song “Miserable Miracle” is available as a live video below.

Filmed with multiple cameras and professionally recorded in the hometown of Saint-Etienne, France, “He Who Lies Underneath” is a full concert that will plunge the audience into a whirlwind of a nauseating, oppressing and sickening experience through nine tracks retracing the band’s ten years-long career featuring not only songs from “Miserable Miracle,” but also from “The Hunt Is On” and more.

In a time musicianship reaches unbelievable technical levels and technology helps any band sounding huge on stage, what makes a real difference is the ability for artists to create a real experience for the audience ; an experience that’s often sadly only based on visual gimmicks and an orthodox “Metal” imagery but few are the ones that, out of pure presence and thank to a razor-sharp song-writing exploring personal inner struggles and channeling psychological experiences, are transcending it all through a real live embodiment and create a nearly ritualistic atmosphere that will leave its mark on the listener’s mind.

Mithridatic is definitely one of these few gifted bands and “He Who Lies Underneath” is one of those captivating live experiences. The release will be available on most VOD and audio/video streaming/download platforms on January 19, 2018.

You’re not even ready.

The track listing is:

1. The Supply…
2. …For Terror and the Crowd
3. Miserable Miracle
4. Hunting Fever
5. Dispense the Adulterated
6. Abraxas
7. Hell Compasses Points
8. Oxydized Trigger Sabotage
9. I Will Har
