Nothing More Tackle Disturbing Trend Of Mass Shootings In “Let ‘Em Burn” Video

Nothing More premiere a new music video for their song “Let ‘Em Burn” taken from their latest effort, “The Stories We Tell Ourselves“. The video takes on the disturbing trend of mass shootings in the U.S..

Comments Nothing More:

“Hundreds of people have been killed in mass shootings over the past several years. Almost everyone has chosen the red team or the blue team and we’re stuck in this mode where we fight over political problems instead of human solutions.

More guns or less guns isn’t the question. The real question is, why are we killing each other?”

Adds the band’s frontman Johnny Hawkins:

“The ‘villain and victim’ narrative in media is so seared into our brains that we can’t see straight. The media has become our God and we have become its bitch.

We are blind to human solutions because our emotions have been glued to political problems, and it has paralyzed our progress.

Most of us know that mental health is the cause of mass shootings, yet we are obsessed with talking about the symptoms and gridlocking ourselves in political battles without proper action.

It’s time to find solutions… it’s time to focus on mental health.”

Cripple Bastards Posts New Video “Passi Nel Vuoto” Online

Italian grindcore veterans Cripple Bastards has posted a new music video online for the song, “Passi Nel Vuoto” online. You can check it out below. The song comes from the band’s forthcoming new album, “La Fine Cresce Da Dentro,” which will be released on November 9th through Relapse Records. Spealomg about the song, frontman Giulio The Bastard explained:

“The song ‘Passi Nel Vuoto’ (translated to ‘Steps Into The Void’) is a parallel between the annihilation of the individual lost in the most obtuse massification, induced to waste and sedated in his emotions, and the value of life increasingly low – reduced to being a cog in the consumer machine. The graphics of our new album La Fine Cresce Da Dentro are all unreleased pictures taken from the vaults of a crime magazine that existed from the 1950s through the 90s, accessed from the archives of the criminal police based in Milano, Italy. In making this video we have chosen to alternate similar photos with scenarios of mass stratification and blind conformism. As the lyrics say, ‘What’s left is desolation / but it doesn’t make sense to realize it / it’s the weight of survival: how much you spend / how much you can cost’.”

Me And That Man Posts New Song “Ain’t Much Loving”

Me And That Man will release debut album “Songs Of Love And Death” on March 24th through Cooking Vinyl. Today, the band has releases a new video for the album track “Ain’t Much Loving” – check it out below.

“Ain’t Much Loving” follows the album’s lead single “My Church Is Black,” which launched last month via a Lynchian video still available here.

Me And That Man is fronted by Behemoth founder and vocalist Nergal. The album puts away any pre-conceived ideas about what heavy music should be, with the duo drawing heavily on blues, country and folk to make music as dark as if it was being screamed over shredding guitars. Me And That Man pairs Nergal with British/Polish rock musician John Porter.

“This album is not meant to turn Me and That Man fans into Behemoth fans,” Nergal notes. “If one day they follow, OK. Something like ‘My Church Is Black’ is a strong declaration, a song that naturally invites people from the extreme metal world, and perhaps they’ll want to enter this world too. They might even like it. With Me and That Man, I’m telling simple stories in a simple way, not overloaded with metaphors and hidden meanings. It’s just got to be as natural, organic and stripped down as it can be.”

He further explains, “With Me & That Man, the songs just come out in a very organic way. One would be bluesy, one would be more of a ballad, but put together they all made sense. I need Me & That Man to keep the balance, as the potential of my mother band seems limitless. It gets bigger and bigger, more advanced and more sophisticated… and darker …and blacker. But Me & That Man is at the opposite pole, artistically speaking. With all the best art, once you have it in you, you have to release it, otherwise it becomes intoxicating and dangerous to your own system. This is how I deal with my emotions and my dark feelings and shadows. This is not happy music, but it’s liberating.”

“This is a side-project, but I don’t really know what it’s going to grow into,” Nergal concludes. The idea was just to get this music out to people. There’s no hidden agenda. It is what it is, and if you like it, it’s cool. If you don’t, that’s cool too. This is the battle we’ve already won.”

Plans are underway for a series of live dates in the UK & Europe around the release of the album and across the US in April/May. Stay tuned for further details soon.

Wrvth Posts “Cease To Exist” Music Video

Atmospheric tech death collective Wrvth today issues a confounding video accompaniment to the track “Cease To Exist.” The tune comes by way of the band’s self-titled, full-length release via Unique Leader Records.

Elaborates bassist Taylor Preston of the fiery clip: “We decided to work with Cory Davis of Yellowbox Films again for ‘Cease To Exist,’ as we loved the work he did for our music video ‘Malaise.’ This song is the closing track to our self-titled release and it is fitting as it is also our closer for the year, musically speaking. As far as the creation goes, we wrote every part of the music to fit the lyrics.

“We put all our heads together to form something that we all felt was as fitting as it was meaningful. Even though the song has a seemingly straightforward interpretation, this song means something very different for every person in the band. We didn’t write the song with a mindset of writing something relatable, in fact the events that inspired the song are all very specific and personal to each of us. We gave Cory the lyrics and artistic freedom to form a visual representation of the emotions in this song based on his own interpretation and the feelings the song may incite.”

It is ‘Not for Music,’ it is about light and darkness.”
