Curezum Releases “A Forest” Music Video

Black metal, forests, and pizza. Three of the most logical things to see in one video, especially one of Curezum – the extreme metal tribute to the Cure which has stirred up delight and controversy in equal measure.

Check out the video for “A Forest” below, which also features Matron Thorn of Ævangelist on guitar. Embrace the grindhouse aesthetic of the video – and beware of the cookie jar. Pre-orders for “A Forest/Siamese Twins” are available via Static Tension Recordings right here.

Wrvth Posts “Forlorn” In-Studio Video

Atmospheric tech death unit Wrvth today issues part two of a live, in-studio video series with “Forlorn,” which comes by way of the band’s self-titled full-length, issued last year by Unique Leader Records.

The black and white performance clip was captured at Fang Studios with Nick Loiacono of FLYTRAPtv. “We feel the songs on our record are best represented in a live context,” said the band in a collective statement. “‘Forlorn’ is especially one of those songs that a raw production lends to the song accordingly, lyrically, and musically.”

Wrvth is currently in the midst of a headlining tour that commenced on August 5th in Bend, Oregon. The journey includes an appearance at Jamfest in Beamsville, Ontario and will run through September 3rd in Sacramento, California.

Benevolent Signs To Spellbind Records, Working On New Album

Kuwait based extreme metal outfit Benevolent has signed with Spellbind Records, and lead vocalist and co-founder, Fadi Sarieddine, states “This is really big for us, we’re really excited about working with Spellbind Records and we feel that this will be our home to fantastic growth across the scene and internationally where we get to perform and share our music with many new fans.”

Hadi Sarieddine, the band’s lead guitarist and co-founder, added “When you’re in a band, especially one that plays metal, in the Middle East you’re really tied down with how much gigging and exposure you get to experience but I feel that this is going to ignite a shift in that stance for us and we seriously cannot wait to get out there, share the stage with other bands from abroad and the region, and just play our songs with audiences across the region and beyond! We’re psyched!”

Benevolent will be performing extensively across the Middle East and North Africa with concert dates to be announced in the very near future. The band is currently working on a single scheduled for release in 2011, along with working on their full length which is rumored to be released in 2012.

Keep up with Benevolent’s updates on the band’s official Facebook page at this location, and if you haven’t downloaded the “Divided” EP yet go ahead and grab your free copy at Bandcamp.
