Sleep Of Monsters Posts “Golden Bough” Lyric Video

Today, Sleep of Monsters premieres a lyric video for “Golden Bough.” The track hails from the band’s second album, “Sleep of Monsters II: Poison Garden,” set for international release on June 3rd via Svart Records.

Recorded in an old hilltop villa in Álora, Spain, “Sleep of Monsters II: Poison Garden” sees this unique Finnish band venture into even richer, more dramatic and hauntingly beautiful soundscapes, complete with strings and horns… and hooves. Think of Lee Hazlewood getting drunk with the Abba girls in a metal bar, slurring some of the most spine-chilling (mostly) true tales of human tragedy and the occult ever heard in rock ‘n’ roll, and you’ll arrive at the moss-covered gates of “Poison Garden.” The new album’s track listing is as follows:

1. Poison King
2. Golden Bough
3. The Art of Passau
4. Babes in the Abyss
5. Beyond the Fields We Know
6. The Devil and All His Works
7. Our Dark Mother
8. Foreign Armies East
9. Land of Nod

Powerwolf Streaming Gary Moore Cover “Out In The Fields”

The upcoming Powerwolf album “Blessed & Possessed” (reviewed here) will be released worldwide on July 17th via Napalm Records.

On top of that there’s a ten track bonus tribute album titled “Metallum Nostrum” that features very special cover versions of classic anthems from metal giants including Judas Priest, Savatage, Black Sabbath, and Amon Amarth to name a few.

Today the wolves have released a brand new lyric video for the song “Out In The Fields” which is a cover of the Gary Moore track. Check it out below. Roel Van Helden commented on the song and lyric video:

“Like most of us, I began listening to metal when I was 11 years old. Later I discovered Thin Lizzy, who just like Iron Maiden – had a big influence on me. I still love to spin Gary Moore’s records while having a good glass of wine. Also his blues phases were genius. For ‘Out in the Fields’ we made a few changes, for the musicians under us: The original track is played in 4/4 stroke, but we re-wrote it into 12/8. This way it became more metal. But a good song is functioning in any form.”

The “Metallum Nostrum” disc is available with the 2-CD mediabook & all limited editions of “Blessed And Possessed.”
