Beak Posts “Souls In Streams” Music Video

Chicago post-metal quartet Beak re-awakens (following 2012 debut EP “Eyrie” and 2014 full-length “Let Time Begin”) with a new video for the song “Souls In Streams.” Singer/guitar player Jon Slusher comments:

“Our follow-up single from our first full-length, ‘Let Time Begin,’ ‘Souls In Streams’ lyrically deals with the moment just before an envious soul enters the material world; the dead looking in on the living with contempt before leaping into the fray, observing the cycle of matter taking ultimate form and then disintegrating back to nothingness.

“In the video, we see an antagonist as an abettor of entropy, procuring chaos and nudging along the next universal cycle by burning down his own milieu. The video uses ultra slow-motion footage of combustion and projections of the vocalist’s face back onto himself.”

New Music Video “Edge Of Tomorrow” Issued By Sunstorm

Sunstorm – featuring ex-Rainbow vocalist Joe Lynn Turner – issued a music video for the new track “Edge of Tomorrow.” The song is the title track from the fourth studio release due out on May 13th via Frontiers Records srl.

For the album, Turner turned to producer and songwriter Alessandro Del Vecchio (Hardline, Edge of Forever) to come up with some new songs. Del Vecchio joined forces with Simone Mularoni, guitar player and producer of Italian prog metallers DGM. Together they developed songs, which were exactly what Joe wanted, so it was a natural process to move forward and record another Sunstorm album. As usual, other songwriters, such as Soren Kronqvist and Daniel Palmqvist completed the array of individuals involved.

The track list for “Edge of Tomorrow” is:

1. Don’t Walk Away From A Goodbye
2. Edge Of Tomorrow
3. Nothing Left To Say
4. Heart Of The Storm
5. The Sound Of Goodbye
6. The Darkness Of This Dawn
7. You Hold Me Down
8. Angel Eyes
9. Everything You’ve Got
10. Tangled In Blue
11. Burning Fire
