Racetraitor Debut “BLK XMAS” From Upcoming New Album “2042”

Good Fight Music will be releasing a new album from Racetraitor entitled “2042” on October 12th. An official music video for the first single, “BLK XMAS“, is streaming now below.

Comments frontman Mani Mostofi :

“‘BLK XMAS‘ is really about how absurd it is that people, like the Fox News crowd, try to insist that Jesus or even fictional characters like Santa Clause are white. On one hand it is totally absurd and laughable but on the other hand, it goes hand and glove with the type of racist and xenophobic sense of cultural purity that gives rise to something like Trump.

Whether it is ‘Fear of a Black Planet’ or ‘Fear of a Spanish speaking America,’ it’s all propaganda designed to get white people to follow a political line that barely benefits most of them beyond a false sense of superiority.”

He continues:

“The name of the record refers to the date the US is predicted to become a majority-minority country. ‘2042‘ explores different sides of the racist fear and the far right attack on the concept of a majority-minority America. It hits on everything from Trump, the far right media, to xenophobia and Islamophobia.”

Behemoth Frontman Adam “Nergal” Darski Explains Latest Video, “God = Dog”

In a recent interview with Headbanger’s Lifestyle at the Alcatraz Festival in Belgium, Behemoth frontman Adam “Nergal” Darski commented on the band’s latest video, “God = Dog” and explained some of the philosophy behind the song. You can watch the full interview below, along with some transcriptions which read as follows:

“Well, it’s a very complex process, because it started with us making this photo session that was very religious-inspired — like religious topics, classic paintings from Caravaggio, Memling and others. We are actors in this… Basically, the whole booklet looks like that — it’s all paintings, but they are reinterpreted by us. Pretty literal, so if I’m a crucified Jesus, I’m a crucified Jesus; I’m not Jesus with a dick out. It’s not obnoxious in any way — it’s very literal, it’s very direct. And I think it’s beautiful; it’s aesthetically really stunning. Then we brought elements of that to that video, and we made it what it is.”

Nergal elaborated further: “‘God = Dog’ is… There’s some controversy about the title, but what can I say? From simple… Just inverse ‘god’ and it gives you ‘dog,’ and that’s the most simplest way to explain the title, but, obviously, it goes deeper than this. It refers to Aleister Crowley’s philosophy, and there’s a quote from Book Of The Law which goes like that: ‘Is a God to live in a dog? No! But the highest are of us.’ And that’s a part of it — it’s a section of the song. And then again, go into the lyrics, make up your mind and build your own world there, because I don’t wanna fucking spoil it.”

Behemoth Reveals New Album, “I Loved You At Your Darkest” Details

“It doesn’t get more blasphemous than this,” declares Behemoth mastermind Nergal, about the band’s upcoming album, “I Loved You At Your Darkest” – due out October 5th via Metal Blade Records (North America) / Nuclear Blast (Europe). While it certainly seems an unlikely title for a black metal band, its origin might surprise fans even more than the words themselves.

“It’s a verse from the Bible,” Nergal reveals. “It’s actually a quote from Jesus Christ himself. For Behemoth to use it as the basis of our record, it’s sacrilege to the extreme.”

A crushing salvo of black metal majesty replete with hellish riffs, thundering drum cannonades and soaring liturgical choirs reminiscent of classic horror cinema, I Loved You At Your Darkest is the group’s most dynamic record yet: extreme and radical on one hand, but also more rock-oriented than any other Behemoth release.

Produced by the band themselves, with drum co-production by Daniel Bergstrand (Meshuggah, In Flames), mixing by Matt Hyde (Slayer, Children Of Bodom) mastering by Tom Baker (Nine Inch Nails, Marilyn Manson), and a 17-piece Polish orchestra arranged by Jan Stoklosa.

The following formats are available in North America, along with an exclusive t-shirt:

– jewelcase CD
– digibook CD (hardcover digibook, 40 page booklet)
– baltic amber vinyl (limited to 600 copies)
– opaque white w/ gold splatter vinyl (Metal Blade Records exclusive – limited to 300 copies)

Wisdom In Chains Premiere New Song “Already Dead”

Wisdom In Chains premiere another new song “Already Dead“ streaming below. The track features a guest turn from Matt Henson of Noi!se. A July 20th release date has been scheduled for the band’s new effort “Nothing In Nature Respects Weakness“.

Wisdom In Chains’ frontman Mad Joe Black comments:

“…Written from the perspective of Jesus (assuming he is real). I was imagining that Jesus is a real man with magic powers. What would he think about humanity after his shitty experience on earth? I would think that he’s pretty disgusted with people begging him for favors all day and crying about their problems. I would think that he probably wants everyone to shut up and leave him alone.”

Eyes Of The Sun launches video for album track, “Slavery of Another Name”, online

– March 12th, 2018 –

On March 16th, Brooklyn’s Eyes Of The Sun will release their debut album, Chapter I, via Blacklight Media Records. Originally self-released in 2013, Chapter I blends ambient and moody guitars with bouts of double bass driven aggression. This is sludgy doom with an angry edge, and as vocalist/bassist Jeff Blanchard describes: “‘Chapter I‘ is all about the demise and destruction we do to our planet and to ourselves.”

To preview Chapter I, the video for the album track “Slavery of Another Name” (directed by Candiria‘s John LaMacchia) can be viewed at: youtube.com/watch?v=2tupK5a2tV0. “Walks of Life” and “My War” can also be streamed at: blacklightmediarecords.com/eyesofthesun – where the record can be pre-ordered digitally and on CD.

Chapter I track-listing:
1. My War
2. When It Dies
3. Walks of Life
4. Choke
5. End of Origin
6. Nineteen
7. Sound the Horns
8. Slavery of Another Name

Eyes Of The Sun was conceived in early 2007 by bassist/vocalist Jeff Blanchard. Long-time friend Miguel De Jesus Jr. joined the ranks with Jeff a few months later on guitar. Within a few years, and after a couple of past members on second guitar and drums, Chris O’Neil joined as the permanent drummer. As a trio, they performed countless shows over the past 10 years, delivering their unique brand of doom metal – which leaves listeners with a range of emotions, that the band themselves then experience and extract from. The band explains: “It is known throughout the laws of science and nature that the sun creates and sustains life…Now it stands witness to the atrocities, depletion and vile consumption manifested by mankind, which it originally sustained life for. In our way, we portray what is seen through the Eyes Of The Sun.”
