Beast In Black Posts New Music Video “Sweet True Lies” Online

Up and coming metallers Beast In Black are currently travelling from arena to arena as special guest to Finnish symphonic metal giants Nightwish. While being on the road all across Europe, the band is happy to finally unleash the first musical taster of their sophomore album entitled ‘From Hell With Love’, which will see the light of day on February 8, 2019 via Nuclear Blast Records. The supporting music video, once again directed by Ville Lipiäinen, can be watched below!

Comments bassist Mate Molnar, “After the huge success of ‘Blind And Frozen’, we wanted to come out with something more interesting and original as the second official music video of the band. I believe ‘Sweet True Lies’ is loveable but also shocking at the same time and I’m sure it will move the hearts of our fans!”

“From Hell With Love” – Track Listing:

01. Cry Out For A Hero
02. From Hell With Love
03. Sweet True Lies
05. Die By The Blade
06. Oceandeep
07. Unlimited Sin
08. True Believer
09. This Is War
10. Heart Of Steel
11. No Surrender
Bonus Tracks (DIGI and 2LP only!)
12. Killed By Death (Motorhead Cover)
13. No Easy Way Out (Robert Tepper Cover)

The album was once again recorded in Anton’s own Sound Request Studio, and true to the motto “Never change a winning team”, the cover artwork was created by Roman Ismailov who worked on »Berserker« as well as the first record Kabanen wrote under the banner of Battle Beast, ‘Steel’ (2012). ‘From Hell With Love’ delivers everything that made fans love Anton’s work in the first place. A slew of fast-paced tracks like the opener ‘Cry Out For A Hero’ and ‘Repentless’, hymnic songs ‘Unlimited Sin’ and ‘This Is War’ and one of the band’s specialties, mid-tempo smashers that only Beast In Black can deliver are back and represented on the new disc by the lead single ‘Sweet True Lies’ and the album’s title track. There’s one thing that all of these tracks have in common – each and every song catches the listener with irresistible melodies, taking residence in the listener’s mind from the moment they hear it.

Badr Vogu Posts Two New Songs

“Wroth” is the forthcoming new full-length from Oakland, California sludge/doom/crust metal faction Badr Vogu. Captured in the spring and summer of 2015 at Earhammer Studios in Oakland by Greg Wilkinson (Pallbearer, Vastum), the eight-track offering will be released on cassette and 2xLP via Tribunal Of The Axe Records.

In advance of the release of “Wroth,” the band today shares two new tracks in the form of “Copernican Theory” and “Narcotically Opaque.” Badr Vogu comments:

“‘Copernican Theory’ is the opening track off of the new album and the first song we wrote collectively with our current lineup. It starts off with a bang rather than with a slow build-up like the opener on our last album, so we thought it was the perfect song to kick things off.

“Lyrically, it deals with human subjectivity and the inherent narcissism embedded within which manifests as viewing yourself as a special, unique being when in all actuality we’re all just carbon-based, avaricious animals trapped on a tiny blue rock close to a dying star in an incomprehensibly vast and expanding universe. Contrary to what your parents and teachers told you, you aren’t special. You aren’t entitled to shit, and neither is anyone else, ourselves included.

“Narcotically Opaque’ is one of the more bluesy songs on the album, but it manages to rage into some heavy death/doom parts which feel like a blunt kick to the face. The whole song is very emotionally charged and that distraught pathos bleeds through in the riffs, crushing lead, and tortured vocals.

“The lyrics deal with watching a loved one existentially fade away via drugs and escapism in order to avoid facing trauma that has indelibly altered them – with the admission that you’re guilty of the same mental escapism. Whether its drugs, alcohol, religion, or television, everyone alters their mindset to avoid facing reality, but sometimes people lose sight of not only themselves, but reality itself in the process.”
