Former Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider has posted a new music video online for the song, “Lies Are A Business.” You can check it out below. The song is the sixth from his “For The Love Of Metal” to receive the music video treatment. Speaking about the song, Snider stated:

“The socio-political message of ‘Lies Are A Business’ is more important at this moment in time than ever before. The movement toward more controlling, all-powerful governments continues to grow and the current nightmarish situation in Venezuela is emblematic of the direction our world is sadly heading in.

Nightrage Posts New Single “The Damned” Online

Nightrage is back with their second single, “The Damned”, from their upcoming album “Wolf To Man” where the band invites us to a mesmerizing melodic musical journey, telling the truthful story that guides us all the way to the inevitable demise of mankind. The music delivers a delicate and well-balanced blend between brutality and melody, and also an intricate mix of thrashing riffs, airy instrumentals and hooking choruses to bang your fists to. “The Damned” will be released February 1st via Despotz Records.

“Humans have given up on living for real and now just live for next cheap thrill not giving a shit how to make it to the next day. It’s more important to have many “likes” on social media then it is to take care of or interact with the ones living around you. We and our bodies are just empty shells now losing the last of our damned souls to the cheap thrill of fake life online. It’s our own fault. Hate us and blame us. We are the damned!” – Nightrage

This relentless story of extinction is told with as much aggression as there is intriguing and mesmerizing melodies. Memorable hooks and some of the catchiest choruses that metal has seen in decades, does nothing to compromise the brutality and honesty that Nightrage is known for.

Satyricon Hope To Finish Covers Album Sometime In The Near Future

Satyricon hope to sometime finish work on their covers effort. Says Sigurd “Satyr” Wongraven of the album:

“That is something that we did do quite a lot of work with, but we had to shelve it because ‘Deep Calleth Upon Deep‘ took all of our attention. In general, we would like to pick up on that again. I don’t know when that will happen, because we have to really want to do it — we can’t just do it because it’s something that we didn’t finish; we have to finish it because we want to finish it.

When we left it on the shelf, it was because, even though we were enjoying it, it took a lot of time and it took time away from the [‘Deep Calleth Upon Deep‘] album, which we thought was a more important project. So when you do a project like a covers album, it has to be because there is space for it in your life right now. But once we get there, yeah, it’s possible.”

Asked about what kind of material Satyricon plan to cover, he offers:

“We’ve been doing songs from musical genres that have been important to us that do not necessarily relate to black metal only. So we’ve been jamming covers from New Wave Of British Heavy Metal genre, we’ve been jamming folk music, we’ve done punk rock, ’70s hard rock… That was the idea – that we were gonna work on things that have been influential to our careers, but not black metal.”

Ghost Key Premieres New Song “Indecision” From Upcoming New Album “If I Don’t Make It”

Peoria hardcore/metal outfit Ghost Key premieres a new song entitled “Indecision”, taken from the upcoming new album “If I Don’t Make It”, which will be out in stores on February 17th via InVogue Records.

Check out now “Indecision” below.

Says vocalist Austin O’Brien of the track:

“Oftentimes trying to balance life on the road and life at home can feel like a death sentence. Just before recording our record last year I was struggling internally trying to decide if this was the life I wanted to lead. One thing I reminded myself of the whole time though was that I believe I have something to say and that’s more important to me than anything, and so I wrote ‘Indecision.'”

The Safety Fire Parts With Bass Player Lori Peri

Bassist Lori Peri has checked in with the following announcement about parting ways with The Safety Fire:

“Hi everyone, Lori here, it is with an extremely heavy heart that I announce that I have left The Safety Fire. Today marks 12 years since The Safety Fire played its first ever show (back then we were called Omega Child…) and I would have never thought all those years ago that we would go on to release two albums and play hundreds of shows to tens of thousands of people across the world.

“What’s more important than any of that though, is how lucky I am to have met so many amazing people, some who I will call friends for the rest of my life. This band was started through friendship and that is what I am lucky to take away from it.

“To our fans, I thank each and every one of you for making any of this possible. Without you guys coming to shows or buying merch none of this could have been possible. It has been the most amazing experience of my life, but everything must come to an end, and this was the right time for me to take a different path. I wish the rest of the boys in TSF the best of luck and I can’t wait to hear what they have in store for their next record.”

U.S. Christmas Streaming Entire New "The Valley Path" Album

AOL Music is currently hosting a U.S. Christmas listening party. You can check out “The Valley Path” in its entirety at this location. The latest full-length from the Appalachian act came out yesterday via Neurot Recordings. The follow-up to 2010’s “Run Thick In The Night” consists of one, near 40-minute mammoth track.

Guitarist/vocalist/wordsmith Nate Hall also previously commented on the offering: “When the idea for The Valley Path was imagined, all involved agreed it was true and went forward. Forward in thought, forward in vision, forward in action. We achieved what we wanted to achieve, and whatever is said about The Valley Path, it will stand. USX has played more gigs than I can remember, from Marion to Prague, Detroit, Austria, Memphis and Switzerland. Dirt floors and Masonic temples, churches and ghettos, wilderness and cities. To dozens and hundreds – occasionally thousands. We have recorded our songs, projected our collective visions. We have realized all that we have imagined.

“At this point, we have nothing to prove. We’ve been under the gun many times, and whatever anyone might think about us, we’ve never flinched. Never compromised. When things are good – and they usually are, being in this band is a dream. But we can’t entirely escape reality. Fuse boxes blow, power fails, instruments break, people leave. We vomit in parking lots and go play inside. We sleep sitting up and wake up sore. Or we sleep in places most people would not willfully enter. We are hungry and miss home. We go on, and we are thankful because we have songs. And when we write our songs become a part of us, our center. Our home. A song does not have to be a part of a collection. It is more important for music to take the path it chooses, and an artist must be willing to let this happen. The Valley Path is one song. And a song is a thing that changes.”
