Spiritbox (Ex-Iwrestledabearonce) Premiere New Music Video “Perennial”

Spiritbox – featuring various members of Iwrestledabearonce fame – premiere a new music video for their song “Perennial“. Dylan Hryciuk directed the video for that track.

Comments frontwoman Courtney LaPlante:

“‘Perennial‘ was written for our friend that has to spend years in and out of the hospital due to his many severe health battles. Our last release really resonated with him and he was there supporting us every step of the way while we developed our music. I am not a very good communicator but I feel like I can express myself better through my songs so I want him to listen to ‘Perennial‘ and know that I appreciate how much work he puts in to stay positive, and that it’s ok to acknowledge the agony he has been through.”

“I hope other people can feel this as well when they hear the song, and interpret it in a way that makes them feel whatever they want, happy or sad, pain is complicated. I just don’t want them to give up.”

Ara Premiere New Song “Cytokine Storm” From Upcoming New Album “Judisprudence”

Wisconsin based, death metal outfit Ara have signed with Lavadome productions for the release of it’s sophomore album “Judisprudence”. The album was recorded at Howl Street Studios and mastered by Leon Macey of death metal powerhouse Mithras. “Jurisprudence” will be released early next year. In the meantime, you can already stream the third track of the album “Cytokine Storm” streaming below:

The band’s guitarist, Jerry Haupa, issued following statement with regards to the revealed track:

“Cytokine Storm represents the most focused attack of the band on the record thematically, while still challenging the listener and the boundaries of the death metal approach in general. The lyrical theme is about how the body self-destructs during the final stages of infection from Ebola, so the music takes on a viral approach as though the listener is bombarded with inhibiting structures, eventually succumbing to fatal illness while paralyzed by confusion and despair.”

Voivod Posts New Song And Video “Iconspiracy” Online

Ahead of their forthcoming new studio album, “The Wake,” Canadian progressive thrash metal legends Voivod has posted a new music video online for the song, “Iconspiracy.” You can check it out below. The song is the third from the album to receive the music video treatment, following “Obsolete Beings” and “Always Moving.” “The Wake” is set to be released through Century Media on September 21st.

Frontman Denis “Snake” Bélanger checked in with the following comment about the clip: “What I really like about Voivod fans is that they are all able to make their own interpretation of the lyrics or the story of our songs. This video is such a good portrait of “Iconspiracy” and the artist pinpoints awesome visuals in regards to the meaning and representation of the story itself. Thanks to Costin, an amazing artist who did really great work for us in the past and still blows my mind every time again. Question everything! Iconspiracy!!!”

Video director Costin Chioreanu added: “ The most difficult task of an illustrator is to work for his all-time favourite bands. Then he becomes extremely exigent with what he creates and wants to get beyond any known limit. Obviously, this type of experiences are priceless by all means at the same time, because everything goes utterly intense and he feels like a starship exploring the Universe at full warp speed and experiencing several amazing unseen worlds per second. “The Wake” is the album of the year 2018 for me and the video I literally built from scratch for “Iconspiracy” follows the song lyrics and the spaces between them. At the same time, both the story and video fight to remain alive while trying to keep up with the infernal dynamics of the song, which represent another musical proof of the Voivod’s genius. Other than that, this video speaks by itself, just like the music, therefore who is prepared to be awaken, will be!”

Nattravnen (Massacre, Wombbath, Etc.) Premiere New Song “Suicidium, The Seductress Of Death”

Nattravnen, featuring vocalist Kam Lee (Massacre) and Jonny Pettersson (Wombbath, Ashcloud, Just Before Dawn, Henry Kane), premiere a new song entitled “Suicidium, The Seductress Of Death”, taken from their upcoming new album, which will be out in stores via Transcending Obscurity Records.

Check out now “Suicidium, The Seductress Of Death” below.

Label Sampler 2018 by Transcending Obscurity Records

Comments vocalist Kam Lee:

“I am very excited for this album. First off it was during the making of The Grotesquery‘s 4th full length album, when Rogga Johansson told me about Jonny, and that he was looking for a vocalist to put lyrics and vocals to some music that he had. Rogga already knew by working with me previously on the three albums for The Grotesquery my ability to be able to put concept albums together with a storyline. And that this was something that possibly Johnny was looking to do with the music he had. Also I knew Jonny’s work from other bands like Wombbath, Ashcloud, Just Before Dawn & Henry Kane, so when I found out that I had a chance and opportunity to work with this great musician I jumped on it. Once I heard the music I knew exactly the tone that this album needed to take and it was perfect with the theme I was working on. As well it was like synchronicity… as if the universe wanted something to happen because I just so happen to be working on my own gothic horror fairy tale at the time and was leaning towards doing something with Scandinavian mythology. Johnny and I got to talking and he told me about this legend that his grandmother used to tell him as a child about the Night Raven. As soon as he told me the name of this mythical creature everything just fell into place. And that’s how everything came to be. The name of the band, the entire concept story, the mythology, everything all based on the Nattravnen.”

Nattravnen‘s music composer Jonny Pettersson adds, “This album have been in the making for a long time. I started working on these songs many years ago, but never felt that I could give them the vocal justice they needed. Rogga Johansson (Paganizer, Down Among the Dead Men and many more) introduced me to Kam who accepted the task of vocal mastery. It’s been an honour to complete the album with Kam, and with once again mighty Transcending Obscurity backing us up, and with label boss Kunal’s pure dedication, I’m positive this is one for the books.”

Line up:

Kam Lee – Vocals and lyrics (ex-Death, ex-Massacre, The Grotesquery)
Jonny Pettersson – All instruments (Heads For The Dead, Wombbath, Henry Kane)
