Haunted Premiere New Music Video For “Mourning Sun”

Last friday the international doom promises HAUNTED unleashed their new studio album, “Dayburner” via Twin Earth Records.

In celebration of the album release, the band revealed the video of the second single ‘Mourning Sun’ streaming below:

Cristina Chimirri, vocalist, tells about the song:

“When I wrote the lyrics of Mourning Sun, I thought about the “feeling of Death” which sometimes comes over us inexplicably. It’s a kind of call to the other side, that a lot of people live like a halluciation in a dream. Then there’s a will to generate the nightmare, the darkness, the night. Aim to the sun and turn it off.”

The drummer Dario Casabona adds: “The ‘incipit’ of a journey that only lasts a day, to the dark.”

The creation of the video has been entrusted to the Canadian artist, resident of Glasgow, Teresa Elizabeth Lobos.

Shadow Woods Metal Fest Announces Date & Venue Changes

The 2018 edition of Shadow Woods Metal Fest (aka Shadow Woods IV) had hoped to debut this year’s fest in a new location in Virginia, but it was not to be. The festival will return to the original Maryland location, Camp Hidden Valley. Due to changes in dates and venue, changes to the festival line-up had to be made.

Shadow Woods IV will now be held Sept 13-15, 2018 at Camp Hidden Valley (located at 4722 Mellow Rd. White Hall, MD) so that the fest could be presented in the manner that attendees have come to expect. All previously issued tickets will be honored for the new dates. Refunds will be given upon request by emailing Shadow.Woods.LLC@gmail.com.

Here’s what’s new: UADA and Panzerfaust will no longer be able to play the fest; they will play the post-fest show on September 22 at The WindUp Space in Baltimore, along with Imperial Trimphant and two past fest favorites Night Raids and Dark Water Transit. Tombs will also not be able to play the fest and were not able to play a rescheduled event.

The remainder of the Shadow Woods IV lineup remains remarkably unchanged, and three new bands have been added. As in previous years, Camp Hidden Valley will feature three alternating stages, this time it will be Woodland, Pavilion and Hall.

At The Gates Posts New Video, “Daggers Of Black Haze” Online

Swedish melodic death metal revolutionaries At The Gates has posted a new music video online for the song, “Daggers Of Black Haze.” You can check it out below. The song comes from the group’s forthcoming new studio album, “To Drink From The Night Itself,” which will be released on May 18th through Century Media.

At The Gates frontman Tomas Lindberg commented: “‘Daggers Of Black Haze’represents the more progressive side of the new record. It has a lot of reference-points to our early back catalogue, both style wise, and the emotional setting. It is desperate and urgent, but still melancholic and epic. It is conceptually one of the cornerstones of the album. Driving home the point of the need for a war on apathy and the populistic forces that takes advantage of it. This is a fight against the abyss. A beacon for the importance of real art, real forms of expression, and importance of our understanding of our mutual cultural history. The video was filmed by Costin Chioreanu once again, and it is full of symbolism and heavy on the conceptual side. Costin displays the war for art and the importance of standing up to the oppressive powers and paradigms with his film. It is beautiful, striking, melancholic and I am very happy to see his vision of my concept.”

Video director Costin Chioreanu added: “Being aware of the heavy topic in this song I realized that making a video for it represents a mandatory mission for the art, in general. Speaking today of the way how the ruling class guided the evolution in art and the perception upon it, the weight of the history, which is deeply buried in the artifacts’ structures and ideologies, I take this song and the means of illustrating it as a pure and genuine artistic attitude. In the course of time, an imposed perception projected through the manipulation of the art by those holding the power, took the shape of an idol in the viewers’ eyes, it became their main light, the source of the imaginary, artistic beliefs and patterns. The presence of the main character depicted on the newest At The Gates cover and artwork – Alcyoneus, the oldest hero among the giant warriors – is here as well. His bust was rebuilt for this video, but it got a new face. Now his mouth is closed and therefore, he is reduced to silence due to the new paradigms and the oppression’s influence in art. Yet, this character continues to defy the primitive human nature. The snake’s symbol and the eternal temptation offered by the bestial side of the self are also present here, and they work hand in hand with the new Alcyoneus’ image. The video goes fast through different moments in the history, including the perception of art and human nature, and it employs a heavy, almost funeral type of visual tone. This time I have also decided to base all my work on a pretty sharp type of image, as sharp as the blade of the daggers. Regarding imagery, there is darkness, heaviness, hate and anger, which accede to death, primordial co-habitation and they are all enshroud with an almost political type of solemnity. The revolutionary spirit emerges through the mere existence of this video per se. At some points, short scenes depicting nature come as an invitation to a philosophic reflection on the monumental character of the art required by politics. This is how I felt this song, its lyrics and all the explanations provided by Tomas for this particular tune.”
