Karkaos Unleash New Music Video “Tyrants”

Montreal’s melodic death metal act Karkaos is proud to unleash their new music video “Tyrants” off their latest offering “Children of The Void” featuring new vocalist Viky Boyer, drummer Justine Ethier (Blackguard) and lead guitarist Samael Pelletier along with collaborations with guest artists Lindsay Schoolcraft (Cradle of Filth) and Morgan Lander (Kittie).

The bands comments:

“Karkaos is extremely proud to release its new video for the song ‘’Tyrants’’. This new video crafted by JP Charlebois, known for his work with Ion Dissonance and Slaves On Dope, is the perfect visual vessel to bring this song to your screen by being as brutal, relentless and intricate as the song itself.

We felt that Tyrants was the perfect song to give a second and different look to Children Of The Void. Its powerful meaning can easily be applied to our world and the weird times we all seem to be going through. We need to remember that we will always be stronger united than divided and this song is a testament to people taking the lead when our leaders couldn’t. Make sure to watch it and share it with your friends and pick up a copy of the album or some merch if you enjoyed it.”

Slaves Fired By Artery Recordings Following Various Allegations Made Against Jonny Craig

In the wake of allegations made against Slaves singer Jonny Craig, the band have been fired by their label, Artery Recordings. The label had just announced a planned January 12th release date for the band’s new outing “Beautiful Death“. It appears that growing pressure from several girls accusing Jonny Craig of diverse disturbing behaviour (see those allegations here) appear to have made them decide to drop the group.

Today the label issued the below brief statement:

Artery Recordings has decided to part ways with Slaves.

Artery Recordings Sold to Warner Bros. Records – Entire Staff Has Been Let Go

Warner Bros. Records has acquired Artery Recordings. In a statement former president Shan Dan Horan confirms the news, which saw the entire staff of the label let go:

“To address the rumors, yes, Artery has been sold to Warner. I can’t disclose too much about the deal, but building up this company to a million record sales in just five years is a tremendous accomplishment for the fans, our artists and the team. I’m humbled and appreciate each and every band I’ve ever had the honor of developing at Artery Recordings. As we hand over the keys to Warner, I’m not quite sure their plans for the label or catalog, but I hope they keep the legacy alive. With new Slaves and Capture albums on the horizon, I’m sure the fans will be ecstatic.”

In the past Artery Recordings’ output included releases from Attila, Chelsea Grin, Kublai Khan and various others. Vents guitarist Jacob Harmond of Chelsea Grin, who put out 3 albums through the label, on the matter via Twitter:

Lol. So fucking wack. That label would be nothing without CG and Attila, and we don’t get SHIT for royalities. Bum ass shit ?????? https://t.co/ghQ17sXLRF

He came to Montreal prepared and later down his parts in three takes. A true pro. We bonded over our love of comic books and Public Enemy, and he came back in July for the Montreal Comicon, so we shot the video for the song while he was here. We can’t wait for the world to hear what we created!”
