Puppy Premiere New Song & Music Video “World Stands Still”

Puppy premiere a new music video for their song “World Stands Still“. It’s the latest single to arrive from the group’s new effort “The Goat“, which will see a January 25th release via Spinefarm Records. Puppy drummer Billy Howard helmed the video production.

States Howard:

“Many of our biggest influences as a band are movies, computer games, and music that we loved as pre-pubescent/just-pubescent kids.

We never really got over that kind of immature excitement for the stuff we found cool. Equally though, there’s kind of a loneliness and weirdness to being that age, which is actually probably part of the reason you throw yourself so completely into all the stuff you find cool in the first place.

We think that the Goblin Girl from our new video ‘World Stands Still‘ embodies this juvenile side to our band pretty neatly. We hope you enjoy watching her adventures as much as we enjoyed filming them.”

Accept Posts “Restless And Live” DVD Trailer

The metal icons from Accept will release “Restless And Live” in early 2017. This package will include the entire show Aceept played at Bang Your Head!!! Festival 2015 on Blu-ray/DVD plus two Live CDs with different recordings during the European tour.

“Restless And Live” will be available in stores from January 13th, 2017 via Nuclear Blast. To provide you with a taster of this new release, the band led by axe man Wolf Hoffmann today presents a first trailer. In this clip, Wolf and Accept producer Andy Sneap talk about the set list and new as well as old classics from Accept. Hoffmann comments:

“When you do a live show you obviously have an opener and an ending, and in between you only have a certain amount of songs that you can choose from, because especially at festivals you only get a limited amount of time to play. When we do headline shows we have a little more room to play with and we can pick a few more songs.

“What is interesting to me is, that when you listen to the stuff back to back there doesn’t seem to be any discrepancy between the stuff that we recorded or wrote 30 years ago and our more recent material! And the fans tell me the same thing, it really blends together rather well.”

Nasum Posts Final European Tour Road Report

Nasum is currently embarked on a final farewell European tour, and the band has now checked in with a new road report. Excerpts from the report are available below, or you can find the full thing complete with pictures over at the Nasum website here.

September 28 – Madness In Munich

On the second show out of three in Germany we went to the Backstage complex in Munich. Apparently we’ve been here before, during the long tour with Napalm Death back in 2001. I had gotten this place mixed up with the Feierwerk or possibly Hansa 39 which are two previous venues I’ve been to in Munich. Imagine my surprise when I woke up in what can only be described as an jungle… The entire complex is surrounded by palm trees and other plants and I had no idea where we were.

The complex has a number of halls in different sizes and we played in the “Club” which is one of the smaller ones, if not the smallest one. I believe there were four different things happening at Backstage at the same time so it felt quite weird. Would there be any people coming to our show?

I spent most of the day in pain. My back was aching badly due to unknown reasons. Maybe a combination of a weird sleeping position and a cold that only struck the back. I was feeling it already in Geneva but in Munich it was really bad. Luckily we had a nice backstage area far away from the stage so I could take it easy and take care of some internet business.

We had no extra support band this night, so it was quite an early show. But what a show! The crowd went mental which surprised us a lot. We had expected it to be a slow night, but it was quite the opposite. The small room was filled and we observed people both moshing like maniacs and singing along to the lyrics. Crazy. And when it was time for the encores the general vibe was that we could keep playing forever, so we played seven extra songs which isn’t really the amount we usually play. A great night in Munich.

September 29 – Grindcore chemistry in Slovenia

The first of five Eastern dates which in total includes four completely new countries for Nasum started in Ljubljana, Slovenia. The Gala Hala venue is part of bigger complex just like the Backstage Club the day before, but was located in a completely different surrounding, although that Backstage jungle would have been a nice and not at all unexpected addition. There were a lot of different houses connected via a big yard and everything was covered in graffiti and various art pieces mostly made out of recycled objects. Sort of a squat mixed with a crazy playground. We arrived quite early – or the load in was quite late – so we had a few hours to kill in this environment. I brought out the digital camera and shot some of the stuff I saw there.

In the late afternoon we got access to the venue and could load in and set up our stuff. I was sweating like crazy just by setting up the drums, which was a sort of a premonition that the show would be really hot. After soundcheck and some food I hung out in the bus watching some shit in my laptop and then joined a totally unexpected discussion about drum fill-ins together with Urban and Hannes. That’s an alternative way to warm up before a show.

After Hellcrawler, who were the local support, and Black Breath we went up on the quite small stage and played for the first and last time in Slovenia. As expected it was really hot and we were more or less soak after a few songs. The show was another good one and I felt that we had a real connection within the band on stage. Of course we have that every night, but this is one of the first times that I really thought about it. We know our songs in and out and we know every single little detail leading from one song to another. It’s grindcore chemistry for sure.

Down To Release Four EPs

New Orleans based metal supergroup Down will be releasing four EPs in the future according to guitarist Kirk Windstein. In a recent interview at the Hellfest festival in France, Windstein stated:

“We’re going to do four EPs, and they’ll all be different. We have many elements to our sound, so each one will have its own characteristics. Like, for example, this one we’re writing right now and are about to start recording will be really hard, with heavy Down stuff. Then we’ll have a mellow one, then a doom one – you know, slower and doomy stuff. A little bit of everything.”

As to why the band chose to release four EPs instead of a full album, Kirk explains: “The record industry sucks so bad. Nobody buys anything. We’re trying to do something different, making it cheaper to buy. People want stuff for free! So six songs, its cheaper to buy. Same thing for downloading: it will be cheaper to download. Nobody wants to go to the record store and buy stuff anymore. So we’re just trying to mix it up and do something different. It will be released on physical EP and digitally as well.”
