At The Gates Posts New Music Video “The Mirror Black” Online

Swedish death metal legends At The Gates has released a new music video for the song, “The Mirror Black,” which was released today as a seven inch single and features guest vocals from Rob Miller of Amebix fame. The clip was created by Costin Chioreanu / Twilight13Media, who also is also responsible for the artwork duties of the entire “To Drink From The Night Itself” release. The video can be seen below.

At The Gates vocalist Tomas Lindberg checked in with the following comment :”When we decided that we wanted to release the two Rob Miller tracks on a separate 7″, we felt that ‘The Mirror Black‘ was worthy of its own video. Costin was already excited about the idea, and I explained the basic outlines of the idea of the song. Working with Costin always brings in another dimension to our music and my lyrics; so he did his own interpretation of the main theme of the song. I am super happy with the result, I really think that this is one of the best videos At The Gates have ever done. There are a lot of hidden meanings and other symbolism in this clip, so you can watch it many times and still find new stuff. We as a band are super excited about this release!”

Kuolemanlaakso Releases New Music Video “My Last Words”

A music video for “My Last Words” taken from new Kuolemanlaakso album “M. Laakso – Vol. 1: The Gothic Tapes” is out now (check out our review here). Laakso himself comments:

“‘My Last Words’ is one of the most honest and personal songs that I’ve ever written. It’s basically a pre-written message to my children; what I’d like to tell them them, when my time comes. Perhaps it will bring comfort in the time of grief someday. As long as there are dreams and memories, death is not the end.

“Nature and the symbolism of the biological cycle have always been key issues in the aesthetics of both Kuolemanlaakso and my solo album. This clip is almost meditative in its character. It’s basically what someone might see with closed eyes while listening to the song.”

The video was created by Jukka Uitto, Pete Voutilainen, and Nadi Hammouda. It was shot in Helsinki and Kuopio, amidst Laakso’s childhood scenery.

L’Hiver En Deuil Streaming New Track “As”

Today Terrorizer Magazine offers up a premiere from Belgian black metallers L’Hiver en Deuil.

Titled “As,” the song comes from the band’s first EP “Ter Aarde,” which is set for release via Consouling Agency on November 9th. Check out the track below. The following press release was also issued about the band:

“L’Hiver en Deuil was shaped during the winter of 2009/2010, one of the most unrelenting and severe in years. The atmosphere of winter and the dark beauty of the surroundings of the band’s rehearsal place helped them to give voice to their suppressed feelings through the symbolism of nature, with songs drowning in an aura of introspective black metal, combined with repeated riffs and hypnotic melodies to conjure a melancholic, trance-like state. L’Hiver en Deuil is where and when its members confront themselves with their fears, their deepest frustrations, things that cannot be easily grasped, the perpetual search for what goes beyond existence. The thin line between life and death. Their journey started there.

“In mid 2012, the line-up was complete, now gathering former members from Sarin, Marche Funèbre and The Gates of Argonath. With a stable line-up, L’Hiver en Deuil felt the need to record some new songs and they reached out to Phorgath from Enthroned and Emptiness fame, knowing that his extensive experience in producing dark and unholy music would be the perfect match to their mournful and bleak compositions. So in February/March’13 the band entered the studio to record their first EP ‘Ter Aarde.’

“‘Ter Aarde.’ is foremost a very introspective work, incorporating an array of influences, from traditional black metal to post-hardcore, with the core of this release lying in mid-tempo, trance-inducing melancholic riffs. Although the music definitely stands on its own with a strong identity, parallels can be drawn to such bands as Drudkh, Svarti Loghin,Fen, Agalloch and Forgotten Tomb.”

Zemial Reveals New Single "Dusk" Details

Zemial front man Vorskaath has issued the following update about the band’s new single “Dusk:”

“Lyrical themes continue to lead the listener along the vastness of Sumerian cosmogony and existentialism and the symbolism of the Cthulhu Mythos. Mixing analogue synthesizer soundscapes with dreamy guitar melodies and harmonies this EP signifies Zemial’s music direction toward the mysteries of space and is the direct precursor to the vastness of NYKTA.

“Both Dusk and Nykta will be presented live in their entirety to Greek audiences in September 2011. More details to come.

“Dusk comes in full colour gatefold, with lyrics and is available in two limited vinyl editions. Featuring outstanding fractal art by respected artist and fractal expert Damien Jones, the EP marks a highlight in Zemial’s discography.

“Order your copy from Hells Headbangers or directly through the band by writing to: merchandise (at) turelur.de Previews of Dusk can be heard here on MySpace or you can check out the Zemial page on Last FM here.”
