Canadian metal act Auras has debuted an all new music video today for the track “Spiral” – check it out below. The band collaborated with producer Ray Ligaya and videographer Andrew Paiano for the project

“’Spiral’ is rooted in a melodic theme, yet constantly flows in and out of sporadic aggression similar in nature to our previous releases,” says drummer Nathan Bulla.

This is the second video the band has released off latest LP “Heliospectrum” that came out late last year. Bulla goes on to say, “The visualization reflects a struggle with the unknown and unusual, leaving those conflicted with a sense of delusional hopelessness towards an ideal resolve.”

Hierophant Streams New Song “Forever Crucified”

Italian deathpunk band Hierophant is now streaming the second track off forthcoming new album, “Mass Grave.” The track, a ferocious mix of death metal and grindcore titled “Forever Crucified,” is streaming below.

“Mass Grave” is Hierophant’s fourth album and first with Season of Mist, and will be released worldwide on November 4th. The band also comments on the new track:

“”Forever Crucified” deals with the impossibility to connect with the outside world and to conform to its non-sense rules. It’s like a burst of blind anger. There’s no target, purpose or any attempt to rationalize it. The music and the lyrics are like a bullet shot into the unknown with the sole purpose to hurt. We’re very proud to have such a great music magazine like Decibel to premiere it.”

1. Hymn of Perdition
2 Execution of Mankind
3 Forever Crucified
4. Mass Grave
5. Crematorium
6. In Decay

Kuolemanlaakso Posts “The World’s Intolerable Pain” Lyric Video

Kuolemanlaakso just revealed a lyric video for new track “The World’s Intolerable Pain,” which is included on the upcoming “M. Laakso – Vol. 1: The Gothic Tapes” album set for international release on August 26th via Svart Records (reviewed here).

Says Kuolemanlaakso mastermind Laakso about the song and its accompanying video: “‘The World’s Intolerable Pain’ is a reflection of my anguish towards the time that we are living in right now. The song combines my own existentialist crisis and the inflammable political state of the world to a meager ray of hope for a better tomorrow in the ever-growing shadow of desperation.

“The entity is sugarcoated with catchy melodies and gothic aesthetics. It’s definitely one of my personal favorites from the album. One of my favorite singers Helena Haaparanta (Crimfall, VALO) guest-stars on the track as well as on the video, directed by Lasse Hartikainen (Michael Monroe, Santa Cruz etc.). It was an absolute pleasure to work with them.”

The new album’s full track listing is as follows:

1. Children of the Night
2. Roll the Dice with the Devil
3. Where the River Runs Red
4. The World’s Intolerable Pain
5. She Guides Me in My Dreams
6. No Absolution
7. Deeper into the Unknown
8. My Last Words
