Arsis Premiere New Song & Music Video “Tricking The Gods”

November 02nd will see the release of Arsis‘ new effort “Visitant“, which will be out via Nuclear Blast/Agonia Records. A music video for the first single from it called “Tricking The Gods“, has debuted online streaming below:

Comments the band’s vocalist/guitarist James Malone:

“‘Visitant‘ is like an old-time word for ghost or apparition. All the lyrics are inspired by a different horror movie. I wanted a title that would allude to that but not give things—what I’m actually saying—away flat out. When I say inspired by, it’s very loose. People still have room to draw their own interpretations of what the lyrics are about.

But they were inspired by horror movies. Like ‘80s horror movies. ‘Silver Bullet‘, for example, which is based off Stephen King’s ‘Cycle of the Werewolf‘, is a favorite. I love that movie. I’ll also name drop ‘The Fog‘, ‘Prince of Darkness‘, and ‘Lord of Illusions‘. There’s a supernatural element to the lyrics for sure.”

GrimWolf Releasing New EP “Order Of The Lycan”

The werewolves from GrimWolf are set to release the follow-up album to their 2011 full-length “Lycanthrope.” Continuing to be all things DIY, the werewolf clan has embarked on producing, mixing, and mastering the forthcoming EP, entitled “Order of the Lycan.” The following press release was also issued:

“Giving heed to classic metal and thrash of the past, GrimWolf aims to satisfy your appetite for all things brutal. This is quite possibly a heavier hitting collection of songs than it’s predecessor. With tracks like Death Anthem, Ripped In Two and Berserker it has all the makings of a good eargasm of liquid and molten metal.

“They are now in the process of collaborating with 13 O’Clock studios in preparation for a Lyric video as well as full fledged music video. Tour dates will be posted soon. Pre-Orders for ‘Order of the Lycan’ can be purchased now at this location. The digital release will be available on Halloween!”
