ABYSMAL DAWN Premiere New Video

ABYSMAL DAWN unveiled their brand new video for the track In Service of Time. The video can be viewed HERE.

The track is taken from their 2011 album, Leveling the Plane of Existence, and is an awesome slab of technical death metal with the video set against a backdrop of a bleak and oppressed cityscape.

On the creation of the dark and sinister new video, vocalist Charles Elliott comments:

“Well, it’s finally done! After a little over a year in the making, we’re proud to present the music video for In Service of Time. It was directed and edited by Robert Mestas, who won a contest a while back for making a video clip for our song My Own Savior. He did such a great job with that track, that we decided to give him a shot at making a full-fledged epic video for us. Being a self-financed production though, I think at some point we all realized we’d bitten off a bit more than we could chew.  Several favors we’re called in and many plans would fall apart, causing the video to be delayed for a very long time. We have to say though, the end result did turn out pretty amazing. It’s a very dark dystopian piece, which you’d expect from us, with a nod to the classic silent German film Metropolis. We would like to thank everyone that worked hard on this to make it come out as cool as it did. Enjoy!”

Leveling the Plane of Existence, described by Blabbermouth as “an ass-kicking death metal beast” is out now via Relapse Records. Purchase the album, along with other ABYSMAL DAWN merchandise, from the Relapse Records webstore.

MAGNUS RISING Studio Footage, Live Dates

Whatever It Takes is the title of new, hard-hitting album from Canadian heavy-metallers, MAGNUS RISING. Check out the official album teaser with some great studio and live footage here: http://vimeo.com/50507783.

In other news, MAGNUS RISING can now announce that they will be performing at a festival in Canada this August with headliners 3 Inches of Blood. More details soon. Also, the band is finishing up on their new music video for the The Drill.

Whatever It Takes is about making music on the band’s terms and defying the odds. MAGNUS RISING have soared, trekking back and forth across the country, always working to rock bigger crowds in more bad-ass venues. In their western home, they’ve opened for metal powerhouses Iced Earth, Forbidden and Raven – bands who have showed them that time is irrelevant. Their dedication has paid off in droves building a sound all their own. Layered with emotion, feeling and aggression, MAGNUS RISING is reminiscent of a passionate punch in the jaw.

FACT Release New Live Performance Music Video

FACT and Alternative Press Magazine are exclusively bringing you the new live performance music video for Tonight. The track is a great starter song for new fans, as Tonight is essentially the essence of the band condensed into just over a minute. The band expertly displays their effortless ability to mix blast beat-laden metalcore and pop-punk influenced harmonies—a skill that is evident throughout FACT’s new album Burundanga, which drops on its new release date of June 4, 2013 via Good Fight Music. Take a look at the new video for Tonight at this location.

 

FACT vocalist/guitarist Adam Graham states,

“The video was shot when we did a (sold out) headline show at a venue called The Pipeline in London in March this year after our UK tour with Your Demise. It was rad.”

Graham adds,

“The track Tonight was recorded in Florida with Elvis Baskette (as was the rest of the album), and it’s probably one of my favourite songs on the record. Lyrically, Tonight is a song about realising the moment you’re in and seizing the opportunities that that moment presents. Not wanting to sound pretentious or anything, but it’s about that moment of epiphany when you realise that you’re the one who controls your own destiny. It’s a positive message – it’s about takings control and taking responsibility. It fits into the lyrical theme of the album as a whole because a lot of Burundanga is about being able to take the positives out of loss and regret – everyone has dark stuff happen to them, but it’s all about being able to pick out the specks of light in those dark times, and Tonight is all about doing that right now.”

FACT has another video up for viewing, this time for the track Pink Rolex, exclusively available on their Facebook page. Check it out at this location.

Burundanga is a digital-only release and will be available from iTunes, Amazon and all your favorite digital music retailers. 

With the band’s last two records charting in the Top 10 in their native Japan, the band has continued to enhance their burgeoning reputation with intensive touring both on home turf and across the United States and Europe – touring which has seen them play on the main stage at festivals such as Sonisphere (UK) and Summer Sonic (Japan) as well as forge a hardcore following with a series of club tours alongside established international touring acts Your Demise, Iwrestledabearonce, Senses Fail and Memphis May Fire amongst many others. At the present, FACT has sold roughly 260,000 albums worldwide.

Tracklist:

1. FOSS (Watch video)

2. 1000 Miles

CHIMAIRA Launch Crowd Funding Campaign, New Album Info

Metal titans CHIMAIRA announced a massive crowd funding campaign surrounding the release of their brand new LP, Crown of Phantoms. The album will be released on Tuesday, July 30, 2013.

The band is seeking support for a special fan edition CD/DVD. This edition and its perks will only be available to campaign supporters and will not be sold anywhere else. Specifically,  supporters will be contributing to the following:

  • Two narrative music videos
  • A behind the scenes, Crown Of Phantoms making-of documentary
  • Seven additional tracks exclusive to the fan edition
  • Various behind the scenes videos
  • Expanded version of Dr. Z with fan determined ending
  • Full length album commentary that features dialog from all the band members as they listen to the record start to finish
  • Graphic art storyboards created specifically for the music videos included in the fan edition booklet
  • Original Artwork & Packaging exclusive to the fan edition

To further conceptualize their plan, the band has released a video explaining, with some satire, the details of their campaign along with a sneak peek of a brand new track called Kings of the Shadow World and a visual display of the many creative perks they’re offering to contributors. Visit the official campaign site for full details on the endeavor and its perks.

For more than a decade, CHIMAIRA has been imposing its gravity on the metal community by continually touring the globe and selling more than a million albums worldwide. Their brand of heavy music has evolved and transcended both itself and the trends while maintaining its persistent, bludgeoning force. In 2013, CHIMAIRA continues to direct the masses and define a dark future with their new album, Crown of Phantoms.

Frontman Mark Hunter comments on the band’s forward progression:

“When I started this band I had a desire to make extremely heavy, eclectic metal. Nothing has changed in that regard. I wanted to merge all the styles I loved into a hybrid of sounds. Having the chance to reinvent the group gave me the opportunity to work with unbelievable players and take the essence of Chimaira to uncharted territory. Assembling the right team was essential to creating what I feel is some of the craziest and most passionate music I’ve had the pleasure to be a part of. The past defines us while the present refines us.”

CHIMAIRA: Mark Hunter (vocals), Emil Werstler (guitar), Austin D’Amond (drums), Matt Szlachta (guitar), Jeremy Creamer (bass), Sean Zatorsky (keyboards)

SETH Premiere New Track

French black metal innovators SETH released the first new track from their forthcoming album, The Howling Spirit. A lyric video for the song Scars Born From Bleeding Stars is streaming now via SMN News. The Howling Spirit is slated for a North American release date on June 11.

SETH recently reactivated following the re-release of their critically acclaimed 1998 debut Les Blessures de I’Ame. The new edition is remastered and includes two bonus tracks and brand new artwork. The re-issue is currently available on Season of Mist’s E-shop as CD and hand-numbered, double gatefold LP limited to 500 copies.

Regarding the new incarnation of the band, band leader Heimoth issued the following statement:

“This is some exceptional moment for us as we are now officially back on the very same label that released our first album in ’98 and I guess this truly makes our recent comeback even more worthwhile. Both parts have taken different directions for more than 10 years but we are thrilled to unveil The Howling Spirit together. I personally feel this is a significant step forward born from the special relationship the band and SOM have had through the years.”
