STONED JESUS – Thessalia

STONED JESUS present their beatiful claustrophobic official video for the third single „Thessalia“ from their upcoming album Pilgrims (September 7th via Napalm Records). In the video, each band member of the Ukrainian trio fights his own battle, cooped up in a small closet with everyday things around them. It’s an allegory of life, seeing them fighting against the tightness while playing and screaming on their „Thessalia“. STONED JESUS about the single and upcoming tour:„The shortest and the most direct song off the record, it’s also one of the first written for “Pilgrims”. We’re so much looking forward to play the whole album live, but especially… Continue reading

THE NIGHT FLIGHT ORCHESTRA – Race Towards Bremen On A Floridian Highway

Guitarists David Andersson and Sebastian Forsland of Swedish classic/progressive rock supergroup THE NIGHT FLIGHT ORCHESTRA have recorded a rehearsal room video of them improvising a new track called ‘Race Towards Bremen On A Floridian Highway’. Commented Andersson: “Me and Sebastian had planned to meet in his studio to do a playthrough of one our new songs for my endorser, ESP guitars. But when we got there it felt quite boring to just mime along to a pre-recorded track, pretending to be excited about it. And it doesn’t really represent the spirit of THE NIGHT FLIGHT ORCHESTRA. So, knowing that Sebastian is a one-man band all in himself, we thought it would be much more fun to improvise a… Continue reading

AUTHOR & PUNISHER – Nihil Strength

Industrial metal visionary AUTHOR & PUNISHER delivers his sixth full-length recording and Relapse debut Beastland on October 5th. Watch the official performance video for “Nihil Strength” . AUTHOR & PUNISHER’s mastermind Tristan Shone comments: “I built new machines for this album to make more aggressive and dynamic music. These devices are compact and powerful, made from robotic components, intended for high energy repetition. I, as do many others, feel rage against the Beasts of our era: those who horde, who poison, or who discriminate. We need aggressive music to make an aggressive statement. Beastland is an introspection of who we are as a human race.  At a… Continue reading
