RAW IN SECT Debut ‘Therion’ Official Video From Upcoming ‘Kitro’ Album

Incredibly unique Grecian rockers Raw In Sect have premiered a brand new Official Video for their track ‘Therion‘. The song comes off the band’s upcoming third album ‘Kitro‘, set to be out this September. The video can be viewed below while the band shares the following about the song itself: “The video is meant to reflect the transformation into Therion, which is to “find inner power in a primitive way getting in touch with your instincts.

Continuing to share about their blending of traditional Greek music with rock and roll, Raw In Sect‘s members add: “[We seek toredefine what aggressive/rock music is through a totally different approach than the one that has been known in the music scene.”

Really though, it’s about doing something new and artistic instead of repeating the same old patterns of established bands in hopes of securing a career in a declining music industry. Changing the language of the lyrics in Greek, recording live, and not setting on the sound of previous records that was somewhat accepted, are among the risks we took willingly in order to express something new and reach wider audiences.

Serbian Gothic Doomers THE FATHER OF SERPENTS To Release New Album; Video Premiere

Serbian gothic doom/atmospheric death metallers The Father Of Serpents are set to release their new full-length album Age Of Damnation in a few days. Inspired by the likes of Paradise Lost, My Dying Bride, Moonspell and more, the sextet have a very textured, organically appealing heaviness. You can hear, and visualize it, for yourself via their new music video for “Viral”.

“’Viral’ was the last song we did before recording the album in the studio, just a few days before,” The Father Of Serpents comment. “It was almost done in 15 minutes and it went pretty natural and straightforward. We didn’t have the time to overthought or analyze the song, so the energy of the moment when we were jamming the song is there. It is both groovy, catchy and dark.”

Age Of Damnation will be released on June 19 through Satanath Records and United By Chaos. Pre-order it here.

LETHAL AFFECTION Debuts ‘Frozen In Time’ Official Video

The New Jersey melodic metal collective Lethal Affection have issued their brand new Official Video for the song ‘Frozen In Time‘. The single appears on the band’s upcoming full-length album “Choose A Side” due out this fall. “Choose A Side” was recorded at Conclave Studios in Manhattan, produced by Corey Pierce of God Forbid, and mixed by Christopher “Zeuss” Harris.

The band was founded five years ago in New Brunswick, N.J. by guitarists Joe Percario and Nick Kashmanian who were then joined by lead vocalist Noah Simon. Soon, the missing piece was added when drummer Cameron Rozell came on board and this high-energy metal outfit was set into motion. Structured with shredding guitar, heavy grooves, and operatic vocals, Lethal Affection have created a powerfully appealing body of work. This new video clip, as well as its Lyric Video predecessor, ‘Taste Of Anarchy‘ (streaming below) do well in establishing the band’s fierce technicality.

VERMILION WHISKEY Issue ‘Come Find Me’ Lyric Video

Southern Louisiana’s even more southerner hard rockers Vermilion Whiskey have just offered their latest batch of their finest distilled rock ‘n roll for our consumption. The band’s new Official Lyric Video for their track ‘Come Find Me‘ is fermented and aged with righteous riffery and intoxicating rhythms. With vocals drenched in soulful tones and intensely inflected emotion, the song is a fine representation of that inebriating elixer that is Vermilion Whiskey.

If you are so late to the party that you still have not picked up the band’s blues ‘n boozy collection of tunes on ‘Spirit Of Tradition‘ (out now!) then shame on you. It’s blue collar rock through and through as the fine example above, ‘Come Find Me‘, goes down so smoothly when consumed responsibly.

VALLENFYRE Issues ‘The Merciless Tide’ Official Video

The crushing, deathly doom band Vallenfyre, which features members of Paradise Lost and My Dying Bride members, has unleashed a new official video. The clip is for the track ‘The Merciless Tide‘ from the band’s just-released third album, “Fear Those Who Fear Him”, which came out on June 2nd from Century Media Records. The band Vallenfyre is the brainchild of Paradise Lost guitarist Gregor Mackintosh who is joined by guitarist/bassist Hamish Glencross (ex-My Dying Bride) and drummer Waltteri Väyrynen.

Mackintosh spoke about the new song and video saying:”‘The Merciless Tide‘ is about the relentless march of time and also wishing you could be in someone else’s shoes to save them suffering. In the video, we see a man going through immense suffering over a long period of time, never being able to grasp the things he craves, whilst faceless tormentors observe in indifference. This is incredibly grim, so enjoy.”

Fear Those Who Fear Him‘ was once again produced by Kurt Ballou (Converge, Nails) at GodCity Studio in Salem, Massachusetts and mastered by Brad Boatright (Obituary, YOB, Beastmilk) at Audiosiege Mastering in Portland, Oregon. The cover artwork was created by Hal Rotter.

“Fear Those Who Fear Him” was released as gatefold LP+CD on limited colored and regular black 180-gram vinyl, as special edition digipak (international version), jewelcase CD (Canada, USA, Mexico only) and on all digital/streaming platforms.

The Merciless Tide‘ is the latest visualizer from Vallenfyre and follows the previously issued ‘An Apathetic Grave‘ Lyric Vido and ‘Kill Your Masters‘ Official Video, both are streaming below.
