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.

BARONESS Shares Rehearsal Videos With New Guitarist

Just days after announcing their amicable split with guitarist Pete Adams here, progressive metallers Baroness have given us a proper introduction to their newest member, Gina Gleason. That introduction to the new guitarist is being made via two rehearsal room video clips for the songs ‘Chlorine And Wine‘ and ‘Morningstar‘. It goes without saying that Gina is, or must be, an incredibly talented player to have so readily stepped into the Baroness spotlight at this time. Plus, she is also adding a new element to the beloved act…female vocal parts. The band’s well respected, revered status within the metal/music community is enough to put the sensation of pressure on anyone but she seems to be right at home in the insightful peeks below. Judge for yourself…
