HARAKIRI FOR THE SKY Release Official Video For “You Are The Scars”! [Video Stream]

Facebooktwittermail

“This song is like a retrospective on broken relationships and the void that stays when people leave. To me it’s not the saying good-bye which is the greatest burden, it’s the never-ending silence, the rejection and the uncertainty. This song tributes the pain that’s left when beloved people disappear completely as if they’d have never crossed way.” – J.J. (vocals)

The song in question is “You Are The Scars” – the latest offering from Harakiri For The Sky’s highly anticipated 4th studio album ‘Arson’, out February 16th next year via AOP Records. The Austrian post-black duo’s 10+ minute epic metal-gaze masterpiece is powerfully emotive, dealing with the pain and confusion of broken relationships that can either drown us or make us stronger. This is beautifully encapsulated in Harakiri For The Sky’s signature symbiosis of breathtakingly atmospheric post-rock soundscapes and emotive black metal – the unlikely equilibrium that explores both the direst depths and fleetingly blissful extremes of the human psyche. Artistically directed, filmed and edited by Andreas J. Borsodi with calligraphy and creative consulting by Albert Hupeka, this is a one of the most touching and creative lyric videos that I have seen in recent times that is flooding with aural and visual meaning. Watch the video below:

“…Too weak to continue swimming, yet not weak enough to give up and sink. Leastwise I know now, that salty waters might cure everything…”

Facebooktwittermail

“A thinking human’s aural wet dream. Part progressive, part psychedelic, part grunge, and all rock, this quartet’s music is just as calm and calculated as it is erratic and emotional” – PureGrainAudio.

Pheonix, AZ’s grunge/prog metal cult The Oxford Coma has just released a new lyric video for “Inflatable Patriots (Touching People In Their Sleep)”, taken from their recently released second LP ‘Everything Out Of Tune’. Commenting on the single, guitarist/vocalist Billy Tegethoff states “This song is about hypocrisy, obliviousness, injustice, brainwashing, hipster racism, and cat noises.” Intrigued? Watch the video below this article!

 ‘Everything Out Of Tune’ delivers more than forty minutes of devastatingly creative noise rock-influenced psychedelic intensity that takes The Oxford Coma’s unique sonics to the next level in every conceivable way. Offering a spectrum of effects-drenched tones that teleports the listener into an altered state of listening, with thundering grunge riffage meets progressive exploration. The follow-up to the band’s 2015 release ‘Paris Is Mine’ features guitar from Intronaut’s Sacha Dunable on the lead track, “Trauma (Maybe I’m Forgetting Something.” Created over a two-year cycle with a completely restructured line-up, ‘Everything Out Of Tune’ was recorded and mixed by the man of many talents Steve Albini at Electrical Audio in Chicago, and mastered by John Golden at Golden Mastering.
