WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM Unveil Music Video For “Born From The Serpent’s Eye”

Facebooktwittermail

Since their inception in 2002, over the course of 5 studio albums and hundreds of live performances, WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM have refracted Black Metal through their own cascadian prism.  Their songs explore the hidden world of magic that one accesses through dreams, visions and music and the resulting sounds are intimately linked to the wild lands of the Pacific Northwest.  Now, a portal into the dreamworld of WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM opens again with their forthcoming sixth LP, ‘Thrice Woven‘ –  a glorious return to the blazing and furious Black Metal that they alone can create.  Today, the band has unveiled a magical new music video for a segment of the album’s first single, “Born from the Serpent’s Eye.”

MIST OF MISERY Release Single Broken Chains From Upcoming EP!

Facebooktwittermail

 

Mist Of Misery is for sure one of the most unique Black Metal bands I have ever come across, they combine the best elements from some of the most beautiful aspects from Black Metal together and make it their own. While listening you will almost get overwhelmed by their diversity, you will hear some clear influences of depressive, atmospheric, symphonic and melodic black metal. It is crazy how these guys do it but it sounds insanely good. I have fallen in love with them right after the release of their 2016 album ‘Absence’. It moves you into this mood that you can’t explain in words, it is magical. You for sure need to check it out, I have linked it down below and you can also click on the album name right above.

Former Venom members have in fact created the band Venom Inc, former drummer Abaddon is in it next to vocalist/bassist The Demolition Man and guitarist Mantas. It is really cool that they created a new band, so great that they are still making music!

Chicago Open Air Spotlight: BEHEMOTH

Facebooktwittermail

*Every Tuesday and Thursday from now until Chicago Open Air gets here we will be releasing an article about a band playing the festival to get you familiar with them.*

Today’s artist is Behemoth.

On Sunday, July 16th, Chicago Open Air gets a taste of one of the world’s most acclaimed black metal bands, Behemoth. Since forming in 1991, the Polish black/death metal band has been known for their polarizing, intense live shows that sweep the crowd off of their feet. Typically meant for playing in the dark for the atmosphere, it will be interesting to see how Behemoth adjusts to bringing their full power into the sun. They are hitting the road here in the US with Lamb of God and Slayer so they definitely are not to be taken lightly. They are also one of the few bands that still put a great amount of thought into their music videos. Videos like “Ben Sahar”, “Blow Your Trumpets Gabriel”, and “At The Left Hand Ov God” contain very vivid imagery rather than only showing the band performing like most bands do now. Some people may be turned away from them because of the satanic content but I encourage you to give them a chance live. I know several people that did not appreciate them until watching one of their incredible live shows. Continue reading
