ZHORA‘s sophomore release ‘Ethos, Pathos, Logos‘ that came out last October, somehow went under our radar. Now that we have found about it, we’re gonna serve you with some hot and fresh new music video that just got off the grill. ZHORA has unveiled their new music video for “Riverchrist” off of their most recent album. The track is intense, the vocals doesn’t fail to grab you by your throat, the riffs just does justice to the genre sludge metal, it’s heavy and has a lot of fuzz going on in it. What is also interesting is the video is animated, something that reminds me of my childhood when I’d grab a popcorn bowl and be hooked on to Cartoon Network. But this one is like gore and un-tasteful for the 10 year old kid in me. Anyways, now that you’re into all things dark, who doesn’t like a bit of blood and repulsive stuff, eh!?

Midlands four-piece GO PRIMITIVE have released the brand new video for ‘A Different Person’ the explosive second single taken from their forthcoming debut album, ‘Choices‘,out February 23rd 2018. The video sees our bewildered protagonist attending a seemingly standard job interview which descends into a surreal and chaotic adventure, as he is taunted by unwanted fantasies about the other potential candidates’ alter egos. The track itself is an energised rock stomper layered with thunderous riffs and punchy beats entwined with melodic vocal lines and killer guitar solos. Fuelled with attitude, the band state, “’A Different Person’ is about someone showing their unfavourable true colours, shattering the belief of the kind of person you thought they were”.
I remember when my jaws dropped in disbelief as my eyes stayed fixated on this band when I first came to know about the teenage sensation band, UNLOCKING THE TRUTH. I couldn’t believe the amazing feat and the ability of these mere teens who were already taking the metal and rock community by storm with their crisp and perfectly chiseled song performances. Now, the nu metal teenage trio are ready to break huge on the scene as they prepare to unleash their all new music video, “My Chains“. After years of media excitement, late-night TV appearances, and breakout sets at Coachella and Bonnaroo, the band’s debut album ‘Chaos‘ was finally released independently last year. The music video is off the very same album.

DEAD CROSS debut a visual rebuke of organized religion, and take on it head on, in the band’s video for “Church of the Motherf***ers,”.
“We are not capable of understanding aspects of molecular genetics, let alone the universe,” said bass player Justin Pearson of the Michael Panduro directed clip. “I’d rather not fill in the blanks with outlandish oppressive morals, offensive social politics, and patriarchal garbage. In the year 2017 AD some humans still think there is a god.”
“For me, this song is a call to action to everyone that we as humans will soon extinguish all of the world’s wildlife“
Swedish metal priestess LIV SIN has released the video for her newest single, “King of the Damned,” out now through Despotz Records.

The mixture of classic rock and southern rock is a great way to describe their sound.
