AMARANTHE - "DROP DEAD CYNICAL" VIDEO OUT NOW!

A mere week after premiering the brand new song "Drop Dead Cynical", the first sonic taste of the new album MASSIVE ADDICTIVE, due out October 21 via Spinefarm Records, Amaranthe have followed up by debuting the accompanying and thoroughly majestic video for the song. It's epic and visually arresting.

Seriously, this is one video you do not want to miss because it is over the top in all the right ways. There's more than a dozen MMA fighters, cheerleaders and lots and lots of pyro. That all adds up to one helluva an Amaranthe experience.

"We can now finally unleash the 'Drop Dead Cynical' video, directed by master director Patric Ullaeus," Amaranthe guitarist Olof Mörck said. "It is energetic, bombastic and explosive, just like you have come to expect from Amaranthe's videos, and the powerful delivery of the song is accentuated by the martial combat throughout the video. As always, you are in for a visual treat; more than 15 MMA fighters, cheerleaders and enough flames to light the heavens on fire! Get ready to be entertained!"

PROGRESSIVE MASTERS RETURN WITH ‘TELLURIAN’

PROGRESSIVE MASTERS RETURN WITH NEW STUDIO ALBUM, ‘TELLURIAN’
PROGRESSIVE MASTERS RETURN WITH ‘TELLURIAN’

IT’S HARD to put a handle on SOEN, but if progressive music is ‘entertainment for those who are easily bored’, then this Swedish outfit fits easily under that heading.

As forthcoming / second studio album, ‘Tellurian’, makes plain, SOEN – that’s drummer Martin Lopez (ex-Opeth, Amon Amarth), vocalist Joel Ekelöf (Willowtree), guitarist Joakim Platbarzdis & bassist Stefan Stenberg – are not concerned with the simple or the shallow; their musical journey takes an altogether more ambitious path, and the result is an expansive body of work, wrapped up in the stunning art of Mexican painter José Luis López Galván, that consistently challenges without being ‘clever-clever’ or tough to enjoy.

The melodies are intricate, the playing muscular and the choruses soaring; overall, the feel is one of a band whose intent is very much in synch with the sort of core values (skilled musicianship, emotion over precision, importance of album artwork, etc.) that seem to be back in vogue…

Produced by Platbarzdis, mixed by the legendary / Grammy Award-winning David Bottrill (Tool, Smashing Pumpkins, Muse, King Crimson, etc.) and mastered at Bob Ludwig’s Gateway set-up in the US by Adam Ayan, also a Grammy winner, ‘Tellurian’ sees SOEN taking the approach of their ‘Cognitive’ debut (2012, Spinefarm Records) and pushing the boundaries in terms of musical scope, the whole thing shot through with the confidence of a band who have found their voice.

Rhythmic, experimental and flowing, and with the ‘muso’ side never taking precedence over a good song and a telling chorus, ‘Tellurian’ (‘relating to, or inhabiting the earth’) will appeal to anyone with an ear for quality playing, and there’s further reward to be had below the surface, with the lyrics taking a more direct route than on ‘Cognitive’, and the construction of the material – including first single / video ‘Tabula Rasa’ (‘Clean Slate’) – allowing room for the raw emotion to shine through.

Music for the head and the heart.

ELECTRIC WIZARD ANNOUNCE 'TIME TO DIE' RELEASE DATE + PRE-ORDERS + VIDEO CLIP

‘TIME TO DIE’, THE NEW ALBUM FROM ELECTRIC WIZARD, TO BE RELEASED SEPTEMBER 29TH

+ OFFICIAL ‘I AM NOTHING’ VIDEO CLIP UNLEASHED!

++ ALBUM / BUNDLE PRE-ORDERS LIVE!

ELECTRIC WIZARD ANNOUNCE 'TIME TO DIE' RELEASE DATE + PRE-ORDERS + VIDEO CLIP

Electric Wizard have today revealed that their forthcoming studio album, ‘TIME TO DIE’, will be released on September 26th via Spinefarm Records; ‘TIME TO DIE’ is the eighth full-length offering from the masters of aural punishment, and is testament to the fact that Electric ‘fucking’ Wizard continue to be the most uncompromisingly heavy, genuinely twisted and evil band in the world.

This will be their first album release since signing a worldwide deal with Spinefarm Records.

In addition to this, a brand new video clip for ‘I am Nothing’ has been unleashed via www.ElectricFuckinWizard.com.

EW guitarist / vocalist Jus Oborn has said of the track, which harnesses the dark underground death metal spirit of 1984:-

"It was the year I became a metal-head. It was heavy shit for real – there was no way you were ever going to get a decent job. So I became a Satanist, I dug up a grave, I got into tape-trading, I had a one-man noise/black/death metal band called Regurgitated Guts, and there were loads of documentaries on TV warning us not to listen to the devil's music..."

All official Electric Wizard pre-order bundles are now live on www.ElectricFuckinWizard.com, featuring limited numbers of vinyl, CD, T-shirt, back-patch & pin badge packages.

Electric Wizard, who have just played headline slots at a number of European festivals, including Hellfest (France), Roskilde (Denmark) and Sonisphere (UK), have the following appearances lined up for 2014, with more shows to be added:-

Aug 16th Jabberwocky, The Excel Centre, London, UK
