Northlane have dropped a brand new video for "Colourwave". Since the band's surprise drop in March this year, "Colourwave" has charged ahead to become one of the most popular songs on the album. Thematically, "Colourwave" delves into guitarist Josh Smith's battle with depression and the darkness his mind created in a world that drips in colour. A therapeutic song for Smith to pen, Northlane worked with their longtime collaborator Jason Eshraghian to bring "Colourwave" to life.

Josh Smith says “Colourwave has been one of the fan favourite tracks on Mesmer so we felt compelled to shoot a video for it. Our main goal here was to create the most visually stunning clip to date. While the crazy UV paint scenes were the centerpiece here, it had to also tie into the lyrics thematically at the same time. The song is about suffering through mental illness and realising that the negative glass through which you see the world is within your own mind”.

Portugal's HOOFMARK to release "Stoic Winds" through Ultraje

News/nyheterPosted by Hallowed nyheter 2017-09-11 14:32

Ultraje is a magazine that pays attention to the big names but it's also very dedicated to the underground. Thus, in this second half of 2017 it was decided that it is time to continue writing about music but also to release it, and Portugal's Hoofmark is Ultraje’s first release as a record label.

Originally released in November digitally and on cassette, "Stoic Winds" will now have a CD release on December 8th, 2017.

Hailing from Lisbon, Nuno Ramos knows no boundaries or labeling, and it is also due to its conceptual risk that Hoofmark deserves a physical version that will stand on the collectors' shelves.

If tracks like "Amongst a Sea of Darkness", "Stoic Winds" and "From the Foot of God's Throne" are influenced by the archaic eras of black metal, with Bathory and Mayhem at their head, the track "Dust Trails" elaborates a sound that approaches the americana and country genres with dissonances and rawness to the full, showing that the artist does not go with trends but with soul. And if with "Dust Trails Blazing" we are caught up in a doom raid, then this won’t be a shock.

More details will be revealed soon.

«Hoofmark navigates through lo-fi waters and, in addition to other predicates, its black/punk + country blend is ​​the great attraction of "Stoic Winds". There are nine tracks and about 50 minutes of unconventional and unlabeled sound. Forget about black metal-related commonplaces and enjoy this meal that has ingredients as important and seminal as Bathory, NWOBHM, old-Sepultura, Johnny Cash, among other striking references.» (Review on Ultraje, in November 2016, by Rui Vieira)

Electric Hellride releases punchy single 'Bite The Prey'

Videos and singlesPosted by Hallowed nyheter 2017-09-11 14:29
ELECTRIC HELLRIDE is a well-known and respected 4-piece group hailing from the Danish underground.

Already having played Wacken Open Air and supported Overkill, ELECTRIC HELLRIDE is known for a tireless energy in an exciting mix of thrash, death and classic heavy metal. Fans of Entombed, Metallica, Machine Head or early Mastodon will love ELECTRIC HELLRIDE and their uncompromised productions with a fierce stranglehold on complex heavy metal.
They are ready with their punchy single 'Bite The Prey' from their upcoming album Praedam.
The new album is entitled Praedam which translated from latin means ”prey”. All songs on the album are somehow connected to this theme. Whether it is to be the hunter or be the hunted. It’s a concept that fits perfectly with ELECTRIC HELLRIDES desperate and aggressive soundscapes. It’s been five years since the release of the groovy “Hate.Control.Manipulate” in 2012 while releasing an EP in 2014 on which the band showcased new tricks and a direction that would end up being the natural prequel to this massive new album. Praedam is atmospheric and dynamic and very much cut to the bone.

The album is recorded and produced at Aurochs Studios with Emil Sauer who is best known for his work with Myrkur (live sound) and Helhorse (production). The new album will be released on ELHELL Records the 15th of September 2017, distributed through Border Music and promoted by Elevation Denmark.

DEMONSTEALER reveal full lineup for the new release with 4 international guest musicians

News/nyheterPosted by Hallowed nyheter 2017-09-10 21:31

Earlier this week, two more international drummers were announced for the upcoming DEMONSTEALER release - Krimh of SEPTICFLESH, ex-DECAPITATED and Romain of BENIGHTED, NECROPHAGIST. This is by far the most ambitious lineup for any release here in the sub-continent. Talking about the new material, Romain said -

"Sahil (aka DEMONSTEALER) sent me his new song without any drums, and first listen, I already had many ideas in my head!! That's always a good sign, this is inspiring stuff, I'm looking forward to this collaboration!"

Prior to this, two other drummers namely Kevin Paradis and David Diepold were announced who also have the honour of playing with the mighty BENIGHTED. This unique strategy goes hand-in-hand with the ongoing crowdfunding campaign which has now reached 85% of the target.

So with four drummers playing on different songs each, expectations are high as to how much of their individual styles will rub off on DEMONSTEALER's music, which is predominantly death metal. The new material is said to be much faster and heavier, and the samples that are posted by Sahil on the official page sound very promising indeed.

DEMONSTEALER is the solo project of Sahil Makhija who is the founding member of one of India's biggest bands, DEMONIC RESURRECTION. He dons multiple roles and the music too is completely in his own vision with ample experimentation and collaborations. The previous DEMONSTEALER album received much praise and saw the release of several official videos in its support. The new album is said to be more death metal and with a number of exemplary musicians slated to be a part of it, it's highly anticipated around the world.

DEMONSTEALER have also recruited the services of renowned Indian artist Reuben Bhattacharya (Visual Amnesia), who did the breathtaking artwork of the latest DEMONIC RESURRECTION album.

Anneke van Giersbergen’s VUUR launch video for new single ‘My Champion – Berlin’

Videos and singlesPosted by Hallowed nyheter 2017-09-10 21:26
Anneke van Giersbergen’s new band VUUR are set to release their debut album, ‘In This Moment We Are Free - Cities’ on the 20th October 2017. Now they are pleased to reveal the official video for new single ‘My Champion

Anneke comments: "This song is the opening track of our debut album and it serves as a kind of master of ceremonies. It’s both heavy and melodic, it showcases the technical abilities of the band, but you can still sing along to it. That’s basically the kind of album I wanted to make. Our guitar player Jord Otto wrote the song and collaborated with producer Joost van den Broek to finalise it. I wrote the lyrics and vocal melodies.

This song is about Berlin after World War II. The goddess on the Berlin Victory Column was raised to commemorate military victories, but in the song the city speaks to her and is asking her for help to overcome troubled times.

I wanted to make a performance video, one that presents the band as a group that is about music and plays with their heart and soul. That’s what we are and I am really proud of this band."

Everyday Circus: New Single "Golden"

Videos and singlesPosted by Hallowed nyheter 2017-09-10 21:17

Everyday Circus are one of the hottest newcomer in Germany right now!

2016 was a good year for Everyday Circus. Their debut „Mirrors“ saw the light of day, they played two tours on their own throughout Europe and were invited to their first UK Tour by Tracer.

How’s 2017 gonna look like?

The answer was given by the songs. They were casually writing towards album Nr. 2 and suddenly there were these three pieces. Without having been planned, they told one story. The big picture. Do they build an album around it or do they set it free? Withdraw themselves or keep at it?

Song by song is the design for 2017 and thus „Golden“ comes as the beginning of a trilogy. „For us, the most important thing is to stay optimistic. It’s a never-ending struggle. In your immediate environment and on the rest of the planet there’s much going awry. Nevertheless, we always try to push back. That’s what ‚Golden‘ is all about“, says lead singer Matteo Schwanengel.
Here are the upcoming dates:
08.09. Dresden, Katy`s Garage
09.09. Prague, Club Lese
13.09. Berlin, Humboldthain Club
14.09. Hamburg, Bar 227
15.09. Köln, Tsunami Club
16.09. Maastricht, D´N Hiemel
04.11. Hannover, I Think Spider Festival
