Video Nasties Share New Single ‘Hanging Tree’

Video Nasties Share New Single ‘Hanging Tree’

Debut Album Released Friday 13Th March (APF Records)

Since 2017, something has been lurking in the shadows around Merseyside, snarling from the unseen corners with a piercing horror-metal atmosphere; that something is Video Nasties, and they’re ready to strike with their moral-panic inducing heaviness.  

Comprised from members from some of Liverpool’s finest heavy exports in The Bendal Interlude, SSS, Magpyes and Iron Witch,  the quintet that is Video Nasties mix death metal with punky and thrashy undertones, creating something morbidly macabre and devilishly debauched. On new single ‘Hanging Tree’, guitarist Stu Taylor comments,

Barrens Release New Single ‘Arc Eye’ And Debut Album Will Be Released In April

Barrens Release New Single ‘Arc Eye’ And Debut Album Will Be Released In April

Gothenburg, Sweden-based post-rock trio Barrens, featuring members of long-running alternative/experimental indie rock unit Scraps Of Tape, will release their debut full-length, Penumbra, April 10th via Pelagic Records.

While there is a great deal of common ground between what Scraps Of Tape and BARRENS create musically, Barrens develops their own idiosyncratic sound on Penumbra. Driven as much by synths as guitars, Penumbra oscillates between the dark and bright sides of post-rock. Conceptually, the record centers itself on the topics of change, metamorphosis, and transformation, “especially movement into, through, out of shadows, and back again,” notes guitarist Johan G. Winther. “Being both lost in darkness yet finding comfort there. Seeking it. Afloat in blinding light, suspended in darkness,” as it is etched into the vinyl. Continue reading →

Psychotic Waltz – “The God-Shaped Void” Album Out Today

Psychotic Waltz – “The God-Shaped Void” Album Out Today

Plus Launch Video For “While The Spiders Spin

US Progressive Metal pioneers and innovators PSYCHOTIC WALTZ are releasing their 5th studio album, “The God-Shaped Void”, worldwide today via InsideOutMusic. 

PSYCHOTIC WALTZ checked in with the following comment:

“Today is a special day for us, the release of our fifth album, and first record in over two decades. It’s crazy to think that 35 years ago, the five of us started playing together in Aslan, which a few years later we re-named Psychotic Waltz. We can’t thank our fans enough for their enormous patience biding their time until the album was done. But the wait is officially over! The album basically picks up where we left off in 1997, with the added benefit of modern technology and perhaps a more mature songwriting perspective. We would also like to give thanks to Jens Bogren for his great job with the mixing and mastering, and Ulrich Wild for his tracking work. It’s definitely our best-sounding album to date, and we can’t forget the amazing work of our longtime collaborator Travis Smith for the outstanding artwork. Turn it up, and enjoy!” Continue reading →
