AGHAST! – Something Else; Something Rotten

British band AGHAST! released a new lyric video for the title track of their latest EP, “Something Else; Something Rotten”.

The band shared a few words about this socially charged song:

We’re are not a political band, but we always write about what affects us, or things that we feel strongly about in our daily lives. ‘Something Else, Something Rotten’ is a song about ordinary people struggling to make a living in a world which is weighted in favor of faceless corporations. It is a call to action that is perfectly visualized by Andy Pilkington from Very Metal Art. Andy took our idea and ran with it and we couldn’t be happier with the results. Learn those words!

GHOST – Square Hammer

I confess that every time GHOST puts out some piece of new music my head starts to spin like some little girl on a low budget horror movie.

The Grammy award winner band has released a new EP entitled “Popestar”, featuring cover songs from such other bands as Echo and the Bunnymen, Simian Mobile Disco, Eurythmics, and Imperiet, as well as a brand new original track, ‘Square Hammer’!

The video for ‘Square Hammer’ is already taking the internet by storm. Check it out below:

AIRBOURNE – Rivalry

AIRBOURNE released a new music video, this time for the song ‘Rivalry’, taken from the band’s forthcoming studio album, ‘Breakin’ Outta Hell’, set to be released on September 23rd via Spinefarm Records.

Frontman Joel O’Keeffe explain the concept about this song:

“The lyric probably came from us watching ‘Football Factory’ or ‘The Firm’, one of those kind of films, and I think at the time there was a big grand prix race on, lots of intense rivalries being reported in the media… plus, as with other songs we’ve done, there’s an aspect here of rock ‘n’ roll taking a stand against those corporate forces that seek to restrict our freedoms, that try to shut down the little live venues, leaving bands with nowhere to really hone their craft…”

REDNOTE – Jenga

Swedish Nu-Metal band REDNOTE released a lyric video for the song ‘Jenga’, taken from their forthcoming EP “Born Days In Continuum – Chapter 1: Unity”, out last September 16.

The video was made by Joakim Dahlström at Avaudio Productions.
