“’Screamworks’ is a song about people who make you want to SCREAM. People who would rather manipulate you to serve their own end even when you have a common goal in mind. The song is an expression of the frustration found in dealing with someone who has their head shoved so far up their own….you know. In a lot of ways its hugely cathartic for us and allows us to finally talk about past experiences bottled up for far too long.” – Glen Bridden – (lead Singer) 2 Shadows

5I3A3735

New Delhi based Indian Metal Band BLOODYWOOD has released the official music video for their newest single, “Yaad.” Shot in between the snow-capped mountains of the Himalayas and urban India, the music video celebrates the universal human experience of love and loss through a moving story between a man and his companion dog.

“’Yaad’ (Hindi for ‘remember’ or ‘in memory’) is about the power of accepting the loss of a loved one and moving on. The lyrics celebrate the permanent impact they have on us, reiterating the belief that we carry them in our best memories, no matter how far apart we may be, says Karan Katiyar, Bloodywood’s Founder/guitarist, “I lost my dog 10 years ago and I still feel the loss to this day. I wanted the video to show the bond between a man and his dog to highlight its message.”

In spirit of the message within the song and video, Bloodywood funded the purchase of an animal ambulance for a local non-profit animal shelter called The Posh Foundation, who had to recently scrap their existing ambulance due to overuse and break-downs and were in dire need of a new one.

The new ambulance, which will help save the lives of over 27,000 homeless animals in the National Capital Region of India over the next 5 years, was purchased by the band using the profits made on their very successful 2019 debut tour of Europe named Raj Against the Machine Tour and through their crowdfunding page on Patreon.

Bloodywood were scheduled to make their US debut at the Sonic Temple Festival which has been cancelled due to the CoronaVirus. Karan adds, “We had the US tour planned and we have dates in Europe in August, We are very sad we didn’t get to play for our American fans, and hope our August European festival dates don’t get cancelled. No matter what happens in 2020 we will be back in 2021”

The European Festival Dates:
07/08 @ Bloodstock Festival – Derby, UK
08/09 @ Alcatraz Festival (Swamp Stage) – Kortrijk, BE
08/14 @ Reload Festival – Sulingen, DE
08/15 @ Summer Breeze Open Air – Dinkelsbühl, DE

5I3A3777-2

Bloodywood is a metal band from India known for pioneering a sound that seamlessly fuses Indian folk instruments with metal to devastating effect. Expect to hear the percussive power of the mighty Dhol, the melancholic flute, the single stringed Tumbi and several other uncommon, yet distinctly characteristic sounds from India. A combination of thunderous Hindi/Punjabi choruses and meaningful yet unforgiving rap verses along with the ethnic instrumentation makes Bloodywood a truly unique experience.

 In the Fall of 2010 singer Kenny Waring approached drummer Matt Circle with the idea of putting together a band. Like most musicians, they had known each other and played together in local area rock and metal bands for years. They knew they wanted to write music that was heavy with lots of hook, but it also had to be “radio friendly”, and it had to have a current sound. With Adam Easom on guitar and Rick Harrington on bass, they are currently the heavy-hitting hard-rock powerhouse, Take The Day.

Take The Day has performed at various showcases and regional music festivals and has shared the stage with many national acts including Pop Evil, SAUL, Gemini Syndrome, Monster Truck, Saving Abel, Otherwise, Lacey Sturm (Flyleaf), Tantric, Brett Scallions (Fuel), Seasons After, Another Lost Year, Bobaflex, No Resolve, and Blameshift, gaining them the reputation as a must-see live act, and quickly bringing them attention as a major contender in the Midwest active rock scene!

Take The Day continues to break the boundaries every day with thousands of followers on social media, over 200,000 streams on Spotify, and over 500,000 combined views on YouTube. Take The Day believes in what they do and continues to deliver catchy anthems with soaring choruses proving to the world that they are not just another local band, but that they truly have what it takes to be the best in today’s industry.
Catch Take The Day in the spring of 2019 on “The Fire Inside Tour“.

“Take the Day hits hard with funky melodic grooves and soaring vocals!” – Jimmy Beattie / Lead guitar, Seasons After

“These guys clearly display the chops to cut through.” – EarArt London

THE SIXTH CHAMBER Releases Official Music Video for “Entrance to the Cold Waste” Featuring STANTON LAVEY & MAHAFSOUN

6CETTCWEPCOVERHIRESCROPPED

Gothic Metal Band THE SIXTH CHAMBER has released the official music video for “Entrance to the Cold Waste.” Filmed in the wastelands of Death Valley, CA, “Entrance to the Cold Waste” features STANTON LAVEY (grandson of Church of Satan founder / Satanic Bible author ANTON LAVEY, whose character featured prominently in this season’s AMERICAN HORROR STORY) and belly dancing by MAHAFSOUN.

With ‘Entrance to the Cold Waste’, we sought to create a portal of escape from the drab norms of daily reality we tend to become trapped in and provide passageway to a nightmare realm of sublime dreamscapes,” says Rahne Pistor, Sixth Chamber lead vocalist and founder. “I wanted to create a world as it exists within my deeper consciousness rather than as it seems in the confines of the waking world.” – Rahne Pistor

Video

 

Behold the ancient rites of unspeakable black magic mystic horror!

Mythical Los Angeles gothic doom proto-metal mysterians The Sixth Chamber have completed a new single and music video nightmare trip – shot in the vast, tortured wastelands of Death Valley, California. Part Lovecraft and part Pasolini, the sonic and visual dream quest stars gothic metal bellydance YouTube sensation Mahafsoun as well as Stanton Lavey (grandson of Church of Satan founder/Satanic Bible author Anton Lavey) who aptly plays the role of a crude, heathen elder god. Directed by Constantin Werner.

THE SIXTH CHAMBER is a library in hell where all the world’s darkest secrets are kept in neatly arranged volumes on shelves. Band leader Rahne Pistor came up with the concept in 2001 inspired by the writings of 18th century mystic William Blake. Since that time the band has accumulated a long and storied recording legacy with gothic, metal, experimental, blues, psychedelic, fantasy/horror soundtrack and other musical and poetic influences evident in their sound. Themes generally focus on the mythic, mystic and phantasmic.

STANTON LAVEY is the grandson of Church of Satan founder and Satanic Bible author Anton Lavey. The resemblance to his iconic grandfather is uncanny. Stanton spends his time promoting Anton Lavey’s legacy and related principles of the Laveyan Satanist philosophy.

MAHAFSOUN, a Persian belly dancer and model, aptly describes herself as an escapist. She became a YouTube sensation as an early adopter of gothic metal bellydance and has shared the stage belly dancing live with revered metal acts including Moonspell, Epica and Ex Deo. Her style is mired in dark fantasy art, and she is currently one of the most easily recognizable Gothic fashion models of today.

Montreal’s MIRE (prog rock/metal) Announce Release of Inward/Outward; Offer Free Download

Rising out of Montreal, QC’s vibrant music scene, progressive rock / metal band MIRE are proud to announce the official release of their debut album Inward/Outward on March 18th to follow up their 2010 self titled EP.

 

Two years in the making, Inward/Outward is a 10 track reflection of ideas flying every which way around the recording studio, ranging from cognitive science to a military stint in Afghanistan by guitarist Dave Massicotte.

 

“We created this with our guts and have dared to explore a less common style of metal where the music is less obvious and sometimes requires the individual to have more than one listen before being able to grasp and really appreciate every musical element,” says guitarist Massicotte of the album. “From big chunky guitar to light piano melody, every song will take you on a different journey and set of emotions.”

The band has released the first music video ‘Limitless Pt. 2’ in support of the album, which can be viewed at the following link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kQnqLxFv5oM

mire - "limitless(pt2)" [official hd]

FREE Download – Soundcloud stream: http://soundcloud.com/mireband/04-limitless-pt-2 

FREE Download – Bandcamp stream: https://mire.bandcamp.com/track/limitless-pt-2

“Limitless Pt. 2 is about waking up from your daily grind to acknowledge the mysticism of your existence. The potential of what mankind is capable of, starts in the hands of its individual subjects – it starts with you. As the title implies, Limitless is an expression of how far you should push your ambitions in all directions to fulfill your own ideal based on your individual experience.’ says vocalist JP LaChapelle. “MIRE celebrates diversity, because slaving to fit the mold serves another. Enough of us have been sacrificed for a semblance of freedom, and to perfect it takes mad balls. Courage to confront fear every single morning, day and night, live on the edge of your seat at all times and lean forward – goad life to ‘come at you bro’. Developing your conscience allows you to stretch out the fiber of the NOW and analyse it. Establish objectives; try 10 times in different ways until you succeed. OWN YOUR DESTINY. That’s the passion we felt when we created Limitless together.”

Track Listing: Inward/Outward

1. Complex (7:18)
2. Tyrannicide (5:33)
3. Limitless (Pt. 1) (3:47)
4. Limitless (Pt. 2) (3:22)
