SERPENTINE CREATION presents new video to the song “Ave Eva”.

Ave Eva. Everything that has beginning has an end too. We are born of sin and will die in vain. Eva is our beginning and the end, or the other way round. Doesn’t matter what way you read the title Ave Eva, you get the same meaning. Mesmerizing string and violent guitar wrangling in chaotic and furious manner, circling above, screaming and drowning in hell’s choir paying tribute to the only Goddess – the first and the last. Eva. Ave.

MOONSPELL – Release “Extinct” Live Video

It was a special day for every MOONSPELL fan, when the band invited their “aficionados” to Campo Pequeno arena in their hometown Lisboa on February 4th, 2017. Only 4.000 of them could take part in the unique and solemn spell, when the Gothic Metal legends entered the stage. Once again Fernando Ribeiro and his bandmates proved that they are one of the best live acts around.

Playing three sets in one day and being as energetic as MOONSPELL was on that day is just impressive. The intimate bond between fans and band never broke in all these hours of ultimate alchemist magic. You can see and feel that in every second of “Lisboa Under The Spell”.

The setlist itself is breathtaking: Starting with their first full length album ever, Wolfheart, from 1995, followed up by the second album, Irreligious, from 1995, they took a long step by jumping to the year 2015 in their last set, presenting Extinct to the frenetic masses in front of the stage.

Today the band releases a third new live clip from “Lisboa Under The Spell”. It’s the title track of the 2015 album “Extinct”.

Fernando Ribeiro on the video: “Now that the DVD is out, I guess a lot of our fans already made up their minds about it and I guess rather were as surprised about its final epic form as we were surprised by the, no-bullshit, honest and very solid reactions to our new LIVE release, praise, great reviews, chart entries at all. As far as I am concerned LIVE releases don’t make the cut sometimes. That’s why the Lisboa Under the Spell you might or might not have already in your hands was so carefully thought out and packaged, reminding us of the very few LIVE releases that make us sit in the couch and watch or listen the hell out of. Records like Life After Death (MAIDEN), Earth Inferno (FIELDS OF THE NEPHILIM) and a few others. Those, with all due respect, were the ones who inspired us to do better. The addition of the album Extinct makes perfect sense to us, as this is the musical thread we are going to follow with the next opus and also because that was the last date of our very dear Road To Extinction tour that started off in 2015 and ended in our hometown, Lisbon on February 2017 e.v. We hope you enjoy this new clip from the title song “Extinct,” featuring the lovely and dangerous Portuguese actress Carolina Torres, brandishing the sword and watching her pack rocking out. Before the lights go out.” It was definitely about time, since MOONSPELL aficionados have been thirsting for a new live release ever since Lusitanian Metal (2008)! Thus, Lisboa Under The Spell is not simply a visual testimony to the success of Portugal`s biggest metal band – it is a celebration of the unbound creativity and pure magic that is MOONSPELL.”

PUTERAEON: new album and video

Swedish Death Metal band PUTERAEON will release their new album, named “The Dunwich Damnation”, on April 16, 2018 and revealed a video to the song “The Living Inferno”.

The abominable Cult frequently named PUTERAEON, was spawned in the year of the plague 2007. Since then this disease has given unholy birth to a number of ghastly demos, albums, splits etc.

The band hails from the deserted worn down town of Alingsås in the haunted outskirts of Gothenburg. Many are the tales of this god forsaken region and it’s halfbreed of inhabitants. In this darkness something festers at night and the battering of drums combined with chainsaw can be heard across the deserted plains. Stay too long and it will get to you. Engulfed in shadows, PUTERAEON stir the old cauldrons of death blending the darkness of Master H.P. Lovecraft into the deadly stew. Touch the darkness and taste its splendour.

HIRAX: Video footage from Osaka’s True Thrash Fest 2018

On February 10, the Legendary U.S. Bay Area Thrash Gods, HIRAX, performed at True Thrash Fest Osaka in Japan. The stage-filmed video footage for the songs “Idk”, “Hellion Rising” and “Baptized By Fire” is now available on Youtube, watch the 9 minutes and 31 seconds of Pure Intense Over The Top Thrash Metal, here:

HIRAX is an American Thrash Metal band beginning in 1984 under the leadership of vocalist Katon W. De Pena (founding member). The band was an early example of the Thrash Metal, Speed Metal and Crossover. HIRAX is based in Los Angeles but, at that time, because of the weak Metal scene in their area, they spent most of their time playing in San Francisco along with SLAYER, METALLICA and EXODUS, who were all part of the exciting new Metal emerging from the Bay area. They released a four-song demo in 1984. This demo was widely circulated and the band became known and respected worldwide through the Metal tape trading underground. Since then HIRAX has released 5 full length studio albums and multiple EPs and has toured the world including many festivals in South America, Europe, Japan, Scandinavia, and the U.S.A.

THE 3RD ATTEMPT reveal second part of track by track concept video

It’s been well over two months since THE 3RD ATTEMPT promised that the second instalment of their track-by-track concept video would appear within days of the December release on Dark Essence Records of their second full-length album “Egocidal Path”. The two-part video was intended to give a very personal insight into frontman and lyricist Ødemark’s emotionally charged, and highly personal lyrics, with the first part describing the first four tracks on the album, and the second highlighting the last four tracks.

The 3rd Attempt

The 3rd Attempt

Unfortunately, a series of problems and mishaps caused the second part to be delayed until now, because, as Ødemark explains, “Everything went fucking wrong. It really did. Every single step of the creation of this two-part video was hit by either technical issues, a computer breakdown, lack of time, and of course, the inevitable noob mistake. It could be said that the whole process was a series of disasters, but perhaps that’s why I couldn’t be more proud of the final outcome.

“This has been my first video creation ever, I had a vision and the motivation, and in order to make it happen I began learning all the technical stuff there is to learn about every aspect of video making (animation, recording, lights, editing, post production, encoding etc ..) Add to this the fact that I had 0 Budget, so all the costs came from my already empty pocket. But anyway, if there is no money, it has to be replaced by ingenuity and knowledge, and I wouldn’t let anybody interfere with it or give me a hand. I was set on proving I could do it all myself – and I did!”.

The 3RD ATTEMPT was formed by former CARPATHIAN FOREST guitarists Tchort (GREEN CARNATION) and BloodPervertor (OPUS FORGOTTEN) and, aside from Ødemark on vocals, the band’s lineup is completed by Tybalt (FORTID, DEN SAAKALDTE) on drums. “Egocidal Path” is the follow up to the band’s 2015 debut album “Born in Thorns”, and, with it, according to Tchort, the 3RD ATTEMPT took a “huge leap towards the true sound and identity of the band. While our debut album “Born in Thorns” represented the CARPATHIAN FOREST era of our song writing, “Egocidal Path” is a newly written album that is more aggressive, tighter, and in-your-face. It also showcases the fantastic drumming skills of Tybalt (FORTID, DEN SAAKALDTE) and the vocal range and creativity of Ødemark

The 3rd Attempt - Egocidal Path

The 3rd Attempt – Egocidal Path

Ødemark himself explains what he sought to achieve with the two concept videos: “I wanted to give a visual context to our music, and, at the same time, give as much of an insight into the thinking behind the lyrics without it being a written explanation that nobody bothers to read anyway. This lead me to creating what you are now seeing. Yes, I do give a general idea of what each song is about, but I don’t set out to explain the lyrics line by line, I want those who are interested to discover things for themselves.

As regards the visual content, I decided to create a two completely different scenarios. WIth the first video, I wanted to convey the sense of chaos associated with the self-destructive lifestyle aspect of Black & Roll, and to do this I had to adopt a “0 tolerance for political correctness”. So if the mere sight of the naked human body or drugs offends you in any way, if you do not want to see the whole of what life involves without getting “offended”, well, this one is not for you. Life is, what life is, with or without your personal approval. With its hints at decadence and personal corrosion, the first video contains a lot more symbolism. The barbed wire and the pain is real though, and people can decide for themselves what it all means.

For the second Video, I wanted something radically different, I didn’t want people to have to drink twice from the same cup. I needed to create a more realistic scenario as I wanted to depict depression, madness, confusion, mysticism, and make it more personal. I almost went too far with the cutting in the last scene, it all ended up with a pool of blood behind the scenes – too much adrenaline, jeeze!”
