It’s Friday at 4PM! This means it’s time for the music video roundup. If you’re new to either the blog or these music video roundup posts, this is how it works. Every week, I watch some of the best recently released music videos and compile them into a list for everyone’s viewing pleasure. They’re span across all the different genres, so expect something different for most of the tracks. Up first is the Massachusetts Metalcore faves, Unearth. This track, ‘No Reprisal’ is the latest track from their seventh studio record, ‘Extinction(s)’ which features a compilation of footage from their recent shows.
We’ll go across the pond for the next band and we’ll switch up the genre as well. Hardcore newcomers Modern Error debut EP was released a few weeks ago and they had one track to put to video to celebrate the release which vocalist Zak Pinchin spoke about.
‘Self Synthetic’ is about a false sense of self breading down barriers and taking over your whole reality, and you’re just struggling to keep your true self alive.”
Check out the video below.
We’re going all over the world for this weeks video roundup. Just imagine how many miles it would take to travel to all of them! Next up we have Punk Rockers from Toronto, Ontario. This can only be Pup who’ve gotten 250 fans involved via covers and interpretations for their video for an unreleased track, ‘Free At Last’.
Right, after their massive Brixton Academy show in December 2018, Deaf Havana announced they were actually recording the show for a live DVD! It actually dropped today but here is a taste of what there when in a live video for ‘Hell’.
Time for something from a more recent record. The metalcore monsters Attila self-released their latest album, ‘Villain’ and they had to show what they do to celebrate, they made the video for the title track to show how hard they party.
Moving back to some British bands, the up and coming Metalcore group Sworn Amongst have recently announced they’re the latest signee’s to LA label, Famined Records. They did have a surprise on top of this announcement in the form of their new track ‘Believe’.
This next track and video come fresh from tech metal foursome Ursus. Speaking on this, vocalist Joe Grimes has said: “The concept and title Totem’ refers to a place where bodies would be stored before the ground became soft enough to dig, because of very cold temperatures; this was referred to as a “Totem house”. The lyrical content of the song is based around the story of a person being buried alive whilst their loved ones mourn, unaware they’re still alive and going through the most horrific and slow death.”
Moving across to Belgium, we have Brutus. This is the second track from their soon to be released record, ‘Nest’. Speaking about this particular track the band have said: [The track is about] doubts. You just try so hard to just keep going and doing the best you can. But in fact, sometimes you only get shit in return. People don’t always backup the choices you’re making. The aggression in the high guitar notes resemble the irritation we felt towards everyone who was not driving along with us. In the second, compelling part we are asking them to give us time, so we can process what they’re saying.”
Penultimately today we’re going to Denver of all places. The Anchor’s upcoming record is a follow-up to their 2016 debut, ‘A World Ahead’ but until then, we have the latest cut from the record, ‘Revive’.
Time for the last video and indeed I wanted to actually save my favourite and in my opinion the best track for last! This is Energetic, Weird and Different. Three words I’d use to describe Scottish aces Vukovi. The twosomes legions of fans hopefully won’t have to wait too long to hear when their upcoming record will be released but they’ve got plenty of chances to see them perform when they support Set It Off and on their huge headlining UK tour. for now though, here’s the latest taste of just what the band can do in the form of ‘C.L.A.U.D.I.A’.
And that’s it for another week of music video roundup. Don’t forget to check back next week at 4PM sharp for another countdown of ten of the best recent music videos to feast your eyes upon. There’s also new posts every day on the Almost anything Media so be sure to check out anything that might catch your eye.
