Machine Head Releases New Single ‘Come The Firestorm’

Bay Area metal titans MACHINE HEAD have released a 3-track digital single titled “Arrows In Words From The Sky” today.

Written against the backdrop of a once-in-a-century pandemic, and the long and painful death of frontman / guitarist Robb Flynn’s mother, these songs represent one of the darkest chapters in MACHINE HEAD history. 

Flynn states:
“The lyrics to these songs took to me places inside I didn’t want to go, from the bile and negativity on “Rotten,” to nothing-will-beat-me-down fury of “Become The Firestorm,” to the title track “Arrows” being one of the saddest songs I’ve ever written, yet somehow has the power to lift me up out of what was a very dark time in my life. My hope is that by sharing these dark experiences with the Head Cases of the world, it can save someone else out of that same dark place.”

Check out ‘Come The Firestorm’ below.

Oceans Reveal New Single ‘Everyone I Love Is Broken’ Feat. Robb Flynn

Post metal heroes OCEANS release their new digital EP “We Are Nøt Okay” via Nuclear Blast. They also reveal their fourth single ‘EVERYONE I LOVE IS BROKEN’, for which the band teamed up with none other than the American metal legend Robb Flynn (MACHINE HEAD) to call out the dangers of rashly prescribed antidepressants.

Timo Rotten comments: “Working with Robb and all the other amazing people that contributed to this EP was an experience I will never forget.
Everyone was so positive about it and we all put so much energy into this without the slightest hint of hesitation. It’s just absolutely mind-blowing to me and I couldn’t be happier about how it all turned out.
Together we can make a difference and end the stigma of mental health once and for all!”

Robb Flynn adds: “The OCEANS team reached out to me with a really unique idea for a song. There was a public blog about depression that anyone could add their story to, the band partnered with the blog and took bits of peoples stories, and from that concept came the lyrics for this song.
As someone who has battled and written about depression, I know how powerful music can be to fight off the feeling. This song has a powerful message, I’m honored to be a part of this great song.”

The accompanying music video graphically displays the effects of pill addiction. Watch it below:

Recently, OCEANS also announced a special live stream that – just like their new EP -focuses on various topics surrounding mental health. For this stream, the band join forces with famous moderator and YouTuber Alex Prinz aka. Der Dunkle Parabelritter as their host and special guests Andy Dörner (CALIBAN), Lena Scissorhands (INFECTED RAIN) and Christoph Wieczorek (ANNISOKAY), who were all involved as guest-singers on the new EP.

The stream will start on May 2nd, 20:00 CEST on the Twitch channel Der Dunkle Parabelritter. During the stream, fans will have the chance to communicate directly with the band via a chat and all donations made during the event will go to the German NPO The Ocean In Your Mind, who will also participate in the stream and whose work is dedicated to those who struggle with their mental health.

During this special occasion, OCEANS will also be playing exclusive acoustic versions of the songs from “We Are Nøt Okay“ and reveal more details about the release.

Cooperating with The Ocean In Your Mind, A German NPO, the band adds a very serious tone to their newest output by turning “music for the depressed” into active help and encouraging fans to join the cause.

The EP “We Are Nøt Okay” contains four different songs dealing with all aspects of mental illness. Each track features a special guest adding his very own style to the new output of Berlin/Vienna based post metal heroes OCEANS.

Machine Head Are In The Studio

During the Pandemic, Machine Head released several new tracks, with the most recently single being ‘My Hands Are Empty’.

The band are now being very productive again as they’ve shared a brand new photo from the studio.

In a selfie taken by Robb Flynn with the caption, “What do we have here?”, it shows the band in the midst of what are presumably new studio sessions. Does this mean another single is coming soon? Or even a full album? Well, I suppose time will tell.

New Music Video Roundup 20/11/20

Hello everyone! Welcome back to the new music video roundup. We’re here for a roundup of ten of the best recently released music videos. They’re not all within the same genre and they’re all different in some way or another but that means that there’s a little something for everyone here but come on, let’s get down to the music!

First up this week we have the Australian outfit Bad/Love who recently released their latest single, ‘Social Suicide’ featuring Ken Crossfaith.

Social Suicide is a retort on how media influences society in an age where people are experiencing life through their phones.  

“Young women are chasing an unachievable photoshop appearance in order to feel accepted while boys are taught that they must not show emotion and should mistreat others to feel important.” says Landon Kirk.  He continues “Social media & marketing influences every step we take and we march blindly without free thought. We are losing what makes us human and are trading it in for a cheap artificial quick fix.  Social Suicide is an anthem to make people aware of the affect technology, media and social influence is having on the human condition and to be reminded to step away and find free thought once more.” 

“This song is a critical message to the generation of Social media. I’ve been doubting whether it is really important for our lives. It is helpful BUT I also think that we shouldn’t be addicted to social media platforms because sometimes it’s wasting our time. I’d rather face myself and get self evolution than become a slave of Social media. Conservation or Revolution, go pick one!” Ken Crossfaith

Now do you remember Palaye Royale’s track ‘Tonight Is The Night I Die’? It was a standout track on the record and we’ve been cautiously awaiting a music video. Now that time has come for a truly epic music video that can only be encapsulate Palaye Royale as the true visionaries they are.

This track is straight off their record, ‘The Bastards’ which is out now via Sumerian Records.

Next we have Equal Vision Records band Hail The Sun shared a new video for their song “Secret Wars.” Originally released on the 2017 EP of the same name, the band decided to create the video as a commentary to the actions and events that have occurred in 2020.

As guitarist Shane Gann explains; “After all that has transpired recently, we can’t help but think of this song, written back in 2017. We are pleased to have created a video for “Secret Wars,” which is all about the influence of those in power and how they keep us unaware.” The lyrical content of the track is just as prevalent now, paralleling the feeling that many are experiencing throughout the world today. Vocalist and drummer Donovan Melero elaborates; “I wrote this from a perspective of an instruction manual on how to control and manipulate the masses for a hidden agenda. I think powerful forces can do powerful things when we don’t know what’s happening.” 

We’re heading over to Florida for the band Wage War as they have dropped the video for the song “Surrounded.” The song will appear on the fifth anniversary vinyl edition of the Blueprints, which was the band’s debut record. It was released by Fearless Records on November 27, 2015. Pre-order the anniversary version, which features updated artwork and packaging and is out 4th December.

“Surrounded” is a previously unreleased track from Blueprints. The footage that comprises the video was culled from personal clips from the 212 shows the band played in 13 countries while supporting the record.

“To celebrate the five-year anniversary of its release, we’re excited to put out an unreleased track from our debut album Blueprints,” shares Wage War. “‘Surrounded’ is a song that easily could have made the record, but never found its place. Over the last five years we’ve grown together — as musicians and individuals. The release of ‘Surrounded’ has been a great time to reflect on where our careers started and a chance for some perspective.”

The visual truly captures Wage War in their element — on stage and giving their all while living life on the road and converting those who see them into fans.

Right, now we are in the Bay Area for metal titans Machine Head as they have released a new single “My Hands Are Empty,” today on Nuclear Blast. The song marks the first musical collaboration between MH mastermind Robb Flynn and original “Burn My Eyes” guitarist Logan Mader in 24 years.

From the haunting opening vocal, the classical drums, the melancholy guitar line, the listener knows they are in for something epic. The sky gets a little darker, the goosebumps start to prickle the skin, ears search to hear what comes next. By the time the verse kicks in, the heaviness overtakes.
“MISERY, cover me in waves, the heartache is slowly, withering, I become her slave”

And so begins a song of depression and opioid addiction, by Machine Head.

Guitarist/vocalist Robb Flynn begins, “I have some family members who have beaten their opioid addiction, and have some still in the throes of addiction. It is painful to watch, and I deal with it with great difficulty.  It is a song of sadness, but there is hope as well.  I have beaten my own drug addictions and we can fight through this, together, and share our pain with the world.”

He continues, “Musically I wanted to go for a bit of a “Through The Ashes Of Empires” vibe, and it had a grandiose vibe from the beginning, something about that vocal melody haunted me day and night. I sent it off to one of our collaborators Joel Wanasek, and he came back with a whole depth and dimension with strings and keys that really made the song come alive. I added the guitar harmony in the chorus soon after and I knew we were on to something special.

On the recent “Burn My Eyes 25th Anniversary Tour” I mentioned to Logan about needing a riff or two for a new song, he was excited to collaborate, I sent him the song and the next day he sent me back the heavy riff in the bridge and I was floored. It fit perfectly, and felt really cool to be writing together 24 years later.  Jared came up with the rhythm under the lead section and the song really locked into place.”

Guitarist Logan Mader adds, “During pre-pro for the BME anniversary tour last year, I had a special opportunity to collaborate with Machine Head for the first time in over 20 years. 

This is a big milestone for me, to circle back on a massive orbit around life and end up doing new music with MH is epic and unexpected. The song, “My Hands Are Empty” was almost completed but needed a riff or two. Robb sent it to me, so I jumped in and added a section which ended up in the master after some arrangement tweaks by Robb. The song is amazing. It was a great feeling to be in the studio with Robb after all these years and I hope to do it again!”

The earth-pounding drums were performed by Navene Koperweis (Whitechapel, Animals As Leaders) who performed on the track “Circle The Drain” (released in February) and the song feature trading vocals in the chorus between lead singer Flynn and bassist Jared MacEachern for a truly dynamic feeling musical piece.

Heading back to British waters for the the metalcore outfit Oceans Ate Alaska have debuted a new song called ‘Metamorph’, the band’s first offering of new material since their 2017 LP, ‘Hikari’.

“As the original lineup for Oceans Ate Alaska, we are hugely proud to announce our brand new single Metamorph,” the band says. “Time plays a key factor in growth. We as musicians have let this sink in over the past few years and expanded upon our influences and ideas. But the space we’ve had between us has brought a new creativity to the mix. Everything feels new, almost undiscovered. Prepare for a new era of music.”

The track also sees the return of original frontman, James Harrison, who left the band back in 2016. He was replaced by Jake Noakes (ex-Faultlines, ex-Laguna Sunrise), who has now stepped down to focus on his work as a tattoo artist.

Moving on in this weeks Music Video Roundup, the LA metal giants In This Moment have a special release in the form of‘As Above, So Below’, a track taken from their recently released seventh album, ‘Mother’.

“It’s a new level,” she said. “It’s empowering. It makes you want to hold your head high. I have guest singers. We’re covering a song. It is fire. It’s very powerful. And it’s such an honor to come together with these beautiful, powerful, talented, diverse people.”

Now, In This Moment are showing another side to their new music with the powerful video for “As Above, So Below.” Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the band had to approach this project a little differently. Directed by Brink, the “As Above, So Below” video features numerous captivating visuals and even portrays the In This Moment members as puppets.

“We are so excited to show the world the magic we created with handsomedevilspuppets and Jeremy Saffer,” Brink says. “It was a challenging time to bring a music video together with everything that’s been going on, so we had to get creative. We are so thrilled with the outcome and that we had to push ourselves out of our box to manifest this video. We feel grateful to collaborate with other artists and to be able to bring ‘As Above So Below’ to life for all of you. Enjoy.”

Ukraine’s busiest groove metal machine Jinjer are back with their brand new single “Retrospection (Live)”, taken from their upcoming live album: Alive In Melbourne, which will be released on November 20, 2020 via Napalm Records. The live album and subsequent videos were filmed on March 5th this year during their debut Australian tour with the pandemic hot on the heels of their Macro World Tour, which would sadly, along with the rest of the musical landscape come to a screeching halt a week after the Melbourne set was captured for on film. Still, with JINJER’s sheer will, drive, determination and never give up attitude they were able to turn the madness of this year into a positive.

Bassist Eugene Abdukhanov comments: It‘s still pretty incredible that 4 Ukrainians travelled 14,770 km just to sing in their native language … to the welcoming ears, eyes and open arms of Melbourne. This night will forever be burned in our hearts and the beat of “Retrospection” fit that night like never before. Shows like this should happen each time we perform and we cannot wait to get back on tour to make sure that happens every night. Until then just enjoy this moment in time called Alive In Melbourne

Despite the Global Pandemic, JINJER have managed to stay busier than before and besides releasing their debut live album, they toured Germany and Switzerland in September becoming the first non-European band to tour across borders during the age of Covid-19 and they are also currently filming videos for all remaining tracks on their previously released album Macro.

Things are looking great for JINJER right now.

Penultimate video for this week’s roundup and a left field choice is the Alt-Pop superstar Billie Eilish with her latest release, ‘Therefore I Am’.

The track comes with an official music video also directed by the 18-year-old, five-time Grammy winner, and was shot in a deserted Glendale Galleria shopping mall, a familiar stomping ground for Eilish during her early teen years.

You can check out her self-directed video for ‘Therefore I Am’ below.

And the last choice for this week had to be this band. They’re Post-Hardcore, they’re Welsh and they’re back with their latest effort in ‘Monsters’, Dream State’s first new music drop since the release of 2019’s Primrose Path.

Produced by long term collaborator Dan Weller (Bury Tomorrow, Enter Shikari) the new single is the first chapter for the band. Currently recording a new EP due for release in the first half of next year, the band will also head out on the road for their rescheduled UK tour supporting I Prevail and slots on both Slam Dunk and 2000trees festivals.

Speaking on the new song, CJ Gilpin (Vocals) says, Monsters is an expression of the inner goddess in me and is about the acceptance of my messy, chaotic energy; the owning and surrendering to who & what I am. It’s an awakening and I am saying, ‘I am okay with who I am and I will not be misled anymore’. It has taken lifetimes to get here.”

They’ve also released a video for ‘Monsters’, which you can check out below.

And that’s it for another week of a countdown of the best singles out in the world in the last week. Be sure to check back next-time for another round of great music videos.

Machine Head Release New Single, ‘My Hands Are Empty’

Bay Area metal titans MACHINE HEAD have released a new single “My Hands Are Empty,” today on Nuclear Blast. The song marks the first musical collaboration between MH mastermind Robb Flynn and original “Burn My Eyes” guitarist Logan Mader in 24 years.

Once again produced by Zack Ohren and Robb Flynn, and masterfully mixed by Colin Richardson, the accompanying video was directed by Mike Sloat / Roaring Mouse Productions and proved to be quite a challenge in the Covid-19-era, with Northern California health officials shutting down the shoot 24 hours prior, but ever the improvisers, were able salvage the whole affair, and the stunning results can be viewed below:

New Music Video Roundup 18/06/20

We’re back! We’re here for a roundup of ten of the best recently released music videos and sometimes a little information that comes with them! They’re not all within the same genre and they’re all different in some way or another but that means that there’s a little something for everyone here but come on, let’s get down to the music (videos)!

We’re going acoustic for our first pick this week with The Amazons with the UK tour video for ‘Mother’.

Matthew Thomson has said on the track:

“This video encapsulates everything we love about being in a band. Performing live is in our blood. When we tour, the music evolves.

“It was such a fun process looking back on our UK tour with Phoebe Fox as she put the video together. We hope we can join our fans again soon, and safely.”

Keeping things a little light for the next pick this week is the phenomenal Machine Gun Kelly. The other month, the release of ‘Bloody Valentine’ saw him collaborate with none other than Travis Barker where now an acoustic version has been released. This version of the track sees him playing guitar, all the while looking out at a sunset over LA.

Bloody Valentine is the first off MGK’s upcoming record, ‘Tickets To My Downfall’, which is set to be released on July 17th via Bad Boy / Interscope Records where the narrative will “revolve around a complex and seductive love story”.

Heading for British shores for the next pick of this week’s roundup, we have Luzzy Farrall.

This latest cut from her record, ‘Bruise’ is the track ‘Okay’. And it’s a home made video for this one to!

On the track, here’s what Lizzy said:

“‘Okay’ is what I’d call the interlude on the album. The lyrics are very personal and the performance on the track is very raw. The song itself is based around being stuck in your own head and being forced, because of life situations, to be independent but also discovering whilst doing so, just how much self-hate is actually present. This is also probably more relevant to me now than when I wrote the song.”

Moving to Remo Drive for our next pick of the week, and with the band’s third record, ‘A Portrait Of An Ugly Man’ released today, they released this video for ‘A Flower And A Weed’ just a few days in advance for its release.

Following the premiere over on Triple J, the Aussie powerhouses Hands Like Houses have a new cut in the form of ‘Space’.

This is the second release of material since their 2018’s ‘-Anon’, following on from the track, ‘Headspace’ which came out in March of this year.

Trenton Woodley (Vocals) has said:

“It’s weird to think that we wrote this song about emotional isolation and this sense of claustrophobia before any of this crazy year had gone down. It’s about this emotional collage of situations where I felt like I was going through the motions, grappling with exhaustion, trying to do the right thing but still coming up short of other people’s expectations… it was really important to me that the lyrics carried the weight of what I was singing about without getting caught in the specifics.

I wanted it to feel tired, but not hopeless. I wanted it to feel worn out, but not ready to give up yet. I didn’t want to sound like I’d stopped trying, I just wanted it to feel like coming out of a long silence to say, “Be patient, I can get this right. I just need a little more faith, a little trust and some space to get myself back together.””

Here’s some new Pop-Punk from those lads you either love or hate, Neck Deep!

Following on from the release of their new track ‘Fall’, they have a new video where they team up with a lot of skaters including Cordano Russell, Alex Dechuna, Roxana Howlett and more! There’s some skateboarding footage (of course) and some tour footage back from when they actually could.

Ben Barlow says:

“COVID-19 has made shooting videos all the more challenging. So, we looked at some of the things we love most: fucking around on tour and skateboarding. We decided to reach out to skaters that we have met along our touring journey, that we believe deserve some recognition, and give them a platform to display their amazing talents.

We’re switching things up to a heavy track now! The giants Machine Head have dropped a double digital single (wait. Is that even a thing?) where the double single suggests the two tracks act as protest anthems which were written after the murders of George Floyd and Ahmaud Arbery.

Here’s the video for the a side track ‘Stop The Bleeding’ which features Killswitch Engage frontman Jesse Leach.

Second to last video now for this week’s roundup pick and we have the British singer/songwriter Inklinks (whom is none other than the ex- Fearless Vampire Killers frontman Kier Kemp!) as he lifts another track off his upcoming ep, ‘Is This Who You Are?’.

Here’s what Kemp has said:

“‘Dizzy’ is a song for everyone that ever felt that they needed a new start. Sometimes it can feel like things change and you’re never going to be the same… but ultimately the song is about combating that idea head on. You’ve got this.”

‘Is This Who You Are?’ is set to be released on August 28th 2020 via Marshall Records.

I had to choose this track as the last one and you’ll know why when you see the name. This is Chester Bennington’s pre Linkin Park band, Grey Daze. The track, ‘B12’ is off their upcoming release ‘Amends’ which will feature vocals Chester actually recorded before his tragic passing.

There’s also an appearance from Korn’s Munky and Head.

And that’s it for another week of a countdown of the best singles out in the world in the last week. Be sure to check back next-time for another round of great music videos. If you have any suggestions for me to check out, be sure to send an email or message us via the socials on Facebook or Twitter!
