“Black Hole Quantum Thermodynamics” was the first track written for WIZARDTHRONE, and encapsulates the deadliest facets of Extreme Wizard Metal. What better way to celebrate the momentous release of Hypercube Necrodimensions than bestowing a gift of this sort upon the Earth? Such a relentless and brutal song would surely need to be mirrored by an equivalent spectacle, and so it was that we entrusted the venerable videomage J. “Iconoclast” Nageer with this daunting task. Never before has the blasphemous allure of the boundless abyss been portrayed with such devastating accuracy! Xhul praises all who have waited patiently for this release, and assures you that diabolical forces are already in motion to further unleash the might of WIZARDTHRONE.”

Ambient Composer Mattia Capelli Releases Ruins Lp, Share ‘Chant’ Video

Ambient-electronic producer Mattia Cupelli has released RUINS LP on the 9th of July via MC Records. Fans will also find the previously released gently nourishing ‘CHANT’ which will be accompanied by an artistic video. Listeners will also find IRIS accompanied by a conceptual video, ‘MONOLITH’ which was paired with an eerie video and the provocative single ‘EGERIA’ which has been playlisted by NPR Music radio stations. Cupelli has received support from the tastemaker publications including CLASH Magazine, XLR8R, Son Of Marketing, Mxdwn, La Repubblica and XS Noize, to name a few. In total, the producer has earned over  76 million plays on Youtube and Spotify alone with features on the Sir Chillicious and  Reveral Music Youtube channels and La Belle Musique’s Spotify Playlist to boot.

Hailing from Rome, Italy, the producer seeks inspiration in the classics, calling upon the likes of Nils Frahm, Nicolas Jaar, Ryuichi Sakamoto. As he creates his own unique style, Mattia Cupelli uses neo-classical influences and modern concepts, blurring the line between electronic and organic. Calling to mind the likes of Tim Hecker, Ben Frost and Forest Swords, the producer manages to create fantasy worlds within his music.

As Mattia Cupelli has been slowly revealing his album, a chord of storytelling laden with mythicism and adventure rings throughout. Striding into the harsher, darker territories of the ambient world, RUINS manages to create its home somewhere been a contemplation of time meeting an ambivalence of the future and a nurturing hope for both the world and the inner soul. ‘IRIS’ reveals a softer side to the album, gently blossoming and drawing the listener into its folds as an elderly woman would do with a young child. The video uses simple imagery of dried flowers, with elements of colour tastefully included to highlight the rich textures of nature.

Speaking of the inspiration behind the album, Mattia Cupelli tells us: “RUINS came to life when I decided to finally reinvent and innovate myself. I started to reflect on the meaning of Time, and how this reflects in our lives. The music reacts to the controversy and contradiction of moving in this and trying to make sense of this dimension. I also find it fascinating to compare this with all humans that reflected are in these themes throughout the centuries. So, I made it through the abstract concept of Art, and with ancient stories from classic mythology.”

Montyfear Release New Music Video ‘Circus Called Life’

Finnish Seinäjoki-based metal band Mortyfear released their second studio album My Dystopia. The album is recorded and mixed by Riku Metsä-Ketelä at Finnvox Studios/Rmksound and it is mastered by Svante Forsbäck (Rammstein, Amorphis, Apocalyptica, etc.) at Chartmakers. To celebrate the album release, the band also released a new music video Circus Called Life.

Check out the video below.

Vocalist Janne Keskitalo comments:
“We are thrilled that the release day is finally here. We have been excited about seeing the reviews the album has already gotten and now it gets to be heard by all the people.The songs of the new album ”My dystopia” are the result of a process that we like to call “the blender”. That means that any of us can compose new music and throw it to blender and try anything with it. Then we discuss about it and maybe give it a one more spin in the blender. The recording process took some time and required a lot of effort of since we wanted to experiment with the songs and sounds. Although we had no boundaries when making the album, a certain insanity and evilness travels throughout the record making it a coherent entirety. The sound of Mortyfear has changed quite a bit since earlier releases but you can hear the dark vibes that are integrated to this band as a legacy. 

”You see the people whose only connection to the world is through social media. The only thing to achieve in life is popularity. For whatever the price. And others that don’t want it are freaks? I had a vision on the songs vocal line and how would I want it to sound like and to give the dissonance it needs to back up the story of living the life but hating still every part of it. We had it recorded in one take so we could capture the total insanity during the recording of it. We all connected to this song really hard. It also gave us the full push to make our sound something not so familiar and what has not be heard. We took it for a wild blender ride and gave it layers and ideas more and more until we got it down a little bit to a perfect amount of insanity and horror.”

Redhook Reveal Frenzied Video For ‘Kamikaze’

Sydney-based alternative-rock trio RedHook have just unveiled their hyperactive video clip for ‘Kamikaze feat. Will King’ – filmed, directed and edited by Brandon Lung (Stand AtlanticPolaris) with assistance from Yeah Rad Creative (The Dead LoveFANGZ).

Shot at various locations around Sydney’s inner west, the clip features all three band members performing the song in a flurry of feverish visuals, including kaleidoscopic effects and hysterical strobe lights. Featuring frantic quick cut shots, a penetrating colour scheme and extreme energy, the music video is a thrilling encapsulation of the song’s chaotic nature.

Lead singer Emmy Mack comments on the clip:

“Because this song is so fast-paced and aggro, we shelved our trademark kooky narratives and went for a more aesthetic, performance-based clip to capture some of the intensity and haywire energy of our live show and the song itself. The frenetic camera movements and dizzying lighting techniques reflect the themes of impending danger as the song’s protagonist hurtles towards their destruction.

Embarrassingly, I ended up in the ER after we filmed it from going a bit too hard trying to do a bunch of jumps and kicks in these giant emo platform boots and stacking it big time – thought I’d fractured my hand!”

Andrew W.K. Reveals Metallic New Track, ‘Everybody Sins’

Napalm Records and ANDREW W.K. recently announced the impending release of the iconic Party God’s fifth full-length studio rock album, God Is Partying. The long-awaited nine track opus of maximalist grandeur is set for release on September 10, 2021 – nearly 20 years after the release of his chart-topping full-length debut, I Get Wet.​           

Today, following the respective unveilings of his two bombastic new singles Babalon” and “I’m In Heaven”, the one and only party-rock icon is back with another rager, this time in the form of the triumphant and metallic, “Everybody Sins”. The hard charging track soars as a certified future hit with its divine harmonic attack juxtaposed with monster guitar riffs and undeniable vocal melodies.  

ANDREW W.K. says:  
”When we started working on the video for ‘Everybody Sins’, the director and I were scheming and straining over some of the choreography and camera moves. Now, I do realize some people will say life’s too short to scheme and strain like this. And others will say life’s too short NOT to scheme and strain. Still, other people will say both these approaches are incorrect. And what do I say? Everything I just said in the video for ‘Everybody Sins’.”

Check out the video for ‘Everybody Sins’ below.

Hovering in the fluorescent spotlight of his legendary party power, God Is Partying sees ANDREW W.K. ransack the corners of the human psyche, reaching a triumphant apex in his catalog. Emotive yet steadfast, ominous yet invigorating, God Is Partying embraces both the break-ups and break-downs of life, and ANDREW W.K. once again provides his audience with the perfect soundtrack to celebrate life in all its perplexing and euphoric intensity.​

New Zealand’s highest streaming rock band, WRITTEN BY WOLVES, have recruited Trenton Woodley of Hands Like Houses for a reimagined version of track ‘Better Luck Next Time‘ and a corresponding cinematic music video.

In addition to Woodley, Kellin Quinn (Sleeping With Sirens), Sonny Sandoval (P.O.D.), and others have collaborated on tracks for the EP.

Written By Wolves vocalist Michael Murphy says, “The Collab Project is an on-going initiative to try and spread awareness, and to remind our fans and our followers, that no matter what they are going through, no matter what mental health struggles or demons they are going through right now, they don’t have to do it alone and they don’t have to deal with it on their own.” He adds, “The aim is to help normalise talking about our mental health issues and to help to breakdown the stigma attached to mental health.” Watch the band’s video explanation of The Collab Project here.
