Listen to "The Coma Machine" by Between The Buried And Me

May 20, 2015 - 04:03

There is a new video out from Between The Buried and Me, entitled "The Coma Machine".  Even that most of their music can put you in one, this song is gives you a good taste of how the new album is turning out.  The new album 'Coma Ecliptic' will be out on July 7, 2015.

You can also listen to their previous single "Memory Palace"

Tommy Rogers, the vocalist for the band, had this to say about the new video:

This video is special to me because it looks beyond the story that is on the record. It showcases the character preparing for his journey and is him basically saying bye to his old demons/life. This footage adds dialogue to the story and I think that is very unique. Wes and crew did a wonderful job creating a world that works well with the song and uniquely showcases the depth of this unstable character.

Watch The New Video From Cradle Of Filth

May 20, 2015 - 03:48

The legendary band Cradle Of Filth has released a brand new video from their upcoming album 'Hammer Of The Witches'.  The new song is called "Right Wing Of The Garden Triptych".  The new album will be released on July 10, 2015 by Nuclear Blast Records.

Leadman of Cradle Of Filth Dani Filth had this to say about the new video:

The video for 'Right Wing Of The Garden Triptych' was an immense thrill to film as it was undertaken in a jet-engine testing hangar at a former U.S. Military base close to my home town of Ipswich, followed by an equally surreal afternoon spent under the aerobatic flightpath of the Imperial War Museum. Directed by Sam Scott-Hunter, the video is a realised phantasmagoria of horror and hell-bound heartistry, fully encapsulating the beautality of the first single from 'Hammer Of The Witches', and if my flagrant play-on-words doesn't pique your interest, then the fact that it features a renowned rope bondage queen and the band in full swing just possibly might.
