New Video Releases

With so much good metal coming out all the time, it can be difficult to keep up with what’s just arrived. Here are a few new music videos for your delectation and other big words.

 

Channel Zero – Duisternis

This thrash-groove song is billed as “the most Belgian song that’s ever existed.” It uses French, Dutch and English lyrics. The word “duisternis” means “darkness” in English. That’s a pretty good indication of what you’ll hear in this video. It’s taken from the album Kill All Kings, which is available now.

 

The Kut – Mario

The all-female trio have taken this track from their forthcoming EP, Make Up. They call their music grunge, although I’d say it’s more like post grunge. The theme of the song is described thus: “The idea of Mario was about frustration, with the industry and the scene. The concept that as kids we were made a lot of promises, but the reality is that all that’s left for us is a waste land. We are the forgotten generation.”

 

Unisonic – Exceptional

If you want clarity on what the new wave of heavy metal is all about and why it’s more accessible to younger metal fans, this track from Unisonic’s second album, Light of Dawn, encapsulates what you need to hear. Unisonic is a supergroup consisting of  former Helloween vocalist Michael Kiske and guitarist Kai Hansen (Gamma Ray, also ex-Helloween) alongside guitarist Mandy Meyer (Asia, Gotthard, Krokus), bassist Dennis Ward and drummer Kosta Zafiriou (both of Germany’s Pink Cream 69).

About ChristopherMammal

I've made it to Mammal. I still hope to be classified as Human one day. Meanwhile I have evolved enough to recognise different types of music as well as the shrieks of certain vervet monkeys who are known for their scurrilous behaviour in the proximity of unguarded bananas.
