Video of the Week – Lead Into Demise

If you are a fan of Hatebreed, Down, and Crowbar there stands a chance that you might like Kingdom of Sorrow.  The band was formed by Jamey Jasta (Hatebreed) and Kurt Windstein (Down/Crowbar).  When you listen to a spin of Kingdom of Sorrow, you can definitely hear influences from their day jobs.  Kingdom of Sorrow has released two albums so far with this particular song, Lead Into Demise, appearing on the most recent album Behind The Blackest Tears released in 2010.

The video itself is nothing special; just the guys playing is what looks like a warehouse or parking garage.  Sometimes nothing more is necessary; band footage is always good.  As for the song, it a nice wake up in the morning and throw a chair kind of song.  Have a great weekend and enjoy the Video of the Week.  What do you think of the song?

SOTD for 27 October 2010

My bad for missing out on posting the 25 OCt SOTD.  My unique work schedule this week caused a lapse in better judgment…I basically forgot.  Thank you to Yungviticus for picking up the slack.  Do you want to start off your day on a heavy note?  Today’s SOTD comes from a Hatebreed-Crowbar mix:

Monuments of Ash by Kingdom of Sorrow off the Behind the Blackest Tears album.

Have a great humpday!
