6CETTCWEPCOVERHIRESCROPPED

Gothic Metal Band THE SIXTH CHAMBER has released the official music video for “Entrance to the Cold Waste.” Filmed in the wastelands of Death Valley, CA, “Entrance to the Cold Waste” features STANTON LAVEY (grandson of Church of Satan founder / Satanic Bible author ANTON LAVEY, whose character featured prominently in this season’s AMERICAN HORROR STORY) and belly dancing by MAHAFSOUN.

With ‘Entrance to the Cold Waste’, we sought to create a portal of escape from the drab norms of daily reality we tend to become trapped in and provide passageway to a nightmare realm of sublime dreamscapes,” says Rahne Pistor, Sixth Chamber lead vocalist and founder. “I wanted to create a world as it exists within my deeper consciousness rather than as it seems in the confines of the waking world.” – Rahne Pistor

Behold the ancient rites of unspeakable black magic mystic horror!

Mythical Los Angeles gothic doom proto-metal mysterians The Sixth Chamber have completed a new single and music video nightmare trip – shot in the vast, tortured wastelands of Death Valley, California. Part Lovecraft and part Pasolini, the sonic and visual dream quest stars gothic metal bellydance YouTube sensation Mahafsoun as well as Stanton Lavey (grandson of Church of Satan founder/Satanic Bible author Anton Lavey) who aptly plays the role of a crude, heathen elder god. Directed by Constantin Werner.

THE SIXTH CHAMBER is a library in hell where all the world’s darkest secrets are kept in neatly arranged volumes on shelves. Band leader Rahne Pistor came up with the concept in 2001 inspired by the writings of 18th century mystic William Blake. Since that time the band has accumulated a long and storied recording legacy with gothic, metal, experimental, blues, psychedelic, fantasy/horror soundtrack and other musical and poetic influences evident in their sound. Themes generally focus on the mythic, mystic and phantasmic.

STANTON LAVEY is the grandson of Church of Satan founder and Satanic Bible author Anton Lavey. The resemblance to his iconic grandfather is uncanny. Stanton spends his time promoting Anton Lavey’s legacy and related principles of the Laveyan Satanist philosophy.

MAHAFSOUN, a Persian belly dancer and model, aptly describes herself as an escapist. She became a YouTube sensation as an early adopter of gothic metal bellydance and has shared the stage belly dancing live with revered metal acts including Moonspell, Epica and Ex Deo. Her style is mired in dark fantasy art, and she is currently one of the most easily recognizable Gothic fashion models of today.

I can’t believe that it’s been 20 years since I started this band back in 1997.
I couldn’t be more excited to share this unique package, along with the true / uncensored story of how it all begin.
This was something that only a small community of people in NYC were able to share with us, back in the day.
To be able to bring this to our fans all across the world 20 years later is surreal for me..
I designed the entire package myself and I went to great lengths to create something that our Die Hard fans would greatly appreciate.

Legendary MISFITS Guitarist Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein Releases Official Music Video for “Run For Your Life”

Legendary Misfits Guitarist Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein has released the Official Music Video for “Run For Your Life”. The video was directed by Brian Cox at Flarelight Films, and is the first single off of his upcoming As We Die LP (due out 6/2/2017 via Monsterman Records.

I did the guitars when I did the Abominator record. We did two albums at once, actually. We were going to do a double album but there was so much material we just cut the motherfucker in half. We were actually done with all the recording during February of 2016, and we were just having a real problem getting the mix right. We mixed for 14 fucking months…I’m out of my mind, man. It’s got to be perfect. It’s your product and you have to make it perfect, ’cause it’s forever. It’s got to be great. When my favorite artist makes a record and I don’t like it, I’m pissed, y’know? I don’t want anyone to feel that way about us. – Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein

Justin Symbol & The God Bombs Release Official Music Video for “GODHEAD”

Electronic rock group Justin Symbol & The God Bombs has released the Official Music Video for the title single, “GΩDHEAD”, off of their upcoming second album due out Fall. An homage to 70s psychedelic/occult film makers such as Alejandro Jodorowsky and Kenneth Anger.

Filmed in Joshua Tree, CA in June 2016–during an extreme heat wave that killed at least one person–and staring Justin Symbol, Will EvilJabbath Kadabra, and John Doll (aka The God Bombs), plus Ryan Frankenstein (of the band Our Frankenstein) and Angel Nightmare (of the band Midnight Nighmare), “GΩDHEAD” tells the story of Justin Symbol’s quest for a mystical cactus shaped microphone atop a mountain in Joshua Tree. He is challenged along the way by various evil forces attempting to thwart his conquest.
Justin Symbol & The God Bombs has also announced a Co-Headlining Tour w/Keychain (Zombie Shark Records).
With the release of debut album V Ω I D H E A D on Halloween 2014, electro-shock-rocker and self-proclaimed “King of Negativity” Justin Symbol emerged as a bold new force in the national rock scene. V Ω I D H E A D features co-founding Marilyn Manson guitarist Daisy Berkowitz and was accompanied by a U.S. tour in May 2015 with William Control. This buzz helped Symbol gain the attention of major music press and build a national cult following. In the year and a half that followed, the band continued to tour the U.S. with acts such as Blood On the Dance Floor and The Bunny The Bear. Justin Symbol & The God Bombs are currently in the studio working on their second full length album, GΩDHEAD, due in early 2017.
