Marshall Beck’s Reign Of Vengeance Releases Their New Video “In The Club With A Chainsaw”

Death Metal artists Reign Of Vengeance announce the release of the new video for their song “In The Club With A Chainsaw”.

The video footage which was previously vaulted and hidden due to pressing legal matters and was later recovered from the darkest corner of vocalist Marshall Beck’s garage and edited by renowned music video director and producer Matt Zane (Zakk Wylde, DOPE, John 5, Combichrist)

There is nothing intellectual, political, or meaningful about this song or music video. It is straight across non-politically correct gore soaked and horror filled brutality for the sake of itself. If that bothers you then let REIGN OF VENGEANCE know and we’ll dig you a safe space…(a grave).
Marshall Beck Vocalist/Founder

To commemorate the release of the video, Reign In Vengeance released a multi-pack which includes a special edition t-shirt, their album Disemboweling Swine on CD, and a DVD which includes the “In The Club With a Chainsaw” and “She’s Best Kept Headless” music videos and studio recording webisodes.

Empyrean Throne Releases Music Video “Sed Nomini Tuo Da Gloriam” From Their Upcoming Album ‘Chaosborne’

Lake Forrest, CA Symphonic Black Metal Artists Empyrean Throne have released the music video for their song “Sed Nomini Tuo Da Gloriam” off their upcoming debut album Chaosborne, out August 11th on M-Theory Audio.

The video for Sed Nomini Tuo Da Gloriam was directed by renowned music video director Matt Zane (Zakk WyldeJohn 5DOPECombichrist).

“Sed Nomini Tuo Da Gloriam” is the catalyst for our narrative arc within our album ‘Chaosborne.’ The song encompasses the legendary Battle of Montgisard during the 10th century Ayyubid-Crusader War. We wanted to bring the horrors of that battle to life with our story’s main character, Mathias, an idealistic Templar. Within the song, his worldview is shattered, as he is utterly unprepared for the ensuing madness upon the killing fields of Montgisard in addition to the true nature of his brothers among his knightly order. We also wanted to explore that darkness that lurks within mankind, what we call the “Shadow Self.” Director Matt Zane and I talked about how we wanted to bring these concepts to life, while showing the struggle of a Templar confronted with the consequences of the Crusades as he is tormented by the souls of the vanquished. Zane and the rest of the cast and crew were an absolute pleasure to work with. We couldn’t have been more pleased with the end product. We hope you enjoy the latest offering from our debut album, ‘Chaosborne.’ –Andrew Knudsen / Lead Vocals

Empyrean Throne’s debut album Chaosborne was produced by Mick Kenney (Anaal Nathrakh) and features artwork by Valadislav Kutusov.

Pre-Order Chaosborne HERE

Empyrean Throne is a Clandestine Order of chaos gnostic Black Metal practitioners, an endeavor stoked in the fires of inspiration and forged with the hammer of hard experience. While indisputably an American band, the initial spark was in fact ignited by two travelers in Scandinavia, from where it journeyed south and west to the sweltering heat of Lake Forest, California, where in 2011, the first manifestation of the band that would eventually become Empyrean Throne was founded.

Empyrean Throne’s very first recorded music took the form of the ravenous “Demonseed” EP in 2013, with a sound described by OC Weekly as “a vicious mix of raw black metal and traditional death metal” coupled with the haunting strains of a real, organic cello choir, signifying the birth of the band’s trademark approach to composition. With the spoils reaped from this first offering; coupled with favorable reviews from MetalBite.comThe Kosher Metal Blog, and MetalAssualt.com, the Order of Empyrean Throne was still hardly content to stand still, as still so much lay in wait on the road ahead.

In the years that followed, the members of the Order underwent various ordeals that tested their merit as artists and human beings. Grueling punishment, loss, facing one’s darkest fears, and even encounters with that which some may venture to call divine proved necessary to shape Empyrean Throne into what it was to become: a sonic conduit for Chaos. Indeed a gateway leading inwards and backwards, elevenfold, towards that great intangible place and power. Ave Magnum Chaos.

Empyrean Throne’s upcoming first full-length release, “Chaosborne”, is a testament to this new unfolding, lurching deeper into the infernal depths of Black Metal and higher unto the celestial realm of orchestral concert music. Telling the story of a hapless Templar knight in medieval Europe and his subsequent decent into the realm of Chaos, the album offers eleven solemn hymns to unbecoming, with the searing Black Flame of illumination and wrath burning brighter than ever before in the hearts of those who have crafted it, the members of the Order themselves.

Empyrean Throne have been privileged to fly their banners and leave their mark on the live front alongside many of the esteemed acts in extreme music, including Nile, Kataklysm, Aborted, Shining, and Cattle Decapitation, among others. The Order has also carved its sphere of influence from the sweat and grime of the road, with two west coast tours under their belts and an appearance at Central Oregon Metalfest in 2016. Apart from that and a smattering of singles, which include a vast rendition of the Behemoth classic “Ov Fire and the Void”, Empyrean Throne have been quite occupied indeed preparing the ground for “Chaosborne”, and for whatever may lie beyond…

INTO CHAOS. TOWARDS THE BEYOND. EVER VIGILANT.

DOPE Teases ‘Blood Money Part 2’ with Cover of Ministry’s “Thieves” Feat. Andy LaPlegua of Combichrist

Dope is hinting at their upcoming album Blood Money Part 2 by releasing a brand new video for their cover of Ministry’s Industrial / Metal classic “Thieves” featuring Andy Leplegua of Combichrist.

The two bands are currently co-headlining the Black Craft Whisky sponsored Blood Lust Death Tour.

“To celebrate the release of Thieves, we are inviting our fans to rob us”  Says Edsel Dope.

“Thieves” can be downloaded for free HERE.

The pointed, yet hilarious, video takes shots at a number of leaders throughout our history, and ultimately climaxes with a ridiculous parody of Donald Trumpgrabbing Hillary Clinton by the pussy, followed by the two having sex while chugging wine and eating a well done steak..

“Like many people, I wasn’t pro Hillary, nor was I pro Trump”. Says Edsel. “I’m pro America and all of the politicians appear to be crooked in one way or another… As a result., we had a good time throwing all of them under the bus in this video.”

Dope’s Blood Money Part 1 was released In October 2016, where it debuted at number 27 on the Bilboard top 200 album chart..

The release date for the highly anticipated follow up Blood Money Part 2 has yet to be announced, but this new track is a sign that it might be coming sooner rather than later…

“I’m not a fan of cover songs” says Andy. “When Edsel reached out to me about doing ‘Thieves’ together I was really skeptical – but in the end I think we do the mighty Ministry justice… and I’m sure Uncle Al will love the video!” – Andy Leplegua

September Mourning Release Official Music Video for “20 Below” Off of Debut LP, ‘Volume II’

septembermourning_2016

The Dark Alternative, Hard Rock Transmedia Project September Mourning have released their Official Music Video for “20 Below” off of their debut full length album, Volume II, which is out now on Sumerian Records.  “20 Below” follows the continuing story of human-reaper hybrid ‘September’ through parallel story lines as she is pursued between two worlds.

“20 Below is about ending the cycle of abuse within our own lives, whether it’s self inflicted or from an outside source. We’ve all had those relationships where someone has gotten close to us, abuses us in some way… knocks us down so hard it diminishes our self esteem. “20 Below” is about the realization that the beat down feeling and feelings of worthlessness are untrue and being caused by some external negativity. It’s about being strong enough within your own self to rise above. There are no saviors or Messiah coming to save us. There’s only the strength in our hearts and our souls, which is greater than we can even conceive. It’s great enough to be the catalyst to save our own selves if we find a way to tap into that part of ourselves. – September

September Mourning is also gearing up to join Dope and Combichrist as direct support on their Blood Lust Death Tour with Davey Suicide opening.

DOPE Releases Official Music Video For “Hold On”

Dope_Promo_2016

DOPE has released their Music Video for the first Official Single, “Hold On,” off of their long anticipated Blood Money Part 1 LP. Edsel Dope co-directed “Hold On” alongside his old friend and acclaimed video director Dale Rage Resteghini.

“I think that it’s fair to say that Dope is one of the more evolved bands from our genre & time period,” says Edsel. “Our new single, ‘Hold On,’ is a great example of this. It sounds like Dope, but it is clearly, very modern, and in no way reflects a band who is stuck in its past. The hooks are melodic and memorable, while the musicianship is on full display. I’m very proud of Dope’s ability to walk that evolutionary line.”

Dope_BloodMoney_CoverScheduled to release 10/28 Via Entertainment One (eOne Music), Blood Money Part 1, along with a plethora of bundle packages, meet and greets, and exclusive new merch designs is available to pre-order at www.DopeTheBand.com, is available to pre-order NOW.

 

“This is by far, the most personal & vulnerable piece of art that I’ve ever released,” says Edsel. “Unlike some of Dope’s more theatrically driven works, “Hold On” is totally uninhibited, it is a reflection of my own personal story, told through a singular piece of art. Truthfully, this was a very difficult piece for me to complete at times; but, in the end, it has also been a very healing experience. I hope that the vulnerability and sincerity will resonate with people “.
