The post title is our way of summing up two new videos we saw yesterday and a new song we just heard. We exercised a bit of literary license in doing that, but we know you’ll forgive us.
The first video is from The Burning — a Danish band whose 2010 album Hail the Horde we’ve had a blast listening to since it was released in November. We’ve previously featured the first video from that album, for the awesomely headbangable song “Bait the Hook” (go here for that). The Burning have now released a second video for the album’s title track. It’s a straight-ahead, no frills party anthem, and the video matches up quite nicely with the music — a montage of performance footage and behind-the-scenes clowning around.
The second video is for a song called “None Shall See” by a Swedish death metal band called My Own Grave. The songs comes off the band’s latest album, Necrology, which was produced by the ubiquitous Dan Swanö at Unisound and released on Pulverised records last July. We haven’t heard the album yet, but this song makes us want to. It’s old-school Swedeath with modern attention to hooks and grooves. And there’s lots of bleeding in the video, like the bleeding that would occur if someone hit you in the mouth with a brick.
And then there’s that new song, now available for free download, by The Project Hate MCMXCIX. It’s an epic-length, 12 1/2-minute offering that we won’t even attempt to sum up in words. So, get ready to party, bleed, and drown . . . after the jump.
In about 2 seconds, this video lets you know what you’re in for. It begins with a quotation from that great American philosopher, David Lee Roth, as follows: “Everyone has self-destructive habits, the trick is to find the 2 or 3 best ones and just do those all the time.” Ready for some heavy drinking, arm-wrestling, pit-smelling, tattooing, zit-popping, ass-mooning, stage-stomping, head-thumping, tongue-wagging, and more heavy drinking? Of course you are! Dive on in . . .
MY OWN GRAVE
And now for the bleeding, and the chainsawing of downtuned guitars, and more bleeding . . .

THE PROJECT HATE MCMXCIX
This Swedish/Portuguese band is on the verge of unleashing its seventh album, Bleeding The New Apocalypse (Cum Victriciis In Manibus Armis). It will be released on February 14, 2011 in Europe and February 22, 2011 in the U.S. via Season of Mist. Like the My Own Grave album, this CD was also mixed and mastered by Dan Swanö . It contains six songs with a running time of over 60 minutes.
This is one of those songs, called “Summoning Majestic War”. As you might expect from that six-song, 60-minute run time, it’s long. We’re not big fans of Ruby Roque’s clean power-metal vocals, but the rest of the song is pretty sick, and we know lots of you out there are big fans of this band. So, here you go. Time to drown.
If you want a legit free download of this song from Season of Mist, so you can listen to it whenever you want, after you’ve been partying and bleeding, right click on this link and save the file.
Not quite to sure what to make of The Burning. Its a great video, just not sure about the song.
And is there anyting in this world that Dan Swano touches that doesn’t turn to gold? I am a big fan of My Own Grave (bet that’s not a shock). Decent video to a really good song.
Project Hate. I really want to like this. I really do. But Rubie’s vocals are going to take some getting used to. I don’t know if they sampled or overdubbed or layered but at times that echo is really, really annoying (What where you thinking Mr Swano!?!? I guess everyting he touches doesn’t turn to gold. 🙁 ). I think she can increase that epic factor that they are constantly striving for, but they don’t need to do whatever they did to her vocals again. I am going to listen to this a couple more times and see if I can get past it. And then listen to the album when it drops see what happens.
