This post will be atypically short on words and long on audio-visual content. I saw three brand new videos this morning that I thought were worth sharing. I’m going to arrange these in ascending order of length, from shortest to longest.
On the short end of this stick, we’ve got the new video from Toxic Holocaust for a song called “Judgment Awaits You”. It’s from their new Relapse records release, Conjure and Command. Short, brutish, punk-thrash from a PNW band who have grown on me more and more as time passes. Thanks to BlankTV for premiering this baby.
In the middle of this line-up is a new live video from Arch Enemy for the song “Bloodstained Cross”. The song is from their 2011 Century Media release, Khaos Legions. Yes, I confess: I have always had a crush on Angela Gossow. Does that make me weak? The video intersperses cuts of live shows from all over, with the audio from the album track. It was premiered by Revolver earlier today at this location.
The last and longest piece of vid is an August 24 live performance by Krallice of the song “Telluric Rings” from the band’s 2011 Profound Lore album Diotima, which our bro BadWolf eloquently reviewed for us here. If after all of our harping about Krallice here at NCS you still haven’t taken the plunge, now’s a good time to get wet. One of the best American black metal albums of the year, in my halfwitted opinion. The vocals are sort of drowned out on this vid, but otherwise the audio quality is decent, and the video is pro-shot.
So, that’s it for the words. All three videos are lined up for you after the jump. Enjoy the rest of your fucking day.
I’ve always loved Toxic Holocaust. Crossover at it’s finest.
“Khaos Legions” is the living proof Arch Enemy needs to hang the shit up and quit. But what do I know? I’m the asshole in the back of the room shouting at them to get Johan Liiva back on vocals. STILL.
I’ve never heard Krallice before but I love this. Will have to check this album out.
I enjoyed the Arch Enemy video. They’re still doing things their way. Still need to check the other two, but I’m sure they don’t disappoint.
