Well, I’m afraid I need to take a break from our normal afternoon roll-out of the 2012 Most Infectious Extreme Metal Song list. I could explain why, but then I’d have to kill you. Well, I wouldn’t kill you myself. I’d send out a squad of ninja lorises. You’d probably die of old age before they got there.
Anyway, I do have something else for you. Actually, I have three new videos to share. Because time is short, I won’t say much about them other than to say I think you should watch and hear them.
This long-running doom/death band from The Netherlands have a new album due for release on Hammerheart Records. Its name is Mors Viri, and it was mixed by Ronnie Björnström. The album features vocals by long-time Officium Triste member Pim Blankenstein, and that’s basically all I needed to know.
The video is for a new song called “The Wounded and the Dying”. It’s really just the music, but doom fans will want to hear this. Listen:
I’ve said plenty about this band in the past. I love ’em. I included one of the songs from their 2012 album in our Most Infectious Song List for the year just ended. The new music video which debuted yesterday is for a different song, but it’s a hot shit song, too — “Path of Doom”. Cool fuckin’ video, too.
And if you still haven’t checked out Beg Upon the Light, what am I going to do with you? Two ninja loris squads? Three?
DIABLO SWING ORCHESTRA
This band released a new official music video today. The song is “Black Box Messiah”, which appears on their widely heralded 2012 album Pandora’s Pinata. I don’t love this band as much as a lot of you do, but I’m including this video because I know there are some die-hard fans of the album out there. Also, I thought this video was cool. If strobing imagery bothers you, you won’t think it’s cool.
