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.
