Italian Gothic Doom masters Motus Tenebrae release the new video off their album "Deathrising".
It is for the track "Desolation", and it's a new masterpiece of Gothic Doom Metal by one of the best bands in that genre.
The video, directed and edited by the great surreal artist Andrea Falaschi (http://fraterorion.deviantart.com), also drummer of the band, and Davide Frino, shows the decadent essence of a band celebrating one of the best and absolutely the darkest and gloomiest songs off "Deathrising".
The final result is a totally dark, dismal and dreary videoclip.
The Dutch symphonic metal stars EPICA are ready to release the second studio trailer for their upcoming masterpiece The Holographic Principle. In this new clip, the band shows its work and experimentation with many new instruments and how it affected the depth and diversity of their new sound: https://youtu.be/HzqHyRu1oSc
"Recording this album felt like being a kid in a candystore", states Keyboarder Coen Janssen. "Never before have we used more live-instruments. Recording them ourselves and hearing the music come 'alive' like that is an indescribable feeling! I'm sure these efforts make this album our best yet!"
In case you missed the first trailer, where EPICA spoke about their songwriting process and revealed their first song snippets, you can watch it here: https://youtu.be/LSlEVPjG7rg
EPICA's new masterpiece The Holographic Principle will be released via Nuclear Blast on September 30th, but you can already see the track-list here:

Fresh, dark and extremely powerful are only a few of the best ways to accurately describe Lacuna Coil’s latest opus 'Delirium', which encompasses the strength and heavy approach of thrash metal from the 90’s twisted with goth elements into a modern style. Now, the group proudly presents the album’s first official music video for its gripping title track 'Delirium' which was directed by Michael Winkler (iconographic).
Cristina Scabbia states: "We filmed our parts for this video in one evening while we were on the US tour this past May. We used a Go-Pro against a black backdrop and we wanted something that would be purposely rough, something that could remind some weird lost videos found after years and years.
The whole video edited together with the parts filmed by the director with an actress turned out as a very strange sort of a trip, where a girl tries to tight up memories and details together to try to find her sanity back, somehow. I really like some of the scenes as they reminded me some kind of Korean horror movies vibe and it is totally fitting the ‘Delirium' vibe and concept. It also leaves a lot to the imagination, so thanks for checking it out and enjoy."

Furthermore Weeping Silence will join Alpha Omega's two other roster bands, Cadaveria and Mechanical God Creation at “Voices Of The Succubi” (aka VOTS) – Female Fronted Metal Festival, set to take place on September 17th in Malta.
Gothic / Doom Metal band Weeping Silence, formed in 1998 in Malta, released their fourth album ‘Opus IV Oblivion‘ via Massacre Records, bringing together the best that Weeping Silence has to offer. Heavy, melodic, dark and full of ambience with doom-laden riffs. This album has already left its mark and received stellar ratings. It has been listed in Top 20 Best-of Albums of 2015 in several webzines. Over the years Weeping Silence appeared on-stage at numerous festivals and concerts, including UK dates with To-Mera, the Malta Doom Metal Fest, a tour in Benelux including Respect for Metal alongside Therion, Metaldays, Metal over Malta Fest and The Dames of Darkness Fest. Bookings for 2016 include January tour dates in France, Belgium and The Netherlands with Thurisaz, Gothoom Open Air Fest (Slovakia), Metal over Malta Fest, Metaldays (Slovenia), a November tour and others. Weeping Silence also organises and hosts the Metal over Malta Festival.
Sean (bass) states: "After what has been an incredible couple of years for Weeping Silence, playing shows across Europe and the release of our fourth studio album 'Opus IV Oblivion' late last year, we are thrilled to now announce our signing with Alpha Omega Management. We feel that they have the experience and vision to get Weeping Silence on the best international festivals and tours, and in so doing assure the band's best interests. Together we will undoubtedly achieve great things, and we look forward to many good times ahead!"
Alpha Omega Management adds:
"We're glad to welcome this great female fronted goth doom band to our family! Weeping Silence has been long around and their latest effort confirms that the band has still a lot to offer to their fans, and that new frontiers are soon to be reached, so stay tuned for next announcements!"
Italian “Vampiric Metal” legends Theatres Des Vampires are pleased to announce the release of their brand new album, ‘Candyland’, on October 14th via Scarlet Records. The album is produced and recorded by Christian Ice at Temple Of Noise Studio.
States the band:
"The new album has been inspired by a room of the infamous Pennhurst asylum in Pennsylvania, a room which was different from all the others, with coloured walls and bars on the windows, described as hell on earth by the patients of the facility, where adults and children with severe mental problems have been hidden from the public eye for decades. ‘Candyland’ was the name of that room.
Obsession and madness characterizes Theatres Des Vampires’ latest work, their sound is forceful and sensual at the same time, pervaded with those wistful and melancholic bursts which the band is renowned for."
