The band comments on the video:
“You ever been to one of those parties where you feel like you’re on top of the world? Well this isn’t one of those parties. Welcome to Barn Burner! Where the drinks aren’t free and the girls ain’t pretty. Get ready for a night full of hazards, disasters, and bastards where there’s no going home! Barn Burner is This Gun for Hire‘s party jam that doesn’t let up, even for a second. Delving into the Canadian atmosphere of bush and house parties. You better dust off those dancing shoes and buckle up for a wild… ish ride. Special thanks to Kris Hellstrom for creating another awesome video for us.”
This Gun For Hire recorded 'Something A Little More Sinister' with engineer and producer Roger Swan (K-OS, Battle Axe) to present their first clutch of original songs to showcase to the world. The twelve track release displays a keen awareness of pace and dynamics. Moving deftly from the seething chaos of the eponymous opener to the grandiose and melodic epic of "To The Fallen And The Faithful', and back again for the staccato grunt of 'Barn Burner' to finish the record, This Gun For Hire leave you in little doubt as to their capabilities.
'Something A Little More Sinister' will be available through iTunes, Amazon and CD Baby.

Carach Angren are now unveiling the first stunning track of their forthcoming new album. The Dutch masters of horror metal have entitled their new haunting 'Dance and Laugh amongst the Rotten' and the release date has been slated for June 16th.
The song "Song for the Dead" is exclusively streaming via the official premiere partners listed below.
Heavy Mag (AU)
Metal Hammer (DE)
Radio Metal (FR)
Lángoló Gitárok (HU)

Carach Angren comment: "After months of hard work we proudly reopen the doors to our haunted mansion to reveal the first deadly taste of our upcoming concept album. A unique horror story as you all expect and deserve from us, we consider this as one of the most terrifying tracks that we have created so far."
Carach Angren are furthermore revealing the cover art by renowned Romanian artist Costin Chioreanu and track-list of 'Dance and Laugh amongst the Rotten', which can both be viewed below.
The Dutch masters of horror are back with their most flamboyant album so far. On 'Dance and Laugh amongst the Rotten', Carach Angren are painting musical pictures that easily combine the grandiose depth of a Rembrandt with Van Gogh's maelstrom of whirling colours and the utter madness of Bosch. This lusciously seductive danse macabre will drag you in and never let go.
Carach Angren have employed all the sonic colours on their palette to dazzling effect. Their trademark whipping guitars are weaving harsh melodies and sinister soundscapes, which are beautifully contrasted by opulent keyboards and majestic orchestrations. That Till Lindemann (Rammstein) and Peter Tägtgren (Pain) have called upon the composition talent of Clemens "Ardek" Wijers is a telling sign of his outstanding mastery of the craft. Another signatory counterpoint is provided by Seregor's fierce rasping and shrieking vocals. Adding to the impact, Namtar has become a relentless driving force with his hard hitting yet intricate drumming. Each track on this album is a highlight on its own, while combined 'Dance and Laugh amongst the Rotten' simply shines.
