Finnish progressive metal act External have released a new single, "Anhedonia". It’s their first release with guitarist Roger Lundberg, as well as the first with major songwriting contribution from bassist Samuel Järvinen. In the mixing process External worked with Asger Mygind from the Danish band Vola. The song is accompanied by a music video by Tuomas Ikonen.
Check the music video: https://youtu.be/cFwLNvGirUQ
Listen to the single:
The band states:
"We're extremely proud to share Anhedonia with the world. We chose this song as a single, since we thought it has a satisfying balance between things that define our current sound - groove, heaviness, softness, complexity and accessibility. Lyrically, the song is about losing all the colours from your life, feeling no enjoyment or pleasure from anything. Amidst all, the chorus is a plea to keep fighting and not to give up. It was truly an honour to work with one of our musical inspirations, Asger Mygind (Vola), in the mixing process. The greatest of thanks go to him, Samu Oittinen, Tuomas Ikonen and all the talented people involved for doing such an amazing job, as well as to our friends and families for their constant support!"

Australian Deathcore merchants Thy Art Is Murder release brutal official music video for new single, 'Death Squad Anthem'
Thy Art Is Murder have delivered another master lesson in brutality via their new single / video 'Death Squad Anthem'. A champion for the youth who are fed up with the current political system, 'Death Squad Anthem' is the second cut lifted from their earth-scorching fifth record, Human Target, set for release on July 26 via Nuclear Blast (ROW) and Human Warfare (AU/NZ). Watch here: https://youtu.be/uw_qPfgTxuI
Guitarist Andy Marsh comments:-
"'Death Squad Anthem' is a blazing examination of the current state of politics riddled with hyperactive virtue signalling, extremism and disenfranchisement. The despondency of 'Death Squad Anthem' is brought to life with stark socio-political traumatic scenes of warfare, genocide, police states, brutality famine and riots interspersed with those at the helm of the atrocities."

Spanish Melodic Death Metallers SynlakrosS have published their new video 'Fatal Frame' back on May 30th. This single is the second of their latest work 'Malice Murder', which was released on 18th October 18, 2018.
The band already announced that this new work has damned souls that can’t escape from hell as inspiration, and they have captured this essence in this song and video, which is a descent into hell. This is the darkest work of SynlakrosS so far. The song hasa frantic rhythm and a catchy melody that tells us the story and the pain of a tormented soul, a young girl caught in terror who seeks her brother to escape with him, but it is impossible, they are in hell.
An explosive theme, with strong rhythms, with Melodic Death Metal base but with the characteristic personal touch of the band.
The video was made by Sergio Mangas Murcia and Bárbara Navarro Soler, the team that made their video 'Colony'; has gathered more than a million and a half views, being the most watched video of 2018 from a Spanish Metal band.
They have depicted the atmosphere of the theme through very careful photography, as well as
costumes and props that come to life thanks to a good acting cast.

The audio has been produced and edited by Facundo Novo (Novo Estudios), who produced the third album of the band.
Finnish Technical Death metal act De Lirium’s Order released their fourth album Singularity on April 26, 2019 via Inverse Records. Ayatollah is the third single of Singularity, and comes accompanied with a music video.
Watch the music video here: https://youtu.be/6y7MFmAI2RM
De Lirium’s Order was formed in 1998 by guitarist Juha Kupiainen and today, it is one of the most praised groups in technical death metal. Drawing inspiration also from thrash and progressive metal, De Lirium’s Order is known for their creative, experimental guitar riffs, solos and drum patterns. The current line-up consists of musicians from the acts like Abbath, Omnium Gatherum and Raskasta Joulua. The band’s previous album release Veniversum (2012) got a much awaited continuum with Singularity which opened new musical pathways for the band through the album’s futuristic, ambitious concept.
Guitarist Juha Kupiainen comments on Ayatollah:-
“While the rise of The Monolith is awaiting behind the door, the human race is battling with cultural clash between Middle-East and West. Scarcity of resources, changing environment and increasing inequality among others limit their focus. A man who has lost his family to a drone strike seeks for revenge while the other part has technological superiority. With their short sight and vanity, mankind is hearing the first echoes of their doom.”

Vietnamese Prog Metalcore outfit Windrunner unveil double music videos for both "Mulan" & "Oleander"
Vietnamese progressive metalcore act Windrunner have just dropped a double music video for the tracks "Mulan" and "Oleander." The songs were included on their most recent and critically acclaimed LP titled 'MAI'.
Click here to watch the new music video for "Mulan" and "Oleander" on Dreambound
Demonstrating the band's ability to fuse crushing djent and melodic metalcore, both "Mulan" and "Oleander" are absolute bangers with an equal 'go crazy in the moshpit' to 'sing along during the chorus' appeal. As the rhythm section builds up a ferocious metallic storm, vocalist Duong Bui breaks through the clouds harnessing both brutal screams and lush cleans. This music video captures the raw and energetic performance by the act.
Windrunner is a progressive metalcore quintet hailing from Hanoi, Vietnam. Founded in early 2015 from the merger of two renowned Vietnamese metalcore bands: Epione and Alive In Sight, Windrunner quickly made a name for themselves with their unique blend of rhythm and melodies, groovy yet intricate riffs, soothing ambience, melodic guitar lines, coupled with catchy vocal choruses from female vocalist Duong Bui. Their debut EP “Vui” was released in June 2015 and received positive acclaims from around the world.
Since then, Windrunner has actively toured around Vietnam, South East Asia and South Korea, supporting bands such as Attila, Secrets, Benighted, Hiss From The Moat, Coldburn, King Ly Chee, Born From Pain, Earthists, and many others. Most recently, they served as the opener for Emmure.

"Horns up headbangers! Bust out the spikes and whip out those bullet belts. Coming at you like a leather studded nuclear bomb is the blazing title track off the brand new album, Afterburner. This is the bastard child of Judas Priest and Motorhead at their devastating best, so crank the volume to 11 and kiss your neck goodbye. It's fast, it's furious, it's metal and it sure as hell doesn't fuck around. Time to succumb to the fury of the Afterburner!"
