Imminence Records' Australian gothic/industrial hard rock outfit The Creptter Children has released their first music since "Watching You" on Halloween 2016. The band has just premiered the title track from their forthcoming Asleep With Your Devil EP that will be released January 12th on Imminence Records. The forthcoming five track EP will also feature a new version of "Watching You."
"Asleep With Your Devil to me is just the beginning of oeuvre and artistic expression that will follow. This new EP offers fans a tantalising sample of the direction The Creptter Children’s musical journey will take them too in the future. After spending many long nights working very hard in the studio on this EP, I was quite pleased to hear the end result. As an artist I can be my own worse critic and will always pick out my flaws. However, I can say I was rather content with the final product and look forward to the next endeavour. My mind never sleeps and I ‘am putting together new song ideas as we speak.” - Iballa Chantelle (Vocalist)

The Creptter Children are a gothic/industrial hard rock band currently based in Melbourne, Australia. They originated from Perth in 2006 by founding members Iballa Chantelle (vocals/guitars) and N8oR (guitars/synth). They released their debut album, entitled Possessed, back in 2010 before touring in the US during 2011. Shortly thereafter they took a hiatus before reappearing in 2016 and quickly catching the attention of American label Imminence Records. They announced their signing with the release of their “Watching You” music video on Halloween of that year.
Renowned for their catchy hooks and dark fashion sense, which stem from the dark and twisted mind of Iballa Chantelle, the band brings to their fans (also known as “Freaks”) her message of creativity, open mindedness, and positive reflection towards spirituality and the supernatural. With influences from Behemoth, Marilyn Manson, and Rob Zombie while being endorsed by Ibanez Guitars and Vampress Fashion, The Creptter Children are ready to take 2018 by storm with a new EP and a label backing them.

Pioneer of exotic guitar Marty Friedman released his stunning, critically-acclaimed full-length opus, Wall Of Sound, this past summer via Prosthetic Records. The album can be ordered here: http://smarturl.it/MartyFriedman
Now, Marty Friedman has revealed a second music video from Wall Of Sound, this time for the track "Miracle". The track tells the story of Marty's personal journey from an everyday kid to virtuoso, through a series of candid family home videos and photos from the Friedman family. Watch the video now, exclusively via Loudwire: http://loudwire.com/marty-friedman-miracle-exclusive-video-premiere/
"Once you have grown up in this complicated world, it`s easy to forget the simpler times that were so important in making you who you are now, as well as the people in your family who put up with all of the loud music, smoke and noise coming from your bedroom, and all the other BS that you put them through. With this video, rather than looking at how much of a goofy kid I was, I hope that it inspires you to think about your own family or whoever was closest to you when you were just starting out in the world." says Friedman.
While online, check out another music video for the track "Whiteworm", which has racked up nearly 400k views: https://youtu.be/pXECaAsYD-s
Wall Of Sound expands and destroys any conventional notions of instrumental music. The album was produced by Friedman, engineered by Paul Fig (Ghost, Rush, Alice in Chains) and mixed by Jens Bogren (Lamb of God, Opeth). Once again, Marty Friedman assembled an incredible and diverse group of musicians to record and guest on Wall Of Sound. His core recording band is made up of Anup Sastry, a modern whiz kid sharing drum duties with uber-veteran Gregg Bissonette, and Japanese musician Kiyoshi - who is undisputedly one of the most aggressive bassists on earth. Guests include Jinxx of Black Veil Brides and Shiv Mehra of Deafheaven, and Jorgen Munkeby of Shining lends his voice to the only non-instrumental track on the album.
Marty Friedman was recently appointed a Japanese Heritage Ambassador by the Japanese Government Ministry of Cultural Affairs to promote the country`s upcoming Olympic games. He is currently filming a documentary, and his biography is set to be published soon.
Imminence Records'' Melbourne based melodic death metal outfit Aetherial is pleased to unleash their new music video. The track, entitled "The Insignificance Of Us," is the fourth track on the band's recently released debut album The Still Waters of Oblivion. The twelve track album was released November 10th on Truth Inc. Records (Oceania and parts of Asia) and Imminence Records (rest of the world).
"We shot the video on Lake Mountain which is about two hours north east from Melbourne in Victoria’s Alpine Region. The scenery in that region is spectacular and the mountain overlooks a magnificent gully filled with stark white trees for as far as you can see. There was actually a devastating fire in 2009 that destroyed the nearby town and a large portion of the forest on the mountain which has left a vast dead looking forest below the cliffs, it’s definitely a haunting landscape.
We wanted to convey a sense of space and distance in the video in keeping with the concepts of the song with the aerial shots, whilst also maintaining consistency with the album art and lyric video imagery. "The Insignificance of Us" explores the concept of our own mortality and the fact that the world will continue whether we are in it or not. Its about realising the insignificance of us all in relation to infinite space and time but remaining positive and actually living, not just existing, but living your life. So the song is dark yet hopeful!” - Shep Sheppard (Vocalist).

Brutally fierce, crushing and relentless, Aetherial forge a uniquely dark and devastating sound. Combining elements of melodic death and traditional metal, formidable vocals, intense guitar riffs and epic harmonies define this brutal act from Melbourne, Australia. Lyrically, Aetherial explores the darkest recesses of the soul; exposing what is lurking behind the false reality of everyday life. The stark look beyond the restraints of social and cultural boundaries examine forces surrounding and influencing the human condition.
Aetherial’s music and commanding presence on stage attracted the attention of New York based Extreme Management Group Inc. which lead to inking a worldwide management deal and solidifying Aetherial on a roster alongside heavyweights Suffocation, Cattle Decapitation, Cryptopsy, Origin and fellow Australians King Parrot. The partnership is poised to bring their soul capturing strain of Melodic Death across the world.
Aetherial soon after inked a dual label deal with American based Imminence Records and Australian record label, Truth Inc.. The highly anticipated 12-track debut album The Still Waters of Oblivion was recorded, mixed, and mastered in Melbourne at Everland Productions by Oresti Salter. The Artwork, which was done by German artist Patrick Wittstock visualizes the aural ingenuity of the band through intensely dark visual concepts.
Finnish, Seinäjoki based metalcore band Red Raven Down released a new music video 'Ashes'. The track is taken from their upcoming EP 'Phantoms' which is released December 15th 2017 by Inverse Records. EP was recorded, mixed and mastered by Mika Autio (HallaFreakquency)
Singer Jani Korpela comment:
"We were seeking fresh sounds, still we wanted to take something where we ended with our first singles. Reaching rock bottom, but still there is some light to reach. Ashes music video captured song’s ambience pretty damn well. Song is about losing something very close and even the darkest hearted can empower in the end."
Music video Ashes was directed by Riku Männistö and it is available here: https://youtu.be/lY95uRro_4E

French metallers Insolvency have released their latest video, Death Wish. Taken from their upcoming album, “Antagonism Of The Soul”, which is set to be released on January 26th 2018 via Send The Wood, the video received its debut on Music Muso.
Vocalist/Guitarist Valentin Gondouin had this to say on the video:
"This song deals with the hardest time we come across during our lives: despair, loss of faith, being helpless. We made that music video with this kid surrounded by his toxic dad, thinking about suicide but he can’t do it and he’s still a prisoner of his dad’s control. The music itself mixes melancholic and smooth melodies with aggressive riffs and instrumentals."

Dutch Pagan Metallers Heidevolk drop first track & music video from upcoming album “Vuur van Verzet"
After having released details of their forthcoming Heidevolk album including the title, artwork, track listing and release date, it’s time to get a first listen to the new record!
The first track of the record as well as first single to be released is “Ontwaakt” (awaken), the band gives a deeper insight of the track and story behind:
"Awaken, the Roman Empire is falling! The internal battle for power tears the Empire apart. Legions turn against each other, emperors bleed and Rome burns. It is time for the tribes of the Northern lands to unite and rise against the tyrant. To take back what is theirs and drive the invaders back to Rome. Every battle that is fought by my people resounds in Rome. With sword and shield the Empire will be banished and the voice of my people will be heard!"
Furthermore songwriter Rowan Roodbaert comments:
“Ladies and gentlemen, brothers and sisters, we proudly present the first single of our new album. This is “Ontwaakt” (“Awaken”), the opening track of “Vuur Van Verzet”. An in-your-face metal song that tells the ageless story of revolt and resistance set against the backdrop of the historic collapse of the Roman empire. Heavy guitars, thundering drums and Heidevolks’ trademark dual vocal harmonies will catapult you back in time. Imagine a battlefield where Romans are being pushed back by Germanic warriors. Well, this is the soundtrack. Now awaken, the Pagan Metal Brotherhood is on the rise!!!”

Unlocking The Truth Release New Music Video for "My Chains" - WATCH IT HERE
By now, the story of teenage metal trio Unlocking The Truth (who walked away from a seven-figure deal with Sony) is well known. After years of media excitement, late-night TV appearances, and breakout sets at Coachella and Bonnaroo, the band's debut album Chaos was finally released independently last year. The Brooklyn-based band is now back with a new music video for their latest single "My Chains" that premiered exclusively with Loudwire.com. The video (directed by JP Brasca) cuts through much of the hype surrounding the group and shows a different side of the band.
"We wanted the video to show that Unlocking The Truth has more to offer than just a good song," says guitarist/vocalist Malcolm Brickhouse. "The video and song both push the envelope for 'the norm' in metal music. It's fresh. It's new. It's MY CHAINS!"
The track is a soulful metal hybrid, co-produced by Brickhouse (and Kenta Yonesaka, Germano Studio NY), who says "The meaning of 'My Chains' will be different for everyone, but there's a line in the song for everyone. Think about it. We all have chains in life. It could be somebody or something we use as a crutch to help us get through life and loosen those chains."
"My Chains" is available on Spotify and iTunes.

German heavy metal band Inner Axis have just released their second video "All Is One“, taken from the new album "WE LIVE BY THE STEEL“, out through FASTBALL MUSIC/SOULFOOD MUSIC DISTRIBUTION.
Soulwound, the thrash metal band featuring three brothers from Kouvola, Finland, have released a music video for the song "Alone against All" off the band's second full-length album "No Peace".
Watch music video here: https://youtu.be/T8ujYe3DvPQ
The band comments: "Our previous videos have always featured some symbolic content in addition to footage of the band performing, but this time we decided to go for a really stripped down DIY performance video to accompany the song Alone against All, which is arguably the most "punk" song on the album in its simplistic ferocity. The original idea was to both shoot and edit the video entirely by ourselves, but we soon realized that none of us had the hardware or software to pull it off, so we turned once again to our good friend Tino-Viljami Vanhala for the editing job. We knew we could count on his wizardry, and sure enough, he waved his magic wand over the decidedly crude footage we'd shot and turned it into something far better than we ever could have. So, crack open a beer and join us for a sweaty and oxygen-deprived headbanging party in the cramped basement room where we forge our brand of Finnish metal!"
"No Peace" was released in October 2016 by Inverse Records and is available globally. The band is currently preparing for its last live shows for this year in December and planning to start putting together material for a new album in early 2018.

Italian Death Metal / Deathcore stalwarts The Modern Age Slavery have released the official video for "Miles Apart," a track from forthcoming album Stygian. Check it out at: https://youtu.be/Ql1UOkxPsT0
Innerstrength Records will release Stygian on November 24. Pre-orders are available at:
Coming almost four years since the release of critically acclaimed 2013 release Requiem for Us All (Pavement), the level-jumping blast of intensity on the band's Innerstrength debut is the result of miles logged and the already dynamic songwriting honed to a fine point.
The band has released the following statement about the new album:
"With this new album we tried to make another step forward in the evolution of our sound: what you'll hear it's a quite obscure atmosphere delivering a sullen and evil experience, yet keeping the heaviness of the death metal matrix that marked our music in the previous albums. The lyrics are all inspired by a common theme, from which the name "Stygian" and the correlated artwork come from, discussing the questionable matter of the human evolution leading men to a slow but inevitable mutation into a being that lost his mind and compassion devoured by greediness and will to power. All the pieces of the puzzle are perfectly pondered to create an album made of passion, of anger, and real emotions. This is the The Modern Age's album!"
