If you haven't learned the name Earthists., this is a band you'll want to get to know. They've been consistently playing shows in Japan and catching the attention of big name international touring acts. The band stands out with their combination of meaningful lyrics, incredible stage presence and musicianship. These elements are showcased in the new live video for "Dreamscape".
Despite the language barriers, one might think there's a loss in translation, however the lyrics really do explain who the band is and what's important to them as they sing, 'We live on this planet, Forever will we. Don't destroy the only place to stay, There cannot be us anymore once it's broken'.
When Tragic Hero Records discussed the lyrics with Earthists, the band explained the concept of, “What is done cannot be undone.” Pretending not to see destruction of the earth needs to be changed, and Earthists strongly emphasizes how we, ourselves, should be that change. Additionally, the lyrics describe the idea that, “We have no choice where we are born.” However, we can truly start to live our lives once we choose exactly how we want to live them. Earthists. debut album is available now at Merchbucket and Merchnow.

Colombian doom-gothic metal 4-piece Charm Designer released their first music video "Never After" on Friday, April 7th, 2017 through Inverse Records’ YouTube channel and the band’s own Facebook page.
Video is available here: https://youtu.be/tn-fE49ZDu4
The clip for Never After was shot in their hometown by local director Gustavo Carvajal, and it portrays both the concept of a multiple characterization of mortality and Gustavo’s bet on a “fashion film” inspired visual aesthetics and the interplay of light and shade.
Never After is the second single from Charm Designer’s 2016 album "Everlasting", which was produced and recorded by Waldemar Sorychta (Tiamat, Samael, Moonspell, Lacuna Coil, etc.). Previously and as anticipation for the album, a lyric video for the title track, which featured the artwork and animation of renowned Romanian artist Costin Chioreanu, was released as a first single.
Everlasting was first released by Finland’s Inverse Records on CD and also for download and streaming through digital platforms.
Keep up with Charm Designer’s latest news and updates by following their social media:
Aftermoon (Modern Metal from Ukraine) are proud to announce the release of the official video for the song "Cold" (watch by clicking), taken from their album "Phase One" (Wormholedeath Records).
The band introduces themselves with:-
"Aftermoon is a modern metal band from Kiev, Ukraine. We started our musical way in 2012. Since the band's formation, Aftermoon has played more than 35 shows in the biggest Ukrainian cities. We explore different genres in our music, such as modern metal, alternative rock and crossover. Symbiosis of different styles: we combine melodic vocals and piano with hard guitar riffs and intense rhythm section, use classical techniques and the variety of modern sound to create a unique mix that exists on the border of various musical genres.
This allows Aftermoon find listeners with different musical preferences, both extreme metal and soft rock fans. Our shows are always different as well as our songs. Aftermoon concert program can be very sensual and calm and can consist our lyrical songs, acoustic versions of Aftermoon`s tracks and even covers-versions of the greatest hits. On the contrary, it can be a heavy-metal show, where clean vocals changes to extreme techniques, gentle piano sound transforms into aggressive and hard synths. However, usually it all comes together into a wild vortex of emotions, music, feelings and drive."
Belgian modern melodic death metallers Hexa Mera have unleashed a 360° video for the title-track from their second upcoming full-length album, "Enlightenment", which will be released on March 31st. The track is now streaming via YouTube here:- https://youtu.be/t2qxdeRXdHE
The band has the following to say about the track:-
'Enlightenment' is the title track of our new album. The song is heavy yet fragile, and the lyrics tie the whole album together. It's a very emotional track, as if the five of us took a slice of our soul and put it into music. It's about finding your path, finding a sense of purpose. It's about accepting your place in the universe. It's about enlightenment. We get goosebumps every time we play it."
The band has the following to say about "Enlightenment": "The idea to use the age of enlightenment as theme for this album was forged right after we released our debut album ‘Human Entropy’. The world was and still is spinning out of control: Extremists became a larger threat to our civilization, human and animal rights are being violated, political correctness is censoring the truth, media focusing on sales instead of news value, and so much more… the world never was an utopic place, but with the information we got, it seemed to become worse. We felt fear, disappointment, but most of all, we felt anger. Because we felt powerless, the only thing we could do was to speak out, and this is exactly what this album is about."
The official ‘Enlightenment’ release-show will take place on April 1st at the renowned ‘Nijdrop’ venue in Opwijk, Belgium. More information can be found here.
England's Cypher16 unveils striking music video for "Open The Dark Door"; filmed at London's Natural History Museum
Cypher16 just wrapped up a successful 24-city North American tour with headliners Amaranthe, and today, the band is following up with their brand new music video for the single "Open The Dark Door". The video's backdrop is the impressive and striking London Natural History Museum, where the band was given behind-the-scenes access to film their "Night At The Museum"-esque footage. The video is packed with fast-paced performance scenes, pyrotechnics and beautiful architectural views. Watch the music video, directed by Ben Thornley of Sitcom Soldiers, via Ultimate-Guitar here:
Cypher16 is considered to be one of the most anticipated metal / rock bands-to-watch out of the UK, and this video reflects their DIY prowess. Frontman Jack Doolan says:
"368 days in the making, "Open The Dark Door" at the Natural History Museum started out as a ridiculous and over-ambitious idea, but thanks to the hard work of a lot of people, became a reality. Like the "Lonely Road" video (which we shot at Battersea Power Station), finding an amazing and awe-inspiring venue was essential. When we somehow convinced the team at the NHM to let us invade for one night, Cypher16 was not only the first heavy rock band to ever conduct a full-scale shoot both outside and inside the Hintze Hall, but the shoot became one of the last projects to film with Dippy the Dinosaur before he left the museum for his extended tour.
We knew we would have to bring in a great film and direction team to help us make it a reality. Enter Ben, Bez and crew at Sitcom Soldiers, who brought their vision, enthusiasm and expertise and really made it all happen! I hope you all enjoy watching it our 'night at the museum' as much as we enjoyed making it, although I won't deny, it was one of the longest nights of my life!"
Cypher16 have risen up the ranks in their native UK throughout the last few years, amassing a devoted following which has afforded them the opportunity to perform at numerous festivals around the world (including India and China), and to catch the eyes and ears of reputable music publications and tastemakers. The band released their latest album - the hooky, symphonic metal-tinged alt-rock offering The Great Surveyor (recorded by renowned producer Romesh Dodangoda [Motörhead, Bullet For My Valentine, Funeral For A Friend]) - in 2015..
The Great Surveyor is available via Amazon here. Cypher16 melds modern European heavy metal riffage with unforgettable alternative rock-inspired choruses, generating a truly multi-faceted and unpredictable auditory attack.

Hailing from the colourful and music-inspired streets of Minneapolis, Minnesota, comes the unique blend of Metal / Rock / Industrial that is Gabriel and the Apocalypse. The band delivers a fierce yet beautiful array of female-fronted aggression that will give its predecessors a run for their money.
In regards to the new album, vocalist Lindy Gabriel says,
“The Ghost Parade is a concept record that brings you on a music roller coaster ride. From in your face songs, like ‘March of the Dolls,’ to stripped down emotional songs, like ‘Behind the Sun,’ this record still maintains a taste of the usual GATA anthems on politics and world issues, but, as a whole, it is more personal. I feel as a writer and lyricist it is more abstract and poetic. I feel more exposed and vulnerable. It's honest. It flows and twists through different waves and moods from beginning to end.”
The Ghost Parade was recently released by Pavement Entertainment, and the band has just completed its new video and single “Thrill of the Kill.” Gabriel and the Apocalypse will embark on a full tour this June and July with Wednesday 13. Check the video here:-
