Alternative Metal artists Fate Destroyed release the lyric video for their new song Inside.
After the success of Fate DeStroyed's video We Fall, they have returned with their follow up lyric video Inside. The song is about the veil we pull over our eyes to justify chasing after the things which we think will make us happy but will inevitably destroy us. Inside exposes our masochistic pursuit of happiness.
The lyric video for Inside was designed by David Letelier and produced by Brandon Wolfe. Inside is out now and can be seen by clicking the link below.
Fate DeStroyed is a Los Angeles based metal band, formed by front woman Franccesca De Struct in 2016.

While they draw influence from bands such as Trivium, Deftones and Nine Inch Nails, the unexpected audio assault and raw emotion from front woman Franccesca DeStruct sets them apart from the pack.
2018 served as a turning point for the group having solidified their line up with Jonni Laww , joined on Guitars, with Nathan YoungBlood (Green Jelly/Ex-Dirty Machine) on Bass, and Ben Levi of Matriarchs on Drums.
In May 2018 the band released the music video to their first single “Break Free” produced by Carlton Bost of Orgy.

Legendary UK Thrash Metal band Onslaught premieres a brand new track entitled- 'A Perfect Day to Die' that is taken off the forthcoming album whose title will be revealed in the coming days.
Guitarist Nige Rockett comments:-
"We are really psyched to finally get some new material out to the fans, the first single to come from the new album is entitled 'A Perfect Day to Die' and is a little nod to our sadly departed friends from 'Motorhead' who were a major influence for Onslaught in many many ways. The track has been mixed by 'Jacob Hansen' (Volbeat, Udo, Evergrey) and produced by ourselves and 'Pete Hinton' (Saxon) it sounds so heavy with a super aggressive vibe, it really has a ton of potential..!" He goes on to add, "Right now we're currently working flat out finish the remainder of the writing for the next record, things are sounding so cool, fresh and very brutal."

Japanese metal group Survive began life over 20 years and have forged their own indelible path within the jmetal scene. It was back in 1998, when former Death File guitarist and mastermind Nemo decided to form a thrash metal band of his own which soon became the juggernaut known as Survive. It didn’t take long for the band to create their first demo tape and their promise was backed-up in a big way when the group embarked on a tour with legendary Japanese thrash-metallers United (whose guitarist Singo Otani also produced the demo). Soon after, Survive were ready to release their debut album Against Next, which allowed the band to tour Japan extensively and gain domestic recognition.
Over the next two decades the band released 5 albums and toured with metal giants such as Napalm Death, At The Gates, Kreator, Overkill and Venom, cementing their place in Japanese metal history. Still going strong, Survive‘s latest album Immortal Warriors was released to the Japanese market in late 2018 and now the album will be released worldwide via Sliptrick Records in 2019. Survive have lost none of their verve and Immortal Warriors is an absolute must for fans of this fantastic, often overlooked band.

Canadian Violin Progressive Metallers Cydemind unveil Vivaldi cover in stunning video "Winter"
After releasing their debut album "Erosion" in 2017 and writing the video game soundtrack of NavyBlue and the Spectrum Killers in 2018, Cydemind is back with a new single and music video called "Winter". The song is an arrangement of one of Antonio Vivaldi’s Four Season violin concertos.
Watch "Winter" via MetalInjection.net at the following link: http://www.metalinjection.net/video/cydeminds-violin-metal-shred-was-made-for-winter-in-this-beautiful-video
As the Montreal-based quintet is led by classical violinist Olivier Allard, it was natural for the band to showcase its classical sound in this music video as Oliver explains:-
"It’s always been in Cydemind’s side-projects to make metal covers of classical music pieces. What better way to start than with one of my favourite violin concertos by Vivaldi!"
Co-directors Vincent Allard and Juliette Guerin hopped in the project without hesitation:
"Vivaldi’s Winter violin concerto is already such a cinematic piece with lots of contrast. It was a great challenge to find landscapes that could match both our view of Quebec’s winter while maintaining Cydemind’s highly energetic approach to the piece."
The video was shot in various locations in Quebec, Canada. Scheduled to be filmed in March 2018, the project was postponed to February 2019 due to bad weather. Guitarist Kevin Paquet adds:-
"As much as we had no luck last year, karma was on our side this year. The weather was fabulous, I think it definitely highlights the splendour of our Canadian winters."
“Winter” was recorded at The Grid studio in collaboration with producer Christian Donaldson (The Agonist, Cryptopsy, Beyond Creation). The artwork was created by Cydemind’s own drummer Alexandre Dagenais.
"Winter" is available for stream and download on Bandcamp, iTunes, Spotify, and all other major platforms, where you can also find Cydemind’s debut album Erosion (2017).
In a world where so much music is bland and generic, Cydemind is a breath of fresh air! Mixing progressive rock, jazz, classical, and progressive metal, Montreal-based Cydemind is a special and unique band, one we’ll be hearing a lot more from in the future. Influenced by such bands as Dream Theater. Symphony X. Haken, Neal Morse Band, and jazzmen like Avishai Cohen and Tigran Hamasyan, violinist Olivier Allard describes their sound as “violin meets instrumental prog metal!”.
Prolific artists, Cydemind released its first EP ‘Through Mists and Ages’ back in 2014 and soon after its single ‘What Remains’. After a few years of writing and refining their sound, the quintet (violin, bass, piano, guitar, drums) came back with their first full-length album. Entitled ‘Erosion’, its six tracks are centred around the theme of nature and its persistence through time. Epic is the word here, with one track clocking in at an impressive 27 minutes. ‘Erosion’ was released independently on Bandcamp, iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and all major online retailers.
Cydemind then branched off a bit from the usual metal band musical path to produce the music for the indie video game ‘Navyblue and the Spectrum Killers’. The game released in September 2018 and is available on Steam. In addition to writing the whole soundtrack for the game, Cydemind also released two singles ‘Navyblue’ and ‘Lights of Iberia’ as bonus content for the game.
To further expand their musical soundscape and reach new audiences, the versatile band released its first music video ‘Winter’ in March 2019. The single is an arrangement of Vivaldi’s ‘Winter violin concerto’ from the Four Seasons. Shot in various locations in Quebec, Canada, the video highlights both the majestic Canadian winter and the highly energetic performance of the band.
In addition to their recording experiences, the band has performed many times in the Montreal area since 2011 in venues like Foufounes Électriques, Katacombes, Theatre Plaza and more. They recently created the first edition of Proggy Nights in Canada, a small tour that reunited 3 Canadian prog bands in Québec City, Montreal and Toronto.
Aside from their performance expertise, Olivier (violin) and Camille (piano) have also been teaching their instrument for many years. Olivier is a doctorate student in violin performance at University of Montreal, while Camille graduated from the classical piano program at CEGEP St-Laurent in Montreal.
Russian Atmospheric Black / Death Metal duo Absence Betrayal release "Devotion" music video
Russian Atmospheric Black/Death Metal band Absence Betrayal released new video clip for "Devotion" - https://youtu.be/b1UMflLmHqA
Absence Betrayal it's when emotions, experiences and morality entwining together, creating a live extreme music unit. Every song from this band is a separate and sad history with its philosophical implication and sense. The band was created as a studio project of one man (vocalist Andrey Baranov) but actual themes and music quickly found the response, so there came a desire to play this music live.
