Portuguese progressive/alternative metallers Blame Zeus have revealed a new single, "Bloodstained Hands," from their third album, Seethe, available today via Rockshots Records.
The band explains:-
"'Bloodstained Hands' is about regret. Feeling like you can't go back from the choices you make, and so you must face up to them and to your mistakes. It expresses the despair of looking for a way out, but also the relief of coming clean."
Listen to "Bloodstained Hands" here: https://youtu.be/oCU7hv0bPh0.
With influences that range from progressive metal to alternative rock, Blame Zeus's music can be described as an intense and heavy rock with intimate and nostalgic ballads.
Bring Me The Horizon continue their assault on 2019 with the release of a new track entitled ‘Ludens’ from the highly anticipated "Death Stranding" Soundtrack (original music from the world of Death Stranding: Timefall).
These recent releases (Ludens and in the dark) showcase Bring Me The Horizon at their best and help to confirm their status as one of the most important British rock bands in the world.
The soundtrack features original music inspired by the upcoming PlayStation 4 (PS4™) video game. Last month it was announced that RCA Records had partnered with Sony Interactive Entertainment (“SIE”) to release the soundtrack which is out today and available here.
‘Ludens’ follows previously released tracks ‘Trigger’ by Major Lazer & Khalid, ‘Ghost’ by Au/Ra x Alan Walker, ‘Yellow Box’ by The Neighbourhood and ‘Death Stranding’ by Chvrches.
Oli says of the track:-
“Death Stranding is a game I’ve been waiting for long before collaborating with them was on the table. Kojima-san is one of the few people I would call a hero to me, so making a track for his first game since Konami was equal parts daunting, stressful & exciting… the whole thing felt surreal, and not right... to be honest I didn’t see where a Bring Me The Horizon song was going to fit into an art house AAA game but I was stupid to try and pigeonhole Kojima’s style!”
From legendary game creator Hideo Kojima comes an all-new, genre-defying experience for PlayStation®4 system. Sam Bridges must brave a world transformed by the Death Stranding. Carrying the remnants of our future in his hands, he embarks on a mission to reunite the shattered world. With spectral creatures plaguing the landscape, and humanity on the verge of a mass extinction, it’s up to Sam to journey across the ravaged continent and save mankind from impending annihilation. What is the mystery of the Death Stranding? What will Sam discover on the road ahead? An unprecedented gameplay experience holds these answers and more.Starring Norman Reedus, Mads Mikkelsen, Léa Seydoux and Lindsay Wagner.
Multi-platinum, Grammy nominated, quintet Bring Me The Horizon have released the official video for single “In The Dark” today – watch HERE. Written, directed and edited by the band’s frontman Oliver Sykes, the visual stars Oscar, Emmy and Golden Globe winning actor Forest Whitaker and sees him undergo Matrix-like brain mapping.
Co-directed and produced by videographer Brian Cox, Oli comments:-
"’In The Dark’ is my first ‘official’ directing effort. We were in the midst of planning to shoot the video with a director in LA, 3 days before the shoot I got a call from Forest saying he was in London and available, so ignoring everyone who said it was impossible to make it happen in time, I called our videographer Brian and asked him if he wanted to help me direct a video. 2 days later we were shooting in London! It was a crazy, emotional few days and I was very lucky to bag an insanely talented crew to assist me.”
The band is currently touring in support of their number one album, 'Amo' (RCA), which exploded on both sides of the pond. Its lead track, “Mantra,” earned the band its first-ever Grammy nomination for “Best Rock Song.” Fans can catch Bring Me The Horizon on their headlining “Threesome Tour” before it wraps on October 29 in Miami, FL.

"For this one we stepped up the production a bit from our previous videos. Apart from a great performance by the band, it also features acting by Sabina Melander. Her presence adds a lot of emotion to this video. All this is filmed by our friend Therese Andersson, that we have worked with many times before on previous projects. The story of the video follows the theme of the lyrics in the song, but also leaves room for interpretation by the viewer."
Tool celebrates their third consecutive #1 debut on Billboard’s Top 200, with Fear Inoculum (RCA Records) reigning over the U.S. sales charts, selling 270,000 units.
The news of Fear Inoculum’s impressive debut comes amidst news stories of the album release being met by lengthy lines at retailers as music lovers clamoured to get a copy of the limited edition, physical version of the CD. The spectacular, groundbreaking packaging boasts a 4” HD rechargeable screen with exclusive video footage, charging cable, 2 watt speaker, a 36-page booklet and a digital download card. The Coalition of Independent Music Stores (CIMS) released a rare statement, describing the event-like album release:-
“Several stores had well-attended midnight sales on Thursday (it was my store's first midnight sale in 10 years). When we returned to work on Friday morning, there were lines at the door… the TOOL release was the biggest thing to hit retail in years.”
The success wasn’t isolated to the U.S., with the album debuting at #1 in Australia, Norway, New Zealand, and Belgium, as well as Top 5 debuts in the UK, Germany, The Netherlands, Ireland, Italy and Finland.
Hollow Thoughts is an alternative-metal band emerging from Kuopio, Finland. The band has already gained attention from heavy music media's with earlier singles released via Inverse Records: Half Deceased (2018) and Scarred Generations (2019) and now, the third single Path turns the course towards even more melodic and hook-filled direction.
Check the music video: https://youtu.be/-1jamSkGoqg
Listen to the single:
The band comments on the new single:
"Our third single Path is an exiting and new thing for us because it’s the first song that we shot a music video for. Themes of the song are pretty deep and dark which is typical for us but there’s also a certain sense of hopefulness as well. The song is in a sense a story about seeking the right way and letting go of the things that keep us from finding it. Video on the other hand underlines the less obvious gloomy undertone that is inevitably present when seeking a new course for life. In the end anxiety gets the better of the main character so there are no happy endings in this story."
