Czech post doom metallers Indrid Cold have released their new music video "Číše Života" (directed and edited by: Luboš Stručovský), watch it here:-https://youtu.be/JPJf_eMzdKM
"Číše Života" (Goblet Of Life) is the second song from Indrid Cold’s recent album "Monument Prázdnoty" (released on June 1st via Sliptrick Records). The track is set to a music poem from the collection ‘Transformations of the Demon’ by Michail Lermontov 1831. It’s a dark melancholic anthem describing the illusory nature of this world.
"Monument Prázdnoty" (Eng: Monument of Emptiness) is the debut album from Czech post doom metal band Indrid Cold. The word emptiness means: “The field of boundless emptiness is what exists from the very beginning. You must purify, cure, grind down, or brush away all the tendencies you have fabricated into apparent habits. Then you can reside in a clear circle of brightness. Utter emptiness has no image. Upright independence does not rely on anything. Just expand and illuminate the original truth unconcerned by external conditions. Read more …here

Portuguese melodic death metallers Apotheus release new video for "Staring The Abyss" (first post-pandemic live show)
Portuguese melodic death metal titans Apotheus just released a new video for the track “Staring the Abyss”, taken from their latest full-length "The Far Star".
You can watch the video at this location: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XGqUI_pEcVE
“Staring the Abyss” is about despair and loss, but it also paves the way for a fallback plan in which everyone puts their hopes. After such a dark terrible loss for everyone, the band has decided to bring you a glimpse of light. This video captures very well the joy and excitement of what happened at our first post-pandemic live show. It’s hard to put into words the feeling of rediscovering what truly drives them.
In essence, this is what “The Far Star” is about: a journey, with terrible losses and majestic wins, but above all, it’s about never giving up.
Subway To Sally have released the second video from their new live Blu-Ray, Eisheilige Nacht - Back To Lindenpark. This special, intimate version of the fan favourite "Kleid Aus Rosen" (EN: Dress Of Roses) offers an absolute world premiere: Ally Storch, as well as Saskia and Birgit from Schandmaul, intonate the legendary three-part polyphony at the beginning of the song for the first time ever live.
This version of "Kleid Aus Rosen" stands for what Eisheilige Nacht - Back To Lindenpark is all about: an intimate setting, special guests and unique production.
Bodenski on "Kleid Aus Rosen":
"There are lyrics that you write in one ride. I can still remember exactly how I put this story on paper. In my mind's eye I saw a balladeer standing in the marketplace with a display board and telling his audience this gruesome story, perhaps as a lesson and warning for young girls.
I actually believed at the time that the lyrics would not be suitable for Subway To Sally. I was so wrong. When I heard Ingo's brilliant composition to this text, I was thrilled. It is rightly one of our most popular songs. Everything about this song is just right. In the studio, Sigrid Hausen, better known as Syrah, helped us to sing the three-part intro. Until the Eisheilige Nacht Online, this intro was always recorded. It was a special experience for us to hear it live for the first time!"

German death / thrash metal band Entorx have unveiled their music video for "Morbid Rage" (taken from the album "Faceless Insanity") - https://youtu.be/1wZXErW1zn8
The band shared their thoughts about the music video:-
"We felt very early that "Morbid Rage" had to be equipped with a video. The song is in stark contrast to itself and the lyrics. So what could be more obvious than creating a special video for it? Have fun and always stay sane! :)"
Since 2009, Entorx have provided rough, atmospheric and complex death / thrash metal, with a blend of progressive music. Pushing and playful drums collide with mighty walls of guitars, which are underpinned by driving and highly variable bass compositions. René’s blood-curdling vocals cap it all, while seamlessly changing to impressive clean vocals.
In 2020, Entorx increased their range massively. Their previously released EP "Theta Waves“ and LP "Broken Ways“ are highly praised: a more than solid foundation is already pounded. Also, they are known for their energetic and precise live performances.
After tightening the screws creating a new album for a few years, Entorx are ready for the next level. Their new and highly anticipated album "Faceless Insanity" is a very dark and aggressive brew; simultaneously more playful than its highly praised predecessor "Broken Ways“. The band's more demanding technical and bleak arrangements are a real pleasure for fans of bands like DARKANE, REVOCATION, OPETH, GOJIRA and HATE!
Entorx are continuously active as a live act and can look back on more than 140 concerts. They successfully had the chance to demonstrate their musicianship at various festivals, like Metallergrillen, Knüppelnacht, Waldpark Open Air, Rhein Neckar Metal Festival and Metal Infection.

"Losing You" is available on all digital stores HERE

Finnish extreme metallers Progeny of Sun release 'Dark Wanderer' EP along with music video 'Eclipse'
Finnish extreme metal band Progeny Of Sun released their new EP Dark Wanderer via Inverse Records. To celebrate the release the band also released a music video for Eclipse track.
Watch Eclipse music video: https://youtu.be/nAafZPI-Ji0
The band comments:
"We think this is a huge improvement from the first EP. The sounds and texts have gotten increasingly dark and gained a pressuring twist. All in all, the material feels more unified this time around even though we have more people behind it. Vocals are bit more straightforward compared to the first EP, still with a lot of variance, but with more taste.
This EP summarizes well the direction we want to take our music, and the next album will be killer. The video is also an absolute cracker especially considering it's fully our own making. Joni did absolutely amazing job getting it done. We think the video also summarizes our energy and enthusiasm precisely. The video shoot was easy, we just played the song as we would with an audience. We had only one small setback when the person who was supposed to shoot the video got quarantined because of coronavirus. Fortunately, Joni was able to step up and with little additional help from our "manager" we handled the situation well."
