IN VAIN – New lyric video available
IN VAIN, Norwegian pioneers of progressive extreme metal, are pleased to release an animated lyric video for “Seekers of the Truth”, the first single of their upcoming album “Currents” to be released on 26th January 2018 via Indie Recordings.
Watch and listen “Seekers of the Truth” here: https://youtu.be/7IDtBJpdt9Y
Johnar Håland comments: “On ‘Currents’ you will find a variety of epic, long and complex songs, and on the other side of the spectrum; short, catchy and more immediate tracks. ‘Seekers of the Truth’ falls in the latter category. Costin did a great job of visualizing the lyrical content and we are very pleased with his creative work”.
The video was done by IN VAIN’s cover designer, Costin Chioreanu, who provides his thoughts on the creative process behind the video: “Seekers of the Truth is by far not a random lyric video. Pushed by the message of the song, I wanted to add a new dimension to the whole presentation, which can be discovered in the message of the illustrations. For me, the lyrics of this song are talking about one of the vital issues of nowadays society, an issue which is felt just by a very few. Those are the seekers, who are still living out there, among this terrifying crowd of people who switched their reality with a common illusion, agreed and imposed by the system. So, with all these dramatic moments I tried to catch in my illustrations for this video, I hope I could make the message of the band more powerful, and I hope it will be reached by those who need it to go on."

"Currents" will be released in two editions. The special edition will feature 2 bonustracks and an extended packaging. Pre-order and details here: http://goo.gl/yCLwzz

A first song entitled "Tomb Omnia" is streaming now at this location: https://youtu.be/_4V5Yb3oARw

Founded in 2011 in Vienna, Austria, the aim of HARAKIRI FOR THE SKY has always been to create a unique mixture of melancholy and aggression, madness and meaning, and wrapped in alternately manic/mellow songs that bridged black metal and atmospheric post-rock.

OLD MOTHER HELL - Debut album to be released on vinyl and digital platforms via Cruz Del Sur Music
Cruz Del Sur Music will release the self-titled debut album from German metallers OLD MOTHER HELL on digital and vinyl platforms in early 2018.
OLD MOTHER HELL was formed in 2015 from the ashes of another local thrash act, HATCHERY, by guitarist/vocalist Bernd Wener, bassist Ronald Senft and drummer Ruben André. Their self-funded debut album was recorded in May 2017 in Rama Studio Mannheim by Jens Siefert, who mixed and produced the LP under the band’s watchful eye. The result is a striking balance between mountainous epic metal and a straightforward attack, with doom influences present, even as the band is playing pure, take-no-prisoners metal.
