June 28, 2017

The metal duo KrashKarma have released a new music video for their song, Killing Time. The video was filmed at the Easter Cross Festival in Oberndorf, Germany on April 16th, 2017. It is a great track that delivers a great dose of metal balancing on powerful yet velvety vocals!

This is our interpretation of what Pantera would sound like to Clint Eastwood in The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. This video was shot on our last tour at a Metal Festival in Germany.”  Check out the video here:   Pick up the new album Paint The Devil by heading over to iTunes here: https://itunes.apple.com/album/id1040214726?ls=1&app=itunes.

Symphonic power metal band Insatia releases new music video for Memory of a Sapphire

June 27, 2017

Symphonic power metal band Insatia have just released a music video for their song, Memory of a Sapphire. The song is off their newly released album, Phoenix Aflame. Vocalist Zoë Federoff comments on the song, “Memory of a Sapphire quickly became a favorite for us in the studio- it’s poppy and melody-oriented, which makes it a lot of fun to play live. Spotlighting Mr. Chris Amott’s guitar artistry on it adds a whole new level of zing, and as it really represents our sound most completely, it all seemed very natural to make it the first music video for the album.” Check out the video here:     You can pick up the album by heading over to https://pitchblackrecords.bandcamp.com/album/phoenix-aflame Track List: 1. Intro (Land Of The Living) 2. Act Of Mercy 3. Memory Of A Sapphire 4. Sacred 5. We Are The Grey 6. Phoenix Aflame 7. Not My God 8. Captor And Captive 9. Velvet Road 10.

Korn delivers EPIC set out on the must-see Serenity of Summer Tour

June 23, 2017

  Last night The Serenity of Summer Tour made a stop in Mountain View at the Shoreline Amphitheater. It was a night fueled by high energy sets from Islander, Baby Metal, Yelawolf, Stone Sour and KORN. We will be featuring individual posts highlighting each set. Of course, we must start off with the high energy kick ass set of KORN as they headline the tour. Before they hit the stage, it was a packed audience in the amphitheater.  The crowd was growing with anticipation as a black sheet draped the stage. Once the music started, the crowds erupted in screams and cheers, the drape dropped and KORN was fulling taking over the stage. It was amazing to hear how loud the audience grew as they performed. The sound was incredible as they performed a flawless set, including fan favorites as well as songs off their latest album, The Serenity of Suffering. Check out photos from their set by our Rockin Ryan:   Korn also recently released a music video for their song, Black Is The Soul: [Read More]
