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.

Check out the new single from symphonic power metal band Insatia

June 21, 2017

Symphonic power metal band Insatia have just released their second single off their upcoming album, Phoenix Aflame. The album is set for a June 23rd release via Pitch Black Records.  The song is We Are The Grey and Vocalist Zoë Federoff comments that the new track “was actually the first song we had written for this album – originally I had constructed it to be a ballad, but as we started working on it, it became more straight up power metal. I don’t like discussing my lyrics in too much depth with certain songs, because it’s fun to see people apply their own meanings to them. This is definitely one of those songs.” Check out the track here: You can pre-order the album by heading over to https://pitchblackrecords.bandcamp.com/album/phoenix-aflame Track List: 1.
