Swiss black metal pioneers SAMAEL are back with a brand new video! “Samael” is one of the most known songs off their latest album Hegemony (2017).
The band on the video:
“The video was shot last summer in Poland and Switzerland. It was filmed and edited by Sergey Ulyanov already responsable for the “Rite of Renewal” video. We tried to restitute the energy of our live performance from which our crowd is a big part. Some of the shots were actually sent by fans and integrated in the final video. It’s all about you, enjoy!”

With the release of their debut EP ‘Morbid Black Trinity’ looming, Master’s Call have premiered a new music video for ‘From Once Beneath The Cursed’.
Recorded at Parlour Studios (Napalm Death, At The Gates, Sikth) ‘From Once Beneath The Cursed’ is the Wolverhampton Black Metal group’s first music performance video.
“The track is about a physical embodiment formed from the underlying evil and madness of the world, and we have a depiction of this running throughout the video in the form of a decrepit figure awakening and rising”, explains guitarist Dave Powell. “These scenes in a small cellar that had been recently damaged by flooding. It was cold, dark and damp. For the band performance shots we were filmed in an abandoned school in the Black Country area. There was no power, so we took a generator to power the necessary equipment in the room. The generator did cut out a number of times whilst filming, plunging us into darkness, but we managed to bring it back to life and push on through!”
European heart, Prague, was exposed to some legendary squads from Scandinavia and closer Germany.
Norwegian (black) metal squad has shown Prague very nice concert while introducing their last album Eonian released this year. Also, we could hear some their older hit songs as Dimmu Borgir or Progenies of The Great Apocalypse. Dimmu’s show was closed by their mighty Mourning Palace from Enthrone Darkness Triumphant.
After Dimmu Borgir, German thrash metal legends played their set with some projection behind themselves and also in the front during the intro. The music was still thrash metal but full of pretty modern sound. To me, it seemed they had more fans in the hall than Norwegians before. Maybe the alcohol in between bands during the pause has helped in this matter a little.
Concert went well and sound was very good. Some fans complained about the sound quality, but I was pleased. There was only small hickup in the entrance regarding some formal stuff, but thankfully it was resolved…
Thanks to the bands for nice performance they have delivered, Nuclear Blast, Pragokoncert Bohemia and staff for making this concert possible and pretty much smooth.
