Video premiere: Obscura Amentia “The Art Of The Human Decadence”


Obscura Amentia are back with a new official video for the title track from their album The Art Of The Human Decadence, released earlier this year via Sliptrick Records. The video clip for The Art Of The Human Decadence tells about the journey of a single person and, at the same time, of the whole of mankind: a mental and physical evolution from innocence, purity and life (visually expressed through the use of light colours and lush nature) to corruption, artifice, doubt, and then in the end, death.

NEWS – Tethra To Stream ‘Closed Doors’ Show Live On Facebook June 8th To Support Live Scene And Metal Genres


Italian metal act Tethra are passionate about emerging artists and they are on a mission to increase the numbers of people that attend smaller, club sized venues in not just Italy, but on a worldwide scale, stating:

“In recent years, many small and medium-sized clubs dedicated to metal music have closed or changed their genre because of the low attendance at the concerts.

It’s a global phenomenon that, if it does not have a clear turnabout, will oblige all industry employees to make drastic decisions.”

So, Tethra, would like to raise awareness amongst all fans of this genre about this topic, assuming a catastrophic scenario for the next future: what will happen when the last live club will also close? Will emerging bands play no more or will they totally rely on live streaming from rehearsal studios and improvised venues?

For this reason, on Thursday 8th June at 10pm (Italian time) and 9pm (UK), Tethra will play a full set live streaming show in a real live venue open just for them, furthermore, to give everyone the opportunity to participate in this event, they will keep the video online for 24 hours. No doubt they will be playing songs taken from their new album ‘Like Crows For The Earth’ which is out now in Europe and released 23rd July in the US!

You can follow the event through Tethra’s Facebook page: www.facebook.com/TethraHell and for the direct event page link visit: https://www.facebook.com/events/1678452952183598/

This is Tethra’s contribution to the cause, hoping to be able to induce a reflection before this catastrophic scenario becomes a reality because on June 8th they will create a paradox that more than one band has had to endure in its career: playing in an empty room … will you be with Tethra?

 

About Tethra:

Tethra’s full-length album, “Like Crows for The Earth”, which was recorded and mixed by Matt Stancioiu (Labyrinth) at Elnor Studios and mastered by Greg Chandles (Esoteric) at Priory Studios. reveals how much the band has evolved sonically since their 2013 album, “Drown into the Sea of Life”. The album was released in Europe on February 11th via Sliptrick Records, with a US release in the pipelines on July 23rd.

Tethra produces elements such as acoustic breaks, striking solos and Doom-influenced melodies are mixed with charismatic vocals courtesy of the versatile frontman Clode Tethra. Blending gloomy Doom Metal, raging Death Metal and melodic early 90s Gothic Metal tinged vocals, Tethra will be the last nail on your cross.

Between 2011 and 2012, Tethra’s reputation grew, earning them spots in supporting the likes of Sepultura, Daylight Dies, Saturnus, Forgotten Tomb, Sadist, The Foreshadowing, Jackfrost and performing at Malta Doom Fest. In 2013, the Italians released their debut album, “Drown into the Sea of Life”, a concept album where the theme was focused on water.

LACUNA COIL – release video for “You Love Me ‘Cause I Hate You”


After launching a video clip for the song “Blood, Tears, Dust” (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s9sVUqOhcPU) LACUNA COIL are revealing the full story of their two conceptual videos with their latest clip for the song “You Love Me ‘Cause I Hate You”. Like “Blood, Tears, Dust” the video was directed and edited by Cosimo Alemà and produced by the production company Borotalco.

Check out “You Love Me ‘Cause I Hate You” under the following link:

Cristina Scabbia (vocals): “The videos we shot with Cosimo Alemà are exactly what we wanted to deliver visually, especially if connected with a record like ’Delirium’. The darkness, the intensity, the script itself are taking the viewer to the dimension we wanted to be transported to. ‘You Love Me ‘Cause I Hate You’ and ‘Blood, Tears, Dust’ are tightened together in a twisted story that I like a lot as there is so much that can be defined with each one’s imagination. Interpreting different characters was also exciting, an interesting challenge I hadn’t faced until then. I hope the viewers can capture the magic we breathed while we shot them.”

Andrea Ferro (vocals): “Every age has its form of storytelling, and video clips have been a huge part of our culture. Talking with Cosimo (Alemà/director) and our label we decided to create something to bring back the artistic quality video clips used to have. We put our love for cinema into our video for the song ‘You Love Me ‘Cause I Hate You’, as you will see there is a clear inspiration from TV series like ‘True Detective’ and also a certain ‘Twin Peaks’/’Resident Evil’ vibe. We wanted the viewers to contemplate the story and question what it really means. There is also a tight connection with the previous video for the song ‘Blood, Tears, Dust’ as both clips should be considered almost as one single piece. The videos clearly explore the main theme of our latest album, ‘Delirium’, and all its madness and symbols. It’s been a really great and challenging experience to be on the set for several days and work in ‘cinema style’ for the very first time to create something completely new for LACUNA COIL.”

Both songs are taken from LACUNA COIL’s latest album: Fresh, dark and extremely powerful are only a few of the best ways to accurately describe “Delirium”, which encompasses the strength and heavy approach of thrash metal from the 90’s twisted with goth elements into a modern style.
