British independent band WEAK13 have released the ‘Loyal Coward’ music video set in the Viking Age today (January 13th 2018) featuring the Svartland Living History Society. who hail from Wolverley, near Kidderminster. Their latest music video, taken from their album ‘They Live’, is definitely the most commercial sounding WEAK13 song to date but nothing is ever quite what it seems in regards to how the band functions.

Check out the new video below:

Normally a WEAK13 tune is coated in semiotics, subliminal messages or loud subtext but the first glance of ‘Loyal Coward’ appears surprisingly landmine free, extremely mainstream and very radio friendly. Whilst on the surface it appears as if this is them selling out it’s more than likely that this a clever rouse rather than a U-Turn but are they really playing with people’s minds?

Sorrow Plagues Unleash New Video ‘Relinquish’ & Reveal Album Launch Show Details

Sorrow Plagues have released a new music video for the song ‘Relinquish’ which is the first single from the forthcoming sophomore album ‘Homecoming’ out May 27th.


Sorrow Plagues, is the Brainchild of British musician David Lovejoy. The new album ‘Homecoming’ ventures into new territory with added elements of post-rock, and even including some contemporary influences, whilst still maintaining the atmospheric Black Metal sounds that Sorrow Plagues is known for. This is David Lovejoy’s most ambitious effort so far. 

Lovejoy talks about the meaning of the song: “The song is about the importance of living in the present moment and realising that being stuck in the past and worrying about the future is the cause of a lot of our problems. I got the idea for writing lyrics on the topic whilst reading “A New Earth” by Eckhart Tolle.”

The video was filmed by Luke Bateman.

Bleed Again Unleash New Video ‘Decimate’ Plus Album Launch Show Details And Tour Announcement!


Fresh and exciting modern metal act, Bleed Again from the south coast of the United Kingdom strike hard with their massive melodic metalcore that is comparable to the likes of American heavyweights, Killswitch Engage and Trivium in both musical style and memorable energetic live performances.

Bleed Again has dropped their video for ‘Decimate’, the second track is taken from their highly-anticipated debut album, ‘Momentum’. The album will be released through recently signed US label Sliptrick Records on May 1st.

The new video lyric video for ‘Decimate’ makes quite the impact with defiant lyrics such as “You won’t be able to brain wash us all, you won’t see us fall!” which is delivered with intense urgency. Bleed Again is in no shortage of infectiously catchy hooks and melodies, placed on top of punishing riffs, relentless drum work and ferocious vocals. The right factors that will have you headbanging and singing along!

Vocalist, James Dawson talks about the musical and lyrical inspirations of the song: “Decimate has definitely been influenced by my love for mainstream hardcore. We wanted to make a track that would have very little, or zero singing on it, a track that hits hard throughout. When we were writing this song, we knew straight away that it wasn’t like anything we had done before. We knew it would stick out on the album, but in a good way.”

“Lyrically this song has many different meanings. My first thoughts were that we take for granted what our past generations did for us in this country in WW1 and WW2. This grew into more political thinking in that I feel at times as if the government are constantly trying to scare us and control us into believing everything they say. Also, I was thinking at times that our past generations had a more simple life, even if it wasn’t a very wealthy one. I feel at times that if we are to repair what I believe are very deep cracks in our society’s, that we may have to destroy everything and start again. Rebuild.”
