Pittsburgh tech death metal machine Kamikabe have released a playthrough video for the song "Nefarious," which comes from their debut full-length Aberration Of Man, released in August 2012. The band offered this brief update to go along with the playthrough clip, "Something to gnaw on while you wait for new material. Jake Smatana left us in 2013. We have since recruited Dave Kirsch on bass, and have begun writing for our next album." Immediately following the Bloodletting tour North American tour which featured Gorod, Inanimate Existence and Vale of Pnath, Kamikabe had to deal with some shifts in their line up which sidelined the band for the remainder of 2013. Now in Spring 2014, that downtime will be coming to a close.

Check out his first review which covers Austrian Death Machine's new album Triple Brutal.

Monumental symphonic extreme metal band Kara Darahu (Finland) have released their first official video trailer featuring the track "The Anguish of the Black". The video was filmed and produced in Buenos Aires, Argentina and is directed by Victoria Pelejero. Camila Rodriguez, the 12 years old actress who is having nightmares in the video, is best known as a Phantom Girl in the awarded short film "La Chica Más Rara Del Mundo - The Weirdest Girl In The World." Director Victoria Pelejero comments on the filming: "It all started as let's make a 1 minute promo video for the upcoming album but then, instead of some motion graphics about the logo, we came up with the idea of filming this little simple story which works more like a trailer, combining some clichès of 80s movies (catholic girl, bloody toys, shadows and nightmares). What we didn't know is that a nightmare it would be." "The Anguish of the Black" will appear on Kara Darahu's debut album From The Depths Of Neverwell which is set to be released in 2014.
While some kids are busy taking selfie pix and posting them on Instagram/Twitter/Facebook or updating their Tumblrs with pictures of their favorite puppet from One Direction, others have taken time to study musical instruments and perform them better than many "professional" musicians twice their age, and to these few, bright blossoming performers, I say: Rock on!

Ever been walking through a graveyard during a full moon on Friday the 13th, or perhaps wanted to play notes unreasonably fast on a 6, or 7, stringed instrument connected to a device that makes the vibrations of those strings way too loud to the point where the sound is comparable an exploding Transformer or Power Ranger Megazord? If the answer to these questions is yes, or no, you should watch this video on how to Death Metal. It's something you could probably live without, but that's not what DEATH Metal is all about. Enjoy!

Blue Rodeo is on the verge of releasing their new album 'In Our Nature' (October 29th) and we're happy to share this teaser of their new video for the songs "New Morning Sun" and "Mattawa". When award winning director Chris Mills was asked to film a video for the first single from Blue Rodeo's new album he was given the task to come up with something unique that incorporated two of the albums songs, "New Morning Sun" and "Mattawa." Instead, what he delivered was an extraordinary film that incorporated most of the music from 'In Our Nature'. "After spending close time with the band, shooting and rehearsing all these great songs," says Mills, "The idea developed to try to make a video that encapsulated the feel for the ALBUM rather than just the songs. I shared this with the team, and was encouraged to 'run with it.'"
