Canadian heavy metal outfit, Threat Signal, has posted a music video for "Uncensored" online. The track comes from Threat Signal's October 2011 self-titled release (Nuclear Blast Records). "The video for 'Uncensored' captures my lyrical inspiration for the song almost exactly," said vocalist, Jon Howard. "People walk around every single day with their eyes closed; they are censored from reality. Most people truly believe, or have just convinced themselves, that the world is a great place, but in all honestly, most of it is not. Hate, greed, corruption, disease, war, lies, pollution, slavery, violence, crime, famine and many other issues plague our race. People need to wake up, look at real facts, and gather their own conclusions instead of believing hearsay or the media at face value. Most news is filtered and watered down. The director, Tommy Jones, saw my vision and ran with the ideas; he couldn’t have done a better job! Also you’ll see I ran into a major inspiration of mine in the street while filming. Enjoy."

Stick To Your Guns' new video for "Against Them All" can now be viewed above. The highly acclaimed new effort, Diamond, blends melody, heaviness, and sincerity into one solid sound that will cater to fans of Comeback Kid, Ignite and Rise Against. Jesse Barnett (vocals) states: "We are extremely happy with how this video turned out. A big thanks to director Carlo Opperman for that. 'Against Them All' is meant to encourage those that have been made to feel as if their way of life is incorrect simply because it does not fit within the box that has been created by those around them. So much time is spent on analyzing one another. People try to pin point just why others do what they do, or say what they say. The only language that we can all speak and understand is love. Along with that comes understanding.”
