Ten year old girls aren't usually known for their death metal vocal skills and this video certainly helps to confirm that. In this clip we have a young girl screaming at the top of her lungs while her (probably) jackass father sits in the background pounding away some metal drum beats. Even though her scream is about as annoying as you could possibly get, you got to hand it to her for being able to do it that loudly. It hurts my voice just listening to her screeching. Even though she gets an 'A' for effort, something tells me that this little girl's career path lies elsewhere. Now, where can I find Children's Aid's phone number?

Yorkshire-based rockers The Chevin are excited to release their newest music video for their newest single "Drive." Directed by Tyler Oliver (Feature film "Forget Me Not", The Bravery video "Unconditional"), the video is a post-modern tour de force, dripping in nostalgia with vintage footage of marching bands and classic cars juxtaposed with plenty of colorful electric light effects, with plenty of jittery editing. The overall effect is positively disorienting, but the music of "Drive" keeps the viewer grounded even as the voice of lead singer Coyle Girelli reaches soaring heights typically reserved for Roy Orbison or a young Bono.
In anticipation of their June 12th record release Hello Hum on Capitol Records/EMI, award-winning rock band Wintersleep present their first video for the song "In Came The Flood." Director Sean Wainsteim had the band perform while gliding through an atmospheric space (like they were sliders on a sound board) past stoic individuals lit by rhythmic, pulsing lights. The video for "In Came The Flood" was inspired by the distinct look of old live multi-camera television musical performances from the 70's and 80's. Technically, the video production presented a number of challenges; the band played while balancing on small platforms pulled along the up to 80 foot-long beams. The old lights used were operated and dimmed by many, many hands on ancient dimmer systems. Distortion was hand adjusted in post production and was inspired by what was happening musically in the song.

So if you like metal or rock music then you've probably been in a mosh pit or two in your lifetime. You know the mosh pit can be a pretty crazy place and it's not for the weak or feeble at heart since you can take some pretty crazy hits and smacks if you're right in the middle of it. Well the next time you're at a Killswitch Engage show, remember to never do or mimic any of the following! This kid brings a whole new meaning to pathetic as he puts on display some of the worst mosh moves ever seen. This guy is so bad that your grandmother could probably mosh better than this. So remember, unless you're looking for a black eye, leave these moves for your living room, preferably with no one else home to heckle you.

Directed by band members Christian Doble and Alicia Gbur, "the concept of the video/song is based on the feeling of living your life under water. People are talking all around you but it's all muffled. Maybe you're surrounded by a party but you've never felt so alone. The end half of the song represents breaking free from this solitude or melancholy."

"Fans of metal, hardcore, and nu-metal can all find a part of the song they can really get into! Plus it's one of our favorite, more experimental songs from the self-titled release!" Produced by Jimmie Myers (Underoath, August Burns Red), the darkly powerful clip finds the band giving a savage performance while doused in black latex paint that, Hasting assures, is much more fun to look at than it was to wear.
