The Burning Metal Awards Nobody Gives A Fuck About 2016 – Best Music Video – Xerosun

 

 

Something a lot of bands seem to miss the point on is the massive importance of a professionally made music video to showcase their work. Xerosun don’t fall under that umbrella anyway! 

Why is it so important? Sites such as Blank TV among others could potentially use it and introduce a band to thousands.

I don’t know does anyone watch Scuzz now. I’ll assume they do as it’s still alive… Needless to say, that’s another huge opening you will only get with a music video.

As for booking agents, management etc. I’m not talking your mate that can’t play an instrument. The top tier would demand a professional music video before even considering them.

Anyway, that’s enough on the business side of things. Not only is this an excellent song, it’s also one of the best music videos released this year full stop! I don’t know about that S&M shtuff now though, but sure if people want to bate each other with sticks or shove needles up their  holes or whatever it is they do. More power to them sure! 

Xerosun outdone themselves with this release and it’s a fucking shame this has less then 2,000 views. It deserves 200,000….

The Burning Metal Awards Nobody Gives A Fuck About 2016 – Best New Band – Jenova

 

 

As we are a new project ourselves, it’s probably fitting that the first award should be for the best new band in the history of 2016. 

There have been a few very good newly formed bands appearing this year, but none of them have had the year Jenova have. They played their first gig just over a year ago and since then have performed at “Siege Of Limerick”, reached the semi final of the Bloodstock Metal To The Masses competition, supported  Ne Obliviscaris and Abaddon Incarnate, along with many other achievements. 

At this point, any self respecting follower of the Irish metal scene has checked them out live. They really have been one of the most talked about bands this year and spread their name with their relentless gigging and vicious live show. 

I’ve been lucky enough to have worked with them now on three occasions, and they are as good a live act as you’re liable to see. They are extremely tight and knock the bollocks out of it anytime they play. 

Bigger things are coming for this band. They are already confirmed to play a festival in the UK next year with Warpath and starting work on their debut EP will they shall begin recording soon. 

Watch this band fly!!! 

Check out “Nail The Eye” here!
