Exclusive Video Premiere: Oracle – No God Waits For You



We are very proud to be the chosen media source to exclusively bring you Oracle’s debut music video ‘No God Waits For You’. 

The lads have really been building a name for themselves and are spoken of in high regard by prominent members of the Belfast scene. With many tipping them to win the Belfast based Metal To The Masses competition, in which the victor goes onto play the New Blood stage at Bloodstock 2018. 

They released this statement. 

“No God Waits For You” is based on the fall of mankind, after Cthulhu has its way with the world we are left in a state of peril and despair. The Oracle in the video references humanities tendency to look for spiritual guidance when all hope feels lost.

The video was shot by Full Scope films, also a massive thank you to Charlotte for being our actress on the day.”



We are Oracle, a five piece groove metal band from Belfast, our debut ep “Tales Of Pythia” touches on topics which are political, mythological, spiritual, and occultic, whilst also dealing with issues that are relevant to our personal lives.

Tales Of Pythia will be released on 10/03/2018, all pre-orders will be delivered a week early on 03/10/2018.

Pythia derives from Greek legend, She was the Oracle of Delphi which leaders and elite from all around the world would go to seek guidance and prophecy.

“Tales Of Pythia” is based on the idea that we all live in a prophetic time where a lot of people remain in a state of blissful ignorance, and are too busy occupied with materialistic and secondary distractions to care.

“No God Waits For You” is based on the fall of mankind, after Cthulhu has its way with the world we are left in a state of peril and despair. The Oracle in the video references humanities tendency to look for spiritual guidance when all hope feels lost.

DARKEST HOUR: Irish Premiere Official Video For “Enter Oblivion” As US And European Tours Approach



Washington, DC-based metal quintet DARKEST HOUR has filmed an official video for the song “Enter Oblivion,” which hails from their eleventh LP, Godless Prophets & The Migrant Flora, released in 2017 through Southern Lord.


The new video for “Enter Oblivion” was directed by DARKEST HOUR vocalist John Henry with director of photography Ben Hoffman and produced and edited by Chad Fjerstad. Henry states on filming the video, “I wanted to find a location that I felt would represent the nomadic theme of the song. When I came across Rainbow Basin outside of Barstow I immediately knew it was the right spot. There’s a real beauty about the bleakness and harshness of the desert which stands out as the true star of the video.”


Adds guitarist Mike Schleibaum, “We chose the song ‘Enter Oblivion’ because it shows a different side of the album then we first presented. This song sits in the middle of the album and although it doesn’t crush with the same speed as the others it presents a depth that is all its own. The style of this song really allows for the band to breath sonically and the production of Kurt Ballou to really stand out on this track, especially in those drums! This is song for those who live outside of the borders of man and the laws of nature. For those who have found themselves in the act of constantly searching.”


The quest that DARKEST HOUR, the D.C. melodeath warriors, have been on for more than two decades is one that is wholly about tearing faces off with precision, intent, and riffs. The band’s most recent album, last year’s great Godless Prophets And Migrant Flora, showcased them knowing exactly what kind of music they wanted to make and how to make it.


Produced by Kurt Ballou (Converge) at his Godcity studo, Godless Prophets & The Migrant Floracontinues to solidify the long-running DARKEST HOUR‘s legacy as a major metal powerhouse. Raw, complex, melodic, yet cutting with razor blade precision, Godless Prophets & The Migrant Flora is a fierce album which shows the long-running band as lethal and ravenous as ever.


Godless Prophets & The Migrant Flora is available on CD, black vinyl LP, picture disc LP, and all digital platforms via Southern Lord; find ordering options at the label’s webstore HERE, and via Bandcamp HERE.



Following several crushing runs through different regions of North America in support of the album, DARKEST HOUR is about to embark on the first of two new upcoming tours in two weeks. Beginning February 16th, the band will storm across the eastern US through February 25th, with support from Whores and Extinction A.D.


DARKEST HOUR has also announced another new tour in recent days, which sees them hitting Europe this Spring. The tour runs from April 5th and runs all the way through the 29th and sees them paired with Cephalic Carnage and Harlott supporting Havok.

Irish Progressive Sludge Metallers zhOra Release New Video ‘Riverchrist’ Taken From Their Album ‘Ethos Pathos Logos’



Irish progressive sludge powerhouse ZHORA have released a new video for their track ‘Riverchrist’, taken from their sophomore album Ethos, Pathos, Logos which was released on 27 October 2017.

Premiered on Metal Injection, we now bring you their amazing new video. Tia and Ivan of Goat Planet put a lot of work into this video and it really shines through! 

It’s early days in 2018, but I’ve got a strong feeling this will be our Irish video of the year come December. I just can’t see this been beaten! It’s so unique and different from what heavy bands usually do with their promo videos. 



Riverchrist’ revolves around the fictional character ‘Sin Eater’ and his dominion over vast lands and its people. Written through a first person perspective, his malevolent yet precarious demeanor illustrates the fictional deity and his world of no mercy. 

The Irish sludge metal group have also announced two upcoming shows: 

February 6th with THE FACELESS




Pick up the new album Ethos, Pathos, Logos now via Big CartelBandcampiTunes and all other digital outlets.

FORBIDDEN SEASONS Drop Video For New Single ‘THANK YOU FOR THE VENOM’ New Album ‘PROMISE’ Out March 16th


Italian metal band Forbidden Seasons recently premiered the lead single, “Thank you For The Venom,” from their forthcoming, highly anticipated debut album, Promise, which will be available on March 16th from This Is Core Records. Following the single release, the band has now dropped an incendiary new video for the track.



The video for “Thank You For The Venom” was produced by Lucernafilms and features actress Riae Suicide. The song, and album, was composed by Forbidden Seasons with artistic direction and recording from Heavy Tones Recordings Studio and mixed/mastered at Studio Fredman.


“The song “Thank You For The Venom” talks about an ill relationship with someone very dear to me. They played with my life; tried to take advantage of my weaknesses and of my unconditional love and all they did was turn my love into hatred, into venom, consuming my soul. When in times of need this person tried to get back in touch, however they managed to make me feel even worse. They made me numb even though in my veins flows their own rotten blood.” – Mark Seasons (vocals)


Combining elements of metal, metalcore and post-hardcore, Forbidden Seasons crafts a well-balanced sonic assault that is equal parts vicious and melodic as heard on the band’s standout, first track “Thank You For The Venom.”


Forbidden Seasons formed in 2016 and is made up by 5 members, Mark, Symon, Danny, Paul and Fede. The band made a quick impact with their first single “Illusion” in 2016, which was followed by the release of “Paramnesia” EP in January 2017.

PHILIP H. ANSELMO & THE ILLEGALS: Choosing Mental Illness As A Virtue Streaming In Full Within Alongside A Live Video Of ‘Finger Me’ Record Out Now Via Housecore Records



The wait is over! Choosing Mental Illness As A Virtue, the raging new full-length from PHILIP H. ANSELMO & THE ILLEGALS, has descended upon the masses since January 26th. We offer you the full album to stream alongside a live video of “Finger Me.”


Choosing Mental Illness As A Virtue will see release on CD, vinyl, and digital formats in North America via Housecore Records and in Europe by Season Of Mist. Physical order bundles are currently available via the Housecore Store at THIS LOCATION. For digital orders, point your browser HERE.


“Their creative input is fucking fantastic,” beams ANSELMO. “This is something that was very different from the first record where I was very staunch. I wanted it to be ugly. I was very firm that I was writing every fucking note. The thought was, ‘This is my contribution to ugly music right this second in a heavy metal vein.’ That was great at the time. Walk Through Exits Only made its own little statement that I am a free agent and I belong to no single band. This time, I worked closely with everyone. We tried different ideas together. It made the spirit of this thing come alive even more because of the enthusiasm these guys bring. It enhanced the integrity of the project.”



PHILIP H. ANSELMO hasn’t just paved his own path; he’s bulldozed it with his bare hands. His primal, powerful presence led Pantera to Grammy Award nominations, sales of twenty million albums worldwide, legions of diehard fans, and an indisputable heavy metal legacy. Simultaneously, Down carved out a distinct niche with a gold-selling debut and three more critically acclaimed releases. Superjoint made a triumphant return in 2016 and in the midst of everything, ANSELMO joined Scour alongside members of Pig Destroyer and Cattle Decapitation and teamed up with horror icon Bill Moseley for the Bill & Phil project. However, PHILIP H. ANSELMO & THE ILLEGALS speaks to a certain need for him.


Instead of treading the same ground, ANSELMO and his bandmates in THE ILLEGALS, open up another doorway altogether with their 2018 sophomore release, Choosing Mental Illness As A Virtue. It’s extreme, abrasive, aggressive, and anthemic. In other words, it’s purely ANSELMO.


Following up 2013’s Walk Through Exits Only, this new body of work hinges on no holds-barred lyrical misanthropy and insurgent instrumental intricacy as it sharpens any and all edges to guillotine precision. “It ain’t pretty,” ANSELMO exclaims. “It’s more straightforward and cohesive to a degree, but it still goes off the rails here and there. We went through it song after song cut and fucking dry. I was in a specific mindset. I wanted to further my endeavors into a genre of music that I adore. As all ten songs blow by, I wanted an unforgiving feel. This is what was on my mind. It’s a recorded capsule of time.”


Following a successful maiden touring cycle for THE ILLEGALS, the frontman hunkered down at his home studio in Louisiana to record what would become Choosing Mental Illness As A Virtue in 2014 and 2015. The lineup shifted as Stephen Taylor (Superjoint) transitioned from bass to guitar, Mike DeLeon (Flesh Horder, Being Killed, ex-MOD et al) joined as a guitarist, and Walter Howard (Grieved, Oppressive Force) took over bass duties. Meanwhile, Jose Manuel “Blue” Gonzalez (Superjoint, Warbeast) held down the drums. Through rigorous rehearsals and writing sessions, a framework for the new music took shape as ANSELMO wholeheartedly welcomed the ideas of his cohorts.
