Video Premiere: Lugosi – The Owls

Lugosi
“The Owls Are Not What They Seem” Video Debut
(Taken from the album, “Rise from the Grave”)

“The Owls Are Not What They Seem” is a song inspired by a quote from David Lynch and Mark Frost’s cult American TV series “Twin Peaks”. The seminal show follows the surreal and often disconnected investigation of the murder of a young girl in a small town and was a sensation when it first aired in 1990. Taking the dream-like tone of this series and expanding its initial field of vision, the song explores a dystopian future marked by uncertainty and fear, and the relationship between current actions and their possible consequences. The chorus name-checks the infamous Bohemian Grove, a campground where famously the Manhattan Project was planned, resulting in the atomic bomb which changed the world forever.

The video extends this metaphor into exploring the mythology of this location and the ceremonies carried out within it. Owned by the male-only Bohemian Club of San Francisco, California, whose membership is populated by high-ranking individuals from business, politics, education and the arts, the Grove has operated as a summer camp for the rich and powerful of American society since the early part of the 20th century. It’s mascot, and the background statue to the summer season’s opening ceremony “The Cremation of Care”, is an owl.

The video further extends the exploration of the ceremony and draws upon other symbolic practices carried out by other male-only closed and secretive orders and postulates the consequences of these actions. Musically, the song has a driving rhythm accentuated by a pumping and pulsating bass and guitar riff, which carries the listener through each verse and into the choruses, finally bringing the song into a culminating solo and a strong finish.

Dublin based Lugosi formed in 2016 consisting of JM Burr and Jimmy Rooney (of the band the Reverend JM’s panic worship), film maker and former Hungry Souls guitarist Alan Morton, and Neal Wright, formerly of Belfast’s Memento Mori. With influences ranging from the Misfits, Black Sabbath, Fu Manchu and Clutch and a love of the macabre, Lugosi’s songs range in subject matter from alien vampires, American Indian legends, horror, and witchcraft. A veritable sonic Ed Wood movie delivered through rock and roll.

Exclusive Premiere: Aborted Earth – MAGA (Make Ariana Grind Again)

We are proud to bring you the exclusive premiere of Aborted Earth’s new video MAGA (Make Ariana Grind Again) ahead of the release of their album Man-Made Mechanical Misery which is released on May 30th via Sudden Strike Records.

This band have always been very experimental and this release is no different. It’s a lot more industrial in its theme this time. Fitting of its title Man-Made Mechanical Misery.
There’s also a cover on this album. It’s excellent and one of my personal favorites from that particular band.

Frontman Jamie told us:
This release is possibly our most experimental, we have more emphasis on electronics and longer songs.
May 30th it will released via Bandcamp and CDs will be available at a later date.
This will be the last big release before we release album Number two. Which is in the demo stages now.

This pandemic has affected all of us in different ways, but people who were already vulnerable have been hit hardest.

Dublin Simon Community work with people who are homeless, sleeping rough or have health problems – they’re out on the streets, finding safe places for homeless people to go during this crisis.

The Simon Community is a wonderful organisation dedicated to helping the lives of those less fortunate than ourselves and they need our help right now more than ever. Thanks for the good work

Video Premiere: Cursed Sun – Fallen City

Video Premiere: Cursed Sun – Fallen City

Cursed Sun have released their new video/single Fallen City from their EP Vendetta which is available now via Sudden Strike Records.
We are proud to bring you the exclusive premiere of the video Fallen City!

A fitting release considering our current situation and not among their plans but nobody saw this coming!

Jones said to us: This is our new video by Cursed Sun, Fallen City from our latest EP Vendetta.
We were meant to be filming the music video for Replicant on April 5th, but the lockdown shut that idea down….
So we decided to do a video for Fallen City because the lyrics and video idea works perfectly for this particular time.

Stream Vendetta in full here!

Video Premiere: Death Can Wait – Scorned

Death Can Wait recently released their debut EP ‘Self Portrait’ through Burning Metal Records.

They are set to release a new lyric video for their track ‘Scorned’ which we are premiering here today.

This is a great example of the variety on this EP. When making the concept of Self Portrait for an EP, it has to of course have many layers…

By their own description:

Our music is a reflection of ourselves.

Contrast – tension – honesty.

A non-specific blend of sounds.

Get your lighters ready for this as it’s a track to encourage putting them in the air…

Self Portrait can be streamed in full here!
