On the release date of new EP, “The Healer,” there’s lots of news this week from the Helsott tribe. First comes a premiere of the band’s new promo video clip, “Astralive,” directed by Sicocis guitarist Rafael Ortega and available below.

“Filming ‘Astralive’ was a very enjoyable experience,” explains vocalist Eric Dow. “Raf was great to work with and Coop and I had fun scouting for a location in Arrowhead. We want to thank Mike Grieg for letting us set up camp.”

“I love how cold the video came out,” adds drummer Cooper Dustman. “It was actually blistering hot that day, we all got sunburns! Finding this remote spot in the mountains was adventurous considering the gps can only show so much. We scouted and shot this within a few days, and we’re proud of the final product.”

Second, Helsott is pleased to announce some upcoming tour dates, including the band’s first trip to Europe. The group will be supporting I Am Morbid (the new band from Morbid Angel’s David Vincent and Tim Yeung playing tracks from the first 4 classic Morbid Angel albums) and death metal legends Necrophagia.

“We have been working so hard to fulfill our goals,” states Eric Dow. “Taking our brand of Pagan Death Metal overseas has always been an ultimate goal for this band and now that we have the opportunity we will take full advantage of it. Europe… Helsott is finally coming!

The run is immediately followed by joining the west coast dates of the just announced Tengger Cavalry / Felix Martin tour.

“We are excited to be joining our label mates, Tengger Cavalry, and the amazing Felix Martin on a west coast leg of their North American Raid,” explains Eric. “This is a unique line-up and fans are in for a treat!”

After that metallic rite of passage of being banned from the House Of Blues, today the Buffalo-based hardcore band Every Time I Die shares a powerful video for latest single “Map Change.” The track appears on 2016 album “Low Teens,” which was nominated for the Alternative Press Music Award for Album of the Year.

The “Map Change” video offers a cinéma vérité look at the hometown of vocalist Keith Buckley, guitarists Andy Williams and Jordan Buckley, drummer Daniel Davison, and bassist Steve Micciche. In creating the video, director Kyle Thrash spent a mid-winter week in Buffalo and emerged with a bleak yet beautiful, Herzog-esque portrait of American despair.

With help from the band, Thrash documented the everyday lives of the city’s locals and found his subjects open to sharing their most intimate moments. As a result, “Map Change” gives an up-close look at life in trailer parks and strip clubs, at butcher shops and Bingo games. Moving from abandoned churches to high school wrestling matches to roadside fistfights with a whiplash urgency, the video captures the dead-of-winter feeling of the world quite possibly coming to an end.

Hailing from Northern Ireland, the symphonic power metal band Selene is set to release second album “The Ravages of Time” on June 23rd.

Since forming in 2013, Selene has previously released two EPs and debut album “The Forgotten,” followed by a series of shows across Ireland to support the release, including a main stage appearance at Ireland’s biggest metal festival The Siege of Limerick.

“The Ravages of Time” continues to develop the sound Selene established on that debut release, showcasing the angelic soprano voice of Shonagh Lyons along with epic orchestration and heavy riffs, while also taking a more mature direction that is sure to satisfy fans of bands such as Nightwish, Sonata Arctica, Kamelot and Serenity.

Band founder and main songwriter John Connor had the following to say: “‘Ravages of Time is a much more ambitious release than the first album I think. Stylistically we have gone to more extremes than before, with the album as a whole being faster and heavier than previous releases and leaning more on our Power Metal roots, but on the other side of the scale, there are songs such as ‘This Life’ which is much softer and emotionally driven than any previous songs. We spent a year non-stop working on this release and I don’t think it will disappoint.”

This release will be followed by a show in Voodoo, Dublin with folk metal legends Cruachan on July 15th. The new album’s track listing is:

1. New Era
2. The Great Heart
3. Ashes
4. Calm Before the Flame
5. Burning Bridges (Ft David Balfour)
6. If Tomorrow Never Came
7. Our Regrets
8. Kingdom
9. Wonderland
10. This Life
11. The End of Time

Amplified Ale Works is pleased to announce a newest beer collaboration with none other than Motorhead.

The “Born to Lose” IPA is a boldly aggressive West Coast-style IPA, befitting of the band’s loud, aggressive style. The 6.5% IPA is brewed with Cascade, Simcoe and Citra hops that provide an earthy, resinous aroma with notes of fresh citrus.

In an ode to Motorhead”s British roots, the beer was also brewed with Maris Otter, a premium British malt that brings a sweet balance to the beer’s bold bitterness.

The limited edition beer will be sold directly from Amplified’s two San Diego locations and will also be available for purchase online here for refrigerated shipping throughout California. The can features an original design of band members in a dystopian “Born to Lose” future from LA-based artist Jack Gregory. The follow up beer in the series, “Live to Win” IPA, will be released later this year.
