Sydney’s Lo! literally made a splash last year with the video clip for “Orca,” produced by bass player Adrian Shapiro himself. The clip showed vocalist Sam Dillon as a vicious creature emerging from a vat of shiny pink goo, in front of an otherwise completely black background.

Pink in metal? The clip went viral over the love-it-or-hate-it discussion that followed… but even the haters had to admit that this clip showed an innovative approach to visual arts in heavy music.

Lo!’s third full length album “Vestigial” – set for release via Pelagic Records October 6th — aims to go even up to the next level. Guitarist Carl Whitbread comments: “This time we had much more time to all be together as a band and really work on the songs properly instead of the last-minute rush that usually happens. I think we all felt more connected now having Adrian back in the country.”

Following 2015 debut, “Birth And The Burial,” metal band Act of Defiance – featuring Chris Broderick on guitar, Henry Derek on vocals, Shawn Drover on drums and Matt Bachand on bass – now returns with sinister new album “Old Scars, New Wounds” hitting retailers on September 29th via Metal Blade Records.

Today, you can watch a full performance video for the album’s intro track, “M.I.A.” The video was put together by Robert Graves and is available below.

The album’s title – plucked from the track “Conspiracy Of The Gods” – stands as a metaphor for life in general. “Another Killing Spree” looks at hardcore drug use, while “Lullaby Of Vengeance” is an angry song about singing angry lyrics, and “Overexposure” is an anthem dedicated to not selling out. There is also some very topical material, most notably on “Mis-Information Age” and “Broken Dialect.”

“‘Mis-Information Age’ is very applicable in today’s social climate, where we can no longer blindly trust the source of facts that determine our view,” Broderick explains. “It asserts that we should be skeptical, making sure we have the truth and not someone’s propaganda, while ‘Broken Dialect’ conveys the idea that people can no longer hold a conversation with each other where their views differ, instead turning to sources that only support the view they want to hold on to.”

With every track featuring a blistering solo from Broderick, fans of his shredding can rest assured that the guitarist has not held back – though that was not his initial intention. “I actually wanted to tone it down a bit technically in terms of my solos, but the opposite happened! This was because I inadvertently ended up creating a few new techniques to use in my trick bag and saw their potential, so I worked really hard on the execution so they could make the record.”

7. Reborn

11. Rise of Rebellion

Death metal crew Reign Of Vengeance just released a new video for “In The Club With A Chainsaw,” which can be seen below.

The video footage was previously vaulted and hidden due to pressing legal matters and was later recovered from the darkest corner of vocalist Marshall Beck’s garage and edited by music video director and producer Matt Zane (Zakk Wylde, Dope, John 5, Combichrist).

Vocalist Marshall Beck comments: “There is nothing intellectual, political, or meaningful about this song or music video. It is straight across non-politically correct gore soaked and horror filled brutality for the sake of itself. If that bothers you then let Reign Of Vengeance know and we’ll dig you a safe space… (a grave).”
