“As I Drown”, the new video from the London, U.K.-based modern metal mob THE DEFILED, can be seen below. The song comes off the band’s second album, “Daggers”, which was released on August 2 via Nuclear Blast Entertainment. The cover artwork was designed and executed by Scott Chalmers, the band’s longtime photographer.

Comments THE DEFILED keyboardist The AvD: “‘As I Drown’ was one of the first songs written for this album. We had been playing it live for more than a year before we even booked the studio to record ‘Daggers’. It’s about a certain record company executive that brought THE DEFILED to a stand still for whole year. THE DEFILED is the most important thing in our lives so we took that very seriously.”

Adds THE DEFILED frontman Stitch D: “We shot this video in a mountain range in the north of England in the middle of winter. The wind was insane to the point of constantly blowing the drums and amps over even though we used rocks to hold them down. It was a fun day shooting but a very tough one.”

Having released its debut album “Grave Times” via Metal Hammer magazine in 2011, THE DEFILED has since enjoyed status as the U.K.’s biggest unsigned metal acts. Making huge strides forward on their own, their achievements as a self motivated and independent band in the world of heavy music, which includes sold-out tours, prestigious slots at the biggest festivals and a Golden God Award, is remarkable. Their unwillingness to compromise or settle for anything less than their ambition dictates has got them this far; this alliance with indie metal powerhouse Nuclear Blast Entertainment now sets the sky as the limit.

“Second Chance”, the new video from English rockers GLAMOUR OF THE KILL, can be seen below. The clip was filmed in Los Angeles with director Robby Starbuck, who has previously worked with ASKING ALEXANDRIA, ESCAPE THE FATE and SNOOP DOGG, among others.

Said GLAMOUR OF THE KILL bassist/vocalist Davey Richmond: “Working with Robby on the video was such a great experience and having the opportunity to shoot it in L.A. definitely had the added bonus of standing outside in sun with an ice-cold beer between takes. The heat turned out to be our enemy, though, as we all just looked like melting pale Yorkshiremen the second we started the performance part to the video. Fortunately, we had a great make-up team who managed to disguise this though! We all had such big ideas on how we wanted the video to look and Robby managed to capture that spot-on.”

“Second Chance” comes off GLAMOUR OF THE KILL‘s new album, “Savages”, which will be released on September 24 in the U.S. through eOne Music, September 20 in Germany and September 23 in the rest of Europe through SPV.

Produced by Joey Sturgis (ASKING ALEXANDRIA), this is the first batch of new material we’ve seen from GLAMOUR OF THE KILL since the release of “The Summoning”, which came out in 2011.

The new CD’s first single, “Break” features a guest appearance by VAMPIRES EVERYWHERE! lead singer Michael Vampire.

“Savages” track listing:

01. Break
02. Second Chance
03. The Only One
04. Live For The Weekend
05. A Freak Like Me
06. Heartbreaker
07. Rescue Me
08. Leave It All Behind
09. A Beautiful Day To Die
10. Tears Of The Sun

Fresh off a full U.S. tour with ESCAPE THE FATE and a European tour with PAPA ROACH, GLAMOUR OF THE KILL will be hitting the road with MOTIONLESS IN WHITE and THE DEFILED in the U.K. throughout September before heading back out the Europe with PAPA ROACH in November.

GLAMOUR OF THE KILL has been generating buzz ever since its debut EP, “Through The Dark They March”, came out in 2007. The success of the EP led to tours with BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE, DRAGONFORCE, AVENGED SEVENFOLD and most notably a performance on the main stage of Download festival in 2008.

GLAMOUR OF THE KILL is: Davey Richmond (lead vocals, bass), Chris Gomerson (guitar, backing vocals), Mike Kingswood (lead guitar, backing vocals) and Ben Thomson (drums, backing vocals).

Asking Alexandria: The UK’s bright young hopes?

More awesome new music heading your way this week, courtesy of a variety of killer bands.

Asking Alexandria are already one of the biggest UK metal bands of recent years, but with new opus From Death To Destiny, it really feels like they’re finally producing the music to match the profile. Stacked with great tunes and packing enough hooks to snag a killer whale, it’s an album to win over the doubters and, most importantly, lose all our shit to. Give it a go:

Debut Newsted album Heavy Metal Music is the first full solo outing from former Metallica bassist and general lad, Jason Newsted. The phrase “does what it says on the tin” is a bit misused at the best of times, but in this case, it’s pretty damn apt. Expect huge, thrash-infused heavy metal jams.

Speaking of huge, one of the most eagerly anticipated follow-ups of 2013 also drops today, as The Defiled look to continue staking their claim as the most exciting metal band to come out of London in years. Daggers picks up where ace debut Grave Times left off; thunderous, industrial-fused riffs and swaggering choruses that will have you singing your lungs out this year, whether you like it or not.

Finally, one of the nuttiest bands on the planet releases their third album today, and unsurprisingly it’s more of the same schizophrenic, genre-splicing madness. Late For Nothing is iwrestledabearonce’s third full-length and first with new singer Courtney LaPlante. Luckily, it’s just as badass as everything else they’ve done so far. As usual, expect the unexpected.

The boys are back

Avenged Sevenfold made a special guest appearance on Friday’s Metal Hammer Magazine Show on TeamRock Radio to talk about their upcoming UK tour, M Shadow’s dodgy barnet and why Hail To The King is the most important album of their career

Check it out below…

“Metallica and Maiden are still holding the torch, but we’re heading their way.”

AVENGED SEVENFOLD are returning to stake their claim as heavy metal’s new kings, and we speak to three of the OC icons in our huge cover feature as bold and bombastic new album Hail To The King prepares to smash all preconceptions and seat them at the table of metal’s true legends. It’s the biggest and best Avenged interview you’ll get this year and covers more ground with more members than anything else you’ll read – guaranteed.

Plus, as well as a killer competition to win a POP-UP TROOPER BEER BAR, our new issue also packs aFREE IRON MAIDEN SUPPLEMENT featuring exclusive photos, a free poster and even free Trooper Beer mats! DRINK FOR MEEEEE, DONINGTOOOON! Oh, there’s an awesome FREE CD featuring some of the hottest new acts around, too.

Also in the new issue, we tackle the heavy-as-fuck, monstrous beast that is the new PHIL ANSELMOalbum and ask the man himself what the hell was going on when he decided to make the heaviest album of his entire life, and herald the arrival of the most exciting band on the planet. CROSSFAITH have landed, ladies and gentlemen, and as we discovered when we headed out to Vegas to join the Japanese rave metal maniacs on this year’s Vans Warped Tour, they aren’t planning on going anywhere.

And speaking of fucking rad young bands, how badass are THE DEFILED? Extremely badass, that’s how badass. We catch up with the Londoners as their latest slab of hook-riddled industrial metal majesty prepares to muscle in on everyone’s end-of-year lists and install them as one of the best metal bands in the UK. We also hail the return of the phenomenal LETLIVE and find out exactly how they can possibly follow up one of the best albums of recent times, get an exclusive look into the new KORN album (featuring a very special bus ride with a certain Mr Davis…) and high five the legend that is JASON NEWSTED for being quite possibly the most metal motherfucker on the planet.

Oh, and there’s the small matter of our huge look at the incredible rise and rise of LAMB OF GOD, a cheeky SEPULTURA vs MALEFICE face-off, the prodigious prog machine that is KARNIVOOL, a chat with Turisas, Morbid Angel and Behemoth-approved heavy metal fashionista SHARON TOXIC, plus THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLANDEVICESATYRICONFIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCHFROM THE VASTLAND and our own Metal Hammer Guide To Paganism, courtesy of HUNTRESS. Huge.

That’s all in our new issue, ON SALE RIGHT NOW! And, if you happen to live near an Asda, get down there to get your copy, because it’ll be only £3.50 in all UK Asda stores! Pretty cool, right?
