The official video for FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH‘s surprising cover of the classic folk song “The House Of The Rising Sun” will make its online debut on Monday, March 24. The song is the next single from the Las Vegas-based band’s recently released album, “The Wrong Side Of Heaven And The Righteous Side Of Hell Volume 2”. The disc came out on November 19, 2013 and is the second half of a two-record set, with “Volume 1” coming out in July 2013.

A teaser for the “gasoline and rocket-fuel-soaked” “The House Of The Rising Sun” video — which was filmed in the desert — can be seen below..

According to The Pulse Of Radio, the original author of “The House Of The Rising Sun” is unknown and the song’s roots may date back to the 16th century.

The oldest known existing recording is by Appalachian artists Clarence “Tom” Ashley and Gwen Foster, who recorded it for Vocalion Records in 1934.

The most successful commercial version was recorded by the English rock group THE ANIMALS in 1964, which was a No. 1 hit in the U.K., the U.S., Sweden, Finland and Canada.

The members of FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH discussed in a recently released video clip how they changed up the classic song to give it a hard-rock vibe, most notably, by switching the song’s time signature from 6/8 to 4/4.

“We had the idea to do this for a while,” explained guitarist Zoltan Bathory. “The interesting thing about this song is that [it’s] actually in a time signature of 6/8 which is a waltz… and rock music and waltz doesn’t necessarily mix right.”

He continued: “So basically the challenge was: ‘How do we make this song work? How do we take away that goofy vibe and how do we make it into a rock structure?'”

“The Wrong Side Of Heaven And The Righteous Side Of Hell Volume 2” sold 77,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 2 on The Billboard 200 chart.

The first half of “The Wrong Side Of Heaven And The Righteous Side Of Hell” debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard album chart, selling 113,000 copies in its first week of release.

Boston-based blog Nefarious Realm premieres new music today from fellow Massachusetts natives Hivesmasher as part of “BMA Week,” a week devoted to Black Market Activities and the label’s fall releases. Stream Hivesmasher’s “The Shit Waltz” at this location.

Hivesmasher’s debut for BMA, “Gutter Choir,” hits stores October 23rd. The band’s own description of its sound is “a giant middle finger waved in the world’s general direction.”

Nefarious Realm’s own Matt Darcy also introduced Metalunderground readers to Hivesmasher back in August when he contributed a guest “Unearthing the Metal Underground” column on Boston bands. Read the full thing at this location. The following press release was also issued about Hivesmasher:

“An all-out destructive force, rooted in grindcore but freely veering off into hardcore, death metal, or thrash at will, Hivesmasher proudly revel in a distinctly ‘New England’ brand of bad vibes. One of the most visible, hardworking bands in the Northeast today, Hivesmasher are, despite their misanthropic boasts, proof that the altruistic DIY ethic is alive and well in the underground.

“A true-to-life depiction of Hivesmasher’s technical yet raw sound, Gutter Choir was recorded entirely in ‘living rooms, closets, and basements’ and is devoid of studio trickery. The album contains guest vocals from The Red Chord frontman and Black Market Activities boss Guy Kozowyk, as well as Fit For an Autopsy/Premonitions of War vocalist Nate Johnson and others.”
