Hey everyone! As the end of the year is approaching we’re all looking forward to the next one (I’m getting ready) and what we want from it, and more importantly how to be the best version of ourselves. Whether you join your first gym, or buy every product for that skincare routine you’re going to need some musical inspiration. Or maybe you don’t give a shit about any of that and you just want new music. Either way, I’ve got you covered! Let’s fucking go!!
THE ACACIA STRAIN — “UNTENDED GRAVES”
Think “National Geographic VS metalcore” and you’ll get this video! THE ACACIA STRAIN is a metalcore band from Chicopee, Massachusetts and they’ve recently dropped a music video for their song “Untended Graves”. The video features a variety of different types of birds with hard pounding riffs and wailing chords as the theme music. I love how the song is about death, but everything you see in the video is full of life — the contrast gives the song a full-bodied experience. It’s an interesting edit and the song is another banger from THE ACACIA STRAIN. Check out “Untended Graves” below and head over to their official website to show your support!
MINDSLOW — ‘NO ESCAPE’
Perfect “Monday Morning” energy. MINDSLOW is a hardcore metal band from France who’s released their third album ‘No Escape’. The sheer rawness of the vocals bring even more life to this already lively record. The band known as MINDSLOW is anything but slow — except for that killer breakdown! Highly recommend this band to anyone who needs a serious jolt in the beginning of the week to get you pumped up! Check out ‘No Escape’ below and head over to their official Bandcamp page to purchase!
EMPTY GRAVES — “SPIT SHINE”
You ready for something epic and new? EMPTY GRAVES is a deathcore band from East Moline, Illinois who has given us a new single this month called “Spit Shine”. It’s a great song for your workout playlist as well as knocking you out of bed in the morning. “Spit Shine” the music video is a hilarious nerf gun fight between the band and some highly skilled children at a birthday party. Between the playfulness of the characters and the hardcore slams of the song, this makes for an interesting music video — Happy birthday Kyle! Check out the new EMPTY GRAVES song below and head over to their official Bandcamp page for more music!
DEADVECTORS — ‘WEAPON’
Let’s fuck some shit up! Big warning for at-home moshers: screw moving the couch, just empty the room before you start (haha!). DEADVECTORS is a deathcore/insanity-core metal band partly from Pennsylvania and New Jersey (and they’ve been featured before)! Their latest album ‘Weapon’ is a mother’s dream record — fast, loose, and just plain crazy. Highly recommend this one to anyone who needs to feel supercharged and energized for the week! Check out ‘Weapon’ by DEADVECTORS below and stream it on Spotify here!
