Enslaved re-sign with Nuclear Blast and release music video for “What Else is There?”

There is ample reason to celebrate: Enslaved have once again joined forces with Nuclear Blast, to spread the music of the Norwegian avant-garde metallers all around the globe. With that, band and label renew a collaboration that has been ongoing for around ten years and two years ago produced the universally lauded album “E”.

Band founding member and guitarist Ivar Bjornson stated about the re-signing:

Amon Amarth premiere historically accurate music video for “Shield Wall”

Heavy metal overlords Amon Amarth have released a brand new video for their stomping, anthemic call to arms “Shield Wall”. The rabble-rousing new video chronicles the plight of an enemy ship come to invade a Viking village. But, as frontman Johan Hegg’s gutteral growl chants “Vikings, Raise The Shield Wall, Hold The Front Line, Fight Til Death”, the fate of the enemy becomes uncertain. Who will emerge victorious from battle? Watch the video below.

Equilibrium releases new music video for “Final Tear”

The new masterpiece of German epic metal pioneers Equilibrium, “Renegades”, is out now. The album is heralding a watershed, the turn of an era for this genre. This is metal at its most epic and most monumental, bearing huge songs, resting firmly in the Zeitgeist with a massive, modern production and sporting quite a number of eclectic influences. Above all, it’s still Equilibrium - quite possibly more than ever.

Progress without estrangement is a rare craft that very few bands truly master. All too often, a band ventures so far from its roots that it loses its trademark sound. And every so often, a band’s stagnation drains all of its charm.

Finding that rare balance between the two is a huge task not easily accomplished. And yet there is a band that has been coming close to that perfect balance more and more over the course of the past few years. A band that, ironically, already bears that balance in its well-known name: Equilibrium.
