Fight those that oppose change and individuality – that’s the spirit with which EMPYREAL SORROW decided to mash up one of the most powerful songs from their debut album „PRÆY“. And with the producer and electronic artist LXEKR they found the perfect partner to give a new face to „A Night Without Armor“. The Industrial-based remix „Night Re-Armoured“ remains the original song’s epic spirit and raw energy, yet discovering another refreshing facet of what lies within EMPYREAL SORROW’s Melodic Death Metal. This unconventional song is the worthy conclusion to the new 4-track-EP „Harm(ony) Within“ out on the 24th of December
Greece’s power metaller EMERALD SUN shows the first video from their upcoming album “KINGDOM OF GODS” (release date 01/28/2022). With HELLBOUND, metalheads get a first foretaste of the new album. The first video will surely not only please fans of Quentin Tarantino or John Carpenter. Singer Stelios “Theo” Tsakiridis: “We are all fans of Carpenter and Tarantino, we think vampire ladies are sexy, we have a song that fits this concept … and that’s the result! We are very proud of the video and are curious how this will be received by the people.
Hot on the heels of their debut album, Australia’s Shake The Temple has announced the release of their second music video for their latest track ‘The Devil’s Approach’.
A colossal production filmed in a secret location; this music video is something to behold.
A cinematic, movie-like setting in a maze of giant timber pillars- the video conjures up memories of 70’s horror and vintage metal that reflects on the nature of this new band. Bringing such theatre so rarely seen in music videos these days, it is a credit to the trio that they can break the norms for a band hailing from a usually restrained local rock scene.
According to lead singer John Joseph, the production was originally a pipe dream.
“I wanted to capture the origins of the song and I knew it was going to be a big effort, so I started with a storyboard, then shared it with our video director, and incredibly he had the balls to take it on!”, laughed Joseph.
Showing you do not need a Hollywood budget to pull off a cinematic feat, SHAKE THE TEMPLE’s sheer determination, vision and creativity is on full display.
From the ‘Stranger Things’ teenage victim to the evil-eyed villain, The Devil’s Approach music video commands attention right to the very end. Incredibly well filmed and edited, supported by a powerful live performance by the band – It is a video release not to be missed.

The new album will feature Danny Needham (Venom), Magnus Rosen (HammerFall), Scott McClellan (who helped co-write the album) and Greg Smith who performed with Alice Cooper, Rainbow, Blue Öyster Cult, and many more.
Talking about the new album, Tony says: “This new album is probably the most “Tony Martin” a Tony Martin album has ever sounded!! It’s got several surprises that will lift people’s eyebrows I am sure. Largely but not entirely based around the riffs of Scott McClellan, new to the world scene he has proved to be a worthy partner in crime for this release… I was able to make some great songs out of the riffs he was coming up with which is very similar in the writing sense to that which I experienced with Tony Iommi. Different sound and style but the riffing talent that someone like Scott has are very cool.”
Tony states that the album is the “diverse, melodic, powerful, thought-provoking and of a standard high as ever I have worked on.” He believes “there are stories still to tell, songs still to be sung and with this album. I feel it’s achieved everything I could have wished for.” Tony is “grateful to the people who have given their extra talents in appearances on this recording. It’s been a challenge in COVID lockdown, getting everyone’s performances from across the world, but in another way, it was a perfect opportunity to get it done.”
Battlegod Productions label founder Peter Kotevski says that “Tony Martin is one of the best Metal vocalists of all time and lyrically brilliant and musically fantastic, a True Heavy Metal Legend.”
Tony Martin, is an English heavy metal vocalist, best known for his time fronting Black Sabbath, initially from 1987 to 1991 and again from 1993 to 1996.

Off their latest album SYSTEM OF DIVISION, the video highlights a tale of an Aussie farmer facing the battles that come with tackling our sunburnt land.
“The Torrents Fall is a quintessentially Australian tale of an Aussie farmer who is battling a crippling drought and facing the loss of his livelihood until the rains finally come and bring salvation. It showcases resilience and strength in the face of adversity,” explains singer Jamie Gaitskell, “since writing The Torrents Fall in 2019, it’s been a staple in all of our live sets, and it’s personally one of my favorite songs to perform.”
“We recently celebrated National Agriculture Day in Australia (November 19),” guitarist Brett Dunsire explains, “so the timing is perfect for everyone to celebrate all that the farmers do to feed the nation, often through much hardship.”
The video, directed by Peter Renzullo and shot across two very classic Australian locations, aims to pack an emotional punch- highlighting the strong story in the track. With personal experience amongst some of the band members working the land, the band hopes to showcase and rally support for local farmers.
