Italian melancholic metallers SilentLie are giving fans another taste of their forthcoming sophomore full-length Equilibrium with the unveiling of their new music video for the second single ‘On My Skin’, a track about the story of the value of life to a son, through difficulties and hopes. It’s a smooth hard rock song, with a good rhythm, and a very catchy refrain.

Montreal’s Eternal Closure have a new album coming out in September and the third single they have ready for fans is ‘Dimensions Apart’. Since their conception ten years ago, they have been constantly evolving – what started as a metalcore cover band has become a proggy, djenty powerhouse with deep gutturals, piercing cleans, and three guitarists that pummel the listener from all sides. The single is the first time the band utilizes 7-string guitars, lending to extra thickness and variety. Main songwriter and guitarist Olivier Boitel details the track: “This one was mainly written by bassist Jonathan Lauzon, but had a bit of a different structure initially. It’s more-or-less the sequel to a song from our album Screaming In Silence called ‘Wake Up Dead’. It was also mixed with ideas he had for other songs that were never used. It’s a pretty straightforward banger, with me showcasing my grittier singing. I wrote and recorded the drums which was a lot of fun. Lyrically, it’s about the disconnect between generations that was created in part by technology.”

Nita Strauss has been hard at work on her next solo album, and now she’s offered up a taste, in the form of the explosive instrumental shredder ‘Summer Storm.’ Blast it below via it’s high-octane live music video. “Instrumental music is where my heart is,” Strauss commented, “and ‘Summer Storm’ might be the song I feel captures my personal style the most: cathartic, driving and emotional. While a lot of the upcoming record will have guest vocalists, I’m also so proud of the instrumental tracks and excited to officially unleash this one on the world!” [via Revolver]

Scowl have quickly and deservedly become one of the most talked-about bands in hardcore off the strength of their great 2021 debut album How Flowers Grow and their intense live shows, and now they’ve got a new video for ‘Fuck Around’ made up of footage from several of those live shows.
