RockmusicRaider Video - Gone In April - Threads of Existence - As Hope Welcomes DeathThe US-based band Gone in April continue to work on the success and successful implementation of their 2016 record Threads of Existence. The band around Julie Bélanger Roy already issued a very well-crafted video called As Hope Welcomes Death not quite a year ago. This one dealt with deathly matters of the straightforward, earthly kind, if we can call it that.

Now, their latest concoction Our Future Line touches upon the realms of parental abuse, isolation, desolation, nightmarish visions and their creatures that haunt you along the way. The video tells a pretty gruesome, gory and tough story, based on one of the record’s best track. 

The clip was shot at the beautiful location of Ozone Falls near Crossville, TN.Got hooked? Raid this some more...

My Silent Wake – There Was Death (2018) – Review

RockmusicRaider Review - My Silent Wake - There Was Death - Album CoverOnce desolation and doom in metal takes your fancy, you probably need to look no further than My Silent Wake. Former works like Damnatio Memoriae were already right up there with the likes of My Dying Bride and Paradise Lost. Yet, the band’s gothically tainted, painfully bleak and bare bone approach to Doom Death Metal always allowed them to carve out their own niche in this genre.

Then again – never shy of experiments – Ian Arkley launched himself into Invitiation to Imperfection in 2017. A somewhat pigheaded unplugged piece that the jury is still out for. Not unexpectedly, some off-flavors of the latter spilled into There Was Death. And this morphs this newest record into something much more controversial than other Doom Death Metal pieces currently on offer.Got hooked? Raid this some more...

RockmusicRaider Video - Infinitas - Skylla - Civitas InteritusThose having followed the RockmusicRaider webzine last year will certainly remember the Swiss band Infinitas and their 2017 album Civitas Interitus. The album was deemed delightful enough by the RMR deck crew to make it onto the 2017 Top 10 Records, too. And for good reason: Their tune still plays quite often on the mighty RMR music machine to this day.

Since the release of the album, the band went through a series of important line-up changes, but it appears that they are back on surer footing in the meantime. The band has been hard at work and just released their first video Skylla taken from the aforementioned album.

I like the way Infinitas captured the essence of their tune on this video without going all goofy on the audience with exaggerated theatrics.Got hooked? Raid this some more...
