RockmusicRaider Newsflash - Black Absinthe - Early Signs of Denial - Album CoverSome time back the Canadian band Black Absinthe got on RockmusicRaider’s mighty rock radar with their 2016 EP Early Signs of Denial. It was this raw mix or red-hot rock that really stuck and earned them a spot on the RMR blog.

This time they are back with a pretty cool video featuring their flagship track The Wild. To get the session recorded, they went a-pirating outside of Toronto a bit like the late Alestorm crew. And shot a jam video session on a pirate boat for kids (forsooth..) with a bunch of fans and friends. 

In the end, nobody got keelhauled in the process – so it appears at least.Got hooked? Raid this some more...

RockmusicRaider Review - Tethra - Like Crows for the Earth - Album CoverThe Italian metallers Tethra released their sophomore album Like Crows for the Earth in February of this year. And I daresay that their record left quite an impression on the RMR crew.

The band now doubled down and released a new and quite controversial clip based on their title track. Never fear, there is none of the gore-laden splatterfests prevalent in Extreme Metal on this video. Yet, Tethra use suicide as the venue to put their point across and this type of imagery is indeed powerful. Good stuff.

To this the band states:

“The deliberately strong and provocative images you can see in the video are meant to reflect on the indiscriminate exploitation that human beings are doing daily to the damage of the planet hosting us.Got hooked? Raid this some more...

RockmusicRaider Video - Gone In April - Threads of Existence - As Hope Welcomes DeathDo you remember Gone In April? Back in 2016 the US/Canadian band unchained their sophomore album Threads of Existence. A sturdy, yet dark Gothic and Symphonic Metal piece that garnered quite some attention in the RockmusicRaider officescape.

Well, they continued to work on their material and just unlocked the doors to their new video As Hope Welcomes Death – located at mid-point in the track list. Shot in a pretty dramatic, action-laden World War II inspired setting, the clip captures the essence of the track really well. A great screen performance, combined with a sound that fits the action. Well done!
