Here we are, once again, facing a Periphery track from their upcoming double album, Juggernaut. This one comes to us from Alpha and I have to be frank with you: I love it. It’s so much better than the other tracks, which I did not care for all that much. This has dynamics, it kicks and bucks and it goes places. Head on over the jump to stop reading my two-bit opinion and listen to the song!

dtp-poozers-video

With the advent of Z2 in each of its halves—Sky Blue and Dark MattersThe Devin Townsend Project rocket ever forward onto huge, musical things. We can all admit that Devin Townsend is an unstoppable force in our world, but with Inside Out Music and Century Media in his corner, his power is immense. Much like Ziltoid, honestly.

That said, we are now blessed with a music video for Dark Matters‘ “March of the Poozers,” the part of the new Ziltoid tale where the Poozers rally together and invade Earth under the guide of the now-upset Queen Blattaria. But you know, maybe listen to the album to get the whole story. Please enjoy and be terrified by the lyric video. And I even made you some wallpapers!

Politics and music frequently go hand-in-hand, but doing it well can be a difficult task to pull off, particularly without stirring some controversy in the process. Take, for example, Orange County’s Stick To Your Guns, who have ruffled a few feathers with their politically-charged video for ‘What Choice Did You Give Us?’, the second track to be released from the forthcoming album Disobedient. The video is animated brilliantly, turning a microscope on hot button world issues like war, pollution, and most recently, police brutality. Check it out after the jump.

myrkur studio

This year, we were introduced to a post-black metal rising star in Myrkur, a one-woman project featuring Amalie Bruun of New York indie pop duo Ex-Cops. The debut self-titled EP was critically well received, albeit slightly controversial; there are those (read: idiots) who accuse Relapse and Bruun of capitalizing on an in-vogue genre or that somehow the work of Myrkur is invalidated because of Bruun’s gender and experience in pop music. Fortunately, that’s not stopping the project from moving forward to a full-length album, which has picked up a bit of “star power” as far as black metal is concerned.
