EXCLUSIVE PREMIERE: Black Coast Go Black (And White) With “Ill Minds” Video

There’s something timeless about a good old-fashioned black and white music video. You can probably think of ten off the top of your head. Eschewing colour and frivolity, the grainy, gritty monochrome video doesn’t take away from the heart and heft of the track behind it, giving the music a visual aid that never overpowers the riff. Today, we’re psyched to bring you a brand new video, in this style, from one of the UK’s brightest new ‘core bands, Black Coast. Don’t expect a narrative or outlandish concept, as previously mentioned this is a no fuss view of the band in their element – playing riffs in the dark and being moody as fuck.

Outliers // 2017

Welp. You’ve seen it. You’ve debated it. You’ve cried over it. But what’s done is done: Our list of the best albums of the year is behind us, and there is much rejoicing. But what about the albums we loved that didn’t make the cut? For those of you who…

Hey! Listen To Skies In Motion!

Being the death metal fanatic that I am, sometimes it’s good to take a step outside the now standardized brootal circle of releases I gobble up with glee and appreciate the varied, sometimes less thoroughly bludgeoning aspects of metal. When I find myself in this state of mind, I tend to revert to one of my surefire staples to give me a boost: metalcore. It seems like every time I write one of these I am singing the praises of some band or another in this most maligned of subgenres. But hey, everyone could a little metalcore in their life (he said sheepishly), and today I’d like to honor this most hallowed tradition by spreading the virtues of Skies In Motion and their debut album Life Lessons. If you’re a fan of either metalcore or melodic hardcore, put this band on your radar. There’s plenty to enjoy here.

What Heavy Blog Is Really Listening To – 8/4/17

For those who missed our last installment, We post biweekly updates covering what the staff at Heavy Blog have been spinning. Given the amount of time we spend on the site telling you about music that does not fall neatly into the confines of conventional “metal,” it should come as no surprise that many of us on staff have pretty eclectic tastes that range far outside of metal and heavy things. We can’t post about all of them at length here, but we can at least let you know what we’re actually listening to. For those that would like to participate as well (and please do) can drop a 3X3 in the comments, which can be made with tapmusic.net through your last.fm account, or create it manually with topsters.net. Also, consider these posts open threads to talk about pretty much anything music-related. We love hearing all of your thoughts on this stuff and love being able to nerd out along with all of you.
