LORD DYING – Release New Music Video


Portland, Oregon’s LORD DYING released sophomore album Poisoned Altars, earlier this year via Relapse Records. Recently the band completed work on a video for the latest single “A Wound Outside Time” from Poisoned Altars. The video seen HERE was directed and edited by Brett Roberts and Jon Meyer.

“We’re psyched to release this new video for “A Wound Outside of Time!” This vid pays homage to our favorite early 90’s Death Metal videos, like Bolt Thrower’s “Cenotaph,” Unleashed’s “Before the Creation of Time,” Entombed’s “Left Hand Path,” etc. We really love the quick flashes of cliched over the top imagery and slow motion head banging sequences that infest so many videos of that era. Enjoy, and catch us on the road,” says front man Erik Olson.

LEATHERWOLF – New Album Details


LEATHERWOLF have checked in with the following update:

Surprisingly, the tracks are very up to date, heavy and in effect very modern sounding metal, I was only privy to three sizzling tracks, all of which where superb masterpieces of real metal, everything you would expect from two absolute guitar hero’s. The tracks ‘Restless Fate’, ‘The End’, and ‘Red, White & Black’ were very well written, produced and arranged pre production versions.

Wade Black on vocals, Pat Guyton on bass, Dan Bruette (26 yr old pounder) on drums. More news to come in the near future for this expected late fall release.”
