Miss May I Drops Video for ‘I.H.E.’

Posted on July 29th, 2015 by MDuffy

Miss May I I.H.E.

Ohio metallers Miss May I went super heavy in both theme and music for their new video for the track “I.H.E.”

The clip focuses on a teenaged boy who is building a coffin with a harsh authority figure. As they drag it into the woods, the teen can’t take it anymore and turns on his abuser, tackling him and depositing the body in the previously empty coffin.

The intense visual is also complimented by Miss May I’s trademark brutal sound and skittish camera angles.

Currently on the Vans Warped Tour, Miss May I has an album entitled Deathless coming out Aug. 7, but in the meantime, check out the “I.H.E.” video after the jump. (more…)

Preview the Aristocrats’ New Album ‘Tres Caballeros’

Posted on June 2nd, 2015 by MDuffy

Tres Caballeros
The Aristocrats have a new album called Tres Caballeros scheduled to drop on June 23, and for those that just can’t wait to sample the new music, the trio has released a teaser trailer that covers the entire record.

Recorded at Sunset Sound in Hollywood, Tres Caballeros is the Aristocrats’ third full-length and represents another step in their layered fusion stylings.

“We’ve learned a lot since we started this band—four years, three studio albums, two live DVDs and about a billion notes ago—and I think our latest offering reflects this in all kinds of ways,” guitarist Guthrie Govan told Guitar World.

“The decision to road-test our new material in front of a live audience before commencing the recording process; the choice to record in a studio that had some thoroughly inspiring rock and roll ‘mojo;’ our sudden urge to become more bold and experimental with overdubs rather than feeling any pressure to record exclusively in a strict ‘trio’ format … all of this has had some kind of positive effect on the way the new record came out.

“Plus, I think the material on this album is some of the most interesting stuff we’ve ever written for each other, so … here’s hoping our noble listeners will like the finished product as much as we do!”

Check out the trailer after the jump.  (more…)
