A new video of the week contest was long overdue here at Rock Sins, and so we have seven very different videos by seven very different bands for you to check out this time!
Adam “Nergal” Darski may have put his horns and warpaint back on in the UK last weekend when Behemoth recently headlined Heavy Scotland, but the latest video for his other project finds him in the desert. Me and That Man, Nergal’s country-folk-doom project, have released their latest single, Cross My Heart And Hope To Die, and is, as one might expect from the title, quite the deep, introspective track. With a very impressive video to match, we wouldn’t be surprised if this is the choice of many for this weeks’ top video.
DIY London based punks Dead! are also up for video of the week this time around, having just dropped a new video for their single Enough Enough Enough. Set to support none other than the legendary Blondie in London next month, this is a taste of what anyone who’ll be heading along to that show will be set to witness. Are Dead! your choice for video of the week? Then get voting for them.
From London to Modena, Italy now via France and potential pop-rock superstars to come, Halflives. Their new video for the track Echo was filmed on location at a very impressive French mansion (from what we can tell) and the track has the same impact as the video’s grandiose surroundings. If Echo has echoed it’s way to being your favourite video this week – then get voting!
One for the goth fans amongst our readership, Wednesday 13 is back and he’s returned to his dark roots on this new track titled What The Night Brings. With a new album, Condolences, due out at the beginning of June (just in time for him to headline the Dogtooth Stage at Download 2017), this is an impressive entree to the main course of the album, and one we think his fans will be very happy with.
Back to homegrown talent, and Liverpool specifically in the form of pop punkers Sheepy, with the video for their new single Home. The video is a tale of hitchhiking and road trips on the journey to get, well, home, as the title might have suggested. It’s a little more indie than we might often feature here on Rock Sins, but the boys have been getting some good attention for this track recently and you may have even heard them on Soccer AM if you’re of a footballing persuasion. If home does it for you, vote for Sheepy! (there’s a T-shirt in that somewhere, surely…)
Ah, Thrice. Where would so many of us be without their magnificence, most recently of all on last year’s epic album To Be Everywhere Is To Be Nowhere. Hurricane is the latest single from that album, and the video is a typically atmospheric tale which needs to be watched properly in full to be fully appreciated. We reckon you’ll pick up additional details on repeat viewings too. Will Thrice win out this week? We wouldn’t be surprised.
Lastly this week, are Polish progressive outfit Riverside, who are on the comeback trail following the very sad death of their guitarist and founder Piotr Grudzi?ski in February 2016. The video for the instrumental track Shine is incredibly complex, with blink and you’ll miss it visual effects, all interwoven to create what is a very compelling video. If prog is your thing, then Riverside may well get your vote.
There we have it. 7 videos, only one can win. Voting closes at 12:00 midday on Tuesday the 11th of April (UK time). Time to get voting.Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.
