After the Bloodstock bound UK metallers Gravil won last time out, this time there are a whopping seven bands all armed with a new video fighting it out for your votes.
Kicking things off this week are one of Rock Sins’ favourite bands, the very welcome return of Arch Enemy. The World Is Yours is the first single off the new Arch Enemy album Will To Power, out in September, and is accompanied by a space age video directed by none other than Patric Ulleaus – who is very well known for his futuristic videos. It’s a cracking return from Arch Enemy, with their now very well established frontwoman Alissa White-Gluz on typical searing form. If this is an indication of the new album, it could be very good indeed.
Next up are British black metal royalty in the shape of Cradle Of Filth. Heartbreak and Seance is the first single from their upcoming new album Cryptoriana – The Seductiveness of Decay, and the video is a typically dark and elaborate affair, exactly what one would expect from Dani Filth and chums. Expect this one to go down extremely well with Cradles loyal hordes of fans.
Continuing on to our second band, this week are UK alt-rockers Of Allies, with their new video offering for their single 17. Having attracted the attention of lots of the UK rock media including Kerrang and Radio One, Of Allies are hoping to continue their recently built momentum with this new black and white video. The song isn’t half bad either!
Of Allies fellow UK rockers Orestea are next up this time out, with their brand new single, which is also the title track of their new album, Elements. With the album due at the end of September, this is a perfect first chance to get a feel of what Orestea are all about if you’ve not heard them before. The video is definitely one for Summer too!
If energetic, metallic hardcore is your thing, then we recommend you instantly hit play on the new single from Comeback Kid – Somewhere, Somehow. The video shows the band inciting their usual live chaos at shows and festivals all across Europe over the course of the Summer. Taken from their new album Outsider which is out in early September, this is one that is likely to lodge itself firmly into your heads.
Staying with the realms of hardcore for our last two songs, next up is an absolute belter from Kent natives Cove. Their new single and video, Solis, is dark, angry and typically everything a lot of people want from their hardcore, with a video to match. If you hadn’t flipped enough tables to the Comeback Kid track, this should satisfy your needs nicely.
Where else could we end this week but with the song that’s got certain sections of society up in arms on social media? Stray From The Path’s political nuclear bomb of a track, Goodnight Alt-right has provoked a firestorm of epic proportions online, with many, many people on both sides of the issue weighing in whether they’re welcome or not. It’s an epic middle finger of a track from Stray From The Path to those who, shall we say, are not among the kindest in society. Nazi Punks F*** Off indeed.
Seven songs for you to choose from, seven videos, only one can win. The voting closes at 12 midday UK time on the 21st of July – get voting!
