Following UK emo quintet KidBrother coming out on top last time out, five more bands are vying for your video of the week votes this time out, and we are starting off with some old friends, before moving on to some fantastic UK talent.
Danish metallers Forever Still were one of our favourite new acts of 2016, and their frontwoman Maja Shining has come up with something quite special here. This video for a special rendition of Scars may just feature Maja and her piano, but it’s a beautiful version of a great song, one that may win new fans over that hadn’t previously taken to the band, as well as delighting their existing fans too.
Newcastle rockers Tomorrow Is Lost are the first new UK band to feature in this weeks’ video of the week contest, with their debut single Insane. They sound like a band who wanted to make a big statement with their debut single, and Insane is certainly that. The track is a throwback to the rock power ballads of old, but in a very modern way. With this being the first in a trilogy of singles telling the story of “The Shadowman”, it’ll be very interesting to see what comes next.
Next up are another new UK act to our ears, metalcore collective Death Blooms with their new single Last Ones. It’s a dark video with plenty of foreboding imagery mixed between footage of the band who will be supporting none other than the Insane Clown Posse and Mushroomhead across the UK next week – so get acquainted with them early!
UK hard rockers Stormbringer are next up this week with their excellent single Dying Breed and it’s accompanying video that alongside seeing the band perform, shows a small snippet of the struggle that many metalheads suffer everyday (this time with a happy ending). We thoroughly recommend you check these guys out, as if Dying Breed is anything to go by, Stormbringer are ones to watch.
Our last video this week comes from the fantastic and returning Black Moth, who recently announced their new album Anatomical Venus will be releasing early next year. The first single from that album, Moonbow, has a wonderfully psychadelic video to accompany it. Words don’t really do this one justice, just watch it. You shouldn’t be disappointed.
So, there we have it, the line up for another video of the week contest is complete! Voting closes at midday UK time on Monday 13th of November. Five bands, only one can win, so get voting!
