Following on from iDestroy’s win last time out, it’s time for another video of the week contest here at Rock Sins with six more videos battling it out to be the winner.
First up this week are Rock Sins’ old friends Trivium. By their own admission with new album The Sin And The Sentence, Beyond Oblivion wasn’t originally intended as a single, but their fans enjoyed it so much it was pushed to the top of the pile when it came to options for their next single.
With their new album Sonder a month way, British prog-metal maestros TesseracT have dropped a video for their new single King, and what a single it is too. Singer Dan Tompkins has possibly never sounded better (and he always generally sounds great). The video is quite in-depth, with a lot happening, so we would advise you to just watch and soak it all up.
Sticking with more fantastic British talent, Manchester horror metal favourites The Dead XIII have made some serious waves with their new album Dark Days. Here we find the video for the album’s title track, with the band in suitably dark form, both in the video and the synth heavy, riff filled song. Grab your cloaks and bang your head.
Heading back over to the US for our next video, US alt-metal veterans Sevendust are back with the first single from their upcoming album All I See Is War. Dirty is a performance video with a difference, as it has a touch of a matrix-esque feel to it. Does Dirty hold up to the band’s length back catalogue? That’s for you guys, the readers, to decide.
Returning to home grown talent, East Anglian pop punkers Crossing The Limits are gearing up to release their new EP Perseverance in a couple of weeks. Ahead of that release, they’ve unveiled Reverse, described by their frontwoman Rachael Holland as “the best song we’ve ever written”. We don’t know them well enough to back up that statement, but it’s definitely a good song, and with an enjoyable video to match.
Last up this week is a stunning dose of post-rock brilliance from another new band to our ears, Coldbones. Their single Lost evokes memories of the likes of Red Sparowes, Pelican and If The Trees Could Talk at their best, and is a must hear for any fans of great ambient / instrumental work. The video fits very well too.
This video of the week contest will close at 12 midday UK time on the 28th of March. As always, there can be only one winner, so please get voting!Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.
