So, it’s time for another video of the week. Five bands battling it out to take over from winners from last time out Strange Planes. Aside from Crossfaith (always favourites of ours here), it’s a field of newcomers, so this could be a very interesting vote indeed. Onto the bands!
Feeling like a firm rewind to the UK alt-rock sounds of the 90’s mixed with a dash of Muse, London trio Mantra sound like they could have a huge appeal with their new single and video Cola Brat. With their debut album Dreamland coming in February next year, they’re one to keep your eyes and ears on. Also, how many music videos in 2018 are you going to see start with someone playing knock down ginger?
Described somewhat unfairly by one of the comments on their YouTube as “Costco Car Park Metalcore”, Void Of Vision are bringing a serious slab of a metalcore / tech-metal hybrid approach with their new single Kill All My Friends. Whatever labels or sub-genres you want to put on it, it absolutely slams. Check it out now and bang your heads until your necks hurt!
Dropped from their concept album Ex_Machina, Japanese dance metallers Crossfaith have unleashed their incendiary track Destroy featuring none other than Ho99o9. The live video was filmed on their combined tour over the Summer, and the action certainly lives up to the track’s title. We’ve always had a soft spot for Crossfaith here at Rock Sins, and this certainly doesn’t change that.
In all our time here at Rock Sins we’ve seen very few acts like Not Ur Girlfrenz. With a combined age of just 39, these young ladies from Texas have the abilities to put bands with musicians of two or three times their ages to shame. The video for No One Asked You Anyway is stunningly simple yet effective, and they get bonus points for being on board with the British institution of a cup of tea too. They’re in the UK for the next few days supporting Bowling For Soup and Patent Pending, so check them out if you get the chance.
Dream thrash is a sub-genre of metal we’ve not heard of before…until now. That’s thanks to Boston natives Astronoid, who have unveiled their brand new single I Dream In Lines ahead of the February 2019 release of their self-titled album. Musically they sound like the sonic child of TesseracT and Death Angel with Coheed and Cambria-esque vocals, and the video is trippy as hell. Words definitely don’t do it justice, watch and see for yourselves.
So here are your five contenders for this week! Vote closes at 12pm midday UK time on Thursday the 6th of December. All that’s left to say is, get voting!
