The Brilliance Drop “Facebook” Video

“the grit and grime of the world, soaks in through the beautifully laid out instruments of ‘Facebook’, with equal part civility and contempt for lying still. In a harrowing life, the song is inspired by the current world in its technology and knowledge. And within that context of tandem ignorance, our brittle emotions suffocate with, pre-determined servitude and loyalty to the shortness of time and space.” (Come Here Floyd)

PREMIERE: The Brilliance Shares ‘Facebook’. “Ambitions for adding to a better and peaceful place.”

Canadian Thrash Quartet HAZZERD Premiere Video For ‘Victim Of A Desperate Mind’

Says drummer Dylan Westendorp, “‘Victim Of A Desperate Mind’ is one of the longer cuts on ‘Delirium,’ and it has some of the album’s darker lyrical content. The song revolves around the topics of addiction, depression and suicide, issues that are unfortunately very real in today’s society. The lyrics are written from the perspective of a person who is trapped in their own mind and stuck with their dark thoughts. Even though these are not the most positive lyrics, we have hope that someone who is going through this type of situation will hear them, relate and realize that they are not alone. Musically, ‘Victim’ is one of the more complex songs we have written to date. Overall, we feel it’s the best song to unveil as the second taste of our upcoming record.”

RUNESCARRED “Mammoth” Official Lyric Video

“’Mammoth’ is a crushing Beast of a song that tears through the walls we as individuals build before ourselves. Where this album, like many others, indulges in angry sentiment, ‘Mammoth’ closes everything out on a high note. The idea that if we shed all the parameters socially forced upon us and stay true to ourselves we can crush anything that obfuscates our true path. ~ Ven
