Betrayed Release A New Impressive Video For “Time Is The Best Murderer”
As recently announced, italian thrash/death metal act Betrayed has revealed a new video for the track “Time Is The Best Murderer”, taken from their last concept album “Kasna”. About the video the band says: “The video of the song “Time Is the Best Murderer” wants to represent the common desire of many people: to be able to control the passing of time at will in order to satisfy their needs, goals and necessities. The young protagonist of the story will make the discovery of a powerful object capable of changing the passing of time. At first the artifact will be used casually but, once knowledge about its functioning is acquired, its intervention will be forced to satisfy one’s desires, not without paying a high price. The title of the song in fact wants to represent the strength, the unpredictability, the uncontrollability and the brutality of the passing of time and the irreversible consequences in trying to control it”.

PHOXJAW Release New Single “Sungazer”
“The sun is quite literally gonna burn us all one day, you can take that in two directions, a super nihilistic view on things served with a smile, or as an opportunity to hold the things you love close and cherish them. With very pagan-esque themes, the bouncing and upbeat track takes bi-polar twists and turns into something darker and heavier, whilst still preserving the same chaotic Phoxjaw energy presented on previous releases. We hope this track digs deep into your brain and burns out your eyes.”

Untrapped: The Story of Lil Baby chronicles the life of the Grammy®-winning rapper, known to friends and family as Dominique Armani Jones, and his meteoric rise to the top of the hip hop world.While still a teenager he became one of the most notorious figures in the streets of West Atlanta before he was arrested and sent to prison. After his release in 2016, he faced a hard choice: Return to the fast money of the streets or take a chance that his charisma and untested talent could bring him success as a rapper. In 2020, his second album, My Turn, was the year’s top seller across all music genres. Today Lil Baby is a devoted father to his two young boys and a powerful voice in the fight for racial justice and police reform.
