BLACK MAGNET: Revolver Magazine Premieres “Hermetix” Video From Industrial Metal Outfit As Second LP, Body Prophecy, Nears Release Through 20 Buck Spin

With the 2020 release of BLACK MAGNET’s debut album, Hallucination Scene, a new industrial metal power emerged from the unlikely landscape of Oklahoma City. After anxiously waiting out the pandemic, BLACK MAGNET returned to the road in late 2021 and now prepares to drop the second full-length burst of machine-driven mayhem and electronic deviance, Body Prophecy. Here, mastermind James Hammontree welds the frenetic vitality of post-punk and metal energy with driving synthetic club beats, factory force physicality, and alluringly stark melodic pulses. Tracks like “Floating In Nothing” and “Violent Mechanix” feature both intensely catchy hooks and hammering brutal noise. “Sold Me Sad” is a quietly deranged lullaby that takes an atmospheric turn. The throbbing drug-addled lurch of the Manson/Reznor-esque “Incubate” is, at the end of the album, treated to a completely re-imagined and extended club style remix by scene legend Justin K. Broadrick (Godflesh, Zonal, Jesu).

Lupe Fiasco Shares “AUTOBOTO,” the First Video from ‘DRILL MUSIC IN ZION’

Known for his layered metaphors and perceptive point-of-view, Lupe Fiasco often sounds happiest when he lets loose and spits. Giving the visual treatment to one of the verbose tracks from his new album DRILL MUSIC IN ZION, Lupe shares the music video for “AUTOBOTO.” Released as a single last month, “AUTOBOTO” is a mischievous, playful, and deceptively dense single that finds Lupe weaving his precise barbs around Soundtrakk’s arpeggiating guitars. In the hook, Lupe compares himself to a Porsche Carrera, a finely-tuned, performance-focused sports car that tears up the road like Lupe tears up the mic. In the “AUTOBOTO” video, Lupe drives around his hometown of Chicago in that vehicle, before parking the vehicle in view of the city’s iconic skyline. For the song’s final minute, Lupe beams out of frame and cedes the spotlight to Nayirah, who closes the clip with her melodic mastery.


Locking into a head-nodding groove, the track’s dancefloor-ready bass line thumps in tandem with the beat. Devon infuses every verse with empowered confidence and clever witchy puns while she assures, “Such a wonder to be under her spell, what a woman in total control of herself.”

The animated music video transforms Dimitri Vegas, David Guetta, Nicole Scherzinger, and Azteck into comic book superhero versions of themselves in an adventurous fantasy world as they race to catch “the drop” while careening past volcanoes, dinosaurs, sea creatures, and more. The visual begins with Scherzinger summoning an energy orb, which floats and turns green before racing away. At that moment, two portals open and our heroes – cartoon versions of Dimitri Vegas and David Guetta – drop down, each in their own futuristic vehicles. Dimitri, in his “Vegas”-plated jet-propelled hover vehicle, races alongside Guetta, who jets in his motorcycle-styled speeder. As they chase the green orb off a ramp, over a dinosaur-embedded volcano, the drop explodes perfectly, just in time to see Guetta leaving his vehicle to catch the orb while flying through the air. Just as he seems to be getting away, Scherzinger transforms into a mythical creature as she trails Guetta’s vehicle. The orb falls off the cliff and into the ocean, where a giant sea monster is lurking. Guetta emerges from the flames of his burning vehicle, scarred and weapon in hand, ready to take on the transformed dragon in a field of flames when Dimitri swoops in with his flying car and rescues him with the two flying away. To be continued…
