MNRVA Release Video For “Not the One”
Doom metal band MNRVA have released a video for their song “Not the One”. The track is taken from their album Hollow which came out last year via Black Doomba Records. A vinyl version is set to be released on April 7th, 2023 with pre-orders starting on March 17th, 2023.
The band comments: ” ‘Not the One’ is a mid-tempo, sludgy track with a psychedelic intro, catchy vocal hooks, and in-the-pocket grooves. We filmed the video at Filmmaker Chris Bickel’s compound on a sweltering Saturday in June. Columbia, SC’s city motto is “famously hot” and we were all pretty much at our limit, even with constant hydration and industrial fans, which set the perfect scene for a song about burning it all down. The hottest part of the day was actually well after sunset, when the director had us improvise some around-the-bonfire scenes. The fire burned so intensely hot and fast that we had to act quickly. Kevin is a natural at spontaneous invention, and dark mystery.”
Extreme Metal Band Noxium Ferus Unleash New Album “Blasphemicon”
Hailing from the cold mountains of Norway, Noxium Ferus is a diabolical horror act fronted by Espen Dyngen, a misanthropic hermit who has written lyrics for many well-known metal bands. The album is hard-hitting, old-school blackened death metal with a recognizable sound and style. The band’s first offensive audio attack is the release of the single “Dickslapped by the Devil,” featuring guest artist Jontho Panthera, Ragnarok drummer and leader. Noxium Ferus is completely uncompromising in its musical identity and content, presenting its audible horror show with offensive humor and strong anti-religious content.
“What’s It To You” is a direct response to anyone who thinks they get to dictate the way other people live their lives. Its our way of standing up to them. Whether it’s the governemt, the clergy or anyone else who wants to say “my way is the only right way and my morals should decide how you get to live.”
Its a “fuck you” to those bigots who are so scared of things they don’t understand, that they’ll yell and scream and protest peoples right to exist as themselves.
Owls & Eagles unleash “On My Way”, the next track from their upcoming album – Patience Vol. 1
Song 2 In the story of Patience, Searching for her real self and a new home she finds the Demon. This Demon came looking for fear long ago, and now with a new mindset and a new will, all the demon finds is her rage. Knowing what she must do to overcome these fears and negative feelings the fight is on. No more will she be kept down by this Demon, no more will she let her fear win, she defeats this monster and wears its head as a crown knowing she can do this by herself and for herself. Queen of herself!
Asian Canadian Alt-Pop Artist – Vicki Lovelee (New Music Video Release)
“Counting Me” is a revenge pop song about reclaiming your confidence in the face of rejection. When focusing on yourself, you realize you can thrive without them. In the new music video, Vicki Lovelee playfully taunts her ex-lover. Even though they left her, they still see and hear her everywhere and their regret slowly drives them insane. “Think of me all the time, when you close your eyes you’re not counting sheep, you’re counting me”. The song blends dark pop with theatrical elements (think Lady Gaga, Melanie Martinez and Phantom of the Opera).
TYGERS OF PAN TANG: new single and video out now

It sits perfectly alongside the other nine fantastic tracks on the album”.
