Metal band Brotality have teamed up with The Metal Resource to bring you the exclusive premiere of their new music video for ‘Foxhole’. The track is taken of their new D45 which is released yesterday (Oct. 16th) via Rottweiler Records.

Guitarist Bryce Maopolski has the following to say: “We have combined influences old and new with our own style to create one of our hugest, heaviest, and most headbang-inducing songs yet!” he adds “The music video compliments Foxhole by showcasing the fun an energy we bring to every song and live performance!, quick cuts, various angles, and intense shots all complement Foxhole’s high energy, fast-paced, and hard-hitting sound!”

The video can be watched below.

Legendary rocker Alice Cooper is gearing up for the 2020 presidential election in the only way he knows how — by running for president, something he has done satirically every four years since releasing the song ‘Elected’ back in 1972.

The Godfather of Shock Rock released a new “campaign” video for the classic track. The clip takes a lighthearted look at the process and positions Cooper as the best candidate. Running on the Wild Party ticket, Cooper‘s campaign platform speaks volumes: “I can do nothing as well as they can do nothing.”

The new video features call-backs to the original 1972 music video, in which Cooper first announced his “candidacy” and the formation of the Wild Party.

Since all eyes and ears are on this year’s heated election, Cooper‘s video administers just the right dose of levity that we all need. The song remains a tried and true anthem for modern times.

An intriguing concept album built of complementary song pairs working from the outside in, “Strangers” – set to be released on October 30 by M-Theory Audio – is the newest effort from Israeli progressive/symphonic metal band, Scardust. With one pair of songs already unveiled to the general public via the music videos for ‘Tantibus II’ and ‘Addicted’, the band has now revealed the first chapter of another two-part saga with their new music video for the track ‘Stranger’, which can be viewed below. A video for its companion track will be released next week.

Says vocalist Noa Gruman, “When someone close to your heart is leaving you and you’re breaking down and feeling that you’re left to face the world on your own, the shared memories and moments that you had become ‘Stranger.’ Being neglected is a fragile and exposed feeling, so in this one song we chose to lose the choir and strings and strip things down to the core musicians. In the video, they are playing the song, but never together, in an obscure, unrealistic location. They are surrounded by concrete pillars and the scene is continuously spinning, leaving the viewer feeling dizzy and uncomfortable. Lyrics pop out here and there to highlight specific parts, and there are also hints of water by the musicians’ feet and paint cans lying on the ground. One may wonder why, and it will all be revealed in the other side of the story, told from the side of the neglector.”

Alter Bridge guitarist Mark Tremonti has confirmed to Myglobalmind that he has used the downtime during the Covid-19 pandemic to begin work on a new solo album

“My producer lives here in Orlando, Florida, and Myles [KennedyAlter Bridge singer] has been here the last two months recording his solo album,” he said. “He just finished tracking it a day or two ago, so I’m next on deck to go into the studio for mine in November/December. Once that’s done, Myles and I will start to work on writing the next Alter Bridge album while touring for our solo projects. That’s when we start compiling ideas for the next Alter Bridge album.”

Asked how far along he is with the songwriting process for the next Tremonti album, Mark said: “I’m pretty very far along; I would say I’m 14 songs deep. I would get to about 20 songs before deciding which ones will make the final cut. It’s not a question of which songs are good or bad; it’s which work and have a good dynamic range.
