Whitechapel have premiered their new music video for the song "Bring Me Home," which appears on their latest release, 'Mark of the Blade.'
Directed by Mathis Arnell, the video brings a visual element to the song, which is about the emotional turmoil and extreme feelings of grief that Phil Bozeman felt while mourning the loss of his father.
"This video means more to me than any video we've ever done," explained Bozeman. "It portrays my struggle through dealing with my dad's death at the age of 10. The shots of me show me at my darkest moments. Suicidal thoughts, suicide note and feeling alone. The atmosphere of the room we shot this is nailed exactly how I was feeling at the time. Dark, depressed and suicidal. The shots of the man and young boy portray my bond I had with my dad and how devastated I was when he left. They are presented to be in a dream like state of me remembering him. The last shot is from my dad and mom's actual gravesite. It's really awesome to have that authenticity to the video. The final scene is showing that I came out of it alive but no matter what, I will push forward and not give up."

Crippled Black Phoenix will release its new album, 'Bronze,' on November 4 via Season of Mist. In anticipation, the band has teamed up with Revolver to premiere the entire new album stream right here, right now! Check it out below and let us know what you think in the comments!
Founder Justin Greaves comments said, "Releasing an album is a weird experience, both excitement and trepidation fill the mind, With 'Bronze' however, it is mostly the former. I am proud of what we have achieved. The album represents a shift towards a stronger future and a big two finger salute to the past couple of years of upheaval. It finds Crippled Black Phoenix sounding at our best in both production values and pure feeling within the music. So, the old cliche of 'what doesn't kill you, only makes you stronger' is definitely applicable in this case. Although 'Bronze' is not the most ambitious album Crippled Black Phoenix have ever made, it in fact surpasses that by being full of emotions, much like the 'No Sadness Or Farewell' or even 'I,Vigilante.' Yet do not think it is backwards looking. That is simply not in our DNA—instead it reflects the vibe and situation, we find ourselves in the present and that in turn shows the future is going to be an interesting journey. This time it is feelings and raw sound that powers the album even in the more 'progressive' sounding songs. It is slightly more heavy, a little darker, but as honest as Crippled Black Phoenix gets. This is what is important to us these days in an age where music is generally full of cheap tricks and trendy marketing."

The Brothers Grimm themselves couldn't write a fairy tale as romantic as this one. When John Awesome and fiancé Nydia Hernandez were looking for a spot in the woods for the perfect engagement photo, they happened upon black metal band Coldvoid who were also shooting in the woods. The couple seized the opportunity to produce the most epic engagement photos ever.
"During the last part of the session, we noticed a few guys with some corpse paint makeup on sitting at a nearby bench blaring out some black metal music," Awesome told ABC News. "We just randomly thought it would be a funny idea if we could get them to be a part of our engagement shoot. So we approached them and asked and they more than happy to accept! Super nice people. I seriously can't make this stuff up."

Rock-rap duo Twiztid will release its new album, 'The Continuous Evilution of Life's ?s,' on January 27 via Majik Ninja Entertainment. In anticipation, the band has teamed up with Revolver to premiere its new Davey Suicide-produced song, "Nothing to You." Check it out below and let us know what you think in the comments!
Jamie Madrox said, "When talks of 'The Continuous Evilution of Life's ?''s first came up, we really wanted to turn up the volume, mix everything up and push our very existence (musical, spiritual and physical) to its full potential to really focus on how we have evolved over the years. I think 'Nothing to You' is a great first example of our new energy that is glowing brightly from within these two question marks."
