Henrik Palm premieres video for new song "Given Demon"

In less than a month Henrik Palm's second album "Poverty Metal" is going to be released and today an official new video has been published to premiere the song "Given Demon"!

Starting off with a bold and catchy attitude, the song is a real banger and culminates with a more chill-out, lingering ending which gives the listener the time to fully absorb the music.

The video has been shot and directed by Chris Shonting, edited by Jared Sherbert, features Rachel Bulgach as "Given Demon" and sees also a cameo by Jocke Proos (of Vampire, and also part of Henrik's live band).
The entirely black and white visuals follow the character of Henke through different scenes and show him constantly in company of this female figure who seems to haunt him restlessly, however, only at the end, in a revealing and somewhat bittersweet scene, we find out what she is really there for. The grey tone that runs consistently from beginning to end, not only fits aesthetically but also subtly gives away the underlying noir mood of the video.

"Poverty Metal" is out on October 16th, 2020 on Svart Records and can be pre-saved on all major digital platforms at orcd.co/henrik-palm-poverty-metal, while physical copies are available for pre-order at the Trust No One Recordings webshop and at the Svart Records Store for the CD and on vinyl editions (red or regular black). Svart Records is also reissuing Henke's debut solo album "Many Days" on clear vinyl and on CD.

Molassess release new single and video: "The Devil Lives"

Earlier today, Molassess have released the official video for their new single "The Devil Lives", taken from their upcoming debut full-lenght "Through The Hollow". The visuals have been made once again by S. de Jager , and perfectly manage to capture the mood of the song, without interfering with excessive distractions and simply providing a meditative frame for the listeners to immerse completely in the music, following along with the progressive immersion of Farida's figure in the video.

As the title suggests, and as Farida recently explained in her interview on The Obelisk, this enchanting piece of psychedelic rock, is a song that Farida's brother, Selim Lemouchi, began writing back in the days for The Devil's Blood, it was never finished and Molassess have decided to complete it and include it in their album. "That was a Selim song, a Devil’s Blood song, that was never finished. And we tried it. We worked on it many times, but it never was good enough, or it was never appropriate. Then it became just another thing that was thrown on the pile of unfinished stuff. But also it was one of my favorites. " said Farida. "We finished it, but it was Selim’s song. We put it at the end of the album I think too, Through the Hollow is more of a statement like, 'And now for something completely different.' It’s very clear that it’s no Devil’s Blood and we’re doing our own shit, but it felt really good to have him there also. We thought it was a perfect ending of this new beginning."

From their official pages, Mlassess have introduced "The Devil Lives" with this comment: "Our brother left us this diamond in the rough years ago. A riddle that kept resonating and found its way up and into our hearts time after time. It is with great pride, eternal love, an everburning fire and gratitude that we finally managed to climb its stairs. This is what we’ve found along the way, beneath its stirring coils. THE DEVIL LIVES".
And he lives indeed. In the guitars, in the vocals, in the overall spellbinding atmosphere of the song. It's a charisma which permeates it deeply and can't go unnoticed.

Molassess "Through The Hollow" is out on October 16th, 2020 on Season of Mist and pre-orders can be placed for different editions of the album, as well as for bundles with new merchandise, on Season of Mist's webstore, while on Ván Records' webstore is possible to pre-order an exclusive version on purple and red mixed double vinyl, limited to 200 copies.
