Ahead of their appearance at Bloodstock Open Air, Irish metallers This Place Hell have unveiled their latest video for new song ‘Filth’!

The band this to say on the track:

“This song is a 4-minute stomper, that deals with self-reflection, it’s about recognising the demons in yourself and knowing that you can change them.”

First premiered at Puregrain Audio, you can view the video here:

This Place Hell are a five piece metal band born out of a love for heavy riffs, and a desire to bring more energy to the Irish music scene. Exploding on to the local metal scene in 2014, the then four piece became notorious for their ferocious live shows “…that can only be described as organized chaos” (Shaun Martin, Overdrive.ie).

Since then the band toured extensively within Ireland, as well as venturing across to the UK, Czech Republic and even as far as Russia, showing why they’re known as “…a band that bring intensity unlike many others” (Steve Dempsey, Planetmosh.com). In between tours they released two EPs in Malice and Contempt, being described as “…heavy music to leave you breathless” (Dennis Jarman, Planetmosh.com) and “…a blistering collection of tracks that shows a band that have just taken the gloves off and are ready to take on the world” (Oran O’Beirne, Overdrive.ie). Playing shows with the likes of Heck, Employed To Serve, Jinjer and Dead Label, the band are eager to play as much as possible in as many places as possible.

The band have come into 2018 with new music recorded with Justin Hill formerly of Sikth, a scheduled return to Agressive Music Fest in Czech Republic, a support slot in their native Ireland with US legends DevilDriver and a spot at 2018’s Bloodstock Open Air Festival’s New Blood Stage having won Ireland’s Metal 2 The Masses competition. With new releases on the horizon, This Place Hell are hungrier than ever to bring their live show to stages across the world.

Following their storming performance at Desertfest, a run of European shows with L7, plus a one-off appearance with stoner rock legends Sleep, Black Moth show no signs of stopping in 2018 as they share a new video for ‘Pig Man’ ahead of their UK tour with Corrosion of Conformity, Orange Goblin and Fireball Ministry.

Directed by Ged Murphy/Rob Hoey and filmed by Louis Caulfield, vocalist Harriet Hyde comments on the meaning behind the track:-

‘In my endless fascination with human sexuality, I came across a brilliant book called Perv by Jesse Bering which celebrates how we’re all sexual deviants in our own unique and colourful ways. In reading it, however, one particular story stood out for its horror and absurdity…

‘Most people know of the atrocities committed towards women in 17th century New England in the Salem Witch Hunts. Deranged rumours circulated that they cut off men’s penises, bewitched them and kept them as pets! To this day, women are ‘slut-shamed’ and outcast for possessing their own innate power and sexuality.

‘A lesser known story is that of the ‘Pig Man’ hunts that obsessed the congregations of New Haven. The poor dears in their infinite repression managed to convince themselves that certain men were secretly in league with the Devil to impregnate barnyard animals. The offspring would be Satan’s children walking the earth, wreaking destruction in their orderly Christian society. It seems the arrival of a deformed pig foetus was enough to incriminate the farmhand for ‘buggery’ and lead to his brutal execution. In a sick, paranoid society, no-one is safe.’

Black Moth Trees

London based synth duo, Sex Cells have shared the video for their debut single ‘Hell Is Where The Heart Is’.

The double A-Side release also features ‘Are You Ready’ and will be available digitally and released on limited edition seven inch vinyl on their own Pretty Ugly Records. Under the guidance of Raf.E and produced by Dave M. Allen (The Cure, Yassassin), the two songs will be accompanied by a series of surrealist artworks made by the band – like a love letter to a nightmare.

Taking their inspiration from early synth pioneers such as Wendy Carlos and Delia Derbyshire, Sex Cells perform a kind of ritual dance – a mixture of Suicide, Psychic TV, and Art House sensibilities. The band are Matt Kilda and Willow Vincent, originally hobbyist promoters running monthly nights of live music and visual projections for experimental noise acts. Sex Cells started off life as a purge of shared anger after the pair were ripped off in a house rental scam. Left completely penniless from the fraud, they sought sanctuary in a Peckham rehearsal room where they decided to document their crisis with a synth and house drum kit.

Soon after, early shows in South London for Trashmouth Records introduced the pair to those at the centre of the same scene that The Fat White Family and Shame have risen through. Finding musical allies in bands like Meatraffle and Madonnatron, Sex Cells have become regular fixtures at nights around London, sharing bills with the likes of The Rhythm Method and HMLTD.

Sex Cells  have been navigating London full circle ever since, setting up camp wherever they can, and rarely staying in one place for longer than a few months. Together with a mutual interest in Dadaist values, Surrealist imagery and an obsession with ‘lost London’ and the esoteric, the band’s slum living conditions and precarious existence has provided a fitting thematic universe which both of these tracks draw from.

A truly exciting live prospect who reject the modern stereotype of electronic music made by laptops, Sex Cells will play following London shows in August:

LIVE DATES:

Uniform hit us with their most powerful, most emotional and bleakest endeavour yet. Vocalist Michael Berdan and instrumentalist Ben Greenberg have joined forces with drummer Greg Fox (Liturgy, Zs) to perfect their vicious post-industrial dystopian cyber-punk and are ready to announce their new studio album The Long Walk incoming via Sacred Bones on 17th August. They’ve also revealed a video for the album’s lead single ‘The Walk’. Created by Danny Perez, the video highlights the cynicism, absurdities and downright bloodlust of our current news cycle. 

Intense doesn’t cut it. Check it here:
