Black metal masters Skald In Veum and HM are proud to premiere the new lyric video for “Inferno,” the first single from the band’s upcoming EP, 1260 Days. The release drops on Oct. 30 from Rottweiler Records and SkyBurnsBlack Records.

Vocalist Mund spoke with HM about the track:

“Heth read Divina commedia by Dante Allegieri (1265-1321) and got inspirerd by the rich imagery and its description of the human soul in this literary classic for the ages. We turned to Karl Walfridsson in Pantokrator for a hellish visualisation of the music and the lyrics as a whole.”

The new six-track effort from the Scandinavian outfit is available for preorder on iTunes with two immediate grat tracks, one of which is “Inferno.”


Comrades 2020

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.

A Voice of Life

If you really listen to 'Youth of the Nation,' we still have these tragedies going on. There’s a lot of searching still going on out there."

A Disparate Vintage

On Tigerwine's latest, 'Nothing is for You,' vocalist and lyricist Trobee departs from the band's last effort as a concept record to write about an array subjects. Notably, Trobee tackles his evolution from rigid belief system to an acceptance and understanding of other ideas: "Through touring and becoming close with those very people I was taught to be afraid of, I realized how untrue it all is."
