It’s been an insane week for Queens of the Stone Age fans. The band have been releasing pieces of their forthcoming album, …Like Clockwork, nearly daily on the website likeclockwork.tv, accompanied by surreal animations by UK artist Boneface. The end result of the world he’s drawn is a dystopian city of the future (present?) that looks beautiful, but you wouldn’t want to live in, or even visit. While the previous animations have been segments of songs, with the single for “My God is the Sun” already out, this is the full song .
Queens of the Stone Age are pretty much releasing all of their new album, …Like Clockwork, in little pieces, and we’re all the better for it. Thanks to the disturbing, yet visually arresting work of UK artist Boneface, each clip has been accompanied by some truly unique animation of a dystopian world. The latest is for the song “If I Had A Tail,” which features Josh Homme’s former bassist Nick Oliveri and his wife Brody Dalle on it. It’s a midtempo bluesy song that fits in alongside the rest of the music we’ve heard from the album, which comes out on June 4. Over half the song is featured in the clip. If the band comes out with a special edition of the album with all of the video clips that they’ve been releasing online, it pretty much instantly becomes something most fans would want to buy. Check out the clip after the jump. Read more »
Last year, Incite’s sophomore album, All Out War, proved that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree in the Cavalera family. Max’s son Richie ably handles vocal duties and catchy, heavy songs like “Hopeless” and “4Ever Loko” established that the band isn’t just cashing in on the Cavalera name. Yet we’re most taken with album opener “The Aftermath,” which the band have just launched a lyric video for. Metal Insider is proud to give you your first look at it. The band are also touring in support of the album. Check out the tour dates, and get a look at the video after the jump.

Last month, Children Of Bodom premiered a new song called “Transference.” And now the Finnish metal group has released a video for the single. The clip has a lot of weird things in it, including a blonde girl slitting her wrists and vomiting stones, a midget in a king costume, a fat old guy wearing bed sheets, and more. Despite all of this, though, the only thing that kept popping into our minds was “Why the hell is it snowing?” Well, at least the song itself is pretty damn good. Watch the video for yourself above. “Transference” appears on Children Of Bodom’s new album, Halo of Blood, coming out on June 11 via Nuclear Blast Records.
Queens of the Stone Age keep unveiling pieces of their forthcoming album, …Like Clockwork. The latest clip they’ve shown is from the song “Kalopsia.” Roughly two minutes of the song appeared on likeclockwork.tv, the same site where they unveiled part of “I Appear Missing.” According to Wikipedia, Trent Reznor appears on this song, which has a moody, loungelike beginning accompanied by creepy animation. The clip roughly illustrates the definition of the word kalopsia, which is “the delusion of things being more beautiful than they are.”
…Like Clockwork will be released on June 4 on Matador.
Whitechapel’s first full-length album, 2007′s The Somatic Defilement, put them on the map as one of death metal’s bands to watch. The concept album, about Jack the Ripper’s murder spree in East London’s Whitechapel district, led to their signing with Metal Blade the following year. The band completely remixed and remastered the album, giving their debut album a 2013 sheen. The new version of the album came out last month. Metal Blade has released a lyric video for “Devirgination Studies,” which you can view after the jump.
That’s not all, though. We’ve also partnered with Metal Blade to give away an ESP EC-10 guitar signed by the band! To enter, just fill out the form below. We’ll accept entries until May 31st and pick a winner on June 3rd. Sorry, this contest is open to U.S. residents only. By entering, you agree to sign up for the Metal Blade Records news update, which you can opt out of at any time.

There’s something unsettling about watching the video of Tim Lambesis’ arraignment yesterday. Watching the As I Lay Dying frontman’s reaction as the prosecuting attorney calmly details how he wanted his wife dead and meeting with an undercover detective with cash. And while there’s apparently audio of Lambesis, we can only speculate how everything looked when it went down. Actually, now we have a visual component thanks to Taiwanese company Tomo News. Their video reenacments of news events are always insane, and occasionally hysterical. This isn’t laugh out loud funny, but it is really surreal. Think about it – if someone told you last week that you’d be watching an animated Tim Lambesis pumping iron at the gym and plotting to kill his wife, you’d have told them to shut up and keep mourning Jeff Hanneman’s death. Check it out after the jump: Read more »
Deftones have released a new video for “Swerve City,” and it’s an amazingly shot Western. In fact, the majority of the video consists of a girl riding a horse (not a white pony?) through a desert. In fact, towards the end of the video when you see a car, it’s a little bit jarring. Without giving the end of the video away, it’s a little surprising. Check out the video above, and if you’re in Europe, Asia, Australia or at the Orion Fest, see them live this Summer. The mostly international tour dates are after the jump. Read more »
It’s well known that Frankie Palmeri isn’t exactly the most well-liked frontman in metal. So while we wish no one any harm here at Metal Insider, we’re sure there are a few people who would want to see the Emmure frontman electrocuted onstage. Well those people are in luck, because now there’s video of exactly that happening.
Emmure were performing in Moscow, Russia yesterday (May 7) when Palmeri was electrocuted onstage, forcing the band to cut their set short. Fortunately, Palmeri wasn’t seriously hurt and is doing fine, posting the following tweets on his account:
“Sorry I almost literally died on stage tonight #Moscow. Getting zapped by 200 volts feels like shit. Ya almost got me tonight. #STILLALIVE
Haha already reading online that it was ‘karma’ haha. I guess Gino the TM for Chelsea also deserved it too since he got blasted right b4 me.”
While we’re glad to hear he’s ok after the incident, that doesn’t change the fact that video of it is now online. Watch fan filmed footage of Palmeri getting electrocuted for yourself above.
The Dillinger Escape Plan has released a lyric video for “Prancer,” and instead of making a typical boring lyric video, they’ve created something that could almost stand alone as its own video. It’s frenetic, with lots of jump cuts and movement, much like the song itself. Is this the band’s last album? Probably not, but it starts off with the dictionary definition of “swan song,” stating ‘a metaphorical phrase for a final gesture, effort or performance given just before death of retirement.”‘ And while the description is accompanied by a swan, the last third of the video features shots of a decomposing swan. No word on whether or not any swans were injured in the making of the video.
One of us is the Killer is released on May 14.
