This weekend we shouldn’t get too obsessed with evil dreams, those type of nightmares tend to make one sleepwalk. However, it’s been a tiring week. We watched At the Drive-In’s new video, had a few laughs at Steel Panther’s show, and caught up on a few noteworthy re-releases that dropped today. With that said, here are this week’s best music videos.
5) Mammoth Mammoth, “Sleepwalker”
Australian rockers Mammoth Mammoth unleashed a video for the song “Sleepwalker” taken from the forthcoming album Mount The Mountain out April 28 via Napalm Records.
4) Dream Evil, “Dream Evil”
The Swedish metal outfit Dream Evil premiered the new tune “Dream Evil” taken from their latest studio effort Six out May 26 via Century Media Records.
The band expressed the following:
“Many bands have a song that features the band’s name… but it’s actually hard to find a song you feel so directly confident with that it can ‘wear’ the band’s name. In our opinion, the song ‘Dream Evil’ has this quality, so that’s also why it was the obvious choice for our first video of Six. Enjoy!”
3) The Obsessed, “Sacred”
Today, The Obsessed released their first album in over twenty years entitled Sacred via Relapse Records. To celebrate the return of these Maryland doom icons, the band unveiled a new video for the title track.
2) The Charm The Fury, “Blood And Salt”
The Charm The Fury premiered the new video for “Blood And Salt” taken from their new album The Sick, Dumb & Happy, which released last month via Nuclear Blast/ Arising Empire.
1) God Dethroned “On the Wrong Side of the Wire”
It’s been seven years since God Dethroned released 2010’s Under the Sign of the Iron Cross. During this lengthy gap, the group split up in 2012 and regrouped in 2014. This week they premiered the new song “On the Wrong Side of the Wire” taken from their upcoming album The World Ablaze out May 5.
Bonus: Anathema – “Springfield”
No one can predict what Anathema will release since their genre evolved over the years ranging from doom to progressive. The group’s overall eleventh studio album The Optimist comes out on June 9 via Kscope, and this one is promised to be their darkest and challenging album yet. Late last week, they unleashed the new song “Springfield” and we figured to give this compelling song a mention.
