Annihilator—One to Kill (official lyric video)

Canada’s Annihilator was among one of the first thrash band I got into back in the 1980s. I loved their first two albums, Alice in Hell (1989) and Never, Neverland (1990).

I’m delighted to see that their 16th album For The Demented (2017) will be released early next month, on Friday 3 November.

I kind of lost touch with Annihilator with 1994’s King of the Kill. This track certainly makes me want to check them out again and dig a little deeper into their now not inconsiderable back catalogue.

Klogr—Sleeping Through The Seasons (video)

Ahead of their forthcoming album Keystone which will be released on 6th October via Zeta Factory / PHD (review to follow shortly), Italian-American alternative rock/metal band Klogr have released a music video for ”Sleeping Through The Seasons’.

The song, as well as the other tracks from Keystone, was recorded at Zeta Factory Studio and mixed at Mainstation Studio in Toronto, Canada, by Grammy winning producer David Bottrill who has previously worked with Dream Theater, Stone Sour, Tool, Rush, and more.

The video was inspired by the novel (and movie) Lord of the Flies by William Golding, which focuses on a group of British boys stranded on an uninhabited island and their disastrous attempt to govern themselves. The storyboard for Klogr’s new music video was created by Andrea Saltini (the author of ‘Keystone’s’ artwork) and Chiara Silvestri (art director). ‘Sleeping Through the Seasons’ video shoot was handled by Roberto Zampa (director of Klogr videos for ‘King of Unknown’, ‘Breaking Down’, ‘Breathing Heart’) and Matteo Pasquali (director of Klogr videos ‘Bleeding’ and ‘Draw Closer’) who took care of the direction and editing.

Klogr guitarist / frontman Rusty says, “When I talked to Andrea Saltini about the concept of the album, he shared with me his interpretation inspired by the novel/movie ‘Lord of the Flies’. I really loved his idea because it seems a wide way to see the album as a whole in one music video . It is always exciting to meet other artists’ (painters, designers, art directors, and writers) point of views so they can give you other interpretations of your work.”

‘Sleeping Through the Seasons’ is taken from Klogr’s forthcoming studio album ,’Keystone’, which will be released on 6th October via Zeta Factory / PHD. It’s the second single to be taken from the new album following lead song ‘Prison Of Light’.

Klogr are special guests to The Rasmus on their ‘Dark Matters’ European tour this November.
