5x New – week 06

The Savonian occult rock behemoth Jess and The Ancient Ones have emerged with a new album! Their brand of heavy guitar and organ-led swagger has progressed from the twin guitar metal blast of yesteryear to Jess and The Ancient Ones’ very own take on soulful late sixties garage psychedelia. Titled Vertigo, the new record is set for release on Svart Records on May 21st this year with a foreboding sound of lysergic doom. Enjoy “Summer Tripping Man” , the first video from the upcoming record!
The English Dark Progressive Rock ensemble BIRDEATSBABY returns with an extraordinary video project. This one stages “Esmerelda”, which in contrast to some of the album’s heavier tracks like “Painkiller”, exposes the softer side of BIRDEATSBABY’s musical repertoire. With themes of loneliness, betrayal and death, the animated video fits seamlessly into the world of the Dark Cabaret musicians and delivers a poignant interpretation of the tale of Esmerelda in an avant-garde comic book style inspired by the classic spaghetti-westerns of Sergio Leone.
The German act BETON BRAUT is back with a new song and video called “Zahnfee” (Tooth fairy). Brace yourselves and enjoy the video!
Chelsea Wolfe has always been a conduit for a powerful energy, and while she has demonstrated a capacity to channel that somber beauty into a variety of forms, her gift as a songwriter is never more apparent than when she strips her songs down to a few key elements. The gripping and reflective new single “Anhedonia” is out now which features guest vocals and guitar from labelmate Emma Ruth Rundle. The song was mixed by Ben Chisholm
The band states: “We guess Darkthrone, Nifelheim, Bathory, Terveet Kädet are the acts that we are influenced by. Some things you can hear in the sound, some not. The band’s sound sort of just comes out as it is, even though we try to write songs with whatever focus there is”.
