Nuclear Blast Presents: Nightwish “Harvest” Official Lyric Video

nightwish logo

When we last discussed the Finnish sensation known as Nighwish, it was to reveal their very brief US tour dates (seen HERE) which was done not long after our overview of their debut single and video “Noise” (seen HERE) from their upcoming album “Human Nature”. The song is called “Harvest” and is a lyric video as opposed to a regular one but let’s have a look at it down below.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Much like my posts about “teaser trailers”, I don’t really feel there is much to say about lyric videos. I will save my song thoughts for a proper single review which I will attend to shortly for good measure. I did find the presented scenes behind the song to be very nice though and think that most of you will enjoy them. Stay tuned for the song narrative, see you then.

Just a short time ago, the world got the first peek at this new music with an official video for the track “Noise”. Let’s take a look and then I will return with some thoughts on it all.

The Prince Of Darkness of Metal, Ozzy Osbourne has been receiving great praise for his latest single “Under The Graveyard” and now this song has a video to enjoy. Let’s check it out down below and then learn a little more before I cull my editorial thoughts together.

About The Video: For his new video for the #1 rock track “Under The Graveyard,” OZZY OSBOURNE reteamed with acclaimed film director, screenwriter and music video director Jonas Akerlund (who worked with OSBOURNE on videos for “Let Me Hear You Scream” and “Gets Me Through”). The semi-autobiographical video was recently filmed in Los Angeles and features actors Jack Kilmer (as OZZY OSBOURNE) and Jessica Barden (as Sharon Osbourne). Set in the late 70s in the early part of OZZY’s solo career, the clip shows the darkness of life and how a helping hand and love can change everything.

Rating: 4/5

The Alt-Rock band The Unlikely Candidates have offered up their take on the 1977 holiday classic “Father Christmas” which was an original composition by the legendary British Rock band The Kinks. This was my first time hearing the band do anything and I was glad to find a holiday track from them since around this time of the year I love to offer up spirited narratives that fit best with the season. The original Kinks version surely rocks but how did The Unlikely Candidates do with it? Let’s discuss.

It was only a few short hours ago that the legendary King Diamond took over NYC with a show at Brooklyn’s beautiful King’s Theatre. While we were not in attendance to be able to share much about the show with you, I did learn that a brand-new song called “Masquerade Of Madness” was performed mid-way through the show. Now that the clock has struck midnight, the rest of the world can absorb it via whatever their preferred streaming service might be. The song is available on all of them and comes care of Metal Blade Records. Let’s discuss in brief.
