The folks in the band Hellyeah have unveiled their brand new video for their song “333” and the cooking track had this clip filmed in Duffs Bar which is located in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Let’s check it out and offer up some opinion about the clip afterwards.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: Speaking of the clip primarily I had to say that I liked this one a lot since it was done in a popular local establishment that is known for catering to the Metal Legions. The clip flips back and forth to shots of Chad walking the mean streets of Brooklyn to clips inside the popular bar where the fans in attendance surround the players (Kyle, Tom and Christian) and look to be having an excellent time. They turned this around quick as it wasn’t too long ago I saw a call to arms across the Metalheads of NYC to come to the famous bar for a video filming. The track is rather good and at times cooks at a great velocity. The drumming on the track and of course the album is the last recorded work by the late great Vinnie Paul who we lost back in 2018. As the song plays we see representations of Paul around the bar and the songs video closes with a respectful memorial to him. He will be missed for sure and was a larger than life personality for the Metal scene. The song itself moves along rather quickly and while it is named “333” it also runs for three minutes and thirty three seconds. Coincidence? I think not. I’ll aim for discussing the musicality of the track soon so stay tuned for that. Let’s all try to rally behind the track in honor of Vinnie Paul.
As you read this quick video share, I am actually wandering the aisles of the Penn Plaza Pavilion for the annual Big Apple Comic Con. It’s a fun event and let’s be keep the cosplayers happy with numerous Instagram features on our PiercingMetalNYC account (please follow us if you aren’t already). This past Wednesday the guys at my local comic book shop were showing each other videos and one was discussing The Cybertronic Spree and as a longtime fan of The Transformers franchise, I just had to share this relatively new clip with you all. Take a look down below and then learn some more about the band.
About The Band: The Cybertronic Spree is a band of Transformers who perform classic cartoon, videogame, and anime theme songs at full volume. Their metal anthems, based around the soundtrack from the 1986 animated film, The Transformers: The Movie, have since transformed into a one-of-a-kind live show that has audiences singing along.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: Over the course of my fifteen plus years of music journalism, I’ve witnessed bands dressed as Horror Movie monsters (Lordi), Ronald McDonald Land Characters from Hell (Mac Sabbath) and even seen a whole lot more that I will speak of at another time. Simply put this is right up my alley since its so absurd but yet awesome and interesting at the same time. There isn’t much to say about the video itself since its a performance clip but this looks like the kind of band that needs to come to NYC and play events like the NY Comic Con or Anime NYC. Since I love a good visual being a KISS fan for several decades, I love the look of the Cybertronic Spree and hope that they will choose to adventure to new worlds like our own. What did you think of this one? Chime in down below lest you fail Megatron yet again…..
It was exactly five months to the day when Ghost unveiled their “Instagram Story Video” for their at the time new single “Dance Macabre” and I shared that with the readership on THIS LINK. It was fun to see the band using the uber popular social networking site to their advantage and rather amusing to see all the different reactions of assorted music personality in regards to the track. Now its time for a brand new video for said song and one that is the kind many had expected in the first place. Let’s take a look.
In the beginning of October, the mighty Behemoth will release their next album which is entitled “I Loved You At Your Darkest”. The opus will come care of their label of record for the last few years in Metal Blade Records and now that they have completed their support of “The Final Tour” by Slayer it’s time to get back to work on their own agenda. The first single for the album is “God=Dog” and the video for this profane little ditty just manifested across the darker channels of the YouTube. Let’s watch and I suggest that you leave the lights on and have some rosary beads nearby. Oh yeah, and chase the kids or younger friends out of the room since there are some violent and pseudo sexual images coming at you in this one. Definitely NSFW.
Whew. That was something else wasn’t it? Truth be told this didn’t surprise me since its Behemoth and after all, they have worn their blasphemous teachings on their sleeves for many, many years. In this one we find a few different variations on the Crucifixion and while singer Nergal is at one point one of the men hanging, we also find him playing the part of a vengeful king and then some angry demonic force of horror. Intense for sure and like I’ve mentioned just before the clip – not for all audiences. The track itself I will go into for a Single Review in the coming days. The video comes on the tail of the bands announcing their North American tour which we celebrated here on the website on a post that you can find HERE in case you missed it. Having just seen them during one of the Slayer appearances, I can only say how excited I am for a headlining tour as they truly command the stage. If you haven’t seen them yet, let this be your time.
Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock for the last couple of years, you probably already know that Ghost is one of the breakthrough artists on the Hard Rock scene and despite their garish looks, their melodies are quite accessible and not as over the top heavy as some might assume. Also hot at the moment is the Instagram social network and to help celebrate the bands new album and songs, they have taken to the medium to deliver what is called an “Instagram Story Video”. Check it out below and I will give my overview afterwards.
