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.

I guess it was just about a month ago when we helped to share the news about the upcoming Nightwish live concert video and album entitled “Decades Live In Buenos Aires” and now we have a clip from the concert to share with you for the song “Devil and The Deep Dark Ocean”. The song hails from the bands second album “Oceanborn” which was released in 1999. If you want to learn more about the upcoming release just click HERE for the lowdown and all of the different formats that you can get it in. Now it’s time to sit back and watch the video together.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: Historically speaking I’ve been listening to Nightwish since that second album and I even caught their first-ever NYC show when the band played the famous L’Amour club. My tenure as a fan has been so long that there wasn’t even a PiercingMetal yet for those who needed a reference point. Watching this video made me mentally relive the exciting concert that I witnessed last year at the Playstation Theater. It was the second time that Nightwish had played their and now with this venue closing its doors in December it can never happen again. Seeing them perform for an excited crowd in Buenos Aires is amazing because the overall sound of Nightwish is BIG and quite powerful. Everyone sounds amazing in the clip and it just made me more excited about owning a copy of this release when it hits the streets in December. Having seen some posts about European tours for the band one can only imagine that a US run will be announced in due time and when that happens my friends you should not waste any time in getting a ticket.
I have to admit that the last thing that I am thinking about a few days after Labor Day is Christmastime but when you learn that the legendary Metal God of Judas Priest, Mr. Rob Halford has revealed the first taste of his upcoming Christmas album then you make an exception. It’s been just over ten years since Halford released his first Christmas album with “Winter Songs” (and that was reviewed way back when on THIS POST). The new album is called “Celestial” and this in-studio performance clip is a video for the song “Donner and Blitzen”. Those are two of Santa’s flying reindeer in case you didn’t know that for some reason. Let’s watch.
[MESSAGE FROM THE CLERGY] We wish to inform you Ghost’s song “Faith” has a deliciously disturbing lyric video ready for viewing.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: It’s not common for me to post the lyric videos unless they are something interesting, and well, when it comes to the band Ghost, the word interesting comes part and parcel with anything that they do. The song “Faith” is a solid track and comes from their hit “Prequelle” album which features Cardinal Copia on vocals with the assorted and mysterious cast of players that make up The Nameless Ghouls. The video behind the lyrics is a brain surgery of some kind and as I am more squeamish than I’d care to admit I had to look away a few times. I’ve never been too good at stuff like that. As you members of the Flock are aware, Ghost continues to remain in the news of the day on websites such as this one as they’ve recently announced a European tour (seen HERE) and are set to embark on their North American dates which were outlined HERE. Closing up I wonder what you readers think about the latest lyric video, you can chime in down below as you enjoy it and determine which shows you are planning on attending. I’d suggest that you bring the kids along with you because perhaps in the future they’ll do stuff like these talented high school choir members did in this Video Post. Until next time, which will be soon since its way early in the morning.
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.
