Swedish Heavy Metallers PORTRAIT have just released the 2nd song taken off their new album ‘Crossroads’ due April, 25th via Metal Blade Records. Surf over to our partners Rock Hard Germany to listen to “We Were Not Alone” HERE.

You can still stream the 1st single “In Time” at www.metalblade.com/portrait, where fans can also pre-order copies of ‘Crossroads’ on CD, vinyl and digital downloads.

Comments PORTRAIT: ‘Crossroads’ is a sevenfold blessing and curse upon a dying music scene, an album imbued with something untouchable and yet undeniable. ‘We Were Not Alone’ is a haunting mid-tempo song that should not disappoint any real headbanger!”

The relentless, Swedish heavy metal monster known as PORTRAIT was born in the year 2006 with the intention to exterminate the entire world.

After the release of a demo, two singles and their self-titled full length debut PORTRAIT released their Metal Blade debut ‘Crimen Laesae Majestatis Divinae’ in 2011. After numerous tours and festival apperances the band began to focus on the third album, entitled ‘Crossroads’. The writing and recording process took about a year and Tore Stjerna of Necromorbus Studio handled the production together with the band.

“This is our most important album up to date in so many ways, and we couldn’t be more satisfied with the final outcome. To me personally, PORTRAIT has finally become what I have always wanted the band to be, and we are hungrier than ever. The new album will speak for itself, and the year 2014 will be a year of Truth and of Conquest. Beware!” – Christian Lindell, guitars

‘Crossroads’ tracklisting:
01. Liberation
02. At the Ghost Gate
03. We Were Not Alone
04. In Time
05. Black Easter
06. Ageless Rites
07. Our Roads Must Never Cross

PSYCHOPUNCH release a short film

13. February 2014

Swedish straight forward Rock n Rollers PSYCHOPUNCH are releasing a short film on SPV’s YouTube channel today.
This clip contains 3 songs / videos from their current album "Smakk Valley" and it was directed by Andreas Ekvall.

Psychopunch guitarist and singer JM comments: "When we got the chance to make 3 videos at the same time for our new album "Smakk Valley",
I got the idea that each video should end like an episode so that the next one could take over. Like a story. Then Jocke came up with the brilliant idea that
we should add stuff in between to make it like a real movie/film. So,said and done..ideas were tossed back and forth..what to add and what should be in it.

Intro…outro…text…characters etc etc..

A lot of the inspiration came from the movie "Sin city".

 
http://youtu.be/Z1p8wLI6VBs

It was real easy to work with the director, Andreas Ekvall. He loved the idea we had and came up with most of the ideas to the story. We were lucky to get hold of Andreas.

It was one of Jockes friends who already made a video with Andreas who told us to get in touch him. That was a good move!

So here it is, "Smakk Valley" the movie!"

THE NEW BLACK release video for ‘Any Colour You Like (As Long As It’s Black)’

10. February 2014

Germany’s heavy rockers THE NEW BLACK filmed a third video for a song from their album "III: Cut Loose". The clip to ‘Any Colour You Like (As Long As It’s Black)’ can be viewed here:

 
http://youtu.be/2oMHUNJN8rI

Comments the band: "’The glass half empty, and filled with piss…’ Ah, well. It all looks pretty normal at first. But there is something dark lurking at the edges. Unnoticed, decay sets in, and the blackness might be closer than you think. But then again life goes on. As does the music. And the fart jokes.

‘Any Colour’ is not exactly a song about peace, love and good happiness stuff. But fun to play live. Like fart jokes, pretty much. Enjoy, comment and – this actually important – please spread around."

The clip was once more directed by THE NEW BLACK’s Fludid. No spiders, cockroaches, worms or musicians were harmed during the filming. All pyro scenes, car chases and naked dancers had to be omitted due at the last minute.

THE NEW BLACK will embark on the "Out of the box Tour" with labelmates Dark Age in February. The current schedule reads as follows:
