Friday Night Videos: This Week TYR, Fallen Fate , Behemoth & More

So as I have stated before I will compile videos that have sent to me through the week from the labels that I review for, too many to mention here but they know who they are and lets get to the first video shall we?

TYR-The Lay Of Our Love Music Video(click here)


RevolverMag.com writes:

"Týr have unveiled their latest music video, “The Lay of Our Love,” from their most recent album, “Valkyrja.” The song features a vocal duet with Leaves’ Eyes vocalist Liv Kristine, who joins frontman Heri Joensen and the rest of Týr in this new video. The clip was produced by Stanimir Lukic, directed by Ivan Colic.

“We’ve wanted to make a CGI video for a long time, and this is our first one, so we’re obviously excited for the release and reception of the video,” the band comments. “On top of that, the presence of Liv in the video makes it even more special. All in all we’re very pleased with the result.”





Next on the list is Fallen Fate:
Blackened Within’ taken from their second album 'Into the Black' due for release this January 30th.
‘Into the Black’, a ten track epic covering the concept of Vespa, a demon possessed girl, the album shows a dramatic progression musically from the band’s last release ‘The Virus Has Spread’ [2011].

‘The concept of 'Into The Black' plays a big part in how the album sounds and how it is visually portrayed through the artwork... It contributed to the evolving sound of the band as we introduced more keyboards and experimental sounds into the mix, giving it a different dark feel and sound.’ Comments Lee Skinner [vocals, guitar].




Onward we go:
Birth A.D.

BIRTH A.D. have been terrorizing their home state of Texas since 2008, dropped a tactical nuke of an EP (Stillbirth of a Nation) in 2009, and are now ready to leave the entire USA just a smoking crater with this highly anticipated debut. Full of punk attitude, thrash precision, and a whole lot of yelling, I Blame You is the rightful heir to bands like D.R.I. and S.O.D., and gives exactly as much of a damn about what you think as those bands did. BIRTH A.D. is a well-oiled machine full of seasoned pros that have played live and in studio with many well-known bands .With famed thrash producer Alex Perialas behind the boards, they sound as assured as you'd expect given their formidable credentials.     




Now for some heavier and darker Heavy Metal we have 
                                     Behemoth:

BEHEMOTH has posted a brand new track from their forthcoming album, »The Satanist«. The track is entitled ‘Ora Pro Nobis Lucifer’ and is accompanied by a lyric video that includes artwork and text from inside the digipak booklet. Ora pro nobis, which is latin for "pray for us", features lyrics penned by Nergal, along with Krzysztof Azarewicz. Watch and listen here:
And the last video of the week is from:
      Mantar
This two piece monster from northern germany. debut: "death by burning" recorded in early 2013. no fancy art production  just raw display of power. the half german / half turkish band exists for not even a year.
true battle hymns and sinister sounds of darkness. no gimmicks, no image, pure rage. bone crushin' like the berzerker's path. in spite of the fact no bassguitar has been used on the record, MANTAR manages to sound even meaner and heavier than a five piece band due to superior skills in general.
flogging beats and blackened melodies meet feedback orgies and doom mayhem.
