Okay, horrible facial disfigurement aside, someone REALLY needs to call the doctor! When your nether bits are engulfed in flames and can double as a flamethrower, my recommendation is a hefty dose of penicillin, STAT! But no, I guess that’s asking a bit too much.
In Dethklok‘s video for “I Ejaculate Fire”, a pharaoh receives a delightful “offering” from a woman who just so happens to be a demon/succubus/Smokey The Bear’s worst nightmare. From that point on, the pharaoh roams the lands, “showering” people with his flames of lust. It all comes to a header when he runs into said STD-ridden woman and a good ole’ fashioned standoff ensues. Who is the winner? Check below for the answer! But be warned! This video, even though it’s animated, is pretty NSFW. So tread carefully!

All That Remains have released a video for ‘The Last Time‘, which comes off their latest album, ‘For We Are Many‘. The video was shot and directed by Nathan Cox (Marilyn Manson, Linkin Park, Disturbed). Singer Phil Labonte had this to say: ”I’ve seen some footage and without a doubt this thing looks GREAT! It’s got…some killer acting, and our dumb asses jumping around like mad.”
It seems lately that the big craze now is 7 or 8 string guitars: The lower the tuning, the more brutal the music. At least, that’s what bands think. More often than not, poor tones and generic songwriting plague what could otherwise be an interesting use of extended range instruments. After The Burial (interview here) tout their dual wielding 8 string guitarists as a huge part of their appeal. So does it help them or hinder them on their latest endeavor, ‘In Dreams’? Check out after the jump.
Devildriver will be releasing their fifth studio album, entitled ‘Beast’, on Feb. 22nd, 2011, courtesy of Roadrunner Records.

Some song titles are as follows: “Dead to Rights”, “Hardened”, “Bring The Fight (To the Floor)”, “Shitlist”, “Talons Out (Teeth Sharpened)”, “Blur”, “You Make Me Sick (Sacred Secrets)”, “The Blame Game”, “Coldblooded”, “Crowns of Creation” and “Lend Myself to the Night.”

All That Remains has just premiered the video for their massive new single “Hold On” exclusively on MySpace Music. The clip, helmed by Ramon Boutviseth (Trivium, Dream Theatre), features a narrative involving a variety of characters dealing with internal struggles and their inability to change their fate as their world crumbles down around them, both figuratively and literally. The force behind the destruction is the manifestation of their dark emotions, which All That Remains embodies as they unleash an epic performance in a post-apocalyptic urban wasteland.
“Hold On” is the first single for ATR’s new album For We Are Many, one of the most highly anticipated metal albums of 2010, coming out through Prosthetic Records / Razor & Tie on October 12th. The album hits the same day the band heads out on a month-long U.S. headlining tour with support from Asking Alexandria, Unearth, Born Of Osiris, & And She Whispered. Decibel Magazine called the album, “Proof that neck-snapping tempos, thoughtful soloing and a catchy chorus or three can co-exist,” while Outburn Magazine remarked, “If there was ever any question as to whether All That Remains deserved to be considered among the melodic metalcore elite, For We Are Many will dispel any lingering doubts once and for all.”
The album can preordered now via Prosthetic Records
. An exclusive version of it is available for pre-order on iTunes
which includes a bonus track available, and an instant download of “Hold On”.

AOL Radio today features “The Pieces Fall,” the first single from Boston-based rock duo Tangents as part of their free weekly “DownloadTuesday” series. The song comes from the band’s forthcoming debut album, One Little Light Year, set for nationwide release on October 26.
Tangents is not what most will expect musically from drummer Derek Kerswill (Unearth/Seemless) and Dave Witham (Of the Hour/Flat-12). Kerswill’s musical diversity and rhythmic approach provides a solid foundation for the album, propelling the tracks forward with great intensity. Add to it the lush and organic sound of vocalist/guitarist Dave Witham and Tangents soars in the vein of Jeff Buckley, As Tall As Lions, even Radiohead. Witham’s magnificent voice rises over a spiraling sonic backdrop with dazzling control and splendor. The album’s ambitious songwriting creates the catchiest music either musician has released to date.
