So being that I haven’t had cable or basic TV channels for about 17, almost 18 years, I had never heard of MTV’s Made, a show which takes people who have a dream, supplies them with a ” made coach”, and helps them achieve their dream.
In an episode that aired on Monday night, 16-year old Julia aspires to become a metal singer in an effort to attain a sense of self-confidence that has been destroyed by constant bullying, both in school and on the Internet. Her coach was The Agonist‘s vocalist Alissa White-Gluz, and cameos from Iwrestledabearonce and Winds Of Plague can also be seen. You can watch the entire episode below as well as read a response from myself.
To add to all the other awesome exclusives we here at BD Music have gotten this week, we are super pleased to bring you the video for Winds Of Plague‘s “Refined In The Fire“. The video is nothing less than entertaining and features a bunch of gore and zombies. “Being a big fan of both horror films and Halloween we wanted to do a video to tie into both.” Says vocalist Johnny Plague. “We created a video set in a post apocalyptic era… Not too long into the video you realize the cause of the end of society as we know it, ZOMBIES! I play the role of zombie slaying bad mother fucker roaming the dessert looking for salvation. Instead I find a shack infested with all sorts of evil. To capture this horror based music video I recruited my people at Knotts Scary farm. Designer Brooke Walters as well as a legion of monsters. Happy Halloween followers ofPlague, stay bloody!” Read past the break to check the video out. Enjoy! READ MORE

Winds of Plague have released a video for Drop the Match, which comes off their latest album, Against The World.

Check out the video after the jump and lemme know your thoughts!
Winds Of Plague‘s new album, ‘Against The World‘, came out today. To lure those in who haven’t yet picked up your copy, the band released a short teaser video, which you can see below.

As I Lay Dying have released a video for ‘Anodyne Sea’ off their latest album, ‘The Powerless Rise’ exclusively on CraveOnline.com. Apparently, a new form of video technology was created specifically for this video in which a Nikon D7000 HD-SLR camera and a Teradek Cube were attached to a helmet to create the “first-person” illusion. Funny, haven’t I seen that before in Smack My Bitch Up (careful, that link is NSFW)?
As I Lay Dying will be hitting the road in February with Winds of Plague and After The Burial. Check out the tour dates after the jump.

The new album also features guest vocals from Brendan Foley of Betrayal, Tommy Green of Sleeping Giant and Mat Bruso (ex Bury Your Dead). Speaking on the spots vocalist Jonathan Vigil revealed “Well, were good friends with the band Betrayal and we all really like Brendan’s voice and we asked him and he was down to do it. Basically, it’s the same thing with Tommy from Sleeping Giant, except we specifically wanted him for the song “The Conflict” because of what the song is about and how it deals with the two sides of Christianity in the hardcore scene. Lastly, Shane (Frisby) who produced our record is really good friends with Mat Bruso and he called in a favor. Mat poured Coca-Cola all over himself in the vocal booth. It was awesome.” READ MORE
