“Monnalisa” is featured on the band’s critically praised 2019 album, Veleno, that’s available now from Nuclear Blast. The video was produced by Void n’ Disorder, directed by Giovanni Bucci (KORN) and shot by Francesco Pennica.
Full credits can be found in the video’s description on YouTube: youtube.com/watch?v=NYEhQDsOqiU
Francesco Paoli Official ๐—ฐ๐—ผ๐—บ๐—บ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐˜๐˜€:
"Monnalisa" is truly experimental but, at the same time, one of the best songs we've ever written. It stood up amongst the other "Veleno" tracks right from its release, becoming an instant classic for our fans. I believe what makes this one so special for everyone is that the idea of "poisoning", which is at the very center of our album "Veleno", is connected to love. Even the most noble of feelings can become toxic if we suddenly lose our identity, letting our mind and soul become enslaved to someone else. In the end, we can truly love someone only if we find a way to love ourselves first. This is one of the most meaningful messages hidden inside our album. That's why we felt the need to emphasize it even more through this video.
When I came up with the concept behind the video, we all agreed that only someone like Giovanni Bucci (Korn, Oddko), who directed our previous video "Sugar", could have handled it the way we desired. The final result is a cinematic video that looks as good as a high-end fashion film, with incredible production values and unconventional imagery, mostly inspired by the historical heritage of Italian fashion and architecture, while still maintaining some horror aspects.
Me and Giovanni know each other since a very long time and I collaborate with his band ODDKO. I'm a huge fan of all his work as a full rounded artist. Him and all the creative minds of the Void ‘N Disorder team, like the extraordinarily talented Art Director Paola Rocchetti, and top-level colorist Gabe Sanchez (Post Malone, Usher, Camila Cabello) transformed a bunch of cool ideas into a mind-blowing piece of art.
๐—š๐—ถ๐—ผ๐˜ƒ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ป๐—ถ ๐—•๐˜‚๐—ฐ๐—ฐ๐—ถ ๐˜€๐—ฎ๐˜†๐˜€:
My goal with this music video was to prove that you can make something elegant and classy and still be metal as fuck. I wanted to get away from the gritty stereotypes of metal videos and since we are all Italians, I thought that it would be interesting to juxtapose Death Metal imagery with elements from classical Italian culture, with its sophistication, elegance, and style. Moreover, it's always a pleasure to work with these guys and Francesco, who plays the drums on Oddko’s upcoming album and is also featured in the next, soon to be released, music videos.

IGORRR: POST NEW TRACK "PARPAING"

French electronic extreme metal warrior IGORRR have posted "PARPAING", a track from the projects anticipated new release "SPIRITUALITY AND DISTORTION", due to be unleashed 3/27/2020 via METAL BLADE RECORDS.











FROM IGORRR:

 Igorrr's new album #SpiritualityandDistortion is set for release on March 27th. Another track has been released today - this time for "Parpaing" featuring Cannibal Corpse's George "Corpsegrinder" Fisher! Watch the video below!

Order at: http://www.metalblade.com/igorrr Igorrr "Parpaing" from the "Spirituality and Distortion" album. Gautier Serre comments: "We are so honored to welcome the final boss of death metal: George Fisher, to sing on one of the most brutal Igorrr tracks we have ever made. "I’ve been a huge fan of George since the legendary albums "Gallery of Suicide" and "Bloodthirst" from Cannibal Corpse which had a pretty serious influence on my music. "His participation makes a complete sense to me and to this track: who’s got a better voice than George Fisher’s voice and could fit better on chiptune 8 bit music? Heaviness versus its opposite, I found on this track the perfect match, the perfect balance." With 2017's Savage Sinusoid, Igorrr more than proved to be a truly unique musical force - and 2020's Spirituality And Distortion cements that well-earned reputation. Slamming together disparate musical styles ranging from death and black metal to breakcore, Balkan, baroque and classical music in a manner that is as unconventional and unpredictable as it is thrilling, Igorrr are unlike any other act, and Spirituality And Distortion displays just as broad a range of emotions as sounds. "Getting stuck in only one emotion is very boring to me; life is a wide range of emotions - sometimes you're happy, sometimes you're sad, angry, pissed off, nostalgic or blown away," states mastermind Gautier Serre. "Life is not only one color. These 14 tracks are a journey through different states of mind I've been through."

THRASH BLAST GRIND TOUR is back to appease the neverending bloodthirsty hunger of metalheads all over Australia and New Zealand this coming May!
This year sees KING PARROT celebrating their 10th anniversary as a band and what better way to do it than headlining the ever-evolving Thrash Blast Grind tour alongside Exhumed, KING and Theories. Like a pitchfork to the skull King Parrot will tear through your eyes, ears and brain with their well renowned reckless and savage live shows.
It's been a long time coming, but EXHUMED are finally back with their ghastly and gore drenched death metal formula. With their new album ‘Horror’, Exhumed, through their sonic meat grinder continue to churn out the repulsive and splattered chunks of aural carnage they are known for.
Melbourne’s melancholic blackened metal force, KING, bring the spirit of old while carving a new path. Epic while remaining raw, majestic while retaining a primitive atmosphere. Released late last year, the new album COLDEST OF COLD forges black metal of the most monumental scale.
Chopping out their own grisly niche, THEORIES bring an intense and inscrutable sound to the Thrash Blast Grind table. Arising from the USA, this three headed chaos outfit will outstrip the under prepared right from the get go.

Dear Metallica Family,
It pains me to write this, but I have to let all of you know that I cannot make it to Sonic Temple in Columbus and Louder Than Life in Louisville this year. As part of my continuing effort to get and stay healthy, I have critical recovery events on those weekends that cannot be moved. I apologize to all of our fans who have bought tickets for these festivals. We are working with the festival promoters to provide for refunds or exchanges.
My intent with this statement is saying “I apologize” to each one of you. The reality is that I have not prioritized my health in the past year of touring and I now know that my mental health comes first. That might sound like a no-brainer for most of you but I didn’t want to let the Metallica team/family down and, I alone completely compromised myself.
Looking on the brighter side, my therapy is going well. It was absolutely necessary for me to look after my mental, physical, and spiritual health.
I want to stress that the band will play all other announced 2020 shows.
I am looking forward to getting back to playing and seeing all our great South American fans in April. And, of course, playing the Epicenter in Charlotte, Welcome To Rockville, in Daytona and Aftershock Festival in Sacramento. We will still play two unique sets at each of these festivals.
Beyond 2020, I am optimistic about the blessings I have been given and what the future brings. I appreciate all the great prayers and support from everyone since I went into rehab last September. Like the moth into the flame, being human in this career has its huge challenges and can be difficult. Your understanding helps the healing.
- James
