THE 69 EYES – Two Horns Up [Feat. Dani Filth] (OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO)

Finnish gothic rockers THE 69 EYES have released a music video for the song “Two Horns Up”, featuring an appearance by Dani Filth from CRADLE OF FILTH. The track is taken from THE 69 EYES’ new studio album, “West End”, which was released today (Friday, September 13) via Nuclear Blast. The disc consists of 11 up-tempo rock anthems full of heaviness, black memento mori moments and dark humor and features several other guest vocalists such as Wednesday 13 and BEASTÖ BLANCÖ’s Calico Cooper.

 

“West End” is available as a digipak, including the album and a Blu-ray with a band documentary directed by Ville Lipiäinen.

 

Comments THE 69 EYES vocalist Jyrki 69: “We’ve been friends with Dani Filth for 25 years, and THE 69 EYES did our best-ever and legendary North American tour with them over ten years ago. We were partying with him on my 50th birthday at Hollywood’s Rainbow Bar & Grill last October and came into conclusion that he should sing some guest vocals on our new album. It is mind-blowing to have the world’s most recognizable extreme metal vocalist on the opening track on our album. ‘Two Horns Up’ speaks about today and to everybody!”

 

Regarding the “West End” album title, Jyrki 69 says: “The title ‘West End’ evokes a dark image — when something dies, something new comes up and we all have to change in order to stay alive. I feel like this planet is on some turning point. The end of the western world is near and the question is: What is happening when the west ends? The title has multiple meanings for us… but be assured it has definitely nothing to do with THE PET SHOP BOYS or London.”

 

THE 69 EYES will embark on a 30th-anniversary European tour in November.

LINDEMANN Feat. RAMMSTEIN Singer, PAIN/HYPOCRISY Mainman: Listen to New Single ‘Steh Auf’

LINDEMANN, the project featuring vocalist Till Lindemann of German industrial metallers RAMMSTEIN and Swedish producer and multi-instrumentalist Peter Tägtgren (HYPOCRISY, PAIN), has just released its new single, “Steh Auf”. You can listen to the song above.

 

Tägtgren recently confirmed that he produced and mixed LINDEMANN’s second album. The follow-up to 2015’s “Skills In Pills” is tentatively due before the end of the year.

 

Last year, Lindemann collaborated with Kurdish German rapper Haftbefehl on a single called “Mathematik”. A music video for the song was shot in November at the Berlin nightclub Astra Kulturhaus by director Zoran Bihać. Zoran previously worked with Till on videos for RAMMSTEIN and LINDEMANN.

 

Tägtgren told Kaaos TV about the response to LINDEMANN’s debut album, “Skills In Pills”: “It’s been really good. I mean, some people are, ‘Ah, the lyrics are so immature.’ [But] I think it’s funny lyrics. me and Till are immature people. So, you know, we’re just having fun with… He’s discovering the English words; he’s always been writing in German [with RAMMSTEIN]. And now, his crazy ideas and all the English stuff, it’s like plucking the tree, he always tells me, from fruit, because the German tree is already empty for him, he said. So it’s really refreshing for him to do all these things in English. I mean, so far it really went very well — Number One in a lot of countries, including Finland. So it was surprising. Some [reviews] are more, like, ‘Yeah, immature guys going crazy.’ But, hey, it’s a party album. It’s like, you know, Billy Idol in 2015 on… I don’t know… speed. It’s a party album. We want people to get a good feeling when we do it. It’s great party music, I think. It’s an album that you can get in a mood before you go to a festival, or before you go out to the bar or something, to get a good feeling.”

 

RAMMSTEIN is continuing to tour in support of its seventh, untitled album, which came out in May via UME/Spinefarm in Europe and Caroline Records in the U.S.

KMFDM Shares a Vision of “PARADISE” With Music Video of New Album Title Track

SOURCE: www.http://regenmag.com

 

With the September 27 release date for the band’s new album rapidly approaching, KMFDM invites fans to share in the Ultra Heavy Beat’s own vision of “PARADISE” with a single edit and music video for the album’s title track. Making its premiere on Pure Grain Audio, the video for “PARADISE” presents a bleak observation of Western culture’s obsession with the accumulation of material wealth and the abuse of authority giving rise to tyrannical political structures, ultimately creating a planet that has become “a paradise for assholes”… and KMFDM will not stand for it! The song, and indeed the album as a whole, further presents the Ultra Heavy Beat’s penchant for poignant and powerful political discourse, with the ultimate statement of PARADISE to live with no regret, don’t look back, and find your destiny – in the band’s own words, “Not so much a political statement, but a cultural commentary…”

 
Set to the single edit of the song, the music video for “PARADISE” was directed by Eric A. Zimmerman of Tiger Eyes Media (and formerly of H-Gun Labs in Chicago); his history with KMFDM goes back to the WaxTrax! era as he was responsible for some of the band’s most beloved visual presentations, including “Vogue,” “A Drug Against War,” and “Juke Joint Jezebel,” with the band appearing in performance footage shot mainly by themselves. According to KMFDM, “The idea was to play with very disparate backdrops; some representing the crushing forward momentum of Western wealth, and the other showing the collateral devastation wrought by unchecked greed, individual isolation, and a hapless lack of insight to urgently needed changes regarding the use of global resources, as well as the continuing dehumanization of millions of people on the run from war, hunger, terror and climate change.”

 
Album CoverAs stated, PARADISE will be released on September 27 via Metropolis Records, with pre-orders available on Bandcamp and the Metropolis Records website in CD and limited 2-LP vinyl editions. The album features the core band lineup of Sascha “Käpt’n K” Konietzko, Lucia Cifarelli, and Andy Selway now joined by guitarist Andee Blacksugar, along with guest performances by rapper Andrew “Ocelot” Lindsley, and KMFDM alumni like bassist Doug Wimbish (TACKHEAD, Living Colour), Cheryl Wilson, and <PIG>’s Raymond Watts, appearing for the first time on a KMFDM record since 2003’s WWIII album. The single edit of “PARADISE” is also available to purchase on Bandcamp, officially releasing on Friday, September 13.

 
In response to the plethora of fans anxious to see and hear KMFDM onstage again, no plans for a tour have been announced as of the publishing of this article.
