Árstíðir celebrate release new album with a spectacular video

Yesterday marked the release date for ÁRSTÍÐIR‘s brand new album ‘Nivalis’, and the enigmatic Icelanders celebrated this with the release of a spectacular new video for the track ‘While this Way’. Watch the, in Iceland drone-shot below:

ÁRSTÍÐIR comment: “Being from Iceland we live in close proximity to the elements, and draw inspiration from the dramatic nature that surrounds us. For this video we visited some of our favorite spots around Reykjavík and let the drones loose. Standing on jagged cliffs, in freezing temperatures and strong winds, gazing out at the unforgiving Atlantic ocean, we really get the sense sometimes that we’re standing on the edge of the world.”

Also listen to the brand new album in full below:

ÁRSTÍÐIR comment: “At the same instant that we celebrate our tenth year as a band, we raise our glasses to the release of our 5th studio album ‘Nivalis’. The latin word ‘nivalis’ means ‘Like Snow’, and our album will drop right during our summer solstice, as to underline the meaning of our band’s name Árstíðir. Musically ‘Nivalis’ is a pivot point between our acoustic roots and new musical horizons explored for the first time. With our glasses raised we’d also like to make a toast to Season of Mist for including us in their family and supporting our artistic and musical visions. Drink with us and let ‘Nivalis’ into your summer!”

CREATURES Unleash New Video “Samara”

Spawned in the Toronto murk in 2015, CREATURES is a group effort with a long history that intertwines the lives of numerous local bands to summon a truly devastating soundscape of unbridled chaos. Inspired by bands such as Necrophagist, Despised Icon and Thy Art Is Murder, CREATURES is a 6 piece band playing heavy and catchy deathcore, taking intense sounds and mixing in small elements of extreme and black metal.

Almost immediately after forming, CREATURES released a 4 track self-titled EP. A varied sampling of the musical talents from the band helped them gain the interest of fans in the local scene and they played several shows with great reception. Taking great pride in live performances, Creatures embodies all the aspects of showmanship with high energy and audience involvement.

Three years later, in 2018, they’re set to unleash their second offering the “II” EP unto the world through their own independent label Old Haunt Records on July 20th. The songs reach into a large porcelain cup of topics and instead of just merely presenting their themes to their listeners, CREATURES smashes the cup in their faces, making sure their themes cut deep and stay with the listeners. Whether they are lyrics about the futility of existence with a cartoon metaphor, or the bond of brotherhood within an intense party setting, there is a message for everyone to latch onto. Regardless, the songs are a visceral insight into the band’s life.
