Fleshworld hails from Kraków, Poland that you might already know from our review here. The band was initially founded in 2010 as an electronic/post rock duo, the band gradually grew and developed. For a while they revolved around the post-rock/post-metal genres. Since then, the band has been getting heavier and more aggressive with each iteration, while still retaining a certain introspective mood and melodic approach.
The band is premierin now their new single and video, “Currents And Tides” that you can hear below:
The band comments: “Second single from the album and that last song on it. We wanted to try something new and we think it’s the most fun and rewarding to play live, so it’s fitting that it’s a live video. The idea of being a part of something beyond one’s control appealed to us at the time the song was made. The lack of control and the fear of letting go are the main themes of this song. We consciously and subconsciously put ourselves into situations we can’t get out of. It seems to be inscribed in our instincts to expose ourselves to suffering and to find solace in it. We are merely passengers in our bodies and our minds, with a glimmer of hope to hold on to, and remnants of control to give us a false impression that we’re able to act, instead of just watching the big scenario unfold.”
LIK releases "Stockholm Death Metal" 7" today and releases video for A-side "Revel In Gore"
After a successful run of festivals during the summer, Swedish Death Metallers LIK are returning with fresh meat today as they release a brand new 7″ entitled “Stockholm Death Metal“.
The A-side features the new track ‘Revel In Gore’ which was recorded on January 12th, 2019 in LIK‘s rehearsal space, once again with the “one and only” Lawrence Mackrory (Obey Mastering) behind the wheel. Lawrence is responsible for producing, recording, mixing and mastering the song. The two live tracks on side B (‘Rid You Of Your Flesh‘ and ‘Embrace The End‘) were recorded at “Copperfields” (Stockholm) when LIK premiered songs from the “Carnage” album; both were also mixed and mastered by Lawrence Mackrory.
Check out the video for ‘Revel In Gore’ below:
Comments LIK on the video: “With the video for “Revel In Gore”, we wanted to include material dating back to the second world war. We found very un-flattering depictions of how cold, gruesome and devestating it is. War is what the song is about, and nothing could be more fitting. And we also threw in some playing footage, of us, deep down under Stockholm while rockin’ it out with Mr Matti Kärki himself. It was a good and successful session which included lots of laughter, old friends hanging out and the celebration of old school death metal. The one we love and cherrish. Also a big ups for Thomas Liljekvist of Disrupted, helping us out with great camera work.“
‘Revel In Gore’ features guest vocals by none less than Matti Kärki of DISMEMBER fame! “When the idea arose to have a guest vocalist to a future track, there wasn’t too much of a brainstorming going on. We knew who we wanted to fill that position and we’re damn happy that he agreed to do it. Without any introduction needed, we can happily say that Matti Kärki of the great Dismember gave us his one of a kind voice to our song “Revel in Gore”. Being recorded during one day in a cold January in Stockholm, it’s been lurking off the grid for quite a while now. So we’re all super excited to soon “reveal this gore” to the death metal masses!“
The artwork of the 7″ was done by infamous Mark Riddick and portraits the Stockholm crest, but in a undead version which of course is more proper death metal.

DELAIN - Releases New Single & Music Video “Burning Bridges”
Following up on their critically acclaimed EP, Hunter’s Moon, released via Napalm Records earlier this year, DELAIN have stunned fans around the world once again with their brand new single, “Burning Bridges”. Accompanied by an emotive new video, the song highlights the spectacular vocal talents of Dutch vocalist Charlotte Wessels, and once again, the undeniable atmospheric range of DELAIN’s music solidified by their potent previous releases.
Juxtaposing multiple genres and musical landscapes, “Burning Bridges” not only confirms the fascinating duality of DELAIN’s concept, but also allows Wessels to unleash her hard rock-tinged charisma in melodic chorus – the central point of the diverse song structure. Combined with the music video’s breathtaking aesthetics, “Burning Bridges” is in line to become a signature track amidst DELAIN’s catalog – combining gripping guitar solos, cinematic instrumentals, and outstanding vocal performances.
After creating suspense with the previous release of two video teasers, DELAIN unfolds the entire story in their new music video.
The band states: “We are proud to present “Burning Bridges”, the first track off our sixth full studio album. With its energy and bombast the track marries some of our favorite musical elements, and introduces a real life choir as a new color on our palate. We hope you enjoy the track, along with its video, shot in beautiful Snowdonia.”
