Ipecac Records have posted a live video for Mike Patton's latest musical endeavor, MONDO CANE, on their official YouTube channel. The album is set for a May 4 release date, with an official live DVD scheduled for later this year. The video features Patton performing "Il Cielo In Una Stanza", the first single from the album, at a recent concert at The Paradiso in Amsterdam. Thoughts?
In the first installment of our new series, DIY with MI, HULL frontman Nick Palmirotto gives us a look into his band's practice space, where the band also prints all of its merchandise by hand. Nick shows you how to build your own screen printing table, how to actually screen ink onto a shirt and then how to properly clean everything up. Here are all three parts:

There is a new video from the fine lads in INTRONAUT that premiered on the Deciblog earlier today (which we ripped from the confines of Youtube and posted below). First off, whoever director Sera Timms is, this person needs to get more work. Second off, it took me a few minutes to properly pronounce the title of the track, Australopithecus. Third off, what the hell is going on in this video?
Make sure to check out the interview we posted with the entire band from a few months ago, where the band talks about their new album, Prehistoricisms (which I cannot stop listening to), working in fancy LA restaurants, touring, the ganj, playing Japan and a bunch of other awesome topics.
That's right, Poland's sacrilegious black metal quartet has released a video for "Inner Sanctum," a melodic track from their rock-solid latest album, The Apostasy. What's going on in the plot is anybody's guess, but it does have some striking black and white footage (courtesy of director Mateusz "Mania" Winkiel) set to a killer composition, so just sit back and enjoy.
Behemoth are also scheduled to release a new EP, Ezkaton, in the US on November 11, via Metal Blade. Check out the tracklist, which includes covers of The Ramones and Master's Hammer, after the jump: (more…)
Prog-metal colossus Gojira have finally unleashed the video for "Vacuity," the first single for their skull-crushing new album The Way of All Flesh. Filmed by directors Julien Mokrani and Samuel Bodin with a RED video camera (the type used by Peter Jackson in the Lord of the Rings series,) "Vacuity" was described by guitarist/vocalist Joseph Duplantier to UK's Rock Sound magazine as being "about the Buddhist meaning of the word which is emptiness not nothingness, the ultimate presence. It was very hard to picture that concept in a video so we told the story of a girl carrying her own casket as the whole album is about facing your death and your pain."
If you still needed a reason to ignore Bill O’Reilly’s “Boycott France” farce, look no further.
The Way of All Flesh hits US stores October 14. US tour dates with In Flames, All That Remains and 36 Crazyfists after the jump… (more…)
METAL Injection has the exclusive world premiere of the new video from HORSE THE BAND for the track "Murder". The video was directed by Gary Lachance at Mandatory Media who had this to say about the video:
The video was filmed live in Belgrade, Serbia midway through HORSE's Earth Tour which was self-funded, self-booked and traversed 45 countries in 90 days. The show was packed with crazed Serbians power drinkers who, before entering, had chugged innumerable 3-liter bottles of beer and gorged themselves on 5 pound hamburgers. They had come from far and wide. These were rural wildmen.. hill people. The venue was a cramped, smoky dungeon, with an overflowing bathroom, no security, terrible sound and a tiny stage that emptied onto a slimy concrete staircase, which was to serve as a battleground for the hundred or so fanatics in attendance. Things were looking good. And from the first note, it was nonstop anarchy, a heaving tangle of violence and hilarity as brutish men and merciless women performed a dance of death, hurling themselves and their opponents to the floor, crushing each other in 20-something dogpiles, tearing steel fences from the floor, destroying the few functioning light fixtures, removing their clothes, and coming dangerously close to ruining HORSE's equipment and ending the tour. Directed by Gary Lachance of Mandatory Media

You've been waiting for it and here it is. SLIPKNOT are back in full force with their new video for their first single, Psychosocial off their upcoming release All Hope Is Gone. The video is a pure performance piece and a fine one at that. Pretty sweet vid. All Hope Is Gone is in stores August 26th, 2008.
Headbangers Blog has posted the new video from JUDAS PRIEST for the track "War", and much like the band itself, it looks like the video was imported straight from the 80s. What is with these bands trying to make these epic videos but choosing the cheapest CG house around to produce them. Are they just like "Well we know the sterotype is we're cheesy, so fuck it, let's just play that up!". Just my opinion, what do you guys think of the video?
Headbangers Blog has the exclusive premiere of the new video from Detroit's THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER. Directly by Sir. David Brodsky, the video is a throwback to the horror films of old like Creepshow. Good to see a band that put a little more effort than just "Hey, lets get in a warehouse and perform" for this video. It definitely gets across their less-than-serious personalities. Kudos, gentlemen.
MUNICIPAL WASTE get "it." Their new video for the song "Sadistic Magician" is just all kinds of awesome. The band is really really good at putting a new spin on retro vibes. Oh, and have you seen that f'n guitar? MW FTW!!!!1
Above is the premiere of the new video from our electro-core buddies in GENGHIS TRON for the track "Things Don't Look Good." Sure, they could've just done a regular performance video, but how f'n boring would that be? Instead they spice it up with this awesome (relatively) low budget video. Good work, gents. Also, check out the shitton of Genghis live footage we have…
Above is the world premiere of the new video from SHADOWS FALL for the track "Forevermore". The track comes from their Threads of Life release, in stores now.
Above is the freshly baked new video from Kansas' ORIGIN. Fuck yes! The video was directed by David Brodsky of MYGOODEYE and Sir Brodsky was kind enough to invite us to the shoot to get some behind the scenes footage and interview the band. Check that out below:
DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN keep it surreal in this new clip for their latest single "Black Bubblegum", one of the mellower tunes on their latest release Ire Works. The clip was directed by Ilan Sharone for Pneumatic Pictures.
If you haven't checked it out yet, a few months back we posted a fantastic interview with vocalist Greg Pucatio, where he tells some awesome stories regarding the recording process for the new record and tells a rad story about shrooming in the Grand Canyon. Check out all of our DEP videos here.
Awesome! That's the only way I can describe MESHUGGAH's new video for 'Bleed'. Directed by Ian McFarland & Mike Pecci, the video clearly takes inspiration from the album art, which Tomas Haake discussed in a recent interview with Metal Injection to be about the innate evil in man. Long live MESHHUGGAAAHHH!
