Sanctuary Unveils ‘Dream Of The Incubus’ Lyric Video

Sanctuary is giving fans another taste of its next album.

The band has unveiled the lyric video for its song ‘Dream of the Incubus.’  The song comes from the band’s upcoming compilation record Inception, which will be released in stores and online on Friday, February 4 via Century Media Records.  The video presents Sanctuary performing its song in a live performance from 1986 complete with lyrics.

The video’s recording quality will take audiences who grew up in the 80s back in time all while the song entertains them at the same time.  Audiences can see the video online now here.

Guitarist Lenny Rutledge said he was happy to see ‘Dream of the Incubus’ finally get a proper release because the song is a rare work from the band.  He added the performance used for the lyric video was just as rare because of how few times the band ever performed the song live.

‘Dream Of The Incubus’ was one of those forgotten SANCTUARY songs.  It’s awesome to see it finally get released,” Rutledge said.  “I believe we only played ‘Incubus’ live one time. This video footage was from our first Seattle show in the late 80s at a venue called The OZ. The introduction at the beginning is Jeff Gilbert from the radio show “Brain Pain”. Jeff was a huge help to SANCTUARY and many other Seattle bands from that time frame.”

Queensryche Unveils ‘Bulletproof’ Video

Queensryche has unveiled the video for its latest single.

The band unveiled the video for ‘Bulletproof’ this week.  The video is streaming online now here.  It mixes together footage from the veteran rock act’s recently completed year-long Condition Human world tour.

Front man Todd LaTorre explained the band opted to use its live footage for the video in order to illustrate the song’s lyrical theme.

“‘Bulletproof’ is a journey through a relationship gone bad and however painful the relationship is you still find a way to persevere,” LaTorre said. “We elected to present the song in a live setting as a sharp contrast to the videos we’ve done for the Condition Human album to help bring this chapter to a close and start the next journey.”

The band debuted the video for its latest single ‘Electrical’ this week online.  The song is taken from the band’s upcoming album About Time, which will be released Feb. 3, 2017.

The video features footage of circuit boards and electronics coupled with footage of the band members performing their respective parts.  The video’s overall vintage look makes it look genuinely like something taken right from the 1960s, and the song’s arrangement adds even more to that feeling, too.  Audiences can see the video for ‘Electrical’ online now here.

Horisont Signs With Century Media

Courtesy: Century Media

Century Media Records is known as one of the most respected labels in the rock community today.  It is the home to bands such as: Queensryche, Sick of It All, Voivod, and a number of other established and rising rock acts.  Now another well-established act has been added to the label’s already stacked stable of acts in the form of Horisont.

The Swedish stoner rock act released its fourth full-length studio recording Odyssey in 2015.  Now a decade after the band first formed it has taken another big step in its career with this news.  Thanks to the new worldwide deal the band is hoping to have its fifth album out in 2017 via Century Media Records.  The album was discussed along with the new deal in a statement released by the band this week.  “We are super excited to be signing with the mighty and highly acclaimed Century Media and look very much forward to be working together,” reads the statement in part.  “Right now we are in the most creative era of this bands existence and this will spill right over into the new album we are currently working on. The first taster off the new stuff will hit the streets by the fall and we’re pretty sure it will electrocute your soul. In the meantime – see you on the road!”

Jens Prueter is A&R for Century Media Europe.  He discussed his experiences seeing the band live as one of the main reasons for getting the band signed to Century Media.  “I first saw HORISONT at the Rock Hard Festival in 2013 where they turned the amphitheater into a sea of head banging and beer raising,” he said.  Seeing them again last year, I was impressed how they took their retro influences and progressed into a league of their own. These guys are as tight as their trousers. Looking forward to join their journey! Thanks to all of the guys and the equally amazing Peter from Crusher Records who discovered them first and is still the captain of the ship!”
