The journey into music videos (and other bits) continues its mission to deliver you something worthy of your time, perhaps introducing you to something new along the way.
This week I continue compiling videos and various musical related tidbits for your viewing pleasure. Some will be brand spanking new, while others will just be things I like. I am not great with timeliness, but I hope you've been enjoying these video collections.
Tom Morello - "One Man Revolution"
I must admit that I have not followed Morello's career all that closely, although I also have to admit to loving his work with Rage Against the Machine and Audioslave. Frankly, I had no idea he had recorded any solo work, although I guess I should have assumed it. So, this live video is the first I have heard of his solo work, let me say that I am impressed. This is a strong song.
DEF-CON-ONE - "Hypocracy"
They are not currently signed, but I suspect that will be rectified in the near future. DEF-CON-ONE is a UK based metal act that features Venom drummer Antony Lant. The song comes from their recently recorded 10-track album that they recorded themselves, surprised at what they got from the digital recorders. The song is brutal and heavy, although not mind blowing. It will definitely get the head moving.
Dir En Grey - "Dozing Green"
Japanese act Dir En Grey has a new album and a couple new videos. "Dozing Green" is the first single from their seventh album Uroboros and it sounds pretty good. This is one of those bands I have been meaning to spend some more time with but have not yet taken the time. Perhaps I will begin with this album, I do like this track.
Sarkom - "Inferior Bleeding"
Let me begin by saying that I hope they are careful not to poke anyone with those armbands of theirs. Next up, it looks like they could use a second guitar player as they have the one guy pulling double duty in the video, must be tough to pull off live. Then there is the fact they have no bass player, they could definitely use one of those. All that said, this doesn't sound like anything particularly special.
