Flip to watch new music videos from A Perfect Circle “The Doomed” + In Flames “It’s No Good”…
Watch new music videos below:
We have to say this is one of the most intense videos, but it’s not surprising that is comes from A Perfect Circle. The group released their first new song in four years with “The Doomed,” as well as confirming that a new album will be arriving in 2018.
Maynard James Keenan is a camelion of sorts since he reinvents himself and his musical environment with each of his projects. He is the frontman for Tool, Puscifier and A Perfect Circle, which we are fans of.
Frontman Maynard James Keenan said:
“Fourteen years have passed since we released eMOTIVe. A new release is long overdue. In light of this current difficult and polarized social, spiritual and political climate, we artist types need to open our big mouths and share the light a little louder.”
Guitarist Billy Howerdel adds:
“Years of life experience has brought our music to this moment. We know where we came from. Deeply connected to the path we’re on.”
We recently saw them at Aftershock in Sacramento, and we have to say A Perfect Circle was superb. It was great to finally see them live.
The band is currently on Tour, and they are a must see band. To see where the band is playing next, head to their website.
In Flames has a new surprise outside of their normal heavy metal escapades with a surprise cover of Depeche Mode’s “It’s No Good” from their EP Down, Wicked & No Good.
The original’s synthy hooks have been replaced by a metallic and driving guitar riff. The ’80s vibe is fully in place in the video, thanks to a car driving in a pitch black, neon accentuated street. Hearing singer Anders Friden take on Dave Gahan’s original vocal work is impressive, replacing Gahan’s originally airy singing with fiery, in your face stylings.
“We’ve been fans of Depeche Mode since we were as young as 10. Getting to do our rendition of ‘It’s No Good’ showed us a different side of the song – it brought new meanings to us. We relate to the lyrics and power of the song so heavily that it almost feels as if we could have written it ourselves. They’re a band that we’ve always looked up to. Growing up, you either listened to Pop, Synths or Rock and even though we are a metal band, Depeche Mode inspired a lot of the electronic elements we use in our music today.”
Also on the EP are covers of Alice In Chains’ “Down in a Hole,” Chris Isaak’s “Wicked Game” and a live cover of Nine Inch Nails’ “Hurt.” Each cover shows In Flames experimenting with new sounds to create something invigorating, giving a lot of life in a nice and tidy EP.
