Mnemic To Film New Music Video Tomorrow

Mnemic will film a new music video for their track “I’ve Been You” tomorrow, August 23rd. The group will be working with director Patric Ullaeus (Dimmu Borgir, In Flames) on the clip. Band guitarist Mircea Gabriel Eftemi shared the following on the impending shoot:

“Looks like we are hooking up with our old time friend and film director Patric. As you probably know or don’t know, he did most of our videos, and each and every one has been outstanding to us. This time around we’ll be shooting the video in an old factory (surprise surprise), to create a cold harsh uncompromising type of atmosphere that won’t even melt such a warm melodic song as “I’ve Been You”. We are super excited for the video shoot, and can’t wait to see the final result! Keep an eye out for this space!”

Evergreen Terrace guitarist/founding member Josh James has exited the band. He leaves to focus full-time on Stick To Your Guns—whom he joined up with earlier this year.

Speaking on his departure, James stated:

“In 1999, a few friends and I started Evergreen Terrace. The band has been a huge part of my life, but it’s time for me to move on. Earlier this year, I joined Stick To Your Guns, and I couldn’t be more stoked. It’s been a natural and exciting progression for me. I really believe in the band and the message. Thanks to everyone who has supported me and Evergreen throughout the years. I’m leaving with some great memories. I wish ET the best of luck and hope to see you all at a STYG show.”

Soilwork To Enter The Studio For “The Living Infinite” This Week

Soilwork have blocked out some studio time for their upcoming new album “The Living Infinite“. The band will begin tracking the outing with producer Jens Bogren (Opeth, Amon Amarth) this coming Thursday, August 23rd.

The album will mark the recording debut of David Andersson (also of Night Flight Orchestra) with the group.

Vocalist Bjorn “Speed” Strid had the following to offer on the new sessions:

“It’s been a pretty long time coming, but as we speak I’m sitting here smiling my ass off listening to the demos that will forge into The Living Infinite. I’ve been feeling pretty damn restless from this break to be honest with you, therefore it is with great excitement that I’ve approached this new album.

As soon as we started working on songs in March, all my focus and energy went into building this new beast. We’re finished writing songs and I’m currently laying down demo vocals and I’m having a blast. I feel very inspired.

Around the time that we released The Panic Broadcast, I moved into a house by the ocean in a tiny fisherman’s village. The ocean has given me so much inspiration and raised a lot of existential questions, which will inspire a lot of the lyrics on The Living Infinite, the words Jacques Cousteau used to describe the ocean.

Pretentious?Hell yes, but in the most typical SOILWORK manner, with the right intensity, dynamics and melodies to back it up and make it real. I can’t wait to team up with the rest of the guys and start putting this album on tape, together with the amazing producer Jens Bogren!”

Phil Anselmo Talks Upcoming Split With Warbeast

Phil Anselmo (Down, ex-Pantera) recently shared some more info regarding his upcoming split with Warbeast—who are signed to his own Housecore Records label. According Anselmo, the split will be titled “War Of The Gargantuas“.

Speaking with Loudwire, Anselmo had the following to say of it:

“…I think the first order at hand between Warbeast and myself is that we’re doing a split both of us, two songs and it’s called ‘War of the Gargantuas.’ I giggle because it’s a nod towards the 1960’s film, a Japanese film called ‘War of the Gargantuas.’ It’s, as many things have been throughout, it’s sort of an inside joke between both bands and very much worth it for the old intestinal fuckin’ fortitude.

Either way I picked two of the most straight on songs out of my solo stuff, the full length is pretty chaotic – sometime next year I would say March at the latest we’ll get some solo bullshit going your way.”

Anselmo‘s contributions to the effort will be taken from his long-awaited new solo album “Walk Through Exits Only“. According to him, the material for that outing is currently tracked and just needs to be mixed. Warbeast previously revealed that their songs “It” and “Birth Of A Psycho” will appear on the aforementioned split.
