dave.pngThe Foo Fighters have been a band that has always found a way to entertain us with their music and their music videos. The band has had some real memorable videos like Everlong, Learn To Fly, and even Big Me which started it all. Now the band has dropped a surprise track and video for the song Run which is their first new song since the Saint Cecilia EP. The music video was directed by Dave Grohl and features the band as old people in a nursing home who are battling against an evil nurse. The song starts off with a great melody before they turn up the volume and rage out as the mood of the track matches the actions in the video featuring a stage diving old timer. I haven’t seen any information regarding whether their is a full album or anymore tracks are coming, but we’ll have to stay tuned for more info as it comes. For now, check out the video below and enjoy the madness and moth balls.

I predicted to a friend of mine that as soon as Donald Trump was elected President of the United States that the political driven Music Videos and albums were going to hit like a ten ton hammer. I was absolutely correct about that because it’s easy to vilify someone who is generally hated by everyone in the world, but Donald J. Trump isn’t the only subject of LA Industrial rock act 3Teeth’s new music video for their track Away From Me. Hilary Clinton, Vladimir Putin, the Pope, and even Black Friday shoppers are the subject of their eerie sounding music video. Alexis Mincolla tells us, “I believe we live in very regressive times despite our huge advances in technology and communication. We’re still territorially pissing like cavemen, and the tragedy of the commons has become an accepted way of life. The song is really about how strong willed minds can still stay autonomous and empowered even in the face of all this. I wanted the video to represent this from a human story rather than a political one as it’s becoming more and more apparent that geopolitics outweigh the human experience in terms of what is navigating our world.” The song is off of the band’s upcoming record shutdown.exe which is due in stores and online May 19TH via OMF Records. Check out the video below:

1600Everyone’s favorite McDonalds infused Black Sabbath parody band Mac Sabbath is back in the limelight and for very good reason. The band is unleashing a music video for their Paranoid parody track Pair-a-Buns and we have it here as this weeks Music Video Of The Week. The video is cool as flashes back and forth from live action to claymation, but the claymation is what is the cool part of the video. In the claymation, Ronald Osbourne battles all of the fast food chain mascots like KFC’s Colonel Sanders, Hardees star, Jack In The Box, The Burger King, and even the Wendy’s girl in the claymation that was done by Brad Uyeda while the video was directed by Jesus Rivera. While the band may be a joke to some out there in the metal world, there is no denying how clever the band is. People have a tendency to forget that GWAR started out as a joke band and they are still around to this day. Nonetheless, check out the cool video to find out who wins the war. You can also pick up the band’s flexi-disc release of Pair-a-Buns that is featured inside a coloring book here.

We here at Moshpits and Movies love Thrash Metal and we celebrate it proudly with album reviews from each member of the Big Four and various other artists in the community. Last year, we attended the Megadeth spring tour and one of the bands on the bill was a modern day thrash metal band by the name of Havok from Colorado. There were definitely one of the most impressive bands that day for the fact that they were fierce and ferocious. If you love Old School Thrash Metal, then you need to check these guys out for sure. On March 10, the band gears up to release their fourth studio album in Conformicide which is a play on the words conform and suicide. To gear up for the release of the album, the band has unleashed a music video for the track Intention To Deceive which is all about the media and government forcing you to conform to the BS that they are trying to feed you daily. The video is mostly a performance based video with the band playing in front of TV’s with no picture, but white noise.

suicidesilence2017One of the most controversial subjects in all of metal or deathcore is the brand new album that is going to be released by deathcore giants Suicide Silence. The self titled album comes out this Friday (February 24TH) via Nuclear Blast and it’s garnered a lot of flack because of it’s change in sound and style. I for one am all about artists reaching out to find their creative sides because that is what is all about. Being in a band is all about evolving and according to the band they are just exploring the many influences of deathcore. Nonetheless, earlier in the year, the band released a music video for the first track off the record called Doris and this is definitely a finalist for Metal Music Video Of The Year. The band released a 360 degree video which means that you can mess with what you see from various images of the band performing live to recording in the studio and more. It’s definitely a cool way to get fans introduced to the record and what they have in store for all of you. Check out the video below and mess with the angles a little.

downloadOne of the brash and most unapologetic musicians in the world in Adam Darski a.k.a. Nergal of Polish Blackened Death Metal act Behemoth has some thing a little different that he is releasing to the world. While being in a folk/alternative/indie band may not be what fans of his imagined would be next, his newest project Me and That Man is something you just cannot pass up on. I have always been a big fan of the American Recordings of Johnny Cash, the mellower Danzig tracks, and I just discovered a love for Leonard Cohen and that is exactly what you get with Me and That Man and their new music video for the track Ain’t Much Loving. The video is mostly a performance based video whose visuals match the tone of the audio where it’s very mellow and dark. Nergal talked about the project to Noisey saying, “With Me and That Man, the songs just come out in a very organic way. One would be bluesy, one would be more of a ballad, but put together they all made sense. I need Me and That Man to keep the balance, as the potential of my mother band seems limitless. It gets bigger and bigger, more advanced and more sophisticated… and darker …and blacker, but Me and That Man is at the opposite pole, artistically speaking. With all the best art, once you have it in you, you have to release it, otherwise it becomes intoxicating and dangerous to your own system. This is how I deal with my emotions and my dark feelings and shadows. This is not happy music, but it’s liberating.” I think this is an album that everyone should check out on March 24TH when Songs Of Love And Death is released via Cooking Vinyl.

You may be wondering to yourself how the staff here at Moshpits and Movies have chosen a track from an album that came out ten years ago has a music video of the week? Well while that is a good and legitimate question, we must also realize that there is a special reason for it. Back in August of 2006, Stone Sour released their critically acclaimed sophomore album Come What(ever) May which contained amazing tracks like 30/30- 150, Through Glass, Sillyworld, and my personal favorite Zzyzx Rd. Now the track which also happens to be the albums closer, never got the music video treatment it deserved and the band is about to release the tenth anniversary edition of the record which will feature bonus never before heard acoustic and b-sides. To help celebrate that, the band unleashed a music video for the song and we have it here. The video doesn’t feature the band at all, but it features various people walking down the same road as they ponder their life choices. I have always found the songs lyrics to be powerful and just absolutely amazing to listen to. Check it out below and you can pre-order the album right now here.
