METALLICA NEW SONG 'SREAMING SUICIDE'
METALLICA has released the official Tim Saccenti-directed music video for a new song called "Screaming Suicide". The track is taken from the band's 12th studio album, "72 Seasons".
METALLICA frontman James Hetfield: "'Screaming Suicide' addresses the taboo word of suicide.
The intention is to communicate about the darkness we feel inside. It's ridiculous to think we should deny that we have these thoughts. At one point or another, I believe most people have thought about it. To face it is to speak the unspoken. If it's a human experience, we should be able to talk about it. You are not alone."
Regarding the "Screaming Suicide" music video, METALLICA said: "We first worked with Tim on 'Lux Æterna'
and were so blown away that we asked him to come back for round two."

JETHRO TULL ANNONCES 23rd STUDIO ALBUM, 'RöKFLöTE'
JETHRO TULL will release its 23rd studio album, "RökFlöte", on April 21.
Ian explains the album's title & theme in more detail: "The title of this offering went through a little change or two along the way. I started with the idea of a predominantly instrumental album for rock flute — as in rock music.
When the subject material of the album presented itself, I was drawn to the term Ragnarök from Norse mythology — their version of apocalyptic end times or Biblical Armageddon.
The 'final showdown' scenario is ubiquitous and inherent in Hinduism, Christianity and Islam, for example.
Ragnarök translates as 'destiny of the Gods', the rök part meaning destiny, course, direction.
With umlaut firmly in place, courtesy of the Germanic origins of Old Norse, Flute became Flöte in keeping with the spelling. With me so far? I just can't miss the glorious opportunity for a good and legitimate umlaut."
They also sees the launch of the first single from the album, and you can watch the stunning animated video for "Ginnungagap" (created by Costin Chioreanu) below. The track takes inspiration from the god Ymir, the proto-being, a primeval being, who was born from venom that dripped from the icy rivers called the Élivágar,
and lived in the grassless void of Ginnungagap.

HIM's VILLE VALO SHARES MUSIC VIDEO FOR 'NEON NOIR'
HIM mastermind Ville Valo (VV) has released the official music video for the title track of his debut solo album,
Regarding the lyrical inspiration for "Neon Noir", Ville told Kerrang! magazine: "I wouldn't call it 'suicidal', but most of the stuff was written during the pandemic, and there weren't many rays of sun hitting me. Everybody was in the mental gutter. Times were tough. This album was the kind of like the lifebuoy for me. It gave me a reason to wake up every morning and work on something else and try to shut the world outside. When I was working on the music, maybe it was selfish to a certain extent, but also it was a matter of survival."
