Korn have accompanied their new single ‘Cold’, taken from their latest album ‘The Nothing’, with an explosive live video. The video was taken from the band’s album intimate launch event in September and gives us an insight into what we can expect when they play Donington next year. One thing’s for sure – despite being 26 years into their career, they’re not slowing down.

black veil brides release ‘the night’

Stop the press! Black Veil Brides have announced plans to release new music in the form of ‘duologies’ – EPs consisting of two tracks. The first EP, ‘The Night’, is made up of ‘Saints Of The Blood’ and ‘The Vengeance’ and is available to stream now. These songs are also the first with new bassist Lonny Eagleton. Watch the crazy video for ‘Saints Of The Blood’ below.

We wouldn’t have put Wednesday 13 and Gary Numan together, but somehow it works! The Duke Of Spook has put his own horror punk twist on the new wave superstar’s song, ‘Films’. The cover features guest vocals from Calico Cooper of Beasto Blanco, and keys and synth from Roy Mayorga of Stone Sour!

bleed from within are back

Glaswegian metallers Bleed From Within return with their first new music since their 2018 album, ‘Era’. New single ‘The End Of All We Know’ is absolutely huge and a total earworm. The band have also confirmed that their fifth album will be coming next year. We’re stoked.

Speaking about the track and their upcoming new album, Bleed From Within said: “The doubt and fear that consumed us for years has been replaced with an insatiable hunger to grow as people. We’ve noticed this shift in energy and channelled it into our music. As a result, our new album is the strongest and most uplifting we have ever written”.

“‘The End Of All We Know’ acknowledges a brighter future in the face of seemingly endless oppression. The journey of this band has been arduous, but we always find strength in each other, our music and the people who support us. We thank you all! Hopefully you too can take something positive from the song and its message. Play it loud”.

Catch Korn, Black Veil Brides, Wednesday 13, and Bleed From Within when they join headliners KISS, Iron Maiden and System Of A Down at Download 2020. It takes place 12th-14th June in Donington Park.
