LA Based Heavy Metal Band WORLDWIDE PANIC has revealed a first listen to their newest single, “Party.” With production collaboration from GEMINI SYNDROME’s AARON NORDSTROM,

“This song is a chronicle of my battles with substance abuse and how a lot of fun can in my case, lead to life feeling hopeless. There is a message of “dark hope” in this song. I feel like sharing my story in the most transparent way I can hopefully will help others make better life choices”
– Lane Steele (Bass / Vocals)

Player

“On this track we had the pleasure of having my good friend Aaron Nordstrom help produce the vocals. He had this to say, “I’ve known Lane Steele for many years since we were in school together. I’ve seen him evolve and work very hard for awhile and find his voice as a musician. I had the pleasure of working on the song “Party” and enjoyed it very much. It was a smooth workflow and resulted in a great song. Take a listen and be sure to catch them on the road with Flaw this fall.”
– Aaron Nordstrom (Gemini Syndrome)

Meka Nism Releases Official Music Video for “The War Inside”

Florida based alternative metal band Meka Nism has released the official music video for their single “The War Inside,” off of their upcoming, as yet unnamed EP. Originally premiered on New Noise Magazine, “The War Inside” was directed by Jim Dougherty with creative direction from front-woman Meka.

The music video for ” The War Inside” is the visual representation of the internal struggles that some of us battle throughout our entire lives. From anxiety to depression, addiction and insecurity, we all deal with some type of inner demons that affect us on different levels. In the video, the story is one of self healing through the spiritual journey of the Shaman. Meka portrays both her own lost soul fragments and her own hero. She faces her fears by confronting them head on in each of her energy centers, which are portrayed by six butoh dancers. We each have the power and courage to face our struggles and to save ourselves from all that we are desperately fighting. The intention behind “The War Inside” is to help inspire and create the energy to empower others to take their own healing journey and know that everything we need to win our war is already inside of us,” – Meka

The Cambridge English Dictionary defines mechanism as ‘a mechanical contrivance; structure of a machine.’ Well, that dictionary will soon need a new entry which reads ‘Meka Nism: totally uncontrived, a new structure of metal music.’ Originally formed in 2006 under the steampunk-sounding name of Meka Nism and the Rusty Years; the band, now known as the more streamlined Meka Nism, has mutated into the awesome future-forming metallic behemoth it is now. Featuring a band firing on all cylinders and the most charismatic front-woman, Meka Nism have supported legends like MastodonGojiraThe OffspringLimp BizkitOtep and In Flames. The very diversity of their support slots speaks volumes for Meka Nism, they are a true 21st century band, building new edifices on what has come before.

Inspired by MetallicaJoan JettIron MaidenSlayerGhost, guitarist Bobby Keller describes Meka Nism’s sound as “powerful, metallic, aggressive ,melodic, and in your face.”

Bobby explains the meaning of the band’s name. “Meka Nism means a well-oiled metal machine with great power! With all of the elements, the band members combine, we make one machine.”

Bobby can’t wait for Meka Nism’s fans to hear their new EP. “The musical element is superior to any thing we’ve done before. We are ready to take the world by storm. We know we have something special and are at the forefront of something new in metal. Our lyrics come from a lot of spiritual influences, Meka studies shamanism and takes a very specific healing approach to all her lyrics.”

Meka Nism, live, emit “pure power and energy. We are a LIVE band, hands down. Our shows are packed and we thrive off the energy of our audiences. We take it and punch it right back to them. There is no let up. You can expect your neck to hurt a lot after our shows.”

Industrial Rock/Metal artists Zeistencroix have released the video for their new song “Saturated”. Saturated was produced by Bill Metoyer, who has worked with other artists such as Slayer, WASP, SIx Feet Under and more.

It’s about the discovering of the truth, when someone advises you or enlighten you on certain topics or situations that you otherwise would’ve never foreseen, and in this case it’s about the count of Monte Cristo that once imprisoned he realizes he’s been set up an incarcerated because of his own friends and that’s why “the truth it´s poison going over saturated and anything will never be the same” – Orlando Draven of Zeistencroix
