Phinehas have premiered a music video for the title track to their latest album ‘The Fire Itself’. Ricky Norris directed the video, which the band’s frontman Sean McCulloch had the following to say about:

“This music video serves as a vivid and visually violent representation of what it means to not just be the heat or light, but in ‘The Fire Itself‘. It’s a song about becoming yourself in the truest sense and exploring by burning away the old self to allow your new self room to grow.”

“I think Ricky [Norris, director] really captured his vision in an aggressive and visually beautiful way. We’ve worked with Ricky on numerous videos in the past and we knew that he would do justice to the song and album overall. Also, my 3-year-old son, Aiden, was able to be in the video, and I couldn’t be more proud.”

In 2019, the Swedish power metal heroes, Majestica, released their debut album Above The Sky and quickly followed it up with their Christmas musical album, A Christmas Carol, in late 2020. Both albums were a huge success in the metal community, but when the time finally came to present their music to live audiences, the COVID-19 pandemic hit and made all touring impossible.

Today Bloodlines release ‘Lotus,’ the second single from their upcoming EP “Hevel.” The EP marries classic metal core with a distinctly progressive twist, and sees the Gulf Coast 4-piece taking cues from bands like For Today, Impending Doom and Convictions.

Hevel” was written to address seasons of life, with the band taking inspiration from the biblical book of Ecclesiastes.

Ecclesiastes uses the word “meaningless” a lot which is translated to “hevel” in Hebrew and has a different interpretation. The word hevel in the context of the book means vanishing vapor or smoke. So in essence, Ecclesiastes wasn’t necessarily saying that the work and the seasons we go through in life are meaningless, but rather they are just fleeting, ever changing. Like vapor, here one minute and gone the next.

“Hevel” will be released on November 12 on Facedown Records.
