The soundtrack for Kurt Cobain biography Montage Of Heck will be released in December. Director Brett Morgen has revealed that the cassette tapes, home recordings, and other archival material will come together and be released as a new Kurt Cobain album.

[NEWS] Spotify – Premium Only?

傳聞 Spotify 將限制免費服務?! 據 Digital Music News 所述,Spotify 極有可能轉變經營模式,把免費服務變為只限會員使用,免費用戶只可以聆聽每個專輯的少數曲目,更不容許試聽新曲!

According to Digital Music News, Spotify will soon be shifting towards a premium-only, ‘gated access’ model, according to several sources speaking in confidence.

[NEWS] Devilment – Sanity Hits A (Perfect) Zero

金屬追隨者要注意喔!以 Cradle of Filth 主唱 Dani Filth 為首的另一樂團 Devilment 推出充滿詭異感覺的新音樂視頻 Sanity Hits A (Perfect) Zero。內容極具朋克哥特式馬戲團的感覺!Dani 介紹:「拍攝這個視頻的過程非常有趣,因為我們決定以混亂、復古、污穢幾個元素來製作,就像發現懷舊相機底片般,充滿迷幻後世界末日的意境。」

New music for metal followers! Devilment, featuring Cradle Of Filth frontman Dani Filth, has a new music video for its song “Sanity Hits A (Perfect) Zero” and it’s pretty strange. It has this very steampunk gothic circus feeling to it.! Filth describes “It was enormous fun filming the video for ‘Sanity Hits A (Perfect) Zero‘ as it was decided that it would appear very chaotic, retro and dirty from an early stage, as if the discovered film stock had slightly perished with age, bringing with it a psychedelically lurid post-apocalyptic vision.”
