The 2015 terrorist attacks on Paris affected not just the iconic French city but the globe, and not just the the ever-turbulent political sphere but the music industry as well. Since acts of terror have become an unfortunately common occurrence in our modern world, we’ve heightened security at large, international events like the Olympics and international hubs of transport such as airports. However, the tragedy that occurred at a concert at the Bataclan was tragic for more than the obvious reason. For many in the music community, like Fit For A King, it was traumatic because it attacked what is supposed to be a safe haven away from all of the horror of the world.
As the name implies, Deathgrip is almost exclusively about mortality, anguish, fear and terror – and it’s a grand time. The chilling intro sets the tone for what is a sheer mosh-fest conducted by the reaper himself for the whole length of the album.
Vanna have just premiered the music video for their new song “Pretty Grim” off the upcoming album All Hell, to be released via Pure Noise Records July 8th. The video follows a young man dressed to the nines in all black who turns out to be Death himself. The video definitely adheres to the name of the song, as yours truly Davey Muise appears to be on Death’s list by the end. Check out the video, pre-order the record, and be sure to catch Vanna on Warped Tour this summer!
