Canadian avant garde metal outfit Voivod have posted a video for the song "Kluskap O'Kom" at the official YouTube channel of Century Media Records.
Vocalist Denis "Snake " Bélanger commented on the story behind the song title as follows:
Sometimes described as a giant coming out of the woods, sometimes a monster in a lake or sometimes a powerful being that came from the sky, Kluskap is the name for this strange character and O'Kom is the place where he lives. Kluskap is inspired by a legend from a Canadian native tribe called the Micmacs. He once came to earth to kill all the Dinosaurs in order to help the humans to take over the planet. One day Kluskap will come back with another mission to the humans. There are many similarities between the Kluskap story and other legends from tribes all around the globe; stories told of encounters with beings from other worlds. This one is very unique, I thought.

German drummer extraordinaire Hannes Grossmann (Obscura/Blotted Science) will release his first solo album, entitled The Radial Covenant in December.
Grossmann commented on his first solo effort as follows:
The music on the album sounds a lot like my band Obscura, but that's just how I compose. The reason not to release it as an Obscura album is simple: Obscura is a band, which means that four people work together and create music as a collective. If I write 45 minutes of music on my own, it has to be a solo record. It's probably gonna take another year until a new Obscura album will see the light of day, so here's your chance to make time pass more quickly.
The album features guest participations from Jeff Loomis (ex-Nevermore), Christian Muenzner (Obscura, Spawn of Possession), Linus Klausenitzer (Obscura), Florian Magnus Meier (Noneuclid, Dark Fortress), Per Nilsson (Scar Symmetry), Ron Jarzombek (Spastic Ink, Watchtower), Jimmy Pitts (Sp ...more
