San Francisco natives, Golden Void have released a video for 'Burbank's Dream', the first track off their recently released second album, Berkana.
"'Burbank's Dream' is the second release from Berkana that explores ideas of nature and time and the interplay between the two," says vocalist/keyboardist Camilla Saufley-Mitchell, "which is why we wanted to work with altered, sweeping images of natural features -- to show the effects of time on the natural landscape."
Following the departure of Chris Broderick and Shawn Drover and their ensuing creation of Act of Defiance, and the following drafting of Angra and solo guitarist Kiko Loureiro and Lamb of God's Chris Adler, Megadeth have released the first song (Fatal Illusion) from their new album, Dystopia, which is currently slated for an early 2016 release.
Out of the blue, Moby has released a new electro-punk song, entitled 'The Light Is Clear In My Eyes'. Dubbed as Moby & The Void Pacific Choir, further details regarding the project are yet to be announced.

Russian/Ukrainian post rock/doom outfit Kauan have premiered a second music video/lyrics video for their upcoming 7th album, Sorni Nai.
The album is a single, 52-minute-long track, ruminating on the infamous Djatlov Pass Incident - a case where 9 hikers mysteriously perished in the frost-laden Ural Mountains, and the case was shut by Soviet investigators before any explanation could be offered, leading some to believe extraterrestrial forces were at work.
The video showcases from 12:42 to 18:40 of the album.
Sorni Nai is currently available for pre-order through Blood Music with an expected release of October 20th.

Pop Punk quartet, The Matches, release their first song in 6 years after touring in honor of their debut album E. Von Dahl Killed The Locals. Frontman, Shawn Harris, stated the following:
“None of us really planned on writing new Matches music, but after the shows, we were hit with inspiration and creativity. While we were living in different places around the U.S. and working on other things, we managed to work remotely on a batch of songs, but zeroed in on two. We wanted them to be great and something you guys would love.

After discovering and repairing a broken classical guitar, experimental project Nightmare Puppy has released a surprise single, entitled 'Fallsong: Found Single'. The track is composed entirely of recordings made with this guitar.
The single offers a satire on the concept of "found music", as revealed by the album description:
"I wondered if by finding an instrument I could facetiously call it a "found instrument" and laughed because I still couldn't produce True Found Music with my found instrument. In any case, I thought I would use this musical offering that Fate had provided me with to record a tribute to True Found Music".
