Today, Punknews is pleased to debut the new video by Beechwood!

Built around a cold wave of shimmering guitars and wails, "This Time Around" pulls from the sinister aesthetic of first wave goth and the mid-70s nihilism of Bowie and Lou Reed in equal measures. Fittingly, images of war and chaos are layered on top of these nasty vibes, suggesting that the terror of the past may very well be right around the corner.

Speaking to Punknews, the band's Gordon Larence said, "There is a certain driving force or intensity in “This Time Around” that (in my mind) is met with images of conquering armies, cities burning, a sort of Wagnerian Götterdämmerung. We even recorded ourselves in combat boots marching in place on a tiled floor to enhance the effect in the song. It’s claustrophobic, paranoid, destructive, but also-- in a way it’s therapeutic. There is a certain freedom in the knowledge that any day it can all be over. The use of historical/pop-culture references illustrates this sense of impending doom. I have no doubt that humanity will one day do itself in for good, and what more damning evidence does one need than our own recent history?"

The band's new album is out now and you can pick it up here. Meanwhile, see the new video below.

MOL: 'Burma'

Danish blackgaze outfit MOL have released a video for their song "Burma" off their upcoming debut LP Jord out April 13th via Holy Roar Records. MOL explains: "As human beings, we fear the expiration of life and avoid the topic if confronted with the question of death. In modern culture we struggle to let go of our youth, as if we would go on living forever, and avoid the hard truth that everything eventually will come to an end. We all strive to make a mark that will last past our own lifetime — to make something that will make us timeless. However, in doing so we lose sight of the present. This is what the song challenges." Check out the video below.
