Last's week's competition via the Knotfest Countdown to Oblivion voting bracket was an impressive collection of the goods. Ranging from deathcore to hardcore, beatdown to mathcore - the focused list of 10 of the fiercest and freshest music videos proved a tough task to ask of the fans - which one was tops?
This week's winner was the US/Scotland connection in monstrous mathcore machine of Frontierer. The band's combustible "Glacial Plasma" is a pulverizing show of musical force that challenges the conventional idea of heavy music and take it to impressive new heights. Combined with a darkly futuristic visual, the band managed to earn top honors for the week, edging out stiff competition from the likes of Don Broco, Full of Hell, Alien Weaponry, deathcore juggernaut Brand of Sacrifice, and promising prospects like Traitors and Dying Wish.
Every week fans will have the chance to Vote for the week’s Best New Music Video and watch the results live. Countdown to Oblivion with Hardcore Keem airs Thursday at 4pm PT/7pm ET on Knotfest Twitch.
