Countdown to Oblivion Feb 23rd - Best Music Videos of the Week
The weekly tally of the best new music videos from the world of heavy music in the Countdown to Oblivion have crowned it's most recent winner.
In a week that included a field of heavyweight competitors, the latest collaboration between LA noise purveyors HEALTH and groove metal Goliath Lamb of God has reached the coveted number one spot.
“Cold Blood” presents a masterful meld of HEALTH’s cinematic scope, accentuated with Lamb of God guitarist Willie Adler’s crippling fretwork and vocalist Randy Blythe’s relentless vocal command. The project emphasizes the cross-section of heavy that exists between two polarized, powerful styles and is obviously resonating well with fans.
