Get Out of the City with Audrey Horne

Do you like your Dale on Ice and feel-good rock n’ roll? Then start your week off right!

Here’s some clarification in case that dumb joke went over your head. Audrey Horne is a Norwegian rock group featuring Arve Isdal (a.k.a. Ice muthafuckin’ Dale) of Enslaved, Thomas Tofthagen of Sahg, and some other really cool cats less relevant to you as metalheads.

They’re getting ready to release their followup to last year’s rowdy ride through Faith No More-ish classic rock, Youngblood. It’s called Pure Heavy, and it’s coming to you on October 7th via Napalm Records. They just dropped the first single with it’s accompanying music video, and it sounds like Pure Heavy is going to be another fist-pumping jaunt through endless hooks and singalong choruses. Fun for the whole family, fools. Your wives / imaginary girlfriends might even dig it!

Rho Stone has been giving his almost-weekly advice on how to make music videos that don’t suck. Last week we learned that being Red Fang typically helps a lot. Here are a few more tips, this time from someone completely unqualified who knows almost nothing about film or anything else:

That’s it. Audrey Horne’s new video does both of these things. If you’ve ever thought, “Gee, I’d really like to see everybody’s bearded Viking brother Johan Hegg of Amon Amarth interact with an Ice Dale puppet in a rock n’ roll music video,” then today is going to be a good day. Watch/listen below, tell me what you think, and preorder Pure Heavy right here.

        When I first made my disqus account, I was debating “Frank” from Blue Velvet, or “Cooper” from Twin Peaks. Love that fucking show mayne. If any of ya’ll ever come up to Washington, you should visit North Bend, a lot of the show was shot there.

    • Tyree

      HA! I forgot Stacy from Wayne’s World was in this show.

        • Tyree

          A gun rack? What am I going to do with a gun rack?

          • Howard Dean

            I don’t own A gun, let alone several guns that would necessitate a gun rack. What am I going to do… with a gun rack?

          • Tyree

            Stacy, we broke up two months ago.

            Well, that doesn’t mean we can’t still go out, does it?

            Well, it does actually, that’s what breaking up is.

          • Howard Dean

            If you’re not careful, Wayne, you’re going to lose me.

            We broke up. Are you mental? Get the net!

          • Tyree

            Hahaha, I fucking enjoy that movie so much.

          • Tyree

            You know, if you stab a man in the dead of winter, steam will rise up from the wounds. Indians believed it was his soul escaping from his body.

          • Howard Dean

            I know what you’d like to do. You’d like to find the guy who did it, rip his still beating heart out of his chest and hold it in front of his face so he can see how black it is before he dies.

            Actually, I was thinking of filing a grievance with the union.

            Well, the world’s a twisted place.

          • Tyree

            “What’s the difference between Pac-Man and Ms. Pac-Man, really?” “Well, she has a bow on her head”. “That’s it? Get right out of town!”

          • Howard Dean

            This man blows goats, I have proof.

          • Tyree

            I’ll have the cream of sumyungi.

          • Howard Dean

            Do I frighten you?

            No.

            Do you want me to?

          • Tyree

            Ribbed for her pleasure. Ewww.

          • Howard Dean

            Excuse me Russell I believe I requested the handjob.

          • Tyree

            If Benjamin were an ice cream flavor, he’d be pralines and dick.

            During Fox hunts, English Lords were allowed to kill and slice open one peasant to warm their boots.

          • Tyree

            Hi. I’m in… Delaware.

          • TrickleDownTacoRiff

            haha! ur supposed to be shocked!

      • Lacertilian

        Why do they come to me to die?
        Why do they come to me to die??

  • Doctor Dickless

    Meh, not really my kind of stuff.

  • A fun little throwback rock song.

    Napalm Records is a sneaky good label. Ahab, Monster Magnet, Deadlock, etc.

  • Stockhausen

    I drink some beer to this.

    • Janitor Jim Dvggan

      If I had some Surge I would drink some to this video but Surge is only sold on Amazon and it is usually out of stock.

    • dang Stock, you start early!

  • Janitor Jim Dvggan

    I love this video so much. I also love the Red Fang music video that was mentioned.

  • W.

    I hope this album is good. I really liked Redemption Blues, but the rest of Youngblood didn’t really scratch my rock itch.

    • Edward Meehan

      I went through a short phase where I was into Graveyard and other retro rock acts.

      • Graveyard is killer live.

        • Edward Meehan

          My tattoo artist echoed that sentiment, he said he was buddy buddy with their drummer and he has seen them live a few times. Good band.

        • Jormungandr

          I saw them with The Shrine. That was a fun ass concert

        • Scrimm
      • Janitor Jim Dvggan

        I enjoyed Ghost for quite a bit of time but it didn’t last because of the covers EP.

      • W.

        Retro just doesn’t do much for me, sadly.

        • Edward Meehan

          Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats Blood Lust was killer, Mind Control wasn’t nearly as good imho.

          • Howard Dean

            100% agree on that.

          • KJM

            Seeing them on Thursday!

  • Guacamole Jim

    This is an awesome jam! On play #3 right now.

  • YourLogicIsFlushed

    I usually don’t like dis, but I like dis.

  • YourLogicIsFlushed

    Is anyone else constantly getting upvotes from comments you made on MS like 6 months ago? Who does that?

    • Edward Meehan

      Yes.

    • Dëpütÿ Dïpshït

      Vince and Axl are doing this to try to get us to click back.

    • yes. it’s a testament (m/) to our witty comments.

    • Sponge Of Mystery

      It’s cuz metalsucks keeps promoting their “classic” articles from the past cuz they can’t write any new good ones

      • Tyree

        Classic!?

    • Cock ov Steele

      So it’s not just me then.

    • Xan

      One of my pinnacles of success was when I absolutely faced some dipshit on an Allegaeon video.

      • The Satan Ov Nvklear Hell

        I love when people use kid as an insult. It just makes me picture them in one a’ them japanese cartoons

        • Xan

          It’s the most pathetic insult of all time yet frustrating at the same time. Despite the fact that I’m not a kid, I can’t say I’m not because EVERYONE says that. I use a much different insult in real life but I shan’t repeat it here.

          • The Satan Ov Nvklear Hell

            I feel ya, the best way to go about “kid” insults is to not respond to them, that way they just look like idiots.

  • Matt Pike’s Sweaty Left Nipple

    Love Audrey Horne. No shame in admitting that.

  • Pagliacci is Kvlt

    Director: “Hey Johan, I have this idea for a video I’m doing for Audrey Horne. I’d like you to be the star of the video. Are you interested?”
    Johan: “Ja!”
    Director: “Cool, man! You’re going to be pretending to sing along with the song, so you might want to be familiar with the lyrics. You OK with that?”
    Johan: “Ja!”
    Director: “OK, I’ll send you a copy of the track so you can listen to it a few times.”
    Johan: “Ja!” *throws song away, goes shopping for new Under Armour shirts, then pounds down some mead*

  • Xan

    I’m not ashamed to admit that I look feel-good rock like this. I also love Johan Hegg.

  • Max

    Even distracted by breakfast and listening on terrible over-compressed laptop speakers with no bottom end, I can tell this is a catchy song. Gonna have to listen again at some point today.

  • Wizard Aura

    Thin Lizzy is like the new Black Sabbath
