The Defiled Release “Five Minutes” Music Video

The Defiled have issued the following music video for their track “Five Minutes“. Greenland serves as the backdrop for the clip, which also pays tribute to fans who lost members of their family and loved ones. Programmer/keyboardist/vocalist The AvD said of the track and clip:

Five Minutes is probably our most emotional song, and the one most personal to me. We didn’t originally plan to film a video for this, but when we were out in Greenland we had the opportunity to film the performance part.

Despite the breathtaking beauty of our surroundings, that wasn’t enough to really convey the deep emotions of this song, so as a song that deals with loss, we asked our fans to share their stories with us, and offered them the chance to pay tribute to their lost loved ones. The feedback was overwhelming – in more ways than one – and you couldn’t help but be touched reading all the stories the ‘defilers’ shared with us.

The day of filming was an emotional rollercoaster – bittersweet. So much sadness in the air, but also therapeutic at the same time. I think everyone there felt the same. It’s easy to look at people like us – metalheads, goths, whatever you want to call us – and think we are morbid people obsessed with death, that death is something we welcome, but just ‘cos we wear black it doesn’t make us immune to grief. The pain one feels when losing someone close is universal, and something no one is exempt from.

I want to thank all of the defilers who came along to take part in this. You are all beautiful, brave and have helped us make our best video yet – thank you”

Triptykon Release “Tree Of Suffocating Souls” Music Video

Triptykon‘s “Tree Of Suffocating Souls” music video received its debut online today below. The band again worked with director Philipp Hirsch on the clip. Triptykon‘s Tom Gabriel Warrior said of the experience:

“In producing this footage, we have elected to once again work in partnership with long-standing Triptykon collaborator and director, Philipp Hirsch, in Leipzig, Germany. As intensely minimalist as Triptykon‘s approach and music are, as perfect and passionate was Philipp in creating images which combine such minimalism with the required darkness.

The night during which most of these images were created was, for many reasons, a truly extraordinary night none of us shall ever forget.”
