Verlorener (Ex-Chimaira, Etc.) Debut “Devil In The Room” Video


Verlorener, the latest project from Emil Werstler (Dååth, ex-Chimaira), has premiered a video for “Devil In The Room“. Premier Guitar debuted the video and also have an interview up with Werstler. Speaking of the video itself, he commented:

“I went down to Atlanta and did a 14-hour shoot on a Sunday, and they had what they needed. It’s cool to see something that ancient—that digitized found footage—with glitching and all this weird stuff happening.

The footage is a mixture of 35 mm, 16 mm, and 8 mm test film, with models and actors, combined with recently found 8 mm reels the director’s grandfather shot in the ’40s, ’50s, and ’60s.

They embody the Americana era that no longer exists and wasn’t as quaint as it seemed underneath the surface. Although this era is often the collective, romantic fantasy, we can neither recreate it, nor do we truly crave that way of living 50 years later.

We all have the capability to be the devil in the room in our personal relationships as they fall to pieces.”

A crowdfunded self-titled debut album from the project was released this past April.
