Lions At The Gate (Ex-Ill Niño) Premiere “Bed Of Nails” Music Video


Lions At The Gate, who feature ex-Ill Niño members Cristian Machado, Ahrue “Luster” Ilustre and Diego Verduzco, have premiered a music video directed by Vicente Cordero for their latest single “Bed Of Nails“. The band’s lineup is completed by bassist Stephen Brewer (Westfield Massacre) and drummer Fern Lemus.

Speaking of this new track, Machado offered:

“‘Bed Of Nails‘ is a song that was brought in by Diego, a string of riffs that told a story. Kile pushed the dynamics of the song into extremes by surrounding Diego’s riffs with ghostly verses. Ahrue and Steve rounded off some of the parts and the bridge of the song. When I heard the demo, I fell in love with the heavy riff and the double bass, especially followed by those intimate and creepy verses. That caught my attention instantly. When we got the final mixes back from Kile, I realized how strong the song was.

The message of the song is not hidden in the lyric, it is blatantly about deep inner struggle to accept the things you can not change. I think, especially to embrace those things which blossom growth, even when they involve intense struggle. It’s a theme stitched well into the album. Laying out a maze, attempting to discover an exit path, trying to cut through the uncertainty of life and the chaos of the world. Really though, aren’t we all?”

The band’s live debut at The Whisky A Go Go in Hollywood, CA has been scheduled for April 28th. Thrown Into Exile and Breaking In A Sequence (ex-Korn) will also be on the bill.
