DESTRAGE – Premiere New Music Video

Italian progressive metalcore act DESTRAGE have posted a music video for “Hey, Stranger,” a track from their newly released album, The Chosen One. The clip was directed by Matteo Di Gioia and is viewable above.

Beheaded rolled into life in 1991 with Malta as a backdrop to its caustic roots of death metal. Drawing inspiration from death metal hailing from Europe and the US back then and diving head on in the tape trading, zine, snail mail networks, Beheaded furnaced its demo Souldead in 1995. Statement made. European and worldwide record deals preceded the final cementation of the band as a placeholder in the extreme music scene...
