UK death metallers DESECRATION have unveiled their new music video “Coffin Smasher”, taken from their forthcoming new album, Cemetery Sickness, due out on June 26th via Metal Age Productions. Watch HERE.
The band talk about the track: “We’ve thought about doing videos for songs in the past” stated the band. “We’ve sat down with people to bounce ideas across for storylines etc. but they’ve never amounted to anything. This time we knew it had to happen with everything being online these days. So we collared Adam Edgerley (drummer Mic and Cemetery Sickness producer Joe Thompsons partners at Sonic Forge). We knew Adam would do a fantastic job, and also remain patient while we threw more and more challenging ideas at him. Fair play, we couldn’t be happier with how it came out. We chose this song for the video because every time we played it in the rehearsal rooms we knew it was a corker. The lyrical content meant that it was easy enough to think of a narrative for the video too, and we thought it was achievable whilst also being pretty daring. The indoor performance shots were recorded in a church that our friend Chi from Spider Kitten owns up in the valleys, and the outdoor scenes we filmed… locally. I don’t want to say much more there, as let’s just say we weren’t supposed to be there. Shooting the video was exactly how you would expect digging a 6 foot hole in the pissing rain at night would be. We didn’t want to cut any corners, so everything you see on the video actually happened.”
Comments vocalist/guitarist Ollie Jones: “There is no particular theme to this album but several of the songs are set in the graveyard. We’ve tried to hit the gore and perversion extremities that we’ve touched on from the start of the bands career but now we are playing better than ever.”
In relation to previous album Forensix, Cemetery Sickness is more of the same only better and in terms of production… “We’ve gone for a natural drum sound and generally keeping it old school as that’s what we are fans of.”
Cemetery Sickness was recorded at Sonic Forge Studio, Cardiff, Wales and was produced by Joe Thompson. Jumali Katan, who is known for his work with SCENT OF DEATH and THY ART IS MURDER, undertook artwork for Cemetery Sickness.
