In anticipation of the release of their debut EP entitled "Hatred Index", Southern California Blackened Death Metal outfit Witch Casket have announced the release of the music video for "The True Knot", one of the tracks from their upcoming album due out April 27th. The video was filmed in Los Angeles and directed by the band's vocalist "Drogoth".
Watch the video HERE.
Drogoth had this to say about the video:
"Since our first music video was mainly a "performance" video, I wanted to do something more cinematic and story driven. The video finds the band members fleeing the city, being pursued by an unseen adversary, or perhaps being drawn to the outskirts by the call of a coven of powerful witches. The band is taken on a journey that serves as a sort of "origin story", following them through a transformation from crestfallen reprobates to a stronger, more unified force. The video was shot on location in Downtown Los Angeles, as well as along the Angeles Crest Highway in the San Gabriel mountains."
"The True Knot" will be the third video released by the band, following the release of a lyric video for the song "That Damn Devil", and the music video for the album's title track "Hatred Index", both of which are available on the band's YouTube channel HERE.
