Terrorizer were granted the scoop on this story yesterday so I’ve held back a day to let them get the glory :)
Why is it that a band formed over 20 years ago that has toured in almost every corner of the globe and has released half a dozen albums; the controversial first ‘Gore & Perversion’ being banned immediately upon its release under the Obscene Publications Act leading to the bands arrest, has never made a music video? The answer… who cares? Because today ‘Welsh Death Metal Bastards’ Desecration unleash their debut video “Coffin Smasher”, taken from the forthcoming album Cemetery Sickness.
“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.”
