Once again, we’re overjoyed to be able to present a video before anyone else. This time we have a belter for you from Akiavel’s current album Væ Victis. Definitely a song that need cranked up loud! The band tell us a little more about the song itself:
“Lady of Death” is a song about Aileen Wuornos. I absolutely wanted to put her on our album because I find her fascinating. I have studied her story a lot, I have a lot of compassion for her despite the fact that she has murdered people. That’s why the text isn’t very violent or bloody, it’s more based on how she feels. She had a lot of suffering in her.
For the video clip we got closer to her psychological state. That’s why we chose the actress who clearly embodied her conscience and the struggle within her.
Akiavel released their second full-length, Væ Victis on April 23rd, 2021! Not allowing a global pandemic to slow them down, “Væ Victis” comes only one year after Akiavel’s debut full-length album. This concept album delves into the darkest parts of the human psyche. Further evolving their sound, Akiavel takes a radical approach to their musical assault, consuming the listener with dizzying maelstroms of chaos. Væ Victis embodies the word “death”, putting forth an intrusive battery of blistering guitars, pummeling drums, and scathing vocals that culminates in one of the most robust death metal records the genre has seen yet.
