Music video from extreme metal band Massakren. From their 2011 demo recorded at Bota Studio and mastered by James Murphy.
Though Spencer and I are from the Chicagoland area, we didnâ€™t solidify Massakrenâ€™s lineup until I briefly attended Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana. There I met Charlie and Justinian, wrote a bunch of songs, and we started promoting and gigging anywhere we could. As such, we started getting a big following in Bloomington, as well as the rest of Indiana. While we were doing OK in the Midwest, we wanted to spread our music as far as possible. A music video seemed like the next logical step in getting our stuff heard and seen.
We knew what we wanted to do for the video, but we needed a crew. Fortunately for us the guys at Perfect Cut Productions had seen us play many times before and were fans of the band, and were eager to work with us. Perfect Cut, as well as various others who helped on the set, are all fans and friends of the band, so we had a really casual and supportive environment to get our vision on film.
We found this really industrial looking area to shoot, and decided to focus just on the band and avoid a storyline, as the song and lyrics were pretty straightforward. We wanted it to showcase our live appeal, technical skill, and represent us as a band.
