In anticipation of the release of their sophomore EP entitled “Punishment“, Southern California Blackened Death Metal outfit Witch Casket have premiered music video for the title track from their upcoming album due out October 15th via Metal Insider. The video was filmed in Los Angeles and directed by the band’s vocalist Drogoth.
Watch the video below.
Vocalist Drogoth had this to say about the video:
“This was just one of those weird concepts that just popped into my head one evening, and I became obsessed with it and had to make it happen. Basically, I was listening to an oldies rock station, and I started thinking about what it would look like if a Death Metal band was featured on a British Pop Music TV Show. A lot of the art direction ideas came from the first appearance of The Beatles on The Ed Sullivan show in 1964. I used that as a visual target and put the rest together with my own ideas. I needed a period appropriate band to open the video to add contrast, so I elicited the help of my buddies from the Rockabilly band” SoCal Rocket Dynamics” to play the opening act. British actor Scott Butler is also a friend who I thought was perfect for the role of the Host. It was a really fun project and I sincerely enjoyed getting all of these incredibly talented artists together to make something cool!”
