American sci-fi power metal duo DIRE PERIL featuring Jason Ashcraft (Helion Prime) and vocalist John Yelland (Judicator) are premiering their latest music video Blood In The Ice. The song is their third single off their upcoming album “The Extraterrestrial Compendium” due out November 9th, 2018 via Divebomb Records to follow their three previous EP releases “Astronomical Minds” (2013), “Queen of The Galaxy” (2014) and “Through Time and Space” (2015).
“We are pleased to release the first official music video. The song ‘Blood In The Ice’ is based on John Carpenter’s ‘The Thing’, which is a personal favorite of our vocalist John. When writing this song it was the only one I didn’t have a movie chosen for and told him he’s welcome to choose the movie. I think it worked out great as the music really captures the essence of that film. For the video we decided to have some fun with it. John ended up writing a script for an original story that basically pays tribute to the film.” – John Yelland (vocals) and Jason Ashcraft (guitar, bass)
