Manchester’s favourite metallers The Dead XIII have released a stunning music video for their track ‘Daemons‘. The single is taken from the bands critically acclaimed 2015 debut album ‘Catacombs‘, which was recorded, mixed and mastered at the world renowned Hellfire Studios.
The haunting video shows glimpses of the mysterious cloaked figure haunting the unsuspecting band members.
The Dead XIII comment:
“Daemons is about the inner darkness that every person experiences at one time or another in their lives. The demon in the video is stalking each of us in a warehouse labyrinth. Everyone has different demons, when we were coming up with the concept for the video we deliberately wanted the demon to be faceless. The idea is that when people are watching it they can interpret the demon in their own way.”
Since bursting onto the scene in 2013, The Dead XIII have wasted no time in grabbing audiences by the scruff of their necks and laying waste to stages across the UK.
The five piece has been on quite a run since the release of ‘Catacombs’, most notably for their song writing as well as stunning live shows. ‘Daemons’ is the fifth single to be released from the album – which has also spawned two lyric videos, a fan video and the bands stunning debut video ‘XIII’.
The Dead XIII were also rated as one of Kerrang Magazine’s top acts of 2015, and ‘Catacombs’ as one of the top albums.
Bringing together elements of rock, metal, punk and adding a dusting of horror as well as a multitude of riffage; The Dead XIII continue to forge their own path, continuing to give their hungry audience something fresh to get their teeth into.
Praise for The Dead XIII:
“Oozing with pure gothic sludge, this debut could well see The Dead XIII rising from the grave to become the next horror cult. KKKK”
“A swaggering, worm infested horror movie rock out”
“Furious guitar riffery blended in with truly ferocious synthesizers, roaring vocal screams and drums that pound into the listener so hard that even Ron Jeremy would be put to shame.“
