Dani Filth project Devilment feeling “rejected” in latest video

Posted by on September 26, 2014

The debut album from Devilment, The Great And Secret Show, featuring the mighty Dani Filth of Cradle of Filth, comes out this Halloween, October 31st. The first video from the new album is for the song, “Even Your Blood Group Rejects Me,” and it’s so metal it comes with a seizure warning for all its flashing imagery.

Said Dani Filth on the making of the video:

“When we approached undertaking a video for the track ‘Even Your Blood Group Rejects Me’, the intention was to create something very visually disturbing, yet stunning to look at, in a minimalistic monochrome context. The idea was to really bring out the performance of the track and marry it to phantasmagorical images, all cut to the massive pounding beat.”

Filth further explains more details about the video:

“Through the inclusion of smoke, strobe-lighting, fire, Theban masks, exotic dance and silhouette, we have endeavoured to create a mystic atmosphere in which we plunged the entire studio into complete and utter darkness, so that the viewer’s full attention is focused on these aforementioned traits, set adrift against what appears to be the timeless whirls of space. Sam Scott-Hunter the director and his assistant for the day, band photographer Dex Jezierski, both pulled out all the stops to make this video come to horrid artistic fruition, and we even enlisted the help of my wife Toni and daughter Luna for hair, angle-grinding, make-up and costume, all for the benefit of keeping our cinematic occult activities a closed secret from the unsuspecting human world. As a band we are all extremely pleased with the outcome of our dalliance with the dark arts and hope that viewers to this visual feast will enjoy it just as much as we did weaning the video from it’s deep Satanic birth.”

Bam Margera appears on the new album on a bonus track, lending vocals to a Midnight Oil cover of  ‘Beds Are Burning.’ Devilment will embark on a European tour with Lacuna Coil and Motionless in White starting on Halloween night.
