The King Is Blind are delighted to excrete into existence their first promo video. Entitled ‘…For All The Daemons Are Here’, the track is the first video from the bands upcoming ‘Our Father’ album, released on Cacophonous Records on 29th January 2016.
“The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old but on building the new” – Socrates.
Featuring a sensational throat-ripping guest vocal from Lord Christopher Naughton (Winterfylleth), the track combines punishing riffing, and hard metal trappings.
Written and directed by guitarist Lee James Appleton, and brought to life by the talented Danny B of HVR Video, …For All The Daemons Are Here is, in Appleton’s own words:
“a short art film, influenced by surrealist, psychological cinema, rather than a traditional Heavy Metal performance video. It follows a nameless protagonist who walks the path of sin, whose soul is plagued by habitual scepticism and desires a way out of his anguish to reach a more meaningful, divine existence”
Vocalist Stephen John Tovey adds:
“When it came to choosing which track to represent our album with ‘…Daemons’ was the lead candidate. It is a tale of pride coming before a fall. It also unveils a central feeling throughout the world within ‘Our Father’; that Earth is in fact Hell, all while inspiring Lee’s paranoiac internalising of the themes from which he created the powerful visuals you see accompanying our potent anthem.”
