Desecration Premiere New Video ‘Coffin Smasher’ Exclusively With Terrorizer

By on 30 May 2014


Death metal heroes Desecration have joined forces with Terrorizer for an exclusive premiere of their first ever music video ‘Coffin Smasher’, a choice cut from their forthcoming album ‘Cemetery Sickness’…

Since forming back in 1992, Desecration have become a mainstay of the UK metal scene; if it’s no-bullshit, riff laden death metal you’re after, then you can always rely on this furious power trio to deliver the goods. It’s been unnervingly quiet on the Desecration front since the release of the seventh full-length ‘Forensix’ in 2008, whilst guitarist/vocalist Ollie Jones toured and released music with both Extreme Noise Terror and Amputated, but now the band are firmly back in action and ready to release their new album ‘Cemetery Sickness’ this June.

So why have the band never gotten round to releasing a music video before? We’ll let the band themselves field that one:

“We’ve thought about doing videos for songs in the past. We’ve sat down with people to bounce ideas across for storylines etc. but they’ve never amounted to anything. This time we knew it had to happen with everything being online these days. So we collared Adam Edgerley (drummer Mic and ‘Cemetery Sickness’ producer Joe Thompsons partners at Sonic Forge). We knew Adam would do a fantastic job, and also remain patient while we threw more and more challenging ideas at him. Fair play, we couldn’t be happier with how it came out.

“We chose this song for the video because every time we played it in the rehearsal rooms we knew it was a corker. The lyrical content meant that it was easy enough to think of a narrative for the video too, and we thought it was achievable whilst also being pretty daring.

“The indoor performance shots were recorded in a church that our friend Chi from Spider Kitten owns up in the valleys, and the outdoor scenes we filmed… locally. I don’t want to say much more there, as let’s just say we weren’t supposed to be there.

“Shooting the video was exactly how you would expect digging a 6 foot hole in the pissing rain at night would be. We didn’t want to cut any corners, so everything you see on the video actually happened.”

‘Cemetery Sickness’ is due to be released on June 26th via Metal Age Productions.
