US metallers GRAVESHADOW have released a music video for “Namesake“, the track is taken from their debut album, “Nocturnal Resurrection“, due to be released in Europe on November 13th, followed by a North American release on December 13th via Mausoleum Records. The video was produced and directed by: Ethan Parilla @ Atrocious Works and can be seen below.
Will Walker (Rhythm Guitar): “We thought “Namesake” was the prefect track to do a video for. We kick off all our shows with it and it’s the first track on the album. It’s got a great mix of the heavy and symphonic elements in our music, so it really was the natural choice. Working with Ethan of Atrocious Works was awesome, he really helped us bring the video to life, very professional and easy to work with”.
“Nocturnal Resurrection“ was produced by Matt “Hazmatt” Thomas (Fallrise) and mixed/mastered by Emil “Nightmare” Nodtveidt (Deathstars). Adding to this, powerhouse vocalist, Ralf Scheepers of Primal Fear, was brought in to sing guest vocals on the Doctor Who inspired song ‘Blink‘.
The GRAVESHADOW sound is defined by crushing guitars, soaring keyboard melodies, thundering bass, and earth shattering drums. Powerful operatic vocals shift into unearthly growls to create a rich and dynamic atmosphere that is ripe for storytelling. Whether it is a tale of personal struggle or of fantastical creatures, the listeners are sure to find themselves immersed in a world apart.
