Paradise Lost have released a music video for their new track “Beneath Broken Earth”. The clip premiered over at Decibel, but you can stream it above. The band’s guitarist Greg Mackintosh spoke of the video saying:
“I fucking hate metal band performance videos, so when I got told that we needed to do one I was obviously annoyed but then came the idea to do a performance video of utter misery. The slowest song we have ever recorded. ‘Beneath Broken Earth‘ is an utterly old school Paradise Lost doom/death song, and doing a performance video with our miserable, old faces barely moving in a crappy, old basement was too much to resist. The director Ash has done a great job of capturing the somber mood and has managed to make a performance video we can actually be proud of.”
The track is taken from the band’s forthcoming studio effort The Plague Within, in stores June 1st in Europe and June 2nd in the U.S. through Century Media Records. Pre-order the album now via the label here.
