Horrorfuel.com got contacted earlier today by the band Darkness Visible. This Australian-based theater rock band are part of a segment of the horror world that I feel is far too underestimated and far too rarely recognized. I wrote an article a little bit ago about an Alice Cooper concert and how he was the godfather of horror-music: well, if Mr. Cooper is the godfather, he can certainly be proud of his Darkness Visible children.
Bassist David Black wants the world to know that his band is releasing their ninth music video and that this one is “a bit over the top.” The song is called Breaking Point. Tragically, I had not heard of this band yet so I did some research. I watched the other eight videos and they are truly mini horror movies with accompanying music to tell a tale of darkness. I loved them.
What I did wonder about is what “a bit over the top” meant. Well, according to Black’s press release:
“After 8 music videos, I decided that now was the time to pull out all the stops. This time it was no holds barred and take no prisoners! It’s a medical fetish Ozploitation video that has clowns with chainsaws, jelly wrestling in vomit, giant syringes being shoved up bums, dwarves with dildos, boobs, gimps and [more]! What more could a person want in a music video?”
Black talks about sinking all of his savings into making this video but that he “can’t guarantee that the video will stay up for long, but fingers crossed that they don’t pull it.”
If you are one of us waiting anxiously to see just what Black is teasing, you will find the video will be available in the next few weeks on youtube and their facebook site. https://www.facebook.com/BreakingPointVideo
