Decrepit Birth recently shot a video clip for the song 'The Resonance'. The clip was directed by former VJ/producer for MTV Norway's Headbangers Ball, Ann Christin "Anki" Rihm. Photos from the video shoot can be viewed here.
"We shot our first video last week for ‘The Resonance,'" commented the band. "We had a blast shooting late into the night, deep in the dark of the Mojave desert! The director Anki, had a great vision of what she wanted to do. We had a chance to preview some of the footage, and we couldn't be more pleased with what we saw! It was about time for us to do a video and we are glad we had such awesome conditions to shoot our first. Get ready!"
Ann Christin "Anki" Rihm added: "Decrepit Birth is no ordinary death metal band and my goal was to capture that. I chose to build the set in an as natural environment/setting as possible and put much effort into how to light the set to give the video the exact look and feeling I wanted. My main focus was to make it seem as organic and natural as possible but keeping an developing change that turns into a very massive final look. The video was shot for 12 hours straight in the desert 3 hours outside LA. The guys were incredibly easy to work with and we had so much fun and a very good time making this video!”
Drums for Polarity were recorded at Sharkbite Studios (EXODUS) with producer Zack Ohren (ALL SHALL PERISH, SUFFOCATION, IMMOLATION) while all other tracking was handled by Matt Sotelo before being mixed by Ohren at CastleUltimate Studios.
Guitarist Matt Sotelo commented on the new material as well as their being added to this years Summer Slaughter tour: "Polarity is a musical odyssey into the mind and soul, covering many different emotions. This album really fuses together where we are as musicians, by combining melody and brutality on a new level. We are also very proud to be part of the Summer Slaughter tour for the second time in a row! Get ready to be pummeled by some of the best bands in extreme music!"
