Polish extreme metallers HATE have finished filming a video for the song “Erebos” with the Warsaw-based Agency Moderna and visual art group Suka Off, who are well known for their performances and film art activities. The entire clip, which will make its online debut in September, was shot at club M25 in Warsaw, famous for its post-industrial atmosphere.
Commented HATE mainman ATF Sinner: “We’ve managed to gather a great group of people consisting of Moderna Agency and Suka Off to work on this video. It’s a dark, apocalyptic vision of humanity showing its downfall, moral and biological degradation. In the script we used lots of metaphors and symbolism; some of it is based on classical Ancient Greek tragedies. We tried to capture the destructive mechanisms of human nature and show the basic instincts in man getting out of control. The main figure in the clip is Erebos — embodiment of Darkness dominating the human psyche and actions. Our goal was to make a video on a high artistic level, avoiding clichés and all those accessories usually associated with metal clips.”
A still from the video can be seen below.
“Erebos” is the title track of HATE‘s latest album, which came out last year via Listenable Records. The CD was recorded at Hertz Studio in Bialystok, Poland with producers Slawek and Wojtek Wieslawski (DECAPITATED, VADER).
“Erebos”, which comes from ancient Greek and means literally “deep darkness” or shadow, contains ten new songs, which are said to be a fusion of blackened death metal, industrial and ambient sounds, deathcore and heavy metal.
