“Child Of War”, the new video from classic southern California power/speed metalists HERETIC, can be seen below. The clip was shot and directed by Metal Refuge TV‘s FreddyMedal (a.k.a. Fred Swift of DOWN HEAVAL/AUGMENTED).
“Child Of War” comes of HERETIC‘s latest album, “A Time Of Crisis”, which was released last July via Metal On Metal Records. The band is currently working on the follow-up effort, which will feature such new tracks as “Demonize” and “Quick Sand”.
HERETIC, formed in 1985 in Los Angeles, California, released an EP, “Torture Knows No Boundary” (1986), and a full-length, “Breaking Point” (1988), through Metal Blade Records before disbanding. Later on the founding member, songwriter and guitarist Brian Korban together with bassist Dennis O’Hara formed REVEREND, which featured the vocal talents of the late David Wayne (METAL CHURCH).
In 2011 Brian Korban reformed the band, recruiting Julian Mendez, the vocalist who sang on the band’s first EP. Soon they were joined by the seasoned musicians, long-time friends and collaborators, guitarist Glenn Rogers (VIKING, ex-HIRAX, ex-DELIVERANCE, ex-STEEL VENGEANCE and others) and bassist Angelo Espino (BITCH, ex-REVEREND, ex-HIRAX, ex-ANGER AS ART, ex-UNCLE SLAM and others) and a young, but talented drummer Ignazio Coppola.
HERETIC recorded its first-ever live DVD on August 25, 2012 at Malone’s in Santa Ana, California.
