Behind-the-scenes footage from the making of “I’ve Been You”, the new video from Danish modern metallers MNEMIC, can be seen below. The clip was helmed by Swedish director Patric Ullaeus of the Revolver Film Company AB (IN FLAMES, DIMMU BORGIR, EUROPE) in Gothenburg, Sweden.
Commented MNEMIC guitarist Mircea Gabriel Eftemie: “[Patric] did most of our videos, and each and every one has been outstanding to us. This time around [we shot] the video in an old factory (surprise surprise), to create a cold harsh uncompromising type of atmosphere that won’t even melt such a warm melodic song as ‘I’ve Been You’.”
“I’ve Been You” comes off MNEMIC‘s fifth album, “Mnemesis”, which was released on June 8 in Europe, and on June 19 in North America via Nuclear Blast Records. The CD landed at position No. 38 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.
“Mnemesis” was recorded at Antfarm studios in Aabyhøj, Denmark with longtime producer Tue Madsen (THE HAUNTED, HIMSA, SICK OF IT ALL). The cover artwork was created by Metastazis (MORBID ANGEL, THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, PARADISE LOST, ULVER) and can be seen below.
MNEMIC last year parted ways with drummer Brian “Brylle” Rasmussen and guitarist Rune Stigart and replaced them with Brian Larsen and Victor-Ray Salomonsen, respectively.
