ABYSMAL DAWN Drummer's New Project ANNIHILATED Music Video Makes Seizure Inducing History
November 19, 2012, 2 years ago
Los Angeles based death metallers, ANNIHILATED, released a new music video over the weekend for 'Injected'. The video was directed by Matt Zane (SOCIETY 1) who is no stranger to pushing the envelope, on stage and off. Zane has directed videos for WAYNE STATIC and recently the regrouped ORGY stated, "I wanted to make a video that followed the speed and intensity of death metal. It always seemed to me that most death metal videos were edited too slow for the music."
The finished product is a seizure inducing music video with 4,508 cuts in just under 4 minutes. The video took just 12 hours to shoot, but another "7 days total to edit" according to Zane. "It wasn't difficult keeping up with the kick drum just time consuming. Being in sync with all the stops and drum patterns was more challenging. It's crazy to think that in certain parts of the video almost 100 images are passing every 4 seconds. The band asked if we should issue a warning for people who are prone to seizures."
