Savage Messiah recently released their new video, for the track 'Hellblazer', starring Game Of Thrones actress Pixie Le Knot.
With eye-watering riffs, lung-busting vocals and fist-in-the-air fearsomeness, 'Hellblazer' tells a tale of power, religion and corrupted innocence through an ancient Illuminati ritual. The music video was filmed with director Tom Walsh (BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE, PENDULUM) and features a mesmerising performance from famed London contortionist Pixie Le Knot (Game Of Thrones Season 3, The Devil Inside).
Extra cameras were on hand throughout the video shoot to capture all of the action, including interviews with the band and exclusive behind-the-scenes footage. Watch the video and the behind the scenes footage below:
Savage Messiah will release The Fateful Dark on March 10th in Europe via Earache Records and on March 18th in North America via Century Media/Earache Records.
The band have secured a deal with Trooper Entertainment for the Japanese release on March 12th.
Listen to 'Minority Of One' below:
Dave Silver comments: "The title for this song comes from a famous saying by Ghandi, who said that even if you're in a minority of one, the truth is the truth. Which is a good message to people about breaking the mould and not getting sucked into 'group think' mentality. Standing up for what's objectively right and not compromising for the sake of social acceptance. Musically, this is my favourite Savage Messiah track ever; we've managed to marry the thrash and heavy metal elements into a cohesive track, which is catchy and melodic, but still fast and thrashy. Enjoy!"

The Fateful Dark, the follow-up to 2012's Plague Of Conscience, was recorded at Grindstone Studios in Suffolk, England with producer Scott Atkins (AMON AMARTH, SYLOSIS, BEHEMOTH) and features artwork created by Peter Sallai (SABATON).
