"Death Comes To The Sleeping", the new video from Danish heavy rockers HELHORSE, can be seen below. The clip was directed by Rasmus G. Sejersen of THE PSYKE PROJECT, who has previously worked with EMMURE, NASUM, THE CHARIOT and THE KANDIDATE.
"Death Comes To The Sleeping" comes off HELHORSE's sophomore album, "Oh, Death", which was recorded this past summer at Grapehouse Studios in Copenhagen and was produced, mixed and mastered by Emil Buus Saur. According to a press release, the CD "shows a band that is intensely focused, brimming with self-confidence, but at the same time are not afraid to show vulnerability, ferocity and enormous love for music. "
Lyrically, "Oh, Death" is a concept album circling around the theme of death. However, it is not death in a normal "metal" interpretation with fire and brimstone. The focus is death as catharsis. It is about cleansing the things that drag you down; the impossible expectations, dying love, the warped idea of perfection and to celebrate our mistakes and shortcomings, because they are the ones that create life and give us an identity.Therefore, the CD was given the title "Oh, Death", taken from the poem "Oh, Death", an old Appalachian Mountain funeral dirge that beautifully describes death in all its complexity.
Regarding the "Death Comes To The Sleeping" video, HELHORSE vocalist Mikkel Wad Larsen said: "Just like our new album, we wanted our visual expression to be more direct, honest and show the band where it's best — LIVE!
"We are blown away by Rasmus's work and the way he taps into the very core of the band is simply amazing."
"Oh, Death" is tentatively due in the spring.
