Connecticut metallers SACRED OATH are wrapping up production on their latest music video, "Meet Your Maker". The single is a highlight from the "World On Fire" album which was released in November.
"Meet Your Maker" is the first live-action music video filmed by SACRED OATH since the band's last clip, "Counting Zeros", premiered on MTV2's "Headbangers Ball" on Memorial Weekend 2009. Production began on Friday, May 13 on location in the haunted forest on singer Rob Thorne's estate in Connecticut and included aerial fire dancers and a "whole lot of smoke," according to Rob. "This video was the most fun yet. It was great to work with Kristen [Powers, director] again. I think if I hadn't been a musician, I would have loved directing."
Kristen Powers directed the first two videos from SACRED OATH "Words Upon the Stone" and "Counting Zeros" for her production company at Starr Ridge Studios in New York. This is Rob's first co-directing effort.
A release date has not yet been announced.
According to a press release, the "World On Fire" lyrical content is based on "Dune", the '60s sci-fi best seller by Frank Herbert. The effort marks a return to the concept-album format for the band, whose conceptual debut, "A Crystal Vision" (1988), went on to become a cult power metal classic.
