Official press release:

Boston, MA's Ice Nine Kills has set out to shock fans with the release of the music video for new single "Communion Of The Cursed." Inspired by the terrifying story of William Peter Blatty's The Exorcist, Ice Nine Kills spared no detail in re-creating the theatrical thriller with their own metal flare. The single comes ahead of the December 4th release of Every Trick In The Book, now available for pre-order with exclusive bundle options at IceNineKills.com. Fans who pre-order the album will receive an instant download of tracks "Communion Of The Cursed," "Bloodbath & Beyond," and "Me Myself & Hyde."

"William Peter Blatty's 1971 classic novel, The Exorcist, tells the horrifying story of the possession of a 12 year old girl by the devil himself. It's adaptation to the big screen in 1973 terrified audiences all over the world and is widely considered to be the scariest film of all time. We wanted our song and video for 'Communion Of The Cursed' to pay a respectful homage to this brilliantly twisted story and to hopefully help expose people to this literary gem which has stood the test of time. We set out to make this video really feel like a horror film by adding an opening and closing that stands alone from the song. The actors and directors involved in the project brought my vision to life in the most elegant way possible. I couldn't be more thrilled for people to experience this next chapter."
