Official press release:
British death metal powerhouse Venom Prison are excited to share their new video for "Corrode The Black Sun," based on World War II, exclusively via Metal Hammer UK here.
Taken from their debut album Animus, the video depicts the band playing in an abandoned house while a woman peels her skin away. "The idea behind the is about tearing away and shedding skin to become a new and better person," explains vocalist Larissa Stupar. "I was always fascinated with the fact that the Nazis were able to kill over six million people with the use of stationary facilities built exclusively for the purpose of mass extermination, while a whole nation categorically denied knowledge of the atrocities that were committed."
"Growing up in Germany, I have learned that people have trouble recognising that every cog and social issue had a part to play to some extent. It is a difficult reconciliation with the concept of collective guilt, but closing our eyes to the hands of psychopaths committing horrific mass crimes makes all of us responsible," says Stupar. "The ideals of fascism have been part of human history throughout. You see the same kind of lunatics marching with torches through German streets, the KKK is still performing their idiotic rituals yet the world still chooses to close its eyes while hate crimes are being committed."
Directed by Daniel Waverley Gray, you can stream the video below now.
