Midwestern trio CHROME WAVES - containing former members of Wolvhammer, Nachtmystium, Abigail Williams, The Gates Of Slumber, Amiensus, and more - delivers a new video from their newly-unleashed debut LP, the harrowing A Grief Observed. Following the album's release through Disorder Recordings earlier this month.
CHROME WAVES' A Grief Observed sees the outfit making its return with a new lineup, taking the outfit from a side project to a full-time act. With six dense, mid-paced tracks, the dynamic album weaves through a myriad of sounds and styles, coalescing the members' influences from black metal, doom, post/alt-metal, dark pop, and more. A Grief Observed was engineered by Niko Albanese with the band's James Benson and Jeff Wilson, finished with artwork by Wilson.
The video for 'Open Casket" was filmed and directed by David Brenner in the grim spirit of the song. Wilson offers of the song, "This song and video is for the handful of people that have followed the records I've done for the last ten or so years. From Blackbird to Nachtmystium's, 'Every Last Drop' to Wolvhammer's, 'A Light That Doesn't Yield'; myself and others seem to have been fans of a somber closer. 'Open Casket' is a little different as the ending is a little more frantic, more chaotic and completely bipolar. Dave has been doing videos that express exactly those thoughts and images and it works perfectly the visual theme of the album and for this song."
