The reigning kings of technical, historically-themed brutality, NILE, have uploaded a making-of “Enduring The Eternal Molestation Of Flame” video here:
Watch as the group provides a behind-the-scenes impression of last year’s intense video shoot in Greece. The clip was directed by Jon Simvonis (SEPTIC FLESH, DEVIL’S TRAIN – click here) and the track is taken from NILE’s latest release At The Gate Of Sethu.
“Filming NILE, a band with such a strong connection and retrospection to the Ancient Egyptian spirit, was really a creative challenge,” recalls Simvonis. “I found myself almost traveling in time and space through the whole research process prior to making the video. All of our production and creative department teams, within MAGNUM PRODUCTION STUDIOS Co. were really excited to take on this project and bring it to life. Approaching Ancient Egypt, through Africa and using Nubia, a region along the Nile river, was for me the perfect marriage of Egyptian iconic imagery and the regions long religious history. A region that dealt in the underworld and was also the birthplace of the very first Voodoo practices. Two worlds so close, but yet so far one from another.”
