Shatterface, release lyric video for “Sand And Blood”

Following the successful release of their single Eternal Nothing, Sydney digital death metallers Shatterface are looking to see out 2023 with unyielding intention.

Today they released the lyric video for Sand And Blood, the song that closes their recently released E.P Anodize.

The band says “The video is an independent production using carefully sourced visual assets chosen specifically on their metaphorical merits.” It was edited by the members of Shatterface and features familiar digital elements that are the signature of the band’s visual style, but there are also features that will be new to fans.

“The palette and colouring of the scenes are well thought out and deliberately chosen,” explains vocalist, Rob. “Cold images of industrial technology and dystopian breakdown are shown in monochrome which transposes back into vibrant colour gain warmth once we see the first human survivor walk into frame.”

Shatterface had a calculated vision to create a universe in the sci-fi spectrum of fiction and carefully placed the video’s images in line with the context of Sand And Blood’s lyrics to build intrigue and deliver a full scale product on a limited budget.

Lyrically, Sand And Blood tells the tale of war within ourselves, as the fight and clash manifests into the form of a larger, external enemy.

“Viewers with a keen eye will see that rather than depicting real soldiers, the people fighting (in the video) are in fact toy soldiers,” the band divulges, “This is a deliberate statement about the futility of such conflict and a message about the perspective and scale of one’s fight or flight instinct.”

Guitarist Tim says “With this clip we really got to show some of the ‘Shatterface future according to Anodize’. The imagery here is pretty much a bit of everything this band is about.”

Bassist, James, adds, “Sand And Blood has become everything I wanted it to be. The video couldn’t have fitted the song’s message any better.”
