Behind The Scenes Shoot: The Defiled – As I Drown Video

A couple of months back, Adam over at Video Ink got in contact by chance. The guys were shooting a video with the guys of The Defiled. They required some stills to be taken and asked if I was available. Of course I said yes and made myself available!

To be honest, I hadn’t heard of their music prior to Adam mentioning them. I’d lost touch with the metal scene a while ago. ( This has of course changed since doing the shoot 😉 )

It was fucking awesome. It was cold, freezing cold to the point where we couldn’t feel our hands or feet. But it was awesome. The location the guys had scouted was beau.

We met at base around 8am or so and didn’t wrap up until 9pm or so. It’s pretty standard, long days are a given on a shoot, video or photo!

The guys of The Defiled were great to work with and a HUGE thanks to the guys over at Video Ink for having me on board this shoot. If your on the look out for a music video production, get in contact with them!

The boys of The Defiled are touring with Motionless In White in the UK – Tour kicks off this Friday the 13th – Check out their schedule and catch them on tour here.

Released through Metal Hammer UKImpericon.de in Germany and Alternative Press in the US, check out the video below!
