Facing The Gallows Release Video For Tides Of Terror

Today sees the release Tides of Terror the first single and video from Johannesburg’s Facing The Gallows. Taken from their forthcoming new album Dead Mindset which is due for release on the 20th February 2018.

Directed and edited by guitarist Chase Benyon the video was shot on location in Melville in a friend’s empty space. The D.O.P  was Mike Bell from Capitol Collective.

“We didn’t have a concept like filth.  We wanted to broaden our music videos and not rely on a story in every one of them to present the music.

We went for a simple band performance video. No bells no whistles. Just the song and the band rocking out. With the other videos that will be released in the future having a band performance video felt right on the list of band things to do.” Facing The Gallows

Name is Austin, peeps call me Austinrock. I like to interact with bands. You DO NOT have my permission to utilize any of my profile information nor any of the content contained here \m/{*¿*}\m/ ...THERE...OK. I'm a huge Melodeath metal fan. I'm proud to be a METALHEAD. Metal isn't for everybody, it's for the chosen few. Most friends I have tell me they don't understand why I like metal, that it is too much noise. They just going to have to listen beyond the noise and the truth is they don't have to figure it out, it is either in you or it isn't. Metal is my morning coffee and it's my night sleeping pills...
