BLEEDING THROUGH: 'Love In Slow Motion' Video Posted Online

July 4, 2006

BLEEDING THROUGH's video for the song "Love in Slow Motion" has been posted online at this location. The clip, which was filmed last month in the California desert, continues the band's homage to gritty Americana horror. Directed by Zach Merck (SHADOWS FALL, CONVERGE) and Kevin Leonard (HIMSA, DIECAST),both the "Love In Slow Motion" video and BLEEDING THROUGH's clip for the song "Kill to Believe" are a loving tribute to the work of George Romero ("Night Of The Living Dead") and Tobe Hooper ("Texas Chainsaw Massacre"). Merck explains how he came up with the concept. "When we met with the band they explained that a number of their peers were going the rock & roll route with their music and getting more polished," he said. "With this album they were returning to a rawer and darker sound. I took that to mean instead of doing a bigger and glossier video that we return to the roots of the gritty and lo-fi horror movies that inspired us as kids."

The first video for "Kill To Believe" showed BLEEDING THROUGH vocalist Brandan Schieppati and his on-screen bride breaking down in front of an unusual diner that included patrons chained to their tables, Marta (keyboards) as a knife wielding psychotic waitress and hulking, sinister backwoods brothers. At the end of the video, Brandan, who was overpowered by the backwoods sadists, escaped from a box that was bound to be sunk to the bottom of the river. The final scene sees him gleaming two foot tire jack in hand going back into the diner to save his bride from the sinister clutches of the villains. Merck and Leonard have been hard at work trying to top the first video. New locations include the lair of the backwoods brothers and their torture chamber. The dungeon of death is replete with every "vile thing you can imagine," according to the two. "The idea we are going with this one is to make the film 'Hostel' look like a Disney movie," Leonard gleefully remarks.

BLEEDING THROUGH recently returned from a command performance at the Download festival in England and are currently co-headlining the second stage at Ozzfest.
