Brazilian death metallers Krisiun have premiered the music video for their song “The Will To Potency” and you can check it out right here. The song is off the band’s latest studio album, The Great Execution.
The director and producer of the video, Tommy Jones, had this to say:
“The band had originally contacted me to do a live video on the ‘Conquerors of the World Tour’. We filmed every night live, however the day before the last show of the tour, we had a day off on a drive through New Mexico towards the last show in Texas. I had the idea of filming the band out in the middle of the desert because I love that area and always wanted to do a desert shoot. So I convinced the driver to pull over in the middle of nowhere at 9AM. We filmed for about 2 and a half hours out there, using a laptop as audio playback. We caught the attention of the Mexican Border Patrol who came to check out what we were doing. They sent about 3 SUVs out to check us out. Once they made sure we weren’t doing anything ‘too illegal’ they got a kick out of it and were taking pictures on their iPhones because they said in all their years, they haven’t seen a band set up in the middle of the desert.
When it was all said and done, we filmed every night on tour, but it ended up that the majority of the video was filmed on that day off in the middle of the New Mexican desert in about 2.5 hours.
It was a fun video, and I’m glad we got to do it this way, we all are really stoked how the desert stuff came out.”
