Alt-metallers As I May give us a big, catchy groove heavy hard rock tune today with “Traitor” and the song’s official video below. The Finnish band recall early Filter, Korn and even some Load-era Metallica on this Nu-anced and gnarly Nu-mber.
“Traitor” is accompanied by a colorful performance video to enhance the listening experience. You will want to jump up and down but also probably will experience too much neon-induced vertigo.
Directed by Kimmo Pulliainen, the music video for “Traitor” was shot at As I May’s rehearsal place, which is an old military bomb shelter. The band’s concept was to have cyberpunk feeling to compliment the use of synth on the single. Starring in the video as the character of “Milana” is band friend Leevis along with all the light work and atmosphere planned by the band’s own light engineer Mikko Harju.
