Fresh death metal this Friday
Hollow World have released the official video for their new single "Defiling Paradise".
The single, premiered on triple j's THE RACKET, and will be available to the world on November 25th in all online stores.
The 'Defiling Paradise' clip was directed by Miki Simankevicious, Shot by Cameron Zayec and Edited by Aaron Carroll and was shot in a private blue stone quarry in Avalon, VIC.
This single is the first sample of the album, which explores the themes of humans' destruction of the world's natural resources.
Theo Goslett, guitarist in the band, said, "We set out to make the clip a visual reflection of the themes of filth and decay that the lyrics explore.
"As the song is about man taking something beautiful and destroying it in the name of greed - we wanted the visual representation of the track to represent us in a similar manner.
"It was shot in that disjointed way because we thought it added to the creepiness of the lyrical themes"
'Defiling Paradise' was recorded with Systematic Productions' Ermin Hamidovic, along with the rest of the forthcoming album.
Vocalist Ben Roberts was forthright about the meaning behind the new single 'Defiling Paradise' and the imagery behind the name and themes of the brutal track.
"Defiling Paradise is about the transition of human thought from being part of nature to being above it. It's about how once we began to develop into civilized societies, we inherently lost touch with how much we actually rely on the natural environment for our existence," he said.
Hollow World has shared the stage with Plini, At The Gates, Ne Obliviscaris, Psycroptic, King Parrot, Be'lakor, Boris the Blade, Make Them Suffer, Bleeding Through, Frankenbok and ROME.
Hollow World's single Defiling Paradise will be available in all good online outlets from November 25th and tickets are on sale now for their single launch show November 18th at Worker's Club in Melbourne at Oztix.
