REDEMPTION — the Los Angeles-based progressive metal band led by guitarist/songwriter Nicolas van Dyk and featuring vocal legend Ray Alder of FATES WARNING — has finished filming a video for the song "Bleed Me Dry".Commented Nicolas van Dyk: "The video was directed by Marcos Efron, an extremely talented up-and-coming director known for his with on videos (including one for the artist JEWEL) and short films, with Chris Johnson as director of photography. "The video mixes stylized shots of the band performing (like the silhouette of Bernie shown below) with conceptual footage of a woman attempting to break free of her bonds and escape a prison-like existence." Check out a couple of photos from the video shoot at this location. REDEMPTION released its third CD, "The Origins of Ruin", on April 3 via Inside Out Music. The CD follows up 2005's breakthrough release "The Fullness of Time", the band's first with FATES WARNING frontman Ray Alder, which generated tremendous critical and popular acclaim. With Bernie Versailles (guitars, AGENT STEEL), Chris Quirarte (drums, PRYMARY) and new bass player Sean Andrews (who performed on Henning Pauly's CHAIN project), REDEMPTION is one of the most prominent up-and-coming progressive metal bands.
