DIRGE WITHIN: 'Forever The Martyr' Video Released

"Forever the Martyr", the new video from DIRGE WITHIN (formerly DIRGE) — the new metal band featuring ex-SOIL guitarist Shaun Glass, drummer James Knight (ex-THE BLANK THEORY, CHACOPA), vocalist Jeremy "Jerms" Genske, bassist Brian Paz and guitarist Matt Szlachta — can be viewed below. (Note: Video stream may not be available to some non-U.S. residents.) The clip was filmed in Charlotte, North Carolina with director Ramon Boutviseth (TRIVIUM, INCUBUS).

Commented Glass: "We're so happy with the end result of the video for 'Forever the Martyr'. Ramon did an amazing job, showing both the soldier's side as well as the band's intensity blended into one. Fans finally get too see a taste of what were about in the visual stance!"

"Forever the Martyr" comes off DIRGE WITHIN's debut album, "Force Fed Lies", which is scheduled for release on September 1 via E1 Music (formerly Koch Records). The CD was mixed by Jeff Rose and Martin "Ginge" Ford of Nott-In-Pill studios in Newport, Wales, United Kingdom. Edsel Dope (DOPE) produced the effort alongside Chris Djuricic (Studio One). The album will feature guest appearances by Corey Beaulieu of TRIVUM and Michael Angelo Batio of NITRO fame.
