"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 — will premiere this Saturday night, August 29 on MTV2's "Headbangers Ball" at 2:00 a.m. ET/PT. 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!"
