Mike of BrooklynRocks recently conducted an interview with guitarist John Li of the Tampa, Florida-based extreme metal act ORDER OF ENNEAD. The chat is now available for viewing below.
"The Concept of Our Extinction", the new video from ORDER OF ENNEAD, can be viewed below.
Vocalist/guitarist Kevin Quirion and his company, Advanced Media, wanted to do "something fresher than the typical performance video where band members appear for the sole purpose of looking grim."
Commented Kevin: "The idea of the video follows the concept of the album — our want to prevent the inevitable end, but being unable to do so. We could have simply done a band performance video, but I'm tired of watching them and sick of videos that have nothing to do with the song. That's what a video is about anyway, the song.
"With actors, its easy for people to whine about the final product.
"For a shoestring budget, it turned out great, and if you don't like it, then we'll all be dead soon anyway."
"The Concept of Our Extinction" comes off ORDER OF ENNEAD's latest album, "An Examination Of Being", which was recorded at Audiohammer Studios in Sanford, Florida with producer Mark Lewis (TRIVIUM, CHIMAIRA, ALL THAT REMAINS).
