More information about the music video:
The “Nemesis’ Light Fading” video is the first video from ONHEIL’s latest album “Razor”, released by German Record Label CYCLONE EMPIRE and produced at the FINAL FOCUS studio by Bart Hennephof (Textures) and Yuma van Eekelen (Pestilence).
The storyline of the video shows a man slowly heading for his demise. This footage was shot by ONHEIL’s bandmember Amok for an movie project done together with part-time actor Dkarn Tserinth, who is working at the “Arts & Culture” department of the City of Rotterdam, The Netherlands.
Amok comments: ”Don’t expect a clean Hollywood production, this movie is raw and real. Beside that, the project is ‘no-budget’ anyway..”.
Although the movie is far from finished and currently on hold because of Amok’s activities with ONHEIL, including appearences at European Open Air festivals as PARTY.SAN, METAL MEAN and OCCULTFEST, some of the footage is already used for the music video as it fits the lyrical content of the song Nemesis’ Light Fading very well.
In the past, Dkarn Tserinth has appeared on some of ONHEIL’s previous releases as a guest vocalist and lyric writer. He also has cooperated with Amok on several music and video projects and they were part of the defunct underground metal radio station MISANTROPAGANDA.
The band footage was shot in an old, unused, electrical generating facility of one of Holland’s oldest cities Dordrecht. The dark atmosphere and black painted walls of the building is the perfect scenery for ONHEIL’s music.
Short band biography:
ONHEIL was originally founded in the autumn of 1999. A few successful demos led them to the recording of their first official release, ‘The Threat’. This mini-CD was released in 2003 by the now deceased WAR CRY PRODUCTIONS.
After some troubled years spend finding a decent drummer it was the beginning of 2007 when the current line-up was formed. This line-up contains 2 lead vocalists and 3 guitarists, giving them more possibilities to perfect their own ‘Blackened Thrash/Death Metal-sound’.
In 2008 a new record deal was inked with German recordlabel CYCLONE EMPIRE and spawned ONHEIL’s latest album “Razor” in May of 2009. It was very well received by both press and fans getting extremely positive reactions and mostly high ratings. Often “Razor” was seen as one of the best albums of the year, yet not getting the attention it deserved.
Onheil is currently preparing themselves for open air festivals shows, including PARTY.SAN, METAL MEAN and OCCULTFEST. After the summer the band will hit the road to play club shows throughout Europe.
