The video for (a cover of Marilyn Manson’s) “In the Shadow of the Valley of Death” was released on YouTube today at 1:00 p.m. (CET)! This is Deus Ex Lumina’s first video to be released that states: “The mystery has been revealed! Here we are in the flesh and we are dark.”. I really enjoyed working on the video because we are on the same wave-length when it comes to the style and feel for DEL. The concept and look for the video were easily agreed upon which made it easy for Don MacTavish to be behind the camera directing the shoot. Don really enjoyed the editing process and applying the post-production effects to enhance the overall feel for the video (Don also remixed and remastered the track specifically for the video’s release). I really hope you all enjoy this video and future releases from DEL.
I have been extremely busy in the city of Berlin. A few months ago I began working with the dark wave band extraordinaire Deus Ex Lumina. I have to say working with DEL has been amazing. I had the pleasure of contributing ethereal backing vocals and a heavy/gothic guitar riff on their latest release (a cover of Marilyn Manson’s) “In the Valley of the Shadow of Death”. The combination of his dark vocals, layers of synths and my ethereal backing vocals gave this track a haunting sound. For the release there is a fantastic video:
