Sydney’s brutal Daemon Pyre have released a new video clip for the song Misanthropic Parallels. Their self-titled debut album was released to critical acclaim in 2015, and this song is one of the most played tracks off that album. Misanthropic Parallels has now been given a visual component with a stunning music video directed by Tim Grosse and James Lopes of Dusk Music Video Production.
Daemon Pyre frontman, Sam Rilatt says of the clip: Misanthropic Parallels is a dark story. A tale of a young misanthrope who is struggling to reconcile her hatred of what she has found the world of humanity to be against, the irony inherent that she shares the same air, walks the same earth, and is of the same species as all those people she loathes. That she really can’t be all that different from the people she despises. We wanted to use icy, stark visual tones to convey this idea and having Verna Mc Clune play our personification of Misanthropy was a real treat. Tim, James and the whole production team did a brilliant job and we think this video will showcase what Daemon Pyre has to offer the world of metal. We hope you like it!”
Daemon Pyre have spent much of 2015 touring their debut album, as well as completing a headline tour of Indonesia. Constantly on the move, the band have completed countless tours as headliners and often supporting international acts. A European tour is on the cards in 2016. If you want to see what all the fuss is about, you can catch Daemon Pyre in Sydney at the Bald Faced Stag on 27 February with Truth Corroded.
