Today, East Scotland metal groove titans, Dog Tired, unveiled their brand new video, for Lord Of The Vile. Based roughly on John Carpenter’s Prince Of Darkness, it is their second tribute to the film icon, following Outpost 31, which related to 1982’s The Thing.

Although it was originally intended as part of the build up to this year’s Bloodstock, the fates had something else in mind. The band decided to forge ahead, and, after some brain-melting, online editing sessions (via Zoom) with it’s director, Alan Swan, release it anyway, offering some much needed relief in the current crisis.

Dog Tired guitarist, Luke James, enthused gratefully “We had the helping hand of a bunch of extras coming down on the day. They were the best extras ever. They hammered cans, acted when needed and were awesome folks to have involved with the video.”

They set out with a strong mission for the video, and it sounds like, with a little help, it all came together as they wanted:

The idea from the start was clear. We wanted to have a more horror theme with this one. After many planning and drinking sessions with Alan, we came up with the plan, and short storyboard of drawn squiggles.  I think we achieved our goal of creating a heavy metal music video thats dark, ominous, and evil.
