MALACODA - Releases New Music Video

Set to release their new EP titled Ritualis Aeterna on 2nd December, Canadian horror inspired symphonic power/gothic metallers Malacoda have unleashed their new music video for their first single "Penny Dreadful" that was directed, produced and edited by The Laundry Design Works. The track/music video "Penny Dreadful" was inspired by the since canceled Showtime TV show by the same name. Gothic horror literary classics (Dracula, Dorian Grey, Frankenstein, etc.) all cross paths within the same gloomy Victorian London and struggle with their cursed existence. The song explores the themes of the show, each section of the song being a different character's personal struggles. Just as the show paid homage to horror's roots, the band's music video pays respects to classic horror films, using only practical effects to achieve everything from the dark corruption of the blood in the veins of the possessed woman, to the sped up and jerky motions the band members display as the song crescendos.
The band comments about the video: "The "Penny Dreadful" video is something the band has wanted to do for a long time. Being involved with everything from the script, storyboard and even the production of the story scenes was great and let us guide where we wanted the video to go. Our upcoming EP release is a healthy dosage of things to come, we are just merely dipping our toes into a murky pool filled with horror and grandiosity and we hope our listeners take the plunge with us as we dive deeper into these darker areas."
