Gothenburg, Sweden’s Despite has officially premiered a new music video for ‘As You Bleed’. The video was directed by Despite vocalist Peter Tuthill and filmed in their hometown, Gothenburg, Sweden. ‘As You Bleed’ is the first single from their upcoming album, ‘Synergi’ which will be released worldwide via Eclipse Records on July 22, 2016. Synergi contains thirteen powerful songs of progressive, melodic death metal produced by Oscar Nilsson (Engel) at Crehate Studios. Video can be seen below.
“I’m not big on sports myself, but mixed martial arts is one of the few I genuinely like to watch” states vocalist Peter Tuthill. “As You Bleed was actually inspired by a UFC match I was watching one night. I can’t relate to violence, and it’s not how I see solving any problems, but as long as it’s inside an octagon, I’m all for it.” Despite features three guitarists, each playing technically-crushing riffs on eight-stringed Schecter guitars tuned a full octave below standard guitar tuning (drop-e).
The album is already available for pre-order via iTunes and Amazon. Either option comes with the songs “As You Bleed” and “Time Lapse” as instant grat tracks! The album is also available via Google Play. Additional options and information about Synergi will be forthcoming at Eclipse Records.
