California blackened death lords GORESKINCOFFIN have released the official music video for “It Will Not Die“, taken from the band’s new album Release My Suffering. You can check out the new video below.
Filmed in the depths of Mendocino, CA, “It Will Not Die” is the band’s first visual depiction of lyrical content. Footage was shot at a location known as a popular Satanic ritual site in the 1970s. The song’s lyrics deal with substance abuse, chemical dependency, depression, and suicide. The video was done by Scotland-based Obscenery Films (Dee Snider, Misery Index, Cattle Decapitation).
Release My Suffering was recorded and mixed by Hunter Peterson at Desidarius Recordings. Keyboards and Orchestra performed by Lou Kelley. Album artwork by Chadwick St. John.
Originally formed in 2011 from the ashes of other local death metal groups, GORESKINCOFFIN started as a three-piece featuring Dean Rice (drums), Dustin Stark (guitar/vocals), and Justice Reckis (bass). The trio wrote and released their debut album, Corpse Filled Caskets, that same year. The album drew influences from black and death metal bands, both classic and modern.
Following a six-year hiatus, GORESKINCOFFIN returned with the addition of Cody Winter on vocals. The band released their second full-length, Shattered Conceptions Ov Reality, in 2017. Guitarist Randy Hoofard joined the fold shortly thereafter. In 2018, the band released the Cursed Paths EP.
GORESKINCOFFIN then amicably parted ways with Hoofard, a move that saw Reckis pick up guitar duties and the addition of new bassist Edgar Castro-Salazar. The newly invigorated lineup released the “Wrath and Ruin” single in 2021 before going to work on their newest burnt offering, Release My Suffering.
