NEURAXIS checks in about “Darkness Prevails” video shoot

Montreal’s NEURAXIS have completed the shooting for the “Darkness Prevails” video from the band’s most recent release, ‘The Thin Line Between.’ Helmed by director Chris Alsop, the clip is currently being edited, and will be available online and at video outlets shortly to coincide with NEURAXIS’ participation on the upcoming North American tour with The Faceless, Abigail Williams, Decrepit Birth, and Veil of Maya. Photos from the video shoot are available at http://prostheticrecords.com/neuraxissplash.html.

“Working with Chris for the video has been an amazing experience,” says NEURAXIS frontman Alex Leblanc. “He is very passionate about what he does and made us feel comfortable during the whole shoot. It was our first video so we decided to go for something simple, but added a little twist to it. We worked on the lighting to give it a special vibe, and the whole goal was basically to put a face to our music…”

“The great thing about working with Neuraxis was that these guys showed up, ready to go and were totally focused on making a wicked video,” Alsop adds. “And that really comes through in the performance. It was a blast to work with them. As a director, it helps when the band understands the process of a production. I worked really closely with the band in coming up with a concept. The idea was to work off the title of the song, to really play up the blacks with slashes of red, very low key lighting, and then contrast that with a Sin City-inspired look which still retains that dark edge.”

Most recently wrapping up the Summer Slaughter Canada tour in the band’s home country, NEURAXIS’ live performance of “Versus,” another track from ‘The Thin Line Between,’ is available here (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yZhfRUHhUB4).
