Montreal based Derelict have released their video for the track â€œMacheteâ€ online at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=93oc3CbRuMA. The video was shot in Brantford, Ontario by director Justin Peeler of Frontline Pictures.
“Machete is about the violence going on around the world at any given moment. In the Western world we are lulled into a false sense of safety. Our cozy little cradle society shelters us from what’s really happening around the world and allows us to forget that our very own system is part of what supports and encourages the ongoing extermination of human beings,â€ commented Derelictâ€™s Eric Burnet about the song. â€œJustin did a great job conveying this message visually. The sudden brutality of the narrative sequence is shocking, realistic, and just really drives the point home.”
â€œMacheteâ€ is the lead single from Derelictâ€™s new album â€œUnspoken Wordsâ€, which was recently released through Year of the Sun Records. The album was recorded in the metal mecca of Canada, Montreal, Quebec under the watchful eye of Cryptopsy guitarist Chris Donaldson (The Agonist, Cryptopsy). EXCLAIM Magazine proclaimed that the band “combines several realms of extreme music into a very tasty final result.â€ The group is currently streaming tracks from their debut online at www.myspace.com/derelictmetal and for sale at http://www.cdbaby.com/Artist/Derelict.
Derelict has become a powerhouse within the Montreal metal scene by garnering a cult of rabid fans that have earned them opening slots for The Agonist, the Plasmarifle, Threat Signal and Ion Dissonance. Their brand of metallic brutality and schizophrenic musical changes has drawn comparisons to Strapping Young Lad and the legendary Death.
