Whitechapel have unveiled a NSFW music video for their song ‘Let Me Burn’.
The track is taken from their latest studio album Our Endless War, released in 2014 via Metal Blade Records.
Commenting on the video, directed by Mitch Massie (Cattle Decapitation, The Dillinger Escape Plan), vocalist Phil Bozeman says:
“The basis of the video is about a man, his wife and daughter. The story depicts the degradation of the man and him going insane. He kills his wife and makes his daughter kill him. He douses himself in gasoline and begs her to strike the match. But the whole point of the story is that the man has everything he wants and needs, but has no control over his mind and suffers with clinical insanity/schizophrenia and kills his wife and regrets everything. His daughter lives on as he burns alive in his house.”
Guitarist Alex Wade adds, “It’s our first time trying a story based video versus a performance video with us playing and we’re really happy with how it came out. Phil’s idea for the concept of the video mixed with Mitch Massie’s directing developed a very dark and sinister feel that represents the song well.”
