Evile’s “In Memoriam” opens with a simple riff played on a bass guitar. As the back story goes, it’s one former bassist Mike Alexander used to play during sound checks before he passed away in 2009 from a pulmonary embolism on his lungs.
Like the song, the video is a tribute to the band’s old friend.
“We are really excited for our fans, both new and old, to see our video for ‘In Memoriam’. It’s a different sound and approach for us, definitely, but we hope our fans appreciate the sentiment and reason this song exists,” said drummer Ben Carter. “There’s a lot of context in the song that everyone will at one time or another relate to, and we hope we have captured that essence in the video.”
The song is taken off last year’s Five Serpent’s Teeth
