"Blood Culture", the new video from Danish thrash metallers ESSENCE, can be viewed below. The song comes off the band's debut album, "Lost In Violence", which will be released on February 25 via Belgium's Ultimhate Records. The CD was recorded at Medley Studios (ARTILLERY, PRINCE, RADIOHEAD, MARY J. BLIGE, KELLY CLARKSON, THE CARDIGANS) in Copenhagen and was produced and mixed by Soren Andersen (Glenn Hughes, Dave Mustaine, Mike Tramp). The mastering duties were handled by Nikolaj Vinten at Vinten Mastering (COLDPLAY, D-A-D, DIZZY MIZZ LIZZY). The cover artwork was created by Justin Osbourn from Slash Design (ABORTED, SUICIDE SILENCE, ABIGAIL WILLIAMS, MAROON, SKELETONWITCH) and can be viewed below.
Commented the band: "We are very satisfied that the video finally is done and that the final outcome became as we wanted it to be, though it has been a very cold and rough experience to record the film.
"The lyrics deal with the subject of using your life to do worthless actions and thereby waste precious time, which you will never get back.
"The episode in the video could be any given unfortunate situation and we hope that the viewers will enjoy watching it."
ESSENCE can be experienced live in March and early April when the band will participate in 3rd Tsunami Agency's "The New Era Tour", featuring ESSENCE and two other Danish acts performing all across Denmark.
