Remember when Mtv played music videos? Remember how some of them were super amazing because they were, basically, mini movies set to music? Well, the members of White Empress certainly do and they have crafted a truly beautiful video. Essentially a short horror film, Revenant is a complex song about two families at war, demons and a centuries old curse. The music genre of Metal may not be for everyone, but this video transcends musical tastes by gifting us with some genuinely eerie and beautiful imagery.
Formerly of Cradle of Filth, Paul Allender is not only a member of White Empress, but he also owns the production company Era Horrificus which is responsible for this gorgeous music video. Clocking in at just over ten minutes, the Revenant delivers a horror film that has had great care and attention to detail paid to it. Honestly, this music video is more carefully and lovingly crafted than some full feature length horror films I’ve endured, which is why I was doubly excited to learn that a feature length movie based on this video is in production. Please, do yourself a favor and watch this the video here:
