Alluvial, the band featuring guitarist Wes Hauch (ex-Black Crown Initiate, ex-The Faceless), vocalist Kevin Muller (ex-Pyrexia, ex-Suffocation [live]), drummer Zach Dean, and bassist Tim Walker, is now streaming their way more atmospheric new single "Death Is But A Door". But don't worry – Alluvial brings plenty of house-flattening riffs along with that spaciousness.
The video for "Death Is But A Door" was directed by Juan Carlos Escobar Salazar and traces the mental and emotional descent of a man against an apocalyptic urban backdrop. "The best of us carry a dormant horror," said Alluvial. "The very worst of us still have a heart."
"Ever since I heard Alluvial's Sarcoma, they quickly became one of my absolute favorite bands," said Salazar. "As a musician myself, I was blown away by their technicality, brutality, and their devastating wall of sound in their songs. So when my friend Mada Fleming introduced me to Kevin Muller literally a couple months ago, he mentioned the possibility of collaborating on a music video for a song in their upcoming EP.
"I was more than thrilled! Through a phone call, Wes Hauch and Kevin gave me the premise of what they had in mind for the video. After knowing what their vision was, I reached out to the incredibly talented actor, writer, producer, and director Nickolas Jacobs and through a lot of work and ingenuity, we delivered a piece that encapsulates the vision of the band and the atmosphere of the song. As a cinematographer, I had a lot of fun creating this; as a musician and a huge fan, it was an honor being part of this project with Alluvial and Nuclear Blast Records."
Death Is But A Door is out January 12. Pre-orders are available here.
