Fresno-Livermore metallers HATEFX, featuring Glen Alvelais (ex-TESTAMENT, FORBIDDEN) and G (ex-DOGMA CHILE) has released a video teaser showcasing the brand new track titled ‘Play It By Fear’, to be featured on the band’s new release, titled Under Destruction, slated for digital release later this fall.
The cover artwork was created by by Chilean/Italian digital artist- photographer Claudio Bergamin, who has previously worked with HALFORD, ARJEN LUCASSEN, RATA BLANCA, CRIMINAL, DOGMA and other bands from Europe and America.
Under Destruction was recorded at Green Bird studios in Fresno, California with remote supervision of Chilean producer Javier Bassino (Estudios Bassino). Javier engineered, mixed and mastered the CD, which marks Alvelais’ recording debut with the band.
The video is being produced by Chilean videographer Juan Pablo Arriagada who had worked with Dogma (Chile) and HateFX before with collaboration from central valley videographer Enik Sleastak
The concept for the video came from actual events that tie in with the lyric content of the song dealing with extortion, manipulation and blackmail and there is a parallel story that describes the key events of the situation.
G (frontman) comments “It was important to have professional actors portray this very graphic storyline that describes how manipulation and extortion can get out of hand, causing emotional and physical distress to those involved and Enik (videographer) did a great job with casting the right team for the job, we are looking forward to share the final version for this concept video. The story blends in great with the music…We have enough material for an extended version that we are thinking of putting together before the release of out next single.”
The band is scheduled to continue playing live in support of this release including a west coast run before the end of the year.
