German thrashers EXUMER have released “Catatonic” as the first video from their latest album “The Raging Tides”. The clip was filmed and directed by David Thelen during Exumer‘s European tour in January/February and captures the dark lyrical themes of the song, portraying the psychological manifestations of physical torture and abuse.
Vocalist Mem V. Stein explains: “We were compelled to use this track as our first clip from the new album because the song sums up the overall concept behind the record very well. ‘Catatonic’ is also different as it is a mid-tempo cut, but yet just as hard-hitting as any of our fast songs – or even harder in a sense. We were able to create a visually daring piece with the help of our director and his crew, while exploring new techniques for us, working with an actor on the set for the first time.”
