BRING ME THE HORIZON Shares The Making Of "Parasite Eve" Music Video
Filming a music video in the middle of a pandemic isn't easy but somehow, Bring Me The Horizon pulled it off magnificently.
In their latest mini vlog, the metalcore act took us behind the scenes of the "Parasite Eve" music video shoot. The band strictly followed social distancing guidelines and never got together in a single frame, shooting their scenes separately and working with minimal crew around.
According to vocalist Oli Sykes who also directed the chilling survival horror-themed visual, he took inspiration from his favorites Tokyo Ghoul and Venom along with the unfinished film called The Inferno Unseen .
“Even though the film was never properly released, some of the excerpts from that film are really sick in terms of the colours and the lighting,” Oli described the Henri-Georges Clouzot creation. “It's just so dreamlike and haunting and we really want to try and create something in a similar vein to that for this music video.”
Oli also shared that he has a friend in Russia who owns a company called Fabulous Beasts that makes really impressive scary masks, as seen on the music video. "So I'm thinking in the video, we kinda look like we're infected basically," he added, since "Parasite Eve" was heavily inspired by what's going on with the world and was written while on lockdown.
