The members of Sydney–based technical death metal band Ouroboros are immensely excited to unveil the film clip for Sanctuary, a song from their debut album Glorification of a Myth. The Sanctuary video was directed and edited by Paul Shedlowich of Plint Productions and was inspired by Colin Marks' Glorification of a Myth album artwork and the ancient Greek myth of Chronos devouring his children.
"Our aim was to create a world–class video that represented themes present in Sanctuary as well as the Glorification of a Myth album as a whole. This pushed us to use some risky—but ultimately effective—guerilla filmmaking tactics which took us to challenging locations amid torrential weather. Shedlowich did an incredible job of handling both the creative and administrative aspects of the production and pulled together an astoundingly talented and hard–working team of camera operators, actors, photographers, makeup artists and behind–the–scenes people to make his vision a reality. The whole Ouroboros team is thrilled with the result and we can't wait to share it with our fans." – David Horgan
On the back of the success of Glorification of a Myth, Ouroboros has just received funding from the Australia Council for the Arts to write and produce their next studio album. More updates will follow soon.
