Brazilian death/thrash metal trio Claustrofobia has released their seventh full-length studio album “Unleeched”, and to promote the new work, they debut the music video for the disc’s opening track “Stronger Than Faith”. You can watch it below.
About the song, Marcus D’Angelo says: “Undeniably it’s the most powerful song on the album, I love the Brazilian flavor into the traditional thrash/death riffs, and this becomes more evident when the drumming attacks the song in connection with the bass”.
Made entirely in DIY style, this video was filmed on the Nelson Ghost Town at the historical Techatticup Mine and directed and edited by drummer Caio D’Angelo. It’s the oldest, richest and most famous gold mine in Southern Nevada, USA. All promotional photos were taken in Nelson Ghost Town, and the intro of the album has the sound of an abandoned piano that was also filmed in front of a chapel in Nelson.
Shooting the music video for this track in the same location was a unanimous choice within the band. “That place has an incredible and strong energy”, said Marcus D’Angelo.
Produced by Adair Daufembach and Claustrofobia, recorded, mixed and mastered by Adair Daufembach in August 2020 at Northwood Sound Studio in Los Angeles, “Unleeched”, was released by Metal Assault Records on March 11, 2022 on digital and physical formats.
Claustrobia was formed in 1994 by brothers Marcus and Caio D’Angelo, boasts of a career spanning nearly three decades, a discography comprising six full-length albums and a DVD release, a multitude of international tours, high-profile live performances sharing stages with the likes of Iron Maiden, Slayer, Anthrax and countless fans all over the world.
