Metalcore band Ice Nine Kills have released a video for their track “Communion of the Cursed”, which comes from their upcoming album Every Trick in the Book. The video is pretty much a hyper shortened remake of The Exorcist, complete with split pea vomit and rotating heads. It’s done with a lot of love, care, and reverence for the film and there is a very high production value offered, which makes it really entertaining.
Vocalist Spencer Charnas explains the video and its inspiration:
William Peter Blatty’s 1971 classic novel, The Exorcist, tells the horrifying story of the possession of a 12 year old girl by the devil himself. It’s adaptation to the big screen in 1973 terrified audiences all over the world and is widely considered to be the scariest film of all time. We wanted our song and video for “Communion Of The Cursed” to pay a respectful homage to this brilliantly twisted story and to hopefully help expose people to this literary gem which has stood the test of time. We set out to make this video really feel like a horror film by adding an opening and closing that stands alone from the song. The actors and directors involved in the project brought my vision to life in the most elegant way possible. I couldn’t be more thrilled for people to experience this next chapter.
Every Trick in the Book comes out December 4th, marking their debut release with Fearless Records. They will also be headlining the Fresh Faces tour. All tour dates can be found here.
