NYC death metal Winter Nights are unveiling their new music video Starved For Energy in support of their self-titled album released this past July. Heavy, somber, and progressive, the band explains the message behind the song and video:
«In this video, we portray life and death. As things die around us, energy is taken away from this world piece by piece. This song was written about searching for that lost energy when someone or something passes on».
«We hope our viewers can relate to this video on an emotional level», the band prefaces. «In the beginning, it was about portraying grief, loss & sadness. What it has turned into is hearing a voice in the dark that’s given you the energy to survive even if it’s for one last moment. This track has the most meaning to our singer Jeremy. He wanted to create music for the deceased. Though not in a forgotten notion. Rather than their energy stays with us well pass death. It gives us the fuel to keep going and hope that we meet our beloved once again».

«Well, very well. We’ve once again offered something different than our previous work. We are looking to conjure the feeling of dread, and remembrance. We hope they can relate to it in one way or another».
