DEADLOCK - "VIRUS JONES" MUSIC VIDEO
'BIZARRO WORLD' OUT NEXT MONTH ON LIFEFORCE RECORDS
GERMANY -- German melodic heavy metal group, Deadlock premiere's the music video for "Virus Jones", the opening track from the Deadlock's forthcoming full-length, Bizarro World, which is due out on March 15th on
Lifeforce Records. The video was filmed in Leipzip, Germany with directors, Philipp Hirsch and Heiko Tippelt (Heaven Shall Burn,Triptykon, Amon Amarth), and attempts to capture the meaning behind the track's lyrics, which deal with pharmaceutical, medical, and biological technology, and the business behind it.
"Mankind has been suffering from diseases for years, blaming it on viruses or whatever, taking medicines and all kinds of medical treatments, but never asking twice, just consuming to forget about its fears," said vocalist, Johannes Prem. "It's all about promoting new products and finding new therapies, but it is never about really helping the patients. In the end you have the choice whether you want to die for fear of the disease, from the disease itself, or because of the side effects of your medicines. The video shows every band member as an individual playing alone on that stage called life."
