Quick to point your finger
At anyone you don’t like
When opportunity strikes
In the end you’ll be ashamed
When all your lies and mistakes
Attach to your name
Detroit Deathgaze duo VAZUM have announced the release of their fiery new single, “Angel,” a haunting deathrock number (in the vein of 45 Grave and Christian Death) condemning the self-righteous and greedy.
The music video was directed and produced by the duo via their own Light Echo Studios.Vocalist/bassist Emily Sturm remarks on the music video: ‘The angels have what they want and are unhappy. The devils don’t have anything and are happy.”
The beautifully eerie DIY video depicts the dichotomy of good, evil, and the blurred lines in between. The angel sequences remind one of the 1890s Edison films starring “butterfly dancer” Loie Fuller, bringing an element of the past and present as well.
