Bodyfarm Posts "Unbroken" Video

"Unbroken," the new video from Dutch death metallers Bodyfram, can be seen below. The "Unbroken" video was shot in the woods of Amersfoort and the band shots were filmed in Nick Rozenberg’s studio.

Frontman Thomas Wouters comments: "The video was shot in the woods of Amersfoort near a Sovjet field of honor. The battles in the second world war were fierce in this area. Since 'Unbroken' is about perseverance and bravery on the battlefield, we thought this was a suitable place to do the shots of the wounded soldier."

"Unbroken" is the opening track of Bodyfram's second album, "The Coming Scourge," set to be released on the 20th of September via Cyclone Empire. The album was recorded from February until May in Oerknal Studios, and was mixed and mastered by Ronnie Björnström from Enhanced Audio Productions.
