Nervecell has now officially released a new video for "Shunq (To The Despaired…King Of Darkness)" featuring Karl Sanders (Nile) on guest vocals. The song appears on Nervecell's latest album "Psycogenocide" released on Lifeforce Records (Europe) & Spellbind Records (Middle East). The video was shot in the city of Al-Ain, United Arab Emirates, directed by Shane De Almeida and edited by Ahmad Al Sharif.
Commented the band: "This particular song is special to the band as it will mark the first extreme metal track ever to include both Arabic lyrics mixed in with English lyrics, and who better else to have come on board and collaborate on this theme with us than the legendary Karl Sanders!
"The word 'Shunq' in Arabic has two meanings: to choke or to be hung by the neck. The song consists mainly of ideas and knowledge gathered from sources that speak about Lucifer and the demons that serve him. The song speaks about the battle of us humans and these demons in reality, in the end Satan himself brought forth to justice." More...
