San Diego, California based metal group As I Lay Dying has posted a new music video online for the song, "I Never Wanted." You can check it out below (please note; the video is unavailable to view outside the United States.) The song comes from the bands latest album, "An Ocean Between Us" and is featured on the bands platinum selling new DVD, "This Is Who We Are."

Guitarist Phil Sgrosso says: "We've talked about doing a video for I Never Wanted for quite some time now. Most videos that we've done have been for more fast and aggressive songs that have the usual AILD sound to it but we wanted to mix things up and do a video for a slower (but still heavy!) song that would be made up of footage from our new DVD, This Is Who We Are."

"Denise Korycki filmed and directed our DVD so we thought it would be perfect for her to make a video that incorporated mostly footage from the DVD, plus some bonus stuff as well! The live footage is made up of several shows that we played in the past few years while the 'hanging out' footage was shot mostly while we were...well...hanging out. Not much more to it, I guess! Generally it takes us a day or two to film one of our videos but in a way, it took several years to make I Never Wanted what it is. I hope you enjoy it."

Whoa...I didn't expect them to re-mix the song for the video.They cut out the first 35 seconds off of the intro and a few more at the end, raised the clean vocal levels and the backing vocal levels in the main mix, and really feels like they went back and beefed up the sound. anyone else notice that?
