Switchblade Rosie Releases New Music Video For "Nocturnal Guest"

Oklahoma City metal innovators Switchblade Rosie are premiering the music video for their song "Nocturnal Guest" online. Check out the video clip below.

"Nocturnal Guest" is the title track off the band's new EP, released this March 17th. The video was written and directed by the band's vocalist, Chris Aaron. The following statement from Aaron describes the details surrounding the production and release of the project:

"I wrote the entire screen play to coincide with the lyrics of the song. The video and song are basically about a man who is possessed not only by his inner anguish but by actual demons. While possessed, the main character beats, tortures, and murder's his victim in a fit of violent rage, he does all this with no remorse or recollection of his malicious acts. Through out the song he has moments of reality where he realizes to an extent what he is actually doing. During the climax of the video he realizes that the only way to get the demon out of his being is by ending his own life and the life of the demonic force within him.

"This song was a lot fun to write because it gave me the chance to write from two different perspectives. You'll notice during the heavier parts of the song there are glimpses of a 'hell like' scene. The success of this part of the video is all due to a local suspension group named SBS (Sick Boyz Suspension) as well as local Sideshow acts such as The Captain's Sideshow, and The Oh No Variety Show. There's live human suspension, a flesh pull, fire breathing, a bed of glass, as well as several girls from a local promotional/modelling group called The Painted Dolls. The great part about this video is that each time you watch it you are going to catch something that you did not see before.

"While this video has been my brain child and an expression of my creativity, I, nor do any of the other members of the band condone violence towards women or violence of any nature. This video could not have turned out as well as it did without the help and support of local Oklahoma artists. We as a band are extremely grateful and humbled by the amount of energy, blood, sweat and tears that went into creating this project. We take pride in the knowing that there has not been a video project quite like this to have come out of the local Oklahoma music scene."
