Progressive Death Metal band Akiavel has shared a new music video for the track “Lady of Death.” The track comes from their recent release Væ Victis, which dropped last spring and is one of the best death metal albums of 2021. Watch the clip now!
Frontwoman Aure comments: “Lady of Death” is a song about Aileen Wuornos. I absolutely wanted to put her on our album because I find her fascinating. I have studied her story a lot, I have a lot of compassion for her despite the fact that she has murdered people. That’s why the text isn’t very violent or bloody, it’s more based on how she feels. She had a lot of suffering in her.
For the video clip we got closer to her psychological state. That’s why we chose the actress who clearly embodied her conscience and the struggle within her.”
