Avant-garde Heavy Rock Band PHILM, featuring vocalist/multi-instrumentalist Gerry Nestler (Civil Defiance, Kkleq Muzzil) and bassist Pancho Tomaselli (War, Ultraphonix), have released a video for the song ‘Cries of the Century.” The track comes off of their latest album, Time Burner, out via Metalville Records.
Says Nestler: “We’ve been wanting to get this clip out for a while now but it’s been one hold up after another. But, “better late than never”, as they say. We shot everything at G&L Guitars in Fullerton CA who’ve been incredibly supportive of Philm and let us use their showcase room for the day. Alejandro Mercado from the band The World Over did the shoot with us on drums but is not a member. And we had our old friend Rick Kosick behind the camera who directed, edited, and produced the video, with Donald Andrews also lending a hand in the editing process. Rick has been by our side from the very beginning of Philm and also lensed our ‘Held In Light’ video as well as other things. He is super talented and has done everything from shooting album covers for the Deftones to being the DP for ‘King of the Road’ on Vice. And, of course, he’s been the cameraman on all the ‘Jackass’ movies and TV shows. So we were in great hands to really capture the energy of ‘Cries of the Century’ in a performance setting.”
‘Time Burner’ is PHILM’s first album since the departure of drummer Dave Lombardo (ex-SLAYER) and was recorded with engineer/producer Chris Sorem at Nest Recorders in Los Angeles CA. It features Venezuelan-born Grammy Award winning guest percussionist Anderson Quintero on drums. PHILM have yet to announce a new full-time drummer.
