Freakishly catchy industrial duo SKYND have shared a video for their latest single ‘Gary Heidnik’ – and it’s not for the faint-hearted. Featuring Jonathan Davis of Korn, the track is taken from the band’s debut EP Chapter 1, which is set for release on August 15th.
‘Gary Heidnik’ details the real-life crimes of Gary Michael Heidnik, the American murderer who kidnapped and tortured women while holding them prisoner in his basement in Philadelphia. This grim context is given new life by SKYND (formed of the eponymous front woman and her collaborator ‘Father’) and director TallyHo!, who merge horror-style tableau’s and dehumanised vocals to tell this tragic tale.
SKYND represent the next level of aural immersion, intermingling sound, visuals, and a warning worth heeding. Explaining the concept behind the music SKYND said: “All human beings are capable of cruelty and we have to keep the inner animal in check. We’re here to provide a different perspective on the psyche to maybe answer some questions.”
