French death metal masters AKIAVEL have unleashed a video for their song “Lady of Death“. The track is taken from their critically acclaimed album Væ Victis which was released in April.
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.”
The video has premiered simultaneously at several outlets worldwide.
