PRIEST premiere cinematic video Nightcrawler ahead of COMBICHRIST tour

The only thing louder than the buzz of anticipation surrounding the release of the brand-new studio album from dark wave act PRIEST is the overdriven synths and throbbing basslines of the band’s superb ‘Nightcrawler’, the fourth single from the group’s epic new album release BODY MACHINE, which is OUT NOW. The song is, at first blush, diametrically opposed to the theatrical ‘80s metal performed by their forebear, the Grammy-award winning metal act GHOST: a nightclub-ready dance track that trades distorted guitars for industrial strength synths and retro metal theatrics for futuristic cyberpunk thrills. But a closer listen, and a glimpse of the fantastic music video for the track, shows the dark underbelly of PRIEST’s music that ravers and wraiths alike can enjoy.

The video for ‘Nightcrawler’ is PRIEST’s most cinematic vision to date, portraying a night in the life of the titular thrill-seeker who finds himself in the establishment of the mysterious Mercury (PRIEST vocalist).

Don’t miss PRIEST live in the UK this August as special guests to COMBICHRIST on their European tour.
