‘The Gates Of Bedlam’ is taken from their three track self-titled vinyl EP of which is due for release early June, independently via Bethlam Records as a 12” coloured vinyl.
‘The Gates Of Bedlam’ is lyrically set in London’s Bethlam Hospital and discusses the atrocities committed there by the rich and upper class of society, against those deemed unfit for real life.
Guitarist Jon Whitfield commented, “This video was loads of fun to do, it’s straight up and simple, fast and dark which is what we wanted. It’s difficult to do a video without coming across as bent and pretentious, but I think we’ve done well here. The lyrics for this track are really clever and for me it was the obvious choice to do a vid for.”
The video was recorded at the Collective Studios, Bridgewater by Jody Cusack of Zero Cut Media.
The EP contains three new tracks; ‘Sick Abomination’, ‘The Maniac’ and ‘The Gates of Bedlam’ with over 20 minutes of music, Flayed Disciple are set to deliver more of the epic thrash style that they began to carve for themselves on the debut album ‘Death Hammer’.
Since the release of ‘Death Hammer’ in 2012, things have moved forward greatly and at great speed. With massive acclaim from the metal media Flayed Disciple gained coverage in mainstream magazines such as Metal Hammer & Terrorizer. The band released two music videos previously, ‘The Shrine Of Dahmer’ and ‘The Westboro Massacre’; the latter, which went on to reach over 90,000 views on YouTube.
The band have toured up and down their native UK as well as Europe and beyond with heavyweights such as Vader, Aborted, Blood Red Throne etc. The band have played numerous festivals including the UK’s Bloodstock Festival, Hammerfest and they made an appearance at the Indian Metal Fest in Bangalore alongside Gojira.
Having already made an impression as a formidable act in the UK underground, things can only get bigger.
