WET ASHES – “DELERIUM”
A Spill Exclusive Video Premiere
Filmed outside of a Neo-Gothic church in Guadalajara Mexico, the story of ‘Delirium’ shows a man detached from his surroundings, not being able to see people in front of him; not even the wandering female character which is the cause of his remorse of past decisions and perhaps the cause of his delirium. The light radiating from his hands is a symbol of the feeling of attachment that he can’t let go of but at the end you can see he finally accepts responsibility for his acts. The dramatic violin arrangements and the references in the lyrics to cults, ghosts and a cemetery is what influenced the director of the video to select this mournful backdrop. As a side note the female character is also the model in Wet Ashes latest album cover The Main Mane and it is possibly a hint of what’s to come in their next video.
“Regret is something that we all experience and we should be able to express this feeling. I wanted the song to let the listener unburden themselves from this feeling. The reference to joining a cult refers to finding an escape or distraction allowing the past fade away. But in the end the only thing that will make things better is taking responsibility of your own acts.”
