Directed and produced by up-and-coming creative powerhouse Joshua Keith Young, the video is dark and suspenseful with great visuals and a storyline that captures the band’s headbanging message in support of their debut album ‘General Carnage’ released in 2013, which is available on iTunes and CD Baby.
“We had a disturbingly fun time filming the video. All the actors and crew were great and unbelievably professional. Josh [director] was amazing at bringing out the best in the cast and definitely brought the best out in us. We can’t thank him enough for it! It’s exciting to be able to give people a look into the idea of Dead Asylum.” comments vocalist / guitarist Mike Lister.
Director Joshua Keith Young also comments:
“The creative team wanted to make sure the video told a story but embodied the band’s personality as well. ‘Forgotten Sacrifice’ does a great job of featuring the band while telling a captivating and dramatic story that will affect people on an emotional level. Those words don’t often come to mind when describing a metal video, but the cast and crew are confident that when viewers see what’s being held captive in a barren dog crate, they’ll likely feel the same.”
