Dew-Scented Should Really See Someone About “Ruptured Perpetually”

We still have eyes for German death metal mainstays Dew-Scented, and they have I’s for us. Latest album Intermination dropped on Prosthetic this summer, and the “Ruptured Perpetually” music video below offers limitless riffage. The quintet is also dropping a split EP with Angelus Apatrida on October 16, containing re-recorded version of the single “New Found Pain” from 2003’s Impact, along with a cover of Vio-lence’s “World in a World.”

“We love vinyl and it’s great to see a next limited (500x!) split EP coming to life,” comments frontman Leif Jensen. “We partnered with our buddies Angelus Apatrida on this one in the light of the upcoming European tour we are doing together next month.”

“For the video for ‘Ruptured Perpetually,’ we reached out to Philipp [Hirsch] from Film-1,” says guitarist Marvin Vriesde. “Philipp also directed our first video, 10 years ago, for the song ‘Turn To Ash.’ During the shoot, I painfully remembered how Philipp makes you push the envelope with the performance for the video. It was a long day of shredding and headbanging, but judging by the end result, it was definitely worth it! In short, the song is about someone who devotes his life to religion and finds out right before the end that there is no afterlife. It just ends. I love how the video captures the dark atmosphere of the lyrical and musical concept. The devotion towards the light in a world filled with darkness. The riffs in the song symbolize religion. They all are variations based on the main riff in the song. Constantly shifting in perspective and posing a constant threat, building up to a climax and all returning to the uniform beginning at the end. The alpha and the omega, ending in silence. Nothingness.”
