Darkness Visible To Unleash Mayhem and Melody in Upcoming Video
Darkness Visible are veterans of the Gothic Rock scene. The Australia-based band has produced music since 1994. Over twenty years later and Darkness Visible don’t intend on stopping anytime soon.
Darkness Visible will be releasing their ninth music video; “Breaking Point”. Nine videos over a span of twenty-three years of music making are not uncanny. Music genres considered alternative in nature don’t abide by standards of mainstream. That’s a relief! Imagine talent-less bubblegum popping boy bands infiltrating a genre rich in talent. The Goth culture spans different levels of interpretation. From Victorian style to modern leather and lace, the culture is rich in expression.
Music video becomes an option for many musical performers in the Gothic scene. For others, the accompaniment of visuals enhances the tonality of the forbidden.
David Black, a member of Darkness Visible serves as co-director for the upcoming video. This production platform is the evolution of Black’s creativity. As a musician Black one graced the early punk rock scene. Aside from his contributions in music Black is known as an award-winning illustrator. Punkz and Punkz in Space were notable illustration-based projects he’d released.
According to the press release “Breaking Point” will showcase humor and sadomasochism. It is not common to see these two descriptions in one sentence. Yet, Darkness Visible will make it possible to enjoy both in their upcoming music video.
The music video “Breaking Point” is set to release on YouTube sometime in 2017. An added attraction is the event launch. For more information visit the following;

Having followed the Industrial/Goth genre for over thirty years there isn’t anything surprising. Yet, judging by the stills Darkness Visible are going to great lengths to conjure shock and awe-yeah!
Below are a few quotes, excerpts from the press release issued
“After 8 music videos, I decided that now was the time to pull out all the stops. This time it was no holds barred and take no prisoners!”
“It’s a medical fetish Ozploitation video that has clowns with chainsaws, jelly wrestling in vomit, giant syringes being shoved up bums, dwarves with dildos, boobs, gimps and streaming pus! What more could a person want in a music video?”
