Fresh from releasing his third album “The Beautiful Death”, Violence Against Man, the Synth-driven Dark Wave solo act based in Graz, Austria follows with the cinematic video produced and directed by his friend Lorenzo Tobia for the title track “The Beautiful Death”.
“The Beautiful Death” builds a darkly fascinating emotional aura that bleakly pulses through stomping, at times skipping drum beats, buzzing bass lines, and hypnotizing blinking icy bright synth spirals, to invoke an alienating hopelessness around powerfully haunting pain-fueled vocals, left wishing for death.
A gripping mini-movie by Lorenzo Tobia captures the mental breakdown of a lost soul as he travels a busy urban terrain in search of a real connection. The clip begins with our tragic figure reading Yuko Mishima’s Samurai novel, “Runaway Horses”, to give insight into what “The Beautiful Death” might entail. Shifting flows of motion, thought-provoking camera angles, and an on-point dramatic performance by Violence Against Man causes a deep empathy for the macabre ending, as we can feel that he is truly a sincere person and is suffering.
