Director Statement

It was an absolute pleasure working on ‘Raw’ in Sunny Piraeus, Greece. The immediate challenge with making this video was to capture the essence of the film without compromising on the metal nature of the song. We wanted to see the band in their natural environment, the studio, doing what they do best, blasting away their unique take of heavy metal and loud rock, and we wanted the essential beats of the narrative to fuse right in there. In the end, we got what we wanted, a kickass tune and the psychological horror of a loving fiancé, slowly turning into a flesh eating psychopath.
