rise and fall

With March right around the corner, anticipation is growing for certain releases, and one of mine happens to be from the Belgian hardcore band Rise And Fall. Now, while I sit and patiently wait for their album Faith, which will be available March 20th, the good folks over at Deathwish Inc. have released a music video for one of the new tracks from the album, called ‘Hidden Hands‘. The video was directed by Mathieu Vandekerckhov, and it captures the bands raw and aggressive nature, plus the video isn’t cheesy, like some of the more recent videos that have been popping up lately…

Anyway, below is the video along with a press release issued from Deathwish Inc. that goes behind the scenes on the making of the video, as well as some other tidbits of information. Enjoy!


On a sunny sunday morning in October last year we invited close to 30 of our friends to our practice space in Ghent for the shoot of the first ever Rise And Fall music video. We didn’t invite them to act like they were the crowd or anything, no, we invited them to be Rise And Fall.

From 8 in the morning ’till sunset, footage was shot of our friends pretending they were Rise And Fall. It resulted in 8 hours of footage which was later distilled into a 112 seconds long video by director Mathieu Vandekerckhove who also filmed the whole project. All this hard work, and sweat (we kept the heat at full blast in our practice space), resulted in a visual and auditive whirlwind that will commence after you hit play. Turn it up loud, watch it full screen and in HD if possible! We wanna thank everyone in the video and especially Mr. Vandekerckhove who spent hours on end editing this bastard.

Look for members of Oathbreaker, Congress, Hessian, Reproach, Kindred, Amenra, Kingdom, Blind To Faith, Insult, Inhume, The Rott Childs, Kabul Golf Club, Kapitan Korsakov, Drums Are for parades, Minor Thieves, Vermin Twins, Officer Jones, Morrocan, Control Records, Rhythm To The Madness, Justice, Filler, Joshua’s Song,… all bands we advise you to check out and find out what’s going on in Belgium in 2012. Thank you.

Directed by Mathieu Vandekerckhove
