French melodic death metallers Akiavel have just released a video for “Lady Of Death” off their April 2021 album Vae Victus. Inspired by serial killer Aileen Wuornos.
Frontwoman Aure comments: I absolutely wanted to put (Aileen Wuornos) on our album because I find her fascinating. I have studied her story a lot, I have a lot of compassion for her despite the fact that she has murdered people. That’s why the text isn’t very violent or bloody, it’s more based on how she feels. She had a lot of suffering in her.
For the video clip we got closer to her psychological state. That’s why we chose the actress who clearly embodied her conscience and the struggle within her.”
