VIDEO NEWS: Vatican Release Video For New Single ‘Decemeta’
Vatican have released a video for their new single Decemeta, out now via UNFD.
“This song is about how we as a people love to see other people fail. There are plenty of times where it’s maybe best that this person goes away, but we’re always watching to see who’s next. Always looking for the cracks in someone’s frame,” explains vocalist Mike Sugars.
“I wanted to name the track based on how the song just makes me feel. I thought the song felt like a battle montage and landed on something like Decimation or something not great like that. Then I took inspiration from NieR: Automata and Metal Gear Rising and combined decimation with the mata thing. I just thought it looked and sounded cool.”
Vatican teamed up with their friend Beyond Sahaj to create a 3D model of VR unit mech for the video.
“When that was finished, I thought about the song we were going to release and tying it into the track,” adds drummer Josian Omar Soto-Ramos. “The first thing that popped in my head was a visualiser of it fighting off enemies in Playstation 1 inspired style with a lot of explosions and flying. Specifically the Armored Core series immediately came to mind for this and made sense with the abrasive context of the song.
“Sahaj was super stoked on the idea and we started bouncing ideas back and forth. It was a lot of fun getting this idea made into a reality and it’s all thanks to him for doing a dope job.”
