Ava Inferi Conjure Vintage Spirits in 'Living End'

Gothic metal band Ava Inferni have premiered the new music video "The Living End," a track from their latest full-length album Onyx, to be their own personal twist on old-school ghost/haunted house movies, using lush gothic imagery and haunting locations to tell the tale of a restless spirit and the team of exorcists who confront her. We've got the video after the jump, along with more info about the band and their latest work...

Based in Portugal (also home of fellow gothic metallers Moonspell), Ava Inferi includes Rune Eriksen, whom fans of Norwegian black metal will remember as a member of the notorious band Mayhem, in which he was known by the handle "Blasphemer." Eriksen takes on guitar and songwriting roles for Onyx, the band's fourth studio album, which was produced by Dan Swanö (who has worked with revered bands like Opeth and Katatonia), and released earlier this year by Season Of Mist Records.

Directed by Costin Chioreanu – who also directed the band's previous video "Majesty" – the video for "The Living End" is described by the band as "our own homage to '50s horror cinema, and what we feel is a fitting visual to accompany the content of the song, and also to a certain extent the aesthetics of Ava Inferi."
