Australian groove metal sensation Carbon Black proudly presents the official music video for the track “Under Order” featuring the legendary Tim ‘Ripper’ Owens. The captivating video, directed by Adam Jordan and starring the talented Shakira Pacana, serves as a visual masterpiece that perfectly complements the band’s energy and lyrical intensity. The video won two awards in the 2022 Euro Video Song Awards in the categories “Best Rock Music Video” and “Best Action Music Video”. “Under Order” is a gripping musical journey that delves into the realms of exhaustion, despair, and societal corruption. With its dark and intense portrayal of societal decay, personal struggle, and the moral implications of power, the track serves as a potent anthem for those seeking truth in an increasingly tumultuous world.
“We wanted to make a video that showed an everyday person going about their daily grind, but suffering from crippling self-doubt and internal conflict at every turn. The catchphrase from the beginning was “Beware the enemy within”, and our director Adam Jordan captured this perfectly. Shakira is a professional stuntwoman and MMA fighter, she was so dedicated to her action scenes that it was inspiring to watch! ” Capturing the essence of Carbon Black’s unique sound, “Under Order” is taken from their forthcoming album, ‘We Remain’ Special Edition, scheduled to be released on July 14th, 2023, via Wormholedeath label. The album was mixed by legendary Producer Kevin ‘Caveman’ Shirley (Dream Theater, Iron Maiden) in his studio in Manly, Sydney during the lockdown. Kevin lends his immense experience to a truly thunderous mix that sets the bar higher than ever. Carbon Black’s lineup includes Jonathan Hurley on vocals, Steve Giles on drums and percussion, Rob Giles on bass guitar, and Damon Bishop on guitar. The band’s blend of social and political commentary and a lot of heart has earned them a loyal following and critical acclaim.
