Motionless In White are back yet again with their new release, Graveyard Shift. This band has always had a knack for genre transition, and Graveyard Shift is no exception. They stay on the industrial path they’ve been going down with tracks like “Queen For Queen” and “Necessary Evil,” the latter of which features Jonathan Davis, frontman of Nu-Metal juggernaut, Korn. MIW also introduce a more punk-inspired vibe on their single, “Loud(Fuck It).” Most refreshing to hear is that they’re not afraid to still get heavy, which is obviously apparent on the ironically titled, “Soft.”
Industrial gothcore rockers, Motionless In White are known for their shocking, disturbing, and unsettling music videos. Constantly pushing the limits of your comfort zone, MIW typically focus on death, corruption, and overall unpleasantness with their visuals while keeping it all wrapped up nicely in a highly artistic and surprisingly tasteful bow. Their latest video for their second single off of Reincarnate, “Break The Cycle,” presents MIW in a more tamed light while still upholding their classic gothic aesthetic. Set in a candle-lit Victorian-era room, the band fade back and forth between playing their instruments to fighting their rather frightening-looking inner demons. The gore, the horror, and the eerie ambiance are all present, but masked in subtlety that makes them so much more alluring. Check out the video here and let us know what you think!
