Terror Parade, the Brisbane based Horror-Goth metal band, have just released their new single and film clip ‘Ghost’. Written about fear and the shadows behind the drapes and under your bed, the track encompasses those eerie nightmares of childhoods past and Terror Parade really wanted to make their listeners relive these feelings when recording this song.
“This song is written about ‘the fear of the invisible” from a naive and childish perception. However the gravity of this fear in an adult’s mind is magnified – be it fear of the dark, paranormal forces, paranoia or the fear of one’s deepest insecurities and inner demons surfacing. We fight this fear on a daily basis so we can mask our self-doubt and uncertainty for the fear of perception by others,” Miss Rampage, vocalist for Terror Parade, explains.
“The lyrics ‘I am the ghost inside your mind, ingesting the poison and you will be mine’ again depict the state of mind when you are consumed and frozen still in your own self-doubt. The constant negative thoughts contributing towards the paranoia is the ‘poison’ you are ingesting until you give them absolute control and become a victim of your own mind,” She adds.
The song was brought to life by Luke McLean at Shots For Bands and they were aiming for a clip that was as spooky as possible. “We talked about putting archive footage together to create something eerie to suit the song. I researched a lot of paranormal, scary and dark archive footage and Luke pieced it all together to give the song a narrative and a visual. The old VHS overlay adds to the ominous feeling. We used a lot of landscapes to reiterate the fear of the invisible- you can’t see anything but there is some eeriness about it,” says Miss Rampage.
