The Defiled released their latest album, Daggers, on August 6 in the U.S. and today are bringing you the video for one of the first tracks written for the album, "As I Drown."

"'As I Drown' was one of the first songs written for this album.  We had been playing it live for more than a year before we even booked the studio to record Daggers," says The AvD (keyboards/programming.) "It's about a certain record company executive that brought The Defiled to a stand-still for whole year. The Defiled is the most important thing in our lives so we took that very seriously." 

Of the video shoot for the song, vocalist/guitarist Stich D says, "We shot this video in a mountain range in the north of England in the middle of winter. The wind was insane to the point of constantly blowing the drums and amps over even though we used rocks to hold them down. It was a fun day shooting but a very tough one." 

Check out the video above and let us know what you think.
