Video Premiere: Menace – Painted Rust
Menace is a new project masterminded by Napalm Death guitarist Mitch Harris, with assistance from bandmate Shane Embury – but leave those expectations behind as Prog premieres their video for Painted Rust, below.
It’s taken from the upcoming debut Menace album, Impact Velocity, and the video features the artwork of Kseniya Simonova – and the collaboration aims to support a Ukrainian children’s cancer charity.
Harris explains: “Kseniya performs her sand art live worldwide, and has helped draw attention on the charity. The families of a small group of children can’t afford treatment and it’s an uphill climb with a long way to go.
“We are focusing on a girl named Marina. She is a champion gymnast who desparately needs treatment which her family can’t pay for. Hope is the only tool we have at present – no matter how complicated life seems, through all our personal traumas, and the aspects of modern life, until presented with tragedy, we sometimes fail to recognise how fragile life is.”
Harris says of Simonova’s work in the video: “It’s true and from the heart – and it will leave a lasting impression in hearts and souls on a global scale.”
