Today Metal Nexus drops the exclusive music video premiere of Heartsick’s “Snake Man.” Hitting the streets, we see imagery of a mixed martial arts fight, badass lowered pickup trucks, drunken house party debauchery, and a protest rally while the Michigan quartet performs in a small, darkly-lit venue. The track is powerfully groove-laden and drenched in attitude with lead vocalist Alfonso Civile especially knocking it completely out of the park during the chorus. The overall look and feel is pleasingly DIY which adds to the track’s street-level grittiness; and the heavily-effected, tripped-out guitar solo is the perfect cherry on top to solidify its immediate replay-ability factor.
As veterans of the scene, Heartsick has been at it since 2000 and toured with such names as Hatebreed, Fear Factory, All That Remains, Every Time I Die, and more. Their relentless hard work and equally impressive live show has been earning them an ever-growing fanbase throughout the Midwest and the nation. The group consisting of Alfonso Civile, Waylon Fox, Jerred Pruneau, and Justin Robison have an extensive discography already under their belt that’s definitely worth digging into. To check out more, you can find their music on Pandora, Q106 FM (Michigan), and as a featured artist on ReverbNation’s Metal Monday.
