“Divide” – Indianapolis metalcore band EXITWOUNDS streaming new video

Inspired by an urban legend, Indianapolis metalcore band EXITWOUNDS have shared their latest single and music video “Divide” via Sharptone Records.

The song is about the legend of Edward Mordrake, the man with two faces. A young, intelligent, and good-looking English nobleman who had everything one could ask for from life. With all these great blessings, however, came a terrible curse. In addition to his handsome, normal face, Mordake possessed a terrifying disfigurement: another face on the back of his head.

The music video for “Divide” was our first video that we’ve done in multiple locations. Vince Lundi had the incredible idea to shoot one scene in an old Victorian style home and the other scene in a rundown barn to visually resemble the two faces of Edward Mordrake. Out of the four music videos that we have released, this was by far one of our favorites to shoot!

This second face had eyes and a mouth, but could not see, hear, or speak out loud. It was said that the face would sneer while Mordrake was happy and smile while he was weeping. Edward Mordrake was constantly plagued by his “devil twin,” which kept him up all night whispering “such things as they only speak of in hell.” According to the legend, the face muttering things in his ear constantly drove Mordrake insane and he committed suicide at the age of 23.

One thing that’s not an urban legend, “Divide” is an enormous track with heavy riffs and melodic vocals. The track has an overall sinister sound that pairs well with the video’s eerie location and aesthetics.

Lyrics:

You’re in the back of my mind
I feel you smiling at me
I wish that I couldn’t see, I wish that this was a dream
In the mirror looking back at your eyes
I’ll set myself in flames and hope I go blind

I am apart of you
I am a piece of your mind
I will be your disease
I will be your demise
Please just let me die
I can’t stand these voices I can’t stand another night

Talking to myself
I’m talking to myself
My bones belong to hell
Conscience slips away
My conscience slips away
As my body starts to decay

You’re nothing
You’re just a worm with no spine
And I will make sure that I haunt you until the day that you die
But I’m already dead, this is no life to live
You’re stuck with me and I can see the fear is growing in your eyes
You’re my disease, but I will be your demise
I will be your demise

Talking to myself
I’m talking to myself
My bones belong to hell
Conscience slips away
My conscience slips away
As my body starts to decay

So this is it, it’s time to say our goodbyes
I’d rather see you in hell, than to see you alive.
