South Florida heavy metal / metalcore outfit, FORTY WINTERS, has teamed up with Revolver to launch a music video for the track “Snuff out the Light,” taken from the band’s recently released sophomore album Rotting Empire, out now on Dead Truth Recordings. Stream the “Snuff out the Light” music video today exclusively at revolver mag and below, check out an additional Rotting Empire song and lyric video, “Summoning Spirits” and the full stream of the record below.
Vocalist Xavier Vicuna comments: “‘Snuff’ was filmed and directed by the Cuartas brothers, the same dudes who brought you the ‘Isolate’ video. We just felt comfortable going back to them, especially with a more intense location set in place. We wanted to go for a darker and more horror vibe. The brothers really brought our ideas to life. The song is about alcohol abuse, buried under a plethora of metaphors.”
Over the course of the last three years, Forty Winters has toured extensively in the U.S., Puerto Rico, South America and Central America, plotting, calculating, and culminating its brand of pissed off, punishing metal. Rotting Empire was recorded by Jesse Kirkbride (Black Tongue, Aversions Crown, Enterprise Earth) at Kirkbride Recordings in Cape Coral, Fla., and features special guest appearances by Chad Ruhlig (For the Fallen Dreams) and Adam Warren (Oceano).

Rotting Empire is the follow up to the 2011 debut Reflection and 2013 ‘Isolation’ EP. In that time, Forty Winters has shared the stage with genre heavyweights like Suicide Silence, Terror, Emmure, A Day To Remember, Stick To Your Guns, Shai Hulud and more.
