Milan-based metalcore band Total Recall releases today the video for Never Again, third extract from the LP Always Together released worldwide on July 16th, 2021 by Australian label 1054 Records.
Never Again is the result of a deep introspective journey between the darkest and most hidden parts of our personality. Directed by Brace Beltempo, the music video recalls and further develops this concept – as opposed to the other singles released by Total Recall so far. In fact, the energetic band performance scenes are interspersed with bloody shots of frontman Andrea “Ronda” Rondanini and model May Padme.
Regarding the single, singer Andrea “Ronda” Rondanini declares “Never Again is like a really bad trip. You are going to be dragged into the deepest void”. To this, guitarist Stefano “Bleed” Bigoni adds: “Never Again have always been my go to song off the new record. It’s brutal and very percussive, and it moves a lot of air when played live. It is definitely the song that produces the most severe damage among the crowd in a live situation. I absolutely love it!“
Always Together has been recorded at the SPVN Studios, under the supervision of producer Stefano “Orkid” Santi – Cripple Bastards, Forgotten Tomb, Hiss from the Moat -.
Most remarkable about the birth of Total Recall is the deep personal friendship and respect between its founding members.
Vocals are performed by Andrea “Ronda” Rondanini – Rise Above Dead, Crushed to Dust -, while guitars are masterfully played by Stefano “Stef” Anderloni – Face your Enemy, Die Trying, Traces of You, K-again – and Stefano “Bleed” Bigoni – Rise Above Dead, Thunder Brigade -. Bass player Luca “Pigo” De Simone – Embrace Destruction, Samaritan, K-again – and drummer Daniele “Danny” Calleri – Embrace Destruction, L’Oceano Sopra, Monalisabay – takes care of the rhythmic section.
