Accuser launches live video for “Unreal Perception”

- April 25th, 2016 –

Last month, German thrashers Accuser released their new album – and Metal Blade Records debut – The Forlorn Divide. Now, the band is launching a live video for the album track, “Unreal Perception”, which was filmed at the release show a few weeks ago at the Vortex club in Siegen, Germany. To watch the video – and to purchase the record in various formats – please visit:

Accuser comments: “The song is about not real things that affect the human psyche to paranoia. Not real things are among others informative media or video games. The media madness. We had the idea to shoot a video for the song at our release show to capture the live energy of Accuser.”

The Forlorn Divide took shape once again at Gernhart Studio, featuring Accuser‘s trademark blend of powerful thrash metal, virtuoso guitar-work, intricate drum patterns – and of course, gripping, harsh vocals, highlighting the dark recesses of human psyche that are described in the lyrics. After 30 years in the scene, the members of Accuser have perfected their signature style with The Forlorn Divide – a veteran lesson in thrash from Siegen’s stalwarts!
