"I'm on the edge of the blade," Prayers frontman Rafael Reyes, aka Leafar Seyer, proclaims in the cholo-goth duo's new music video.
After releasing a mini-documentary about their collaboration with Christian Death in October, Prayers surprised with the November release of their first major label album, "Baptism of Thieves." And now, they've dropped their video for single "Edge of the Blade," which is all kinds of sacrilegious.
Directed by Patrick Wilcox, the black-and-white production features abandoned churches, slithering snakes and Reyes' Prayers collaborator, Dave Parley, donning full Christ regalia. Meanwhile, Reyes declares, "I'm on the edge of the blade / Carving 66 on my flesh."
He might be missing a number there, but that's all right, I'm sure the duo more than makes up for it with album sales. Buy "Baptism of Thieves" here.
