Death And The Maiden “Victory” video

Birdation Port Chalmers

Container port crane machinery towers incongruously over Port Chalmers and its 19th century stone buildings like some over-sized mechanical praying mantis family. Machinery hums and clanks day and night and the diesel engines of visiting container ships thicken the air with their subsonic frequency rumble.

“Victory” by Death And The Maiden uses the noise of the port machinery as its unsettling background ambience. Guitarist Hope Robertson (also of Birdation and Bad Sav) has edited a fittingly disorienting impressionistic video of of the port machinery to accompany the song.
