Verlorener (Ex-Chimaira, Etc.) Premiere “Devil In The Room” Video

Verlorener, the project featuring Emil Werstler (Dååth, ex-Chimaira), has premiered a new video for “Devil In The Room,“ via Premier Guitar. You can check that out below:

Werstler commented:

“I went down to Atlanta and did a 14-hour shoot on a Sunday, and they had what they needed. It’s cool to see something that ancient—that digitized found footage—with glitching and all this weird stuff happening.

The footage is a mixture of 35 mm, 16 mm, and 8 mm test film, with models and actors, combined with recently found 8 mm reels the director’s grandfather shot in the ’40s, ’50s, and ’60s.

They embody the Americana era that no longer exists and wasn’t as quaint as it seemed underneath the surface. Although this era is often the collective, romantic fantasy, we can neither recreate it, nor do we truly crave that way of living 50 years later.

We all have the capability to be the devil in the room in our personal relationships as they fall to pieces.”

Verlorener (Dååth, ex-Chimaira) Premiere New Song “Devil In The Room”

Emil Werstler (Dååth, ex-Chimaira) has shared a new track from his Verlorener project called “Devil In The Room.” This song is from his debut album, which will be released on April 6.

Werstler said the following about the song:

“The proclaimed idea of our current musical climate as being ‘impossible’ has led to the creation of safe music with a lack of depth in narrative. The creation of this record was inspired by my general lack of interest towards what music has become. It seems to be more about the social currency of just being involved, not creating something new.

The debut track is entitled ‘Devil In The Room‘ and is heavily influenced by the harmony of Manouche Jazz and late 80’s era Depeche Mode. It was the final song written for the record and features a cello trio over beats with a solid guitar performance through out. Although the song is unique instrumentally, ‘Devil In The Room‘ is an accurate depiction of the record’s sound as a whole.”

He also added the following about his plans for live shows:

“There will be live shows starting in April and beyond. Aside from performing the music on the record, there will be a fair amount of improvisation to keep things less conventional than a run of the mill rock show. The band I have chosen is integral to the sound and will represent the music easily as I feel they are the best in the world at what they do.”
