ARSIS recently wrapped up the music video shoot for the song “Scornstar” with director Scott Hansen (UNEARTH, CARNIFEX, AS BLOOD RUNS BLACK). "When you film a metal video, and the special effects artists are actually excited about the amount of carnage, you know you've done it correctly," commented Hansen. The song comes from the group’s upcoming fifth full-length album entitled Unwelcome. Artwork was handled once again by longtime collaborator Mark Riddick. The follow up to their 2010 release Starve for the Devil, will be released on April 30, 2013 in North America via Nuclear Blast records.
