Artist MK Ultra releases video for hit single “Killing Angels”


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 
PRLog (Press Release) - Feb. 11, 2014 - Solo artist MK Ultra (Travis Szendrei) releases the video for his acclaimed second single, “Killing Angels”.  The video is representative of Szendrei’s experiences during the time he wrote and recorded his debut album “Documentation” (released 11/13 on Universal affiliated label Visionary Music).  The dark imagery and disturbing subject matter is inspired by true events, like the near fatal car crash that left him in constant pain.

The video was shot in the California desert using effects that echoed the feeling of drug-addled despair that Szendrei had experienced in the wake of the accident.  Pills, guns and death are central thematic motifs in the “Killing Angels” video.  MK Ultra, named for the CIA mind control experiment, sets the dark and catchy song to a bleak backdrop.  Other elements of the video include haunting violin melodies, aggressive vocals and time manipulation.

Originally posted on YouTube, the video gained tens of thousands of views before being taken down due to complaints about the violent imagery portrayed.  “All the imagery used in the video was there for a reason. It wasn’t meant to offend anyone, but it’s understandable that someone who didn’t know my story could take things the wrong way.  Regardless of public opinion, I consider it a portrayal of how I was feeling, feeling being the operative word here.  It was purely art.  I certainly don’t go around carrying a gun, but for the purposes of self expression I needed to use some rather extreme imagery” says Szendrei.  YouTube eventually allowed the video to be re-posted, after being contacted by Visionary Music and fans of “Documentation”.

The video can be seen at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FR5xFRg_SlA
