Cleveland metal band Eternal Legacy has just debuted its first-ever video for the song ‘The Dead Matter,” from its 2009 sophomore album, Lifeless Alive, which was released on Clevland-based Auburn Records.

The video can be seen at, the video site of Germany’s Wacken Open Air Festival, where Eternal Legacy will be playing on August 6.

The song appears on the DVD and soundtrack album for the horror/fantasy film The Dead Matter, directed by Ed Douglas of Midnight Syndicate, the ambient/instrumental act known for creating Halloween haunted-house music. They’ll be released July 30.

Eternal Legacy’s video, which features clips from the film, was directed by guitarist Joe Fortunato of fellow Auburn band Venomin James. Keeping it all in the family, drummer Mark Klein from yet another Auburn act, Breaker, edited and produced the movie dialogue clips that appear in the video.

According to Auburn head Bill Peters, “The Dead Matter” is the label’s first “official” music video. Peters himself makes a fleeting cameo appearance. So does Mushroomhead’s Jeff Hatrix.

“If you look close, you can see me in the opening movie clip in the music video — my two seconds of fame!” says Peters. “A zombie bumps into me in a bar. Jeff Hatrix is in the next scene. He is on a couch with girls. I get the zombie. Jeff gets the girls! My life story ... “

Eternal Legacy are currently mixing their third album, Seeking No Peace, which will be released on Auburn this fall. —Anastasia Pantsios
