Electronic-infused industrial duo, Skynd, have released their third single and video, Richard Ramirez. The song is the third in a trilogy inspired by notorious and nefarious American serial killers and unsolved crime.
The track and video nod to the infamous Southern California butcher Richard Ramirez, also known as “The Night Stalker”. Ramirez attacked his victims after dark and with an unparalleled viciousness.
The song and its accompanying visual are dark, creepy, and sanguine. They are not for the faint of heart and fall in line with the Skynd aesthetic.
"Ramirez once said, 'Lucifer never felt the need to be seen, but in everyone's soul he can be felt.' Skynd somehow has the same message; we are all capable of doing inhuman cruelties," Skynd stated about the track.
Skynd ‘s debut EP Chapter 1 is out now and includes the previously released singles ‘Elisa Lam’ and ‘Gary Heidnik’ the latter of which features a cameo from Korn frontman and true crime aesthete Jonathan Davis.
