ICYMI: SKYND Unleashes the Mind of “Richard Ramirez” in Music Video!

Electronic-infused industrial duo SKYND have dropped their third single and video — “Richard Ramirez.” The song is the third in a trilogy inspired by notorious and nefarious American serial killers. The clip premiered via Pure Grain Audio and is now also viewable here.

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 a viciousness unparalleled.

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 and premiered via Metal Hammer.

SKYND is the dark creative outlet and alter ego of its lead singer, Skynd, and longtime producer and multi-instrumentalist Father. SKYND write songs and take inspiration from inexplicable and brutal criminal cases and the mystery surrounding unsolved deaths.

Explaining the music, Father said, “The music picks up this concept of the boundaries of humanity perfectly. That’s why her vocals are so defamiliarized. You can tell this is a human being, but it sounds grotesquely inhuman. Listening to these tracks, you should feel like you’re in a tiny room and the walls are closing in from all sides. In her lyrics, SKYND is the perpetrator and us as listeners are cornered victims. Nobody can escape this kind of dynamic.”

SKYND represent the next level of aural immersion, intermingling sound, visuals, and a warning worth heeding. Explaining the concept behind the music, SKYND said, “All human beings are capable of cruelty and we have to keep the inner animal in check. We’re here to provide a different perspective on the psyche to maybe answer some questions.”
