This is the fantastically weird and wonderful accompanying video for Boy 8-Bits new single The Keep. Wonderfully strange and surreal, and almost sounding like a sound track to an 80’s arcade game, The Keep was inspired by Michael Mann’s movie of the same name; which itself is based on the novel by F. Paul Wilson.
“I’m strangely fascinated by the movie, which is about Nazi’s taking over a citadel in Romania who due to their greed, accidently unleash an ancient evil which has been contained within its walls,” says Boy 8-Bit. “The movie isn’t particularly good, reportedly due to the studio forcing Mann to make savage cuts to most of the film. But it has a really strange atmosphere – with its excess of 80’s sounds and visuals (particularly the ‘Awakenings’ scene where the character Glaeken learns of the demon’s release).”
