Meshing electronic and industrial, SKYND, the creative concoction of vocalist Skynd and producer/multi-instrumentalist Father, have created something both captivating and haunting. The scary-good tunes continue to roll out and lead to the eventual release of the band’s debut EP, Chapter 1. Today, following the lead single “Elisa Lam” and more recent “Gary Heidnik” featuring Korn frontman Jonathan Davis, we’re thrilled to drop the terrifying video for “Richard Ramirez”.

The morbid new mini-movie is the third in a trilogy of serial killer-inspired clips and not for the faint of heart. (Of course, you can always wuss out and watch the censored version which, out of spite, we’re not even going to link to. You can Google it.) Dark with implied violence, the creepy is totally rad.

Speaking of the song, the band left us with these haunting words… “Ramirez once said, ‘Lucifer never felt the need to be seen but in everyone’s soul he can be felt.’ Skynd has somehow the same message; we are all capable of doing inhuman cruelties.”

Before you head off, check out the track “Gary Heidnik” featuring Jonathan Davis.
