Ever since fashion guru Amelia Arsenic stepped foot into the industrial and electro scenes with her solo project she has become a mainstay name on Brutal Resonance. Scoring a powerful 9.0 out of 10 on both her 2015 EP "Carbon Black" as well as her early 2018 release "Queen of Risk", there is no wonder as to how she has been able to capture quite a bit of attention in such a short amount of time. 

That being said, Amelia Arsenic does not ever seem to have down time whether she's producing music or travelling globally for her next live show. However, we at Brutal Resonance are proud to present Arsenic's latest masterpiece 'To Love is to Destroy'. Arsenic herself describes herself in the video as a "...Stepford waifu gone haywire in the age of digital hyper-feminity.". While the video may seem odd at first with make-up abound and a man with sleep covers over his eyes being fed, the music video follows tradition with 80s music video fantasies in a domestic horror. 

"Sexbots cry Lichtenstein tears," Arsenic also stated about the video. This is true as you watch the video Arsenic's character goes from loyal servant feeding its lethargic master whatever they please, only to start suffering from what seems like apparent cyberpsychosis. Visions of the bot angrily holding the knife and feeding the man eyeballs only heightens the terror until I began to wonder what was real and what was fake in terms of reality within the video. In either case, you can stream the music video directly below:


'To Love is to Destroy' was written by Amelia Arsenic and Pete Crane, with the mastering done by Ben Bulig and was released by Blind Mice Productions. The single comes off of Arsenic's upcoming EP due out by the end of 2018. The music video was directed by Oliver Heath, while Arsenic was in charge of art direction and makeup using Sugarpill Cosmetics. Color grading was done by Eden Creative with the rope scenes done by Hebari. Production was handled by Heathens Dark Arts and the video featured Zach Heath.

I've been writing for Brutal Resonance since November of 2012 and now serve as the editor-in-chief. I love the dark electronic underground and usually have too much to listen to at once but I love it. I am also an editor at Aggressive Deprivation, a digital/physical magazine since March of 2016. I support the scene as much as I can from my humble laptop.
