Vancouver, Canada - Doug Harrison, vocalist for Canada-based
progressive rockers FEN, has launched a solo project called Slug
Comparison, and the debut release is a music video for the song
"Bringer of Doom."
A dark collaboration between Harrison and Swedish director Peter
Wiholm, the video depicts a woman (actor Kim Arklie) who slits her
wrists and lowers herself into a bathtub, then enters the dream-like
world of her subconscious. In the shadows of this world a mysterious
man (actor Brad Hammerstron) keeps appearing, and the woman finds
herself running for safety.
"The story wasn't what I had in mind when I wrote the song," says
Harrison, "But when Peter came up with the idea, I was impressed by
how well it matched the lyrics, so we went ahead with making it."
"Bringer of Doom" is the first of a group of songs written at the same
time as FEN's Ripple Music release, Of Losing Interest. Harrison says,
"Between writing sessions with the band, I found I had more energy to
keep going, and more ideas kept coming out of me, so I'd work on those
at home, piecing them together on my computer. Eventually I had enough
of them that I realized I needed a new project."
For "Bringer of Doom" Harrison wrote and performed and/or programmed
all of the instruments with the help of long-time FEN producer, Mike
Southworth of Creativ Studios. The song is available for $1 at
Progressive Rock & Progressive Metal - E-ZINE
