Last week, Clifton, New Jersey-based melodic metal outfit JULIUS SEIZURE released their new single ‘Sixth and Falling’ along with a B-side, ‘Second Coming’, via MetalInsider.net. The tracks are cut from their August 2013 release, Trials. Today, the band has teamed up with Shakefire to unleash the official music video for ‘Sixth and Falling’, directed by Patrick Canavan.
“JULIUS SEIZURE is one of those bands with unlimited energy, which is why I like working with them,” states direct Patrick Canavan.“They got out of a five hour car ride with five guys crammed into one Jeep, and blew the crew and I away on the first take. You don't see guys with this level of intensity often.”
“The concept of this video revolves around a demon character named “rage”. We see his awakening, and follow him through the night as he begins his hunt for human prey,” adds Patrick Canavan. “During this we will be flashing to another character I’ve been calling “The Painter”. His sanity level is dropping rapidly as he tries to finish his painting. I don't want to give anything away just yet, but I will say that Rage and The Painter will converge at the end for an intense closing scene.”

Formed in November 2011, JULIUS SEIZURE strives to achieve the perfect balance between melody and brutality, with a sound that is wildly unpredictable yet carefully crafted. Comprised of the former members of some of New Jersey's most popular unsigned metal bands including Will Killmore, Simensis, and The Annealing, founding members Steve Toth (Guitars), Anthony Smeragliuolo (Guitars), Brian Daniell (Bass), and Kyle Wilson (Drums) quickly got to work on their debut EP Beware the Ides of March, which released in June 2012.
Produced by guitarist Steve Toth at the band's own studio, Beware the Ides of March was met with much critical acclaim and JULIUS SEIZURE quickly generated a devoted fan base with multiple U.S. tours in summer 2012. The debut single ‘Oxy(Generation)’ and music video, directed by guitarist Anthony Smeragliuolo, received extensive airplay via Sirius/XM Liquid Metal, WSOU, and many blogs, websites, and social media based features. Their 2013 follow up, the aforementioned Trials EP, met similar positive reviews and popularity.
JULIUS SEIZURE has established itself as a leader of the New Jersey metal scene, and 2014 will see the band achieve a new level of excellence.
