Modern metal powerhouse LIVING DEAD GIRL has revealed a video for “Poltergeist,” the haunting fourth single from the forthcoming Exorcism debut.
“This song is very different from the first three singles, and we love the ‘90s industrial vibe,” says vocalist Molly Rennick. “The music video is the perfect visual to accompany the song, and I’m really in love with how it turned out.
The creepy horror movie aesthetic combined with the choir vocals make for a video that people are telling me gives them chills – the exact reaction I hoped for.

On Exorcism’s 11 banging tracks, Rennick channels her inner “goth girl gone bad” attitude. From the raging, down-tuned riffs of the title track and “Worship Me,” to the infectious, singalong chorus of “Villain,” to the enticing, taunting melodies of “Beautiful” and “Alive,” Rennick commands your full attention.
The Pit writes, “You can say this about LIVING DEAD GIRL: they know what they’re doing. Led by band founder Molly Remnick, the Canadian spooky groove metal act have their sonic profile down to a T: syrupy, hard-hitting riffs; staccato rhythms with driving forward momentum; and Remnick at the center of it all belting out layered, goth-girl-you-can’t-ignore vocals.
Fans ofIn This MomentandIce Nine Killswill immediately know what to do with this, while newcomers will be inexorably drawn into the album’s forcefully accessible sounds.
Formed in 2017, LIVING DEAD GIRL’s style is a unique combination of goth-inspired heavy metal meets fellow Canadian frontwoman Avril Lavigne, possessing an amalgam of genres including rock, metal, industrial, goth, pop and punk rock.
The music perfectly encapsulates Rennick’s personality, which she admits is a dichotomy of “one wears baby pink and Hello Kitty and listens to pop music, and the other a goth girl in fishnet stockings who listens to dark heavy metal.
The 21-year-old Rennick’s amazing vocal range sees her seamlessly switching from taunting, high-pitched croons, to menacing, harsh barks, to haunting growls with relative ease.
