DIRE PERIL Are “Always Right Here” In Their New Music Video


November 9th marked the release of the long-awaited full-length album from the Bay Area sci-fi power metal band Dire Peril, entitled The Extraterrestrial Compendium, the first LP from the band, which is a concept album where each song is about a science fiction movie. Today we bring you the exclusive premiere of their new music video for the song “Always Right Here”!

Guitarist Jason Ashcraft had this to say about it:

“We are pleased to release our video for one of the slower tracks of the album. This video, though not as intense as “Blood in the Ice”, was a lot of fun to do. We wanted to keep this one simple and give a more in the studio feel. We captured that really well I think.”

Here’s all the gear the band used to record the song:


  • AKGP220 Microphone
  • UR22 Steinberg Interface

Rhythm Guitars:

  • Gibson Les Paul 97 Custom, reamped with 5150 boosted with TS9 into Two Notes Audio Torpedo Live


  • Fender Jazz Bass
  • Amp & DI track blended, reamped with Two Notes Audio Le Bass preamp into Torpedo Live

Lead Guitars:

  • Jackson Kelly loaded with Seymour Duncan Full Shred pickup (SH-10) in the bridge position, Dunlop heavy core strings
  • Two Notes Audio Le Lead preamp into 5150 Power Amp section only via FX loop and then into Torpedo Live

Mixed in Pro Tools 8 HD with Focal CM65 Monitors, Audio-Technica ATH-M50 headphones
