Darren Michael Boyd Releases New Instrumental Music Video 'Making A Homunculus'

The Ottawa, Ontario Canada musician has released the music video for "Making A Homunculus."

Rock/Metal Guitarist Extraordinaire, Darren Michael Boyd continues to build on the momentum he began with his debut solo album, "Lifting the Curse." Recorded and released after a life-altering accident, the album introduced the music world to Darren's incredible talent as both a songwriter and instrumentalist. That album spawned the single, "The Earth Is BFlat," which is approaching 70K Spotify plays, to date.

In just one month of release, Boyd's sophomore effort, "Wonders Of the Invisible World" has already racked up immense critical praise for the growth and polish shown on the album. The title track has gained over 30K plays in that time, while the video has been streamed more than 7K times on youtube. Now, Boyd returns with a brand new video for "Making a Homunculus."

Filmed at Vibration Studios, just outside of Ottawa, the sparse video with the blood-red background features Boyd in all-out shred mode.
