Blackened is the fifth and final single from Death Flower off their debut album Eviscerating Sons of Chaos. The single was released on August 30 2000, following the album's June release. It is chronologically followed by Drug of Life, released nineteen months later as the first single from 2002's Soulsucker.
At the beginning of the video for "Blackened", featured on the album, a hand bursts out of a pile of ash and then the band begins to play as ash falls down like snow onto them and their instruments. Halfway through the song, the band leave the ash-room and step out into the open where the sun ecplipses. Two of the band members (Luke and Jeremy Johnston) step forward and drop their instruments. The video then ends.
