Watch Blue Eyed Christ's "Freakshow" Official Video:
"As to be expected the "Freakshow" Video Shoots in Los Angeles were Epic and Chaotic. We started at a big Goth Club’s party the week before Halloween shooting renegade style from the inside. The director, Eric Zimmerman (NIN, Ministry, Soundgarden), got kicked out pretty quickly cause someone complained he was shooting up girl’s skirts, which I’d love to say was true but it wasn’t. Then he got attacked by a hipster on drugs in a Jockey costume outside the club.
This was just the beginning cause all the Freaks came out for the Halloween Video Shoot at one of the largest public gatherings in the world,The Santa Monica Blvd Halloween Party. They shut off the streets of Hollywood for the Freaks and we captured it all! Everything from Real Girl Fights, to Fetish Goth Freaks, to Transexuals is packed into this video. Welcome to the Freakshow!" - Blue Eyed Christ

About Blue Eyed Christ:Blue Eyed Christ is the Industrial Rock Project of established Mixer/Producer/Engineer John D. Norten. John has worked with many of the biggest artists in music helping them achieve their visions (Cee Lo, Dr. Dre, Lady Gaga, Taboo of the Black Eyed Peas).
In contrast, Blue Eyed Christ is 100% John’s artistic vision. That vision is a dark, powerful, and visceral combination of heavy electronic rock mixed with personal lyrics and just the right amount of hooks and noise.
In 1991, while still in his teens, Chicago's John D. Norten signed his first international recording contract under the name Blue Eyed Christ to Europe's infamous KK Records. The first Album, Leaders + Followers, was released that same year. The album received universally excellent reviews worldwide in numerous publications including Alternative Press. Blue Eyed Christ still enjoys a loyal following today and Leaders + Followers is considered an EBM classic.
In 1995 John wrote the second Blue Eyed Christ Album, Crash. At the same time he assembled an intense live band that helped further create a buzz throughout the music industry.
In 1996 John moved to Los Angeles to further his studio career with other established artists. Still desiring his own creative outlet, 2002 saw the release of the third Blue Eyed Christ album, American Whore.
Now, 12 Years since American Whore John resurrects Blue Eyed Christ once again to show the world his own unique brand of songwriting, production, and studio savvy. The new album, A Rush and a Thrill, is a whirlwind ride straight into the psyche of John D. Norten and the world of Blue Eyed Christ.
