"Hall Of The Masters" Video Released

Via Earsplit:

Mythological occult metal discoverers ABSU announce the release of their new video (their first in 14 years), produced for the anthem “Hall Of The Masters,” courtesy of this year’s Adult Swim Singles Program. Once again, the band has showcased their signature style of occult black/thrash mythology to dark, new, calculating territories. The audio was recorded earlier this year at Nomad Recording Studios in Carrollton, Texas and mixed by J.T. Longoria. (King Diamond, Solitude Aeternus), the video for the song then filmed by director Daniel Garcia.

Stated ABSU vocalist/drummer Proscriptor on the creation of the visual magnum opus: “’Hall Of The Masters’ is a conceptual video concerning the wedlock between a speculum of apparitions and the rite of transfiguration. The mortality featured in the video is unexpectedly visited by the Elder Ones and swept from Earth by the form of the Master. Every dream of man and woman is superlatively coiled by the Lamia!”
