Faustian debut video for 'Birth of Apparitions'

Watch the video exclusively on Lambgoat


Official press release:

Louisiana death metal trio Faustian has premiered its debut music video, "Birth of Apparitions," via Lambgoat. The band's self-titled debut EP is out now via Black Lion Records.

Vocalist Dallas Smith shared:

Our goal was to make the video as gritty as the song and subject matter. With help from the filmmaker, we were able to incorporate creative visuals that tell the story behind the track. The final product is just as bleak as we hoped it would be.

Directed by Dusty Cooper (Troy Bennett's Graveyard Lips), the video sets a violent scene in which the victim (Steven Ban) meets his fate before his reawakening as something else entirely. Recorded by James Whitten (Thou, High on Fire, Eyehategod), Faustian delivers a unique style of blackened death that seamlessly shifts from razor-sharp maelstrom to dirge-like grime as the three-piece meld violent urgency and claustrophobic atmosphere into a frenzied sonic catharsis.

The album's haunting cover art is a 1870 painting from Polish artist Adam Chmielowski titled "Death and conflagration from the Disaster triptych."

Faustian is out now on all major streaming platforms and on CD worldwide via Black Lion Records. More information regarding vinyl will appear at a later date. Purchase "Birth of Apparitions" here.

Not bad. But whats up with the minute and a half of stupid noise in the beginning? Also why post a blurb about the cover art with no picture of the cover art?
