Decapitated are set to drop their new album Anticult next month via Nuclear Blast. Ahead of the eight-song LP's July 7 release date, the Polish extreme metal quartet have shared an intense, occult-inspired clip for "Earth Scar." Director Dariusz Szermanowicz whisks Decapitated away to the wilderness for an epic performance atop a cliff. Later, the group relocate their jam session to a foreboding, shadowy room. As if that wasn't intense enough, Szermanowicz splices their performance with scenes depicting shamanic rituals and fiery witches. Check it out below.

"I have always drawn influences from all spectrums of metal and this song, and our new record, really reflect those influences," says Decapitated guitarist Wacław "Vogg" Kiełtyka. "Much like 'Never,' this song has been designed to crush on a stage, and we can't wait to add it to our set. Rasta wrote the lyrics with a lot of metaphorical content dealing with touring: the opposing lifestyles from the 'normal' day-to-day of being at home versus being on the road, and seeing our 'tribe' interacting with the music, and the almost restorative qualities of that!"

Speaking of the road: Shortly after Anticult's release, Decapitated will embark on a North American tour. Thy Art Is Murder, Fallujah and Ghost Bath will provide support for the trek, which begins August 20 at Pittsburgh's Rex Theater and runs through late September.
