Happy Orbit Culture Day! The Swedish death-metallers dropped their fourth studio album today, and they've just released a fresh music video for its title track, "Descent."
Packed with fat hooks and Akerfeldt-ian guttural vocals, "Descent" is another massive track for one of the decade's biggest death metal standouts. Orbit Culture even throw in some beautiful piano and strings before the song's epic finale.
The video, on the other hand, is fucking terrifying — a bona fide mini-horror movie that's packed with gory, freaky visuals. Watch above via YouTube.
"With the video for 'Descent,' you are fully engaged in the madness," frontman Niklas Karlsson explained. "It's the pillar of feeling disgusted and chained by your own obsessive desires, whatever it may be. You are stuck in your own castle of self hate."
"We wanted this album to sound as big and aggressive as possible, while maintaining a pleasant listening experience. I took a lot of inspiration from the movie Dune, not because of the story or anything, but because the combination of imagery and music created this vast picture and we wanted to convey that epic feel with this new album."
