Floridian doomsters Bleeth have made the most of their three-year career since splintering from their former band Astrokats in 2015. With four releases under their belt including this year's debut on Anti Language Records Geomancer, the trio continue to build a steady name for themselves in the fuzzed-out scope of modern doom. Having premiered their crushingly beautiful track "Divulging Souls" earlier this year, Bleeth are back with a new heavy single and fittingly dark companion video for "Revenant."
Directed by Ana Traviño, the clip follows a black-clad dancer on her cathartic journey through a desert-like wooded setting. Running in what looks like disconnected, backwards movement, the emotive performance cultivates feelings of demonic possession and terror in the unknown as the heroine explores among the trees, finding some sort of seed or dangerous fruit in the process before running for her life.
The action follows the instrumental track's cyclical segments of careful guitar melodies and anxiously spare drums interspersed with pulverizing riffs and dense breakouts. Bleeth's singer Lauren Palma may give her voice a rest on this track, but the aural narrative delivers more than enough to make this short film worth the watch. Of the clip, Bleeth ask, "A petrified tree whispers in the shadows, the rising force of a tempest is at your back, the rush of anxiety before action, the future is unclear but, the act is imminent. A moment in flux. Will this knowledge lift your veil of naivety?"
