Washington, D.C. doom & roll killers Ilsa have just dropped a brutal new video for their ripping single "Old Maid," from their recent show of force Corpse Fortress (out now via Relapse Records). The black-and-white clip, which appears to be inspired by the Salem witch trials, features a dour day at the gallows complete with witches, spells, heathens, beheadings and even a hanging. It's a cruel reminder of the brutal history of our past, as well as an excellent excuse to hear a positively merciless steamroller of a track flatten everything in its path. Fans of Celtic Frost, Hellhammer, Cianide, Integrity, Coffins, Eyehategod and more are gonna love this.
Check out the video above for the first time and catch the Washington, D.C. band on tour at the dates below.
