ANCIENT VVISDOM Release Official Video For “Never Live Again”Wednesday, 24th July 2013
American Occult rockers ANCIENT VVISDOM have released the official video for the single “Never Live Again”, taken from their sophomore album, Deathlike. Directed by Nathan Daughdrill of Neight Media, the video for “Never Live Again” can be viewed below.
“In this video,” comments vocalist Nathan Opposition, “we wanted to portray horror and the fine art of self-awakening. The executioner stands as the final act of judgment upon your mortal existence. Because we’re all dying to live, I challenge the listeners and viewers to go beyond the realms of their own consciousness to expand the mind into a new positive reality while they still have time. Inspired by Black Sabbath’s ‘Killing Yourself To Live,’ I wrote this song to invoke change. I believe this generation needs to learn a thing or two about their own existence.”
Deathlike is the follow-up to ANCIENT VVISDOM’s 2011 debut “A Godlike Inferno.” That album, supported by a national trek with Ghost during that band’s inaugural U.S. tour, led the band to receive nominations for a Metal Hammer Golden Gods Award (“Best Underground Band”) and a Classic Rock Award (“Best New Band”).
Deathlike was mixed and mastered by engineer/co-producer Jason Buntz (Jet, The Darkness, …Trail of Dead) and Jack Control. Recorded utilizing unusual percussion such as railroad spikes, chains, bullets, and machetes, the album continues to establish the band’s archaic sound while creating an almost apocalyptic atmosphere with the addition of heavy electric guitars.
Next week, ANCIENT VVISDOM will open for doom metal pioneers PENTAGRAM in Austin before embarking on the “Pagan Rites” tour — the band’s first tour since a winter run with ENSLAVED and ROYAL THUNDER — with support from psychedelic rockers THE SAINT JAMES SOCIETY and, on select dates, BLOODY HAMMERS.
