DEADLY CARNAGE Wonderfully Mix Celestial Visuals With Post-Black Metal Textures on "Ifene"
The Cosmos consumed black metal over the last couple of years. Seemingly more and more projects turned their eyes from hellish landscapes to astral planes. Whether it's overt cosmology or using the stars as an allegory, there is more of a celestial flair in a typically blasphemous genre. For Italy's Deadly Carnage, they use some of these ideas as a glue for their mixture of black and post-metal. Their music itself is quite ethereal, so it is ultimately fitting they used this metaphor for their talks on existentialism.
Their newest album, Through the Void, Above the Suns, arrived back in March. However, to celebrate the impending release of the album's double vinyl, they created a brand new video for one of the tracks. The nearly eight-minute "Ifene" got the video treatment to accommodate its immersive and almost dream-like traits. The video's animations are entrancing and bolster some of the already hypnotic, blackened riffing and ambient sections.
Watch the video below and snag a copy of the CD or pre-order the vinyl from Snow Wave Records.
