Mount Salem Releases “Lucid” Video

It’s big, it’s fuzzy, it’s heavy, it’s loud, and it’s amazing… unfortunately I’m left with the sense that I’ve heard it all before. It’s great, so I like it and I’ll listen to it again, but it just doesn’t sound terribly original, except for Emily Kopplin’s vocals.

The video for “Lucid,” directed by Dave Skwarczek, basically features Mount Salem playing in a smoky room. Retro? Yes. Suitable for the doom metal style? Yes. Boring? Yes. I get the vibe they’re going for in both the song and the video, and don’t get me wrong, I think “Lucid,” from Mount Salem’s new album Endless is great and highly addictive, and well worth the effort to check out, but I don’t think audiences deserve something without a little innovation.

Have a look at the video in the player above and post your thoughts in the comments section below.
