Is there a better way to spend Good Friday than with a goblet of blood and some black metal? If you’re not already there, get there now and take in the haunting sounds of Edmonton’s Idoltary‘s new track, “Clefs au Chambre de Tristêsse.” Black metal is known for being notoriously esoteric and Idolatry’s single is only available digitally (to stream) through their music . The video was created by NVS Productions from Nashville, Tennessee, who has also produced videos for Wormreich (U.S.), Hades (Norway), and Borgne (Switzerland). The video showcases a terrifying nightmare of mirrored figures moving eerily in the darkness. Watch the video in the player above.
About the track, Idolatry said:
‘Clefs au Chambre de Tristêsse’ began as an unholy pact between Unrest and ourselves. It is a conjuration in french that weaves a tale of someone who has prepared a room to end their life in. Meticulously set up to capture the ultimate failure of hopes, lingerings and plans. A trembling hand holds the key towards the door… Knowing inside is finite.
The track’s introduction is sung in French while the second portion is a spoken word poem in English constructed by Lörd Matzigkeitus (vocals) called “Once Thought Of Webs.” The band decided not to add this song to a future full length or EP, and instead as a stand-alone track. When asked to comment the band simply stated, “We have chosen to release this exclusively on limited run vinyl, hand numbered by the band. There will be no other versions available besides these and this decrepit, cryptic video by NVS Productions. Be haunted and suffer…..”
‘Infection Born of Ending’ a 7″ split with Columbus, Ohio, black metal group Unrest featuring the unique Idolatry track is available to purchase through BigCartel. There will only be 40, hand numbered copies available. The split is available for pre-order April 3, 2015, and will be available June 2015.
