Gothic metal band, The Sixth Chamber, has released the official music video for “Entrance to the Cold Waste.” Filmed in the wastelands of Death Valley, California, “Entrance to the Cold Waste” features Stanton Lavey (grandson of Church of Satan founder/Satanic Bible author, Anton Lavey, whose character featured prominently in this season’s American Horror Story) and belly dancing by Mahafsoun.
Lead vocalist Rahne Pistor said of the song:
With ‘Entrance to the Cold Waste’, we sought to create a portal of escape from the drab norms of daily reality we tend to become trapped in and provide passageway to a nightmare realm of sublime dreamscapes. I wanted to create a world as it exists within my deeper consciousness rather than as it seems in the confines of the waking world.
About The Sixth Chamber:
The Sixth Chamber is a library in hell where all the world’s darkest secrets are kept in neatly arranged volumes on shelves. Band leader Rahne Pistor came up with the concept in 2001 inspired by the writings of 18th century mystic, William Blake. Since that time, the band has accumulated a long and storied recording legacy with gothic, metal, experimental, blues, psychedelic, fantasy/horror soundtrack, and other musical and poetic influences evident in their sound. Themes generally focus on the mythic, mystic, and phantasmic.
About Stanton Lavey:
Stanton Lavey is the grandson of Church of Satan founder and Satanic Bible author Anton Lavey. The resemblance to his iconic grandfather is uncanny. Stanton spends his time promoting Anton Lavey’s legacy and related principles of the Laveyan Satanist philosophy.
Mahafsoun, a Persian belly dancer and model, aptly describes herself as an escapist. She became a YouTube sensation as an early adopter of gothic metal bellydance and has shared the stage belly dancing live with revered metal acts including Moonspell, Epica, and Ex Deo. Her style is mired in dark fantasy art, and she is currently one of the most easily recognizable gothic fashion models of today.
