Doom metal duo Vile Creature have just debuted a video for ‘Glory, Glory! Apathy Took Helm!’, the title-track from their soon-to-be-released third album.
Speaking of the video, guitarist/vocalist/percussionist KW commented.
“Andrew Notsch, who created the video, has such a keen eye for finding footage that suits what is happening sonically and creates a texture and layer to the song of it’s own. We first worked with him on the video backdrop for our Roadburn 2019 set and were pining to collaborate with him again on something. We are thrilled that it ended up being this video and the subsequent ones that are available in limited quality on the deadest of formats.
This song is the most cathartic, personally satisfying song I have ever written from start-to-finish, it honestly feels like the song we were meant to put out there. The first half was co-written with Laurel Minnes, a phenomenal vocalist and musician who we worked with on our EP A Pessimistic Doomsayer. Laurel, along with her band Minuscule, which comprises a full choir, made our grandiose idea a reality. Tanya Byrne of Bismuth also contributed the perfect companion instrumentation to the first half in her piano and organ, really pushing the whole song with forward momentum towards its latter half. We could not be more proud of this title track.”
