VIDEO: Byzantine “Soul Eraser”
Byzantine, if you have been living in a cave on the moon for the past five years, is back with a new self-titled album due out Feb. 26.
The critically acclaimed West Virginia metal band has been playing shows, taking pre-orders, and just last night premiered their video for “Soul Eraser,” off the new record on nocleansinging.com.
Shot and directed by Matt Maloney in his hometown of Wellsburg, the video gave Byzantine’s fans a chance to get crazy, and gave the band an opportunity to paint an unfortunately all-too-familiar picture of life in 2013 opium war-ravaged West Virginia (NSFW drug abuse) as those we know fall prey to the “black tar lord” singer-guitarist Chris Ojeda describes.
Just an awesome video from an awesome band. We’ll definitely look forward to hearing the new record.
