The disturbing nine and a half minute clip was directed by Michael Panduro (Saint Vitus, Cephalic Carnage) and comes off the band’s full-length, Demonocracy, which was released earlier this year via Metal Blade Records.
Founding frontman Jonny Davey commented on the video: “‘Tarnished Gluttony’ originally runs off the idea of blind faith into our government and monetary system. The director ran with the idea and spliced it with a H.P. Lovecraftian twist. The video streams the fascination of religion and the actions people justify in the name of religion, and this video is a spin on the old biblical tale of Abraham and Isaac, however, set in the world of Lovecraftian mythology. The point is, acting blindly in faith to a Christian deity is just as absurd as worshiping squid like monsters from space who live under the sea.”
Panduro adds: “As a commercial director, I’m a complete failure. The band asked for just one thing and I couldn’t deliver. Indeed, this video has no boobs.”
