LIGHTNING SWORDS OF DEATH: 'Baphometic Chaosium' Video Released
- Jan. 23, 2013
"Baphometic Chaosium", the first-ever music video from Los Angeles underground black metallers LIGHTNING SWORDS OF DEATH, can be seen below. The clip was directed by co-founder and lead vocalist Autarch (a.k.a. the metal illustrator Farron Loathing). The project, which also marks Autarch's directorial debut, is the result of a partnership between Farron Loathing and Mortichrome Films. It is described by its creator as "a psycho-dramatic interpretation of the Mass of Chaos and the invocation of Baphomet as performed by a collective of ritual performance artists."
"Baphometic Chaosium" is the title track of LIGHTNING SWORDS OF DEATH's third full-length album, which was released on January 22 via Metal Blade Records. The band has appropriately become a five-piece (completing the pentacle) with the recruitment of lead guitarist "Inverted" Chris Velez, before it began developing what is described as "devotional work", dedicated to their patron god — a mind-altering experience compelled by the embodiment of chaos, death and ecstasy. To record the psychedelic devilry, they returned to Trench Studios, with John Haddad again seeing to the engineering, with Roskva producing, no doubt to the delight of the tributed horned deity.
