OATH TO VANQUISH: 'Executive Onslaught' Video Posted Online

Lebanese death metallers OATH TO VANQUISH have unveiled their first-ever video clip for the track "Executive Onslaught" from their debut album. It has been posted online at YouTube.com. The clip was directed and produced by U.S. filmmaker Vince Brusio and features footage taken from their European tour in September 2006, sketches by U.S. artist Robert S. Connett, as well as an amalgam of imagery depicting political events surrounding their native Middle East.

Commented Elias van Quish: "This video epitomizes our views about the futility of the politics of today, and whilst some political figures can be loved and adored by many, a more cautionary account is depicted here. Amazingly, Vince has managed to create a visual for the lyrical concepts behind the song. It shows where we're from, the reality of the war and conflicts that we've reluctantly lived through last summer, and alas continue to rage throughout much of our region today. Most importantly, it captures the resentment we have for the political climate of this region with its inability to rise above ideological and religious differences, and self-serving agendas."

"Executive Onslaught" is taken off OATH TO VANQUISH's debut album, "Applied Schizophrenic Science", which was released by Grindethic Records in 2006.

OATH TO VANQUISH has been described as "regurgitating a vicious, bone-crushing and twisted concoction of brutal death garnished with gore/grind, whilst somehow managing to blend in an evil melodic tinge, all added for good measure."
