"The Sightless", the new video from LAETHORA, the Swedish death/grind band featuring DARK TRANQUILLITY guitarist Niklas Sundin, can be seen below. The song comes off the group's second album, "The Light In Which We All Burn", which came out in May 2010 via The End Records.
The video was created by Sundin, who comments: "Releasing the first promo video two years after an album is out is a bit unorthodox, but some things are worth waiting for.
"I started working on the 'The Sightless' clip a long time ago, and the original plan was to have it ready by the time 'The Light In Which We All Burn' was released in May 2010. However, for various reasons, the project got postponed, and it wasn't until recently that I found time to put the finishing touches together.
"So — we're very pleased to finally present this visual counterpart to what's probably the most bleak and dystopian song on the album. Enjoy!"
Mastered by Peter In de Betou (DARK FUNERAL, MESHUGGAH, HYPOCRISY), "The Light In Which We All Burn" is an epic thirteen-track album taking into account all of the members' eclectic tastes in music, featuring violent and powerful death/grind metal performed with intense passion and ferocity.
From the opening calm-before-the-storm beginning of "Ekpyrosis" to the thrashing rage of "World Deluge" and the open-chord ecstasy of "Humanae", the album truly shines in its diversity and dedication. The instrumentation is flawlessly executed with an organic and vibrant approach far from today's sterile extreme metal delivery.
LAETHORA's debut album, "March of the Parasite", was released in February 2007 via The End Records.
According to a press release, the band — which also features THE PROVENANCE members Joakim Rosén (guitar), Jonnie Täll (bass) and Joel Lindell (drums) — plays "aggressive music firmly rooted in the death/grind tradition, yet challenging and innovative."
