Occult rock practitioners in Ancient VVisdom are pleased to unveil the official new visual accompaniment to the track "Light Of Lucifer," which is taken from the recently-issued "33" full-length.
The clip, shot in a historically haunted auditorium, premiered at BrooklynVegan at this location, but you can check it out in the player above. Notes Nathan "Opposition" Jochum: "We filmed at one of the most haunted places in Ohio in an auditorium referred to by some as a 'vortex' or 'portal to hell' at the House Of Wills, which is the current location of The New Church Of Satan in Cleveland. Owner, good friend of mine, and Satanic High Priest Eric Freeman allowed us to take part in this ritual and capture the House's energy. 49,000 square feet of decaying beauty, this building is still rich with history as it was an African American Masonic mortuary for many years prior to Eric taking ownership. The house needs many repairs after being abandoned and stripped, so I volunteer my time whenever I am available to help restore this once magnificent historic building. Eric has dedicated his life to the restoration. Ghost tours and paranormal investigations available upon request."
On the band's fourth studio offering, the perennial nucleus of brothers Nathan "Opposition" Jochum (vocals, acoustic guitar, kick drum) and Michael Jochum (guitar, backup vocals) is rounded out by new band member Connor Metsker on bass. Thematically, "33" largely continues the prior agenda of empowerment through Satanism, instinct, enlightenment, and ritual. 33 comes under the microscope on this recording and is regarded by the band as a master number. Jochum is quick to point out that it is the age that Christ was crucified, the age of the peak of existence, and the age he happened to be in making this album.
