Legendary death metal unit Morbid Angel unveiled the unsettling new video for "Garden Of Disdain," a song taken from the band's recently-issued "Kingdoms Disdained" full-length. The video premiered over at Noisey at this location, but you can check it out right here in the player above.
Produced by Nadar Sadek, "Garden Of Disdain" is a tale of allegory and Sumerian-fueled vision. Bristling with gore and metaphor, Sadek has created a disturbing piece that depicts the darkest, most hopeless sides of the human condition.
"My intention is to create a visual parallel to the song," offers Sadek, "a theme which repeats, yet within the loop-lay textures are controlled twists and turns. It was a bonus that I had the opportunity to use Sumerian iconography as well as obscure symbols of the pre-ancient past such as the Merkaba, a galaxy-roaming vessel. "
"Nader does some of the most interesting and dark visual art I have ever seen," says bassist/vocalist Steve Tucker. "We were excited to work with him and see our musical ideas put into such amazing visuals!"
