30 immolated; 16 returned's New Video "The Antechamber of Hell"
Hamilton, ON, Canada's obscene and brutal avant-garde quartet 30 immolated; 16 returned have a new music video inspired by the terrifying reimagining of Paulo Passolini’s infamous film Saló or 120 Days of Sodom based on The Marquis de Sade’s novel of the same name. "The Antechamber of Hell", which is a track off the band's 2019 self-titled debut album, is a video that might be too gruesome to watch and the band is giving a warning that it might be NSFW for some, so make sure you're in a safe space when viewing.
Dr. Death (garotte and vomit) adds:
"The video encapsulates imagery from the entire story including the abduction, torture, and eventual murder of a chosen victim portrayed by actress Xena T. With the aid of make-up artist Stacy Vervaecke, Duane Lyons of Bangover Media storyboarded, planned, filmed, and edited the video himself proving himself to be a force to be reckoned with in the metal video genre. The video perfectly reflects the band’s sexually sadistic lyrics and aesthetic appearance in the debut self-titled album."
