Anareta has shared the video for their third single, "Black Snake"
Anareta is a New Orleans based blackened-orchestral doom band combining western classical music structures and instrumentation with brutal, intense metal. This week the band has shared the video for their third single, "Black Snake" from their debut album, 'Fear Not,' due out April 8th 2023.
Here's what the band had to say about "Black Snake":
"'Black Snake' is a recognition of the horrific and destructive forces of the oil industry and the commercial infrastructures that are imposed on our lands and across our waterways. The title stems from a Lakota prophecy of a black snake that would cross the land causing destruction and poisoning waters, and was widely used during the Dakota Access Pipeline protests to refer to the toxic contamination that oil pipelines produce across our land. These issues are not isolated, but global, as industry everywhere continues to contaminate and compromise our natural resources. This song is about water. Water is life, and through water everything is connected. With rage and grief we recognize what we have lost as water turns black."
