Black Absinthe teams with their long time live photographer Dylan Weller to bring you "Call of the Void". The single location shoot converts the band’s rehearsal space into a blood-tinted abyss. Quick shots and twitching effects reflect the erratic and destructive thoughts of the songs lyrics. Over three thrashing minutes, the video concludes with the band’s fractured off-shoot of their home base, corrupted by “l’appel du vide”, known as the call of the void.
This is the second single off their upcoming album On Earth Or In Hell, out March 27th.
The band comments:
"A thought, urging us to swerve into oncoming traffic or jump from the balcony ledge are contemplations of the mind found in reality. The French have a phrase for it, 'L’appel du vide'. But where are these intrusive thoughts coming from? Is this instinct misread as temptation on our journey to survive? Or a defensive mechanism towards danger.
This song has been crafted from the insanity of our live sets and now, 'Call Of The Void' can be heard with immense power and production that brings the listener towards, and back down a razor's edge. We channeled SLAYER, TESTAMENT, and the swirling descent of ANTHRAX's 'Madhouse' when diving into the musical bridge of demonic harmonies, thick lead solo, and chest pounding stops that are carried throughout the song. The lyrics decipher the mystery of a severed instinct, no logic can explain. This track is meant to be explored at a high volume.”
