HELLEVATE Launch Music Video for "Dagon"

Kansas City thrash masters HELLEVATE have posted the official music video for "Dagon," off their newest EP The Purpose of Cruelty.

"Dagon" takes inspiration from the Lovecraftian mythos, specifically the short stories "Dagon" and "The Cats of Ulthar." HELLEVATE vocalist Robert Browne says the track was intended to convey "a gradual, conscious dissolution of sanity."

The Purpose of Cruelty features five aggressive tracks of classic speed/thrash metal with a modern attack. A violent hybrid of East Coast and Bay Area thrash, the EP shows why HELLEVATE has been called “a new hope for thrash” (All Around Metal).
