The doom metal heavyweights in Lord Mantis have released an incredibly bleak and NSFW video for their song ‘Possession Prayer’. I’m not just throwing adjectives out there, either. Bleak is an accurate description of the seven minute and fifteen second clip you’re about to witness. If you feel up to it, you can see it in all of its glory after the jump.
Just like the album it comes from, this is intense and chock-full of nihilism. The rope bound imagery and the visual representation of longing to find something within only to tear yourself apart is haunting, to say the least. It definitely gets its point across effectively, though I don’t think I’ll be returning to this video often. That’s just for the sake of my sanity.
