Portland-based progressive sludge metal unit LORD DYING have unveiled their captivating new video for ‘Freed From The Pressures Of Time’. The powerful track comes off the band’s Mysterium Tremendum full-length, released last spring via Entertainment One (eOne).
Comments guitarist/vocalist Erik Olson of the Brett Roberts-directed clip: “The video was filmed on location in the countries that made up former Yugoslavia. It highlights both the beauty and strangeness of Spomenik (WW2) monuments, some of which have been forgotten by the sands of time. Enjoy!”
LORD DYING‘s critically-lauded Mysterium Tremendum was recorded at Los Angeles’ West Valley Recording Studios in August of 2018 with producer Mike Plotnikoff (Fear Factory, In Flames), mastered by Howie Weinberg (Slayer, Nirvana, Pantera, Red Hot Chili Peppers), and comes enveloped in the planetary landscape-inspired cover art of Steve R. Dodd. A massive, riff-heavy concept album borne out of personal sorrow, Mysterium Tremendum delivers eleven lead-footed tracks that explore death and what may or may not lie beyond.
LORD DYING will return to stages next month on a North American tour supporting label mates Black Label Society and Obituary.
