Final month, UK sludge crew Conjurer revealed particulars for his or her new album Pathos, together with the primary single from the document, “It Dwells.” Each track and its video had been singularly disagreeable, illustrating how Conjurer plan on sustaining the model they developed with 2018’s stupendous Mire. Now, the band have launched one other single, this one known as “Rot,” and spoiler, additionally it is aggressively darkish and jarring.
If there’s a phrase that involves thoughts witnessing Conjurer’s “Rot” video, it’s ‘Device.’ The observe itself nonetheless brandishes the band’s patented combination of heavy low-end and pained disharmony, and makes use of it to nice impact. It’s a rad track, and one which the band must be happy with. However the video is straight-up ’90s Device, with heaping doses of water harm, gentle via slats, fish-eye lens digital camera work, and other people shivering on the ground. Toss in some questionably-human faces and the drummer in some way becoming right into a tenement toilet, and also you’ve received your self a dream of MTV after hours in 1996. The upside of that is that it would imply that Conjurer is our technology’s Device, which might be rad, but additionally form of telling (and God assist future generations).
Say the band of the observe and video:
“‘Rot’ appears to be like on the similar matters of tension, concern, and despair that function in It Dwells and flips the angle/narrative. We needed to hone in on probably the most visceral and disgusting elements of our sound once we had been writing it and, together with the lyrics, play with the thought of giving that concern and dread a voice. (It’s not very good.)”
