Cleric Releases New Music Video

As Texas-based Cleric -- the vile death metal faction featuring members of Kill the Client, Baring Teeth, and Tyrannosorceress and more -- prepares for the release of debut album "Gratum Inferno," today the band proudly fans the LP's raging flames with a blazing new video for the track "Through The Starless Abyss."

Check out the video clip below, courtesy of InvisibleOranges.com. Directed by Shane Connelly of Photon Flood, "Through The Starless Abyss" was filmed in the dead of night in a very rural undisclosed location in Emory, Texas.

The multi-camera execution captures the members of Cleric fully encircled by a raging bonfire while they hammer out the song, bringing the concept of the "Gratum Inferno" title literally roaring to life. And what could be more metal than praising Satan surrounded by fire and death in the middle of the night?

Cleric Reveals Album Release Date

Dallas death metal battalion Cleric will crush the weak with a disparaging debut LP, "Gratum Inferno," through Tofu Carnage Records this fall, the label now confirming the street date for the record as September 26th. The following press release was issued about the band:

"Formed by members of Kill the Client, Baring Teeth, and Tyrannosorceress, Cleric fuses their old-school death metal aggressive tendencies here into a relentless attack, which their Gratum Inferno LP attempts to capture in full-force.

"Recorded by Garry Brents (Kill The Client, Phobia, Noisear) and mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege (From Ashes Rise, Nails, Sleep), Gratum Inferno boasts nearly a half-hour of grating, Stockholm-bred but Americanized death through seven hymns of debauchery, bizarre, haunting and horror-soundtrack elements permeating from deep within its hellish core.

"The platter is being pressed on 200-gram, translucent yellow wax with blood red and milky clear splatter and features heavyweight spot-varnish printed jackets, gold foil-stamped inner-sleeve graphics, was mastered at 45rpm for superior sound quality, and bears insane cover art was masterminded by Jason Barnett (Noothgrush, etc.).

Cleric Streaming Debut LP

A fairly brand new name to the genre, Dallas-born death metal entity Cleric will leave a memorable impression upon the scene soon enough, as a debut LP is approaching, confirmed for release on local independent label Tofu Carnage Records. The following press release was issued about the band:

"Formed by underground combatants from Kill the Client, Baring Teeth, and Tyrannosorceress, the members of Cleric are no stranger to all things brutal and visceral, and they fuse their old-school death metal aggressive tendencies here into a relentless attack. Recorded by Garry Brents (Kill The Client, Phobia, Noisear) and mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege (From Ashes Rise, Nails, Sleep), Cleric’s debut full-length LP, Gratum Inferno, boasts nearly a half-hour of grating, Stockholm-bred but Americanized death through seven hymns of debauchery, bizarre, haunting and horror-soundtrack elements permeating from deep within its hellish core.

"Not only designed to be experienced aurally, Gratum Inferno is for those who truly appreciate the aesthetic value of deluxe packaging and heavyweight color vinyl. The album is pressed on 200-gram, translucent yellow wax with blood red and milky clear splatter and features heavyweight spot-varnish printed jackets, gold foil-stamped inner-sleeve graphics, and was mastered at 45rpm for superior sound quality. This is an album that was truly meant for vinyl. The original and insane cover art was masterminded by Jason Barnett (Noothgrush, etc.). Gratum Inferno will see its proud release via Dallas’ Tofu Carnage Records -- responsible for quality vinyl releases for Dead To A Dying World, Akkolyte, Unconscious Collective and Ecocide -- in mid-September, with an official street date pending.

"Amped on releasing the crushing debut, Tofu Carnage set up preorders for the album early, and hooked up with Cvlt Nation to stream Gratum Inferno nearly two months before its proposed release. Uncage the audio and illustrative iniquity of Gratum Inferno for yourself right here."
