Farsot Releases New Video

Experimental black metal band Farsot will release third album, "Fail-Lure," on April 21st via Prophecy Productions / Lupus Lounge. In advance of the LP's release, today a new video for "The Antagonist" comes online and can be seen below.

"Fail-Lure" is conceptually inspired by the Peter Greenaway film, "Drowning by Numbers," which won the award for Best Artistic Contribution at the 1998 Cannes Film Festival, as well as Art Nouveau works such as Khnopff's "Ishtar," Klimt's "Water Serpents," Kotarbinski's "Kiss of Medusa," and Schwabe's "La Vague."

The record’s art features a sculpture by French artist Denis Lavoyer that depicts a female idealized with threatening, claw-like branches for arms, addressing the inevitable dilemma between fascination and mania and seeming rifts between the sexes; it is an allegory of life as an endless game that cannot be won.
