Swiss extreme metal legends Samael (whose frontman Vorph was recently interviewed here,) has posted a new video online for the song, "Rite Of Renewal." Speaking about the video, the band stated:

"This is the first song from 'Hegemony' that we presented live and it became an instant classic. The video was shot in Les Docks in Lausanne during the first show that followed the release of 'Hegemony,' it was latter edited by Sergey Ulyanov who previously worked on other visuals for us. The song itself is a mid/up tempo track that shows a more technical side of our music. The dynamic is kept by altering fast and dense parts with open and heavy ones until the grand final with super heavy riffs and apocalyptic keyboard parts. What better title for a song than 'Rite of Renewal' to start a new year? 2018 here we go!"

I liked this one, had kind of a Rammstein vibe to it.
