Death metallers Venom Prison unveil a music video for “Slayer Of Holofernes”, taken from their fresh release “Primeval”. Watch it below.
The band comments:“”Primeval” is a collage of different releases that are interwoven with a reinterpretation of religious imagery and criticism. “Slayer of Holofernes” follows that theme. The scene from the book of Judith, follows the protagonist’s character and actions as a challenge to the dominant patriarchal narrative within religious writings. We wanted to create a connection between this powerful tale and the art that Eliran Kantor has created for “Primeval” through the use of water, depicting Larissa in an ethereal way and through inflicting pain via various methods of water torture on the male character.”
“Primeval” is “a snapshot of the earlier days of Venom Prison, simpler times where we locked ourselves in a room for days on end to create the early incarnation of what would be our first collection of songs.” They continue: “Our first release/demo “Defy The Tyrant” was subsequently born, and we never thought this would lead onto being picked up by Prosthetic Records or touring the world. This became a starting gun for touring and festivals in between the studio to write, including what would become “The Primal Chaos”. Given the current climate and the global pandemic situation we felt it was appropriate to package together our early material so that it is presented in a form of how it was always intended. This is what you hear now. Our previous EPs plus two new tracks to give you an idea of what is to come in future.”
