Occult rock merchants ANCIENT VVISDOM today unveil their latest video for “Children Of The Wasteland” to North American masses via Metal Injection. The tune comes off the band’s A Godlike Inferno full-length, reissued via Prosthetic Records on April 24. Peep the sobering visuals at THIS LOCATION.
Recorded at The Bubble in Austin with engineer/co-producer Jason Buntz with additional instrumentation including the use of a bowed stand-up bass, machete/bamboo percussion and synths, A Godlike Inferno’s serpentine hymns continue to be embraced by critics and cultists alike. Terrorizer crowned the record “a haunting, riveting slab of acoustic-driven, Satan-loving mastery,” Metal Hammer championed the band for their “acoustically driven occult rock where each song is a spell,” while Metal Underground commended their “rich melodies and memorable chorus lines.” This Is Not A Scene agreed noting : “A Godlike Inferno strikes an engaging balance between light and dark, bringing the shadows into the sun without striking down those it want to impress, and impress it does, ” while Blistering added: “ A Godlike Inferno is dark…like the pits of the devil’s soul… Get this.”
Nominated for Best Underground Band at this year’s Metal Hammer Golden Gods Awards, the Austin, Texas-based diabolic folk metal collective are currently wrapping up a European tour, which marked their first time back on the road since supporting Ghost on an uber successful national jaunt earlier this year.
