Obsidian Kingdom are revealing their video for “Meat Star”, the first song from the band’s upcoming album. It features a top-notch production where classical myths and tarot archetypes crash into each other inside a minimal theatrical set.
The band comments: “Reminiscent of the magickal works of Alejandro Jodorowsky or Kenneth Anger, MEAT STAR is a bizarre dream-like odyssey where symbols old and new walk hand in hand to convey a powerful message. The meaning of your existence will eventually find you, and the price will be some kind of death. MEAT STAR is a song about accepting hardship and pain as a means of discovering your true purpose. And the transformation and sacrifices you must undergo once you’ve committed yourself to that very goal.
It is the soundtrack to the crucifixion, to the dismemberment of Dionysus and to the drowning of Osiris. It is an ode to the regenerative power of endings, once you’ve realized that surrendering is the only way to win.”
