When Nocturnus AD dropped their Paradox debut LP earlier this year, Decibel hailed it as the true follow up to the band’s 1990 sci-fi death metal classic The Key. Obviously, the music was paramount in that observation, but the keen visual aesthetic was just as large as a, um, key. The Dan Seagrave-styled cover art of Timbul Cahyono definitely tugged the nostalgia strings, capturing the classic vibe of The Key, but that was just the beginning as the band has now unveiled a video for “Apotheosis.” And it features everything a Nocturnus nerd could hope for, including but not limited to:
- Mike Browning headset mic
- Full animation of the cyborg from the The Key and Paradox album covers
- Keyboardist limited to thrashing where he’s at
Ok, there’s other rad stuff, but they could have stopped there and it would have still totally ruled. Anyway, check it out below!
