FAUSTIAN – Lambgoat Premieres Debut Video “Birth of Apparitions” From Louisiana Death Metal Marauders (ft. members of Barghest, etc.)


Louisiana death metal trio FAUSTIAN — featuring members of BarghestKavyk, and others — has premiered its debut music video, “Birth of Apparitions,” via Lambgoat. The band’s self-titled debut EP is out now via Black Lion Records.

directed by: Dusty Cooper

“Our goal was to make the video as gritty as the song and subject matter,” says guitarist/vocalist Dallas Smith. “With help from the filmmaker, we were able to incorporate creative visuals that tell the story behind the track. The final product is just as bleak as we hoped it would be.”

Directed by Dusty Cooper (Troy Bennett’s Graveyard Lips), the video sets a violent scene in which a drug-addicted victim (Steven Ban) meets his fate before his reawakening as something else entirely.

Recorded by James Whitten (ThouHigh on FireEyehategod), Faustian delivers a unique style of blackened death that seamlessly shifts from razor-sharp maelstrom to dirge-like grime as the three-piece meld violent urgency and claustrophobic atmosphere into a frenzied sonic catharsis.

The album’s haunting cover art is a 1870 painting from Polish artist Adam Chmielowski titled “Death and conflagration from the Disaster triptych.”
