Arkhamin Kirjasto Releases New Video Clip For "Sea Of Madness"

Today, Arkhamin Kirjasto premieres the new video for “Sea of Madness,” which comes from the band’s recently released debut album, “Torches Ablaze.” Check out the video below. The following press release was also issued:

“Released on September 5th by Ektro Records, ‘Torches Ablaze’ is exciting and bewildering listeners alike with its Lovecraftian take on weirdo melodic death metal (or, as the band puts it, ‘from Angel Witch to Morbid Angel’). ‘Sea of Madness’ is a provocative embodiment of those elements, and its similarly/eerily provocative video can be viewed below.”

“It wonderfully crafts a vision of disturbed mind,” says vocalist/drummer Samae Koskinen of the Mattyr Hekuma-directed video. “The video captures brilliantly the feel of the song. It’s much more Lovecraftian than tentacles and piles of green goo.”
