The “Grave Alchemist” full-length, a horror concept album that weaves a tale of alchemy, necromancy, and vampirism over the span of three centuries, is due to drop via Prosthetic Records April 14th. As a precursor to its release, today All Hell’s “Laid To Unrest” is unveiled in the form of a video – check it out below.
“As ‘The Grave Alchemist’ is essentially an album in two parts, we felt that Side A (Side Solve) needed to end with what felt like an album closer, thus the nature of ‘Laid To Unrest,'” elaborates vocalist/guitarist Jacob Curwen.
He goes on to say, “Conceptually, this song represents the dissolution of the Alchemist; a temporary state of death analogous to the dark night of the soul, linked to the alchemical processes of Putrefactio and Fermentatio. The Alchemist is struck down for his crimes and buried alive as he utters the Words of his Return. The video takes cues from German Expressionists, particularly Wiene and Murnau, whose silent works, infused with dark and powerful symbolism, have now haunted viewers for nearly a century.”
All Hell will further bring odes of odium to the stage for a short run of live dates this spring, with additional live incursions in the plotting stages.
