Just days ahead of the release of a debut album, cult metal collective John Frum has now dropped a video for new song, “Wasting Subtle Body.” Check it out below. The band’s new record, “A Stirring In The Noos,” will be available for purchase and stream via Relapse Records on May 12th.
The video for “Wasting Subtle Body” was directed by Mitch Massie (Cattle Decapitation, The Locust) and is a mind-bending depiction of a terrifying ritual with haunting visuals. Massie comments:
“One thing I was really excited about with this project was to shoot nature in a way that depicts the character’s inward journey. I didn’t want to use the weird sex and death stuff I tend to do. This project was to be the beauty of nature herself! I went way out there with my camera and tried to get my inner hippie excited about tickling chakras, absorbing energy from stones, bathing in nature’s blushing design…but all I found in mother nature was death and fucking (in macro).”
The mysterious John Frum is the manifestation of four musical minds coalescing in a collective consciousness developed from time spent playing with The Dillinger Escape Plan, The Faceless, John Zorn, Cleric and many more elite projects.
