Omotai Debut New Music Video “Last Of The Green Vial”

Houston, Texas-based Omotai has issued the first of several new videos from their recently-released A Ruined Oak full-length, releasing the visual accompaniment for “Last Of The Green Vial” through a debut hosted by Invisible Oranges. Offers T.C. Woodruff who created the video for Omotai, “Their music has a lot of dread and paranoia, but as people, they’re quite a sarcastic, good humored bunch. I wanted to riff off all of that.”

See Omotai’s “Last Of The Green Vial” below.

Recorded by Chris Ryan at Dead City Sound and mastered by James Plotkin, Omotai’s A Ruined Oak album delivers an unrelenting dose of charged riff dynamics, pummeling low-end thunder, and infectious hooks. This sprawling, diverse work shows a greater range than anything Omotai has done before, with songs drawing from thrash, doom, sludge, extreme metal, hardcore punk, and post-rock.
