Baptists today proudly unveils a disturbing video for the title track off second LP, “Bloodmines,” released in October via Southern Lord. Check it out below, or over at CVLTNation.com here.
The Vancouver four-piece has made clear its surroundings, as both of the band’s LPs feature artwork which frame the thick and ancient West Coast forests. With the video for “Bloodmines,” we gain even further insight in to the condemning view that the band holds on the surreal relationship that exists between big business, tree cutters, and untouched nature.
Directed by Brian Sepanzyk, the visuals are overwhelmingly nervous and unstable, and glimpses of murderous intent and exploitation are to be found lodged somewhere deep in the vertical crowd of firs. The “Bloodmines” track listing is as follows:
3. String Up
4. Closed Ports
6. Harm Induction (streaming here)
10. Calling (listen in here)
11. For Profit
