Legendary death metal unit Morbid Angel have unveiled the unsettling new video for “Garden Of Disdain” from the band’s recently-issued “Kingdoms Disdained” full-length album. Produced by Nader Sadek, “Garden Of Disdain” is a tale of allegory and Sumerian-fueled vision. Bristling with gore and metaphor, Sadek has created a disturbing piece that depicts the darkest, most hopeless sides of the human condition.
Nader Sadek explains:
My intention is to create a visual parallel to the song, a theme which repeats, yet within the loop-lay textures are controlled twists and turns. It was a bonus that I had the opportunity to use Sumerian iconography as well as obscure symbols of the pre-ancient past such as the Merkaba, a galaxy-roaming vessel.
Morbid Angel bassist/vocalist Steve Tucker adds:
Nader does some of the most interesting and dark visual art I have ever seen. We were excited to work with him and see our musical ideas put into such amazing visuals!
The band is currently in the midst of a U.S. headlining tour. The month-long trek kicked off on April 16th and will run through May 17th with support provided by Origin, Dreaming Dead and Hate Storm Annihilation.
