DREAD SOVEREIGN - New Video Released

Just a view days after their special appearance at Acherontic Arts Festival, Irish doom metal act Dread Sovereign unleash a video clip of the song "Spines Of Saturn". Dread Sovereign is the born dead brain child of Alan "Nemtheanga" Averill from Primordial. Years of string hacking and slashing on guitar have finally come to realization as backed by Dubh SOL (Primordial) on drums and Bones (Wizards Of Firetop Mountain) on guitar they have forged a new band. The blueprint is rough, raw old school doom metal which hails of Venom, Saint Vitus, Cirith Ungol and touches of late 80s early sepulchral black metal.
Singer/bassist Alan Averill comments about the video: ""Spines Of Saturn" is a strange trip... partly inspired by a DMT trip that took me through space to Saturn to gaze upon DNA strands hidden in the rings partly inspired by a trip to Chernobyl and the decaying and dead school rooms filled with the drawings, dials and test machines of the old Soviet space programme. The quest for knowledge of the cosmos crippled by a massive nuclear disaster that nearly wiped out much of Western Europe and the fall of communism. Somehow it all made sense to tie them together and here we are... Spines came together the day before recording For Doom The Bell Tolls and marries the spirit of Hawkwind with maybe what we could call some form of 'space rock'?... and hey you can dance to it too... take the trip." The video also contains footage that Nemtheanga shot at Chernobyl!Video was made by the eminent Costin Chioreanu and you can watch it in the player below. The track "Spines Of Saturn" is taken from Dread Sovereign's latest album For Doom The Bell Tolls which was recently released by Ván Records. Link
