New York City’s avant-garde black metal outfit Imperial Triumphant present you their mesmerizing yet disturbing video to “City Swine” from their fourth studio album “Alphaville” (out July 31st). Go check it out HERE!
The band comments:
“In the depths of the big city lurking beneath the lowest forms is a wretched swine that can be of no use. Laughing somewhere above is an equally wretched swine, that dumps on everything in its path. Both serve no purpose, are ineffective, and remain unprofitable in the eyes of the big machine.”
