Conclave Post “Aethereum” Video

conclave aethereum cover

However the usage came about, it’s hard to argue with bringing together footage of a star being torn apart by a black hole with the grueling, massive doom that¬†Conclave¬†bring to bear. The Massachusetts four-piece’s debut LP,¬†Sins of the Elders, is due out June 10 via¬†Lost Apparitions Records and¬†PATAC Records, and their new video for the track “Aethereum” reminds me of one of the very few things I miss most about having regular tv service: the NASA Channel.

I don’t know for sure, but I’d gather much of the footage culled together to make the “Aethereum” clip comes from video news releases — VNRs, for you Communications majors — and the NASA Channel used to show that kind of thing all the time. There’d be a brief explanation of what simulation or captured footage you were about to see actually was, and then they’d show you a clip of whatever length of awesome space stuff like sunspots, satellites shooting through orbit, planetary collisions, spacecraft design, really anything. It was awesome. Obviously¬†Conclave have curated that and edited it to fit the rhythm and what’s-bleaker-than-bleak-oh-yeah-dead vibe of “Aethereum,” but when it comes to space, cosmic-level destructiveness is part of the appeal.

So it is with¬†Conclave as well. If you missed it, the track “Black Lines” from¬†Sins of the Elders was previously streamed here. You’ll find the “Aethereum” video below, followed by more info from the PR wire.

Hope you enjoy:

Conclave, “Aethereum” official video

Sins Of The Elders is the forthcoming full-length from Massachusetts-based doom metal faction CONCLAVE. Captured at Raven’s Head Studio in Allston, Massachusetts with Eric Braunschweiger at the recording helm, with Sins Of The Elders the members of CONCLAVE — which unites Warhorse, Grief, Disrupt, Desolate, and Martyrvor alumni — fuse their death and doom influences into a unique amalgam of heavy grooves, pounding sludge and melodic doom.

Issues the band of the track, “‘Aethereum’ was written in minor keys with a feeling of darkness in tribute to the great forefathers of doom that paved the road before us. The lyrical concept is that of falling through space, time and all ethereal planes. It brought forth thoughts of the infinite vastness of space, the extremes of temperature, light and sound or absence thereof. Other parallels were drawn from the stories of World War II naval convoys traveling to Murmansk and the conditions those soldiers lived and died under. Hell is real and it extends beyond Earth and throughout the cosmos.”
