ARCANA 13 have a new music video out for their track “Dread Ritual”. The clip can be viewed above courtesy of Bloody Disgusting. Drummer Luigi Taroni comments:
“We strongly believe that within ARCANA 13, the visual aspect is almost vital as the music itself. There’s no doubt Mario Bava planted one of the very first seeds of Italian horror with Black Sunday, that is why the choice to use his masterpiece as the first released video was a no brainer. Black Sunday aka La Maschera del Demonio is the one that started it all, released in 1960 it was banned for years and later earned worldwide cult status. It also launched the career of Barbara Steele, The Queen of Horror. It’s terrifying and wonderful at the same time and our main muse and inspiration. The song written to this very movie is ‘Dread Ritual’, one of our first compositions and the opener to Danza Macabra: a thick doomy tune laid down on meaty riffs and ominous atmospheres with a super heavy psych ending.”
The song is taken from the band’s forthcoming album Danza Macabra, which is set to hit stores March 11th through Aural Music. Pre-orders can be secured today at this location.
