Venom Prison Release Video For New Single 'Slayer Of Holofernes'
Pulverising Death Metal juggernauts Venom Prison have shared crushing new song 'Slayer Of Holofernes' and its accompanying official video.
'Slayer Of Holofernes' is included on new album 'Primeval', out now via Prosthetic Records, which combines re-recordings of two early EPs, 'Defy The Tyrant' and 'The Primal Chaos', plus two new tracks.
The band elaborate, "'Primeval' is a collage of different releases that are interwoven with a reinterpretation of religious imagery and criticism. 'Slayer Of Holofernes' follows that theme. The scene from the book of Judith, follows the protagonist’s character and actions as a challenge to the dominant patriarchal narrative within religious writings.
We wanted to create a connection between this powerful tale and the art that Eliran Kantor has created for 'Primeval' through the use of water, depicting Larissa in an ethereal way and through inflicting pain via various methods of water torture on the male character."
