Hecate Enthroned Premiere “Revelations In Autumn Flame” Video

Hecate Enthroned have premiered a new video for their new song “Revelations In Autumn Flame.” This track is from the band’s new album “Embrace Of The Godless Aeon,” which will be released on January 25.

Bassist Dylan Hughes said the following about the song:

“Revelations is about modern religious fundamentalism being a reaction to a rise of secularism and a rise in people being more educated about the universe and abandoning belief in God because of it. It’s about theistic religion almost in its death throes and becoming more extreme because of it, but a more enlightened mankind will come through this and ‘rise like a phoenix from the flames'”.

He also added the following about the video, which was shot during the group’s recent performance at the Tabernacl Chapel in Llandundo, North Wales:

“Where better to shoot this video than in a chapel during a dark cold December in North Wales? The show was set up on the pulpit in front of pews filled with a congregation of metal-fueled blasphemers, their breath visible in the cold, dank air. The atmosphere created the malevolent and darkly energetic performance caught in the video, recorded by our good friend Dan Cookson and edited by Jeff Grindstopher of Grindstopher Productions. Watch closely throughout for the ongoing threat from the enveloping icy embrace of Cthulhu.”
