With its fuzz-ridden, crushing guitars, seismic rhythms and anthemic vocals, Australia’s King Zog and their self-titled debut are must-listens for stoner doom enthusiasts. Though originally released back in May, the 10-track riff monster will be getting the vinyl treatment on December 1. In preparation for its wax debut, we at Svbterranean bring you the official video for one of the release’s catchiest tracks, “Temple’s Temple”. The band offered the following statement regarding the clip:
“People seemed to respond positively to the song Temple’s Temple from the album, so we decided to shoot a video for it. The song is about going into battle in ancient times, and wondering what it must have been like to face up against berserkers or giant Vikings who believed they’d feast in eternity in the hallowed halls of Valhalla. Basically the thought of just shitting yourself seeing these maniacal giants coming at you with axes and massive swords. With that in mind I wanted to superimpose ancient visual depictions of battle over the band while we were miming along to the song, surrounded by a now-compulsory ludicrous wall of amps.”
