Technical blackened death metal trio Solace Of Requiem has released the official music video for "Soiling the Fields of Putridity." Taken off the band's newest album "Casting Ruin," the song and video both address religion's choke hold on science. Stream the censored version below. The band comments:
"This video was entirely self-made on a very small budget. We hope you enjoy what we have created.... The men in gas masks represent the pioneers of science, technology, hard work and progress. They also represent the many martyrs of science that have sacrificed so much in the name of logic and reason.
The shrouded figure represents organized religion and its paralyzing veil of ignorance, apathy and segregation. The Slave Girls represent the innocent victims that are born into a society that has enslaved them without their consent nor their knowledge.
The Slave Master represents the false prophets and self-proclaimed deities that have used their dogma to advocate oppression and barbaric behavior. The landscapes represent the common reality we all share with each of the groups represented within them. In essence, the landscapes offer an insight into the true reality, which is ultimately left unchanged."
