MOLOKEN: Swedish Progressive Sludge Faction Unveils "Seventh Circle" Video
Swedish progressive sludge act, MOLOKEN, recently unleashed their brand new full-length,
All Is Left To See, via Temple Of Torturous. In conjunction with its release, today the band has teamed up with Revolver Magazine to premiere their new music video for the track, "Seventh Circle." The clip was caught live while the band performed at Discouraged Festival in Umeå, Sweden in 2014, and showcases MOLOKEN as a highly visual band as the sleek light design flawlessly complements and expands the experience of their already multi-dimensional music.
"'Seventh Circle' deals with the painful acknowledgment that you have reached the end of a circle on your life path," explained the band of their latest psalm of sadness. "And in order to move on, you have no other choice than to dive deep into yourself, accepting your pain to be cleansed and reborn. All is left to see. There's a storm coming and Hell follows in its wake; my vessel capsized; waves come rolling and all is set loose. Beneath a raging light, into the darkness from whence I came..."

Out now globally via Temple Of Torturous All Is Left To See is MOLOKEN's first studio offering in four years. Recorded mostly live by Pelle Henriksson at Tonteknik Recording (Refused, Breach, Cult Of Luna, Meshuggah, Entombed), the record boasts thirty corrosive minutes of some of the band's most eclectic, engrossing and traumatizing compositions to date and includes the stark and twisted cover renderings of Costin Chioreanu (Bloodbath, Paradise Lost, My Dying Bride, Ulver etc). A monolithic wall of dread and despair shrouded in sulfuric atmospheres and an overwhelming sentiment of desolation,MOLOKEN's All Is Left To See centers itself around a lyrical concept called mörkrets kärna (Swedish for "darkness core"), and serves as a veritable soundtrack to falling into a pit of misery, depression and paranoia, dragging down loved ones and trying desperately to make sense of it all.
All Is Left To See is available for purchase on CD and digitally HERE.
