Promidal “Transcendence” Song/Video Review



Song/Video Review

By Allyson Kingsley




A bit of background of course before I introduce the video for the song “Transcendence.” Promidal was originally called Leak and was formed in 2005 as a solo trance/hardcore dance project by TerrorEyez (vocalist, programming). In 2008 Promidal came into bringing a darker side to the music. Add Apostate (guitarist), Rooster (bassist), and Slain (drummer) and throw in a passion for Lovecraftian blackened industrial EBM and you have a bedlam of wicked sound. Taken as the band quote on their Facebook page, they describe themselves as:

In 2016 Promidal were signed by Zombie Shark Records owned by Noah “Shark” Robertson (ex Motograter). They have been working on their Lovecraftian themed album Magnum Tenebrosum and “Transcendence” is their first release.



The video for some reason reminds me of the 1990 cult film Begotten (It's on YouTube) meets an electronica Cradle of Filth. Which I am going to have to purchase the album by Promidal and play it along to Begotten because I am just nerdy like that. But I digress. The video is wild, the costumes of the band and (?) serial killer are kind of Texas Chainsaw Massacre style. In the video a red haired woman is fleeing from her would-be killer but alas, the ghoulish band members get to her first and then finish him off. But a twist at the end, when she and her failed killer are made whole and wander off with the ghastly group. The musical tempo is sinister and the vocals are perfectly evil. It's rather hard to explain so just watch and appreciate the art of it.
