Video Premiere: Arallu – Philosophers
Metal of death, quick and dirty.
When you hear death metal, the country of Israel is probably far from the first place that pops into your head. This isn’t without reason, as though it has produced Melechesh, it isn’t exactly Colorado circa 2018. There IS another quality death metal act from the region, and one that’s been doing their thing for over two decades. If you aren’t familiar with them, we’re giving you another opportunity to hook up with Arallu.
Playing a blackened style of deathly thrash that’s easy to fall for, Arallu hit hard and fast and leave quite the impression after first listen. Their latest album, 2017’s Six(appropriately their sixth full length), is an absolute banger in every sense of the word, and if you were a fool like me and missed it,then you should course correct and give it a listen ASAP. Need some convincing? Well we have the video premiere for that album’s penultimate track right here for you today!
Much like the music that they play, there’s nothing overly fancy here. This is down and dirty, fast paced camera pans and faster guitar work all as the lyrics flash upon the screen and vanish like a child hopped up on his first monster. That things get very Blair Witch-y at the end is an especially nice touch. So what say ye, toilet folk? Ya dig? Sound off in the comments below.
