BAEST Premier "Ego Te Absolvo" Music Video
August 10, 2018, 7 months ago
Danish death metallers Baest, whose moniker translates to ‘beast’ or ‘brute’ in the band’s native language, have released "Ego Te Absolvo", the third single from their forthcoming debut album Danse Macabre.
Set for release on August 17th via Century Media Records, Danse Macabre offers an intense Messe Macabre uniting influences from the likes of Bloodbath, Dismember, Bolt Thrower, Entombed and 90’s Morbid Angel with uttermost savagery.
Baest comments: "'Ego Te Absolvo' - I absolve you. (Mortui Vivos Docent. Learn from the dead.) The last track of Danse Macabre frees the human shell from its shackles, and condemns its pathetic remains to eternal solstice. Prophecies and promises crushed by thundering truth. Heresy is forever.”
Filmed by Jens Karlsson and Lasse Rønne at several shows and also edited by Lasse Rønne, the "Ego Te Absolvo" video throws you right into the explosive live shows of Baest, bringing their ferocious Messe Macabre straight to your home. Watch the video below.
Danse Macabre will be released as 180 gram vinyl plus CD, as jewelcase CD, and on all digital platforms. Apart from regular black vinyl, the following limited colours are available:
