Lights out: Menace Ruine

crude remains beyond redemption
contorted faces
swallowed up by the darkness
of the gap to be part

The video above is made by Frédérick Maheux, the music is by the Canadian duo Menace Ruine. I think it sounds like Dead Can Dance and The Velvet Underground (with Nico) got together for a sceance using Darkthrone equipment in Wardruna forest. Or: a ritual drone/noise gathering with blackmetal overtones. Very dark but surprisingly melodic.

The songs are both from the album The Die is Cast.
