The lyric video for Pantokrator‘s new single ‘Wedlock’ can be seen below. The song is featuring C.J. Grimmark from the mighty and awesome band Narnia. The comeback of the Swedish death metal legends is well on its way, warming up for the full length coming later this fall with ‘Wedlock’.
You may think that this song is written from an entirely male perspective You would be absolutely right, and the video in and on itself is a celebration of the female form.
The lyrics were written by a man for the woman he loves. The music is written and performed by men for the women they love. It ought to have been on “Songs of Solomon”, but alas it came too late.
From us to you ladies ( you know who you are ). From all men who may listen, to the women they love. To all women who may listen, from the men that love them..
How beautiful are your feet in their shoes, you noble! The roundness of your hips is like the cups of a breastplate, made by the hands of an artist. Your womb is a rounded bowl, may the wine never be taken in it.
Song of Solomon 7
Pantokrator‘s latest album “Incarnate” has been released in early 2014 under Rottweiler Records (US/Canada) / Soundmass (rest of the world).
Incarnate is far from Pantokrator’s first rodeo on the bucking bronco of brutal, bone-breaking music. Pantokrator have released several albums –Blod, A Decade of Thoughts and Aurum – along with the Songs of Solomon split and a spot on 2002’s Power From the Sky compilation, showcasing Sweden’s finest “new wave” of metal. Pantokrator are just that, in fact—a new wave—combining grinding, jarring blast beats that tear at the listeners flesh and rend their skin, while incorporating bone-splintering and skull-splitting slams alongside absolutely visceral, throat-shredding screams. The immense and nigh-unfathomable levels of heaviness and technicality Pantokrator bring to the table is the spitting image of their namesake: “All powerful and Almighty”. While elements of their A Decade of Thoughts are deep, pensive and brooding, they are only matched by the boundless, relentless aggression to be found throughout Songs of Solomon and Aurum, showcasing the true magnitude of the bands multifaceted and multitalented nature.
Pantokrator embodies their moniker by reigning miles above the likes of their metallic peers by melding superlative parts aggression, technique, and musical prowess. With the calm, serene and ethereal elements of their instrumentation clashing with their proclivity to punish the listener with moments of back-bending, spine-shredding brutality.
