First look at video for promo for A Visitation From The Wrath Of Heaven from last year's Return To Annihilation LP

Chicago alt. metal trio's prog opus album Return To Annihilation was one of our top metal records of last year, with our columnist Toby Cook writing: "Owing as much to John Carpenter sound tracks as it does to the brilliantly torturous use of build and warmth so misunderstood by a million post-metal bands; magnificent isn’t the word".

Today, they've shared the J.P Bradburn-directed video for 'A Visitation From The Wrath Of Heaven' from the record, coinciding with the band announcing live shows in Europe in April (have a look below). We've got a first watch of the film, of which the band's Terrence Hannum says: "John Bradburn has crafted a nightmare-like vision from our song by flipping personas, timelines, settings to muse upon the nature of surveillance and identity" - take a look above and get hold of the album at Relapse.
