First look at video from this year's Hadès album

Paul Régimbeau's been a busy man this year. As well as releasing Hadès, the fourth album under his Mondkopf name, in February, he took his current grindcore listening habits and made another full-length as Extreme Precautions, banking heavily on the blastbeats. You can stream Hadès in full over at the In Paradisum Bandcamp (sadly the vinyl has now sold out), while Extreme Precautions' I has very limited copies left.

Now, ahead of a double-header he's playing over the next two nights at label-curated events in Paris - he's on alongside Emptyset and Run Dust as Mondkopf tonight at The Trabendo, while tomorrow he's playing as Extreme Precautions, joining Shapednoise, Morphosis, Qoso and Low Jack at Small Bathroom - In Paradisum have kindly given us a first look at the video for Hadès' slow-burning 'We Watched The End', a weighty cut from the album's latter end, equal parts gorgeous ambience and hefty bombast. Watch that above and catch Mondkopf at the Berghain supporting Clark - keep your eyes peeled for a Baker's Dozen with him on tQ today - on December 3, while he'll be at Islington Metal Works in London to mark the Extreme Precautions album's release, turning in a Mondkopf DJ set as well, on December 6.
