ABNORMALITY Release Music Video For ‘Catalyst Of Metamorphosis’ Track
November 2nd, 2016

Marlborough, Massachusetts-based death metal group Abnormality have filmed a music video for the track ‘Catalyst Of Metamorphosis’. Directed by Jim Foster for Red13Media Inc., the clip can be viewed below.

Drummer Jay Blaisdell commented: “Overall, the song is about applying the concept of cymatics (the effects of sound and vibrational frequency on matter), to tripping hard on shrooms. Basically it’s describing the trip of all trips. A hallucinogenic experience so intense that the auditory hallucinations experienced actually cause a cymatic alteration to the persons physical reality and existence, or even everyones physical reality and existence. It’s a pretty fucked up scenario. I personally have had really intense trips with both visual and auditory hallucinations. The sounds hallucinated are always indistinguishable from the real vibrational sounds. The whole concept has always intrigued me.”

Director Jim Foster added: “As we embarked on our second video together my goal was to portray Abnormality’s intense energy on a large scale while bringing their concept of a ‘trip’ into the darkness of the mind into a reality. And as always, Metal Blade is incredibly supportive in letting bands and directors see their visions through.”

Abnormality issued second full-length studio album Mechanisms Of Omniscience on April 29th, 2016 through Metal Blade Records.
