French Black metallers OTARGOS present the video clip for "Worship Industrialized", a song from last year's "No God No Satan" album. The clip was directed by Federico Anastasi (Undeci | Decimi), who had already crafted the video for "Cloning the Divine".

OTARGOS talk about this new video: "Once again, we asked director Federico Anastasi to work with us. We asked him to direct it cause we knew his talent and avantgardist artistic approach could perfectly illustrate the modern dimension of OTARGOS' music. We trusted his skills in original image capture, his talented screenplay ideas and the way he could lead the general visual concept.
"With "Worship Industrialized" we really wanted to get out of all clichés, out of usual atmospheres and shades in order to obtain a result that is faithful to the modern spirit and style of OTARGOS. We wished for something really personal.
"The purpose was to obtain a unique, violent, barbaric but also desolate atmosphere. The set is a post-apocalyptic burnt landscape in which evolves a mutated civilization that worship absurd myths from the past. This past is actually nothing more than our present. To reach this visual goal, we shot almost all the scenes in natural light. The epileptic picture effect is not the fruit of postproduction work, but the result of a simultaneous multicam capture, a genuine recording process designed by the director. It's interesting enough to be noted.
"With this video clip OTARGOS wishes to spread its contemporary image beyond the live performances and impose its "Dark Extreme Metal" style. It also represents the opportunity for us to get loose from the fundamentalist Black Metal scene with which we feel no affinity anymore. We closed a 10-year chapter with the latest release and this video masterpiece is just the beginning of a new era for OTARGOS. The next album is being prepared and it announces a time of change."
The band is now hard at work on the follow-up to "No God No Satan". OTARGOS' whole discography is available on Season of Mist's e-shop.
