Frontman Sakis Tolis comments: "Dear friends, we proudly present to you our second official lyric video created for a song taken from our current album 'Rituals'. The song 'Le Litanies de Satan' has been inspired by a fascinating literary masterpiece, namely Charles Baudelaire's grand creation 'Fleurs du Mal'. These dark flowers have been greatly enhanced by our long-time friend Vorph from SAMAEL, who has kindly lent us his amazing voice to read the original French text. We cannot thank him enough. Enjoy this unholy beauty!"
