Beastwars Celebrate the Stronger Sex in “Witches” Video


If you have yet to listen to the new album by New Zealand dark metallers Beastwars, The Death of All Things, I urge you to go do so, and if you have not seen Robert Eggers’ The Witch, I advise you to do so as well, for the same reasons. Both are brooding, atmospheric examinations of mortality, desperation, and darkness.

Beastwars’ new video for “Witches” hits many of the same notes as Eggers’ film. In it, the band has been replaced by witches–not just women, but women channeling strange powers commonly untouched. More so, it does not approach these inauspicious forces with cluttered pentagram and disembowled clergymen, but rather with simple imagery that gets at the guts of the dark arts.

Watch “Witches” below. The Death of All Things is out now on Destroy Records.
