Video Premiere: Paragnosis’ “Hindsight” Video Is Like The “Paranoid Android” Video But With More Eye Mutilation
In Matthew 18:9, it reads, “And if your eye causes you to sin, tear it out and throw it away. For it is better for you to enter life with one eye than to have two eyes and be thrown into the fires of Hell.”
Which makes you wonder just how much sin NYC-based instrumental prog metallers Paragnosis have seen. The band’s new video for “Hindsight”, a song from their upcoming album Clarity In Three, is chock-full of eye-plucking. But that’s not all–there’s also eye-eating, mauling, animal mutilation, and blind cults that worship plucked-out eyes to consider! All of this animated in a cool, down-to-earth doodle style a la Radiohead’s “Paranoid Android” video, which somehow makes this all the grosser and creepier.
Does this sound unappetizing? Then don’t watch the video, but listen to the track! Paragnosis sound like a weird mixture of Mastodon, Animals As Leaders, Pelican, Tempel, and just a hint of Mutoid Man. Fans of any of those bands, and of heavy-hitting prog in general, will dig on hindsight even if they’re averse to cartoon gore.
MetalSucks is very pleased to premiere this sick tribute to eye mutilation. Watch “Hindsight” below. Paragnosis are playing at Dingbatz in Jersey tonight, and have a gig coming up at Lucky 13 on Friday, July 6th, so go check out the madness live, and keep up with them on their Facebook, Instagram, and/or Soundcloud pages. Clarity In Three drops August 31st.
