Washington D.C natives Darkest Hour have teamed up with Noisey to premiere their brand new music video for “Enter Oblivion.” The track is off their latest album Godless Prophets & The Migrant Flora which was released last March via Southern Lord. The video was directed by the band’s vocalist, John Henry with help from director of photography, Ben Hoffman. Chad Fjerstad lend-a-hand by producing and editing the video. Henry describes picking out the right location and the theme of the song.
“I wanted to find a location that I felt would represent the nomadic theme of the song. When I came across Rainbow Basin outside of Barstow I immediately knew it was the right spot. There’s a real beauty about the bleakness and harshness of the desert which stands out as the true star of the video.”
Guitarist, Mike Schleibaum provided an insight as to why the band filmed a video for “Enter Oblivion”
“We chose the song ‘Enter Oblivion’ because it shows a different side of the album then we first presented. This song sits in the middle of the album and although it doesn’t crush with the same speed as the others it presents a depth that is all its own. The style of this song really allows for the band to breath sonically and the production of Kurt Ballou to really stand out on this track, especially in those drums! This is song for those who live outside of the borders of man and the laws of nature. For those who have found themselves in the act of constantly searching.”
