LIGHTNING SWORDS OF DEATH’s “caustic yet otherworldly method” (Decibel Magazine) has earned the band high praise from fans and press worldwide with their most recent cd, Baphometic Chaosium. The band also recently released their first ever songs video. The video for Baphometic Chaosium and was directed by co-founder and prima donna, Autarch (aka the metal illustrator, Farron Loathing). The job, which also marks Autarch’s directorial launching, is the outcome of a collaboration between Farron Loathing and Mortichrome Movies. It is explained by its creator as “a psycho-dramatic interpretation of the Mass of Mayhem and the invocation of Baphomet as performed by a cumulative of ritual efficiency artists.” Watch the video now at
