Dive into the Doom Abyss of ALTARETH “Satan Hole” Video Premiere

Change is the only constant, but humans cling to predictability. How futile is it to spend your life looking behind you at what used to be when there’s an entire future unfolding in front of you? On their song “Satan Hole,” Swedish doom psych band Altareth has pushed us deep into a pit of doom through layers of razor-sharp riffs! Their new album Blood comes out on November 5th via Magnetic Eye Records — pre-order it here. Watch the video for “Satan Hole” below…

“The Satan Hole” is the conclusion of a story written by our singer Paddy to try and take people out of their certainties and into areas of experience for which they are ill-prepared. It’s a tale of leaps of faith, of myth and reality, and knowing what to do when faced with an impossible choice. The initial flash was betrayed. The thing we used to call rock — it got decadent. This is the Satan Hole and it puts us in the position where we have to open up to new experiences. But how do you make a choice in this environment? That’s what the Satan Hole is about.

Paddy wrote the lyrics for the Satan Hole really fast and it came to him intuitively upon hearing the riffs and drums for the track. It kickstarts that overwhelming sensation of a really good party but in a Doom-laden context… it’s all about channeling that feeling directly from the source.
