[News] The Answer Lies In The Black Void unveil the official music video for the track “Virgin Fire”

Atmospheric Doom Metal collective The Answer Lies In The Black Void featuring members of Thy Catafalque and Celestial Season have just revealed a music video for a new song titled “Virgin Fire,” which is taken from the band’s forthcoming second album “Thou Shalt,” scheduled for release next week, October 13th via Burning World Records. Watch the video through the YouTube player below:

The band comments: “The Virgin Fire was created using the GEN-2 AI software, modelling the dream-like surreal and occult images that visualise The Answer Lies In The Black Void’s universe. Our second album Thou Shalt is inspired by the concept of Carl Jung’s shadow and “Virgin Fire” deals with the concept of the dream state according to these works of Jung : “The dream is the small hidden door in the deepest and most intimate sanctum of the soul.”
