Aosoth premieres ‘Ritual Marks of Penitence’ music video

Unlike an aimless artsy French film, Aosoth touch their cinematic roots with their newest video Ritual Marks of Penitence for their forthcoming album IV: Arrow in Heart, to be released April 16th. Don’t expect any hipster imagery or pop metal from this French Black Metal tour de force. Aosoth focus on the more unsettling of images [&hellip
