Late last month Irish death dealers Overoth released their second full length The Forgotten Tome via Hostile Media. With no less than ten tracks and over 40 minutes of extreme metal laden with orchestration, and artwork from none other than Will Simpson (Game Of Thrones, DC Comics), the quartet’s grand opus has seen praise from fans and the metal press the world over.
“If there was ever a perfect example of what death metal is, I would have to say that this would be it.” said one writer from Mayhem Music Magazine, while Dayal Patterson of Metal Hammer stated, “The Forgotten Tome is, above all, a very ambitious album, carefully constructed and not afraid to draw from different sources in order to create as powerful a sound as possible.” New York based writer Matt Bacon recently published on his website that “The Forgotten Tome is perhaps the UK’s best death metal offering to be,” while Paul Castles posted on Antichrist Magazine that the album was a “frostbitten steamroller with the blastbeats descending form the heavens like meteors, while further barbed wire riffage ensures hostility levels remain racketed up the max”.
Today the band has teamed up with Overdrive to reveal the second video from the album, a track entitled ‘God Of Delusion’. Watch the video here: http://www.overdrive.ie/overoth-unveil-god-delusion-video-watch
Filmed by Adam Edgerley and edited by Chris Bevan, ‘God Of Delusion’ was filmed in a dying wood in County Down, Northern Ireland. “It was a real nightmare of a location to get to,” states the band. “The wood itself was quite dense, so there was no chance we’d get our vehicles close to the location we had scouted, so with nothing but manpower we had to lug all our gear, generators, lights, camera gear, up and over hills, over streams and dead tress… they were everywhere… and it was a little sketchy at times, because we were surrounded by these massive trees, that with not much force would and were falling over. Needless to say, we all got out alive.”
