Horror Music Video of the Week: Mater Suspiria Vision - 'Seance Infernale' [NSFW]

If you caught yesterday's review of the latest record from dark electro duo ∆AIMON, you got a little backstory on the growing “witch house” movement – a loose subgenre mainly comprised of horror and occult-based music with an eerie, ritualistic vibe and a chilling but often sensual presentation. While ∆AIMON haven't released an official video of their own (I'm sure when they do, it will be damn sweet), another prominent artist in the genre has conjured an visual collage to accompany their track “Séance Infernale” from the 2011 EP Seduction of the Armageddon Witches.

Comprised mostly of scenes from the 1978 erotic horror film Satan's Blood, “Seance” is loaded with explicit occult imagery (in other words, lots of sweaty, butt-naked satanic ritual scenes) as well as some skin-crawling images of a supernaturally animated doll, overlaid with cryptic symbols and psychedelic filters in a style reminiscent of '60s experimental films.

It's an ideal visual compliment to the single (featuring guest artists Scout Klas and the amazingly-named group How I Quit Crack), which is filled with unearthly moans, whispers and gasps, strange incantations, hypnotic electro beats and industrial noise soundscapes.
 
We'll delve deeper into the witch house phenomenon soon, but let's get this party started... and in case you didn't get the hint, this video is totally unsafe for work viewing.
 
 
[Note: I had this feature lined up before I got to see Behemoth's incredible “Blow Your Trumpets Gabriel,” which we posted earlier today. Definitely check that one out too, but be warned – it makes the sexy satanic shenanigans in this clip look like something from The Wiggles.]
