From Earsplit PR:
En Minor has unveiled a new video for »Mausoleums«. The solemn track comes off the project’s long-awaited debut full-length, »When The Cold Truth Has Worn Its Miserable Welcome Out«, set for release this September via Housecore Records.
An experimental and eclectic musical endeavor that finds founding frontman Philip H. Anselmo (Pantera, Down, Superjoint et al) exploring a softer, graver vocal style, En Minor is an honest and deliberate change of pace delivering brooding tales of pain, regret, and sorrow. At once ugly and beautiful, En Minor features the collective talents of Stephen Taylor (Superjoint, Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals, Wovenhand, 16 Horsepower), Kevin Bond (Superjoint, Christ Inversion, Artimus Pyledriver), Jimmy Bower (EyeHateGod, Down, Superjoint), Calvin and Joiner Dover (The Dover Brothers), and Steve Bernal (former first cellist in the Temple Symphony Orchestra).
Writes Decibel, “In five minutes the song captures the raw, wounded heart of »When The Cold Truth Has Worn Its Miserable Welcome Out«. The video’s sullen sepia tone and time-lapse videography fittingly match the crawling clean guitars and evocative cello. Like the flowers that will inevitably wilt outside the video’s titular mausoleum, Anselmo’s vocals feel like they’re withering with the seasons. Not every song on the album is as morose and monochromatic as this single, but there’s little sunshine to be found…”
Adds Anselmo, “We were not able to shoot the video we initially had in mind because of the pandemic, but the video rendered is beautifully somber. I’d like to thank the crew responsible for putting it all together and I hope you enjoy it.”
