New Orleans orchestral/blackened doom metal collective Anareta share a music video for their new single »Black Snake«

New Orleans, Louisiana based orchestral/blackened doom metal collective Anareta share a music video for the third single »Black Snake« taken from their upcoming debut album, »Fear Not«, which will be released on April 8th, 2023.

This is a protest song against pipelines that crisscross waterways, despite widespread protest and concern over the health of our water and our communities.

Says the band: “Our very first music video is now officially out on YouTube! Thanks a million to film wizard Beau Patrick Coulon for this creation, we could not have trusted a better person to put imagery to our music. We especially love how the Super 8 Film captures the somber and serious atmosphere of the subject matter.

We think it perfectly captures the grim reality of the song’s lyrics. »Black Snake« pays homage to the water protectors who protested the Dakota Access Pipeline as well as the Bayou Bridge Pipeline and draws from the special connection with water that we experience here in the delta, at the junction of river and sea.”

“»Black Snake« is a recognition of the horrific and destructive forces of the oil industry and the commercial infrastructures that are imposed on our lands and across our waterways. The title stems from a Lakota prophecy of a black snake that would cross the land causing destruction and poisoning waters, and was widely used during the Dakota Access Pipeline protests to refer to the toxic contamination that oil pipelines produce across our land. These issues are not isolated, but global, as industry everywhere continues to contaminate and compromise our natural resources. This song is about water. Water is life, and through water everything is connected. With rage and grief we recognize what we have lost as water turns black.”
