Wildernessking – “I Will Go To Your Tomb” (Premiere)


I’ve been trying to find a place for Cape Town, South Africa’s Wildernessking on Invisible Oranges for some time. Their 2012 album The Writing of Gods in the Sand came across my radar at a time when I felt a tremendous optimism for black metal. Panopticon’s Kentucky had just been released and most people were only hearing Cormorant’s Dwellings for the first time. I felt the genre embracing folkish melodies and aiming for elegant musicianship.

The years since have not born that future out completely but Wildernessking still play slick, melodic and engrossing black metal on their upcoming second album, Mystical Future. Producer Jack Shirley (Deafheaven, Crowhurst) has polished their aforementioned Cormorant-isms to a mirror shine, as evident in “I Will Go to Your Tomb.”

Wildernessking applied the same polish to the “I Will Go to Your Tomb” music video as well. Some creative editing and high-contrast photography come together to create a video that celebrates the landscape and traditional culture of South Africa while hinting at the country’s troubled and often violent past.
