Watch: ‘The Final Act of Geng Yaoting’ by The Poisoned Glass with Richard Forbes-Hamilton

Posted: 21 November 2015 in Recommended Streams and Videos

Ritual Productions recently announced the signing of The Poisoned Glass, a duo comprised of two members of the legendary doom band Burning Witch – vocalist Edgy59 and bassist G.Stuart Dahlquist. Ahead of their album, 10 Swords, scheduled for release in 2016, they’ve paired up with artist Richard Forbes-Hamilton to produce a short film by way of an album trailer.

The film entitled ‘The Final Act of Geng Yaoting’, by artist Richard Forbes-Hamilton, uses a mixture of oil painting and digital animation to tell a terrifying tale of the process between dreaming and dying; the conscious and unconscious. Made ever more chilling with Dahlquist’s droning detuned bass, siren-like organ and Edgy59’s unbridled and jarring tenor, the film offers sonic snippets of new The Poisoned Glass songs ‘Low Spirits’, ‘Toil and Trouble’ and ‘Plume Veil’.

It’s as dark as hell – and makes us eager to hear the album. You can watch The Final Act of Geng Yaoting below.

The Poisoned Glass will also be touring Europe in the spring of 2016. Dates are as follows:

14th April – Roadburn / Green Room – Tilburg – NL

15th April – Magasin4 – Brussels – Belgium

16th April – Bastard Club – Osnabrueck – Germany
