The only video I can recall ever getting round to watching of Saint Vitus was on a reissue of their seminal album ‘V‘, which featured grainy black and white footage of Vitus playing at The Palm Springs Community Centre in 1986. ‘V‘ happened to be the last Vitus album that featured Scott ‘Wino’ Weinrich on vocals, until this year with the recent release of comeback album ‘Lillie: F-65‘. Those ever supportive chaps at Scion A/V have gone as far to put out a video for the album’s opening track ‘Let Them Fall’.
Directed by Michael Panduro of Siegfried Productions (who has shot vids for Cephalic Carnage and Rotten Sound among others), it’s a bit of a strange one. It’s basically a lot of people apparently in some sort of agony or screaming at the sky, with no sign of the band at all. That said, the song itself isn’t half bad, with Wino’s signature vocals over the top of Dave Chandler riffs again! I’ve not yet heard ‘Lillie: F-65‘ in full but this song is a good omen of what to expect from the return of one of doom metal’s overlords.
‘Lillie: F-65‘ is out now on Season of Mist records.
