False Light Constructs

Obsydians

Single cover art and lyric video for Swiss industrial metal band, Obsydians. This image was created for their first single, False Light Constructs, which depicts a death portal in a space void of time. We are witnessing a man submit to the welcoming light of death, only to have his brain stripped from his disintegrating body. The ancient Obsydians symbol is half-buried and harnesses the power of the portal. Its design and surroundings are purposely dangerous to act as warning signals to deter people from the false promise of ascendance. Wavy textures help convey the ominous power in the air, while digital and analog elements represent the futuristic nature of the synths used in the song.

Client: Obsydians

Release Date: April 13, 2018
