Tar Pond - 'Slave' Unleashed

"Slave", the second single from Swiss doom metal visionaries Tar Pond's upcoming second album Petrol (due out September 15, 2023), has premiered online in the form of an official music video.

Vocalist Thomas Ott commented: "Produced simultaneously with the clip for "Blind", we approached the visuals for "Slave" in a quite different way. This dark and heavy song rather evokes simple and slow images. Thomas had some interesting shots of jellyfish floating in dark water. So we decided to shoot some additional material of the band performing in the rehearsal room, filled with a maximum of smoke. That quickly turned out to be a bad idea because of the fire alarms installed in the building. But with the kind help of some good old friends, Marky managed a much better location in no time. Initially, the video for "Slave" was planned with more varied footage, but Fabrizio Merico’s sublime camera work, shot in only one night at the Zukunft Club in Zurich, and the absolute professional editing by Daniel Stoessel (Coroner) made Tar Pond decide to just let it all go up in smoke!! Sometimes less is more!"
