Mansion stream video for Altar Sermon

Psychedelic occult rockers Mansion are now streaming the new video "Altar Sermon" below.

The track hails from the band's forthcoming EP, Altar Sermon, set for international release on October 23rd via Svart Records on 12" vinyl and digital formats. As mysterious as it gets, Finland's Mansion derive their moniker the local Christian apocalyptic “mansionite” cult of Kartanoism, which lived its glory days from the 1920s to the 1950s. Kartano is the Finnish word for mansion and is the surname of cult leader Alma Kartano. Fittingly, Mansion was brought together to create music strongly reflecting the life of the cult’s followers.

To date, Mansion have released two EPs, 2013's We Shall Live - which featured the video "Slumber Sermon" - and Uncreation the following year, which musically illustrated the mansionites journeying further on their crusade against the mundane and sinful with frightening conviction. With Altar Sermon and the title track's new video, Mansion present their most harrowing vision yet: in their own words, "the cinematic re-enactment of a mansionite ritual known as the Altar Sermon. Mansion's score for the captured moments includes a duet with Alma and traveling preacher Matteus. The soundtrack will be released bearing the title Altar Sermon on October 23rd. The flip-side of the release contains the song 'Traitor's Dirge.' In the song, the treacherous Tilda Reunanen regrets her involvement in our cause and is sentenced to the everlasting fires of Hell." (More info about the Kartanoism cult, around which the band's material and image are based, can be found here.)
