🎶 🎞MUSIC VIDEO PREMIERE!!! 🎶 🎞 : Norilsk - “Weepers of the Land”!

Funeral rites and its iconography have a long history of weepers, or weeping figures – sad, heavy characters mourning the deceased. “Weepers of the Land” is a nod to the expression 'keepers of the land,' most often used in an indigenous and/or environment-related context, while referencing a less glorious side of history.

 "There are a few bands in the world that use a Russian city as their name: Finnish Doom crew KYPCK, American outfit Minsk, Canadian sludgers Astrakhan, and not forgetting Leningrad Cowboys and Radio Moscow.
