Cyclops Cataract unleashes visualizer video for “The Unforgiven Dead”

The Scottish black/death metal outfit Cyclops Cataract has released a new video for the track “The Unforgiven Dead”.

The song is part of the new album “The Bestiary”, released on June, 5th via Planet K Records.

Watch the video in its entirety on the label YouTube channel.

Formed in 2020, in Scotland, a group of like-minded individuals have come together to create Cyclops Cataract! Having come from different backgrounds within their local metal scene in the North East of Scotland, they bring together death metal, black metal, grindcore, and elements of progressive/ambient.

“The Bestiary” was recorded and self-produced from January to April 2021 in Aberdeen, Scotland. Traditionally a Bestiary would be a collection of different creatures, in essence, an encyclopedia of different beasts. Each song depicts a different creature, based on Scottish folklore and legend. From the Orcadian legends of the selkies in “Second Skin” to the villainous redcap of the Southern borders in “Crimson Wrath”.
