One of the rare gifts the pandemic gave us is remotely made music by collections of musicians who had a lot of time on their hands and a similar amount of pent-up creativity. Count Bagorah as one of those gifts. With members in Vancouver, BC, Seattle and Nashville, they collaborated the new-fashioned way—parts were recorded individually and combined to make the 10 tracks on their debut, The Art of Deviant Behavior.
Unsurprisingly, none of the members of Bagorah—Lenny Burnett (guitars), Richard Sims (bass), Tom Moller (drums), James Phillips (vocals)—actually appear in their latest video for “Secret Society.” Instead, they’ve assembled a collection of vaguely occcult-themed scenes that ably accompany the heavy progressive track which seems to sit on the ’70s Blue Öyster Cult side of Ghost’s Satan obsession. As such, it’s both creepy and sardonic.
The video was produced, directed and edited by Leggroom Studio. And the song can be found on the self-released The Art of Deviant Behavior, which is currently available on CD and digital formats here.
Here’s what the band had to say about their latest video:
“As much as we find Satan an entertaining visual image we wanted our video to capture other fringe ideology and practices to capture the vibe and lyrical content of this cut. To blur the line of wether the old man is merely passing on historical knowledge to his granddaughter or actually grooming her to continue his allegiance to a Secret Society.”
