Like something out of a dream, the video for Mater Suspiria Vision’s ‘Seduction of the Armageddon Witches’ is haunting, surreal, visually jarring and steeped in symbolism.
The theme that unites the whole story is the duality of humans: femininity and masculinity. Inherently, the video explores how to get a foothold in this present time: restoring the importance of femininity in men, and the importance to women in a society governed by the largest patriarchy, the Catholic Church.
Director Diego Barrera explains “The apple brings to mind “Adam and Eve”. Rather than Satan’s temptation for knowledge, this symbol for me has a special meaning of purity. The woman, or the female side, emerges victorious at the end of the video, because she can “mix” with this purity. While the man, because of his violence, is not able to hold the apple in his hands and destroys it. Also this purity is related with the mankind approaching to their animal side.”
Mater Suspiria Vision’s music has mostly been released through Youtube and can be considered Trance/Visual.
