Omaha, Nebraska’s two-man entity known as TETELESTAI recently released their official video for the song “The Dead We Do Not Mourn“.
There are some interesting factors relating to the visualizer, the first being that it features a guest, Sean Ingram of Coalesce. If you were lucky enough to be enjoying underground music ala post-hardcore in the ’90s and early 2000s then you should immediately recognize both of those names.
TETELESTAI somehow convinced the retired Ingram to not only contribute vocals to the track but to also step into the video’s spotlight with an appearance. It is a most fitting collaboration, as the music of TETELESTAI is reminiscent of Coalesce’s own sound. Dissonant chords, abrasive beats, gruff, gut-wrenched vocals… it is all here in “The Dead We Do Not Mourn“.
Another cool relation is that the video is the first of four planned, one for each track of the duo’s just-released debut 7″, ‘Crvsh Svtvn‘. It is out now from A New Heavy and is available to purchase HERE.
