When I wrote up “Swollen And Halo” and talked up Baroness’ Blue Record, I told you to keep watch for the Joshua Green-directed video for another standout, “A Horse Called Golgotha.” It’s here and it’s suitably intense considering the Golgotha reference/Calvary pun. The clip features a bald, bloodied, and muscular savior/modern dancer involved in various tasks/tests that make him want to lift his arms in the air and/or scream: The sun rises and eclipses on the back of his head, he vomits black tarry bloody, he’s reborn via a trip to a psychedelic interlude, etc.
