Rocks Off Exclusive: Venomous Maximus Premiere "The Mission" Music Video

Houston's Venomous Maximus have made their first music video, directed and edited by Bryan Forrester, for their song "The Mission" from last year's EP of the same name. The video, a spooky black-and-white affair featuring strobe shots, raven witches, and the band playing in the woods, is Forrester's first clip for the band besides a few promo projects.

Forrester previously worked with listenlisten and Hell City Kings. The clip came from a brainstorming session between lead singer Gregg Higgins and Forrester.

Filmed in a wooded area in Conroe during the wee hours of the morning, with the strobe lights on set nearly making a hungover Higgins and guitarist Christian Larson pass out from... enlightenment?

The band has been playing quite a bit in Austin with locals Ancient VVisdom, plus getting a great reviews for The Mission from all over the metal world. Their next show here in Houston is opening slot for Eyehategod on May 13 at Fitzgerald's.

Venomous is also on the supporting roster for stoner-metal heroes Saint Vitus' Fitz show on May 31, naturally.
