This is the Official Cavalera Conspiracy “Babylonian Pandemonium” Music Video – directed by Thomas Mignone for DOOM Incorporated. Max and Iggor Cavalera have worked together many times with Mignone, including the Sepultura hit videos for “Roots” and “Slave New World”. The idea was to make a video that could visually reflect the brutal, assaultive tone of their new album’s music. The video’s imagery conveys the raw emotions of Brazil’s impoverished people percolating just beneath the surface of the country’s natural beauty. There’s a strong sense that chaotic pandemonium could break out at any moment. The video depicts this powerful dichotomy. Filming was done in the cities of Brasilia, Sao Paulo, and Rio de Janeiro. Cinematography is by Bruno Santiago. The video features the paintings of acclaimed artist Stephan Doitschinoff as filmed by Gui Morelli. Producer is Thamires Gomes. Editing and post-production VFX is by Alex Meza.
