Slayerking release a new lyric video for “Sanatana Dharma” from their debut album introducing us the story of Sargon Of Akkad. Romanian Costin Chiorenau, famous for working with Paradise Lost, Opeth, Triptykon, At The Gates, Napalm Death, Arch Enemy created the dark video artwork. “The story of Sargon, one of the earliest of the world’s great empire builders, is still fascinating today. He was an orphaned child that crossed the river inside a basket and saved by a humble man, a gardener, who grew him as his own child. There, in the land of Noah and Abraham, where the three faiths of one god originated, he became the beloved leader and founder of the Akkadian Empire. As every being he too came to an end, despite his virtues and luck. That very end that we all meet no matter how great our deeds have been. Time is a beast that despises all things man creates. It consumes everything and what leaves behind we call it monuments to remind us of the eternal fight against it. Time is ruthless. It dissolves empires and lets them ruins for others to see. Much like crucified beggars alongside Roman avenues we are reminded of our defeat.  Apparently, the moments we share my dear will be eaten up by the worms of Time…
