Kaonashi Premiere “Humiliation Ritual” Music Video


Kaonashi‘s new single “Humiliation Ritual” was released online today. That track continues the experimental metalcore outfit’s long-running ‘Lemon House High’ saga, which has been playing out across various songs from the band since 2018.

Vocalist Peter Rono commented:

“‘Humiliation Ritual‘ reveals the origin behind Morgan Montgomery’s bully role in our story, while also touching on the topic of Black discrimination. It also stands out as one of our most unconventional songs because of how it was written. Pao, our drummer and Alex Hallquist, our guitarist, completely improvised the music, tracking together live at the same time while watching each other through a studio window.

After that, I recorded my vocals in one take to enhance the already chaotic feeling on the song. With such descriptive lyrics, we knew the video had to match that to give viewers the feeling Morgan felt.”
