One of mellow tracks from O.S.I.’s latest album, Fire Make Thunder, now has a video…

The official David Lynch-ian video for PusciferTelling Ghosts” is now posted on their official YouTube account…

It was shot by Tim Cadiente (Barton Perreira) and Meats Meier (3D Art Space) and edited by Mat Mitchell (Puscifer).  The video brings me right back to seeing them in Seattle in November 2011 (review with photos here).

Get the amazing album, Puscifer’s Conditions Of My Parole, over HERE.
