PopMatters premieres the video for "I, Satan", taken from Sabbath Assembly's portentous third album Quaternity, set for release on the 28th of March.

“The quaternity is the sine qua non of divine birth and consequently of the inner life of the trinity.
—Carl Jung, CW 11, para 125


“Quaternity”, a term coined by the theological teachings of the Process Church of Final Judgment, founded in the 1960s, relates to the existence of four deities: Christ, Jehovah, Lucifer, and Satan. According to their beliefs, the four dimensions possess their own powers of light, strength, destruction, and death—all of which individually challenge each other yet exist together within the pith of mankind. This ideology makes for an interesting and natural thematic base for Sabbath Assembly’s third full-length album, considering the unity of light and dark, good and evil, Christ and Lucifer has been extolled by the band since their psych-flecked folk debut, 2010’s Restored to One.

For those not keen on spending their St. Patrick's day in an Irish pub drinking green beer whilst strategically avoiding puddles of vomit on the floor, singer/songwriter Tim Larson's spare cover of the traditional "The Unquiet Grave" ought to do the trick.

For those looking to counter the consumerism of St. Patrick’s Day, singer/songwriter Tim Larson may have just the remedy. Larson has recorded a cover of the Irish standard “The Unquiet Grave”. Spare, evocative, and almost gospel-like, Larson’s take on the classic tune is perfect for those who prefer to have a quiet St. Paddy’s, without the allure of cheap green beer surrounding them. This “Unquiet Grave” is best accompanied by an Irish whisky in a dimly lit room.
