Singer Jason Lekberg Revealed as the model for Pantera’s Vulgar Display of Power Anniversary Graphic Novel and Record Re-issue as Painted by the World Famous Paul Booth
Complete Recording Follow Up EP ‘Noct’ with Ulrich Wild (Pantera, Deftones, White Zombie)
NYC metal band NEFARIANT have released the music video for their second single ‘Tonight’ off their debut EP Fowl. The video release celebrates the NEFARIANT debut to a sold-out headline show in Brooklyn on February 28th 2020, two weeks before the world went into lockdown. “This video is a celebration of the city we call home. With its resilience, attitude and striking skyline, it only felt right to create a video as powerful and moving as the song it was for” said Nefariant pianist Paul Cibrano. ‘Tonight’ was directed by Matthew Brewster and Christoph Manuel of ENGN RM. Watch the video here and stream the EP Fowl here.
Vocalist Jason Lekberg has also been revealed as the model for the deluxe cover of Pantera’s Vulgar Display of Power graphic novel created by Z2 Comics which includes a Vinyl Re-issue of that album. World famous tattoo artist Paul Booth painted the image and asked Jason to sit as the model for his interpretation of the moment after the iconic punch featured on the original album cover. Jason Lekberg says of the experience “As if being friends and working with the legendary Paul Booth wasn't enough, I am honored to have been used as the subject for his interpretation of one of the most important albums in my life. The Pantera camp surprised us by making it the cover of the Deluxe vinyl reissue of the album as well as their new Graphic Novel and 14-year-old me is losing his mind."

Nefariant have also recently returned from The Wilderness in Los Angeles where they have just finished recording their follow up to Fowl, titled Noct, with producer Ulrich Wild (Pantera, Deftones, White Zombie). A release date for this EP will be announce in the near future.
