Power Up, the 2020 album from Australian hard rock titans AC/DC, boasts an array of memorable tracks, each bursting with the energy and unmistakable sound that shaped the band’s legacy over the years. As such, the songs require fittingly stirring music videos.

“Through the Mists of Time” has been given that treatment with a new clip that debuted Thursday. A stylized, crisply edited video with some nice tributes to late vocalist Bon Scott late rhythm guitarist/songwriter Malcolm Young, it’s basically a visual trip through AC/DC history:

It’s the latest video shared from the Power Up album, which also included clips for “Witch’s Spell”:

“Realize”:

“Demon Fire”:

And “Shot in the Dark”:

Power Up brought back together Johnson, Young, guitarist Stevie Young (nephew of Malcolm), bassist Cliff Williams and drummer Phil Rudd with producer Brendan O’Brien, who previously worked with AC/DC for 2008’s Black Ice and 2014’s Rock or Bust.

Of course, Power Up doesn’t feature Malcolm Young, who passed away in 2017. But the album was very much made with his memory and influence in mind, so much so that Malcolm receives a co-write credit on each song on the album:

“This record is pretty much a dedication to Malcolm, my brother,” Angus told Rolling Stone. “It’s a tribute for him like Back in Black was a tribute to Bon Scott.”

And it’s as fitting a tribute as could be expected, given its relentless energy and the familiarity that is provided by that signature AC/DC sound.
